How technology is about to transform the $150B cannabis market

What’s the genius of Amazon? Simple: control of information.

Jeff Bezos turned a little online book store into one of the world’s most valuable corporate behemoths by applying technological solutions to complex problems—creating a model mirrored around the world.

Now, a little-known company is trying to duplicate that feat.

TruTrace Technologies (CSE:TTT; OTC:TTTSF) is helping other companies “Amazonify” their businesses— creating a niche in the tech world that has yet to be filled.

Classing up cannabis: How to create great event collateral

Anyone who has ever walked the expansive floors of an exhibit hall at a cannabis conference knows to expect two things by the end of it: Your feet will be tired and you’ll likely have a bag full of branded items picked up along the way. Let’s get real: Most of the items people grab at conferences have an expiration date shorter than the registration line. Nobody needs a stack of flimsy paper, cheap plastic keychains, or tacky accessories some trend-loving intern came up with—fanny packs, anyone?

“This summer, you have the market in fluctuation, and a bottleneck in processing,” said Merrill Hersey, director of efficiencies at Colomont Inc., a St. Albans hemp and CBD company with about 15 employees. Hemp prices depend on an array of factors including how much labor the grower can muster to pick the hemp when it’s ready; how efficiently it is dried; and its chemical content.

Here’s what happens when you mix marijuana and beer

Mixing weed and beer is pretty common practice. The combination results in a very specific kind of high. Commonly called a crossfade high, those who have experienced it report feeling especially relaxed. This appears to be because alcohol increases the absorption of THC, ramping up the effects of the high, according to Drug Alcohol Dependence.
