Greenstate: Cannabis socials are the latest way to educate, medicate or exhilarate

Marijuana is recreationally legal in California but still carries an “only for stoners” stigma in some circles. Maybe not for long.On a recent Friday night, Twin Peaks real estate agent Shelly Sutherland invited two dozen friends for a happy hour featuring alcohol-free cocktails laced with pomegranate seeds and cannabis-infused tea — not to get high, but to get highly educated about cannabis and its potential for health, wellness and, yes, even the giggles.

Canna Curious Club: A Look at Raven Grass Design

Canna Curious Club: A Look at Raven Grass Design

 The cannabis market is enormous, and there is no one Cannabis User Model to cater to. It’s such a golden opportunity to let your brand really be a reflection of yourself and what’s important to you, and know that it will attract people who appreciate those things as well.

The only problem for business owners remains finding a place to deposit all that cash.

Pot farmers strive to keep all their crops female through flowering female clones of one plant, called the Mother. And women are moving into the pot business so quickly that they could make it the first billion-dollar industry that isn’t dominated by men.
