‘High times’ for Yaadcore’s career, cannabis advocacy

Yaadcore

Yaadcore has followed up The Calling and Tension with a ganja-heavy song that pays tribute to the medicinal properties of cannabis while making a clear call to action against the fight the plant has faced. And if the original single, Nyquill (Spliff A Light Spliff), was not poetic enough, he recently invited veteran reggae singer Richie Spice to create a psychedelic remix, the audio-visual production for which was premiered on High Times, dubbed the cannabis culture bible.

“Mi feel good, enuh,” Yaadcore told The Gleaner about the recognition he has received from the US-based magazine that for over 30 years has shed light on counterculture ideas and the news around — and advocated for the legalisation of marijuana.

The global cannabis beverage market is estimated to reach $2.8 billion by 2025 and is projected to see a growth rate of 17.8% from 2019 to 2025. As consumer behavior shifts from carbonated soft drinks to health sodas and legalization gains more footholds across the country, the cannabis beverage market pivots to offer consumers potent and flavor-forward beverages that offer a fresh take on the time-honored ritual of “kicking back with a cold one”. Innovative technologies are likewise flourishing, a development that both drives and responds to growth in the cannabis beverages market.

The Cannabis User’s Starter Kit

Cannabis, weed, marijuana, for the longest time, was thought to only have been used by stoners. This is certainly no longer the case as cannabis is now used for both recreational and importantly, medicinal purposes. Research and technology have been used to find and understand the herb’s real benefits if the dosage and use is managed wisely. The industry is booming today because of many more countries legalizing its use in some way. The size of this market was just over USD10 billion in 2018, and incredibly, it is anticipated to reach just over USD100 billion in 2026. Many stores, both physical and online, such as dailyhighclub.com make this possible by offering a wide variety of products.
