Waterbury cannabis business helping people cultivate opportunity

WATERBURY, Vt. (WCAX) -A new initiative is helping members of the BIPOC community become active members of the cannabis industry. Zenbarn Farms is partnering with the community to educate people disproportionately impacted by the drug crisis. The initiative, The Cannabis Equity Fund, is all about education. “When you live it, you don’t always keep the statistics in your head, you just see it happening,” said Marlena Tucker-Fishman. Tucker-Fishman is a co-owner of Zenbarn Farm Cannabis. She, a

CBD Dosage: How Much Should You Take?

When you consume CBD gummies, capsules or softgels, dosage is typically expressed per unit. For example, there may be 50 milligrams of CBD in each individual gummy. These products don’t offer much dosage flexibility since you can’t split up capsules easily. For instance, if one softgel capsule didn’t provide your desired result, you would have to take another full capsule, doubling the total dose. CBD oil, on the other hand, makes it easier, to begin with a small dose. But calculating CBD oil d

How To Use CBD To Help Alleviate Anxiety

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to approve any CBD-based medications for anxiety. However, many studies indicate the substance can be an effective anxiolytic. In 2011, a small trial-tested CBD on participants with generalized social anxiety disorder (SAD) and healthy control patients undergoing a simulated public speaking test (SPST), which is a common anxiety testing method . Compared to a placebo, CBD significantly reduced anxiety and discomfort in the participants with SAD. In

Column: The Olympics shouldn't test for cannabis — much less ban athletes who test positive

I must have been too busy in the winter of 1998 to pay attention to the Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan. I missed the story of the first snowboarder to win a gold medal, and the craziness that ensued after a drug test found a vanishingly small amount of THC in his urine. But Thursday, that snowboarder, Ross Rebagliati of Canada, recounted his strange tale on a podcast called “Great Moments in Weed History,” hosted by cannabis writers David Bienenstock and Abdullah Saeed. It was a timely

Hydrology9 NX : Getting High with a Handheld Vaporizer

Getting high is fun, but can also be both messy, and dangerous AF. Messy, because as anyone who has ever tipped over a bong can attest, the rancid stench of the vile water can permeate any absorbent surfaces such as a couch, chair or bed, and linger for weeks. Dangerous, because the venn diagram of "high" and "600F blowtorch" intersect perfectly with "intensely painful second-degree burns." A newly updated water filter vaporizer solves these issues, as well as being highly portable, with well-

Real estate and towns

Another week, another awesome issue on the best plant in the world. For starters, today we’ve made available for purchase our 2021 database on municipalities that have taken a position on whether to open their borders to cannabis or continue to prohibit commerce. Prohibition makes it harder to study the plant, but since cannabis is such an intersectional plant there are other ways in which it is being measured. This issue is a reflection of that. Private sector and academia partnerships, soc

Q&A: Ex-Lions Calvin Johnson, Rob Sims want their cannabis business to turn a 'stigma' into a solution

The first thing Calvin Johnson and Rob Sims want everyone to know is how serious they are about this. The two former Detroit Lions teammates didn’t get into the cannabis business just to kill time following their playing careers or to cash in on their fame. Together, they started the Primitiv Group — as it states on the company’s website — to “advance the cause of medicinal cannabis by researching the natural health benefits of the plant.”“We can reach everybody,” Johnson said, “who’s trying to

Detroit Lions great Calvin Johnson, ex-teammate Rob Sims launch cannabis product line

Johnson along with former Lions teammate Rob Sims founded the Primitiv Group, whose aim is to “highlight the healing power of the plant

'We view ourselves as boutique cannabis:' NFL Hall of Famer on new biz

Calvin Johnson Jr. dominated the gridiron to become one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history.

Your Guide to the Best Memorial Day Sales Taking Place This Weekend

Memorial Day sales with their discounted mattresses and grills, couches and swimsuits are a staple—somehow—of the holiday that is really about honoring individuals who served in the US Armed Forces. (Really, the explanation is simple: If people get a day off, stores will run sales.) The holiday is lousy with sales, and you may want to take advantage of them to upgrade those sweat-stained sheets or that blender with the frayed cord. You're going to find significant discounts on grills, clothing,
