Well, it’s been 55 days since that faithful Saint Patrick’s Day Eve when word of the California Lockdown started to circulate. I hope you’re doing well! I’m doing pretty dope all things considered.
Writing is going awesome. I had a really fun time with my Mother’s Day Guide that dropped last week. I’ve also had the opportunity recently to cover the effort to get the cannabis industry access to Coronavirus relief programs from the Small Business Administration.
On a more serious note, I covered the ACLU’s updated report on the racial disparity in marijuana arrests continuing across the county. Despite legalization, Black America is 3.64 times more likely to end up in handcuff over cannabis than Caucasians.
I should have an article about the cannabis industry data from last month dropping in the next few days. With America starting to reopen, it looks like April will be the most complete data set on how Coronavirus impacted the cannabis industry. I presume people will be looking at the trends in that data for years to come so it was exciting to get to take a look at it before most.
I’ve smoked some pretty awesome weed in recent weeks. I think it’s the energy around getting ready to launch Devine’s Fine Cannabis Guide in the not too distant future. Please go follow the Instagram page!
Some of my recent favorite pot includes Gold Seal’s Motorbreath, C.R.A.F.T.’s fantastic Wedding Cake, and The Strawnana from Northern Emeralds. They are all absolute heat with fun terpene profiles. The Motorbreath will probably end up being the best pot of lockdown. It was 37% total cannabinoids, 32% THC, and absolute gas.
I already have much of launch strains for the guide picked out, but if you have some wild light dep about to drop let me know. I’m waiting until all of the first round of deps are done before I launch to make sure I have the freshest sungrown options on the list.
Shoutouts to everyone who is contributing on my Patreon page, I appreciate it and all the funds are going towards the guide launch.
