Cookies Crush
(Branding, California, Canada, Cannabis, Clothing, Education, Florida, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Jamaica, Law, Magazines, Maryland, Media, Michigan, Production, Regulations, Social Media, Strains, United States, Dispensaries) Nothing cannabis-related in the last 10 years found its way into our hearts, blunts and closets quite like Cookies. Even in the earliest days of transition from the medical space to the adult-use marketplace, Cookies was the most well-branded company in the cannabis industry. Today, in a world where PR people are desperate to create the kind of movement Berner’s business savvy and Jigga’s genetics have ignited, nothing else really comes close in the connoisseur space. Every step in the process of Cookies’ rise had its own wild amount of hype. In the late 2000s, the Girl Scout Cookies strain , called Cookies for short, became the most sought-after new strain in the world. Then, as the second decade of the century kicked off, Cookies became the must-have cannabis clothing brand , moving from social media to storefronts. Today, Cookies as a legal marijuana company is using its branding savvy to take the multi-pronged business even further into the future. From its humble beginning as a...

Is Avoiding Pot Stocks The Answer?
(Acquisition, Branding, Canada, Cannabis, Investing, Investments, Investors, Marketing, Products, Stocks) We’ve all seen the toll that the coronavirus has played on the cannabis industr y. In the past month, we have seen the top cannabis stocks shed more than 50% in value. But, volatility is nothing new to pot stocks . Rather, it has been around as long as the industry has. During the trading day on March 24th, we saw a large jump in prices for the first time in a while. This is characterized by Trump’s new actions on how the country will deal with the coronavirus. But, it does seem that these gains may be short-lived. For long term investors, avoidance may just be the best strategy to investing in marijuana stocks right now. It is a difficult time to use any projections as the world is facing a tumultuous and unseen enemy. But, many are becoming increasingly excited about the future potential of the cannabis industry and others. There are two types of investors when it comes to investing in cannabis stocks. There are long term investors who believe in the future of the marijuana industry...

On the High End
(Branding, California, Cannabis, CBD, Education, Genetics, Grower, Growers, Growing, Investment, New York, Organic, Products, Regulations, Science, Spain, Strains, Testing, United States, Vaporizers, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation, Intellectual Property) In the early 2000s, that golden age of Proposition 215 cannabis in California, Mario “Mr. Sherbinski” Guzman was a regular supplier for San Francisco’s legendary Vapor Room. Back then, nobody had heard the name Sherbinski and the notion of a cannabis brand was still an abstraction. Today, nearly two decades later, his company Sherbinskis is on the short list of still-relevant adult-use brands with uninterrupted roots in California’s self-regulated 215 market. But before Sherbinski’s cannabis was getting name-dropped in rap hits and sold through fancy department stores, Afgoo cold water hash washed from Sherbinski bud by the man himself was a menu staple at the Vapor Room , and a crucial part of my daily routine. For years, the best part of waking up was smoking a bowl of chocolate-black bubble hash with a cup of tar-black coffee on a rickety fire escape overlooking the intersection of Oak and Fillmore streets. I’m thinking about this memory as I catch myself staring dreamily out the...

Canadians Complain That Legal Weed Still Isn’t as Good as Black Market Bud
(ACB, Branding, Canada, Cannabis, CGC, Distribution, Greenhouses, Products, Regulations) Canadian cannabis firms are seeing a significant downturn in stock market value, but if you were looking to simply blame market forces for the industry’s cannabis business woes, you might be missing the forest for the trees. According to a new report from The Guardian , cannabis consumers in the Great White North say that inconsistent, mid-grade cannabis sold with little-to-no branding has soured legal buyers, often pushing them back to the country’s still-thriving black market. “The government’s pot is too expensive,” one Vancouver Reddit user wrote about the province’s legal weed . “The government doesn’t show you a picture of what you’re buying before you buy it, so you cannot be informed as a consumer. The government weed has been full of bugs, moldy, or too dry in some cases, and often takes too long to get there.” Of course, when Canadian pot users and Reddit posters talk about “government pot,” they are referring to legal weed produced by privately-owned or publicly-traded...

