According to a new study, the average person will spend up to 34 years of their life looking at screens? We have to admit; we were pretty surprised at that statistic too. But when you think about how many times you are staring into a monitor, a smartphone, television, or laptop, it makes sense.
You are rushing to work. Or, if you work from home, docking your phone near your desk for the long commute from the kitchen to your office (#Pandemic Life). How many messages do you get every day on your phone? Guess because the number of interruptions or distractions you live with every day from your devices will surprise you.
That means everything from messages, news, and social media posts to private texts from work, or from your family and friends. And it is not that we are incapable of keeping up with the constant barrage of digital media. It’s the cost of our physical and mental health that should concern us.
In the United States, our socio-cultural habits already limit exercise.
Time outdoors is rare when you could stay in the comfort of your own home. And our media consumption has grown during the pandemic. A recent Nielsen survey states that media consumption may have increased by over 60% in the United States during the Covid-19 health emergency. An increase that also correlates with an exponential rise in anxiety and depression rates.
It wasn’t long ago that the only packaging you got your cannabis in was a zip lock bag. Fast forward ten years later, and thirty-six states that have legalized medical or adult-use marijuana. Now, not only can we visit a dispensary to get quality cannabis, there are new celebrity brands. There is more to Houseplant by Seth Rogen than cool designer packaging.
Seth Rogen is the latest mega-star celebrity to venture into the cannabis industry. Rogen has established himself as the least likely Hollywood leading man. His characters in every movie have three things in common; his affable sense of humor, down-to-earth personality, and love of weed.
So, it is not surprising to see Seth Rogen throw his bong into the commercial ring. The actor has built that reputation as one of the best-recognized pop culture high-functioning potheads. Rogen is a good guy and relatable in movies like “Knocked Up” and “Pineapple Express.” He has starred in many movies and produced films like “The 40-Year Old Virgin”.
Although, we’re still trying to figure out how you flame a bong with the lighter. Tricky. But doable. Designed mostly for joints or pre-rolls, we suspect. The products and the strains are truly cerebral from reviews so far. And the website for Houseplants is trippy too.
A unique and highly creative marketing approach. Again, not inconsistent with Rogen’s creative genius. There are even soundtracks you can buy to go with the Sativa or Indica blends. Because for Houseplant, cannabis is ritualized enjoyment.
Florida has been dubbed the second-fastest-growing medical cannabis market in the United States, behind California. In the first quarter of 2020, there were more than 300,000 registered medical marijuana patients in the state. Therein lies a great opportunity for a growing medical marijuana dispensary business in Florida. In fact, the medical cannabis industry has created over 34,000 new jobs across America in this high growth market.
VidaCann is well-positioned as one of the most reputable and largest cannabis producers and dispensary brands in the Sunshine State. VidaCann, based in Jacksonville, Florida, has been operating a flowering plant nursery and greenhouse since 1949. To say that VidaCann has learned a thing or two about organic cultivation in 71 years would be an understatement.
The passion for cultivation is just the start of the quality control and horticultural expertise that goes into every VidaCann product. Onsite, there is a cGMP certified laboratory that meets all Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for quality control.
“As the second-fastest-growing medical marijuana market in the U.S., we have seen the ever-increasing demand from patients across Florida for our safe and effective cannabis products and with this investment in our expansion, our goal is to ensure VidaCann products are readily and easily available to help those who need it.“—Peyton Moseley, Vice President of Product Development, VidaCann
The growth plan for VidaCann involves launching more dispensaries. They have projected a total of thirty-five (35) operational medical marijuana dispensaries in Florida by 2021. VidaCann currently provides more than 30 premium strains of medical cannabis and 200+ product SKUs for certified Florida medical marijuana cardholders. VidaCann has also secured licensing as the exclusive cultivator and Florida dispensary for Charlotte’s Web™ cannabis products and Tikun Olam, two world-renowned and highly rated premium strains and brands.
