Dab into Business!

How did you get started; why?

I was ready to change the trajectory of my life. I was beyond bored with corporate, so I started researching how to start my own business. I kept getting signs that I needed a business that ignited a fire and sparked my passion. I knew the universe would guide me….so cannabis it was.

What’s your niche in the cannabis space? Why?

I help women elevate their wellness with cannabis. I connect them to quality flowers, support their well-being, and inspire them to elevate to their highest potential. I feel cannabis has allowed me to be more comfortable on my healing journey, and as a healer, I wanted to remove the stigma of cannabis use for other women.

Founder and CEO Tracey Schultz is an African-American woman and an advocate for cannabis. She adds a unique perspective to the industry because she uses cannabis to manage her multiple sclerosis symptoms. Queen Tracey is determined to show up in the industry as her best self, dedicated to total well-being with two princesses as her motivation.

Did you face any legal or criminal barriers to cannabis entry? If so, how did you overcome the barriers?

No

What are some talents, skills, experience, and knowledge you picked up while in cannabis?

Every day I’m learning a new way of doing things in the marketplace. I’m a business processor analyst, so I’m curious about how the industry works. I research, question, and analyze the corporate setup and the laws in which they can operate as a business. I think it’s important to know the laws. When you know how it works then, you learn how to move properly.

What tech tools did you use to start your brand?

Social media- google research, YouTube.

How do you stand out from other brands within your target population?

Actually, I’m still working on that. My focus is connecting to the women and not solely selling to women. I want to educate about the benefits cannabis can provide to those wanting holistic relief to their health issues.

Tell us about your top-selling, promotional, or new product or service.

Luxury essential care rolling trays and grinders.

Puffn Pretty's purpose is to support and help change the stigmas around women who smoke weed. They want women who smoke to feel comfortable and confident in their decision and free from judgment's stigma.

Pass it Around!

What have been some of the highlights of marketing your brand? Example.

Meeting like-minded beings

What have been some of the challenges you have faced with marketing your brand? Example.

The “machine.” Nikki Minaj has a verse in her song “seeing green” that goes like…” no one bitch could be my oops that shit offends me; it’s the corporate giants and machine that went against me. I felt her on that. Algorithms and corporate policies have been brutal. On top of that, I also get in my own way.

What’s your silver lining to challenges?

The caves in which we fear to enter holds the very treasure we seek to find…..and so I keep going.

What are some best practices for advertising your brand?

Networking

What are some best practices for growing your audience on social media?

Consistent posting and replying back to people in the comments

What’s some advice you have for folks that want to enter the space?

Research the industry and network with people in the industry. Balance is key

The online weed dispensary’s return policy will depend on their specific guidelines and what they offer for refunds.

This can be done by checking out what different dispensaries have on their site. Likewise, by asking people who have purchased cannabis online before which sites they use. This way, one can figure out what type of weed dispensary they want before starting shopping. We recommend Be Pain Free Global as a trustworthy place to start.

Cannabisartguild.org teamed up with Street Artist RonX111 and world-class animator Destrola. As a result, they will auction off a special Non-Fungible Token that will benefit Humboldt Grace’s Fire Recovery Project.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

The team of RonX111 with the actual originals, and then Destrola, who is the animation artist, are taking the cannabis community to a whole new level.

Australian Street Artist RonX111

RonX111 is an activist artist born in Australia, focusing on bringing balance and preserving the things he loves, from family to nature. In addition, one of his many talents is channeling his emotions and sharing them with the world through his art.

World-Class Animator Destrola

Destrola’s evolution to reinvent himself led him to realize he had a knack for understanding expression. Afterward, he used his skills to influence perceptions.

What are NFTs, and Why Should They Matter to Art?

Non-fungible tokens are a new digital asset. They are distinct because each token is unique and provides its individualized attributes. NFTs allow for the trading and selling products that cannot be replicated, like art or collectibles.

The idea behind these tokens is that NFTs can trade like stocks, but they also provide the same kind of transparency you would expect from physical objects.

The technology could benefit both artists and investors in the art market by creating more transparency in pricing, ownership, condition, provenance, and authenticity.

Australian Street Artist RonX111 explains NFTs

How Artists can Sell Art Online with Blockchain

With the use of blockchain, artists can issue digital art and sell it online.

Blockchain uses cryptography to store and transfer data while making sure that the owner is the rightful owner. Rather, artists can safely sell their artwork without worrying about someone stealing it or copying it.

