Recession to wipe out weed firms trying to make ‘quick buck’

With investors becoming more cautious and capital more expensive, only the strongest cannabis firms will survive a downturn in the global economy. 

Cannabis startups in Europe are facing a harder time raising capital amid recession fears and sinking stock markets, but that could ultimately help the industry. 

“This period will be really good for clearing out those who were just trying to make a quick buck,” said Alastair Moore, the founder of Hanway Associates, a research firm focused on marijuana. “That’s a good thing for the sector.”

Startups likely to survive include those that have already built strong, sustainable business models, according to Moore. That will help them keep winning over investors who are becoming more cautious, he said.

CBD sponsorships are now welcome for teams in the Major League Baseball (MLB) organization, which could open up many new advertisement opportunities.

The MLB stated in a conference call on June 21 that CBD is now an “approved category” which means that teams are now allowed to sell CBD sponsorships as long as the brand has received an NSF certification (a verification that a product has no THC).

Binoid has the products you need.

Pot now treated like any other business


California voters legalized recreational marijuana via a ballot initiative in November 2016, almost six years ago. Since then, the weed has evolved into something like a normal business, complete with webcasts on operating efficiently, disputes about where stores can be located and gripes about underground operators siphoning off too much of the take.

But there’s little normal about pot itself. First made semi-legal by the 1996 Proposition 15, which allowed medical marijuana use with a doctor’s “recommendation” (not a real prescription, since pharmacies never sold it), medipot operated in a kind of gray legal area for 20 years, but was nevertheless in common use.

This cooling hemp skin-care line is a hot-weather hack

Chances are your skincare routine needs to adjust to the extreme heat and sun exposure during peak summertime. For me, it means swapping out heavy creams for more lightweight formulas or opting for products with skin-cooling ingredients — and I just so happened to find the holy grail of hydrating hot-weather products at Hey Bud. The Australian skin-care brand is most notable for using hemp seed oil as a hero ingredient in its lineup, which not only helps relieve conditions like dermatitis and psoriasis but also aids in collagen production, thanks to the oil's high levels of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.

April 25 was expected to be its last day of trading.

Squier’s Specialty Edibles: Real fruit, real flower, no funny business

Squier’s Speciality Edibles on their all-natural and holistic approach to all things fruity, good, and canna-curious.

Squier’s Specialty edibles is all about the real and the authentic. Take a peek into their process.

The world of edibles has undergone colossal growth since the days when consumers were buying their brownies from their dealer down the street with complete disregard as to the quality and quantity of cannabis they put in them.

This often raised the question of, “Was this store-bought brownie mix infused with some poorly ‘homemade’ cannabutter so potent it was about to blast you into another dimension, or so low-grade that you would need a whole tray just to feel the effects?”
