The American rock band Slightly Stoopid is thinking outside the box -- or inside the hotbox -- when it comes to pressing records. They've pressed a record made entirely out of hash. And it actually works -- for smoking and for listening to the band's psychedelic grooves.
The idea was the brainchild of Jon Phillips of Silverback Music, which also manages Slightly Stoopid. “It’s all about putting two old-school vintage mediums together,” he told Billboard. “Vinyl is an old-school medium, and that’s how we feel about hashish, too.”
In fact, they're so passionate about cannabis that they spent $7,000 to press one record. It took $6,000 worth of bubble hash to construct the record and $1,000 to manufacture it. And for all that money, the final product doesn't hold up well. “It’s not something you’re going to plop on your turntable over and over again,” Phillips added. “For now, this is an art piece.”
So you won't find copies of it in stores. But if you want to try Slightly Stoopid's bubble hash, you should be able to soon. Phillips plans to sell it through California dispensaries in the near future.
