Chasing Gelato’s Story: The Sherbinski Sitdown

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with the breeder of the world class cannabis strain Gelato for Cannabis Now Magazine’s print edition. The piece has now made its way to the web so I just thought I’d share the true origins here also.

Mr. Sherbinski was a pleasure to interview. He’ll be remembered among the best urban breeders of his generation due to efforts like Sunset Sherbert and Gelato. I had the chance to peek at the most developed offerings from the family, Mochi and Gello.

You can hear the story below and read the article over on Cannabis Now. I have some more big stories to come in the months ahead and look forward to sharing them with everyone.

As always thanks for reading my stuff. You can see what cannabis stories I’m reading and what I’m smoking out of over on the GreenState.com daily briefing and review sections. For my continued weekly policy coverage from across the US and beyond head over to CannabisNow.com

Weekly Vlog Kick Off

Hey All!

I hope the young summer is treating you well. I’m kicking off a weekly recap of the headlines I find interesting and the stories I’m covering. Here is the first installment!

Hope you enjoyed! I’m going to be trying to drop these on Mondays!

Happy New Year Champions!

Hope everyone made the best of the tail-end of 2016!

I had a great time covering the cannabis industry for some amazing new publications this year including Cannabis Now Magazine, 7×7, Marijuana.com, and The San Francisco Chronicle. What a ride it was watching the battle for cannabis progress unfold over the year, eventually seeing major action at the polls and in state capital buildings.

Next year I’m excited to watch the largest marketplace in the world, and its greatest producers, develop into something special. It will be a rocky road for sure,  be it NorCal vs. Socal, wholesale prices on outdoor demanding less than a buck a gram, or the hill vs. the valley. These are only a few of the puzzle pieces of the tale of 2017 yet to be penned, I look very forward to seeing how it all comes together!

If you want to keep up to date with what I’m writing you can follow me on twitter @JimiDevine, or check out my author page on Cannabis Now where I’m currently a Staff Writer putting up a few things a week.

Have a great 2017!

 

 

I’m Moderating Two Panels At New West Summit This Weekend!

Hope Thursday is treating you fantastic!

Tomorrow I’ll moderate my first of two panels at New West Summit. It’ll focus on the social impact of lab testing which can’t be underestimated. Back in the day a big softball argument on the pro-prohibition side was, “We don’t even know what’s in the stuff, chemicals, toxins.” Thanks to labs like Steep Hill, SC, and CW, we no longer have to hear that long winded argument. Diving into the different aspects of lab testing and where they’re going will be fantastic.

On Saturday, I’ll be moderating a Tech to 420 panel following up on the one I hosted last year. Keith McCarty from Eaze returns for his second year on this one, he’s been up to a lot since the last New West Summit so it will be great to hear the recap from him. The other panelists on this one are also great and I look forward to diving down the weed tech rabbit hole with them

 

Go check out the rest of New West Summit 2.0, it’s sure to be a great time and very informative.
