The Shield vs. MMJ

April 29th, 2017

As 2017’s NFL Draft closes this evening, let’s take a look at the league’s policy regarding players’ cannabis consumption. Yesterday, Commissioner Goodell – welcomed by steady boos throughout the draft, every year (sparked, perhaps, by resentment toward his ~$35 Million salary, and his catering billionaire owners over player welfare and safety) – made a public statement on marijuana use, consistent with his previous rhetoric on the issue. Goodell basically maintains that the league will remain consistent with current medical research, and continue exploring potential... Read More

4/20 is the New Black (Friday)

April 23rd, 2017

We are now in the third year of legal recreational marijuana in the state of Colorado.  That means, this last Thursday, April 20th, better known as 4/20 (aka 420, 4:20) by potheads the world over, celebrated the third year of this special “holiday” in the state that started the legalization party.   The day is celebrated a variety of ways.   There are massive outdoor parties to mark the occasion (you all probably heard of reported headaches experienced at this year’s downtown event).   Gear is freely given out to help promote the day and their brands by local cannabis companies.  ... Read More

SENSIble Celebrations On The High Holiday

April 21st, 2017

Most cannabis consumers and cultivators do not require additional encouragement to celebrate their favorite cash crop. Still, the community has seen 4/20 grow from codeword, to an active movement on college campuses, and into a fully international cultural phenomenon. True to the Old English etymology, April 20 has become a holy day – where masses gather to collectively light-up, while dispensaries unroll their best deals and newest products – for those involved with cannabis culture. While many ‘outsiders’ still approach the date with irreverence (even annoyance), my personal experience... Read More

Happy Holidaze

April 18th, 2017

Well, it is that time of year again. It has been on everyone’s minds for the last few weeks. Nobody is sure what to expect but they all know it will be good. Ski season has ended, summer is on the horizon, and our annual April event is about to kick off. Vin Diesel and his buddies are back at it with another installment in the Fast and the Furious film franchise. Hahaha just kidding. Happy 420 everyone! I must say though, the correlation between the rise in April 20th celebrations and the comeback of Vin Diesel is an interesting connection that should not go unnoticed. If you work in the weed... Read More

The Farm’s Green Pastures

April 16th, 2017

Last week, I introduced you to The Farm.   I was very impressed with their website, and the way that they market themselves in general to Colorado’s cannabis consumers.  As I mentioned at the time, I felt that they did a lot on their site to set themselves apart from the competition.  Their website was clean, well structured, and full of information about them as a company and their products.  Based on what they were presenting, I had high hopes for my first visit, so I went the first chance I had. First things first, The Farm doesn’t look like your typical corner dispensary.   In fact,... Read More

High Expectations: An Introduction to The Farm

April 9th, 2017

Okay, so I’ll admit this, I’ve never visited The Farm – one of Boulder’s most popular recreational dispensaries.   In fact, to be super honest, I live closer to the Denver/Aurora area and since I loathe traffic, I try to shop dispensaries near me.  However, if I said I had never heard of The Farm, I’d be lying as well.  Some of my weed-loving friends and acquaintances rave about The Farm, so much so that it made me make it this week’s Canna-Business Review focus. Now before we jump into what an actual visit to The Farm is like (stay tuned for an upcoming blog post) or their customer... Read More

Featuring.. The 14er Boulder!

April 7th, 2017

**Strain Highlight: Strawberry Banana**   With cannabis growth, increased demand, control and gene pool, the names we ascribe new strains greatly influences the industry’s assimilation into our popular culture. Sure, there are novelty strains – like those named for famous stoners: Willy Nelson, Bill Maher, and Snoop Dogg. And, often, it may seem like growers and dispensaries simply pull names from their head-space with help from their product, like a good title meant to attract a target audience. However, strains are usually named for very specific qualities breeders seek to achieve... Read More

My Type of Bolder: Bolder Cannabis and Extract

April 2nd, 2017

Last week, I highlighted Surna whose products are aimed at cannabis cultivators, and I must’ve caught the green thumb (I know, I know, I should try harder but my Sunday ritual consists of a wake and bake and me sitting down to write this… plus you know the recent spring weather has me all a flutter) because this week’s review focuses on Bolder Cannabis and Extracts.  Bolder Cannabis and Extracts is “the purveyor of Colorado’s finest, most artisanal cannabis and extracts.”   That’s a pretty powerful statement, but as I come to find out it’s a very accurate one for the Boulder... Read More

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

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
