Having a good Monday so far? Well it’s about to get a heap better

Having a good Monday so far? Well it’s about to get a heap better – it’s time for your weekly infusion of indica insight; ably flanked by a sativa story or two!  And this week we’ve found a wide variety of titbits for you(!).

Oh, by the way, in case you didn’t know (!) we have a podcast where we talk to people from across the cannabis sphere and find out about all the cool things they’re up to. Our most recent episode was with chef Jordan Wagman – check it out.

"The legalization of marijuana is not a dangerous experiment – the prohibition is the experiment, and it has failed dramatically, with millions of victims all around the world."

Sebastian Marincolo

Wild Juice Chase

Look, we don’t want to keep covering the same thing, but this story continues to surprise us. Business Cann has done a fantastic job diving deeper into the murky waters of financial scams and possibly the juiciest lie ever told.

A Fine Wine?

Ever had a THC wine? No? Us neither. But with brands like Rebel Coast, House of Saka, and Viv & Oak popping up there’s more and more opportunities to try the stuff. To be honest, if there’s any excuse to sample great produce, we’re in.

Sacred Tribe

Belief can be channeled into beautiful things. Whether or not higher powers are your bag, being able to see the benefit of something (like mushrooms) and help people access it is amazing. That’s precisely what the relatively rock and roll Rabbi Gorelick is doing in Colorado – props to Leafie for this brilliant piece.

What A Joke

This week Brittney Griner was sentenced to 9 years in prison for less than a gram of cannabis. It just leaves us speechless that this situation can even begin to unfold. The truth is she is being punished in line with political dick swinging rather than a crime with any victim. Madness.

Regulation For The Nation(s)

The cannabis industry is booming, and it was doing pretty well 100 years ago, at least in terms of product adoption. What happened in the intervening century? Go check out this first in a three-part series from Clark Hill on The History of Cannabis Regulation.

Cool Opportunity

Want you to throw yourself into the thick of a fascinating industry? Got a green thumb? Well, this course in the Netherlands is a comprehensive two-week affair covering grow room setup, plant physiology, and how to market a grow op. This isn’t sponsored, it’s just brilliant that these courses are available.
