WHOOPI GOLDBERG

TO LAUNCH A WOMEN’S

CANNABIS LINE OF PRODUCTS

B. LE GRAND
EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Whoopi Goldberg is launching
a new line of medical cannabis
products targeting women.
Goldberg, who has been relatively
public about her own cannabis use,
said her “Whoopi & Maya” company
received financial backing from
friends and family members, and
she will serve as chairwoman.
“I want to go nice and slow with
this. I don’t want this to be a joke to
people. It’s not a joke to women,”
Goldberg told USA TODAY.
“Whoopi & Maya” offers four
products: a balm, a tincture, sipping
chocolate, and a bath soak. All
products are infused with marijuana
and aim to reduce the pain and
cramps from menstrual cycles.
Pricing is yet to be determined.

WWW.EDIBLESMAGAZINE.COM | ISSUE NO. 23

The product line will be available
in California during Quarter II of
the 2015, hopefully in time for
420. Whoopi is one of a handful
of Hollywood celebrities jumping
on the cannabis bandwagon. Bob
Marley’s family has partnered with
a cannabis company to produce
Marley Natural products, and
Snoop Dogg backs Leafs by Snoop.

California voters this fall are widely
expected to pass a ballot measure
legalizing recreational cannabis.
In many cases, medical and
recreational products are identical
aside from dosing caps; the only
difference is whether a user needs
a doctor’s recommendation.

By launching in California, Goldberg
and partner Maya Elisabeth are
entering one of the world’s largest
cannabis
marketplaces,
with
California producing $2.7 billion
in sales last year, according to
the cannabis-focused data firms
New Frontier and ArcView Market
Research.

This summer California lawmakers
approved series of measures
formalizing a form of the state’s
new medical cannabis regulatory
system. Those measures lay the
groundwork for a legal recreational
system, and could potentially give
anyone offering medical cannabis
products a leg up in selling
recreational products if they are
legalized this fall.

The cannabis industry is one of
the country’s fastest growing
industries, increasing annually by
31%, with a national market worth
$5.7 billion.

“Success at the ballot box would
massively increase California’s
total legal market share,” Troy
Dayton, CEO of The ArcView
Group, said in a statement.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG’S CANNABIS LINE CONTINUED

She said she’s not interested in
creating a recreational cannabis
company to sell joints to people
who just want to get high. Goldberg
came up with the idea for the
company with a friend, and found
Elisabeth to partner with.

Elisabeth said she and Goldberg
believe their niche - if you can call
50% of the population a niche, she
laughs - is ripe for success. She said
women have for generations been
herbal healers, and she believes
the company’s cannabis products
are no different. England’s Queen
Victoria is widely believed to have
used a similar tincture to relieve
her own cramps, Elisabeth said.
“I’m excited for people to feel
comfortable using cannabis,” said
Elisabeth, a founder of the allfemale Northern California edible
marijuana products cooperative
Om Edibles.
Goldberg said smoking pot or
drinking cannabis-infused tea has
helped control her own cramps
and pain, and she currently uses a

Another interest of the two women
is in breaking what some are calling
the “grass-ceiling” in the semi-legal
cannabis industry, which has seen
limited participation of minorities
and women in leadership roles.
When it comes to starting
cannabis-focused
businesses,
state regulators have written rules
that tend to favor established
small-business
owners

access to capital and clean criminal
records. And because cannabis
remains illegal at the federal level,

“A lot of white men don’t have to
think about this,” said Elisabeth,
who is Caucasian.
Goldberg, an actress and comedian
known for films like “Ghost” and
TV shows like “Star Trek: The Next
Generation,” has been open about
using cannabis, penning a column
for The Cannabist and arguing for
legalization on “The View.”
“This is a nice quiet way that I can
be part of this,” Goldberg said
of the new company. “It had to
help people if I were going to be
involved.”
This venture into the public
spotlight is anything but quiet, and
we thank these women for coming
out into the limelight to spread
awareness about the benefits of
cannabis.

US Supreme Court
Rejects Challenge of

Colorado Marijuana Laws
On April 4th, the Supreme Court
rejected a conservative challenge
to the cannabis legalization
laws adopted in Colorado and
elsewhere that permit adults to buy,
or possess one ounce of cannabis.

of cannabis, 22 other states
have adopted similar measures.
Colorado, Washington, Oregon
and Alaska went further and
allowed for the production and sale
of cannabis for recreational use.

By a 6-2 vote, the justices turned
away a lawsuit brought by
Nebraska and Oklahoma, whose
state attorneys complained that
illegal cannabis was pouring
into their states as a result of
Colorado’s liberalized laws.

Supporters of the laws praised
the court’s decision. “This is good
news for legalization supporters,”
said Tom Angell, chairman of
cannabis Majority. “This case, if it
went forward and the court ruled
the wrong way, had the potential
to roll back many of the gains our
movement has achieved to date.”
Faced with this state-by-state
rebellion against an unchanging
federal drug law, the Justice
Department issued guidance
telling prosecutors to focus on
“significant traffickers of illegal
drugs,” not on users of medical
cannabis.

