The celebrity-owned cannabis brands to know in 2022

gorgeous woman

From the worlds of sports, music, and entertainment.

Plenty of celebrities have dipped their toes in the cannabis industry. Usually, they'll do a licensing deal that allows cannabis brands to make a product and use that celeb's name, image, and likeness for marketing. Because of this, you will often see limited-edition drops where they release a product once — then you never see it again.

To spare you the heartbreak of a limited-edition drop, consider some celebrity cannabis brands with products you can try again and again.

The top reason people are still buying illegal weed: survey

cannabis

Creating a new legal market will take time to build and to earn the trust of new shoppers.

Legal cannabis is becoming more and more accessible. Still, in countries such as the U.S. and Canada, where there are legal markets in place, black market marijuana sales remain consistent.

According to a new survey, the largest determining factor is price.

The survey, conducted between 2019 and 2020 and published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, polled 12,000 cannabis users in Canada and the U.S. and found that price outranked convenience, which is the second main reason people continue to opt for illegal weed.

The reasons behind why consumers still shop the illicit market was dependent on the year and the country.

Mayim Bialik

 

Mayim Bialik has had an uphill battle with the Jeopardy! fans. This week, she and the writers are in hot water over a marijuana joke. Let us learn what is going on.

 

 

An off-color joke

When is it appropriate to discuss your weed usage at work?

people at work

Even if it’s legal in your state, marijuana is still considered a dangerous drug on a federal level. So if you feel like speaking your truth, you have the right to do so, but there may be consequences.

With marijuana legalization spreading, talking about getting high has become more commonplace than taboo in many circles. When it comes to water cooler conversation at work, however, cannabis conversations are still confusing to navigate.

“All of a sudden, I start seeing all of my money flying away, and my house is flying away and my career is gone away."

Will Smith in an interview with David Letterman confessed to having a premonition that his career would implode while tripping on ayahuasca.

Ayahuasca is a brew made from the leaves of the Psychotria viridis shrub and the stalks of the Banisteriopsis caapi vine, according to HealthLine.

A new book explores how weed can help and hinder the creative process

Jordana Wright had a problem.

While working on her second book, Cannabis for Creatives: How 32 Artists Enhance and Sustain Inspiration, her source material was piling up.

She had interviewed a wide range of artists about how cannabis factors into their creative processes, delved deeply into the science behind creativity and explored how cannabis and the brain interact. But she was struggling to figure out how to piece it all together.

So she smoked a joint.

Pigeon seen smuggling cannabis into Peruvian prison

The pigeon has been sent to an animal shelter to help it “resocialize” and leave behind its delivery days.

The noble, albeit now often-maligned, pigeon has been used as a message carrier during chariot races to times of war. That may be why someone in Peru tried using the bird’s impressive homing abilities to fly weed into a prison.

Perhaps parched, the cannabis-carrying bird was spotted this week when it touched down on the grounds of the Huancayo Penitentiary near the administrative building to drink some water from a puddle there.
