Declaration Brewing smells a certain way during happy hour, after the employees of several nearby cannabis businesses get off work. Three of them, old friends from high school, leave their pot posts early one afternoon to share stories before the crowds arrive.
It’s not always easy to split your job before 4 p.m., but since Anthony Karas, Corey Buffkin and Ryan Buffkin all own their respective weed businesses, approval from the boss isn’t required. Karas and the Buffkin brothers have each created award-winning growing operations, expanding their businesses in similar lanes without stepping on each other’s toes.
Not that they’re scared to mix it up.
Although most universities remain tepid about marijuana because it’s still prohibited federally, they’re more than happy to dive into hemp right now. The plant produces the same cannabinoids as marijuana — just at levels deemed acceptable by the federal government — and scientists are excited to learn more about CBD. But their research doesn’t end there, with interest in CBN, CBG and CBC also gaining steam.
Colorado CBD company Panacea Life Sciences recently donated $1.5 million to Colorado State University to create a laboratory that will study hemp and medical applications of cannabinoids, the unique molecules produced in the cannabis plant. To learn more about the program and why Panacea donated the money, we caught up with founder Leslie Buttroff.
You could soon be able to burn legal weed and get a lap dance in the same complex, if a Glendale dispensary’s plans for a social marijuana consumption venue are realized.
Smokin Gun Apothecary, a Western-themed pot shop next to Shotgun Willie’s strip club, hopes to become the first dispensary in the state with a tasting room for social weed consumption, and the owners want it ready by every stoner’s favorite holiday. The store plans to open the social use space, named the Joint, onsite by April 20: 4/20.
If any sector has jumped on the CBD train, it’s the wellness community. CBD skin-care products, pills made for pain and soreness, and oils for anxiety are all readily available, and virtually always in the name of wellness.
Although the Food and Drug Administration still doesn’t want CBD considered an official medication, many users buy and use the hemp extract as part of their own health-care routines. Now, personal trainers, chiropractors and even tai chi instructors are starting to incorporate CBD gel capsules and edible oils into their programs, according to Sue Kartheiser. A personal trainer for nearly two decades, Kartheiser leads a program with Boulder-based Mandara in hopes of teaching other wellness coaches about CBD’s impact on health-focused lifestyles.
Dear Stoner: Has Colorado’s weed bubble popped now that all of these other places allow it? It’s not just a few states anymore.
A lack of things to do besides shop at dispensaries hasn’t exactly hurt pot’s popularity, but offering customers grow tours, building themed-dispensaries or opening a pot lounge next door certainly adds to the fun.
While new social consumption licenses could bring dispensary tasting rooms to Colorado within the next year or so, it will remain challenging to find quick and nearby cannabis activities in the meantime. So we scouted Colorado pot shops, and came up with these eight dispensaries that will enhance your cannabis-buying experience with educational or entertaining options.
Amendment 64, the ballot initiative that voters approved in 2012 to legalize recreational weed in Colorado, says that “marijuana should be regulated in a manner similar to alcohol,” but that hasn’t made the plant equal to alcohol in the eyes of many employers. At companies across Colorado, testing positive for marijuana is still legal grounds for dismissal, even if your employer acknowledges that you weren’t high on the job.
Over seven years after Coloradans legalized marijuana, state lawmakers may finally be ready to address the issue this year. Introduced by Representative Jovan Melton (D- Aurora), House Bill 1089 “prohibits an employer from terminating an employee” for “lawful off-duty activities,” even if those activities are illegal under federal law.
Colorado marijuana dispensaries have set a new sales record for the sixth consecutive year, according to the state Department of Revenue.
Commercial pot sales accounted for just over $141 million in November, state data shows. That was good enough to put 2019’s overall sales total past $1.6 billion, breaking 2018’s record of approximately $1.55 billion…and there’s still one month of sales figures to add to the total.
We’ve reached peak sniffle season in Colorado, when a third of your office mates sound like their sinuses are more clogged than the toilets at a Chipotle. And even though we’re not supposed to, many of us are still smoking cannabis and tobacco during these bouts with the flu, colds and other common contagions.
It’s usually a good idea to take a break from smoking while dealing with throat and respiratory issues, but people aren’t full of good ideas. To protect you and others from hacking germs all over each other during your next session, follow these six rules of cannabis use:
