WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 1, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe opens today, officially marking the end of cannabis prohibition in California. Lowell Cafe is the first restaurant in America where guests can openly consume cannabis. It is a farm-to-table restaurant designed to reflect the complementary relationship between cannabis and cuisine.
Lowell Cafe is a welcoming space for the canna-curious and cannabis connoisseurs alike. This first of its kind restaurant includes Tableside Flower Service (akin to a sommelier), where a Lowell Farms' Flower Host will educate guests on cannabis and provide recommendations for enjoyment. The decor is a modern, lush indoor/outdoor oasis with artisanal touches and a thoughtful use of natural materials, including upcycled street lights and vintage railing.
The kitchen is helmed by Chef Andrea Drummer, who designed a menu to enrich your cannabis high. The restaurant's cuisine will feature dishes curated towards the heightened effects of THC. An advocate for the legalization of cannabis, Chef Drummer has gained a wealth of knowledge working with local activists and allies, while innovating cuisine around the cannabis plant.
"I'm humbled to be part of the team paving the way for this dining experience, and creating a menu unlike anything guests have encountered before. You'll find fresh seasonal dishes and beloved comfort foods - there's something for all dietary preferences too. Flavors and senses will be enhanced by offerings from our flower menu," said Chef Drummer.
Helping to bring the experience and aesthetic to life are brothers Mark and Jonnie Houston of Houston Hospitality. As pillars of nightlife, they are transforming Lowell Cafe into a highly curated destination filled with unexpected surprises.
"We focus on design to create ambiance because we want guests to immerse themselves. To elevate our concepts, we also integrate entertainment and/or art at our venues for a multi-sensory and -dimensional experience," said Mark and Jonnie Houston.
Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe is the first business in America granted a fully legal cannabis consumption license. The restaurant was awarded its license first out of over 300 applicants who applied for eight licenses from the City of West Hollywood. There hasn't been anything like this in existence for over 100 years. Through this trailblazing journey, Lowell Cafe honors the revolutionary minds that came before it, and looks forward to the ongoing end of cannabis prohibition.
SEATTLE, Sept. 17, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Hemp and cannabis growers can now verify that the products they order from seed producers are both certified and authentic and not inferior substitutes.
Tag-it Tech Inc. and TruTag Technologies Inc. have co-developed an "on product" tracking system for use by seed producers and growers called the Natural Tracking System® (NTS®). The revolutionary seed tracking system applies invisible organic coded micro-taggants mixed with a coating directly to the surface of seeds. Once applied, these tags can easily be read using a cell phone that verifies the authentic origin of seeds in seconds. No sample preparation or lab analyses is required.
"Illegal products are a serious and growing problem facing the hemp, and cannabis industry," says Karl Colder, Retired DEA Special Agent. "Legitimate licensed companies are suffering millions of dollars in losses and State sales tax revenues are impacted negatively as well," says Colder.
States implementing licensed hemp and cannabis programs are currently utilizing tracking systems that rely on antiquated technologies. Barcodes and RFIDs on product packaging effectively track inventory and sales but fail to prevent many illegal activities because they can easily be copied, altered, disabled or separated from hemp and cannabis products.
"Our NTS® system is next generation technology and the industry needs it now," says Tag-it Tech CEO, Paul Schutt. "Micro-taggants are impossible to remove from the products they track and using physical and digital anchors is revolutionary. Our technology is invisible to the naked eye, can't be copied, and anyone can read it with a cell phone in seconds, making it superior in every way to all other tracking systems."
Tag-It Tech's proprietary Natural Tracking System® (NTS®) utilizes current model cell phones to read the coded micro-taggants applied to seeds. The NTS® is built on Google Trillian, a secure ledger-based relational data platform that utilizes GPS mapping and attaches real time digital anchors each time products are scanned for authenticity. The platform is user friendly and fully expandable, allowing the addition of other products, such as concentrates, isolates, capsules, edibles, vape canisters and packaging. The NTS® provides extreme functionality, allowing any amount of data to be captured and relayed to product exporters and importers, as well as law enforcement agencies. Additionally, the NTS® can be fully tailored for each use, securely integrating customer ERPs, state track & trace systems, and provincial, federal and international databases.
Tag-it Tech's NTS® provides instantaneous authentication of product origin and ownership enabling product quality control, protection against IP and brand identity theft, and transparent access to product information.
California Based Lifestyle & Cannabis Brand, Cookies, To Launch Exclusive "Gary Payton" Strain Named After Hall Of Fame Basketball Player
"Gary Payton" - produced as part of a joint venture with Powerzzz Genetics - is available now at Cookies retail locations
SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Cookies, the leading lifestyle and cannabis brand in North America, is pleased to announce the launch of "Gary Payton," a unique strain of cannabis named after the legendary Seattle SuperSonics and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame player, Gary Payton. The exclusive deal, which includes the licensing of Gary Payton's name and image, is part of a joint venture with Powerzzz Genetics, creator of this particular strain.
"Kenny & J just finished a pheno hunt with some of our new favorite crosses. We all sat down, as usual, and started to smoke through the new flower. The #20 stood out big time and naturally Kenny called it 'That Gary Payton,'" says Berner, Cookies founder and CEO. "Lots of people have been waiting on the Snowman and the Y, so the cross was instantly hyped. We spread the #20 out with our friends and everyone shared it on social media tagging 'Gary Payton'. Oddly enough, Gary and I had mutual friends who set up a meeting in Oakland. The vibe was right and we both decided to change the game together. Think about it: this is like the Wheaties box for the weed game and we were the first to pop it off. What makes it best is the bag behind it is so fire."
"Cookies and Gary Payton both having roots in Seattle make this collaboration special," says Gary Vaynerchuk, Partner at Green Street. "It's a first for someone like Gary (Payton) with such an accomplished athletic career to have their own cannabis strain and this really shows how open he is to completely new business and branding opportunities. Marketing for a cannabis brand has so much regulation, and connecting a leading brand with someone who is culturally relevant is a smart move for them both."
"Gary Payton" is now available at Cookies retail locations throughout California and Cookies retailers in Michigan will release "Gary Payton" in August.
Cookies was founded in 2012 by Berner, the prolific Bay Area rapper and entrepreneur, and his partner Jigga, Bay Areacultivator and breeder. The combination of new genetics, the internet, music and being one of the first companies to establish an identity and streetwear company based on the brand represents a priceless time that may never come back. With the music industry backing Cookies and social media and YouTube vlogs documenting the growth of Cookies and breeding projects, the community was able to take that ride with the brand which build a grassroots cult following.
Today, Cookies is one of the most respected and top-selling cannabis brands in California and is globally recognized, amassing a stable of over 50 cannabis varieties and product lines including indoor, outdoor and sungrown flower, pre-rolls, gel caps and vape carts. With two flagship Cookies stores in Los Angeles on Melrose and Maywood and a third location in Redding, Cookies' overall vertical integration and seed to sale business allows for complete quality control at every step from cultivation and production to retail experience.
In 2015, the brand's hip-hop credibility effortlessly expanded Cookies into streetwear and today offers a range of products for both men and women in the apparel and accessories categories as well as a curated selection of smoking supplies.
