How Much Does that Bud Cost to Produce?

Greenhouse Growing

I walk into my favorite cannabis shop (I really don’t have a favorite) to buy a couple of eighths. An eighth costs about $20 a gram (an arbitrary price, but not an uncommon one) so an eighth costs around $70. As I was looking at the buds, I started to think about how much that […]


The Myth of Edibles

Most people like to consume cannabis flower by smoking it, i.e. putting a flame to the flower in a pipe or joint or bong or they like to vaporize the whole flower like in a Volcano or other portable device. But there are many who don’t like the idea of smoking and would rather ingest […]

The cannabis market on the Iberian Peninsula is alive and well…and getting better, albeit slowly. I just returned from a fabulous trip to Portugal and Spain.

How State Dispensary Rules Continue the Stigma of Weed

Cannabis has been mired in a miasma of stigma for the past 100 years. In the US, the stigma was created by the government and then embraced and perpetuated by the media beginning in the 1920s.
