Why Israel Is (and will continue to be) A Global Leader in the Cannabis Industry

When we think about legal cannabis products, there is a certain level of expectation there. The fad of “everything CBD” has faded over the last year and people are looking for more a product that’s merely, CBD-infused.

The cannabis products of today need to be more professional, safe, accurate, and efficient – and this applies to everything from raw flowers to highly processed pharmaceuticals. People want to know what’s in their products and where it comes from, and large stores and pharmacy chains, like CVS for example, will only sell products that contain safe and legal ingredients.

In the very-near future, we can expect to see Israel leading the way in the production and verification of safe cannabis products. Let’s take a look at why this is.

We Implemented Cryptocurrency In Our Cannabis Business. Here's What We Found.

If you’re a cannabis entrepreneur, you already know that banking and payment processing are major issues in the cannabis industry.

There are limited payment options if you sell CBD. It is magnitudes more difficult if you are selling THC-centered products.

Last year, banking issues in the cannabis industry reached the national spotlight when NPR published the aptly-titled article “Bags Of Cash, Armed Guards And Wary Banks: The Edgy Life Of A Cannabis Company CFO”.

Is weed pickup and delivery risky when it comes to COVID-19?

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has good news for even the most efficient hoarders.

As self-isolation measures stretch from days to weeks and the potential for personal food options and cannabis supplies begins to dwindle, the CDC is advising that takeout and delivery services are safe to use.

Transmission of COVID-19 primarily occurs through person-to-person contact, according to the Times Union, so as long as customers keep plenty of space between them and others during the transaction, there shouldn’t be too much to worry about.