“The state of Colorado authorizes,
oversees, protects and profits
from a sprawling $100-millionper-month cannabis growing,
processing
and
retailing
organization
that
exported
thousands of pounds of cannabis
to some 36 states in 2014,” they
said. “If this entity were based
south of our border, the federal
government would prosecute it as
a drug cartel.”
They argued that Colorado’s law
violates the federal Controlled
Substances Act, which treats
cannabis as a dangerous drug
and forbids its sale or use. The
prosecuting states urged the
Supreme Court to take up the
issue as an “original” matter and
declare that Colorado’s law was
preempted by the federal drug laws.
Usually, the high court hears
appeals from lower-court rulings.
But on rare occasions, the justices
are called upon to decide disputes
between states. Typically, however,
these “original” suits involve
disagreements over boundaries
or the use of river water that flows
from one state to another.
The suit brought by Nebraska
and Oklahoma also implicitly
challenged
the
Obama
administration for its refusal to
intervene more directly in Colorado.

Since California’s voters in
1996 authorized medical use

Last year, the justices asked U.S.
Solicitor Gen. Donald Verrilli to
weigh in on the interstate legal
battle over cannabis, and in
December, he urged the court to
turn away the lawsuit. Nebraska
and Oklahoma have not suffered a
“direct injury” from their neighbor
to the West, he said, and they
remain free to vigorously police
cannabis in their states.
In response, the Nebraska and
Oklahoma state attorneys said
the Justice Department has
“turned its back” on enforcing
the federal law and is permitting
it to be “dismantled by piecemeal
nullification.”
Justices Clarence Thomas and
Samuel A. Alito Jr. dissented
Monday. “The plaintiff states have
alleged significant harms to their
sovereign interests caused by
another state,” Thomas wrote. “We
should let this complaint proceed
further rather than denying leave
without so much as a word of
explanation.”

APRIL FEATURED REVIEWS
MARY’S MEDICINALS

Mary’s Medicinals - aka Mary’s Nutritionals in Colorado - is a company
that’s name has become synonymous with cannabis infused topicals.
The company’s award-winning Transdermal Cannabis Patch instantly
earned them a spot as one of the best companies in the industry.. The
Transdermal Patches work wonderfully. I use the CBD patches almost
weekly for neck pain caused by old injuries. The patches offer a quick
onset and unsurpassed duration, Mary’s patches are 2x2 squares, easy to
use, and adhere simply to any veinous part of the skin for discreet, all day
(or night) relief.
I also really enjoy the Muscle Freeze, a gel that combines CBD and natural
plant extracts for a soothing, cooling effect. This product would be
closely related to BioFreeze or Icy Hot; however, unlike those products,
Muscle Freeze rubs into your skin smoothly and does not leave a layer
of sticky residue after applying.
Additionally, I tried the Elite CBD Compound, which contains a proprietary
carrying agent blend for an inside/out approach to healing. The
compound is applied topically, and helped me with pain, inflammation
and muscle soreness.
While reviewing these products I was experiencing severe back pain likely caused by the chain keeping me at my desk - just kidding! Since
I don’t believe there is a way to use too many topicals I used all three of
Mary’s remedies at the same time and I am pleased to report that within
30 minutes I was no longer experiencing pain. The pain subsided until I
needed to reapply several hours later.

The Doobie Company was started with the hope of bringing innovative
and healthy medication options to local Proposition 215 patients. While
people usually associate medication with health, traditional methods
of medicating with cannabis are far from healthy. Traditional edibles
tend to be high in sugar content and may contain ingredients that some
with healthier or more active lifestyles try to avoid. The Doobie Co. is
“dedicated to getting medicated” by offering healthy alternatives to high
sugar edibles.

THE DOOBIE CO.

Doobie Juice Medicated E-Liquid uses premium quality shatter in a
painstaking and time-consuming cooking and steeping process that has
been developed and fine-tuned over the past three years to maximize
flavor and potency. The e-juice is offered in Sativa, Indica and Hybrid
options and are very discrete. Doobie Juice contains more than 1200 mg
of THC per 15 ml bottle and is SC Labs tested. It can be used as an e-liquid,
as a tincture, and as an additive that can be dripped on any product for
smoking or eating. They also offer .5 gram bottles which has half the
potency. The flavors are delicious! Out of the three I tried - Cereal Rip,
Vanilla Buzz and Strawberry Slap - my favorite was the Cereal Rip, perhaps
because it was the Sativa version. I really enjoyed how smooth it was to hit
and how versatile the uses are!
Doobie Protein Bars are made from all natural ingredients and are a
healthy way to satisfy hunger, consume high-energy nutrients, and (most
importantly) get medicated. The bars incorporate extracts in the form of
varying butters and oils, which are applied in three different phases of
the production process. The medicated protein bars are made from oats,
wheat bran, sunflower seed, nuts, and dipped in chocolate. In addition to
THC, each bar contains six grams of protein. The scrumptious bars are
perfect for daytime medicating. They not only give you the THC pick-meup, the protein gives you a little extra oomph to get up and moving!

