• WM Strains Madness: Monday madness begins with 32 stains facing off
    And the competition is well underway as the two wild card slots are now voted in. Congratulations to Purple Punch and Jack Herer for making it into two of the 8th seeds where they will face up against the 1st seeds, Biscotti and Acapulco Gold, respectively.  And thanks to everyone who voted in wild cards on Sunday. There were more than 1,030 submissions, many of which were expected (Jack Herer, SFV OG, Tangie), some of which were less than expected (Sunday Driver, Famous OG), and some that were out of left field (a decent amount of you really like Gary Payton).  A quick note on the submissions, we were advised against including any strains that could run up against some trademark infringement. This included a strain named after the hero of a classic space opera and some strains named after candy and cereal. Sorry, but that's the weed world we live in.  Quick thing: don't forget to vote on Weedmaps' Instagram stories. Polls will stay open until Tuesday 4:20 p.m. PST.  And with that, let's dive into the 16 first-round matchups and the 32 strains competing.   Shelf 1 (1) Biscotti v. (8) Purple Punch  Biscotti is a clear number 1 and favorite among weed enthusiasts. Developed by the iconic Cookies Fam Genetics, founded by rapper Berner and grower Jigga, Biscotti is a descendant from GSC, Gelato #25, and South Florida OG. This strain has reached icon status in the last several years and isn't likely to go down without a fight.  Purple Punch is the strain that volunteered as tribute. Not that I'm trying to write Purple Punch's early obituary, but it would be a stunning upset to see it takedown Biscotti. But a couple of you felt it deserved a shot, and everyone loves to see an underdog. Do I smell an upset? Maybe, but it won't be easy.  Winner: TBD (2) Sour Diesel v. (7) Kush Mints Several of you predicted Sour Diesel going all the way, and I have to admit it's not a bad bet. Sour Diesel is one of those storied strains from the 90s weed scene that not only garners respect from longtime stoners and growers but manages to stay relevant among a sea of new strains and trends. But make no mistake, Kush Mints is not to be trifled with. ... read more

  • A Guide to Buying Cannabis in Missouri
    While neither the Department of Health and Senior Services or any of the dispensaries they've licensed have confirmed opening dates, online sources speculate a mid-2020 launch of Missouri's legal cannabis industry. Keep an eye on the DHSS website for the latest updates and regulatory news. In the meantime, here's what you should know about buying cannabis in Missouri. What are the legal limits? Patients and caregivers with a valid medical marijuana ID card issued by the DHSS may purchase and possess up to 4 ounces of flower and up to 8 grams of concentrates at a time, roughly a 60-day supply.  Patients can also cultivate their own plants in their home. They can grow up to six flowering plants each, in addition to six male plants (that don't flower) and six clones grown from clippings, up to 18 total. To home-cultivate, patients must apply and pay for a separate cultivation ID card.  Individuals can obtain a medical marijuana ID card by receiving an official recommendation from a licensed, Missouri-based physician. This recommendation certifies that the patient has a qualifying condition that would be aided by medical cannabis use. Full details of qualifying conditions can be found on the DHSS website. Patients must send the recommendation and completed application to the DHSS via its online application portal within 30 days of receipt. The application fee costs $25. A cultivation ID card costs an additional $100 and must be requested in the original application. Patients may also designate a caregiver, who applies for a registered medical marijuana ID card separately. A caregiver is an individual the patient designates to purchase, possess, and administer medical marijuana on his or her behalf. A patient can assign up to two caregivers, and a caregiver can have up to three patients.  Parents must provide consent for patients under age 18 to apply for a registration card. In a caregiver/patient relationship, only one person may have a cultivator license. How do I buy cannabis in Missouri?  Patients and caregivers with a valid ID card can purchase medical marijuana from licensed Missouri dispensaries. As such, qualifying patients in other states will be unable to buy medical cannabis in Missouri though possession is allowed with an out-of-state medical marijuana card or equivalent. Dispensaries will likely feature a limited supply of ... read more
