Adult-Use Cannabis in 2018 — The 11th Hour: Part 2
The Medicine Box Team
Where ever we are going, we are going together! 2017 was quite the year for our team, tightening our relationships with each other and developing our common vision. If you haven’t had the chance yet to read Part 1: Reflecting on Cannabis in 2017, check it out for some of our end-of-year reflections. Where we have been certainly shapes where we are going, but it does not define it.
Quality over quantity has always been important for Medicine Box, and we will continue to uphold that standard as the market evolves. We are committed to mindful cultivation and innovative practices throughout the entire supply chain. We hope to see these practices become standard as consumers continue to educate themselves on the many ways to incorporate cannabis into therapeutic routines. Although there is still a lot of uncertainty county to county, we are actively creating opportunities so that we can remain available on a state level and continue to refine our products.
Cannabis in Nevada County and California
Nevada County, the third largest cannabis producer in the state, is becoming known as an outstanding producer of artisanally grown cannabis. The county is working together to keep up the momentum in gaining recognition as a household name in fine outdoor cannabis. Simultaneously we are one of the many counties across the state that has not created any ordinances, meaning that no licenses are being given at this time. This creates a hurdle and divide between the state regulations and the county because businesses in Nevada County cannot yet obtain licensure.
On a state level, we will begin to see changes as the adult-use cannabis market emerges. You can expect to see the products available in dispensaries undergoing small changes to meet the new regulations. The importance of being an educated consumer and knowing your medicine and its source is all the more important as the market shifts. We will likely see an influx of big corporations enter the marketplace. That makes supporting local and cottage growers vital to preserving the long-standing California cannabis culture!
The Future Of Medicine Box
Education, education, education! This is such an important element of our offering. We want to continue to be a source of consumer knowledge! As the adult-use cannabis market grows, so does the percentage of new users in the marketplace. Having the tools and platforms to truly get to know your medicine is key, and we will continue to be an educational resource!

That’s right folks, our CBD formulary that has been in R&D for the past year will be launched in 2018! This is extremely exciting for a number of reasons! Largely, our collaborative partner on this formulary is a true medicine man. We are blessed to partner with such an amazing human and well of knowledge. We can’t wait to share this medicine with you in the new year!
Health And Wellness Path
Our approach is proactive rather than reactive. All of our products are designed as preventative medicine. The health care system is failing many people and leaving them in search of an alternative that truly supports wellness. Cannabis, even adult-use cannabis, is not just a recreational substance, nor is it only useful for those that are terminally ill; instead it’s a valuable tool for all patient types. You can expect Medicine Box to continue to offer wholesome, therapeutic products that promote optimal wellness!
Expanding Our Reach
We want to connect with you! Customer service is paramount to our success. We are available to our patients to personally to guide you as you fulfill your cannabis needs. A major part of that process is being available all over the state of California. We are working tirelessly to make this happen, but if you would like to support us in this endeavor, we’d love to collaborate!
We can’t do this alone, and our supporters are what keep us going! Our innovative collaborative partners are a major part of our business model and we wouldn’t be the same without them! There is also opportunity in this realm — if you have an industry related business and feel we would have something to offer each other, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
2017 It’s Been Real
We’re as ready as we can be to hit the new year with a bang! Cheers to winter — the season of hibernation and introspection. We have so much to be grateful for and even more to look forward to! Thanks for being on this ride with us!
