Hidden Gems #2

We are back just in time for the heat wave to share the second edition of Hidden Gems that we’ve been gate-keeping for ourselves. The following are some products off our menu that we just can’t get enough of, and we think you’ll agree.

710 Day

Top of the morning to all of our connoisseurs out there, today is the day we celebrate all of the various forms of cannabis concentrates. For those who aren’t aware July 10th or 7/10 is known in the cannabis community as Dab Day or Oil Day.

What Is the Big Deal With Terpenes?

What are they and why have you been hearing your bud tenders brag about the terp percentage of their favourite buds? Well, that’s what we’re here to break down today. While cannabinoids such as THC and CBD have received a lot of attention for their effects, terpenes also play an important role in the cannabis plant’s unique properties and effects.

Hidden Gems #1

It’s not an uncommon occurrence at The Peace Pipe to have our customers say “You are the only dispensary that carries this!” and we are happy to boast about our large SKU count. It is a privilege to carry and consume the hidden gems off the legal market.

GRASS (1999)

Not many people know that National Canadian Film Day happens on April 19th each year, and in honor of the day (and being the Eve of 420) I thought it would be appropriate to give a shout out to the Canadian classic film, Grass.


We wanted to give a special highlight to some brands we have been loving at The Peace Pipe in a new collection of reviews we’d like to call “HIGHLY RATED”. The first brand we’d like to focus on is the affordable craft brand BC Black Craft Cannabis based out of Salmon Arm, BC...

USA Federal Court Orders RAW to Pivot Production & Axe Their Charitable Entity

RAW and it's other brands such as Elements, Juicy Jay and DLX are going to have slightly different packaging come spring time. This comes after a competitor Republic Brands took RAW to court claiming their packaging had false information on it.

Share A Cannabis Experience This Valentine's Day

Romance has always been the underlying tone but this year more than ever, it seems like it's just about spending money. Lately, I have put a lot of thought into what it means to show someone you care and what sets the mood for connecting with your partner.

Curious about edibles?

There's no question that legalization has changed the way we consume cannabis. It's brought us capsules and sublingual's, bath bombs and beverages and a wide variety of unique products like inhalers and coffee. The door has been opened to endless possibilities and this has many of us wanting to explore.

You Don't Have to Fear Infusion

I'm always amazed at the variety of responses when it comes THC. The range of perceptions goes from positively enthusiastic to downright terrified. I've been working in this industry for over 10 years now and it still amazes me how little we understand about cannabis consumption. Long before legalization, there were headshops.

How to Relax with Cannabis

I've always been a big fan of the tub and a glass of wine but lately I've traded in my alcohol and Epsom salts for cannabis. No, I'm not hotboxing my bathroom living out some mid-life crisis, (my bathroom reno was too expensive for that). I've actually started using the cannabis infused topicals and CBD beverages. I find they add a little tingle to my regular routine and push me into relaxation mode way faster.

Why Craft Cannabis?

Everyone is loving craft beer. It's unique, reasonably priced and a visit to a local brewery can make for a fun afternoon with friend and family. No wonder it's such a trend. Lately craft cannabis has been emerging, and many customers are asking what the difference is. Regulations have pretty much hindered the ability for companies to market products.

Have you heard about these unique edibles?

Edibles are the biggest opportunity for growth in the cannabis industry. The price, the flavor and the mg of THC all need room for improvement. The good news is, food is so unique and versatile that it gives the cannabis industry a huge playing fleid to explore.

What are Concentrates?

Is anyone else getting confused about Concentrates? This industry has evolved so much in the last 25 years that unless you're constantly educating yourself through endless hours of YouTube, Reddit discussions and Google searches, it's almost inevitable that you'll be out of date in no time. Before legalization, you could group the pot smokers into 2 groups. The Dried Flower goers, or the Concentrate junkies.

It's All in The Name

Ever wonder where your favorite cannabis strain went? If you were a fan of Green Crack, you may have noticed, it's nowhere to be found. The legal cannabis market changed the way we buy our cannabis and it shouldn't be surprising, it changed the way we market it too.

Back to School Basics

Everyone's been enjoying the summer weather lately and all I can think about is preparing for back to school. The pandemic definitely changed the usual buying trends of the seasons but this year the dreaded "It's the most wonderful time of the year" commercial has sparked a reminder that school is just around the corner and (spoiler alert), so is fall. Preparing to go to College or University is exciting, especially if you're living on your own.

What To Do with Dry Bud?

There’s nothing more disappointing than buying a new jar of cannabis, only to discover it’s dry AF. You'd think that buying something new from a store would mean it's fresh but Cannabis is a consumable product and it does go bad... eventually... kind of... well, it does lose its luster... but it depends on a variety of factors.

Canada Day

Canada Day is this week …and Big Larry is pretty excited. Canada Day has always been the kickoff of summer for me. To be honest, I’m not really celebrating our nation’s birthday as much as I’m just celebrating the fact that summer is here!


I’m used to people asking me about cannabis but over the last few weeks, I keep hearing about Kratom. I’ve heard of Kratom before, it’s not like I’m just hearing it for the first time; I’ve just been hearing it a lot more lately and still don’t know exactly what it is …and have had zero desire to know.

Until now. Lately I’ve been a little curious to know what it is …just a little.

Hip-Hop Influence

For a lot of people, hip hop and cannabis go hand in hand. Many of us, including Big Larry, were influenced into the culture by rappers such as Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Dre. Dre and Ice Cube. I idolized these guys so of course hearing them reference cannabis in their songs made me want to try it.

