Hemp Embassy Headlines Issue 549 March 3 2023

Welcome to this week in the HEMP Headlines

Are we winning yet?

Hello again friends of our little green friend,

On Wednesday the 1st in the Nimbin Town Hall, The Greens held a public forum on there upcoming lodgement for legalising cannabis in NSW parliament.
I enjoyed it overall and cant really fault them for their approach.
I was particularly interested in their advice on Cannabis Clubs, I haven’t got the hard facts with me but it was suggested having groups of up to 12 with a max plant volume of 200?

Don’t quote me on that, that would be pretty great though.
The Greens team seem very competent, Adam Guis is our member for Lismore, I look forward to seeing his face more and the team overall. I think they will really be sticking it to Labour.
The forum was recorded so hopefully it will be uploaded for me to share with you.

I popped a couple of pics from the day below the intro.
Remember Vote 1 for Legalise Cannabis and number the rest how you see fit, all those numbers do count.

Medican was also on last weekend after a long build up.

My first one, very chill but it was a non stop learning event, heaps of great info from every aspect you can imagine.
If you missed it, our friend, Disco Sista, masterfully recorded them and are avaiable for public viewing on Disco Sista’s Medican Youtube Channel hereThanks Sista.

Next up for the Hemp Embassy is HHI Expo Brisbane, Saturday, 25-26th March, 2023

Michael Balderstone and I were chatting medical a couple of days ago and he showed me this website.
I think its a great idea as long as its completely directed at the legal market.


Cannabiz did a bit of story here

Also a good general story, “Cannabis For Concentration”.
I’m sure many of us recognise that strain plays a huge part here but as a bit of an ex-fitness nut I can definitely without a doubt say weed as a far more safer, effective and enjoyable pre-workout.
If you’re interested try a Sour Diesel or a Gorilla Glue Strain, great for pain management and energy.

Big Shout out to all the Candidates who are putting themselves up for NSW election in love of our little green friend.
You can see many of our candidates here but will hopefully have a better looking list to provide you next week.

personal thank you to Gail, Michael, Suzette, Craig (and everyone else!) for making this happen. They’re there everyday making sure we ticked all right boxes and spell checked everything “gloabally” (sorry coulnt’t help myself Gail lol).
I doubt most people have any idea how much it all is to deal with let alone the politics or money side. Not bad for a bunch of, pardon the slang “Stoners”.

Thanks for reading, catch ya next week for more good Hemp and Cannabis News!

PS. If you would like to contribute in any way please let me know, I encourage it!

Don’t forget to check upcoming events.
