One week away people(!). That's one week from the biggest cannabis calendar event (ummm… MJBizCon – in case you weren’t aware) and also just 7 days from the thermidor< crew landing stateside as wide eyed tourists, not just of the US but of a legal market! We won't know where to look(!).
We touched on the creative impact of cannabis last week, but despite debate over its ability to take you to a creative place, musicians and artists have used it forever and a day – surely there's some kind of evidence in that?!
“As an artist, there's a sweet jump-starting quality for me. So if ever I need some clarity, I smoke a joint.”
And, as some predicted, the European dominoes begin to fall, with the first key follower being the Czech Republic, who now plan to legalise cannabis in line with Germany. It's a great decision, and frankly it just gets us flippin' excited for the next few years(!).
The majority of us can't shake the spiraling cost of living, but where this really has an impact is on medicine. In the UK medical cannabis is basically patient funded and so as the cost of everything skyrockets, patients have to choose whether or not they can afford to treat their conditions.
Whether you've sourced yourself, know a friend who has, or have read great articles like this one from Volteface, drugs are everywhere on social media. Alongside the potential danger that it presents to kids, it also leaves adults at the hands of scammers – both with bad product or just outright fakery.
Nothing quite like being number one. While Sean Combs, aka P Diddy, has topped charts the world over, he now finds himself as the creator of the largest, vertically integrated, minority-owned cannabis MSO on the planet. Not bad, not bad at all.
Unfortunately, competition has bred such a need to differentiate that some cannabis brands choose to take the low road. In this case, some bud producers are shopping around to find testing labs that give them the big digit THC potency that they think the market needs. Big shame that.
The pressures of running an above board, legal cannabis enterprise are felt most keenly in the pocket. Where other sectors capitalise on keen funding or at least credit, cannabis businesses are lucky if they can keep a bank account open. Seriously, it's a struggle for us, and we don't even touch the plant(!).
