Florida Marijuana Uncertainty — Unnerved Residents & Confusion Slow Community Access

February 28, 2017

florida marijuana uncertaintySure, Florida and marijuana had a limited legal arrangement before and — true — the amendment text dictated a six-month deadline before licensing rules and regulations were fully promulgated.

February 23, 2017

colorado marijuana laws clones growColorado marijuana laws are changing continually. Tuesday, the 14th of February 2017, a trio of Colorado legislators — two Representatives and one Senate member — proposed a 19 page bill that would create a framework for allowing medical patients and recreational customers at-home delivery within the state of Colorado, allow for businesses to transfer license type from recreational to medical under specific circumstances, and allow the Colorado marijuana licensing authority MED review the average market rate quarterly rather than biannually. This is just one of the handful of Bills proposed in the State thus far.

The Best Weed Grown in Colorado

February 23, 2017

best weed grown in ColoradoColorado has become a hub for great weed. We've been lucky enough to have plenty of time perfecting our weed to the point where we've built a recreational tourist industry around our exceptional recreational cannabis. Our growers have spent years developing new strains and cross breeding other strains to develop cannabis that is more potent than anything anywhere else, as well as more aesthetically pleasing with better, longer lasting highs. Colorado is the birthplace of several strains renowned nationwide, and we aim to cover these. A lot of these strains were developed by the master growers at several of the larger Denver dispensaries, meaning that if you see a strain you like, you'll be able to pick it up on your visit out here in all of its glory. If you live here, there are even clones available for the home-grower that wants to try their hand at producing some of the best weed in Colorado. In no particular order, check it out:

What Role Will CBD Play in Florida Medical Marijuana?

February 22, 2017

florida medical marijuana, CBDThe use of CBD (cannabidiol) has been and will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical marijuana program. The use of CBD has been legal in Florida since 2014. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed senate bill 1030 into law in 2014, which allowed medically qualified patients with a written doctor's recommendation to get access to CBD oil as treatment for debilitating conditions. Under this low-THC law, patients were (and still are!) able to possess cannabis oil that contains 10% or more CBD as long as it contains no more than 8/10ths of one percent of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). While this law is still in place for patients that need access to CBD under the age of 18, Amendment 2, Florida's Medical Marijuana Initiative, will continue the use of CBD for medical patients. The role of CBD is understood statewide, and this cannabinoid is appreciated for its medical benefits more so than THC for the initiative's qualifying conditions. Here's what we found out on Florida's low-THC law, and how the use of CBD will continue to be a predominate feature of Florida's medical cannabis program.
