The First Cannabis Business Reality Show will debut Aug 15 

Cannabis entrepreneur Big Mike of Advanced Nutrients is releasing the first-ever cannabis business competition show called The Next Marijuana Millionaire

A group of entrepreneurs will compete for a $1million prize and a chance to partner n  with Big Mike.

Viewers will be able to tune in on major streaming networks and devices. 

The Discovery Channel will also release its show “Growing Belushi” with celebrity Jim Belushi that follows along his journey in growing his own cannabis business. 

It’s set to premiere not long after The Next Marijuana Millionaire on August 19th. 

Israel will soon be seeing its first-ever medical cannabis center in Tel Aviv this November

The center will house a medical cannabis consultation project called ‘Tree of Knowledge’, a pharmacy and clubhouse

The center primarily helps patients suffering from a variety of conditions navigate getting their medical cannabis license.

Patients will be able to fill their cannabis prescriptions, network with other patients, and learn more in-depth about medical cannabis. 

Clinical cannabis research is coming to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

The school struck a 10 year deal with cannabis company Parallel and received a $3million grant to research medical cannabis treatment for sickle cell disorders, chronic pain, and anxiety. 

This is the first-ever state program that pairs academic research with a company that is both a grower and dispensary.

With their powers combined, we hopefully will be able to see winning results.

We have all been long awaiting proper US cannabis research with decent specimen studies.
