This is why ancillary marijuana businesses are doing so well-they aren't burdened with all the red tape and high taxes.
Author: Florence J Martin
When starting a business in any industry, having a unique idea that fills an unmet need is crucial to becoming a success.First, you'll need to decide which sector of the marijuana industry to go into. Generally, when someone thinks about types of cannabis businesses, dispensaries and grow operations usually come to mind.Many see huge dispensaries in Colorado, for example, raking in big bucks. But this can actually be the riskiest business area to choose, with the tightest profit margins. As the legal use of marijuana continues to grow across the U.S., the price of weed will continue to go down, leaving those with grow-ops and dispensaries with fewer profits as time goes on. They're also the ones to be hit hardest with a sea of strict rules and regulations. On top of all of that, banks still refuse to work with businesses that grow or distribute marijuana because it is still illegal under federal law.This is sure to change eventually, but for now, you will still need to fundraise enough capital without any loan assistance. How much? Many states require proof of at least $1 million in available cash to obtain a dispensary license. You should also keep in mind that you won't be able to keep your profits safely stored in a bank account. All businesses that directly deal with cannabis are forced to keep their capital in cold hard cash, which is obviously highly inconvenient and dangerous-though some have been getting around this issue using cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to keep their funds more secure.But the cannabis industry is much more than just grow operations and dispensaries. If you're a foodie, perhaps look into making a unique edibles line. There are even people opening up "bud and breakfasts"-cannabis-friendly lodging (some even provide marijuana-infused oil massage-sign me up!).But truly, the least risky kind of cannabis business to start is one that doesn't directly touch the controversial plant at all. According to the Controlled Substances Act, the bulk of the regulations for businesses in the cannabis industry are only applicable to cannabis growers, processors, and sellers. This is why ancillary marijuana businesses are doing so well-they aren't burdened with all the red tape and high taxes. From hydroponics and cultivation products to professional training and education, consultancies, media companies, the plethora of new technologies-the list is endless, and so are the opportunities.
How Lies, Corruption, and Propaganda Kept Cannabis Illegal Jesse Ventura ... 7 Kit O'Connell, “Did Monsanto Really Just Get a Patent for GMO Marijuana?

New York Times Bestselling Author! In this groundbreaking book – for the first time in paperback and fully-updated with all the latest legal information - outspoken freethinker Jesse Ventura lays out his philosophy. Now more than ever before, our country needs full legalization of medical/recreational marijuana and hemp. Seemingly with every day that goes by we find out more positive things about marijuana, a medicinal plant in abundant supply, yet legalization finds stronger resistance from government agencies and big business. Find out why the US government patented CBD and what Big Pharma companies have exclusive rights to create marijuana medication and why the DEA can’t be trusted. Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto calls for an end to the War on Drugs. Legalizing marijuana will serve to rejuvenate our pathetic economy and just might make people a little happier. Ventura’s book will show us all how we can take our country back. “More celebs than ever are jumping on the ‘Legalize’ bandwagon. Why? Because it’s safe now. It won’t impact your career anymore. But Jesse Ventura has been a solid proponent of legal cannabis for decades. In Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto, he lays out the good sense of legalization, as well as the sheer insanity of prohibition. As a proud American, he pulls no punches calling out the political elite. - Dan Skye, High Times editor-in-chief “Ventura is ultimately quite convincing about the ineffectuality of the War on Drugs, and on the contradictions and corruptions of the Drug Enforcement Administration, a particular bugbear of his.” - Michael Lindgren, The Washington Post
This is a huge deal, especially considering the industry is still in its infantile stages.
Author: Dr Sandra Carter
Over half of the United States already have legalized cannabis in some form-that's 29 states plus the District of Columbia. Many states have only legalized cannabis for medical use, but that's gradually changing as well. Currently, one in five Americans lives in a state where they can use cannabis recreationally, without a doctor's note.In 2016, marijuana sales in North America grew by a massive 30 percent, and sales are projected to reach $20.2 billion by 2021. This is a huge deal, especially considering the industry is still in its infantile stages. There are still many gaps waiting to be filled by those who are forward-thinking and innovative enough to realize this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity.That said, the path to a successful cannabis business is not a smooth and easy one to navigate-it's full of confusing laws and regulations, steep taxes, and many other unforeseeable roadblocks and hoops to jump through. That's why we asked cannabis industry experts (who already have successful and profitable businesses!) for their top advice on starting a "cannabusiness." Their tips and information will give you a clearer road map and allow you to be more prepared for your exciting journey ahead.

The author of the game-changing Cannabis Health Index returns with a book designed specifically for general readers who want to understand how THC and CBD can benefit them. While CBD is the new buzzword for health and wellness, many researchers and practitioners believe that the symbiotic relationship between THC and CBD, known as the entourage effect, allows for greater therapeutic benefits for patients. Unfortunately, when it comes to optimizing that ratio to a particular health condition, it is often a process of trial and error for medical patients. Your Cannabis CBD:THC Ratio provides detailed information on how to find the best ratios of CBD:THC and covers the preferred ratios of these two primary cannabinoids for ten prevalent medical conditions —including cancer, chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and many others. Blesching’s unique chemotype-based system takes into account CBD:THC ratios, the various forms of cannabis medicine available to consumers, and the subjective therapeutic dosages, presenting a complete evidence-based methodology. -- Uwe Blesching, PH.D.

It's about finding laughter and joy amid the rubble of disappointment and creating a vision of acceptance and perfect well-being. It's about my partner Holly, and how we built a beach shack in Costa Rica, and how Annie Leibovitz came down to doll us up in palm fronds and shoot us at the height of our earthly ambitions.

If there ever was a time to build an American hemp industry, the time is now. In Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto, former Minnesota Governor teamed up with Jen Hobbs to explain why it’s time to fully legalize cannabis and end the War on Drugs. Through their research, it became clear that hemp needed its own manifesto. Jen Hobbs takes up this torch in American Hemp. December of 2018 marked a largely unprecedented victory for cannabis. The 2018 Farm Bill passed and with it hemp became legal. What the federal government listed for decades as a schedule 1 narcotic was finally classified as an agricultural crop, giving great promise to the rise of a new American hemp industry. Filled with catchall research, American Hemp examines what this new domestic crop can be used for, what makes it a superior product, and what made it illegal in the first place; the book also delves into the many health and medical benefits of the plant. Hobbs weighs in on how hemp can improve existing industries, from farming to energy to 3D printing, plus how it can make a serious impact on climate change by removing toxins from the soil and by decreasing our dependence on plastics and fossil fuels. American Hemp lays out where we are as a nation on expanding this entirely new (yet ancient) domestic industry while optimistically reasoning that by sowing hemp, we can grow a better future and save the planet in the process.

Surrealism has been covered over by the sanitised hand-towel of bourgeois decorum and then relegated to the art gallery as yet another happy-clappy social distraction. Subsequently a journey into revolutionising minds has been reduced to gazing and consuming objects; fit for advertising dross. What has occurred is consumption without reflection. Only by returning back to Breton, Vaches and the original surrealistic impulse can the wider culture be reaffirmed; this philosophy of art calls for an alchemisation of the self: to think higher and thereby emit elevated social values. Eventually this will shift individual as well as collective minds into the Stratos. Thinking higher - means moving firstly entering into nihilism and destroying all current values, before rediscovering the Albedo life stream to then move into the masculine realm of Citrinitas: before dissolving within the Rubedo flow of pure collective consciousness. The book plots a journey within a stream of thinking to dissolve from engaging in robotic herd-speak; to finally entering an elite ambit of reflective consciousness.
