    Your Cannabis Tax Dollars at Work

    Any way you look at it, the cannabis industry has been a boon to Colorado. It’s created nearly 20,000 jobs, and cannabis tourism benefits any number of businesses – hotels, restaurants, and gas stations are just a few of the establishments making money from all those out of state visitors. But it’s the cannabis taxes […]

  • New PAC Aimed at Legalization

    The current administration’s stance on cannabis is a source of concern for those of us who’ve benefited from legalization. While Trump declared the matter to be one of states’ rights during his campaign, he’s been mum on the issue since taking office. And his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has stated bluntly that “good people don’t […]

    CBD as Treatment for Autism?

    Some of the fiercest advocates for the legalization of cannabis are moms. Or MAMMAs, as the case may be. MAMMA stands for “Mothers Advocating Medical Marijuana for Autism,” and these women are serious about helping their children who are suffering from autism. Estimates of the number of children living with autism in the U.S. range […]

  • What’s the Deal with Initiative 300?

    When Denver’s Initiative 300 passed in November, a lot of people assumed that we’d soon be allowed to smoke or vape cannabis in bars. That, however, won’t be the case, though final rules and regulations have yet to be adopted. The city’s website says: “In November 2016 Denver voters approved Initiative 300, granting businesses the […]

  • NectarBee® Sugar Scrub: Sweet Skin Relief

    Skin. The largest organ of the body, and the most visible. Most of us don’t pay nearly enough attention to keeping it healthy, but it’s never too late to start. My new skincare obsession is NectarBee® Sugar Scrub, sold exclusively at The Green Solution®. Two varieties are available: Soothe (think indica), and Rejuve (think sativa). […]

  • Abandoned Nuclear Bunker Turned into Massive Grow

    Strange things happen in places that haven’t legalized cannabis. Take for instance what happened earlier this year in England. Acting on a tip, British police discovered a large-scale cannabis grow. Not so unusual unless you consider the circumstances – the grow was set up in an abandoned nuclear bunker. The bunker was a relic of […]

  • Cannabis, Clubs, and Classes

    For those of us old enough to remember the bad old days of prohibition, the legalization of cannabis is somewhat miraculous. What we used to enjoy furtively behind closed doors is now out in the open and legally sanctioned (at least here in Colorado). One of the wonderful side effects of legalization is the opportunity […]

    Cannabis Friendly Summer Getaways (Pt. 2)

    Summer’s almost here, and we know you’re ready to get out of town. In our continuing look at Colorado destinations, we thought we’d share a hidden gem right out of a fairy tale: Bishop Castle in the San Isabel National Forest southwest of Pueblo, Colorado. This bizarre structure in the middle of the woods was […]

  • Cannabis as a Solution to the Opioid Epidemic?

    Regardless of where you live, you’re likely well aware of the opioid epidemic devastating large swaths of the country. In 2015, opioids (including prescription opioids and heroin) killed more than 33,000 people – that’s more than 80 people each day. Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid, and around 80% of […]

  • NectarBee® Massage Oil

    The exact origins of massage are lost to history (one can imagine cavepeople rubbing each other’s sore muscles after a long day of mammoth hunting), but archaeological evidence suggests that it was in common practice over 4000 years ago. An Egyptian wall painting in the Tomb of Akmanthor dates from 2330 BC and depicts two […]

  • Colorado Adds PTSD to List of Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana

    After 16 years of waiting, Coloradoans suffering from PTSD got excellent news. On Monday, Governor Hickenlooper signed into law Senate Bill 17, which adds PTSD to the list of eight qualifying conditions (cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, cachexia, persistent muscle spasms, seizures, severe nausea, and severe pain) for which patients can access medical marijuana. It’s the first […]

  • Marijuana for Menstrual Cramps? New York Considers Medical Option

    Women with menstrual cramps in New York state could have a new option for easing their monthly pains: medical marijuana. The New York State Assembly is considering a bill to add dysmenorrhea — the medical name for menstrual cramps — to the list of conditions for which doctors can legally authorize a patient to use […]

    Despite the Current Administration, Cannabis Stocks Soar

    Despite the uncertainty generated by the Trump administration’s statements on the matter, the massive profits and job creation created by the cannabis industry make it looks as if legal cannabis is here to stay. In 2016, legal marijuana sales in the United States totaled nearly $7 billion – an unprecedented 30% growth. “To put this […]

  • Cannabis Sales Outpace Those of Viagra, Cialis Combined

    You don’t have to be involved in the cannabis industry to recognize its recent exponential growth.

    As each 420 passes and each year slips by, legalization of cannabis in Colorado has just become a fact.

  • The Green Solution® CBD

    Cannabidiol (CBD), it’s the cannabinoid that’s been causing quite the stir over the last couple months. Ever since the DEA’s classification which would include CBD as a schedule one, and the proceeding approval of the reclassification, this non-psychoactive, pain-relieving, seizure-reducing, cancer-fighting, and non-addictive component, has now been relegated to the realm of heroin and ecstasy.

  • Colorado Legislators Introduce Bill to Protect States’ Rights

    Given the anti-cannabis stance of the Trump administration, it’s not surprising that residents of states that have legalized recreational use are concerned about the future of state legislation. What is surprising are the partnerships that have arisen from this concern. Take for instance Congresswoman Diana DeGette (Democrat of Denver) and Congressman Mike Coffman (Republican of […]

Cannabis’ oldest and most devoted patrons were somewhat overlooked. As […]
