BIRTHJAYS® to Launch in Massachusetts Through Exclusive Deal with Northeast Alternatives

Fall River, Massachusetts ( Friday Nov 11, 2022 @ 3:30 PM Mountain —

The world’s first joint birthday candle, the Birthjay will be available, filled as a ‘Ready to Celebrate’ offering at Northeast Alternatives’ (NEA) Medical/Adult-Use cannabis dispensary in Massachusetts and other local dispensaries carrying NEA products. This license agreement with Birthjays gives NEA exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights to offer filled Birthjays in the state.

Birthjays are one-of-a-kind, smoke-able cake toppers created by adult novelty product company Higher Celebrations, and before securing this filling partnership with NEA, they were only sold as empty cones in smoke shops across the country and online.

“This is how Birthjays were meant to be enjoyed– packed with some of the best flower the market can offer, ready to celebrate whenever you are,” said Michael Scherr, CEO & Founder of Higher Celebrations.

The festive pre-rolled cone is topped with a candlewick and proprietary mote that prevents wax from leaking onto the cone. Lighting up the party with a Birthjay is easy, especially if they are purchased pre-filled with premium cannabis flower. Simply top the joint with the provided candle-wick widget, attach the cake stake to the bottom of the cone, and then place it on top of the dessert of your choice.

Having amassed a staggering 61 awards in cannabis competitions since 2019, NEA is known throughout New England for producing products of the highest quality. As one of the top five producers in the market, NEA’s award-winning flower, edibles, concentrates, vapes, and prerolls can be found in over 150 retail locations in Massachusetts.

Birthjays are available with the buyer’s choice of three strains cultivated in-house by NEA’s growing experts: Tropsanto #7, Ice Cream Man, or Mandarin Cookies. Available strains and price points may vary based on location.

Tropsanto #7 is a hybrid cultivar cross of GMO x Tropicana Cookies. NEA’s pheno takes much of its flavor profile from its Tropicana Cookies lineage, with a sweet doughy taste topped off with fruit notes. Many users claim they enjoy this strain for its impressive terpene profile and euphoric heady effects.

Ice Cream Man is an indica hybrid cross of Jetfuel Gelato x Legend Orange Apricot F2. Many users report a mildly energetic and euphoric high that hits quickly despite its indica lineage. This award-winning strain is a fan-favorite known for its gorgeous looks and unique aroma and flavor, similar to fresh lemon sorbet. This strain is a High Times Cannabis Cup, Harvest Cup, and a NECANN Competition winner.

Mandarin Cookies is Sativa hybrid cross of Ethos Cookie #12 x Mandarin Sunset R1. The Mandarin Cookies’ flavor profile spans doughy, pancake-like notes and savory garlic, mushroom, and gravy flavors. Mandarin Cookies offers a well-balanced, functioning high, and the strain from NEA has taken home two Harvest Cups and the 2nd Prize for THC Flower at the 2021 Commonwealth Cannabis Competition.

Wana Brands CEO Nancy Whiteman Recognized with Benzinga Lifetime Achievement Award

Chicago, IL ( Thursday Nov 3, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Mountain —

CHICAGO – Wana Brands CEO Nancy Whiteman won the Benzinga Lifetime Achievement Award tonight during the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Chicago, recognizing her long list of accomplishments in the cannabis industry as a leader of one of North America’s top cannabis-infused brands.

The Benzinga Cannabis Awards celebrate new, creative, innovative, and outstanding people, solutions, and companies in the cannabis industry. Named in honor of the cannabis trailblazer, the Brett Roper Award for Lifetime Achievement recognizes “the person who, over the course of their career, has done the most to forward the enablement of the cannabis industry.”

As Wana Brands CEO, Nancy Whiteman has been instrumental in securing the company’s position as a top international brand now available in more than 3,000 dispensaries across the United States and Canada. Whiteman directs the development of partnerships and licensing agreements domestically and internationally. She leads the company’s strategic vision and has been instrumental in Wana Brands’ growth into new and emerging markets. Most recently, Whiteman established the Wana Brands Foundation, an organization working to enhance the world by supporting a wide variety of nonprofits in Wana’s communities.