Blockchain also ensures transparency for both the artist and buyer. Hence, buyers can be sure that they are getting what they paid for – a genuine piece of artwork from an established artist with a verified identity.

Outdoor Cannabis Growing Tips for Beginners

First Published on WEEDSPEEK.COM

Many factors go into growing outdoor cannabis. The climate, the amount of space you have, the type of soil you use, and the time of year are all considered before planting your first seed. 

However, it can be gratifying if you do your research and follow these tips!

What is Outdoor Cannabis Growing?

Outdoor cannabis growing is planting cannabis in the open air, as opposed to within a greenhouse. This kind of cannabis growing is often practiced in rural settings, often on farms with significant land holdings.

It’s a popular method because it offers many advantages that indoor growing cannot provide. One is the superior quality of the cannabis plant from increased exposure to natural sunlight and elements such as wind and rain.

The Benefits of Outdoor Cannabis Growing

Outdoor cannabis growing gives you access to better sunlight which helps produce more potent buds with less THC. The plants grow healthier and more robust and require fewer resources like water, soil, and pesticides.

Here are some other benefits to outdoor cannabis growing:

  • You can grow different plants in conjunction with their marijuana plants, such as vegetables or fruits.
  • Reduces the use of artificial lighting, saving on electricity consumption.

Outdoor Cannabis Growing Tips for Beginners

This section doesn’t teach the reader how to grow cannabis, but it provides a list of essential considerations before starting outdoor cannabis.

Selecting a Plant Variety

When choosing a cannabis plant variety, it is essential to consider the climate and the size of the grow space.

When choosing a cannabis plant variety, it is crucial to consider the climate and the size of the grow space. Different plants thrive in different environments, and other types of cannabis plants have varying space needs. For example, Sativas are better suited for tropical climates but require more space than Indicas.

Selecting a Location to Grow

  • Assess the area you have available to grow in. If it doesn’t have enough sun, think about bringing artificial light to the space or selecting another location.
  • Don’t plant near trees or other tall plants – they might shade your plants and stop the sunlight they need to grow well.
  • Ensure there are no power lines in your plan for where you might want to grow because they can interfere with the growth of cannabis plants.
  • If you’re growing pot outside, make sure that it doesn’t get too windy or hot. Too much wind can dry out your plants, and too much heat will end up harming them by slowing their growth rates down considerably.

Preparing the Soil for Growing Cannabis Plants

It is essential to prepare the soil before you plant your cannabis. Cannabis needs a lot of good, nutritious soil to grow and thrive. So you need to make sure that your soil doesn’t contain any impurities such as fertilizers or pesticides. 

You should also avoid heavy clay soil because it will not drain well and will be more difficult for the roots to grow. There are many ways for preparing the soil before planting cannabis, but here are some popular methods:

  • Tilling: This means turning over the top layer of dirt which helps break up the clumps in the soil and exposes weed seeds or roots that may have been missed during tilling by hand or tilling machine.
  • Composting: This is an excellent way to enrich your garden’s soils with nutrients from organic

Materials Needed for Outdoor Cannabis Growing

Cannabis plants need more than just sunlight; they need warmth and water. A green thumb is the most essential ingredient for any outdoor cannabis grower. Patience is also necessary because it can take up to 6 months for an outdoor plant to flower.

So prepare yourself for a wait time!

Common Challenges in Outdoor Cannabis Growing

There are many challenges to growing it outdoors to produce a more considerable amount of cannabis. For example, when growing outdoors, there is a risk that storms or insects will eliminate plants.

Another challenge is that outdoor plants are more susceptible to outdoor pollution, leading to growers not achieving the desired high quality of cannabis.

Lastly, it is difficult to maintain the necessary humidity levels for plants in an outdoor environment.

Security for Outdoor Cannabis Growing

Even if you can grow cannabis outside your area, it’s a good idea to take precautions so people can’t see it from the street. And, it is often law mandated. You can also grow your cannabis plants with other plants (like tomatoes or roses) to help them go unnoticed.

Cannabis can get pretty tall, so you’ll need to use training techniques to keep your plants shorter. If they’re too high, it’s easy for birds to reach them for a treat!

Take Away

Like humans, the plants will need plenty of heat, water, and light to thrive. Out of the many things that you need to know about outdoor cannabis grow, we hope this article has helped you with your journey!

#Relevnt | An Interview with Wendy Love Edge of The Wendy Love Edge Show

In this week’s podcast, we had the honor to interview Wendy Love Edge of Arkansas-based The Wendy Love Edge Show. We talked about sponsorship expectations, marketing, and branding in the cannabis industry and how her health journey led her to cannabis.

