This past weekend, Blum Oakland’s Private Reserve OG took home 2nd place in the Hybrid category at the 2014 Patients’ Choice San Francisco Medical Cannabis Cup! Thanks to the patients who participated, and, more importantly, the Blum patients who have made this bud so popular.

There’s gold in that green marijuana [VIDEO]

This video, from the Reno Gazette-Journal about the impending green rush in Nevada, also happens to feature Blum as an example of what Nevada dispensaries could look like! (Click the box in the bottom-righthand corner of the video to enlarge.)

There’s a new gold rush in Nevada, all centered around a green plant.

Sometime in the spring of 2015, Nevada’s medical marijuana industry will be open for business. Doctors say medical marijuana will help patients with cancer, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder and other ailments.

Others see the green in a different light. The marijuana business offers excellent potential for profit, so much so that it has attracted the rich and famous of Nevada.

“There are a lot of people who are savvy business people who see this as an opportunity to make money,” said Pete Krueger, president of the Nevada Medical Marijuana Association, a business group. “And God bless them, that’s the American way.”

ArcView Group, a San Francisco-based investing and market research firm for high-net-worth investors, estimated the national legal market (including recreational and medical marijuana) was $1.53 billion in 2013, according to Forbes. That’s expected to grow to $2.57 billion by the end of 2014. Marijuana sales in Washington and Colorado — the two states where recreational marijuana is legal — is expected to pull in $316 million and $802 million, respectively, in 2014.
