If you run your own cannabis shop, or are looking to start one up someday, here are a few ideas to get your mind on the right page.
Cocktails are now a great alternative to relax and unwind, but a new trend that is probably noticed everywhere is catching on, a pretty cool move moreover. This year’s universal food trend is cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis seeds, leaves, and, buds that has been sneaking its way toward cocktail menus around the globe.

While growing cannabis is an art and I am not a true master of the soil, my goal is not to grow "the best" cannabis plant. My goal is grow a consumable cannabis plant for the least amount of money possible. It's no secret that I am a user of medical cannabis. I have found so many benefits from using this plant. I am also known for being thrifty. After some discussion with my wife, I figured I would invest some money in a grow box.I logged on my Amazon account and did some online window shopping. "They want how much for a tent?" I was interested in buying a full kit, but as a person who does not believe in credit cards; I just could not stomach seeing that money fly out of my account for a tent, a fan, and some lights.I found some online videos and other references of how to create a cardboard home grow box. I'm not going to lie, a lot of these looked more like a kindergarten class assembled it.
Anyone who has been a longtime stoner knows a person (or at least, heard stories of a person) who has been arrested or evicted because the wrong person smelled smoke wafting out of their room. In college, hearing about potheads kicked out of school is especially common.
The buzz around the legal cannabis industry is growing louder as the days progress. Thanks to Canada's recent federal legalization of the plant for recreational purposes, pressure has ramped up for US lawmakers to do something about its own egregious pot laws. While the legalization of hemp, the next super crop, is certainly a promising start, cannabis itself still remains a Schedule I drug.
Cannabis is on the cusp of widespread legalization, but on a federal scale, it's still considered a Schedule I substance. That means the government literally classifies it on the same level as drugs like heroin and cocaine. Obviously, some states wouldn't be legalizing it on a smaller scale if that was actually true, but it still remains a factor in terms of how the law is enforced.
While we're undoubtedly the closest we've ever been to widespread legalization of cannabis, it is still illegal on a federal level. Even on a statewide scale, recreational marijuana is only legal in 10 states and the District of Columbia.
Marijuana has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. Marijuana has powerful medical benefits, and it has been enjoyed as a drug since ancient times. But, for whatever reason, it sometimes gets a bad rap. Marijuana users are stereotyped as being lazy slobs—“stoners” who don’t have much of a life beyond their drug of choice.
Being a pothead is a mostly healthy habit that has an awfully high risk associated with it. I'm talking, of course, about the risk of arrest. Having any kind of drug habit puts you at risk of being arrested, even if it's something as simple as weed.
Nearly 55 million Americans are active pot smokers—that’s about 22 percent of the population of the US. Within those 55 million, if you consider yourself a pothead, social smoker or one time user, chances are you know the distinct smell of weed and how just one gram can stink up an entire room. Although marijuana laws are loosening up, that doesn’t mean that you should go around smelling like a fresh jar of weed. There are clever ways that you can hide your pot stash to make it seem that you don’t have any at all, and will keep you from invading a room with that distinct scent.
While marijuana is one of the least dangerous drugs out there, legal or otherwise, it’s not without its dangers. A “marijuana overdose,” as long is it’s not mixed with other substances, is not lethal like most other drugs. However, the line between an intense high and feeling too high is a fine one. If you’re smoking weed with others, you should always be conscientious and prepared to help a friend who got too high.
