Cannalope Haze Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Cannalope Haze Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Cannalope Haze marijuana strain actually smells like melon, which is the first thing I noticed about it. The Cannalope Haze marijuana strain also tastes a bit like melon on the inhale, which is nothing short of fantastic.

'Operation Grow4Vets' Gives Free Marijuana To Veterans

One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone uses  the ‘I am compassionate’ stance, knowing that the only reason they are in the medical marijuana industry is to line their own pockets. I see it all to often here in Oregon and in other states I’ve visited. If these people were truly in it to help patients, they wouldn’t be selling mediocre medical marijuana at high prices like they do. Something fantastic, and rare, happened over the weekend. A group in Denver gave away free marijuana to veterans to help [...]

Victorian Parents Overwhelmingly Support CBD For Sick Children

A doctor in Australia was treating a dozen children with CBD, which does not cause euphoric effects and is not smoked. The Australian doctor has received a lot of media scrutiny, however, parents in the area are very [...]

Nevada Could Eventually Have The Largest Medical Cannabis Industry In America

Nevada is going to launch it’s medical cannabis industry in just a few months. Nevada has had a medical cannabis program for a long time, but dispensaries weren’t approved until recently. One major detail of the recently passed legislation that legalized medical cannabis dispensaries is that Nevada will allow out of state patients to purchase medical cannabis at licensed dispensaries. Nevada of course is a top tourist destination, so this could turn into a very, very lucrative industry. Per Marijuana Business Daily: It’s called “reciprocity,” and only a few other [...]

It appears that scenario is occurring right now, which is a very exciting thing for the industry as a whole. Per Bloomberg: Cubic Designs Inc., a unit of Berkshire’s MiTek business that makes platforms for maximizing usable floor space in warehouses, sent about 1,000 fliers to weed dispensaries in recent weeks, [...]

It appears that some licenses in Washington could be in jeopardy, further delaying outlets from opening. Per King 5: Washington state is warning dozens of people who applied to run legal marijuana shops that their chance of getting a license is [...]

Banking Still An Issue For Growing Colorado Cannabis Industry

Banking has always been an issue for the cannabis industry, well before Colorado and Washington legalized recreational cannabis in 2012. Earlier this year there appeared to be a banking solution on the horizon in Colorado. Efforts seemed promising that Colorado would be creating a first of it’s kind banking system specially for the cannabis industry. However, those efforts still haven’t got off the ground in Colorado. There have been a lot of conversations, meetings, and ideas thrown around, but a banking solution for the cannabis industry in Colorado has remained [...]

Company Site Selectors Should Not Let Cannabis Fears Influence Decisions

Big companies use national site selectors when determining where to locate offices, factories, etc. These companies don’t simply select a location at random. They perform a significant amount of due diligence and have an expert lead the project. There was recently a meeting in Denver for these types of professionals – the 2014 Metro Denver Site Selection Conference. Naturally, the topic of cannabis came up quite a bit during the event. A very popular question was whether or not Colorado’s growing cannabis industry helps or hurts the chances of companies [...]
