Well, that’s it, a wrap on MJBizCon 2022. We’re officially out of Vegas, and in the process of digesting everything we’ve seen, heard, and just generally experienced. It was nothing short of excellent – so much so that we’re already planning our return next year.

And given we’re a day later than normal (because, travel) let’s just dive right into a quickfire snapshot of the past week in cannabis.

“Ganja comes out of the ground, so it can't be bad.”

Bob Marley

What’s The Situation?

We get giddy about actual progress, and this week, we can genuinely say we’re pleasantly surprised to find out about a very cool development in Northern Ireland. Ballyclare is now officially home to the UK’s first cannabis vape lounge, and it’s dedicated to medical patients. Flippin’ excellent stuff.

Happy Holidays

With the festive season fast approaching, here’s some great news with a fully-fledged cannabis twist on the much-loved Thanksgiving dinner. Weed and food is already a cracking combo, but add in the excess of a celebratory occasion and you’re locked in for a grand ol’ time.

Packin’ Heat

The complexities of cannabis legislation are nothing if not deeply fascinating – at least for industry nerds like us. In this case, one of the barriers to entry for many people who want to enjoy the plant in parts of the US is that they can’t bear arms if they take a walk on the green side.

Attention Seeking In Cannabis

Keeping on top of all things brand, marketing, and messaging is our everyday. So, when Rolling Stone puts together an article on the state of advertising in cannabis, it gets our attention. The main takeaway is that just because there are challenges, it doesn’t mean you can’t find success.

Thai This On For Size

Leaps and bounds are the best way to measure cannabis legalization in Thailand – and the impact is now being felt more widely in South East Asia. But now they’re steadily bringing in more regulations to better control and develop the market. Basically, open it all up, then funnel it down. Will it work? Only time will tell.

What Can’t They Do?!

Cookies seem dead set on continuing their position as the biggest brand in bud. Top dog Berner spoke this past week at MJBizCon, revealing that Cookies would begin selling seeds to help promote and support home growing. Ace(!).

Did somebody say ‘Cookies’?
