By MK Thom on Jul 12, 2021 1:26:00 PM

Covid 19 and the MJ Industry - Here & Nationally

By MK Thom on Jun 22, 2021 11:54:00 AM

Across the country and the world, everyone felt the pressure from Covid 19. The massive effort to save lives by slowing the spread of the virus changed how we lived, worked and socialized - the "new normal".  Like most companies, 2020 brought about a strange, uncertain world. But nevertheless, there was a massive increase in cannabis sales.  Several states designated cannabis dispensaries as “essential” businesses. The industry was praised for efforts to fight the spread of Covid 19, earning support from Congress. And the virus brought about changes in how marijuana-based companies did business.

With so much uncertainty for businesses in the year 2020, what a relief it was to see the cannabis industry growing!

Marijuana and Meditation

By MK Thom on Jun 18, 2021 11:45:54 AM

Meditation is awesome. If you haven't tried it - you really should!  Fortunately, more and more people are learning about the benefits of regular practice, taking time to get quiet and relax the mind. The practice has tripled among adults in recent years. And there’s data to show its effectiveness in supporting both mental and physical health. If you love cannabis, chances are good that you’ll also love meditation. Marijuana and meditation are a natural combination, with the benefits of each enhancing the other.


It is all too easy to lose yourself in the world’s fast pace. Legitimate preoccupations that derive from making a living and caring for families can put our minds out on a limb. You can feel like you’re balancing in a precarious state where it’s hard to think, concentrate, or truly perceive yourself and what will bring you happiness. Negative thinking and overthinking can be pits that we fall into all too easily. Having a phone with you every minute, constantly reminding you of what needs to get done or of stressful current events can really derail us in our quest for inner peace.

Meditation is a way to slow down, quiet the mind and allow yourself to find an inner fount of silence. It’s a way to reintroduce yourself to your essential self. This reconnection can be a wellspring of joy and energy, inspiring better relationships and more creativity. The physical and mental benefits of mindfulness have been sung from our culture’s rooftops – and it sounds like the balm that can soothe the nation’s wounds. But it is only by setting aside cultural demands and the imperatives of modern life that we can realize the full benefits of meditation.

Movements in Missouri Marijuana

By MK Thom on May 20, 2021 5:58:00 PM

Medical marijuana was approved by the state’s voters back in 2018. Last year, there was an effort to again change Missouri’s state constitution to allow for the use of recreational marijuana, which would have mirrored the push for medical marijuana. Volunteers had begun gathering the signatures needed to bring the measure to the ballot - but then Covid 19 shut down the efforts.

By MK Thom on May 18, 2021 3:30:00 PM

Continued from our previous post 'Interview With a Long-Time User Part 1', here is the conclusion to the interview from a potential MMJ user to a three-decade-plus user ...

  • The next question is -- Do a lot of people get obsessed about something like running or learning to play the piano?

Everybody is different. I would say it's far more likely that people would get obsessive about running or playing piano or something like that once they start doing marijuana. You will find that it is conducive to doing a variety of different things. Everybody's body reacts a little bit differently.

By MK Thom on Apr 28, 2021 3:00:00 PM
