The cannabis industry is constantly evolving. Here's how to stay up to date on everything related to cannabis.
Navigating the murky waters of the cannabis industry can be difficult. And with so many legislative changes affecting the industry all the time, it's absolutely crucial to stay current in the world of cannabis.
STAY UP TO DATE ON EVERYTHING ABOUT CANNABIS
If you are interested in the cannabis industry for any reason, follow the tips below to make sure you are always up to date with what's going on.
1. SUBSCRIBE TO NEWSLETTERS AND BLOGS
For constant updates, be sure to subscribe to newsletters and alerts from your favourite publishers to be notified when there is a new release info.
If you are concerned that your personal or business accounts may be full of all of these updates, consider creating a separate online account for all cannabis information.
2. CREATE GOOGLE ALERTS
Google Alerts is one of the best ways to stay informed about updates on almost everything.
Setting up Google Alerts for the cannabis industry is easy. Here's how to do it:
1. Go to google.com/alerts. 2. Define the search terms for which you want alerts. Here are some possible search terms:
cannabis / marijuana / herb
legal herb / cannabis / marijuana
cannabis / marijuana / herb in YOUR PLACE
3. Use "View Options" to limit your alerts to specific regions, sources, languages, as well as to choose which email your alerts should be sent to, and how often.
Over time, you will better understand what type of content is most relevant to you. In this case, be sure to continue modifying your Google Alerts settings to receive only the best, most relevant content, sent to your mailbox.
3. LISTEN TO PODCASTS
Podcasts are a great source of information, and the cannabis industry is taking full advantage of this incredible platform. Even better, you don't need to download anything to start listening; just use the podcast app on iOS or Google Play Music if you're using Android. If you really want to try a third-party app just for podcasts, try Player FM.
Remember that there is a lot of content on the internet, and just typing "cannabis" into your podcast application will yield all kinds of different results. Try refining your search to find more personalized content, such as culture podcasts, industry news, and more.
Some podcasts that we recommend you consult:
CannaInsider (in-depth industry information)
Dude Grows (culture, info and humor on cannabis)
The Adam Dunn Show (news, science, culture)
The Potcast (cross-breeding, culture and long-term interviews)
I'm Too Effing High (humor)
Great Moments In Weed History (stories, idiocy)
High Friends (a podcast for women who love cannabis)
4. SUBSCRIBE TO YOUTUBE CHANNELS ON CANNABIS
YouTube can be a powerful educational tool. So if you're new to the world of cannabis, be sure to check it out for everything from growing tips and equipment reviews to industry news.
Unfortunately, YouTube has a strange relationship with weed, and sometimes disables channels dedicated to cannabis for their content. Also, some cannabis content can be hidden from general feeds, so it's better to check specific channels directly rather than using YouTube's search engine to browse the content.
Here are some YouTube cannabis channels you should check out:
The Cannabis Connoisseur Connection or "theCCC420" (cannabis cultivation, product reviews, etc.)
Grower's Network (culture)
Lex Blazer (culture, selection, extraction, etc.)
That High Couple (travel, education, lifestyle / culture, etc.)
Coral Reefer (questions and answers, news, etc.)
