Imagine a steel vat filled with healthy, organic yeast creating THC, CBDs and other cannabinoids as their waste byproduct, which is harvested for both medical and recreational use.
This is now, not the future. Cannabis entrepreneurs have suddenly been flooded with tons of investment money and are using scientific research to find new ways of increasing production yields, improving quality, and to continue providing cannabis-based products to the ever-expanding marketplace.
The push is on to satisfy the millions of users in newly legal states in the USA, and around the world. In recent years the use of CBDs for medical… Continue reading
Thank you Justin Trudeau for introducing legislation to legalize cannabis last year. It was a brave move for any country’s leader, especially one with such close ties to the United States.
This is the third country in the world to legalize cannabis for personal use, Uruguay has legalized cannabis for personal, and medical use, and legalized cultivation also. Spain has restricted legal cannabis use, and has limited the use of medical cannabis, and allows growing for personal use but only out of site of anyone from a street or public place.

Hemp concrete is something from the earth,

Thanks to Proposition 64, as of January 1st, 2018, California’s cannabis legalization is now a fact!
One of the largest purveyors of cannabis in California, Harborside in Oakland opened at 6am and was soon packed to capacity. Operating as a medical marijuana dispensary for many years, Harborside, along with many other medical dispensaries, have chosen to sell recreational marijuana as well now. The only difference besides needing a medical recommendation for medical cannabis (yes, prop 215 is still in effect), is the price.
