No longer does consuming edibles have to include a terrible tasting product or end in a bad experience.  With old school edibles (why was it always brownies?) we did not know what to expect in regards to the potency of the product, what strain was in it to know what to effects to expect, and it was probably not well known many years ago that the liver processes the plant differently when ingested than it does when smoking it.

The Farm Act of 2018 Legalized Hemp

The Nest - Michigan’s First Cannabis Business Incubator

The cannabis business, in particular, is hard to navigate.  Without help from someone who has experience navigating through paperwork, regulations, and laws that are not yet fully formed, a startup may flounder and fail even before it begins.  The cannabis industry is already big in Michigan and will continue to get bigger. The promise of a strong cannabis industry is beginning to lure some larger already established companies into the area.  It may be hard to compete with these larger, well-funded businesses. Do not let that stand in the way of building your dream of a thriving cannabis business. The Nest is available to help you #hatchaplan.

Sh!t - My Son Was Caught Smoking Weed

The fact that he was doing something illegal in a place where he could be caught is probably what pissed me off the most.  It was not so much that he was doing something illegal that made me mad, but where he was doing it. Does that make me a bad parent or even a bad adult?
