In an announcement released on AxisWire, 710 Security LTD, a fully-integrated cannabis security firm with offices in Colorado, Ohio and Michigan unveiled the news that it had officially acquired Leif Alert, a company headquartered in Evergreen, Colorado that provides custom security systems in homes and commercial cannabis facilities. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but Lief Alert Owner, Chris Boyd, will now join 710 Security as the Chief Operating Officer.

“I am extremely excited to work with Chris Boyd again. I had the pleasure of working with him right before Amendment 64 passed. He has a vast knowledge and understands the regulated struggles we face every day,” said David Beckett, Founder of 710 Security.

Since its inception, Lief Alert has positioned itself as a reputable cannabis security company, securing facilities in Colorado, Michigan and Oregon for Viola Extracts, Simply Pure, Starbuds, Bonfire Cannabis, A Cut Above and Dark Horse Genetics.

“I knew and worked with David for a small dealer in Denver for a few months before the industry started. How ironic that ten years later we are back together taking on America with the most experience in the cannabis industry hands down,” said Boyd. “His team is what I’ve needed for a few years now. I am now driven more than ever to make 710 Security highly successful.”

With the restructuring, 710 Security also added Ryan Shields as the Vice President of Operations. Shields has worked with Beckett for the past several years.

“Ryan has really become an amazing asset. 710 Security would not be able to provide the high level of service or support without his dedication and perseverance,” said Beckett. “Adding these guys to the team will allow us to focus on quality over quantity during our nationwide expansion strategy.”

“Teaming up with David and Chris, in addition to our combined years in the industry will allow us to provide a leading, innovative service to the cannabis industry nationally,” said Shields.

710 Security has worked with clients from more than 20 different states and  works for cybersecurity experts, speaking with manufacturers on how to best protect customer data and intellectual property within the cannabis space. 710 Security’s work is not exclusive to the cannabis industry. It also caters to projects like FEMA construction camps and classified clients in the government arena. With offices currently in Colorado, Michigan and Ohio, 710 Security is the process of opening a fourth office in Florida.

In an interview with Benzinga on the transaction, Jamie Cooper of Cannabiz Connection explained that “It’s great to have security experts like 710 Security bringing their experience and service into the Michigan market. The entire state is on the cusp of a massive cannabiz explosion and working with experienced companies is incredibly important.”

SANTA ROSA, CA – November 7, 2018 /AxisWire/ The Emerald Cup(the “Cup”) one of the cannabis industry’s premier culture and awards events, announced today that Willie Nelson will be honored as the recipient of an honorary award at the 15thannual cannabis celebration. The award will be given during a ceremony taking place on December 16 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, Calif. The 2018 Emerald Cup will mark Nelson’s first-ever appearance at a large-scale cannabis event.

Nelson, a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force with a six-decade career and over 200 albums, is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of CrazyRed Headed Stranger, and Stardust. As a longtime cannabis activist, he has been an advocate for both the consumption and legalization of marijuana and is the creator of his own recreational cannabis companies, Willie’s Reserve and Willie’s Remedy. The Emerald Cup will also honor Nelson by renaming the annual award to the Willie Nelson Award for future honorees.

In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new album releases, released a Top 10 New York Times’ bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, received his fifth degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul and headlined the annual Luck Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, TX during SXSW. Nelson, a Texas native with a long and well-known career as a singer, songwriter, author, poet and actor, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993. In 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music—making him the first-ever country artist to receive the distinguished award.

“We have a great deal of respect and admiration for Willie, who is graciously allowing the Cup to honor future individuals with an award that will remain in his name,” said Tim Blake, Founder and Producer of the Emerald Cup. “An unwavering ability to stand true in his beliefs and refusal to accept society’s rigid set of rules are only part of what makes Willie the perfect individual to be recognized as a hero to the cannabis world.”

Past honorees of the award include Pebbles Trippet, Eddy Lepp, Valarie Corral, Jack Herer, Ed Rosenthal, Tony Serra, Dennis Peron, Debby Goldsberry, Martin Lee, Mikki Norris, Chris Conrad, Fred Garner, Dale Geringer and Steph Sherer.

