“If one seeks relief from unbearable pressure, one is to eat hashish.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
That’s from one of the big dogs of modern-day psychology and a very interesting individual. If you ever get the chance to read some of his work or look at his impact on the world, then take it. Particularly refreshing was his seemingly liberal approach to hash(!)
As part of the NFT goldrush, cannabis companies are trying to find ways to use non-fungible tokens to build their brand, sell their products, and reach new customers.

Reggae-punk legends sublime are currently developing a selection of cannabis products focused on healing. After the tragic loss of Bradley Nowell in 1996 their aim is to release cannabis products that help people - particularly those dealing with opioid addictions.
In a previous edition of the lobsterpot, we mentioned a great piece of legislation. We will always dedicate space here for smart decisions in the political world of cannabis.

It’s a fantastic analysis of the current European cannabis markets from Benjamin-Alexandre Jeanroy who works as a cannabis consultant. It’s a great read and has some absolutely golden nuggets sprinkled throughout - seriously spend the time to take it all in.
