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 […]


Spain and Portugal: Cannabis on the Iberian Peninsula

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. It was wonderful to easily find several cannabis shops in both countries. It wasn’t that surprising as I was in Italy a few years ago and found  cannabis shops […]

A Cannabis Advocate Sues New Jersey for…Legalizing Weed!!!

This is not as weird as it sounds. NJWeedman (real name Ed Forchion) is a cannabis activist in New Jersey. He wants to overturn the ballot initiative that legalized marijuana in New Jersey.

Does the Cannabis Brand You Buy Understand You?

Does the cannabis brand in your local dispensary understand you or what you want from your cannabis? Probably not. It’s not just limited to cannabis either. Most brands truly don’t understand their customers. Whether it’s spaghetti sauce or cars, the brands you may love truly don’t understand you. Why? There’s plenty of market research around […]


Bud’s Place: Cannabis Business Opportunity

Bud's Place

An Interview with Bud’s Place Founders I met with Bud’s Place franchise founders Mark Cohen and Ron Silberstein in the beginning of July 2020. The pandemic was in full swing when we met and, in Michigan, restaurants were just starting to let people eat inside. It was a warm day and outside seating was full. […]


Can Women Achieve Orgasm With This Company?

Can cannabis help women have more and better orgasms? Here’s a fascinating company that is saying just that! Is it true? I don’t know, because I’m a guy. If it is, are men next? Or do the companies in the cannabis market leave men alone because orgasms are easier for them? I don’t have any […]

Miracle Gro for Cannabis!!!

There are other companies in this segment the Motley Fool calls ancillary companies for cannabis […]


Americans Will Spend $60 Billion on Illicit Marijuana this Year, Report Says

It’s an indisputable fact. Americans spend billions and billions of dollars on cannabis, legal and illegal. In states with a legal adult-use or even medicinal cannabis market, the numbers are staggering. Illicit weed still overtakes legal in dollars spent. Why is this so in a state where cannabis is legal? For starters, the regulatory agencies […]


Leafly Buzz: Smokin’ hot cannabis strains this month

Always good to see what’s new and what’s trending at the retail level where we get our cannabis unless we’re growing our own. My only problem is Leafly doesn’t seem to want to tell us where to get the product and in what state. Until products are available nationwide, ti’s will continue to be a […]


Strain Review – Lazercat Cannabis Live Rosin

This is not an ordinary strain review. If you’ve read my reviews, you’ll know I’m a fan of whole flower consumption. I like flower because it’s holistic. The whole plant might be better than the parts like trichomes, THC, CBD or any other partial use of the plant. I don’t consume vape cartridgess. I have […]

All the states where cannabis is legal report monthly sales. All the states, except one, have had rising sales all year, even during, or especially during, the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. The one state reporting downward sales at the same time; California. Why? California is the outlier in the states with legal adult-use markets […]


Difference Between A Marijuana Dispensary And A Liquor Store

[Canniseur: If you love wine as I do, there really isn’t a whole lot of difference between a wine shop and a dispensary. A wine shop is not a liquor store, although it sells alcoholic beverages. A dispensary should be called a cannabis shop and not a dispensary. A liquor store, that sells mostly spirits […]
