Cannabis Couriers and You

July 9th, 2017

On Monday, Colorado State Lawmakers passed a measure to create a new type of cannabis licenses, one for a state-wide marijuana “transporter” or courier services.   Since passing the measure (currently awaiting the Governor’s signature), the bill has been making its way around the news circuits, especially those that are cannabis inclined.  Most of these articles have focused on the fact that this new licenses will allow for marijuana transporters to function within their own class of licensing.   Prior to this measure passing, there were 12 marijuana couriers in Colorado that functioned... Read More

STASHLOGIX is a Logical Solution for Your Stash

July 2nd, 2017

How do you keep all of your herbs, shatter, edibles, and accessories in order?   Are you like me and have a bunch of different containers that you use?  Maybe you use an old cigar box?   Or do you use a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lunchbox from the late 80’s?   If you’re a cannabis connoisseur, I’m sure you have your own way of hiding your stash.   But could it use an upgrade?  I know mine sure can! This is where STASHLOGIX comes into play.  Based in Boulder, STASHLOGIX designs “thoughtful, discreet, and secure” bags and accessories.   While they advertise their bags for... Read More

KushMoji: Emotion in Motion

June 26th, 2017

Once upon a time, it was frowned upon to display, wear, draw, or talk about cannabis.  Thanks to the determination of a defining generation, cannabis is becoming a mainstream topic, product, and discussion.  In Colorado, marketing the cannabis culture can be tricky.   Filled with compliance regulations and restrictions, the cannabis industry has to be creative and cunning when it comes to marketing tactics and KushMoji has done just that with a new iPhone app. KushMoji, the official cannabis emoticon library, couples the playful side of weed with the serious side of marketing straight from your... Read More

Not So Fresh Baked

June 25th, 2017

Today I bring you another retail dispensary review!   Let me preface my review by saying, I am someone who suffers from extreme anxiety at times, especially when in new and uncomfortable situations.    In fact, my number one reason for using MJ is because of its positive effects on anxiety.   I share this with you so as you read on, you understand that some of my points are solely my experiences and may not reflect the experience others may have.   Anyway, without further ado… Fresh Baked Dispensary is a place that I’ve known about since it opened.   I went with a friend a few years... Read More

Cannabis’s Positive Impact on Colorado’s Unemployment Rate

June 18th, 2017

We see it every day, more and more people are moving to Colorado.  We see it in the prices of homes and rent, we see it while trying to do a commute that used to take 15 minutes and now takes 45, and we see its positive impacts on the economy.   The truth is Colorado has one of the strongest economies in the country and now with the country’s lowest unemployment rate, what’s not to love about the state?  Especially for stoners! In fact, according to a CNBC report, Colorado has the Nation’s lowest unemployment rate.  Colorado currently holds a jobless rate of 2.3 percent to the... Read More

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

Shift to the Next Cannabis Gear

May 28th, 2017

With sales in 2016 topping over $1 Billion dollars for cannabis (in fact, Colorado hit that number in the first 10 months of the year), it’s no surprise that a large number of professionals are leaving corporate jobs for this new industry.  Professionals and entrepreneurs alike are seeing how lucrative this industry can be.   However, a lot of them are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of cultivation, retail setup, and even the legal aspects of working within the industry.   That’s where Shift Cannabis Co. comes in.   Shift Cannabis Co is based in Longmont, Colorado and is a consulting... Read More

Take a Trip Down Magnolia Road

May 21st, 2017

Okay, I admit it, I’ve been a little scatterbrained as of late and haven’t really written a review of a cannabis company for a few weeks.  Well fear not, I’m back with one today!   I came across this dispensary while browsing reviews on Weedmaps (one of my most used apps).   What struck me most about the reviews was not only the overall high stars but the consistent mention of quality, affordability, and great service.   These words came up again and again in the reviews, and sure there were some that didn’t paint a great picture (aren’t there always?) but with generally high praise,... Read More

Will Work for Weed and Benefits!

April 30th, 2017

A little over a year ago, I left a job as a corporate sales trainer for one of the country’s largest wireless carriers. There were a lot of reasons I left, but one of the biggest was that I was tired of working for corporate America. I wanted to work for a smaller company. I wanted to contribute more to a small organization who would value my work and talents, not just count me among one of their many drones. More specifically, I thought it would be cool to take my experience as a corporate professional and try to land a job in the cannabis industry. Now I wish I could write about how I’ve... 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
