Vancouver’s 4/20 Marijuana Smoke Fest Sees 64 Taken to Hospital

Category: News | Posted on Wed, April, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Vancouver’s 4/20 marijuana-smoking rally led to hospitalization for 64 revelers Monday, turning a celebratory occasion into a headache for ER workers.
“Sixty-four people in the emergency department is a large number, in an already busy emergency department,” Providence Health Care spokesperson Dave Lefebvre told CBC.
Patients were complaining of nausea, vomiting, palpitations and “a decreased level of consciousness,” Lefebvre said.
Authorities speculate that many revelers were consuming marijuana in edible form and thus unaware of the strengths of the dosages ingested.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson criticized the event as “very disruptive,” adding that “I know there will be lessons learned from what happened yesterday. There were certainly more challenges this year than ever before.”
Vancouver police reported a higher turnout this year, with as many as 25,000 people crowding into Vancouver Art Gallery’s plaza and making it difficult for police and officials to manage the event.

5 companies with the biggest buzz in the marijuana industry

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

These are some of the companies with reason to celebrate on 4/20, the annual holiday for marijuana-lovers. 

Today is April 20, aka 4/20, the semi-official annual holiday for the marijuana industry and pot-enthusiasts around the world.

People flock to public celebrations across the country that, in some cases, attract crowds of thousands. Pot-related businesses also show off their products.
Over the weekend in Colorado, hordes of people got a head-start in what is a regulated market for both medical and recreational marijuana. In Denver, roughly 125,000 fans of Colorado’s progressive marijuana laws gathered on public property for an annual 4/20 rally — the number has a murky history, but it’s a nod to the time of day when stoners often light up — while thousands more in that city attended High Times‘ annual Cannabis Cup.
(For more on the Cannabis Cup and the 4/20 holiday, read this excerpt from author Bruce Barcott’s new book, Weed the People: The Future of Legal Marijuana in America.)
At both events, vendors pitching products — from cannabis strains and marijuana edibles to vaporizers — as they look to cash in on the so-called “green rush” in a regulated pot industry that could generate more than $10 billion in annual legal sales by 2018, according to The ArcView Group, a cannabis-focused investment firm. Twenty-three states have legalized medical marijuana, while four states and Washington, D.C. have legal recreational pot.

Introducing Prodigy: Spry’s All-In-One, Wireless, Electronic Dab Rig

Category: Product reviews | Posted on Tue, April, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

logo_stamp_2-01-01Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the last few years, you probably know that “dabs” are all the rage and have been steadily increasing in popularity amongst marijuana consumers. There has been a lot of progress made in the concentrate and extraction scene in a short amount of time: from new extraction hardware and techniques, to better refinement processes, from discreet vape pens to the development of e-nails.

I’ve been to a lot of trade shows over my years as a cannabis activist, and it’s always interesting to see new companies pop up, and who’s got a cool new idea. Now that I’m doing marketing and advertising for TWB, I’m super interested in seeing what kind of businesses are preparing to take our industry to the next level.

Well, this week I think I’ve found one of those businesses.

I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at a working prototype I believe the whole marijuana industry will be talking about very soon. A new start-up called Spry has designed an all-in-one, wireless vapor rig for concentrates and extracts.

They have created a product that simplifies dabbing for those who are intimidated by the complicated process of using a torch. It comes with a built-in battery powered titanium nail that can heat up to 1000 degrees, reaching a dabable temperature after just 30 seconds. The temperature can be adjusted digitally and comes with a wireless charging dock.

“After trying my first dab, I saw the need to simplify the process. It was very intimidating. The unfamiliar titanium nail, the dentist-looking dab tool, and the rig that looked different from any other bong I’ve ever seen. Most unsettling was the need for a crazy looking torch; It all seemed kind of dangerous to me,” says Nainoa Kuna, CEO and Founder of Spry.

Along with a Silicon Valley based product development firm, Kuna and his start-up designed a prototype for the Prodigy that will certainly get people talking.
