Why Being An Advocate Matters In The Cannabis Industry

I didn’t care about politics. I didn’t feel a need to get involved with the problems of the world. Afterall, weren’t my own problems enough?

10 Best Practices for Commercial Cannabis Cultivators in 2020

Guest article by Eric Rosen, Dark Heart Nursery

Now, with legalization and the proliferation of clones, seedlings and teens available at scale via commercial cannabis nurseries, every cultivator should be objective from a business perspective about why they continue to clone in-house and not maximize profitability from a real estate perspective. Simply put, every square foot dedicated to flowering cannabis plants yields more dollars annually than the same square foot that is being squandered on a cannabis plant in a vegetative state.  Read More »10 Best Practices for Commercial Cannabis Cultivators in 2020

The world came to a standstill when COVID-19 came about, but that doesn’t mean cannabis stood still. As a medicinal and agricultural product, cannabis was deemed essential.
