Where to Buy Weed Near Me: Top 5 Online Vendors in 2021

weed

As marijuana legalization has spread throughout the U.S., obtaining weed has never felt more normal.

However, it’s not as normal as traditional goods and commodities. After all, marijuana is still illegal on a federal level and in many states.

On top of that, with the cannabis industry being so infantile, regulations have been notoriously confusing, subject to constant change, and overwhelming to the regular consumer.

This post will bring you some clarity on the best ways to purchase legal weed, why you should never choose the black market, and introduce you to a viable (and still legitimate) alternative for those who don’t have the legal marijuana option.

At Delic Labs, We Have a Dream: A Cannabis Better Future

marijuana leaves

Many people associate cannabis with eco-friendly, counter-cultural movements, but we know the environmental impacts of the cannabis industry are significant. Given the climate crisis, cannabis production companies have a responsibility to ensure future demands of the industry are met in an environmentally sustainable way. We also know that as the world is seeing the impacts of climate change, consumers are changing their spending habits 1. As a result, companies also have the financial incentive to seriously consider implementing more environmental policies, to align their interests with the interests of consumers. Unfortunately, restrictions on cannabis research and the legal industry create barriers to implementing many environmentally friendly alternatives in production.

3 Great Reasons to Buy Innovative Industrial Properties

This medical marijuana landlord has a strong record and a lot of room to roam.

Innovative Industrial Properties ( IIPR -2.55% ) is a pot stock, but it doesn't sell any legal cannabis itself. Instead, this real estate investment trust (REIT) provides the medical marijuana industry with operating facilities and scarce capital.

The business model here revolves centers on buying production facilities and then leasing them to the growers, providing capital where traditional lenders won't typically venture. It's worked well. For example, $2,500 invested in IIPR on Nov. 1, 2019, would be worth about $8,500 now, and that's not too shabby. But it's also easy to argue there's much more to come. Here are three great reasons to buy IIPR.

Will Hempcrete Ever Catch On?

It’s a dream green building material. Why aren’t farmers interested?

Hemp mixed with a lime binder makes green builders drool. Called hempcrete, this insulation material resists mold, fire and pests. It lasts forever (or close enough). It absorbs carbon. It’s commonly used in construction in Europe and Canada. With sustainable building materials worth billions of dollars, it has the potential to take off here, too.

But few farmers in the US grow hemp for that purpose. They grow hemp for CBD, for bioplastics, for food and for mulch. They’ll grow hemp for cat litter. But not for hempcrete, which uses a different crop, known as fiber, from the more popular CBD cannabinoid variety that yields CBD. There’s no market to speak of for hempcrete, and therein lies a dilemma.

A DVM’s Guide To Cannabinoid Supplements

Veterinarians are free to discuss the subject with clients barring any restrictions. However, be careful with therapeutic claims.

The veterinary and pet owner communities’ growing interest in cannabinoids builds upon thousands of years of cannabis cultivation and medical applications. Cannabinoids have illustrated their substantial potential to improve the health and well-being of pets and people, but the use of cannabinoid products must be done safely and effectively. To do so, a veterinarian must examine the endocannabinoid system, the many cannabinoids, the available and impending products, the implications for their use, the potential side effects, the regulatory issues, and the scientific literature. This article is intended as a primer for veterinarians.

Communication is important in every relationship, especially between doctors and patients. And a new survey suggests that the stigma that has long kept cannabis a dirty secret in the exam room may finally be disappearing.   

The survey of 445 healthcare providers who treat chronic pain found that 72% of them have patients who requested or asked about medical cannabis in the last 30 days. Patients asked about cannabis far more often than other alternative pain treatments, such as acupuncture (37%), physical therapy (13%) and massage (10%).
