Speaker 1 (00:00:07) - In this week's episode, we're talking all things four 20.
Speaker 1 (00:00:12) - Welcome to Bite Me, the show about edibles where I help you take control of your high life. I'm your host and certified gong Marge and I love helping cooks make safe and effective edibles at home. I'm so glad you're here and thank you for joining me today. Welcome back friends. We have a fun episode today. But before we get into it, I just wanna say thank you. Thank you for joining me and being here and making all of this possible because it wasn't for you. I'd be talking to myself and that would just be sad
Speaker 1 (00:00:48) - And we don't want that. We don't want sad, we want happy. And that's what this episode is all about. So there's actually a recipe for this week's episode because I thought this show is now actually almost four years old. It's really hard to believe actually. And I'm pretty sure that the four 20 holiday has never actually fallen on a Thursday, which is when I released the episodes. You may not be listening to it on a Thursday or on the actual four 20. Hopefully you're doing something grand, but whatever you're doing, I hope you're gonna be having a good time maybe enjoying some edibles, some good smokes, something cannabis related, even if it's a cannabis talk book topical that you're putting on a sore body part cuz Lord knows cannabis can help people in all various ways and uh, someone who suffers chronic lower back pain, well you know, some of that uh, some of those topicals really do help me out in my own circumstances. So celebrating cannabis doesn't have to mean smoking up getting ripped or anything like that. It can be whatever you want it to mean. However it means most significantly to you. This week's episode is going to be fun. I have a couple things that I've put together, but the cannabis fun fact is where we're going to start.
Speaker 1 (00:01:58) - I can't actually hear if those are coming through. So I guess we'll see during the edit. In any case, I have a couple of fun facts here for you as far as four 20 goes. And the first one is that in 2013 the state of Colorado switched the mile marker four 20 to four 19.99 because people kept stealing it. And that's not surprising. I suppose if I had the opportunity to put a four 20 sign up in my office along with all my other cannabis paraphernalia in here, I might do the same but appears I'm not the only person to have thought of that and many people have made off with the Denver mile marker of four 20. So that is the first fun fact of this week. Likewise, hotels have ditched the room four 20 like it's the 13th floor. Now this is something I have never paid attention to and I think next time I know I'm in a hotel, which isn't actually that often, but then next time in fact I don't stay in hotels like large hotels like that too often at all.
Speaker 1 (00:02:58) - Although I was in one actually last month, I wish I had thought of this, thought to check it but pay attention the next time you're staying at a hotel and you may notice the conspicuous absence of a certain room number four 20 because some hotels go through the awkward trouble of skipping the number four 20 to avoid signs stealing in weed, smoking in the room that would otherwise bear the mark of the green beast. So yes, next time you are in a hotel enjoying the luxuries of a home away from home, see if there's a four 20 or not. Perhaps as fact, perhaps it's myth, maybe it depends on where you are. Maybe it's more common in certain states or provinces or jurisdictions than others. Maybe depends on how many weed smokers are in those places. But what I do know is I'm definitely gonna be checking that out the next time that I'm staying in a hotel which I'm hoping will be soon.
Speaker 1 (00:03:52) - I have uh, some special events coming up very soon and I would like to get a night away. I think that'd be lovely. Finally, the next fun fact of the week for four 20 as coined by the Waldos. The term was originally four 20 Louie, so if you are unfamiliar at this point, the waldos were the original group of teenagers that came up with the term four 20. So four 20 origin stories abound, but the most accepted and arguably most documented is that of the Waldos, a group of teenage tokers from San Raphael, California who have meet up at four 20 in the afternoon after school to track down an abandoned weed patch not far from their home. Depending on who is telling it, the Waldos story typically credits the grateful dead for the proliferation and broad use of the term four 20 in weed culture.
Speaker 1 (00:04:42) - But when the Wallows first started using the term throughout the halls of the San Raphael High School they went to in 1971, they would shout four 20 Louie to indicate that they'd be meeting at their high school's statue of French chemist Louie Pasta. And from what I'm reading here, I would say that most of that is relatively accurate based on the great moments in weed history episode that I listened to re recently and I will link to that in the show notes as well because I thought that was a really well done uh, retelling or account of the origin of four 20 and how it came to be and how it is all these God 40 years later that we're still celebrating four 20 or saying it's four 20 somewhere every afternoon most days. And I think if I recall correctly, they actually spoke to some of the waldos who are still with us, which is pretty interesting.