Some changes brought on by the novel virus might bolster the nascent hemp industry, but it could also bring additional challenges and obstacles for the nascent hemp industry. Here’s everything you need to know about how COVID-19 could or is already impacting the hemp industry.

The show-and-tell was to accompany the discussion about a license for Magic Dragon LLC, which seeks to open a marijuana microbusiness in Worcester.

Safe Vaping in 2020: Key Questions and Answers After the Health Crisis
(Branding, California, Cannabis, Cigarettes, Edibles, Education, Manufacturer, Manufacturing, Packaging, Pesticide, Products, Quality Control, Research, Testing, Tobacco, United States, Vaporizers, Vaporizers, THC, Dispensaries, Extracts) Welcome to 2020, a time when marijuana prohibition is crumbling and tons of adults are enjoying the ease, convenience, and options of consuming THC. We’ve really got it all — you can eat THC edibles, drink it in your tea, smoke sweet flowers, or vape. All of which should be safe. Before getting high, let’s be honest about something: Last year’s vaping crisis was no joke. A lot of people died from vaping products — a method of consumption that was heretofore marketed as safer than smoking flower. The scare remains a real-world issue, one that’s awaken us to the fact we need a lot more education, research, and vigilance around safe vaping — and what we inhale into our lungs in general. But in the age of fake news, we’re all constantly bombarded with false claims, inaccurate information, and unbridled hype blended with legitimate sources and reliable facts. What can you believe? Who can you trust? And how can you know your next vape won’t hurt you — or worse? Thankfully, MERRY JANE has...

Who's Really Making Money From Legal Weed? It's Not the Farmers
(Branding, California, Cannabis, Clothing, Compliance, Consultants, Deals, Development, Distribution, Distributor, Edibles, Fertilizer, Food, Greenhouses, Grower, Growers, Legalization, Lighting, Management, Manufacture, Manufacturer, Manufacturing, Marketing, Monitoring, Organic, Packaging, Pesticide, Processing, Production, Products, Quality Control, Regulations, Testing, Topicals, Turkey, United States, Lab Testing, Soil, Extracts, Cultivation, Security) Lately we have been thinking about how many people are dependent on the legal cannabis market to make a living. However many that may be, it all starts with the grower, the farmer, and the cultivator. If no plants are grown, there is nothing to sell. As obvious as this sounds, it is most often forgotten in the so-called Green Rush to profit. So, for this whole legalization thing to work, above all, the farmer must be nurtured and cared for just as the plants must be fed and watered. The more we delved into the subject, the more astounded we became at the unbelievable number of people who are actually involved in getting the flower from farm to consumer, or from farm to manufacturer to consumer. The cannabis economy is as extensive and intertwined with every aspect of daily life as is the auto industry. And of course, no cannabis moves without wheels. Basically, there are several tracks which, though seemingly independent, are totally interconnected. The various “touch the plant”...

(Australia, Branding, Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Development, Food, Germany, Greece, GW Pharmaceuticals plc, GWPH, Hemp, Poland, Portugal, Products, Regulations, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United States, THC, Pharmaceuticals) HMS Great Britain has now set forth from its European home port for another intriguing and very British escapade on the high seas. So far the jury is out. It could be the beginning of the next British Golden Age, Spanish Armada and all that. Or could it could end up (more likely) somewhere up the Khyber Pass (a sordid misadventure of British Imperialism that did not go well in the 19th century with global implications still reverberating to this day). For Netflix fans of The Crown, think “Suez Crisis” as a more recent and apt analogy. Starting with as much as a 6.7% reduction in domestic GDP already on the horizon. Snarky historical analogies and nostalgia aside, how will Brexit influence and shape a global cannabis industry, starting at home? The UK Is Not Actually in Regulatory Free Fall The first thing to realize is that most of the puffery around Brexit was that with the exception of labor conditions, there is little free choice in the world of trade anymore.
