We live in a unique and exciting era in which cannabis is no longer something you should be ashamed of. In fact, there are plenty of people becoming involved with the cannabis industry who don't even use cannabis. If you'd like to know more about what is going on in the cannabis scene, there are many ways to scope it out without lighting up. Here are a few ideas on how to get involved:
1. Scope the scene online.
2. Attend events.
There are conventions and events all over the country involving the marijuana industry. We recently attended the New England Cannabis Convention in Boston, but there are many others. At NECANN, we met tons of people involved in every corner of the market, from dispensaries to legal counsel to growers to people involved in making CBD products.
3. Give CBD a chance.
If you're interested in the marijuana market, but are nervous about actually getting high, try out CBD. It's not psychoactive, but it contains the healing properties associated with cannabis. We recommend our client Healing Harbors for high quality CBD products.
4. Find local activist groups to join.
There are groups across the country working to spread awareness about the marijuana industry. We think its important to be a member of organizations that are working towards cannabis education and the growth of the industry. We are proud to be members of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Find your local, regional or national group and see if you'd like to join them.
5. Keep yourself informed.
Make sure to stay up to date on the latest news. If you feel comfortable, speak out about what you've learned and inform others too.
