TOGETHER WITH

THE BIG IDEA

Hi all, 

Happy Tuesday! We’re now publishing on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

In case you missed it, WeedWeek got a redesign and now has some new features, including High Society, where we publish photos from industry events.  (They’re all the way at the bottom.)

Between here and there, we’ve got some big stories: 

  • What brands need to know about Delta-8 THC
  • Cannabis Hyperemesis Syndrome is beginning to look like a crisis for the industry
  • A master drug writer’s new book

Send thoughts, advice and tips to hello@weedweek.net.

And thanks for your interest,

Alex Halperin

Editor and publisher

WEEDWEEK HIGH SOCIETY -- 7/13/21

In recent weeks, the cannabis world has been catching up as everyone makes plans for world domination.
