A Cannabis-Business Park Covering 1 Million Square Feet Is Coming to Massachusetts
California is at the forefront of the US medical marijuana industry, and weed’s positive impact on the state’s economy has been huge, generating $2.8 billion in 2015, with $6.5 billion annually expected by 2020.

WOW!!! What a day! 420 Denver Rally was nuts!! Believe it or not? It was my very first time attending! Turned out pretty fricken amazing! Regardless of the stormy weather and some hiccups. There were many moments that I believe we all looked at today as profoundly impacting. A day we will never forget. And how truly BIG of hearts we have as the WOW family.
“I want to give a HUGE thanks to Anthony!!! My son had a grand Mal seizure at your tent at the 420 ralley tonight…You stepped up and helped out so much…I can’t thank you and your staff enough for all the help you had given us…Thank you all so much for everything again…I’ll definitely keep in touch…” – Stasha Fleshman

What are the odds that a young man with his parents has a grand mal seizure at our CBD booth? His mother beside herself, we give her a bottle of CBD with the hopes that it helps him. He is okay yet the paramedics on bikes and the rent-a-cops were kinda useless. Smh. Then a tug on hearts, we meet an amazing young fella named Lee who’s homeless with his dog Caramel. He told us a beautiful story of how she found him on the streets. He feeds and cares for his dog before himself. That’s love. We all pitched in to make sure they had some extra shirts to stay warm and gathered money to give him because he reminded us, that not everyone is what they seem. Take some time to give thanks to the people that mean something to you in your life. Be kind to others and remember how blessed we are everyday.

Learn About Cannabidiol or CBD
The Medical Uses of CBD are Numerous… The active compound in hemp is commonly referred to as cannabidiol or CBD which is unique in a sense that unlike THC, it is not psychoactive in nature and hence enables you to avoid getting high. This difference is primarily due to THC acting directly to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in order to stimulate them while CBD holds a rather indirect action on the receptors…

Grow for Vets is a national, nonpartisan, 501(c)(19) non-profit organization headquartered in Colorado.
WOWI is currently providing its services to a 38 acre Pueblo cannabis farm that is nearing the completion of its first production stage that results in cannabis production that will evidently produce conservative revenues of $560,000 per month on a wholesale basis.
Anthony C Russo, WOWI CEO, points out that this 38 acre farm is fully MED compliant, equipped with 10’ wire top fenced, remote security system, fully functioning sprinkler system, and a state of the art reverse osmosis system for water purification. The property currently has structures available for administration, storage space, and indoor harvesting operations. The farm just finished plans for a state of the art FarmTek greenhouse (10,000 square feet) and has received approval by the regional building department to begin construction. The greenhouse allows year round harvesting and is a three bay structure all proposed for flowering of product. This facility will place it among the largest single facility growers in Colorado.
To date, an investment has been made of over $1 million in the land, buildings, greenhouse, equipment, security equipment, permits and licenses. The 10,000 square foot greenhouse is the final item to be completed before WOWI can lease its portion of the investment to a licensed grower for cannabis production. Completion is scheduled for late-September of this year, with initial production in November, allowing for a 90-day grow cycle. Such production will generate license and management fees for WOWI.
The initial growing process will begin in early September, thirty days before the plants need to be moved into the greenhouse. Revenues will ramp for several months until full production is achieved in January 2017.
A new report by ArcView Market Research found legal cannabis sales jumped 17% in 2015 and are predicting it to grow by an astounding 25% this year. That means the legal cannabis industry will reach $6.7 billion in total U.S. sales in 2016.
