Recreation Is around the corner!

Here is what will change in January:

 Who can purchase cannabis at Magnolia Wellness after January 1?

·       We are still waiting for approval to serve adults 21 years or older, but feel confident this will come in time. Stay tuned!

·       Patients 18 years or older who have a valid California doctor’s recommendation and a government issued photo I.D. may continue to purchase medicinal cannabis.

 

What are the advantages to remaining a medical patient?

·       Medical cannabis patients will be taxed at a lower rate than adult users. This includes an exemption from sales tax (under certain circumstances) and a lowered business license tax of 5% for medical, rather than 10% for adult users.

·       Edibles will be limited to 100mg per package for both adult and medical users, although tinctures and like products will be available in 1000mg packages for adult users and 2000mg units for medical patients.

·       Not all suppliers will have licenses to serve the adult use market, but the regulations enforcing this do not start until mid-2018.

 

What are these A and M licenses about?

·       An "A" license allows businesses to serve adult cannabis users.

·       An "M" license allows businesses to supply only medical marijuana users.

·       Magnolia Wellness will secure both "A” and “M" licenses, so will serve both groups.

·       Cultivators, manufacturers, and distributors have to get either “A”, “M,” or both licenses, too. After July 1, 2018, each will be limited to supplying products only to other companies with identical licenses.

 

How much cannabis can I purchase?

·       Prop 64 allows for up to six (6) mature cannabis plants, one (1) ounce of flower, and eight (8) grams of concentrates to be purchased each day by adult users.

·       Medical limitations are subject to the same limits, unless their doctor’s recommendation states that an individual need more medicine to meet their needs.

 

Can I use cannabis anywhere?

·       It is still illegal to use cannabis in public outside of designated areas. 

·       Do not medicate and drive. 

·       The best place to use cannabis is at safe at home.

Magnolia's first Cannabis Farmers Market

Patients from all over the Bay came to celebrate Magnolia CEO Debby Goldsberry's birthday and enjoy a one-of-a-kind event. The weather was cool and pleasant outside, while inside The Randy Moore Trio kept folks in a mellow but upbeat mood. Flower vendors Sparkle Shoes and Sun Roots were in attendance to show off the best of indoor and outdoor buds, while edible vendors Utopia Farms, Clarified Confections and Leisure Life were on hand to sample their wares to patients. Extract and Cartridge providers Beezle, First Class Concentrates, Greenrock and Absolute Extracts were also providing patient samples in the onsite consumption areas as well as trading chip tokens for purchase in the market. The old-fashioned, blue and white clay  custom poker chips provided by ChipLab from www.chiplab.com were available in the dispensary. Each cost $5, worth the same amount in the market. They helped make our Farmers Market a success! Our next Cannabis Farmers Market will be on 420, come by and join the festivities!

Magnolia Stands with our Veterans

Roman Araya of the Weed for Warriors Project visits Magnolia to speak with veterans. 

Roman Araya of the Weed for Warriors Project visits Magnolia to speak with veterans. 

Here at Magnolia, we understand that military veterans need our support. Vets face numerous issues upon returning home from tours of duty abroad, the most serious of which include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a high rate of suicide. 

If you're a veteran looking to talk with other vets, or if you're just looking for help navigating the maze of services and benefits available, Magnolia is proud to announce two meetings just for you.

Tonight, Monday, August 8th, at 6:30pm, veterans are encouraged to join a Veterans Support Group with Ryan Miller of EVAC. The group is being held at the Gateway Incubator, located at 330 2nd St in Oakland. The group will meet the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month.

We are also planning a general group with Weed for Warriors where veterans can get answers to questions about everything particular to post-military life.  This group will be here at Magnolia on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, with a time still TBD. 

Please attend the group tonight at Gateway to find out more about our veterans services and how cannabis might be right for you.

School Supplies Drive a great success

As part of National Night Out on August 2nd, Magnolia Oakland organized a school supplies drive to support children in the local community as they head back to class later this month. 

More than 60 school kids took advantage of Magnolia's giveaway, which included backpacks, folders, notebooks, pencil, crayons, and more. We even threw in an ice cream sundae bar to make sure the events wasn't just about getting ready for school — after all, summer vacation isn't over yet! 

We want to thank the local West Oakland community for turning out with your kids! Let's do it again next year, shall we?

Buzzfeed: Whoopi & Maya works for menstrual pain

Any company can say that their product relieves pain and cramps, but it's up to patients to decide whether or not the product really works.  Whoopi & Maya, a line of cannabis infused products created by celebrity Whoopi Goldberg and Om Edibles founder, Maya Elizabeth, is aimed squarely at relieving menstrual pains. But does it really work?

Well, Buzzfeed put Whoopi and Maya's products to the test last week, and the results were conclusive: this stuff really works! Here is one woman's testimonial after trying the Whoopi and Maya Savor Raw Cacao spread:

On a particularly rough emotional day, I ate a tablespoon of the cacao and was able to go CLOTHES SHOPPING. This was on a day where I would normally just want to sit on my couch, eat ice cream, and cry while watching Titanic. I bought crop tops! CROP TOPS! This felt like a huge victory to me. I had one outburst the next day while using the tincture, but only one outburst compared to my norm was another victory in my book. It was so easy to just drop it in my drink and go about my day, yet notice a huge change overall. These products allowed me to exist while helping me maintain my emotions. I definitely recommend trying them. 

The Buzzfeed video has already gotten over 1.5 million views on YouTube. Enjoy!
