The emerging legal cannabis industry is going global, with a growing list of countries that have legalized cannabis for adult and/or medical use, and even more countries exploring a similar move. At the same time, the world’s climate is changing, with extreme weather patterns picking up in frequency and severity all over the world.

Climate change is affecting virtually every aspect and sector of the agriculture industry, and that is likely to be the case for cannabis too as outdoor cultivation is permitted in more areas. As the global cannabis industry continues to expand across the planet, and climate change, unfortunately, marches on, the problem for cannabis entrepreneurs is going to be more pronounced.

It’s fascinating how people choose their cannabis products, especially terpenes and flower.

It wasn’t that long ago when the only option was cannabis flower via a local unregulated dealer, and likely only one or two options were available at that.

The “I will take what I can get” strains were the most popular because, well, that was all that was available.

Unlike other hemp-derived compounds, CBD wax quickly offers relief from pain and anxiety.

The hemp industry has come a long way in just a matter of years. The 2018 Farm Bill certainly did a lot of good as it changed the landscape completely for hemp and the cannabis industry. It helped to push the global popularity of CBD and made the medicinal benefits of the cannabinoid evident for all to see. With the increase in popularity of CBD came more users; more people became open to the idea of medical marijuana as a solution to common ailments. Currently, more states are toeing the line of decriminalization for the use of CBD, while others have already eased regulations thus allowing their citizens to benefit immensely.

Cultivation, one of humanity’s oldest crafts, is undergoing radical transformation. And it has cannabis grows to thank for it.  

The roots of farming go back more than 12,000 years as hunter-gatherers established agrarian communities to centralize food production, sharing the work and harvest.

Naturally, these early societies recognized that certain crops grew in abundance in certain climates and cultivated those crops that allowed their civilizations to thrive. 

With trade, commodity crops grown in one area became highly prized and profitable elsewhere – from the Far East spice trade to finding fresh papaya in a New York City bodega.  

The cannabis industry can’t follow this simple, ancient calculus.

Data Can Play a Huge Role in Accelerating Your Cannabis Business' Growth

tablet reading stats and stock info

People often categorize particular talents or behaviors as "right-brain" or "left-brain" thinking. Individuals who are right-brained lead with intuition and creativity. People often describe them as free thinkers. On the other hand, left-brained people are thought to be more quantitative, analytical—the data heads. 

While there's some truth to where certain brain functions lie, scientists also know that reasoning and creativity are not mutually exclusive. As a person who has spent the last three decades in advertising, branding, entertainment, and the digital landscape, you might assume I lead with the right side of my brain. But creativity is often inspired by hard data rather than gut feelings.

Topical CBD (cannabidiol) products are becoming increasingly popular – but recent testing indicates some who use them may not be getting what they paid for.

CBD topicals are being used for a number of applications including general cosmetics, moisturising, treating skin irritations and to relieve muscle and joint pain. Research indicates cannabidiol may be effective in treating or managing a number of skin problems.

As an active ingredient it’s important that what’s in the product is reflected by what’s on the label.
