Growing Revenue: Colorado Cannabis Taxes

March 31st, 2017

It’s that time of year; when the country pays its taxes! While not exactly Christmas, among the complication and stress many US citizens experience during this time, one thing is certain: the process involves a lot of giving. The Federal and State governments give out tax refunds, or residents give back what they owe. We pay taxes to fund and support our government. The government represents us through programs, services and benefits paid for by tax dollars. Some believe they pay too many taxes, or at too high a rate, without receiving the desired returns. This sentiment is shared by select... Read More

Time To Eat?

March 29th, 2017

As we approach bathing suit season, many Americans are planning to drop some winter weight. Changing when and what you eat could be the edge you need to see weight loss results that you aren’t seeing from just following a healthy diet. Fine tune your eating habits with the following tips to help you dump the plump this spring. Have dinner earlier. Stop eating around mid-afternoon, and don’t start again till morning. “Restricted feeding” cuts appetite and ups fat burning at night, researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center say. Go low carb once a week. Eating just three low-carb... Read More

Hashing It Out

March 28th, 2017

Cannabis extracts, or hashish, is way more potent than smoking regular flower. I am not sure about your tastes, but occasionally I need something with a little more kick to it. Rough days happen, whether it is out on the trail or in the office and hash can be just what the doctor ordered. The hard part is deciding what kind to choose. Everyone has their preference these days, from the old- school pressed hash to the new oil concentrates, here are some of my favorites. The crystals that cover a cannabis leaf are called trichomes and hash production begins with separating these trichomes from the... Read More

Wanna Know How to Grow Like Pros? Ask Surna, Boulder’s Cannabis Cultivation Experts

March 26th, 2017

I bet most of you (if there is anyone reading this yet – come on friends don’t be shy in the comments!) thought I would be writing about a local dispensary for my first official Canna-Business Review, but I thought I’d shake it up to show that I’m an unpredictable person always willing to stretch the boundaries of imagination… okay, so maybe not that far, but I am willing to stretch this blog to uncover all of Boulder’s cannabis companies.  To be honest, when I started my search for my first review, I figured I would be selecting a dispensary.  However, as I mentioned last week, I... Read More

Why Must You Pet the Alien Lifeform?

March 26th, 2017

Right, guys, time for another thought experiment! Imagine you’re a scientist. You’re part of a team on an alien planet or a space station, and you have come into contact with a non-terrestrial-based lifeform; i.e. an alien. You are within close physical proximity of the creature. You have no idea about its biology, capabilities, or motivations. Should you: Pet it Not pet it Obviously, the correct answer is #2. I’m not saying you should take the George W. Bush approach and thoughtlessly annihilate anything you don’t understand, I’m just saying a teaspoonful of caution... Read More

Grow Room Hygiene

March 25th, 2017

Many people have big problems with their cannabis grow that could have been prevented by practicing good Grow Room hygiene.  They carefully nurtured their plants for weeks, only to have to destroy them because they became infested with spider mites during the flowering stage.  Or the plants developed Powdery Mildew, causing the grower to have to uproot them and start over.  Plants can also be stunted or slow to develop from problems caused by poor Grow Room hygiene.   It costs money to grow your own cannabis.  You have to pay for clones (or seeds), electricity, timers, water, nutrients,... Read More

Allergy Fighting Foods

March 22nd, 2017

Higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have led to more potent pollen. Warmer temperatures have led to earlier springs and longer allergy seasons. If you suffer from spring allergies, that means a longer period of time being just plain miserable. The good news is that natural allergy relief is as close as your local grocery store. Foods rich in vitamin C and folic acid help reduce the inflammation associated with allergic reactions. Chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth, you’re gonna love this! Cocoa has been found to have some anti-allergy properties by reducing the body’s ability... Read More

Teaching Your Parents About Cannabis

March 21st, 2017

Senior citizens have become the fastest growing group of cannabis consumers since 2009. The federal government made cannabis illegal in 1937. For most their lives our parents have only known this unprocessed plant to be off limits. However, the times they-are-a-changing. Walk into any cannabis shop and many friendly faces in there will resemble your parents. Cannabis is practically made to accommodate and improve the quality of life for those advancing in age, so give it a try. Unfortunately, to start, I am going to have to see their identification. Colorado has an odd compliance law that makes... Read More

From the Ground Up

March 19th, 2017

Welcome to Canna-Business Review!  A weekly blog that will focus on researching the different cannabis companies in and around Boulder, Co.  Each week we will highlight a local cannabis company, and share what makes that company unique – be it their products, services, employees, or what they give back to the community.   As a Colorado citizen or even a visitor to the state, it’s easy to see dispensaries popping up on every block (move over, Starbucks!), but what other companies are out there in the area that are contributing to this new industry?  That’s what I want to find out. Why... Read More

Stockholm Syndrome is So Romantic

March 19th, 2017

I hope you’re all sitting comfortably because I’m about to lay some righteous science on you. Ready? Disney loves money. They like art and respect the occasional creation of a timeless classic, but more than anything, the House of Mouse loves the Benjamins. Even back in the day, they knew the massive value of their IP’s. That’s why every few years, you might see a theatrical re-release of Pinocchio. After home video and DVD blew up, Disney branched out. They sunk millions into lavish Broadway productions, thousands into terrible direct-to-video sequels, TV series,... Read More
