From dispensaries to producing concentrates, even farming, is a lucrative business in cannabis. As producers, we here at Lifted pride ourselves in not only making hand-crafted artisan candies, but also being educated and articulate in our field. Education is key. Understanding is vital. \n The cannabis industry demands extreme dedication. Whether your goal is cutting edge concentrates or unheard of genetics, to keep your thumb on the pulse of the industry you must persevere the constant chaos. As change is the only constant in cannabis. \n Hopeful change has come to our politics, or politricks, as we say. Lawmakers are lifting the prohibition and decriminalization is rapidly expanding. How has this change come,you may ask. For years, potheads and stoners have “fought The Man” by continuing to grow, smoke, and share marijuana. The essence behind it all is perseverance. The Ace in the Hole is word of mouth and spreading accurate information. \n Groups like NORML , NCIA , and ASA , have helped spread awareness and advocate for the benefits of using marijuana on a national level. Groups like Weedblog , WomenGrow , and Oregon Sungrown help us Oregonians. The Lifted ladies often join WomenGrow , for their events in Oregon, that work as a Speakeasy for ganjapranuers. The cannabis community can join together to share personal stories, build ideas for drug reform, and collaborate in business. We have strong faith in individuals making great change. Check out the story behind Oregon’s legalization Mastermind, Travis Maurer. \n We encourage everyone to take part in local conferences and seminars like those hosted by WomenGrow. Keep in touch with our blog, follow WeedBlog, WomenGrow’s social media, or the website of the Oregon SunGrown to stay updated on conferences, seminars, and meetings near you! And, just so you know, not all of these opportunities cost hundreds of dollars! So get out there and network! \n Oh, and we do practice what we preach! The Lifted crew will be attending the Cannabis Creative Conference in Portland, Oregon, on July 29th and 30th, 2015. Come and peep game with us!
