WOOT! WOOT! SPRING AHOY (kinda)!!

It certainly feels like change is in the air as we venture into the green and pleasant time of year – with all of its chocolate eggs, lamb dinners, and bunny ears. And with conference season kicking off in April with The Cannabis Summit and InternationalCBCBerlin, no doubt all eyes will be on Germany and its neighbours as rec legalisation takes root in Europe!

By the way, we’ve updated our YouTube channel with a host of Shorts taken from our travels over the past 18 months. You might recognise a few familiar faces…

Oh and for those that Habla Espanol check out Dave’s interview with the fine folks at Agropharm Projects.

Following Suit

Germany’s stance on cannabis is certainly getting some mainstream media attention. But how is it faring elsewhere? How could the UK stand to benefit if we went down a similar path here? This insightful piece from The Guardian speculates on the topic.

Naughty, naughty??

Stripe Red Inks Cannabis Writers

Ooh err. So we all know cannabis x banking is a thorny area to navigate. But when a renowned payment provider like Stripe put the kibosh on those writing about the plant – while allowing those selling weed paraphernalia full access – questions start being asked.

Never fear! Limonene is near!!

Limonene Fixes ‘The Fear’

Smells like sativa?

Stigma Causes Stink In SA

One of South Africa’s best known rappers was refused service in a Johannesburg restaurant after complaints he ‘smelled of weed’. Emtee, along with buddies Uncle Vinny and Yungseruno were turned away from a branch of Mike’s Kitchen when the seating server kicked up a stink over the scent of cannabis and the trio’s ‘tattoos’.

Beach bods and bongs: a winning combo?

Weed + Workouts?

Getting super stoned and bench pressing 100kg isn’t advisable. But more and more people are incorporating cannabis into their workout routines –  and feeling the benefit as a result.

Going Hell for Hemp?

Harley’s New Hemp EV Bike Hits The Road

Motors are revving at iconic motorcycle brand, Harley-Davidson, as the all-new S2 Mulholland EV bike takes to the open road. But the most unique thing about this motorbike? Many of its panels are made from hemp biocomposites – among other sustainable materials.