The Emerald Cup has grown into one of the largest, most influential cannabis events of the year and features a highly-curated experience for cannabis enthusiasts from around the world. Beyond its headlining musical acts, this year’s lineup features a variety of presentations from industry experts, artists and educators. Attendees will also have access to an array of exhibitors and retailers offering food, products and entertainment. Additional musical acts and artists will be announced over the coming weeks.

The annual cannabis celebration, taking place on December 15 through 16, will also continue its careful and elaborate judging process, which spans across multiple categories including flowers, concentrates, edibles, CO2 cartridges, topicals and a range of CBD categories. The contest intake dates run from October 15 to November 18, 2018.

Tickets are available for purchase through the Emerald Cup website, as well as ticket retailer Eventbrite. Weekend passes start at $120 and attendees must be over the age of 21. This year’s event will be a celebration of the new ways of thinking and living within cannabis culture.

Part 4 of 8 of the 2018 Cannabis Trends: Welcome to Hollyweed

Another emerging trend in the cannabis industry is the growing level of comfort between Hollywood and cannabis. Although it’s no secret that many Hollywood stars have been known to indulge in cannabis use from time to time, most have been reluctant to publicly open up about their affinity for cannabis. But now that recreational cannabis is legal in California, it seems like every celebrity with even a modicum of fame is rushing to cash in on the legal cannabis industry.

Before recreational cannabis became legal in California, there were already a handful of daring celebrities that launched their own cannabis brands.

As an ardent medical cannabis advocate, Montel Williams was one of the first celebrities to dive feet first into the cannabis industry. In 2016, Williams launched the medical cannabis lifestyle brand Lentiv; which sells hemp-based CBD supplements and cannabis oils.

Melissa Etheridge was also one of the first celebrities out of the gate; in 2014 she released her own brand of cannabis wine called Know Label. Although marketed as a wine, Know Label is technically classified as a tincture as current California law forbids the selling of products that mix alcohol and cannabis.

To the surprise of no one, Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong launched their own cannabis brands; Leafs by Snoop and Chong’s Choice.

As legalization spread throughout the country, becoming more of a question of when than if, more celebrities have come out of the woodwork. Willie Nelson has Willie’s Reserve, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop recently teamed up with the cannabis dispensary chain MedMen, and Whoopi Goldberg has Whoopi & Maya.

Not every cannabis loving celebrity wants to start their own brand, however, some just want to consume it. For those famous folk, a whole host of high-end luxury cannabis brands have started to take Hollywood by storm.

To start, the boutique hotel group Standard International has teamed up with the edibles maker Lord Jones to open a retail cannabis shop in the lobby of the Standard Hollywood, located on Sunset Boulevard. Once open, the shop will be stocked with high end cannabis products; both edible and smokeable.

During this year’s Academy Awards, the artisanal cannabis distributor Flow Kana became the first cannabis brand to hand out cannabis gift bags at the awards ceremony. Each bag contained several pre-rolled joints and jars of cannabis.

While stoner comedies have been a staple of Hollywood for decades, the same cannot be said of television; that is, until the last couple of years. The web series High Maintenance, which centers on a cannabis delivery man in New York, was picked up by HBO in 2016 and has been met with rave reviews.

Similarly, the streaming giant Netflix has already produced two cannabis-centered television shows, Disjointed and Cooking on High. Although neither show has been met with particularly favorable reviews, the fact that its subject matter is no longer controversial demonstrates the far reaching mainstream appeal of cannabis.

For all intents and purposes, cannabis has gone mainstream in Hollywood. In the short-term future, look for more celebrities entering into the cannabis industry, either with their own brand or as a partner with an existing company. Most of these brands will either fail commercially or simply fail to distinguish themselves; although the brands that lean into the luxury market will have a better chance of survival. Expect to see more awards shows and elite events embrace cannabis and don’t be surprised when joints become as common as a glass of champagne.

In the long-term, however, expect to see cannabis become boring. With more celebrities coming out about their cannabis use, more television shows about cannabis being produced, and more cultural institutions generally embracing cannabis; smoking a joint will no longer be seen as cool or edgy or anything other than normal.