“I’m humbled to receive this recognition. I never imagined when we established Wana Brands over a decade ago that I would one day be acknowledged by my peers with a lifetime achievement award. I’m honored to be rewarded for the job I love doing so much, and I share this award with my team who have worked with me to make Wana Brands the success it is today,” Whiteman said.

The Benzinga award comes on the heels of a litany of accolades Wana Brands has received in 2022, including earning the rank of no. 3,205 on the annual Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing companies. The 2022 ranking marks the fifth year in a row Wana Brands was named on the Inc. 5000 list. In addition, Whiteman was named to the Denver Business Journal’s 2022 Outstanding Women in Business list, and was an honoree in the Boulder, Colorado Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Women Who Light The Community event. Rounding out the list of the company’s recent awards, Vice President of Innovation Mike Hennesy was recently named a Denver Business Journal C-Suite Award winner for 2022.

The Wana Brands Foundation was created with a $50 million endowment and supports community organizations focused on enhancing lives, improving medical outcomes, increasing diversity and inclusion within the cannabis industry, and advancing cannabis research and education. This year, the Foundation funded initiatives to further voter education and registration through a partnership with the League of Women Voters, provide healthy food to people in need across 13 states, and support community healing by donating funds to the Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado for a memorial gazebo dedicated to a victim of the King Soopers shooting.

Wana Brands leads the industry in innovation with an expanded product portfolio featuring a range of different CBD/THC ratios as well as a variety of different dosages, onset times, and duration of effects. Recent innovations include Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies, which provide Delta-9 -THC effects similar to inhalation with an onset time of just 5-15 minutes, and Wana Optimals, a suite of daily wellness products powered by rare and major cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant-based ingredients to help people achieve important health goals such as sound sleep and appetite suppression. All Wana products are manufactured in line with cGMP and HACCP practices and are tested for potency.

Lift Events & Experiences Announces Game-Changing San Francisco Cannabis Business Conference & Trade Show

San Francisco, California ( Thursday Nov 3, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Mountain —

Lift Events & Experiences, known for Canada’s number-one cannabis industry conferences and trade shows, is expanding across the continent. This U.S. debut is set to disrupt – and pleasantly surprise – through advocacy-oriented content, inclusive networking, irresistible activations, and unmatched new product discovery opportunities with live product on the show floor to see, touch, and smell. Dedicated to honoring the grassroots legacy of the cannabis industry, while serving each of its unique modern audiences, Lift’s premiere U.S. event will be hosted at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from Wednesday, August 2 – Friday, August 4, 2023.

“Lift welcomes everyone, from legacy participants to multistate operators to everyday folks who enjoy and respect the plant,” says Lift Events & Experiences Portfolio Lead, Lindsay Roberts. “We’re producing a year of shows that care for the specific needs of each segment of the cannabis community while inspiring an exciting future. To emphasize this commitment, we’re dropping our old ‘&Co. Expo’ moniker to put the focus simply on ‘Lift’ as we work to affect positive change across North America.”

Well-known for events in Toronto and Vancouver, Lift’s recent ownership change places an experienced and driven group at the helm as it adds San Francisco to its 2023 line-up. Through one-on-one connections and conversations, the Lift team ensures that each event’s content, expo, and activations are unique. And most importantly, Lift focuses on individual audiences within the full cannabis spectrum – growers, brands and product delivery, advocacy and investment, legal/compliance, budtenders, and more – while paying tribute to the roots of each event’s location.

“The Lift brand has a remarkable history of elevating thought-leaders and trailblazers in our industry,” says Gia Morón, President of Women Grow. “Cannabis is at a pivotal juncture across the United States, Canada, and throughout the world. I am so excited to see Lift bringing its unique event to San Francisco. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow a responsible, equitable, and profitable industry – and have a really great time while doing it.”

“It’s great to see a Canadian event like Lift now expanding into the U.S. market, especially a market as close to the heart of the cannabis industry as San Francisco,” says Dan Sutton, CEO of British Columbia-based Tantalus Labs. “The ties between the U.S. West Coast and Western Canada’s long-thriving cannabis culture are well known, and the Lift event bridging those cultures highlights the value in this increasingly global conversation.”

