We’ve a veritable smorgasbord delivered directly to your inbox on this fine October day. It’s jam-packed with free weed, a look at legal practice, and even something you can build a home with. Sound good? Well c’mon then, start scrolling(!).

Cannabis icons don’t get much bigger than this man, and at the ripe old age of 89, he’s not only still fighting the good fight, he’s still releasing albums(!), which seems almost absurd. Maybe it’s all the grass that’s kept him so productive?

“The biggest killer on the planet is stress, and I still think the best medicine is and always has been cannabis”

Willie Nelson

Free Weed

Nice when an industry does some good, and we seem to see that happen rather a lot in cannabis. Here in the UK, three private firms have agreed to donate medical cannabis to kids going through the drawn out process of getting a prescription via the NHS. Bravo(!).

Return of Le Med

A slight bastardisation of the frankly epic, mid 90s jam to lead us in (!), but with France in the process of evaluating its medical cannabis supply chain, this great piece covers the history of bud in the République.

Royaaal With Weed
If Britain’s newly crowned King Charles were to light a blunt at his coronation, the impact would be felt far and wide. Our very own Jamie Bonthron posits that if we are to make weed a thing, then we need to start conversations everywhere.


Keys To The Kingdom

Never underestimate the power of the person standing in front of a customer. That should be one of the most important considerations for dispensaries. The budtender is the master of many things, including the destiny of every brand on the shelf, as this piece from Canndid shows.

(Hemp)Bricks-and-Mortar

U.S. building codes are known to be some of the most frustrating of their kind, but there’s been a most excellent development. Now, in 49 out of 50 states (98% is pretty damn good), Hempcrete has been approved for use in residential buildings.

Kush With The Law

Whenever cannabis finds its way into establishment, there’s clearly progress being made. Rutgers University has added a Cannabis Law Business Certificate for next year. That means there’s demand for that knowledge in the industry, and that means things are very much developing.
