The Farm recreational dispensary is proud to promote cultural arts by supporting the Colorado Film Society’s (CFS) biggest event of the year—the 13th Annual Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF). This community event brings films, filmmakers and moviegoers from around the world to Boulder for a four-day celebration of cinema arts and culture. To add to the festivities, The Farm, with support from local companies Suerte Tequila, Wana Brands, Wibby Brewing, and Dixie Elixirs, is hosting a Happy Hour Mixer at the BIFF Filmmaker Lounge at the Lazy Dog in Downtown Boulder. Guests can enjoy complimentary drinks (provided by Wibby and Suerte) and appetizers (courtesy of Wana and Dixie), as well as live music by local talent, Bella Musser and Amy Kress. (more…)
The Wait is Over
The City of Boulder cordially invites the Boulder community to celebrate the completion of the Diagonal Highway Transportation Improvements Project. Festivities will take place between 28th Street and Independence Road. Come scope out the new art!
The project transformed a critical section of the Diagonal Highway into a multi-modal corridor and gateway to and from Boulder, with a new roadway surface, multi-use path, off-street protected bicycle lanes and upgraded transit stops, while maintaining the existing vehicular lanes. The improvements contribute to a safer and more efficient travel experience for drivers, transit users, pedestrians, cyclists, and our Farm guests. (more…)
‘World’s Largest’ Cannabis Career Fair Returns to Denver
BOULDER, Colorado, January 18, 2016 – The legal cannabis industry is responsible for the creation of over an estimated 123,000 full-time jobs in the United States, according to Leafly. This year, it is expected that the demand for cannabis industry jobs will double. In 2016, marijuana sales were over $1 billion ($1 billion in the first ten months), and it is projected that in 2017 this number will continue to rise. For those looking to get to get into the industry, there is a plethora of options.
Some of the jobs that will be available in a wide variety of areas are:
- Finance and Banking
- Web Development
If you’ve ever wanted to work in the cannabis industry, now’s your chance. Vangst Talent is hosting a Cannabis Career Summit and Product Showcase on Thursday, January 19th in Denver at City Hall, located at 1144 Broadway. Over 30 companies will be present, with over 100 positions available. The event will take place from 2:00 – 8:00 pm. The entry price is $10 at the door or FREE with a valid MED-licensed badge.

In order to qualify for a job in the cannabis industry, you must be a resident of Colorado. In addition, you need to make sure you meet these requirements, set forth by the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division. Unfortunately, if you do not satisfy any of these requirements, you will not be allowed to get your marijuana occupational license.

Cannabidiol (CBD) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD has been linked to veterans for more than three decades. In addition to our veterans, anyone who has been through a traumatic experience may suffer from PTSD today. Most commonly, however, it is our veterans who suffer and must live with this condition. The answer to helping our veterans in the past has been to prescribe them a cocktail of various prescription drugs combined with endless rounds of counseling.
According to the National Center for PTSD:
- “Post-traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental health problem that can occur after a traumatic event like war, assault, or disaster.”
- An estimated 7.8% of Americans (22,260,000 according to the population as of 2014) at some point in their lives will experience PTSD.
- Women, on average, have twice the risk (10.4%) compared to men when it comes to developing PTSD.
Vote “Yes” on 300: One Step Closer to Creating a Cannabis Lovers’ Paradise
Election day is a time-honored tradition for heated debates—sometimes between friends and family—an overload of opinions on Facebook, and a smattering of bumper stickers that might later harbor some regrets. While we are all well aware that the presidential election is coming up, the media attention to it may have cast a shadow over an important local issue for our industry.
On November 8th, the city of Denver, Colorado is excited to be voting on Ordinance 300, Denver’s Neighborhood-Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program (NSCCPP), proposes to allow locals and tourists to consume cannabis publicly.
- A “yes” vote supports temporarily allowing most businesses to establish certain designated areas or designated venues in which marijuana could be consumed.
- A “no” vote opposes allowing such designated areas for public consumption of marijuana.
