There are other monoecious plants that have two different flowers on the same plant for male and female organs. There are also dioecious plants where the plant only has either male or female organs. Cannabis is one of these plants.

I’ve talked before about the possibility of the marijuana industry overtaking the alcohol industry. I’ve said that it could outpace cigarettes and tobacco, too.

 

But what if I told you that marijuana could also become a replacement for vegetables?

It’s true … but not quite in the way that it sounds. Let me explain.

Why pro athletes are entering the cannabis game

This year, NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana made news by investing in Caliva, a large California weed operator. He’s not the only sports name to appear on the cannabis radar.
