Cannabis Now is a bi-monthly publishing company that releases articles about the recent developments on cannabis legislation, advancements in horticultural research, and medical marijuana. The publication also expands its circle of discourse by including news about politics, social change, and economic trends. With the vast array of reports, Cannabis Now is a diverse media company that takes readers through an informative and extensive read.
Cannabis products are derived from the cannabis plant – it is popularly known as marijuana. Some users call cannabis interchangeably with the term weed. In many cases, the drug alleviates medical conditions like chronic pain, glaucoma, and poor appetite. For others, marijuana gets used for creative and recreational purposes.
Cannabis Now was founded in 2010 with the motive to change the persisting negative connotations about medical drugs like cannabis. More often than not, people have reservations when they discuss drugs. The negatively biased treatment towards medicinal drugs puts people who medically subscribe to the drugs in an antagonistic position. With threads of news about crimes done by people when they are under the influence of prohibited substances, the popular psyche still leans to the unpleasant facet of drug overdose.
Victories are slowly happening among U.S. states as they legalize the use of recreational and medical marijuana. States like Alaska, California, Illinois, Washington, D.C., among others, have legislated allowing its citizens to access the benefits of cannabis. Even so, other states remain uncooperative despite the roaring call to permit its use.
The goal of Cannabis Now is to change the unsolicited and biased outlook towards cannabis by publishing and highlighting news that narrates stories of self-help, recreation, and well-being of people who use these substances. With more and more states legalizing cannabis, coupled with the piling academic journals about its positive benefits, the cause is flourishing. The publishing company makes sure that the public does not miss out on all the relevant news relating to these.
In 2013, the Apple App Store permitted Cannabis Now to be made available to its users. It became the first cannabis publication to ever register in the Apple store. The digital edition of the magazine publication allows for an extended reach of audiences. Even before, their scope is national. Cannabis Now copies dot many dispensaries, head shops, smoke shops, bookstores, and many other outlets across the country. They also distribute copies in Hudson News, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Kroger, and in all major airports. The digital copy of Cannabis Now can also be accessed by Android users.
For over ten years, Cannabis Now grew to be the only cannabis publication to ever retail in major airports nationally. With their quality and timely news, the company landed a spot at the global market as the 2nd largest cannabis magazine publication in the world, next to the High Times.
In celebrating its success, the publication opened Cannabis Now CBD retail store at the Beverly Connection in Los Angeles. There, people can buy the permitted forms of marijuana with ease and in a safe environment. However, the wellness store was looted and vandalized by unidentified people during the recent protests in L.A.
The store suffered significant losses and is now asking for help from the community to rebuild the store so that they would once again provide excellent services to their loyal customers.
