Celebrity Brands – Celebrities and Their Cannabis Companies

From Snoop Dogg to Seth Rogen to Mike Tyson. One of the great things about being a celebrity is the ability to both back desirable products (for money, of course!), and start your own company. Sure, we’d all do it if we had the money, but since the majority of us will never be able to use multi-million-dollar paychecks to fund our projects of love, the best we can do is check out those who can. Cannabis is huge in popular culture, and used by the biggest stars out there. Let’s take a look at which celebrities have gotten into the field of starting cannabis companies.

Coffee With Blue Dream: How Cannabis & Caffeine Interact

For many, the jolt of caffeine and the mellowing effects of cannabis make a perfect combination. When the two meet in the body and mind, they can amplify one another, but research is limited as to how they interact on a chemical level.

Scientific studies on what happens when your morning joe meets your morning joint are scattershot and inconclusive, but they provide a rough map of what to expect of this mental terrain. But culturally, caffeine and cannabis seem like natural bedfellows, with everyone’s favorite (legal) upper most likely to be paired with cannabis from a retail perspective.

Cannabis Beverages Continue To Blaze A Trend As One Of The Top Choices For Cannabis Consumers

Cannabis infused beverages are quickly becoming a burgeoning vertical of the entire cannabis industry and this is a trend that we are excited about.

After Constellation Brands (STZ) made a $4 billion investment in Canopy Growth Corporation (WEED.TO) (CGC), we knew that cannabis infused beverages were going to be a major part of the market over the long-term and continue to monitor how the industry advances.

After Constellation decided to enter the legal cannabis industry, additional alcohol companies such as Molson Coors (TAP) jumped on the cannabis beverage bandwagon via a partnership with HEXO Corporation (HEXO.TO) (HEXO) and this is a relationship that we are closely following.

Debunking Some of the Most Common Misconceptions About Cannabis

Not even a decade ago, the idea of legalizing cannabis was still a social taboo and a topic that was mostly avoided by mainstream media outlets, politicians, and celebrities. During its many years of prohibition, a lot of misconceptions about cannabis were born – some were minor marketing and industry blunders, but others were so damaging that they still contribute to the plant’s poor reputation and federal prohibition.

Some waiting in NY prisons for marijuana convictions to be expunged

New York’s cannabis legalization law contains a provision to expunge certain convictions for marijuana-related offenses, and the state Office of Court Administration said the measure is expected to wipe out criminal records for potentially tens of thousands of people — including 19 individuals who are currently serving state prison terms.

The deadline for expunging marijuana-possession convictions is two years from when the law was signed last week by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said OCA spokesman Lucian Chafen. Right now, he said, the estimate of marijuana-related offenses that will be expunged is about 108,000, but that number is expected to grow to about 150,000 when they’re able to identify all portions of the relevant cases.

Women Are the Biggest Buyers of Cannabis Drinks

The cannabis industry has seen some players make big bets on beverages, but so far it hasn’t paid off. The market is definitely growing, just not at the rate many had hoped for. Plus, the slow growth of this form factor is not an indication that it won’t continue to increase and eventually gain even more market share. Cannabis tracking firm  Headset recently released a report on the cannabis beverage industry and found that in the US, “The beverage category’s market share has held fairly steady between 0.85 percent and 1.1 percent over the last several years. In fact, market share to the category was slowly decreasing through late 2019 and early 2020 before maintaining just below 0.9% during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Malta May Legalize Home Cannabis Cultivation

Cultivating cannabis is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding forms of gardening. Whereas some crops can take weeks or even months to show some growth, the cannabis plant grows fairly quickly.

It’s almost as if every day there are new leaves, and eventually, new buds on cannabis plants, which any seasoned cultivator will be quick to point out.

That near-daily gratification makes the cannabis plant one of the most fun crops to cultivate, especially considering that the plant is absolutely beautiful when in full bloom.
