Finding a Helping Hand on Pearl Street

June 11th, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was having dinner with a couple friends on Pearl Street.   As we were enjoying our meal, we started discussing this blog and some of the dispensaries I should check out – both in Boulder and others in the State.   We decided right then and there, after eating, we’d check out Helping Hand Dispensary which is located on Pearl between 10th and 11th. I’ll be honest, I’ve passed this dispensary a few times and never really given it much thought.  I had never gone in before or looked it up online, so walking in I had no preconceived notions at all.   My first instincts... Read More

The Problem with Being a Cash-Cow

May 14th, 2017

One night after a long day at work, I sat down with my IPad (and my pipe) and started watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver segments on YouTube.    As is normally the case, one segment turned into two and then three and then…well you get the point.   Anyway, one of those segments featured the topic of doing business in the cannabis industry, and its main focus was on how federal law makes it rather difficult for companies in states like Colorado and Washington to do business as a “regular” or “normal” business would. The segment focused on several different things but the one... 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 a little 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... 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

CBD Oil and Iowa’s Intractable Law

March 24th, 2017

Among 13 US States and Territories with some form of decriminalized cannabis, but no specific medical or recreational regulation, Iowa’s law is perhaps the most strange and counterproductive. Patients with intractable and debilitating epilepsy may possess limited amounts of plant oil extracts that are high in cannabidiol (CBD) and have virtually no delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, another State law prohibits cannabis cultivation and any reciprocity in its distribution, while Federal law prohibits transporting the substance across state borders. So, instead of helping, the Iowa... Read More
