Marijuana Website Essential for Small Business

Small business is constantly evolving and pushing the envelope for what exactly business is and does. Even 5 years ago, almost anyone who grew, sold, or consumed marijuana was committing a criminal act. Fast forward to today and recreational marijuana is legal in every West Coast state, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. The stigma associated with pot is quickly evaporating and a massive new industry has taken over. Not only does marijuana offer its host of medical benefits, but it also offers a new channel for small business.

Websites for Alternative Medicine

Alternative medicine used to have an odd, negative association with it. Even ten or fifteen years ago, the idea of treating a cold with household remedies, spices, tinctures, and essential oils was often scoffed at. As recent as 4 years ago, the book, “Do You Believe in Magic? The Sense and Nonsense of Alternative Medicine” heavily criticized alternative medicine. But, like Bob Dylan said, the times they are a-changin’.

It makes sense, then, to have a website for alternative medicine practitioners, apothecaries, and yes, even medicinal marijuana shops.   Websites for Small … Read More
