09.05.19 - Gobbling Up the Market: Consumers Increasingly Seek Ingestible Products

Consumers have spoken, and they want to consume cannabis. In rapidly growing numbers, both connoisseurs and the curious prefer cannabinoid-infused treats, snacks, drinks, and tinctures to combustible, vapable, and topical products. The reasons are many: 50 percent of consumers cite convenience as their number-one reason for choosing ingestibles over other forms. Many say they like the discretion of an odorless product that doesn’t look like cannabis, consistent dosing, and the whole-body relief they can’t find with topicals. Some confess to enjoying the wide variety of flavors and forms ingestibles present.

05.08.2018 - CEO Peggy Moore emphasizes best practices for manufacturing her gourmet cannabis edibles and extractions.

To me, there's a lot of power in this plant," says Moore.

The power of cannabis has allowed Moore to transition from one successful job into a new career.

03.14.18 - Cannabis legislation could legalize tasting rooms 

A guy walks into a bar — and he orders a Love’s Oven chocolate chip Sativa cookie to go along with his fresh mug of dark roast coffee.

While that exact scenario won't be playing out in Colorado any time soon, a bill could allow so-called "tasting rooms" in dispensaries by the first day of 2019. House Bill 1258, introduced in the Colorado Legislature on Feb. 26, and commonly known as the “tasting rooms legislation,” would permit both medical and retail licensed marijuana businesses to have an on-site establishment that sells marijuana products for the purpose of consuming them at the location. (Unfortunately, accompanying items like a beer or coffee won't be allowed.)

She has some help in the kitchen to make sure her products are made to perfection — computerized double ovens “Bonnie” and “Clyde.” Bonnie tests the product and then tells Clyde what to do when everything equates.

03.10.17 - Inspiring Women In The Cannabis Community

The burgeoning marijuana industry benefits greatly from the inspiring women in the cannabis community. One of the most remarkable things about the burgeoning cannabis industry is that there are so many women in the cannabis community. As a relatively modern industry, the cannabis industry has not been marred by decades of patriarchy and sexism. On top of this, the people involved in the cannabis industry tend to be progressive in more ways than simply advocating the legalization of cannabis products. As a result of these factors, and others, the cannabis industry is establishing itself as an industry with excellent gender parity. This has given the women in the industry an excellent platform to reach out as role models, educators, and advocates. Here are some of the most inspiring women in the cannabis community.
