With a little over a week till ICBC Berlin, we’re now in FULL prep mode...

With a little over a week till ICBC Berlin, we’re now in FULL prep mode. Batteries charged, microphones muffed, thermidor< caps donned. Will we see you there? We certainly hope so. If you do spot Dave Barton loose in the wild, for goodness sake holla’ at the man(!).

While our filming will be a little different to our normal stance aka thermidor x Lift, we’re still interested to chat and find new views, outlooks, and opinions from across the full spectrum of the cannabis industry.

In Plain Sight

AskMyStreet is an app you might not be familiar with. To fill you in it’s an app designed to notify users when there are power cuts and it’s pretty popular in South Africa. It is however quickly transforming into a place for gig workers to find jobs, and for some – a place to sell weed. 

2 Minutes At 800W 

How do you decarb your bud? Sorry if that’s a personal question – we don’t want to be too forward. Our classic is the baking tray in a preheated oven (Great British Baked Off, anyone?). But how good a job can a microwave do? Leafie explores the topic, so dive in.

My Kinda' Party

Legal consumption lounges are lagging behind in the States, which is a shame. There are, however, people preparing for changes in some laws – in this case in Nevada – to allow businesses to have consumers on-site. “Not cannabis centric, cannabis inclusive” Alex Rizk, CEO of Elevations Hotels and Resorts, said of The Lexi hotel. That gets our vote.

One Rule For One
As an industry, we probably spend too much time dwelling on what our colleagues in alcohol are up to. But it does feel, quite often, that we’re not on a level playing field. Case in point, Twitch’s new branding policy prohibits cannabis… but explicitly allows alcohol. 

Superb Appointments

Volteface and The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society (MCCS) have been appointed as the new secretariat for the UK’s medical cannabis All-Party Parliamentary Group. Without trying to really explain what this means for those outside the UK, basically, we have way better representation where it counts.

The Tipping Point?

In what could well be a pretty monumental piece of precedent-setting, the NHS (National Health Service) in the UK has reimbursed a patient for their prescription of cannabis flower. Could this be the inflection point for medical cannabis in the UK? We certainly hope so(!).

thermidor< is a content-led, cannabis-focused, creative agency. We work with B2B, B2C, and D2C brands to develop messaging, brand, and tone of voice, as well as create written, audio, and visual content such as blogs, whitepapers, podcasts, and event films.