Let’s Get Lifted!

Drops or Salve; Why?

Both! And together. The entourage effect is always best! Bombard the ECS with different routes of administration and cannabinoids.

How did you get started; why?

My health journey brought me to cannabis. Once I realized that cannabis saved my life, the passion for talking about the plant and my health journey was overwhelming.

I started by creating a nonprofit to educate people about proper health and wellness and improve access to cannabis and other alternative health methods. We did this for six years, closing in 2021 due to the pandemic.

I have continued to create my show, The Wendy Love Edge Show, and I am now building the Wendy Love Edge Brand.

What’s your niche in the cannabis space? Why?

Healer, Educator, and Support to Patients. I think my passion for the plant, coupled with my health journey, has created a space for me. Or maybe I made it by marrying these things authentically.

What is Cannabis-Based Art?

Cannabis-based art is a type of fine art that utilizes the cannabis plant and its extracts for the sole purpose of artistic expression. Even though, it’s been around us for centuries, cannabis-based art has gained notoriety. This is partly due to increased social acceptance in the United States.

Notably, some artists who work with cannabis use the plant in both their process and execution of work. The materials allow artist to create pieces from different facets of cannabis culture, such as music, mental health or how it affects people’s perceptions.

Furthermore, the word “canvas” originates from “cannabis”.

Cannabis Plant Basics

Three different cannabis plants are part of the cannabis family. These plants are hemp, marijuana, and cannabidiol (CBD). These three types of cannabis all come from the same species but have very different uses. Hemp makes products like food, clothes, and even biofuel. Marijuana is used for recreational or medicinal situations. Lastly, CBD oil comes from the hemp plant and is used for medicinal purposes as well.

The most significant difference between these three types of cannabis is their THC content. Hemp has no THC content, while marijuana has high levels (5% to 30%). CBD oil has trace amounts of THC (<0.3%). This makes it legal in many states because it does not meet the criteria for a controlled substance.

Best Ways to Start Growing Cannabis?

If you’re thinking about growing cannabis, you already know that it’s not a quick and easy process. Whether you’re new to this or refreshing your grow game, we have some tips on what we think is the best way to start growing cannabis.

Here are our tips on how to start growing cannabis:

Set up the space where you want to start growing your own cannabis.

To grow plants indoors, you will need a space that is clean, ventilated, odorless. And well-lit. If your home doesn’t have an ideal space, there are plenty of options that will work for growing plants indoors. You can use any room with a window or door that can be opened. 

We recommend using a smaller space or hallway if possible, so it’s easier to control the temperature and humidity levels.

Next, install lights and fans in your chosen space to provide adequate illumination and ventilation. Then, make sure you have power outlets installed so that the lights and fans can be plugged in.

Get some seeds of your favorite strains of cannabis plants.

Choosing the right strain of cannabis plants can be tricky. What’s even more confusing is trying to figure out which ones are the best for beginners. This article will help you get some seeds of your favorite strains to start growing your own plants.

All plants require different levels of care, so it’s essential to find one that suits your wants and needs. If you’re new to growing cannabis, you should look for a plant with low maintenance or easy for beginners. Some strains, like Blue Dream, are good choices because they offer high yields with low care needed. Other popular beginner-friendly strains include Strawberry Cough and Super Lemon Haze.

Make sure the pot has a drainage system.

It is typical for beginners to make the mistake of filling the pot with soil that doesn’t have a drainage system at the bottom. This can lead to over-watering, which is one of the most common reasons for plants dying. Ensure that your pots have an adequate drainage system before filling them up with soil or coco coir.

Place the pot in a sunny location.

Choosing an area where the pot will have plenty of sunlight, good airflow, and room to grow is essential. Ideally, the pot should be placed in a sunny window that gets a lot of natural light. If your windows don’t get a lot of natural light, you can use grow lights to simulate sunlight.

The pot should not be placed near any drafts or vents from the heater or air conditioner because it will dry out the plant and not thrive. It is also best if there are no windows nearby because this will cause too much direct sunlight, which could cause scorching of the plant.

Watch over your plants daily.

Plants need water just like humans. The only difference is that plants cannot ask for help, so it is essential to watch over them daily.

Watch over cannabis plants daily just like you would any other plant. If the soil has dried out, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. It is also essential to trim leaves and remove dead leaves and flowers so that mold will not grow on them.

