With August about to head into the rearview, we’re looking firmly ahead. CB Expo...

With Pumpkin Spice Latte season seemingly further out of reach than years gone by (thanks climate change!), we’re entering the last part of 2023 with a sense of general bewilderment. Hey – we should be used to it now given how volatile the cannabis industry is!

That said, there’s some solid stuff coming up as Fall sets in – including CB Expo which kicks off in Dortmund later this week!  Want a flavour of what to expect? Check out our podcast interview with CB Expo’s Ben Arn!

The Sound of Sativa

Ad bans are more than just a pet peeve for cannabis marketers. Things are changing though – and Spotify is the latest platform to loosen its stance. Listeners in Illinois will soon be hearing ads for the Sunnyside dispensary chain. Sounds like success to us.

Blacking Out: Blame It On The Bud?

Blacking out might be a familiar consequence of hitting the herb too hard (it happens…), but could powering illegal grows be KO-ing electricity supplies in the Spanish city of Granada?

Looking At The (Re)schedule

The big news that the US is rescheduling cannabis is definitely a step in the right direction. But what does it *actually* mean? This piece delves a bit deeper.   

Eastern Promise in North Carolina

Rec legalisation in NC is taking longer than we’d like, but one band of local landowners – the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians – has voted to make it so on their reservation in the western part of the state. If only the rest of NC could follow suit. 

New Amsterdam?

As Amsterdam begins its blanket ban on cannabis consumption in public, tourist-dominated parts of the city, it stands to lose its crown as a haven for herb. Still, plenty of other places are ready to step up. But where?

Wooooo-ing Sponsorship

Hot on the heels of his foray into the cannabis sector last year, retired pro wrestler and all-round lunatic, ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair has secured a sponsorship deal with NBA team, the Cleveland Cavaliers for his functional mushroom-based energy drink: Wooooo! Energy.
