Stop assuming you’ll fail.
We want to run a mile, but we know we can walk the second half if we need to.
We want an A+ on the test, but we’ll settle for a B+.
We want to get good at cloning, but we’ll try selfing instead.
It is ok to acknowledge your limits, but challenging those limits is the only way to grow. And planning for failure stunts that growth. I’ll give you an example.
For those that may be unfamiliar, cloning is the process of propagating a clipping from one plant, creating a separate, but genetically-identical plant…
Since joining the industry, and with increasing frequency as I’ve published more content, I am regularly asked about ways to invest in this space.
Previously, I’ve advised against it (and I still would put it in the high risk category if you’re a more cautious investor). But, over the years, I’ve found that there are three primary ways to invest in the trend of cannabis.
Start by talking to your financial advisor is a great start. If you don’t have a financial advisor, you can also invest from your phone using any number of apps. …
Competition fosters collective growth.
Today, we’re talking about The Grow-Off and the issues that people in cannabis have with competitions.
Let me start by saying that I am in no way affiliated with this competition other than my paid entry as a competitor.
The Grow-Off is a friendly cannabis cultivation competition among home growers and caregivers (as well as licensed facilities, but that’s a different category) who all start from the same genetics (two clones each). Competitors’ final harvests are judged by a lab for cannabinoid and terpene potency, and the highest scores take home the prize.
People say entry…
Demonstrate daily how Cannabis broadens life’s possibilities.
Your daily efforts and actions are a glimpse into possibilities attainable through cannabis, however different that may look from one person to another.
There is an inherent responsibility to your life with cannabis.
You are the vehicle.
You are the window.
For years, people saw cannabis consumers as couch-ridden slackers; people whose main aspiration was simply to get high.
Cannabis’ role in life is to get people high.
Cannabis broadens life’s possibilities.
For some that means being able to get out of bed in the morning or overcome chronic nausea. For…
Taste the rainbow, man.
There is no “right” way to enjoy.
Now that the haze of the holiday has worn off, I wanted to address the mistaken belief that there is a “right” way to enjoy your favorite pastime, whether it’s cannabis, bourbon, or otherwise.
Sure, you can have standards. Sure, you can have preferences. But that doesn’t make your standards or preferences any more “right”, valid, or otherwise. Nor does it justify your judgment of a fellow consumer.
Let me explain.
The book explores the history of sought-after…
If you follow me on any of my social accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn), you’ve likely seen at least one post recently about BitClout and you may be wondering what it has to do with cannabis.
But, before we dive into the weeds, let’s start with a crash course in crypto:
That’s my former “plug” telling me in 2012 that BitCoin (BTC) was about to take off. The obscure web currency used on the dark web was coming into the mainstream. And now was the time to take advantage.
It would be eight years before I took the plunge.
Blunts are not a safe alternative to cigarettes.
I’ve been a blunt smoker since my first puff of pot more than a decade ago.
I love blunts.
But blunts aren’t healthy.
It pains me to say that.
Blunts aren’t healthy.
But we knew this, right?
Even as an avid blunt smoker and past cigarette smoker, I’m among the first to say something like,
“Well, that’s why I gut the blunt, I’m only using the outside wrapper.”
“Well that’s why you have to put a whole eighth in a wood; gotta overpower the tobacco.”
The fact of the matter is…
Most arguments in favor of clones ignore recent advances in seed making. They say:
The cannabis industry has come a long way since the 1970s, and so have the seeds.
When I moved to Colorado five years ago, most dispensaries sold clones, but seeds were hard to find (only a handful of approved seeds existed in METRC (the most common seed-to-sale system in cannabis).
The goal of any room is to add value to your audience.
When people join a room on Clubhouse, they are looking for value. That can be social in nature, but they want to take something away beyond friendly follows and pleasantries.
Some prep is required to do this effectively, but this easy 4-part formula will set your room up for success.
Ideally, you’ll want to identify your main speakers (think “panelists”) prior to starting the room so that you can schedule the room and email participants in advance. …
