3 facts about the cannabis industry
If you’re new to the cannabis world you’re probably wondering, “what does weed do when you smoke it?” or “what’s the difference between THC and CBD?”. Well, consider your questions answered in the next 3 facts about the cannabis industry you need to know about.

Difference between THC & CBD

Probably one of the first things you should know about weed before you consume it—whether you’re smoking or eating it—is the difference between CBD and THC. Both are chemical compounds that occur in cannabis, and even though they’re both similar in chemical structure to your body’s endocannabinoids, they have vastly different effects on the human body.
High THC strains are the ones that’ll give you that euphoric high/buzz//stoned sensation. Marijuana strains that have high levels of CBD, like ACDC and Cannatonic, are known for their positive effects on anxiety and pain.

Cannabis is the fastest growing industry

Love pot? You’re not alone. In fact, this year cannabis took the crown for the fastest growing industry, leaving medicine and tech rolling in the dust behind it. There has been a 445% job growth in listings in the marijuana industry according to the CEO of Zip Recruiter. Currently, the city with the most job opportunities in cannabis is in Los Angeles, CA. If you don’t like the idea of having to physically work with the plant, fear not! There are many opportunities available in sales, graphics and social media as well.

Cannabis was the first thing sold online

That’s right! A dime bag of weed was the very first thing sold and bought online. In the 1970’s, a group of students at Stanford University made a commercial transaction online using the school’s artificial intelligence system. The baggie was sold to the counterpart system at the Massachusettes Institute of Technology. With not a care of what the effects were to your liver or what the long-term effects of weed were. College students living the dream is what we see!