The event will take place at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Lift will incorporate some of the historical elements of the Cannabis Business Summit & Expo into Lift San Francisco and is honored to host in a city renowned as the epicenter of the U.S. cannabis reform movement. The three-day schedule will include the Lift Cannabis Business Conference on August 2, 2023, followed by two days of exhibits and activations, August 3-4, 2023. Key to the experience is Lift’s signature surprises and “a-ha” moments, which can include live music, cameo appearances, prize giveaways, and unique demonstrations, as well as the legendary Lift After Party. Notably, the Moscone Center in San Francisco also makes possible something completely unique: the ability for brands to showcase products on the show floor for attendees to see, touch and smell. In short, those in the know always “expect the unexpected” at Lift.

Throughout the event, topics affecting the business, diversity, and future viability of cannabis will be addressed, and healthy debates with tangible outcomes will be encouraged. Leading subject matter experts and fresh new voices will take to the stage. Retailers, brands, and those who help to create them from seed to sale will be elevated and innovative new products will come to light. Last but certainly not least, the team at Lift is also committed to competitive pricing at a time when so many members of our industry are feeling the crunch. It’s all in a day’s work for the events and experiences dedicated to lifting the cannabis community.

  • Lift by the Numbers (per event):

    • 10,000+ Participant Admissions

WCI Health’s Let’s Talk Plant Medicine with Dr. O Finds New Podcast Home with Cannabis Radio

Orange Park, FL ( Thursday Oct 27, 2022 @ 11:20 AM Central —

WCI Health LLC, an alternative health and wellness company created to address the misconceptions and lies surrounding medicinal herbs like psilocybin (magic mushrooms), cannabis, and other entheogens announce its partnership with Cannabis Radio for the live coverage of ALL its events including Booth vending. Cannabis Radio will also produce its podcast “Let’s Talk Plant Medicine: Cannabis, Psychedelic & Pharmaceutics.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mental illness has become a big problem in the United States and growing globally. Over 300 million people suffer from depression before the COVID-19 pandemic. One-third of depression sufferers are resistant to current conventional therapy. 6-9% of the population suffers from PTSD. At least 35 million people suffer from substance abuse issues. Millions of legal cannabis patients and other plant medicine users are unable to quickly get medicine due to the inability of businesses to advertise on mainstream media and social platforms resulting from the constant blocking & banning of ads by these organizations, including Facebook, Instagram & Google. Cannabis-based businesses are frustrated by unreasonable censorship resulting in an inability to make a profit & keep business afloat. 

Over 1.2 billion people are suffering from various ailments treatable with plant medicine like Magic Mushroom (psilocybin) and Cannabis. A recent Phase 3 trial by MAPS shows that patients experienced remission from depression for up to a year after a dose of plant-based medicine (psilocybin). Data from many institutions of higher learning are giving hope to many patients. Without education, awareness, and reputable plant-based businesses to supply the quality medicines that people need, the general acceptance of these alternative treatments might as well be a “dream,” considering how long misinformation has been spreading about the use of psychedelics and cannabis as medicine.

WCI Health & WCI Health University’s objective is to use our podcasts and events as educational tools where people can learn more about the alternative health and wellness options available to them. WCI Health also encourages cannabis and other plant medicine-related businesses to advertise and sponsor our events freely without fear of being shut down or unreasonable censorship characteristic of mainstream media and social platforms. Our podcast series highlights the advantages of using Functional Mushrooms, Adaptogens, CBD, cannabinoid products, and other medicinal herbs for your health and well-being. 

WCI helps CBD manufacturers seeking to increase distribution or payment processors targeting Merchants or cannabis users (B2C). WCI educates policymakers who must keep current on essential information relevant to all the major stakeholders, dispensaries, coaches, healthcare professionals, or Colleges & Universities. The WCI Health podcast and events are your one-stop shop for Evidence-based education, Advertisement, and Sponsorship.

WCI Health’s highly skilled clinical pharmacist, Doctor Lola Ohonba, Pharm.D., presents lectures & consultations that are easy to understand. Like many of her clients, Dr. Lola knows what it means to live with pain and a debilitating ailment. She lives with a physical disability and has successfully learned how to manage this condition’s residual pain and discomfort effectively. She applies her knowledge of plant medicine rooted in her indigenous heritage growing up in West Africa (Nigeria) around the ancient cultures, practices & traditions passed down from generation to generation. Dr. Lola can give her clients the best of both worlds as a pharmacist and herbalist.