Cannabis Seeds – Everything You Need to Know

First Published on WEEDSPEEK.COM

This article will give you all the information you need to know about cannabis seeds, whether a beginner or an expert. Learn about what they are, how to determine the quality and more.

But first, let’s discuss what a cannabis seed becomes.

What is A Cannabis Plant, Anyway?

The cannabis plant is a species of the Cannabaceae family, which includes both hemp and marijuana. Cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant contain different compounds. The most abundant cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and it has psychoactive effects on humans.

What are Cannabis Seeds?

Cannabis is a plant that produces cannabis seeds. The seeds grow and harvest into marijuana and hemp plants.

Your cannabis seeds are fully grown and protected by an outer shell. Once they successfully germinate, or if the root breaks through the seed, they are ready to plant and grow.

They come in different forms, including regular, feminized & auto-flowering. Home growers of cannabis often choose to grow feminized seeds to ensure that the grown plant will be a healthy female.

Types of Cannabis Seeds

There are three types of cannabis seeds-auto flowering, photoperiod, and auto-flowering. The auto-flowering variety will flower according to its age rather than light cycles, whereas photoperiod cannabis plants require the change in light processes to trigger flowering. 

Autoflowering cannabis plants will flower regardless of light cycles – but they take much longer to reach maturity than photoperiod plants. It takes longer because they don’t adjust their growth according to changing lengths of day or night as photoperiod plants do.

What Factors Determine the Quality of a Cannabis Seed?

Cannabis seeds are the precursors for the weed that is grown. Categorized seeds go into different grades that depend on the quality of marijuana seeds. Factors that determine the quality of the seed include potency, flavor, and size.

Potency: The potency of the weed is determined by its THC content, which is measured in percentage (%). Marijuana with higher THC content is considered to be more potent than marijuana with lower THC content.

Flavor: The flavor of cannabis depends on its terpenes profile, determined by plant genetics and environmental factors like soil type, soil nutrients, sunlight intensity, and temperatures during the flowering period.

Size: Cannabis plants typically grow to around 3-4 feet in height, but some strains can grow up to 10 feet or more depending on their genetics and what you’ve been feeding the plant.

Anatomy of a Cannabis Seed

The anatomy of cannabis seed is a complex system responsible for regulating the plant’s growth. It starts with a few cells fertilized by male pollen and grows into a tiny, round embryo.

The embryo then sends out a long taproot to find soil and water and multiplies to seedlings. The root end of the seedling will then become anchored in the ground while the shoot end continues to grow upwards, reaching for sunlight.

What is Seedless Cannabis?

Cannabis plants are classified as male or female. Male cannabis plants produce pollen that fertilizes female cannabis plants, making the “seeds” from which new cannabis plants can grow.

An unfertilized female plant produces seedless cannabis. Unfertilized female plants mean that they will not pollinate and will not develop seeds.

There are two ways to do this: the first is to select a specific plant for breeding and use a hormone treatment on it. The other is to pollinate a male plant with a broader range of genes by taking pollen from one male plant and applying it to another female plant’s stamen. 

The latter method produces less uniformity in cannabinoids content but has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficacy and low production cost.

How do Cannabis Plants Reproduce?

There are three parts to the cannabis plant reproductive system: the male, female, and hermaphrodites. For a cannabis plant to reproduce, it needs at least one of each.

At the most basic level, when male pollen fertilizes a female flower’s ovule (or egg), this is when reproduction begins. Pollen and ova, in this case, do not come in contact with each other until the flower’s stigma and stamens open up. The process takes about 2-3 weeks after they’ve pollinated.

The fertilized flowers then produce seeds that will grow into new plants in about 3-4 weeks. Cannabis seeds will either need to be stored in cold storage (such as a refrigerator) or planted right away if the climate is warm enough for growth.

What is the Best Way to Store Cannabis Seeds?

Cannabis seed storage is a broad topic with many methods. Some people store them in coolers, jars, or ziplock bags. Some people also prefer to keep them in the freezer.

Here are some tips for storing cannabis seeds:

  • Store them in a dry, cool place like a refrigerator or freezer.
  • Keep them away from light to prevent the degradation of the THC-producing compounds in the seeds.
  • Protect them from moisture and heat by using an airtight container.
  • The best option is to store the seeds in vacuum-sealed containers with oxygen absorbers to prevent any deterioration in the quality and potency of the seeds.

