It’s an industry worth billions, and as a movement it’s global.” As cannabis normalizes it’s easy to forget about the days when cannabis enthusiasts were outsiders. We’ve come a long way as a culture, movement, and industry. Some, including myself, can’t remember when popular strains didn’t exist.

Harmful pesticides and other unsafe farming techniques…
