Seeing as the world is currently a living nightmare, let’s all take a break together. A break to get toasted and think happy thoughts. So, grab your bong, pack your bowl, and take a rip. Now, sit back and relax. Follow my instructions, and by the end of this meditation exercise, your mind will be clear and your heart full. Now, take a deep breath. Hold it.
I am looking forward to the future of cannabis content. There are a lot of great people out there working to make sure cannabis marketing stays relevant, engaging, and entertaining. And I am happy to be one story teller helping brands develop the creative that will resonate with their audience.
I will be back with more updates soon, but in the meantime, it’s back to work for me. Now where did I leave my bong?
So it has happened. You have gotten too high. Way too high. Like, “wait, did I just say that? Am I talking? Can you hear me? Wait, am I reading your mind?” high.
Your friend swore that joint was a low THC strain. They claimed that edible hardly had any cannabutter in it. They were adamant about how that vape pen would give a “clear” high. Whatever bullshit they told you, all you know is, right now, you are high as a cucumber. And just the thought of salad makes you want to cry. And then you have the thought…
I wish people would stop asking me if they should, “learn how to code” in 2019. Because what they are really asking is, “will learning this seemingly important skill improve my life?” To which I answer, “sure, maybe, I don’t know. I swear, this is going to be the last time I smoke you out if keep asking questions like this.” Now where was I? Oh yeah…
What I mean is, along the way I have learned how to code, create websites, advertise, market, design graphics, etc, etc, etc. Basically, I acquired all of the skills a person needs in order to make money from the internet. And that used to be my job, to make money for other people from the internet.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Now that the season of gift giving is mostly over; I want to answer a few questions people are bound to have if they received any CBD based products for the holidays. I was asked these questions by my family members during Christmas dinner, so you are not alone in your confusion. Here are my answers to the most common questions:
Someone gave me CBD oil/tincture/vape pen/lotion/etc. Will it get me high?
This is the most common question I was asked during dinner. And the answer is… it depends. You see, there are two ways of making CBD based products.
It is almost New Year’s! We made it to 2019! You already know what your resolution is going to be. You are going to quit your crumby job doing (who gives a rat’s whistle) and start working in cannabis. Why not? You already consume it; might as well sell it!
Slow down there Tommy Chong
“Ardin, I want to work in cannabis, but I don’t have XYZ. What should I do?” Simple answer, get whatever XYZ is. But that’s not always easy to do…
I am very happy to announce that I am now a brand ambassador for Supportive Naturals. I am the first comedian/entertainer they have made an ambassador, so I am honored that they chose me. As an ambassador, I hope to show how Supportive Naturals supports me in my daily comedy life.

It has been a hard year for everyone
The holidays are a time of the year when I naturally get depressed. I could be on top of the world, but as soon as December rolls around, it is time to buckle up for an emotional rollercoaster of a month. It is that way for a lot of people. You see us putting on our happy face, going to Holiday parties, getting together with family, and visiting friends. But under the smiles and hugs, we are having a tough time. And I have a feeling that this year, with all of the things going on in the world, a lot of people will be experiencing this feeling for the first time. So I thought I could write this blog post to help us all get through it. Because no matter how you feel today, tomorrow you could feel different.
While I am working on a couple of longer blog posts (that seem to require much more editing than usual) I wanted to share a quick thought:
Take time to celebrate the small successes in life.
I am my own worst critic. Especially when I’m depressed. That’s why it is important to acknowledge when you have achieved something. Even if it is returning to something you used to do. And on that note…
I owe a few people back episodes of Coffee and Cannabis (which I intend to release soon). But this is the first interview I’ve booked in a while. With the stress of moving to, and getting settled in, Los Angeles, I haven’t had time to work on the podcast. So I’m happy to celebrate my return to doing Coffee and Cannabis on a regular basis.
Like I said, more blog posts to come. As well as podcasts. And, fingers crossed, maybe something special for YouTube by New Year.
Last time I checked, we are living in the future (a 1980’s movie future, but still the future). And maybe it is my privilege talking, but I figured we would have a few things figured out by now. Sure, we’re getting flying cars in the next few years. But we still can’t figure out how to make a website useful on the freaking Internet! Let me explain:
In the past couple of years, I’ve filed for unemployment at least once (because I have my life together, aside from the whole ‘having a job’ thing). Now, do you know what I had to do to file for unemployment? Go on the Internet.
I had to go to a computer, click on a web browser, and go to a website. This is something we are all familiar with (unless you’ve been handed a printed copy of this blog, in which case, who killed a tree just so you could read this?). So, I’m looking at the Unemployment Office website. And on this website they explain the steps to file for unemployment benefits. They are as follows: Continue reading “Everything Wrong With The Internet – Topic: Unemployment”
