You’ve got a new product. How much of it will you sell next year? The guys preparing the slide decks for VC pitches will show astronomical growth.

Although the suits behind the governmental façade have worked hard to convince the general population that smoking marijuana turns the brain to mush, a new study finds that it is actually the abuse of America’s favorite legal intoxicant, alcohol, that can result in deteriorated brain function.

I wonder what my teenage pot parties would have been like if my friends and I had been consuming cannabis tea instead of smoking joints. I’m sure we’d still have been listening to The Grateful Dead and staring at LP covers (yes, that’s how far I go back). But perhaps we would have been a […]

Finding a long-lost cannabis concentrate is a bittersweet moment.

Marijuana enthusiasts know there are common side effects that come from medicating with or enjoying cannabis, like forgetfulness, red eyes or even the dreaded “couch lock.” Perhaps the most common side effect for cannabis users is the onset of dry mouth after inhaling marijuana or ingesting edible products.

As marijuana gains some measure of mainstream acceptance as a medical and recreational drug, its industry is becoming more commercialized. And many users, especially in communities of color, want to reclaim its counter-culture significance. The group Women.Weed.Wifi. has started a movement to do just that.

If you look at the shelves of your favorite dispensary these days, you may notice that something stands out at you…or you may notice that nothing in particular stands out. Therein lies the issue. In an industry that’s rapidly changing all the time, with new brands popping up daily, it’s surprising how little the on-shelf […]

If you’re on this website, it stands to reason you’re down with cannabis.

At first glance, it’s hard to decide who’s wearing the better outfit: the mustachioed man with the bud-leaf button-up and rhinestone ball cap, or the ponytail guy with the tie-dye shirt featuring a Rastafarian Cookie Monster, who looks a lot like regular Cookie Monster, but with dreadlocks and a treat you assume is laced. But […]

Orlando-based Attorney John Morgan, who financed the campaign to pass Amendment 2, filed a lawsuit Thursday demanding that the state allow patients to smoke medical marijuana.

The stereotype of cannabis users being stoner slackers whose only motivation is to eat a whole bag of Doritos is quickly becoming as outdated as a landline.

Just like that, Mexico joined Canada this month in making medical marijuana legal nationwide. And the Canadian Parliament is considering making adult-use marijuana legal across the nation by mid-2018.

Go to a California cannabis event and you’re likely to walk away with a free hat—or a bumper sticker, or a t-shirt, or tote bag emblazoned with a cannabis company’s logo.

Marijuana use is being destigmatized at an unprecedented rate.