Speaker 1 (00:05:36) - So I definitely recommend that episode if you're interested in the history of four 20 where it came from. So link to that in the show notes. Next up we have, I was gonna hit another thing on my soundboard but the glare does not let me see it properly and I can't hear it coming through my headphones so I don't know if it's actually playing properly. So maybe I'll skip that for now. But I am am introducing a new segment called Weed Word, the Weed Word segment. Did you know, and I covered this in a fun fact not that long ago in one of the episodes that or cannabis fact that there are over 200 slang terms for cannabis 200 and you can, I'll actually link to that also in the show notes, the Wikipedia list because it has a pretty exhaustive list of all the slang terms you could probably possibly think of, but I'm sure it's not complete.
Speaker 1 (00:06:25) - Well I shouldn't say that. Many of them were ones you've heard. There's probably lots you haven't heard of and a lot of them might be regional of course. So I went and I turned to you folks and I said, Hey, what's your favorite weed word? I know I have several that I tend to use in, in everyday vernacular. When you have a choice of over 200, how do you refer to the plant that's near and dear to your heart? I find myself, I use the word cannabis but that's pretty formal and a lot of other times I'm using the word weed, which I guess is pretty boring. But I also like slang terms like jazz, cabbage, devil's lettuce, those are two of my favorites. So I'm turning it over to you. What is your favorite weed word? If you send me a message on the podcast hotline, I will share your responses in the show because I think it's so much fun depending on where you are, where you live, those slang terms can really vary quite a bit. Now of course you don't have to get fancy, but a couple people that I reached out to initially did have some fun stories to share.
Speaker 4 (00:07:28) - Well merge. So some um, some terms for good friend Mary. Um, alright so we've got some ganja, some reefer smoke, some dank Chiba chronic fire, some icky sticky, some turf or some grass turf being hash , um, wacky to backy, uh, smoking the El Jamaican wood bowls, you know, eh, some green then for fucking some boo. I love fucking, that's an old term I heard with eh, Willie Nelson smoking some boo, you know, smoking some boo with your bow. Oh, be nice if my bow actually smoked, eh, you and then the best one of all as mommy calls it, je are you still smoking de hash .
Speaker 1 (00:08:31) - And that's the mission came from my good friend Green Beard who hails from Ireland if you couldn't tell by the lovely Irish lilt. And he did list off several, uh, slang terms that he enjoys using the boo. I had not heard of that one before, but that one I might have to work into my everyday vernacular as well. I'm just going out for a boo. Next up we have this from Mackey of the uk
Speaker 5 (00:08:59) - Hi Marge. There's plenty of slang terms for cannabis fat enjoy. But there's one particular one that I find funny and it's because me and a few friends, we were driving up to Scotland to Ben Nevis, which is the tallest mountain in the uk and the way we just smoked loads of weed, we all had half an ounce each on us and we just smoked the whole way. It's an eight hour trip. And in the last 15 minutes of the journey we got pulled over by the police and uh, one of the police officers came up to the driver's window, asked him who he is, confirmed who he is, and then because of the smell of weed in the car, it obviously set off red flags to this police officer. He went back to the car and told his friend his his officer friend. So then this police officer came, come over to the window and he is this big six buck blonde guy, big beefy guy.
Speaker 5 (00:09:45) - He must have been six five. He was huge. And he leans into the car and he is got a South African accent and he's like, you got anything to say lads? Cause this car reeks of the GaN . So you know, the, the term the GaN from this car who was trying to be cool and trendy just before he arrested us for possession of this harmless herb. I, I'll find that term pretty funny. So let's hear some stories from everybody else. You know, what do you find funny If you got some funny experience we've cannabis, uh, what is the funny words that you use for cannabis or to try and disguise it? Thanks for the epic show, Marge. Love every episode. Keep up the great work. Goodbye
Speaker 1 (00:10:25) - The gge. Do you think any of you'll start using that one? I'm not sure I will because you know, came from the Popo, but it is kind of funny. The gge just doesn't sound complete, does it? But thank you both for those submissions. I thought they were a lot of fun. And of course if you wanna send in your own a link, a link to the SpeakPipe, the podcast hotline in the show notes so you can sit along your own and you don't need to feel like you have to send stories or a long list of of terms, just send what it is that you use in your everyday life when you're referring to cannabis. And if you're wondering, but Marge two actually say jazz cabbage. And I say it actually far more often than I care to admit. It might be a little bit ridiculous, but I just, there's something about the jazz cabbage and I guess that's maybe a nod to the sort of prohibition era jazz musicians that were using cannabis but they were onto something. And I find myself using jazz hands also far too often as well. So it kind of fits with my lifestyle, shall we say. But whether you're going out for the for a Boo or whether you're smoking some gge or whatever the case might be, let me know and I'll drop it into an episode so we can share with others.