National Bubba Day

There’s not many days Big Larry has circled on the calendar. There’s maybe a few birthdays, usually Christmas, obviously April 20th, and of course, National Bubba Day; one of my favourite unofficial holidays!


This week is 4/20 …or as all the non-cannabis users know it, April 20. This is a day where cannabis users come together and unify under a cloud of smoke. It’s a term known around the world in all cannabis circles and some people even celebrate it daily, whenever the clock strike 4:20. But what are we celebrating?

Growing for Beginners

With outdoor growing season fast approaching, people are starting to ask me about seeds and how they can get their own garden started. I’m not a pro grower, nor am I going to pretend to be, but I do know the bare basics. 

Live Resin vs Distillate

With vape carts continuing to rise in popularity, a lot more people have started to ask me, what’s the difference between a distillate vape cartridge and a live resin vape cartridge? Is there a difference? …there certainly is!

Infused Beverages

Infused beverages have been at The Peace Pipe for a while now but until recently, I’ve been avoiding them like the plague. Big Larry’s tolerance is not little and with the drinks being capped at 10mg of THC per beverage, I never really saw a point in buying one. Yes, I could have just bought one to sip and enjoy but I assumed they wouldn’t taste that good and thought it would just be a waste of money …I was wrong. So, so, wrong.

Holiday Themed Products

We have now entered December, or as I like to call it, Limited Edition month! With Christmas right around the corner, a lot of companies use this time to release some limited-edition products to the masses. Most of the time they just re-release an old product, with a catchy new holiday name, but this year there’s actually some legit stuff hitting the shelves.

vape cart season

Summer is long behind us and the cold weather is starting to creep up fast, which means Big Larry won’t be going outside for his nightly post work sesh for much longer. I enjoy a good joint as much as the next person but I don’t enjoy it that much; I think I’d much rather be warm than high …but why not be both!

Eliminating Odors

With the colder weather arriving, I know a lot of you are bringing your sesh inside these days …and there’s nothing wrong with that. Chances are you may become immune to the smell though, which is never good when people come over.


When I first heard the word dab, it made me think of the dabbing craze the cool kids went through a few years back, where they would swing their one arm up over their face and lean into it; it took me a minute to associate that word with anything else. Now, when I hear dabbing, I immediately think of torches and cannabis...

Glass Cleaner

Have you ever been sitting around the house, maybe watching tv or reading a book, when you get a whiff of something unpleasant? It’s so bad and unfamiliar that you actually get up from your seat and start sniffing around like a hound dog, walking around to every corner, trying to sniff out where that terrible smell is coming.


It’s no surprise that I’ve been around a lot of cannabis in my day; from the worst looking buds to award winning colas, I’ve pretty much seen it all. I’ve even watched friends grow weed from a packaged seed, purchased at the Peace Pipe, into tasty buds that I’ve smoked and enjoyed. Sounds like I’ve seen everything there is to see though, right? …well, not quite. 

Salted Caramel Pretzel Bites

Big Larry Labour Day is what they’re calling me now, after that final long weekend of the summer. What an awesome three days it was …feels like it was an entire week! With it being the last long weekend of the summer, and essentially the last party weekend for a lot of my friends (I gotta stop hanging out with teachers), I wanted to try something new and see where the buzz took me.

Magical Butter Machine

It’s September, so you know what that means! ...I don’t know, I’ve got nothing. I find September to be a weird month. It’s nice outside and I’m still in summer mode but everyone else seems to be getting ready for back to school. Whether they’re teachers, parents or students, everyone I know gets into this intense school mode when September starts, which always leaves me looking for stuff to do. 

Quebec Cannabis

Bonjour mes amis! I have just returned from La Belle Province and man do I have some wild stories to tell you …but not really. I did wander into an SDQC while I was there though. The SDQC is like the LCBO, except for cannabis. 

Vape Carts

Ever been at the gym or the grocery store – or anywhere in public like that – and smelled weed coming from the person next to you? Chances are they don’t even know that they are giving off that very strong Eau de Cannabis aroma. It happens to me all the time, where I smell weed on someone because they just burnt a joint in the car, or before leaving the house, and they are nose blind to how bad they actually reek (I know, some people just don’t care…

The Carmel Preroll

We’re almost at the halfway point of the summer which means I’ve tried almost half of the pre-rolls being sold at the Peace Pipe! I’m kidding; there’s over 150 different pre-roll options available in-store so I still have a way to go …but I’ll get there.

Cobourg's New Location

Cobourg, cannabis… They both start with the letter C so it’s only fitting that they be put together.

With locations already in Oshawa, Newmarket and Peterborough, The Peace Pipe in Cobourg opened its doors to the public in early July, making it the company’s fourth Ontario location.

Methods Of Smoking Concentrate

Try out something new and take your smoking game to the next level. Incorporating concentrates into your smoking routine not only increases the potency of your smoke, it offers a whole new smoking experience!

Cannabis Beverages

There’s lots of pre-rolls to to talk, and I’ll get to those another time, but today I want to talk about a product that is really starting to take off, especially now that the nice weather is here. It might even leap over pre-rolls soon as the top seller of the summer. That product is ice cold, cannabis infused, beverages

Basic Grow Tips & Our Seed Collection

Germinating your seeds is a necessary component to the growing process. Starting off by placing your seed in a cup of water for 24 hours will help moisten the shell on the seed so that a root can begin growing. 

Cannabis Infused Self Care

Being stuck in the middle of a Pandemic can be a whole lot of stress! What better way is there to relax than with a nice hot bath? Take it up a notch by adding in one of Eve & Co’s Dreamer, Lover or Boss Bath Bombs. Or, if bath salts sound more interesting, give 48 North’s Ylang Ylang Bath Salts a try.
