Green Flower is a cannabis media company dedicated to covering the positivity of the cannabis space. Slowly but surely, the cannabis industry is making its way out of the shadows of prohibition. Cannabis has become a household conversation in many places due to the quality of information being made available.

The Cannabis Health Summit, being hosted by Green Flower, is a great example of how media organizations can promote access to knowledge and understanding. This free event will be available online, so that anyone can learn more about the ways in which cannabis can be applied as a medicine.

Uwe Blesching, PhD, to Discuss Mind-Body Medicine

Green Flower has assembled over twenty medical experts who all understand the importance of cannabis education and want to spread scientific evidence about a misunderstood plant. One of these cannabis experts will be Uwe Blesching. As the author of the Cannabis Health Index, Blesching has been relating cannabis therapy to medical conditions in a way that few others have dared approach.

Blesching is a good friend of Cannabis Reports, and has already helped our team immensely when it comes to medical cannabis data. During a recent visit to our office, Blesching gave us a look at what he would be discussing at the first-ever Cannabis Health Summit. The title of his presentation is: “Why do some patients heal, while others don’t?”

The Potential for Emotional and Physical Healing

Cannabis Reports has interviewed Uwe Blesching in the past on many subjects, and we will be making that footage available in the near future. During the Cannabis Health Summit, presented by Green Flower this Saturday and Sunday (Jan. 23-24), Blesching will be discussing cannabis therapy in conjunction with mind-body medicine.


Blesching is capable of providing insights that even those of us well-versed in cannabis may not have realized. The subject of mind-body medicine is rarely brought up in the cannabis community, and yet, there is strong scientific evidence that ignoring an emotional relationship with your medicine can significantly reduce the potential for healing.

Blesching will be giving his speech on Saturday January 23rd at 2:45pm PST. Make sure to register for free at GreenFlowerMedia.com.

Clinical vs. Anecdotal Evidence: Why Not Both?

There is a misconception that cannabis will remain in a legal gray area until there is abundant clinical evidence demonstrating the molecular efficacy of cannabinoids. But truly, there are decades worth of clinical studies that have been ignored by the United States government.


The success of medical cannabis is actually founded on mountains of anecdotal evidence. There are hundreds of stories of cancer patients returning from their oncologists with “No Evidence of Disease.” Recently, there has been a great migration of families leaving their homes to travel to legal cannabis markets in order to supply their seizing children with relief.

It is the emotional evidence from patients and caretakers that drives lawmakers to shift their thinking. Of course, more cannabis research is needed if we hope to keep moving forward, but we must not forget the importance of every person’s unique relationship with cannabis.

Tune in to the Cannabis Health Summit to hear directly from Uwe Blesching about the benefits of recognizing cannabis as a recreational, medicinal, and spiritual tool.

Smoke Reports Debuts a World of Data at The New West Summit Cannabis Technology Conference

The New West Summit was the first conference devoted to cannabis technology and media. As the cannabis industry evolves, it is important that we all work together to guide the growth in a very responsive way. Jim McAlpine, Dean Arbit, David Downs, and the other event organizers all did a fantastic job of bringing people together from the entire spectrum of the industry to discuss the future of cannabis business.


The event was incredibly welcoming, and the opportunities for collaboration were apparent from the beginning. There were several different aspects of cannabis technology being presented, including companies building tools for lab testing, tracking, networking, branding, advertising, production, consumption, supply chain, and compliance.


The Smoke Reports team was thrilled with the opportunity to be a sponsored exhibitor and show the world all of the cannabis tools we are creating for consumers, businesses, educators, policymakers, and other technologists. Our founder and CEO David Drake was honored to participate as a panelist discussing cannabis software trends, which can be viewed in a full-length video available below.


The Smoke Reports Network Continues to Grow

Smoke Reports has been offering cannabis data through our open API for just over eight months. In that time, over 350 different developer groups have been building software, websites, and apps around our foundation of data. We successfully designed our display booth for the event to showcase how accessible our data is for consumers, businesses, and developers.


At the event, we began relationships with a lot of incredibly cool brands that are each building something progressive for cannabis. We will continue to follow the progress of excellent cannabis companies including MyDX, Rad Labs, Steep Hill, Cashinbis, CHEX, and  Elem-n-tal Digital.


Our folders were a huge hit, and we left the event with only a handful left over. We wanted the materials we made available to showcase not only our brand and features, but also the awesome producers and dispensaries working with us to improve cannabis information.


David Drake, Founder and CEO of Smoke Reports, Shines on Software Panel

A key theme that is discussed at nearly every cannabis event is transparent technology that will connect the industry with the community. Our founder and CEO David Drake was among three other panelists giving their views on the power of good cannabis software. Below are some great clips that highlight the Smoke Reports mission, and the inspiration and dedication behind our tools and network.
