In the past year, it’s quite surprising how suddenly Delta-8 THC products have exploded onto the scene, revolutionizing the hemp and cannabis market for those looking to catch a high-quality buzz. Since it’s a relatively new discovery, many people haven’t tried Delta-8 THC products yet, and still aren’t aware of how it differs from Delta-9 THC or it’s other practical benefits. Delta-8 THC is an “alternative cannabinoid” (an industry term that describes a compound other than traditional THC or CBD) that gives you a unique buzz that you simply can’t find anywhere else. It lets you relax and unwind but also provides you with the fun, psychoactive experience that you look for when you take regular THC. For all those total Delta-8 beginners (and those who are more in the know), here’s
James Brobyn, the founder/CEO of Delaware-based CBD oil company Ambassador CBD, is taking the market by storm with something highly desirable: pure CBD oil imported from Jamaica and Colombia.

Despite the pandemic, the demand for cannabis continues to climb year-over-year and more markets are expected to open or expand business in the coming year. Many industries experienced massive drops in sales during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic—including local restaurants and bars, movie theaters, and airlines. But that was not the case for the cannabis market, where legal sales surpassed $17.5 billion in 2020, a 46 percent jump year-over-year. That’s according to a report that also projects that the cannabis industry is again poised for major job growth. In the report, Karson Humiston, founder and CEO of cannabis recruiting firm Vangst, predicted that “2021 is where we’re going to see tremendous job growth, and we think it’s going to be the biggest job creation year the ca

Here’s something that many cannabis users are completely ignorant of, but that every cannabis company knows all too well: the cannabis industry, built on the growing and selling of what is becoming an increasingly regulated legal substance, is an industry that has to meet some very strict video surveillance requirements in order to remain in operation. Depending on the state your business is located in, these requirements vary widely. A few municipalities, like the state of California, require that you monitor facilities using one-megapixel cameras. Others, meanwhile, only accept footage shot with a device that has at least eight. As if that wasn’t bad enough, each state also has its own mandate on video storage length. These state-specific rules are, in turn, complimented by more u
Though some weed users may argue that all cannabis strains are the same, an expert in the industry will tell you that they’re not. A true cannabis enthusiast can quickly tell the difference between exotic strains and ordinary strains. Luxury strains are more than potency: the flavor and smell are key factors.

The company is widely known for creating award-winning strains such as Peanut Butter and Jelly and Birkinz.

When we first brought up VPD (Vapor Pressure Deficit) a short while back we found that it was basically a new concept for a lot of people. Not just for home growers but even for industrial grow facility workers who are running large commercial indoor growing systems. It was clear that this topic needs to be spread to as many eyes and ears that grow as we all need to see and hear more about it. VPD is as important as the nutrients you feed and the lights you place above your plants whether high intensity discharge lights like HPS bulbs or full spectrum LED grow lights. It’s true that plants eat photons and like a balanced diet of them (yes, you read that right—plants do eat photons!) but your environmental conditions needs to be on point for you to maximize your crop yields and overall
Hemp CBD startup, Chow420 is taking the market by storm after raising $1 million in seed funding and has now built a blockchain-powered cannabis ecosystem to simplify and facilitate trade amongst all stakeholders in the Hemp and CBD industry. Unlike pharmaceuticals, it is incredibly difficult to create a consistent cannabis product as small changes in the growing process affect the nature of the plant and the final product. Another challenge is the lack of FDA regulation, which has led to opportunistic actors taking advantage of the fast-growing, but relatively under-developed market, at the expense of consumer safety. Chow420 is solving these challenges, head-on, by building a first of its kind certification standard on the Binance blockchain network. Last year, Chow420 completed t...
