Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 21, 2015
On the eve of 4/20, the celebrated marijuana holiday Cannabis Patient Network Institute, Co-Founder Regina Nelson made a big announcement. Now, CEO of The eCS Therapy Center an approved 501(c)(3) organization, Nelson states, “The eCS Therapy Center is an organization focused on cannabis education for the masses and providing cannabis patient services like peer-counseling and therapy planning.” The eCS Therapy Center will go beyond services currently offered by dispensaries because I.R.S. regulations prevent even patient-centered owners from deducting salaries and other normal expenses associated with the sale of cannabis. Nelson hopes The eCS Therapy Center and the network of peer-counselors she’s already begun training will fill this void. She says she is looking forward to hosting cannabis therapy centers across the nation.
The eCS Therapy Center will open its first office in Colorado Springs, CO late in the summer and a second office in Peoria, IL before the end of the year. As well, a national toll-free hotline is expected to be fully operational this summer. Nelson has her hands full with the launch of this new organization and Cannabis Patient Network Institute (CPNI) the non-profit she and Mark Pedersen co-founded in 2013. Pedersen is also the author of the “Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act” now petitioning for the 2016 ballot.
In 2014 CPNI managed to provide more than $ 70,000 in educational services, patient counseling, and cannabis oil on a budget of only $ 20,000—most of which Nelson and Pedersen funded personally. Nelson is hoping that the launch of The eCS Therapy Center and CPNI’s Affiliation with it will help CPNI grow into a larger benevolence ministry. “Our sponsors understand the need is great.”
Nelson plans to release the “My eCS Therapy Journal” in June—calling the book a resource text for patients desiring more information on the use of cannabis as medicine. Her book, “Theorist-at-Large: One Woman’s Ambiguous Journey into Medical Cannabis” is now available on Amazon.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
A new era known as “The Green Rush” has arrived in the United States as prohibition has ended for marijuana (also know as weed, cannabis or pot). With the booming multi-million dollar marijuana industry in the United States, countless information sources are releasing marijuana-related news stories, opinions and features on a daily basis. The newest source is USMedicalMarijuana.net which aims to be a reliable source of medical marijuana news and information for people all over the US and around the world.
To date, more than 20 states across the country, as well as in the District of Columbia have ended the prohibition of marijuana for medical purposes. In Colorado and Washington, marijuana has been legalized for both medical use and responsible adult use. At the moment, many other states have some form of marijuana legislation in the books.
November 2013 was a historic month for the US and the world as two states, Colorado and Washington, finally legalized the recreational use of marijuana. The legalization of recreational cannabis in Colorado and Washington thus created a tipping point, and this is very much apparent in the economic changes that have resulted. In Colorado alone, marijuana made $ 1 million in sales on its first day. Washington State, which opened marijuana retail in June, is expected to do the same. Across the country, marijuana and hemp stocks dramatically rose at the start of 2014, following the two states’ legal conversion.
With the latest developments in terms of the legalization of medical marijuana, it is only natural that money has flowed into the industry. As the cannabis industry expands in size and reach, more sectors are getting involved. Firms are recognizing various opportunities along the chain, and have started to participate.
Companies have formed (and continue to form) that not only handle the plant or its product, but also to those that support them. These assisting firms are ancillary businesses, and they include insurance providers, security companies, consultants, and makers of complementary products such as vaporizers.
Also laws will continue to be rewritten over the next few weeks, months and years as the federal and state government figure out the best ways to deal with issues that arise from legalization.
USMedicalMarijuana.net will comb through the numerous materials on the marijuana industry and culture available both online and offline, and will make things more convenient for site visitors by publishing information that is both high quality and relevant.
The site strives to be a trustworthy source of information for individuals interested in the rapidly budding medical marijuana industry in North America. The website contains up-to-date news, as well as essential data and facts for individuals who wish to stay up to date on the latest that is going in this fast paced industry.
It is time to recognize the sweeping changes going in across the United States, as laws on cannabis use will continue to be rewritten over the next few years.
The group behind USMedicalMarijuana.net also owns a portfolio of cannabis related websites including http://www.potgrowing.net (legal pot growing technology & news) ,
http://www.michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz (Michigan cannabis news), http://www.washingtonmedicalmarijuana.biz (Washington cannabis news), http://www.newyorkmedmarijuana.biz (New York cannabis news) & http://www.californiamedicalmarijuana.biz (California cannabis news).

