Corporate Involvement In Using Cannabis Medicine To Treat Cancer
The knowledge of using cannabis to directly treat cancer has been consistently growing over the past several years. Advocating primary cancer treatment with cannabis rather than just mitigation of symptoms has historically been relegated to fringe activists, with virtually no acknowledgment from mainstream drug policy reform organizations or corporations. In just the past few months, that has all changed, and the involvement of legitimate institutions in developing cannabinoid-based anti-cancer drugs brings new credibility cannabis extract movement. Public Companies Move Toward Cannabinoid Medicine GW Pharmaceuticals, …

Alan Brochstein of 420 Investor Speaks About Investing in Cannabis Stocks
As we know, cannabis is in the process of going commercial. Whether you think that it is a good or bad thing is a discussion for another time, but the fact remains that there will be a great deal of money made in the industry. Factor in the prospective winners (and losers) on cannabis-related stocks and those numbers begin to be a bit staggering. I had a chance to catch up with Alan Brochstein, founder of 420 Investor, last week, and he offered …

Cannabis Goes Commercial: What Does It Mean For The Industry?
At this point, Americans are pretty much in agreement that cannabis will be legal at some point. In fact, a poll released by the Pew Research Center earlier this week revealed that 75% of those who participated in the survey believed that to be the case. It’s only a matter of time. Another sure bet is that the cannabis industry will experience a great deal of change – it’s happening already. Venture capitalists and angel investors are seriously considering the cannabis sector these days (e.g. Privateer Holdings).

RODAWG: Bringing Class & Sophistication To Cannabis Industry Branding
Although it is an ever-present necessity, packaging is an often overlooked aspect of the cannabis industry. For the most part, legal cannabis is dispensed in plastic pill bottles, often without a child-resistant cap, and only a select few dispensaries, cultivators, and hash makers seem to put much effort into branding. With that said, traditional pill containers are far from aesthetically pleasing, and they are often used in the black market. Further, pill bottles can stir up bad memories for medical marijuana patients who may have had bad experiences with pharmaceutical drugs in the past. New packaging solutions will surely emerge …

Boveda: Optimizing Cannabis Storage Through 2-Way Humidity Control
While it may not be something that your average medical marijuana patient thinks about, the way that you store your cannabis can greatly affect its quality. Growers and dispensary owners have to take great care to make sure that their cannabis is properly dried and then stored in in the proper conditions to ensure maximum quality. In fact, many experienced cultivators will tell you that curing (storing/aging your cannabis) is the most important part of producing connoisseur-quality flowers, and it can be the hardest to master. With that said, Boveda (formerly Humidipak) has developed a solution that can make long-term …

Snakes In The Grass: Stay Informed And Spread The Word
It has been said time and time again, the cannabis industry is changing (and fast). The Weed Activist shines light on this change in a recent column, noting that “we are in a strange matrix in time where cannabis fluxuates between legal and illegal, as well as understood and misunderstood.” While the history of cannabis business shows that acceptance for the plant is spreading throughout the nation, the fact remains that it is still illegal under Federal law. So, there is limited oversight …