Speaker 1 (00:11:37) - Now as a final fun little project, if you haven't heard yet of chat G P T, well you will now and I can link to that in the show notes as well. But perhaps if you've been living under a rock or you've just been busy at living your life and not really paying attention, which is quite easy to do as well. If you are not familiar with chat g p t, it is the new artificial intelligence chat bot that exploded onto the scene last late last fall. This has really been turning things upside down for a lot of people. It's gotten people talking about all the things that it can do. But one of the fun things that it can do is write stories. And for this particular, uh, I don't wanna say holiday cuz it's not really a holiday, not until four 20 is recognized as an official holiday, can we call it that?
Speaker 1 (00:12:24) - But there's, I know plenty of people who take four 20 off. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those this year, but I'm sure all the cannabis shops out there will be busy and it's going to be a busy day for many and there's all kinds of celebrations going on. I asked Chad g p t to write me a story. What did I, where's the prompt? I still have it here somewhere. What did I ask it? I said, write me a story about four 20 and the listeners invite me the show about edibles, and this is what it came up with. It was April 20th and the air was thick with the sweet smell of cannabis. A group of friends had gathered in the park to celebrate the holiday and listen to their favorite podcast, bite Me the show about edibles. The show's hosts Tom and Kate were known for their hilarious banter, formative discussions about all things cannabis infused.
Speaker 1 (00:13:18) - They had a loyal following of listeners who tuned in every week to learn more about edibles and share their own experiences. As the group settled onto their picnic blankets and passed around a bag of cannabis gummies, they fired up the latest episode of Bite Me. Tom and Kate were in top form cracking jokes and dishing out advice on how to make the perfect cannabis infused snack. The listeners were wrapped as they listened to the hosts talk about their latest edible creations. Tom had made a batch of THC infused caramel popcorn while Kate had whipped up some delicious chocolate truffles with a cannabis twist. Inspired by the show, the group decide to have their own edible Cookoff. They broke out their cannabis infused oils and started brainstorming ideas for their creations. One person suggested making cannabis infused guacamole while another wanted to try their hand at cannabis infused pizza.
Speaker 1 (00:14:11) - As the day went on, the group became increasingly creative in their edible creations. They made cannabis infused lemonade, brownies, and even a batch of cannabis infused mac and cheese. They sampled each other's creations and shared tips and tricks they had learned from listening to Bite Me. As the sun began to set and the celebration came to a close, the group gathered around to listen to the final segment of the podcast. Tom and Kate signed off with their usual catchphrase stay lifted, friends and the listeners cheered. The group left the park feeling happy and relaxed, grateful for the knowledge and entertainment they gained from listening to Bite Me. They had learned how to to make a delicious cannabis infused snacks and how to blast celebrating the holiday with their friends. From that day on, the listeners of Biting became known as the edibles enthusiasts. They continued to experiment with cannabis infused foods and share their creations with each other.
Speaker 1 (00:15:06) - In every April 20th they gathered in the park to celebrate the holiday and listen to their favorite podcast, grateful for the community they had found through their love of edibles. Like, wow, that really gets you in the feel. I mean, if you guys aren't cheering after you listen to an episode of Bite Me, I think I'm doing it wrong. But I have to say, who the hell are Tom and Kate? I'm not really sure. This chat, G P T seemed to get numerous different recipes that I've done, like I've done infused lemonade, brownies, mac and cheese pizza. I've done all that stuff on this show. So they had all that. But where this Tom and Kate came from, sometimes I wish I had a co-host. It might be fun to do some witty banter with them, but, and the stay lifted friends so close, I mean, I always do sign off as stay high, but I thought it was just actually very well done.
Speaker 1 (00:15:58) - I did also ask Chat g p t to write me a poem. Unfortunately, the poem is not worth sharing. It actually really kind of sucked, so I'm going to leave that one alone. But I really thought that story was endearing. I really am hoping that the edibles enthusiasts who are listening to this show me one day get together in a park and pull out all of their oils and tinctures and whatever. You may start making stuff in a park. I mean, how fun would that be? I might just have to do that someday and perhaps an in-person meetup might be possible. You never know. This is four 20. I hope you're going to have a fabulous day no matter what you end up doing. I'm so grateful for all of you who are listening. Of course, if you know somebody who might enjoy this episode or any of my other episodes, please share.
Speaker 1 (00:16:46) - That really does help to spread the word about this show. Again, you can talk to me by email or the podcast hotline, and I want to hear those weed words. And you can stay up to date with the Edibles enthusiast email newsletter, just like the Chachi PT story recommended or suggested in a low-key way. And that helps keep the episodes timeless because that's where I share the news events, questions for guests, giveaways, all that kind of thing. And consider using the products and services on the Marge Recommends page because those are the products and services that I use myself when I'm making edibles. I've been using many of them long before I started the show, and I'm confident in them, and there's lots of deals and discounts to be had, and that does help support the show as well. I'm your host, Marge, the premier certified gge in the world. That was for you, Chris, and until next time, my friends stay high.