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
Will 2015 be remembered as the year the legal cannabis industry made its breakthrough with mainstream investors and business people? Or will this year just be a footnote; a breathing space ahead of the landmark marijuana legislation that many observers expect to be introduced by at least five states in 2016?
Those are just some of the issues being considered in an exclusive, three-part weekly news series on The State of the Cannabis Industry — being launched this week on Weedworthy.com, the all-things-marijuana news site that’s part of the WeedLife Social Network Marketplace.
Throughout the series, industry experts weigh in on a variety of issues – including the wildly different ways some states implement and enforce their legal cannabis laws, and whether the current political and cultural landscape is a help or hindrance for the legal marijuana movement.
They also examine the recent entrance of venture capital and the latest crop of institutional investors who are coming to Colorado and elsewhere, looking at the legal cannabis sector’s financial potential.
Troy Dayton, CEO and co-founder of The ArcView Group – which recently released the third edition of its State of the Legal Marijuana Markets report – tells WeedWorthy that one of the challenges facing the cannabis industry is how to best “marry the best ideals of activism with the best ideals of business.”
Another industry observer interviewed for the WeedWorthy articles notes that while there’s a lot of investment money flooding into the industry, not all of it is from high-rollers.
“At the lower levels there are plenty of people seeking investments in places like Washington State, where people are dying for investments, trying to get their retail pot shops open,” says Seattle-based Bruce Barcott, author of Weed the People, The Future of Legal Marijuana in America, which is scheduled for publication by Time Books in April.
Barcott also notes that ancillary companies, such as insurance and security groups, are looking to cash in on the new and rapidly-growing “green rush” created by the legal cannabis industry.
The WeedLife Social Network Marketplace is a series of free-to-use websites specifically designed for the marijuana industry and its consumers – bringing news, sales information and other important cannabis-related data together, all under one online roof. WeedLife’s network of web site apps creates an online social marketplace of ideas, products and connections that work with both cannabis producers, distributors and dispensaries, as well as the tens of thousands of ancillary companies supporting the industry.
WeedLife also allows cannabis consumers and businesses to communicate and learn more about each other in a more rapid timeframe — helping them to better target their products, services and customer needs — as the cannabis sector’s consumer demographic changes, evolves and matures.

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
Denver, Colorado based technology startup CannaBuild has announced the launch of their order reservation platform Whaxy. Available in the AppStore and mobile web, Whaxy allows users to browse for cannabis products at local dispensaries and reserve them for pickup at their desired time.
“Buying legal cannabis has become a regular thing to do for millions of people,” stated CannaBuild CEO and CoFounder Zach Marburger. “We’re excited to turn this process into more of an experience that fits with people’s daily routines.”
As cannabis legalization measures continue to sweep the nation, more and more consumers are looking for easy and reliable methods to attain legal cannabis. Users of Whaxy are able to easily identify what strains and cannabis infused products are right for them through a number of different filters including flavors, effects, and medical conditions.
The technology that powers the Whaxy app is what CannaBuild considers it’s core product offering. “We built Whaxy as a proof of concept for the ordering capabilities in our API,” Marburger said.
“You can already see a rush of cannabis related apps entering the market place. Many of these apps have the desire to access real time inventory in some form or fashion, but integrating and maintaining a connection with multiple POS systems is extremely difficult. Our goal is to be the hub in between these two worlds, allowing any developer to easily build and deploy applications.”
Currently in private beta, the Whaxy API is fully integrated with one POS system with others in process. However, using Whaxy or the ordering functions do not require a POS system connection.
“Giving our customers the ability to browse and shop on their own time is essential with today’s modern cannabis consumer,” said Ean Seeb, Owner of Denver Relief, Chairman of the NCIA, and CannaBuild advisory board member.
Along with Seeb, CannaBuild’s advisory board includes Silicon Valley veteran and co-inventor of Blu Ray technology Carter Laren and Partner of Scale Finance, Gerhard Renner.
“We’re extremely excited to have an advisory board with as much expertise as they do,” Marburger stated. “Their abilities to help us navigate uncharted territories is crucial in developing a product that provides real value to cannabis businesses.”
Seed funded in June of 2014 through investors from the ArcView Group, CannaBuild is one of the fastest growing start ups in the cannabis tech space.
