Hippie Sabotage is an electronic dance music duo from Sacramento, California, made up of brothers Kevin and Jeff Saurer. Like most hippies, Kevin and Jeff love weed. It’s influenced their progress as people, it is influenced their music, and as they evolve, it now influences their merch.
Hippie Sabotage began smoking weed in summer time camp as youngsters, and the connection by no means stopped. Camp Counselors had been all the way down to blow and the hippies joined a couple of periods. Around 16, they began smoking blunts after they began making music. It’s been a holy matrimony ever since, a love that interprets into their latest product: the Devil Eyes OG pre-rolls. “It sounds corny, but we do have a passion for marijuana. As it becomes legal and more accessible — especially in California — we just wanted to participate in that.”
Currently, the brothers are gearing up for a social distance-appropriate tour throughout the nation. “We’re doing a drive-in movie theater tour in mid-August. It’s going to be a very special ambient banger. Full of cool instrumental experiences at a drive-in, mostly projected up on a screen. Perfect time to bring out Devil Eyes OG.”
In our speak about their experiences with cannabis and their upcoming tour, we additionally spoke about a few of the group’s favourite smokeables. Here are a couple of cannabis products Hippie Sabotage can’t live without.
Devil Eyes OG Pre-rolls
Quite clearly, Hippie Sabotage loves smoking their very own product, and so they love these traditional Kush flavors. When requested how Devil Eyes OG tastes, Kevin says, “It tastes like an OG. I’m not a big fan of real strong berry or fruity flavors.”
Named after their 2018 Devil Eyes EP, the duo advised me that the primary mission behind the joints is to maintain strengthening the connection between the music and the followers. “We really just wanted to do a joint for our fans that we like smoking ourselves, that they could bring to the concerts. So they could know that they’ve had a similar smoking experience to us.”
In addition to that traditional OG taste, once I requested about their favourite cannabis strains, Hippie Sabotage advised me, “we love sativas, because we’re always making beats.” Of these sativas, they named two favorites, the primary was Jack Herer.
Named after the legendary cannabis activist, Jack Herer, this pressure is a well known huge daddy sativa pressure that many affiliate with a brilliant energetic and buzzy excessive. It’s old skool and was bred by crossing Haze, Northern Lights, and Skunk genetics. For some, the push of cerebral vitality that comes with Jack Herer generally is a little onerous to handle; for the hippies, it is a bridge to creativity that works wonders for his or her music.
Super Lemon Haze
The second sativa that Hippie Sabotage loves is Super Lemon Haze. Super Lemon Haze is a cross of Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk. As the identify suggests, this sativa-dominant hybrid pushes out these traditional skunky, citrus and piney haze flavors. The excessive, very like Jack Herer talked about above, tends to be energetic and blissful, match for individuals who are in search of a robust cerebral excessive.
Weed purists, the hippies could particularly love Jack Herer and Super Lemon Haze, however honestly, “we just love weed man.”
Otto Automated Cone Roller by Banana Bros
The Otto Automated Cone Roller from Banana Bros is an incredible product, straight up. I first noticed it again in August 2018 once I attended Matt Barnes’ Athletes vs. Cancer occasion at Snoop Dogg’s compound. Set up type of like a commerce present/farmer’s market, the lot was full of all types of products, and one clearly stood out amongst the remaining: the Otto. I particularly keep in mind watching Snoop’s son Cordell take part in its demonstration then yell, “Yoooooo, this the future right here, bruh!” The hippies caught one as a present and so they inform me they’ve made big use of it.
Basically, the Otto has two parts: a grinder and a cone stuffer. The grinder is an automated grinder that can be used as a standalone. You break up it open like an egg, stuff your weed in, after which press a single button and watch your flower fall in your espresso desk.
The second part is a cone tube for stuffing a joint. You put a cone within the tube, join the tube to the grinder, press the button, and the weed falls instantly into the cone on some Wiz Khalifa Day Today shit. The days of spraining your wrist whereas twisting an impossibly soiled grinder that you simply refuse to wash are over.
Axiom Solventless Hash
When it involves the Hippie Sabotage smoking expertise, the brothers are purists in that they like flower over anything. Of different consumption strategies, they mentioned, “We like pretty much strictly flower; we [may] throw some hash in there. I’m not the biggest fan of blow torches or large fire devices; I prefer to keep it old school by smoking blunts, smoking joints, having a coffee with it.”
When they do select to toss some hash in a joint, versus dabbing it, the hash they favor comes from a Los Angeles-based firm referred to as Axiom. However, their relationship with hash began in Spain. “We first got into hash when we were in Barcelona. They had a lot of different hash blends. So when we got back to the states, we found this hash company called Axiom Hash. It’s solventless, so it’s supposed to be as pure as possible.”
In so many phrases, solventless hash is a type of cannabis hash oil that makes use of no solvents to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes you eat. They embrace dry sift, ice water or bubble hash, and rosin.
Conversely, solventless-based hash do use solvents. Common types of solvent-based hash oils are butane hash oil (BHO) and propane hash oil (PHO). Most extract followers choose solvent-less as a result of they’re cleaner and extra pure.
Axiom’s web presence is fairly scarce, however a peak at their Instagram account exhibits that they produce a slew of concentrates together with: solventless hash, temple balls, and a seemingly pre-roll various that may be a tube filled with their hash and pre-ground flower.
