420 is literally a national holiday for cannabis enthusiasts, and nobody does it bigger and better than the Bay Area! Recently, People’s Cannabis held a launch party in West Oakland to celebrate their newly launched line of affordable 100% cartridges.
You probably know the plant by its nicknames: marijuana, weed, ganja, oh wee, mary jane and countless others – so don’t be confused when reading and hearing about cannabis, which is the actual name of the plant. Whether or not the use of cannabis vs. marijuana is to turn the page on perception and criminalization is a conversation for another time.
People’s Cannabis founders, Abram Yocom & Elvis McGovern head up Weird Science Labs, their Berkeley-based manufacturing lab. The new cartridge line comes in three strain varieties: Indica, Hybrid, and Sativa. Priced at $20 per cartridge (depending on the dispensary) these cartridges will be a welcome addition to the market. With taxes and overhead, dime bags are forgotten memory that will date you you in todays cannabis culture.

The swag bags were full of goodies (not pictured, microwave bag of pop-up potcorn). I purchased the tea for a friend.
As attitudes and laws regarding recreational marijuana change from state by state, there’s a growing crop of newbies searching for products to try. Whether looking for a little relaxation or something to aide pain management – there’s so much more than bongs, and joints these days.
