Wayne County farm takes aim at expanding hemp operation, educating community

holding cannabis plant

When brothers Shawn and Josh Cutter proposed growing hemp at their traditional family farm in 2019, their sister and mother weren't convinced it was the right move. 

Their 500-acre farm produced crops like alfalfa, corn and soybeans for decades, so adding a new plant with little knowledge of it was a gamble, but the family was quickly swayed.

At the time, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine had just passed a bill legalizing hemp with low THC (less than 0.3%) — the main psychoactive compound in cannabis — opening a new market in Ohio.

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.

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.

Cannabis company stock prices have taken a nearly year-long hit that some investors might describe as extreme considering the potential for federal marijuana legalization in the foreseeable future. Now, companies in Pennsylvania have more potential bad news coming down the pike from the state's department of health.

Failure to comply with a new order from the state agency could result in suspension or revocation of cannabis operator licenses. Two marijuana producers with a heavy concentration in The Keystone State are Jushi Holdings (OTC: JUSHF), and Trulieve Cannabis (OTC: TCNNF), both of which sell vape products in the state.

Etain is an oasis of calm in midtown Manhattan.

When thinking of weed dispensaries, especially in light of the relatively recent legalization of recreational marijuana in the state of New York, thoughts don't necessarily drift to soothing, spa-like destinations offering the sort of calm that is usually associated with self-care. And, yet, that is exactly what Etain, the only cannabis dispensary in New York that is owned by women, feels like. (In Irish mythology, Etain is a Gallic goddess who represents women in a transformational capacity.)

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.
