LAS VEGAS, NV – MJBizCon 2017 in Las Vegas Nevada was something to take in. Honestly, after attending the Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo in Arizona, I thought I’d seen what the marijuana industry had to offer, but I was wrong. The Marijuana Business Conference & Expo held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada was so much bigger I couldn’t have taken it all in if I’d stayed for a week.
So, I took my partner in crime, (my brother, a horticulturist) along with me to cover the agricultural side of the convention. In the two fast-paced days we were there, here’s a sample of what we saw, talked about and got super stoked on to share with you.
Top 10 list for the MJBizCon 2017 in Las Vegas:
During the 2017 MJBizCon I realized that the cannabis industry is BOOMING, on all sides. Now, it’s not all about getting high. There are so many things that the cannabis plant offers, that people have almost normalized it. Like any other potent herb, or medicinal plant, cannabis must be used carefully, but there are so many ways to use it! Check this out …
SoHum Living Soils. Growing plants isn’t just for people who live in states where weed is legal. You cannot grow marijuana plants everywhere, but you can grow any type of plant you want at home including natural sources of essential oils like rosemary, lavender, basil, and so many more. While seeds are cheap, growing plants is pretty easy when you have the right soil. So, count on So Hum Living Soils to offer a just-add-water solution to your growing needs.

By adding thin layers of this unique grow booster for plants, you can keep the bugs away from your plants and improve drainage in any pot for healthier plants. Don’t plant anything without adding Growstone
Sacred Mind & Body. Hemp oil is a great source for pain relief. Sacred Mind & Body is a company that makes all-natural hemp oil products, that are now FDA-evaluated as safe for use. So that means you can order a Sacred Mind & Body cannabis product anywhere in the U.S. Choose any cannabis product offered on their Sacred menu including personal lubricant, massage oil, Epsom salt soaks, muscle relief soaks with ancient superfoods like Acai berry, and dead sea salt.

Organabus. Cannabidiol is also known as CBD – one of the main pain-relieving compounds in cannabis. Organabus offers organic CBD products including vapor liquid, tinctures, edibles, candy, and more! Organabus also offers express shipping! NOTE: All Organabus products are 100% non-psychoactive and ultra-helpful for those who struggle with chronic pain and want another option from pharmaceuticals.
CBD SeltzerFizz. When you are out on a run, or you want to relax after taking a run, hike, trip, or ride on the mountain, adding a CBD fizzy to your drink can help. Toss in a SeltzerFizz to your juice or just drink it with water for 99.96% pure CBD in a variety of flavors.
GoodShip. These marijuana edibles are made in Seattle, and are loaded with canni-deliciousness! So, hop on the GoodShip with refreshing Peppermint Patties, Jellies, Chocolate, Cookies, Brownies, and Pastilles. They are oh-so tasty, trust me.
CRATIV. When you have marijuana around the house you need to be careful with it. Sometimes your pet can get into it, or your kids can want to try and play with the packaging from a dispensary and open a container. So, just because your state uses cannabis as medicine doesn’t mean that the packaging is always childproof. Pick up your own child resistant cannabis packages with CRATIV. Designed to be less enticing as a toy for kids than regular cannabis packaging, CRATIV boxes are harder to open, with a pinch and lift hardshell design. So skip conventional baggies, or pop-top canisters, CRATIV boxes are a marijuana users must-have!
JuJu Royal. The Marley way of life is one that most people recognize. Cannabis infusion as a lifestyle is something synonymous with the Marley legacy, and today many of the Marley family members are working in the cannabis industry. Julian Marley offers JuJu Royal Ultra-Premium Cannabis to feed your soul! Check out the entire JuJu Royal line of cannabis, and products to get IRIE.
RYAH. This is the first vaporizer that lets you track and control how much you inhale so that you always get reliable dosages. Designed to be more like a SmartVape than any other vaporizer on the market today, RYAH is a vaping experience that includes airflow sensory, a diffused mouthpiece, LED indicator, medical grade materials, and a capsule chamber that accommodates both oil, and dry herb capsules. You’re in control with RYAH – so, set the temperature, your dose, and track your statistics with the RYAH app. There’s no more guesswork in vape dosing any more!
CB Scientific. With so many questions about what’s actually inside any type of cannabis product, from edibles, to CBD vaporizers, you may want to know for sure. So, get your own professional results on CBD and THC content of any product at home with the CB Scientific test kit. Able to deliver quick, accurate results so you can always know the percentage of cannabinoids in any product. CB Scientific also makes a smart device that works like a Pain-Patch using Nano delivery for fast topical absorption of CBD, and rapid pain relief. Try it!
BONUS: Essential oils are the concentrated phyto-chemicals found in plants, which is also known as plant “essence.” You can make your own extractions of plant essences with an at-home extractor from Mighty Fast Herbal Infuser. Don’t miss the chance to make infusions at home in your own kitchen. It couldn’t be easier.

Packed with 110+ speakers, 18,00 cannabis leaders, and investors, plus 678 exhibitors in the hall space this event was popin’. I’ll bring you more from the event in the upcoming weeks and months about all the stuff I picked up from the growing community of cannabis. Until then…
