Get Loud: An Introduction to Cannabis 

Written by  

Cannabis, weed, ganja, marijuana, pot, budthe plant goes by many names. William Shakespeare had it right when Juliet said, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” For the sake of professionalism and out of respect for a plant that has been used medicinally by humans for millennia, we are only going to refer to it as cannabis. For thousands of years, humans have cultivated cannabis all over the world, from the Himalayas to South America. It has only been within the last 40 to 50 years that we have taken a heavy scientific interest in the plant, even though it was named by the scientific community all the way back in 1753.

The hope is that cannabis, CBD, and all the extracts related to it will continue to change the aesthetics industry for the better. Along with that change, we are compelled as experts to advocate, educate, and promote best practices with any ingredient, and cannabis is no different.