Seattle, WA, June 19, 2018 /AxisWire/ MainStem, Inc. a leading cannabis e-commerce technology company, has launched an integrated marketplace with BioTrackTHC, a seed-to-sale software in the legal cannabis industry. BioTrackTHC has rolled out the integration to customers in Colorado, Washington, California, Puerto Rico, and Montanawith additional states to be rolled out systematically over the next several weeks. Customers can now enjoy the benefit of purchasing all their packaging, retail accessories, lighting, grow supplies and traceability equipment within their BioTrackTHC’s user-interface at competitive pricing.

“When our team created the MainStem Affiliate Program, we understood the influence it could have within our industry, and we’re ecstatic to see our community recognizing how easy it is to use,” said Garrett Hampton, CTO of MainStem, Inc.  “MainStem is known for our strength in product offerings and efficiencies, and this partnership provides BioTrackTHC’s user base with strong support from our business and our approach to open and connected partners throughout the industry. I look forward to extending integrations with all software applications and partners looking to streamline the overall process of supply chain management.”

Alen Nguyen, CEO of MainStem, Inc. commented: “We realized the opportunity presented by the fragmentation of the ancillary supply market in the cannabis industry. MainStem is revolutionizing the way traditional supply chain management is happening in the industry “.

“Imagine you’re dealing with thousands of plants/products being moved around in your seed-to-sale software and you realize you need more nutrients or packaging.  You’d have to leave what you’re working on to order more supplies, or make yourself a note to do it later,” said Dr. Moe Afaneh, COO of BioTrackTHC. “Without any incurred costs or change in monthly billing, we’re providing a way for customers to order those supplies without breaking from what they’re currently working on.  Businesses already invest so much time and money into seed-to-sale and compliance, so this adds a more efficient process to yet another facet of their business and does so in a way that also offsets the cost of your seed-to-sale software by leveraging partnerships.”

About MainStem, Inc.

Jamil Myrie To Manage Development, Execution of Retail Operations for Nation’s Largest Cannabis Company

New York City, June 18, 2018 /AxisWire/ Acreage Holdings (“Acreage”) (www.acreageholdings.com), the nation’s largest, multi-state actively-managed cannabis corporation, announced the hire of Jamil Myrie as the Head of Retail Operations. Myrie brings deep experience in expansion, strategic partnership development, and operational efficiency from leadership roles at GrandVision NV and For Eyes, both national optical retail chains. In his new role he will be responsible for the development, implementation, and execution of Acreage’s rapidly growing retail portfolio.

Myrie, a Harvard graduate, spent the past 18 years leading retail development and expansion. Most recently, he worked with GrandVision NV, a leading global optical retailer, to drive a North American expansion strategy across one thousand retail locations. Myrie spent over 16 years at For Eyes, a national optical retail chain, leading real estate, strategic planning, asset management and operations. He was also in charge of maximizing operational efficiency through and after For Eye’s 2015 acquisition by GrandVision.

In his new role as Head of Retail Operations, Myrie will manage Acreage’s rapidly growing retail portfolio spanning 12 states and growing. Acreage, which is on track to become the world’s leading cannabis company, is focused on providing safe, predictable and affordable cannabis through vertically integrated operations, including cultivation, processing and dispensing. In addition to managing portfolio acquisitions, Myrie will be leading the development, launch, and management of an innovative multi-state retail brand concept that Acreage will be announcing later this year.

On Myrie, Acreage CEO Kevin Murphy said, “Jamil’s skillset and professional experience enable him to keep pace with Acreage Holdings’ growth strategy. He brings a unique understanding of complex industries and changing regulatory landscapes. Acreage is committed to maximizing the consumer experience within the cannabis industry and Jamil will play a critical role in ensuring that our vision is developed and implemented to the highest level.”

On his new position, Jamil Myrie added, “I am humbled and excited to join the best team in the industry. Working with Acreage offers a rare opportunity to have a voice in the national conversation around cannabis. Leading the retail operations will enable me to leverage my professional experience to maximize expansion efforts and operational efficiency with a relentless focus on the consumer experience.”
