Connecticut Officials Close to Decision on State-Sponsored Hemp Production

For over two hundred years, farmers in the state of Connecticut legally grew and harvested hemp for use in sails, ropes, and clothing.

That sentiment continued all the way through World War II, when the U.S. government was distributing propaganda films urging farmers to plant hemp crops for the good of the nation.

When the South American nation of Uruguay became the first country to officially legalize marijuana last year, headlines about $1 grams of cannabis made news around the world. As it turns out, $1 per gram is considered to be outrageous in nearby Paraguay, where weed can be had for a mere $0.06/g. You read that right. It comes down to simple economic principles like supply and demand. With a national population of just 6.7 million people, Paraguay is said to be the 2nd largest producer of marijuana in the world, behind only Mexico. Despite the abundance of the chronic cash…

How Much Does Colorado vs. Washington Recreational Marijuana Cost These Days?

Good news for the cannabis enthusiast: no matter the state, retail marijuana prices are expected to drop in Washington and Colorado throughout the rest of the year. While the black market still poses imminent competition barriers, the wake of 4/20 emphasized the importance of competitive pricing for all recreational stores.

As expected, more retail stores spike competition in the market and force store owners to scale pricing. But what does retail marijuana actually cost…

Seven Amazing Uses Of Hemp

How did a plant that is so easily cultivated with so many uses since it was first grown in China around 6,000 BC become illegal? Even the original Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. Hemp fiber was used for sails and ropes for sea-going vessels during the 17th and 18th Centuries. Up until the early 20th Century, removing hemp fiber by hand was too tedious and slow for hemp to compete with other industries propelled by the burgeoning machine age. But as WWI broke out, a German immigrant in California, George Schlichten, invented and successfully tested the first…
