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

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... 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

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

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