Leading Group of Cannabinoid Physicians Support First Of Its Kind Study with Researchers From the University of Michigan

Los Angeles, California ( Wednesday Oct 26, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Eastern —

The Physicians Cannabinoid Council, an organization with over 35 renown healthcare professionals as active members, announce their support of a first-of-its-kind cannabinoid research study led by researchers at the University of Michigan and MoreBetter (Releaf App). The study will lay the groundwork for understanding what formulations and dosing regimens could be most efficacious for Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis.

The biggest challenge for healthcare professionals with cannabinoid-based medicine is the lack of evidence in product formulation and dosing. Most published studies only evaluate if cannabis or CBD is effective. This leaves practitioners and patients left to guess and begin a trial-and-error process to find what formulation and dosing work best. In addition to advancing the general knowledge of cannabinoids as a medicine, the results from this study will better educate and equip practitioners and patients.

“We are excited to collaborate with MoreBetter and the University of Michigan. When it comes to the topic of “CBD”, our patients are already taking these products and are “waiting at the finish line” for researchers and medical professionals to catch up with much-needed clinical trials. This study moves the needle forward to provide important data for physicians and patients alike”, says Dr. Dung Trinh, founder of the Physicians CBD Council (PCC).

“The Physicians Cannabinoid Council (PCC) welcomes the opportunity to extend our collaboration with MoreBetter and the University of Michigan for this crucial study. Without valuable research and data on the therapeutic benefits of cannabis-derived products, both doctors and patients navigate with uncertainty”, says Helene Blanchette, President of the PCC. “This is well aligned with our focus on consumer safety, education and cannabis research collaboration; hence we are pleased to participate in the recruiting effort to push this needed study forward.”

Study products have been quality-verified & tested by the PCC, which removes worries for participants. All study products are in the form of tablets and capsules. The study sponsors, LEVEL and Overcome, are providing eligible participants with hundreds of dollars in savings on a 12-week supply of study product. Participants can participate in this study from the comfort and safety of their home by using their smartphone.

Those who complete the study may receive up to $500 in Amazon Gift Cards. Individuals interested in enrolling can do so at

“Pain is one of the most common conditions people use medical cannabis to treat, and the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has concluded that cannabis is effective in pain relief,” says Daniel Kruger, PhD, the study’s Principal Investigator. “This conclusion is just the beginning; we need more research to know how to optimize pain relief with cannabis. This cross-sector partnership is critical for overcoming regulatory barriers to cannabis research and enhancing trust by including independent academic researchers.”

“To become a reliable form of medicine the cannabis industry needs to move beyond strain names and labeling products as indicas, hybrids, and sativas,” says Tyler Dautrich, COO of MoreBetter Ltd., the company behind Releaf App. “Efficacy data focused on product formulations and dosing will allow practitioners and patients to make more informed decisions on where to begin treatment. Laying the groundwork for this to become a reality is one of the many reasons this is an important study.”

“Cannabinoids have a myriad of therapeutic properties, and we’re just starting to define their positive impact on human health,” said LEVEL Founder and CEO Chris Emerson, PhD. “At LEVEL, we’re dedicated to conducting research, pushing the scientific boundaries, and driving consumer education about cannabinoids, which facilitates our unique approach to developing innovative cannabis products. Leveraging real-world clinical evidence on the potential health benefits of cannabis will shape the future of the industry, and LEVEL is excited to participate in this important work.”

We have received great anecdotal reviews as to our Active Relief formulation to date but having a formal study on the product compared to other product formulas is essential for furthering the future of cannabinoid medicine, not just for Overcome but the industry at large,” explained Annie Rouse, Founder of Overcome. “Given our formulary research, we are confident that our product will help the patients in the study overcome pain and inflammation and we look forward to the feedback provided.”

Cannabis Industry Makes Huge Strides in Philadelphia with On-Site Expungement and Job Fair

Fort Lauderdale, Florida ( Monday Oct 3, 2022 @ 1:00 PM Central —, the premier legal cannabis and psychedelics podcast network, proudly sponsored the 5th Annual Cannabis Opportunites Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 23-24, 2022.

