  • Merry Happy Joy to You!

    Christmas falls on a Monday this year, and you know what that means…a three-day weekend! Maybe you’ll celebrate on Sunday, maybe you’ll get your festivities wrapped up early Monday, or maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas at all.

  • The Ballad of Alexis Bortell

    Imagine you live in Texas. Now imagine you’re a little kid, about nine years old, and you’ve been having severe epileptic seizures since you were seven.

  • Around the World with Cannabis

    It’s time for another look at cannabis around the world with The Green Solution®. In the past several months, we’ve visited Uruguay, Japan, Portugal, and Jamaica, and we’ve found that when it comes to legal cannabis, Colorado is the place to be. But today we ask, “what’s up with Iceland?” Is cannabis legal there? In […]

  • New Survey on Women and Cannabis

    The relationship between women and cannabis is a topic of growing interest for many researchers, journalists, and filmmakers. We’ve written about the subject here, as well as focused on Mary Janes: The Women of Weed, a documentary about the success of women in the cannabis industry. Now that relationship is the subject of a study […]

  • Caviar Cones for the Cannabis Connoisseur

    Maybe you call it Caviar. Maybe you call it Moon Rocks. It’s one of the most potent and decadent cannabis products on the market. One thing’s for certain – if you know it, you love it. And if you don’t, it’s time to learn. What is Caviar? We’re glad you asked. If we’re talking about […]

  • Five Years of Legal Recreational Cannabis in Colorado

    What were you doing five years ago this week? The year was 2012, so you were probably dancing to Gangnam style and waiting for the world to end as the Mayan calendar predicted it would (remember that?). But in the realm of cannabis and Colorado, it’s what Governor Hickenlooper was doing that was truly noteworthy. […]

  • Cannabis Use Up Among Cancer Patients

    Cancer. It’s one of life’s scourges, and most everyone has been touched by it in one way or another. Since the widespread legalization of medical marijuana in the last two decades, more and more cancer patients are finding relief from cannabis. A recent study focused on more than 900 cancer patients being treated at the […]

  • The End of Prohibition

    Happy anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the Constitution! That’s right, this week marks 84 years since the end of the prohibition of liquor. Considering the prevalence of alcohol in our country today, it’s hard to imagine it being illegal everywhere, for everyone. But that’s exactly what happened with the passage of […]

  • Will Denver be Home to the New Amazon HQ2?

    Whether you love them or hate them, Amazon is here to stay.

  • Greetings from Krampus!

    Are you ready for Krampusnacht? Not sure what that is? It’s the night of Krampus! Still confused? Then you’ve come to the right place.

  • Majority of Americans Favor Cannabis Legalization

    A Gallup poll conducted last month confirms what a lot of us have already guessed – support for legalizing cannabis is at an all-time…well…high. The organization has been tracking Americans’ opinions on legalization since 1969 when only 12% supported the idea. By 2001, that had risen to about a third, which still meant the vast […]

  • Around the World with Cannabis

    Once a month or so, we at The Green Solution® turn our attention to the laws governing cannabis in other parts of the world. Previously we’ve looked at Uruguay, Japan, and Portugal. Today our subject is an island nation that’s nearly synonymous with cannabis – Jamaica. First, a little background. Jamaica gained its independence from […]

  • CBD and Sports

    Slowly, and we hope surely, the world is beginning to realize the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD). One of the latest entities to drop the prohibition against CBD is the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), a group created by the International Olympic Committee to promote, coordinate, and monitor the fight against drugs in sports. WADA maintains a list […]

  • Cyber Monday at The Green Solution®

    Cyber Monday. It’s what the Monday after Thanksgiving has been called since way back in 2005 when some enterprising retailers came up with the term.

    Chances are good that if you’re reading this, you enjoy cannabis. And perhaps you enjoy the occasional adult beverage. Have you ever wondered which is worse for your health, booze or cannabis? Earlier this week, Business Insider’s science correspondent looked at several dimensions of health and compared the effects of alcohol and cannabis on each. […]

  • California and Recreational Sales

    Lots of things happened on Election Day 2016, and one of the happier outcomes was the passage of The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Proposition 64) in California, which legalizes sales of recreational cannabis statewide on January 1, 2018. But with less than two months to go, cities are still hashing out (pun intended) the […]

  • Cannabis Art Exhibit in Boulder

    “As an artist, there’s a sweet jump-starting quality to [marijuana] for me. I’ve often felt telepathic and receptive to inexplicable messages my whole life. I can stave those off when I’m not high. When I’m high – well, they come in and there’s less of a veil, so to speak. So if ever I need […]

  • Election 2017: Colorado and Cannabis

    Tuesday, November 7th was Election Day across the country, and three cities – Alamosa, Monte Vista, and Rocky Ford – in southern Colorado voted on allowing cannabis sales.

  • The VA, Veterans, and Cannabis

    In this week leading up to Veteran’s Day, The Green Solution® is thinking about the men and women who serve or have served in the armed forces.

  • How Free is Speech?

    The First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects one of the most fundamental and precious rights of American citizens – the right to free speech. That extends, of course, to freedom of the press. But does it always? That’s the question being debated at Evanston Township High School in Evanston, Illinois after the school […]

  • Veteran’s Day: A Family Story

    Veteran’s Day is a time to honor those who have served in The United States Armed Forces.

When the Iraq War started in 2003, Nick Speidell felt obligated to have a representative of the […]

  • CBD, MMJ, and the NBA

    Al Harrington played 16 seasons with the NBA, but now he’s all about cannabis. The star player estimates that 70% of NBA players, coaches, and owners smoke marijuana, but he maintains he was among the 30% that didn’t – until his botched knee surgery. A friend recommended he try CBD in place of the myriad […]

  • Cold Weather Remedy: NectarBee® Tincture in Your Hot Drink

    Brrrrr. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that it’s cold on a November morning in Denver, but it was warm last week, so cut us some slack for being chilled to the bone today.

  • New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s Battle for Cannabis Justice

    We’ve previously written about New Jersey senator Cory Booker’s introduction of the Marijuana Justice Act of 2017 which seeks to “amend the Controlled Substances Act to provide for a new rule regarding the application of the Act to marijuana, and for other purposes.” Senator Booker reiterated his stance on legalization in a video message played […]
