Tagua Seed Pipes Vs Glass Pipes

Posted at February 24

Gorgeous "100% Vegetable Ivory" pipes hand carved from a whole dried Tagua seed. These have a "full rind" finish, so the exterior rind or peel of the seed is left intact in its original brown color, and then they are hand polished to become smooth. BIODEGRADABLE.

Crop Insurance for Cannabis Grown Outdoors Now Available

JB Woods JB Woods
Posted at 5/31/2019

In the history of cannabis insurance there has never been a insurance company willing to offer coverage for cannabis plants growing outside.  Think about it, the chances of something going wrong due to weather or criminals seeking an easy target had scared off most insurance companies.  Indoor crop insurance has been available from approximately two companies knowing those plants are protected by four walls, video, alarms, and gated windows. 

However, the thought of offering outdoor crop insurance was unheard of until now. 

The insurance industry is conservative my nature.  The availability of outdoor crop insurance is considered a giant leap forward for both the cannabis and insurance industry.  There are many variables analyzed by actuaries attempting to quantify if a program of this nature will be viable long term.   Those variables include understanding the numerous hail storms that occur in Colorado.  That California is subjected to many wild fires.  Washington State can experience flooding and wind damage.  Knowing an insurance company analyzed these types of risk was the last frontier in cannabis insurance to be conquer...more

Six Reasons to Upgrade to a Premium Account or Microsite on the Who’s Who in Cannabis

Brainsy, Inc.
Posted at 5/30/2019

You may not realize it, but you can unlock a world of benefits by upgrading your account on the Who’s Who in Cannabis. Here we outline six reasons why you’d want to do so.

#1. Traditional social media doesn’t like you. Traditional social media services will block or delete MJ related ads and discussions. They don’t like the cannabis industry – regardless of whether you’re in a state where it’s legal or not – and will take efforts to make your life difficult. Good news on this front? Facebook is being challenged in court on these practices (thank you David C. Holland) so we hope this will change soon.

#2. Your content distribution should be contextual. With a premium presence or Microsite on the Who’s Who, you have publishing rights to the Knowledge Board and Q&A community sections of the site. You can also share brochures or documents. Search “cannabis dispensary expert” in Google and see what comes up on the first page. Do you see an article published by Khadijah Adams on the Who’s Who in Cannabis? Search “cannabis extraction expert” in Google and what do you see? It should be a page of indivi...more
