A potent little herb is radically changing culture as it buds into the mainstream. In 2015, Americans spent $3.4B on legal marijuana in an industry expected to be worth up to $35B by 2020. This growing marijuana space is a vast opportunity for entrepreneurs and brands across industries – many of which have nothing to do with traditional pot. As our taste for cannabis grows, the taboo associated with marijuana is being lifted: Weed is not only changing culture, but culture is changing weed. Shedding its illicit roots, marijuana is shaking up everything from design to food, and politics to education. And this is only the beginning of the cannabis cultural revolution. Find out how your brand can slice into this pot of disruption. Marijuana is an ingredient that alters our natural state, much like a morning cup of coffee or an evening meditation routine. (Even our interaction with technology via social media or wearables affects our moods, altering us in mind and body.) These socially acceptable go-betweens, which help us function on the job or in our leisure time, dial our experiences and interactions with the world to a more preferable setting. Although legal in only a few US states, marijuana is one of the most popular intermediaries for Americans. Like coffee or alcohol, marijuana will become an ingredient engrained in our everyday lives. This cultural shift is opening up unprecedented opportunities – most of which have nothing to do with yesterday’s stoner weed – and everything to do with a new face of a familiar flower. This culture forecast explores the cultural forces budding from cannabis, at its very tipping point. Our report examines: How the mainstreaming of marijuana is shifting culture and business ideology. How cannabis is becoming a lifestyle ingredient in beauty, food, tourism and more. From design to retail and weddings, how marijuana is shifting our expectations of how we use exterior and interior spaces. The stigmas and conversations around marijuana and their prevalence among certain groups of people online. How marijuana is influencing modern family dynamics, in medicinal, recreational and educational ways. The future of marijuana where it’s only beginning to bud: in sports partnerships, VR, and even dating. 97 pp., 25 illustrations Methodology For this report, sparks & honey conducted proprietary research and interviewed cannabis industry experts. We surveyed 1,000 people, who had used marijuana at least once, in states where cannabis is legal. Using social listening tools, we gauged public sentiment around the mainstreaming of marijuana over the last six months, and consulted with High Times on the cannabis industry. Tapping into our global scout network and proprietary cultural intelligence system, we combed through thousands of signals to build a vision of the future cultural landscape of cannabis.

from GreenCulturED, ago in
Let’s Brush Up On Your Marijuana History Cannabis (also known as marijuana and hemp) is indigenous to Central and South Asia. Contemporary uses of cannabis are as a recreational or medicinal drug, and as part of religious or spiritual rites; the earliest recorded uses date from the 3rd millennium B.C. The Chinese Emperor Fu His (ca. 2900 B.C.), whom the Chinese credit with bringing civilization to China, seems to have made reference to Ma, the Chinese word for Cannabis, noting that Cannabis was a very popular medicine that possessed both yin and yang. Around 2000 B.C., the Egyptians used cannabis to treat sore eyes. And then a century later, doctors in India could be found mixing marijuana with milk to use as an anesthetic. In 200 B.C. the Greeks used marijuana to remedy earaches. During the Middle Ages, hemp was central to any herbalist’s medicine cabinet. William Turner, the naturalist considered the first English botanist, praised it in his New Herball, published in 1538. It was in the early 1,600’s when Jamestown settlers brought the marijuana plant, commonly known as hemp, to North America and throughout the colonial period, hemp fiber was an important export. Such notable used for cannabis slowed to a screeching halt and was temporarily removed from history after 1937, when the Marihuana Tax Act effectively banned the drug in the United States. Marijuana Is Actually A Misunderstood Kind Of Substance It is a good thing that debates have paved the way to discover that it has many good uses more than what’s been described since Congress passed the Controlled Substances Act in 1970 that classified marijuana as a drug with “no accepted medical use”. It was in the same year that NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) was founded as a nonprofit, public-interest advocacy group whose mission is to end marijuana prohibition. Marijuana history was made in America on November 5th, 1996 when voters in California passed a state medical marijuana initiative known as Proposition 215. The legislation permits patients and their primary caregivers, with a physician’s recommendation, to possess and cultivate marijuana for medical use. Today 60% of Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use, according to an April 2010 AP-CNBC poll. Many more states now allow the usage of marijuana for certain medical condition thus giving birth to the term medical marijuana and are now paving the road for the legal cannabis industry. Many medical studies have shown that marijuana has the ability to help people suffering from a variety of medical conditions. Tumor cells growing in some areas in the body have been scientifically proven to decrease through marijuana use. In fact, many of states are willing to let it help the economy by imposing taxes on it. People who have been supporting the use and growing of marijuana are expecting that the law changes will soon make it happen. Learn