Policy & Equity Define 5th Annual Cannabis Opportunities Conference in Philadelphia

Philadelphia, PA ( Wednesday Sep 28, 2022 @ 2:35 PM Central —

On Friday September 23rd and Saturday, September 24th Senator Street hosted the 5th Annual Cannabis Opportunities Conference with the Diasporic Alliance of Cannabis Opportunities during Black Cannabis Week.

“I’m proud to join DACO in convening the 5th Annual Cannabis Opportunities Conference in Philadelphia. Cannabis prohibition will end. It is an issue whose time has come,” said Senator Street “It is the government’s responsibility to ensure that Pennsylvania’s expanding cannabis marketplace and economy are diverse and inclusive. As such we must be intentional about black and brown participation in every facet of the cannabis economy and industry.”

Key sponsors for this event included Black Cannabis Week, Ethos, Minorities for Medical Marijuana, Philadelphia Cannabis Business Association, Pot Profits for Pennsylvanians Project, All Together Now Pennsylvania and, whose broadcast of the policy panels can be found here. Cherron Perry Thomas, founder of Diasporic Alliance of Cannabis Opportunities shared that “Part of the success to this newer cannabis industry is the intentional inclusion of Black and Brown communities. So far, we’ve been an after, many of us are demanding that policy extends beyond the harm that has been done with promotion and the war on drugs. First educating our communities about the opportunities and potential of repairing our communities, is a way to move past the stigma on the real work.”

The two-day conference included policy panels on day one where participants heard from legislators on state and federal Adult Use policy including Lieutenant Governor Fetterman on PA’s Expedited Pardon Program for cannabis convictions. US Senator Cory Booker participated virtually and called it a historic opportunity to right historical wrongs, calling his federal efforts to end cannabis prohibition – with a focus on restorative justice – “a legalization movement that must be about justice, opportunity and accountability.”

Day two included a variety of programming and keynote speakers which included: medical marijuana registration (30), a career fair, Caregiver Education, criminal record expungement (60 individuals), professional work-ready services and workshops on accessing the cannabis industry.

Magnitude Vape Cartridges Expand to Six New States

Chicago, IL, USA ( Thursday Sep 22, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Mountain —

Magnitude from PharmaCann is launching in Illinois and is planned to be available in the coming months in five additional states including Ohio, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, and Pennsylvania.

“As we expand our top selling Magnitude vape into new states, we are delivering to our patients and customers a consistent, trusted product at a competitive price,” said Erika Salgado, Chief Marketing Officer of Verilife. “Magnitude’s high-quality THC extract is selected to complement each strain’s complex flavor profile, enhanced with all-natural terpenes, and offers a consistent and impactful vaping experience.”

Through rigorous extraction testing, the Magnitude taste profile features natural terpenes combined with THC distillate and premier ingredients. Unlike many cartridges in the market today, Magnitudes’s low inlet-hole technology is designed to ensure that every drop of its distillate reaches the user, and none is left in the cartridge’s reservoir.

Two popular offerings will be available in the six new markets:

  • Blueberry Indica Dominant: With a terpene profile including Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Beta-Pinene, the aroma and flavor of Blueberry (born from the strain Blueberry Cookies) is like a dense pine forest that is combined with the intoxicatingly rich aroma of blueberries and other stone fruits.

  • Platinum Jack Sativa Dominant: With a terpene profile including Terpinolene, Beta-Caryophyllene and Beta-Myrcene, Platinum Jack (born from the loved strain Jack Herrer) is thought to be a Sativa Dominant Hybrid that descends from the haze family of strains. A sticky strain with an appealing orange-lemon scent and taste, with hints of pine and earthy notes.

Benefits of the Magnitude vape include:

  • High-quality THC extract enhanced with all-natural terpenes selected to complement each strain’s complex flavor profile and effects for an impactful vaping experience.

  • Big flavor, big hits, and bigger highs. Magnitude vape cartridges contain a unique blend of small batch strain-specific THC distillate.

  • High-tech hardware that delivers a flavorful and unrivaled vapor product.

Magnitude is available at all eight Illinois Verilife locations: Arlington Heights, Chicago (River North), Galena, North Aurora, Ottawa, Romeoville, Rosemont, and Schaumburg. Verilife is operated by PharmaCann Inc., the nation’s largest privately held, vertically integrated cannabis company.
