Magic Flight is revolutionising the weed equipment market with wooden products made with love

Hand-made vaporizers serve as 'functional pieces of art'

Just a few years ago, if you wanted to buy some equipment for smoking weed, you were refined to a market stall or dingy head shop selling poorly-made products shipped in from Asia. You know the sort - neon plastic grinders with Bob Marley's face on, lumpy bongs in the shape of goblins, t-shirts emblazoned with alien faces saying 'take me to your dealer'.

Fortunately, as the use of cannabis slowly becomes destigmatised and various levels of legalisation or decriminalisation sweep the globe, those days are gone, and the market for quality paraphernalia is booming.

First large-scale hemp processing plant begins in Colorado

A Fort Lupton plant is starting to test and process Colorado's hemp harvest, turning it into pulp that can be used to make paper, sugar -- even biofuels.

It's nickname may be "ditch weed," but the PureVision Technology processing plant in Ft. Lupton is turning Colorado's newest cash crop into something much more valuable.

The hemp plant is cannabis without the psychoactive properties and growing hemp became legal in Colorado last year, along with the recreational marijuana vote

"I would say it grows like a weed. You throw it in the ground and watch it grow," said Dani Billings, who started growing hemp last year, and was amazed at the low-water usage and high yield.

Hemp spawns new industry in Colorado

Colorado's Amendment 64 is known nationwide as the ballot item that legalized marijuana here, turning the state into one of the country's test sites for decriminalizing and regulating the use of pot for people 21 and over.

But Amendment 64 legalized more than just pot. It also made legal growing industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cousin of marijuana that is poised to create a new industry in Colorado.

While they both come from the same plant, different varieties are used for marijuana and for hemp. They are different both in their botanic composition and their cultivation, according to the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association.
