Madison Margolin The author and editor, known for her extensive coverage of botanical medicine and its religious relevance, would half-jokingly say her beat is “Jews and drugs.”
Madison also co-founded a print and online publication double blindsFocusing on psychedelics and their global evolution, Rolling Stone, VICE, Playboy, high timesmore.
Madison is one of the best cannabis reporters and her nuanced approach to storytelling Crème de la infused cream.
for example, This 2017 feature She wrote for Mary Jane while I was editing the pub. can protect IP in plants. Madison has a knack for combining idiosyncrasy and gravitas in a way that makes editors drool and other writers jealous.
Madison is a dear friend and we have worked together on various articles in the past, often swapping editor and writer roles. I would like to briefly mention one of her previous birthday parties.with all her friends, including various old-school cannabis activists “Magic Jew” Come hang out at the Kibitz Room at Canter’s Deli in LA for a quick chat. Before you know it, Ease’s delivery showed up with an overabundance of weed so everyone could smoke between knife bites. More “Jews and drugs” than that? If it were an annual event…
In a cash-only interview, Madison explains the benefits of CBG (an often overlooked cannabinoid), shows us some of the super cool POC-owned craft farms, and has fun while being at her best. We will detail what the party needs to do. Choice wreck from real head!
What is your current favorite strain? How do you take it?
Madison Margolin: High in CBD, ideally hybrid and not sativa dominant. However, I like Blue Dream. I like tobacco-based spliffs (sometimes when the cigarette is menthol).
Humboldt producers always impress me. Huckleberry Hill Farms, Moonmaid Farms, Bryceland Forest Farmsetc. Unless it’s a super-heavy sativa, I’m not a “stoner” enough to stick with what I smoke. I can change that narrative, but at worst it makes me uneasy, at best it’s too alarming. It doesn’t really matter. I’m not a consumer nerd, I’m a casual smoker.
With that said, I prefer to support Emerald Triangle’s little outdoor growers, moms and pops. I love the outdoor farming lifestyle and what it entails. I especially like the sunny, eco-friendly, sustainable and regenerative aspects. I like people who care about all plants energetically, holistically, and so on. It is preferred over the impersonal, mass-produced indoor weeds that can be found elsewhere.
Do you currently have a favorite weed product?
With this CBG tincture artemisia negra, a local queer POC owned craft company based in the Hudson Valley. The brand is owned by this really cool herbalist. she is wonderful I came across this brand at Farmers Her Market in Kingston. They source their hemp from Deer Creek Herbs, a small revitalization business in the Hudson Valley/Catskills area.
For me, I found CBG to be more focused and alert than other cannabinoids. I took it before starting work for the day and it helped! CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and can keep you relaxed, while CBG makes it sharper. It’s obviously very subtle, but I love the way it makes me feel.
What activities do you like to do after smoking cigarettes?
To be honest, I don’t smoke much cannabis these days. If so, it’s definitely night and I usually take a few sips from the spliff. When I go out, I like to dance.
Unless I’m with someone I’m very close to, I can be socially awkward if I’m too stoned. It may be a little trance-like. I like to get into the groove, stay on the dance floor, and get high at parties that don’t require much socializing. I mean, I don’t like getting high at house parties where everyone is social and talking non-stop. I want an atmosphere where I can get lost without focusing on my small talk skills.
Can you recommend what to watch while stoning?
It is recommended to watch full-length movies. So a movie that lasts to its highest length, ideally something funny that: Annie Hall or something I tend to get a little stuck in my head when I’m high, so keeping my head light and humorous helps and allows me to focus on things other than my own thoughts.
What’s your favorite song to listen to after smoking cigarettes?
of american beauty Grateful Dead album. i love it America isn’t bad, but at the same time it’s a reminder that immigration can be fun. Plus, the lyrics feel soulful to me.
What books should I read when I’m high?
The last time I stumbled while baking was in Aryeh Kaplan’s book when I touched on the chapter on “Unity”. Jewish Meditation: A Practical GuideThis book describes the psychedelic experience through meditation.
Who’s in your dream blunt rotation?
I feel so lucky to get high with people like Mark MacLeod and John Entwistle who are already in my dull rotation of dreams. Also my father and his friend Gene Schoenfeld. 90’s old school he hippie and activist. Thank you to all the legends who smoked with us!
Also, Ilana Glazer is on my smoked sesh bucket list. Kazy David too. She is a smoker and I think she is less stressed with her than her father. Contact me for Smoked Sesh, Ilana and Cathy!