5 Innovations In Cannabis Technology That Could Reshape The Industry

First Published on WEEDSPEEK.COM

Cannabis is not only the fastest growing industry, but it is also one of the most innovative spaces of our time. Every day new products and services are popping up. So companies are always looking for creative ways to stand out in the cannabis industry.

With that and the recent push toward global legalization, the worlds of technology and cannabis are colliding head-on. Both fields are helping to improve virtually every aspect of the cannabis industry, from growing to cultivation and regulation.

And with good reason. The cannabis industry is brimming with a $43 billion market by 2025. Moreover, technology has the power to change how people consume cannabis, how they interact with dispensaries, and how they view cannabis. 

Keep reading to find out about five innovations in technology that could radically reshape the cannabis industry.

Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Cannabis Technology

Cannabis consumption is something that varies drastically from one person to another. Variations are due to two reasons. 

First, individuals have different biochemical profiles that are unique to their genetics, lifestyle, and environment. Plus, cannabis strains are essentially different varieties of the same plant. Some have more CBD, THC, or other chemicals.

Secondary factors could also affect how cannabis affects someone’s body, such as:

  • The amount of cannabis you’re consuming
  • How often you’re using it
  • What other medications you’re taking

Because of this, A.I. machine learning technology allows cannabis companies to gather an extensive amount of data. This information can give insight into what combination of ingredients consumers want, including how often they want it.

Having a quality customer experience is essential, and it’s no different for cannabis brands. A.I. can help companies predict changing trends so they can offer their consumers the best possible experience.

Seed-to Sale Inventory Tracking Technology

One of the most significant benefits of legal cannabis sales is that consumers can buy quality products. Likewise, customers should have trust in what they’re consuming. Therefore, increasing loyal cannabis consumers serve manufacturers, dispensary owners, and everyone connected to the cannabis marketplace.

In comes inventory tracking technology. This innovation does for the cannabis industry just as the name says – track inventory. It helps companies cut down on theft, comply with state regulations, and increase their margins. Accordingly, companies can quickly identify discrepancies in their inventory. And, they can see where their product is coming from and where it is going. 

Most important, inventory tracking technology is a proven success for cannabis companies that comply with state laws. Furthermore, it allows businesses to improve their customer service by knowing which products they stock.

Smart Packaging Technology

In today’s cannabis industry, embedded or smart technology gives businesses a range of functionality. A product’s package is just a critical as its contents. Like phones and T.V.’s, packaging can be innovative.

Smart packaging technology uses the internet to provide consumers unique content or value-added digital experiences. According to research from Smithers Pira in “The Future of Active & Intelligent Packaging,” the Smart packaging market is projected to increase an annual average rate of 5.9%, thereby reaching $7.56 billion by 2023.

Q.R. codes and NFC tags feasibly combine into packaging fit for pharmacy shelves. Combining the two allows consumers to scan a code with their phones and get information like potency, dosage, and lab results.

In addition, NFC tags are programmable to show opened or altered products. Most important, they can verify the authenticity of a product, which is a critical when the illicit market makes thousands of counterfeit items every year.

Virtual Reality Cannabis Technology

Cannabis companies have been making use of virtual reality technology to offer customers an immersive experience. With the help of V.R., people can take virtual tours inside a cannabis shop and view cannabis being grown without leaving home.

By using a digital 3D scanning process, V.R. can create a strain library, scientific lab data and user reviews for customers to make educated decisions about their purchases. All without going to a physical dispensary.

Looking ahead at cannabis technology, V.R. will play a significant role in shaping cannabis consumption. V.R. is on target to define our cannabis experiences from facilities to modernizing how we use it.

In fact, MMJ patients can look forward to extended comfort with e-commerce and V.R. dispensaries.

Robot Technology

The world of manufacturing is changing significantly. Robots now handle many of the tasks that humans have done for years. It is only at the early stages of making an impact in the cannabis market. Thereby, it could provide many opportunities.

Robot technology is used for indoor or outdoor operations to harvest and help process products from seed to sale—for example, cultivation, harvesting, or even in laboratory applications for refining oil.

Israel-based company Seedo, for instance, started selling mini fridge-sized cannabis farms for personal use. The technology offered computerized systems and climate control for home-based cannabis growing.

Seedo promised controlled conditioned cannabis ‘from seed to flower’ without leaving your home. Now, they aim to take a step further with what Seedo calls the ‘world’s first automated cannabis farm, using not only A.I.-based technology but also robotic arms.

In The End

Regardless if you’re already in the cannabis industry or are just interested in learning more about it, there will be more to see how cannabis technology reshapes the way we enjoy the plant.
