420 with CNW – Why You Should Consider Juicing Cannabis

Who could have predicted just how mainstream the controversial plant has become? Even though cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, numerous states have legalized either medical or adult-use cannabis. The industry was valued at $13.6 billion in 2019 and experts expect it to grow even bigger. Most of its popularity is owed to THC and CBD, two of the over 100 cannabinoids produced by cannabis. These cannabinoids have a wide variety of potent medicinal properties that make cannabis a good alternative to some pharmaceuticals. However, did you know that you can consume cannabis in its raw form without…

420 with CNW – Marijuana-Infused Products Are Not Attracting New Consumers, Survey Finds

According to a survey that was released earlier this week (on Tuesday), new marijuana users make up about a quarter of all legal Canadian cannabis consumers. However, many seem to be shying away from cannabis-infused products, which were created for the sole purpose of drawing in more consumers into the market. This survey, which was conducted by the Brightfield Group, had 3,000 Canadian marijuana users participate in the survey. They discovered that new marijuana consumers, including those who began consuming marijuana after the drug was legalized in 2018, account for 25% of legal marijuana purchases in the year’s second quarter.…

420 with CNW – Coin Shortage Worsens Payment Challenges in Marijuana Industry

The cannabis industry has come pretty far from the days of universal prohibition, but the industry still faces a couple of major setbacks. Chief among them is a lack of access to banking and cashless payment services. Although numerous states have legalized either medical or recreational cannabis, it still remains illegal at the federal level and banking institutions avoid working with cannabis businesses in fear of retaliation from the federal government. The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t made it easier; with the government advocating for cashless payments to reduce the spread of the virus, it has become clear just how much the…

420 with CNW – Vermont Marijuana Policy Reform Bills Sent to Governor’s Desk

A proposal to legalize cannabis sales in Vermont and another one that provides automatic expungements for marijuana convictions have been pushed to the governor’s desk after a final Senate vote was conducted on Tuesday. The state Senate approved the negotiated legislation with a 23-6 vote after the House of Representatives had approved it. In 2018, Vermont legalized the cultivation of 2 marijuana plants and possession of a maximum of 29 grams of marijuana. However, no regulations that allow retail sales were put in place. The governor of Vermont, Gov. Philip Brian Scott (R) has yet to explicitly confirm or deny…

420 with CNW – Legal Marijuana Now Party Meets Requirements for Official Registration in Nebraska

For the past six years, Mark Elworth Jr. has been working on forming a party to support marijuana legalization in Nebraska. As the November 2020 election approaches, he figures he’s collected enough signatures over the years to make the Legal Marijuana Now Party official. The party was established in 1998 as an off-shoot of the Grassroots-Legalize Cannabis Party to oppose drug prohibition. Although it shares many of the same progressive values as the Farmer-Labor Party, it mostly focuses on hemp and marijuana legalization issues. Back in 2014, Elsworth turned in the petition to officially register the party but came up…

420 with CNW – How to Be an Eco-Friendly Marijuana Consumer

There are various ways to consume marijuana. Unfortunately, most of these consumption methods create waste.  According to an EPA report from July 2018, Americans recycle almost 34.7% of waste. Up until January of this year, the United States exported roughly half of that plastic waste overseas to be recycled. Since China stopped accepting foreign waste for recycling, millions of tons of recyclable waste may end up in the ocean or landfills this year. However, PL28, a company actively involved in cleaning up plastic from the oceans and converting it into packaging for the marijuana industry may have a way out…

420 with CNW – Carbon: The Unsung Hero in Cannabis Growth and Yield

Up to 60% of the adult human body is composed of water and for human beings to survive, we need to take an adequate amount of water regularly. Plants are no different. Made primarily of carbon, cannabis plants also require plenty of carbon to thrive but if you ask most people what kind of nutrition plants need, they are more likely to mention “NPK”, “CalMag, or “micronutrients”. However, these elements make up no more than 10% of the composition of most plants and while they are beneficial, they do not provide everything the plant needs. For cannabis growers, the most…

420 with CNW – Massachusetts Cannabis Dispensary Claims Regulatory Delays Cost Them Millions
