New York City – March 3, 2020 /AxisWire/ The Green Market Report (GMR), the cannabis industry’s leading financial news outlet, releases its first Psychedelic Trend Report.  This nine-page, 3500-word report was created as a result GMR’s first ground-breaking, sold-out event on the emerging psychedelic market it held in NYC in January. This original report looks at the trends and companies that are paving the way for new looks at old treatments. You can download the report at greenmarketreport.com/reports.

As more municipalities and states begin to decriminalize various psychedelic products for medical treatments, the investment world has taken an interest in the emerging industry. Many cannabis industry leaders and investors have begun crossing over into the psychedelic world to start new companies and pursue new medical treatments.It was the interest in this evolving industry that caused the Green Market Report to host its first Psychedelic Investing Summit in New York City.

We have heard from our readers at Green Market Report that there is a great deal of interest in this emerging field of psychedelics and the companies that are leading the way. We’re also seeing that some cannabis investors are adding psychedelic investments to their portfolios. As we tried to research this industry, we found that information was lacking and that is what prompted us to hold our Summit and write this report.” Debra Borchardt, Co-founder & CEO of Green Market Media

This report gives a brief introduction to the uses of psychedelic treatments, the potential patient populations and the legal landscape for these compounds. It also highlights companies like Mind Medicine Inc., Atai Life Sciences, Field Trip Health and Eleusis Ltd., which are each pursuing different paths for treating patients. The report also covers the research being performed by companies like Back of the Yards Algae Sciences and the investment goals of companies Green Sky Strategies that is putting money into these endeavors.

Green Market Report will be hosting its next conference The Economics of 2020 Cannabis on April 3, in New York City featuring one panel on psychedelics and following that it will host another Psychedelic Investing Summit on July 30, in San Francisco. The report is available now on the Green Market Report website.

Papa & Barkley’s “Declaration of Clean Cannabis” defines what consumers should look for in its cannabis and CBD products and invites the industry to join the movement for transparency and clean standards 

EUREKA, Calif. – Jan. 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Papa & Barkley, the #1 California cannabis wellness company best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, released its Declaration of Clean Cannabisa set of principles that define the rigorous steps that their products undergo from soil to shelf in order to produce clean cannabis wellness products with premium ingredients. As the cannabis industry is still evolving at the national level, Papa & Barkley has the opportunity to lead the industry by example, while also educating consumers on what to look for when researching and purchasing cannabis and CBD products.  

We believe in clean cannabis as being at the core of what we do,” said Adam Grossman, Founder and CEO of Papa & Barkley. Our mission is to unlock the potential of cannabis to improve people’s lives, and we are committed to sourcing clean cannabis and making great products using best-in-class production methods.  

The Declaration of Clean Cannabis includes five key principles: 

  1. Organic and regenerative farming practices – Choose trusted farm partners in the U.S. who use native soil, organic and regenerative farming practices when growing both cannabis and hemp plants.   
  2. Solventless Avoid solvents and chemical extraction methods that yield isolates or distillates; employ a solventless whole plant infusion process that maintains the integrity of the plant and creates more effective products.  
  3. Whole plant infusion – By infusing the whole plant, it maintains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, chlorophyll and valuable phytonutrients; naturally infused into products without the use of chemicals or adding terpenes.
  4. Clean ingredients – Supporting ingredients such as carrier oils, essential oils and beeswax are clean, conscientiously sourced and made with no residual chemicals. 
  5. Triple-tested by third-party – To ensure the product is clean throughout the process from soil to shelf, its crucial to test the product at three stages – the input cannabis plant material, the infused oil and the final blended product. 

“We applaud Papa & Barkley for challenging others in the cannabis industry to assess their supply chain, self-regulate and triple test to provide clean cannabis products,” said Aaron Riley, President of CannaSafe. “Their principles for clean cannabis ensure product efficacy, and we’re proud to work with Papa & Barkley and be a part of the movement for leading the standard of clean in the cannabis industry.”

LAS VEGAS, NV., November 21, 2019 /AxisWire/ The next generation of cannabis retail technology has arrived to solve one of the biggest pain points facing mainstream cannabis consumers: Deciding which strain, product or brand to purchase. Introducing Cannabiscope, a new Software as a Service (Saas) platform combining science, data and technology to reinvent how retailers merchandise cannabis, and how both medical and recreational consumers make smart, well-informed purchase decisions.

The Cannabiscope shopping tool, customized to meet each organizations needs, is an interactive wheel that invites consumers to learn and shop at the same time. Whether browsing online or at a retail location, through a series of clicks shoppers select desired effects, preferred delivery methods, flavor, scents, dosage and more as the Cannabiscope wheel guides the consumer to the right product for them. The education model of the wheel is designed to turn cannabis confusion into curiosity, aiding newly informed customers to explore and make confident decisions on purchase choices that will more accurately reflect their desired cannabis effect.

Give Cannabiscope a spin!

“Whether they’re hoping to treat pain, anxiety or sleep issues, it is difficult for consumers to compare different cannabis strains or products and make an informed, confident purchase decision,” said Cannabiscope co-founder and CEO David Schacter. “We want to change how people think about and understand cannabis, and provide a science-led, data-backed platform for education and discovery.”

For businesses, Cannabiscope offers a customizable version of the wheel to reflect, track and market current inventory in real-time. In-store kiosks or online models present customers with informative, accurate menu offerings while providing robust back-end consumer insights to retailers. The platform allows brands to display detailed product descriptions, dosage information, product photos and certified lab results, allowing both medical patients and recreational customers to purchase with confidence.

“We believe the combination of the wheel’s ability to integrate buyer intent, consumer data, and information gathered from multiple points of sale will give our partners an edge in this incredibly competitive space through unique data insights,” stated Cannabiscope co-founder Paul Shockley. “Whether you are a retailer, cultivator or educator, Cannabiscope creates a new front door for your business.”

The robust content management system and integrated approach to point of sales tracking is designed around education, to solve for the lack of industry consumer data, and to empower the growth and success of the now and future cannabis industry. Cannabiscope’s technology is currently in use by over 250 cannabis companies and ancillary businesses, including:

 

 

In addition to the current cannabis-centric version of the wheel, the company has completed a recent round of funding to launch a CBD-specific, e-commerce enabled version, expected in the second quarter of 2020.

With a focus on the millions pouring into the cannabis space by big business and investors and how it shapes the industry, the two-day-long event explores; 

  • how to raise money and build a media company;

“The media plays a crucial role in shaping how the public understands key issues, including cannabis legalization,” said Mannada Founder and Senior Counsel to Greenspoon Marder Kristin Jordan. “Journalists are our first line of defense against out of control corporations, unethical business and outdated, draconian federal cannabis policies. We couldn’t be more excited to have some of the cannabis industry’s top writers, publicists and business people to help uncover why this new beat is important to business, policy and politics, social justice, economics and culture.”

Kristin and her team always recruit an inclusive lineup of accomplished speakers who push me to look deeper and consider new perspectives — the kind of wisdom I can’t wait to share with my readers.”
