Ben Sinclair is the co-creator of the HBO phenomenon, High Maintenance. His starring role as "The Guy," a weed deliveryman, has positioned him as a modern day stoner icon.
What's your favorite low-tech product of the moment? Hepburn ice-hash pre-rolls – I don't usually opt for pre-rolls, but these little guys come in a cute little tin and they really pack quite the punch. I think I first saw them at Buds & Roses in [Los Angeles,] and then again at MedMen. At the end of the day, just a few hits off of one of these little dudes will do you fine.
And any high-tech products? Those Dosist Pens are really fun to hold and look like Apple products. These guys understand capitalism, narrowing in on the most reliable dose possible, one that won't lay you out on the couch but still gets you stoned. I see people all over with them now. Very mellow, functional highs – and the the smaller, less mellow ones get me blazed in ways that many pens fall short.
What strains have you been into lately? I aim to smoke locally, New-York grown flowers – most lately it was Sour Chem. I always trying to get local, Veganic, sun-grown weed. Try to find local growers while they still exist. But also, I'm not that picky and pretty much toke what's handed to me. In my home now there's Chem 91, Gorilla Glue #4, and Cookies.
Are there any new products you want to try out? I don't know what's coming, but I'm excited for the initial excitement of legalization to wear off, so that people might stop chugging weed like they're at frat parties and to start enjoying it more deliberately and consciously.
Any new trends in weed on the horizon? "People chugging weed like they're at a frat party."