Cannabis Social Clubs

Shut Down in Colorado Springs
The Colorado Springs City Council voted 6-3 to ban
cannabis clubs in Colorado Springs. This means clubs will
have until 2024 to completely phase out. The ordinance
prohibits the opening of any Marijuana Consumption Club
- defined as “an establishment, organization, association,
club, teapad, or other similar entity or place where a
purpose is to allow the consumption of marijuana, medical
marijuana or marijuana product on the premises” - but is
letting some clubs stay open.
There are approximately 15 existing clubs and of those
only facilities “lawfully operating” prior to the moratorium
beginning September 22, 2015 will be grandfathered in.
The compliant clubs will have to apply for licenses from
the city and comply with a new set of zoning rules. These

26

guidelines include a mandatory ventilation and filtration
system, no sales, trades, reimbursements, etc., no one
under 21 is allowed entry, no on-site cultivation and the
clubs must remain out of operation between 2 a.m. and
7 a.m. The licensed clubs will then be forced to close their
doors in March 2024.
There are currently two campaigns currently underway to
undo this ordinance. A lawsuit has been filed in the district
court by nine companies and 14 individuals. The other is
a petition to force a referendum, which is essentially an
appeal to the Council to repeal the ban. If Council declines
it will be sent to a public vote in a special election. The
group spearheading this endeavor must collect 14,649
valid signatures by April 21.

GARDEN OF WEEDEN

Garden of Weeden is a Los Angeles based medicated dried fruit company
specializing in small batch, artisanal products. Their two main products
are Johnny Appleweed Medicated Apple Rings and Bananas! Medicated
Banana Bites. Neither of these products contain any added sweeteners.
The owner does not believe in using concentrates as an infusion method.
Instead Garden of Weeden uses infused organic extra virgin coconut
oil providing a more natural delivery and delicious taste to their edibles.
They even print the test results for their coconut oil right on the bag. The
healthy portion includes “about 10 servings (serving size: 15mg - about
3 rings only and contains 150mg per bag,” according to the packaging.
The rings are low dose which makes them a great daytime medicating
option. Garden of Weeden products all are soy and gluten-free as well as
vegan friendly! The medicated apples are both delicious and healthy, plus
who doesn’t like eating dried apples? After consuming these, not only will
your tastebuds be satisfied, you will not be disappointed in the result. They
leave you feeling euphoric and productive. For more information about
Garden of Weeden check out their website: www.TheGardenofWeeden.com

Derby Bakery - a new kid on the block - entered the cannabis
industry in January, though they are clearly not amateurs! The
company offers a line of baked goods currently including
cookies, peanut butter cups and caramels, although I am sure
there is more to come. The company entered the market by
adding cannabis to existing award-winning baked goods.

DERBY BAKERY

Their packaging is impeccable! The branding is subtle and
attractive, they also use high-end, food grade, re-sealable
packages that keep the products extra fresh. This is a nice touch
for baked goods as I don’t always want to eat a full cookie,
sometimes I just want to nibble throughout the day. The cookies
are soft and delicious. There is a slight hint of cannabis but is
mostly masqued. Derby Bakery infuses their products with a
hybrid CO2 oil allowing for a nice mellow effect. Both the Lucky
Lemon Cookie, made with white chocolate chips and Macadamia
nuts as well as the Triple Crown Cookie, which is a chocolate
pecan nut cookie are wonderful and the packaging really does
keep the cookies soft. Each contain 40mg of THC.
The Daily Double Peanut Butter Cups are milk chocolate cups
with rich peanut butter centers. The infused peanut butter within
the cocoa cup is whipped to velvety texture, and treats your
taste buds with a medium roasted, malty nut flavor that is salty
and semi-sweet. Derby Bakery Peanut Butter Cups use organic,
locally-sourced ingredients from Sonoma County. The Daily
Double Peanut Butter Cups are packaged 4 per bag in dosages of
20mg per cup. These peanut butter cups rival Hershey’s, they are
absolutely delectable! Since they are low dose I decided to eat all
of them at once. Once the medication hit I was not left debilitated
and really enjoyed the effects of the Derby Bakery products. As
their packaging packaging suggests, it was absolutely my lucky
day, in that I had the chance to try these edibles! If interested in a
phenomenal new edible check out Derby Bakery online at:
www.DerbyBakery.com

PUNCH EDIBLES

Just as the company’s name would suggest, Punch Edibles will hit you
hard. These chocolate bars are small but mighty. There are two main
products that come in various flavors. The PunchBar comes in 150
and 225mg and in thirteen flavors - I tried the Toffee Milk Chocolate
and Mint Bars. The Punch Combos come in 225mg dosages and five
different flavors - I had the Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Crunch and
the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly Combos. My favorites were
the Mint Chocolate Punch Bar and the Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate
Crunch Combo. Each product is scored out in nine bite size pieces.
Each of those pieces contains 25mgs and just over 12 calories - which
means these are a great low-calorie option for anyone looking to
medicate on a diet! Punch Edibles are made with the highest quality
Absolute Shatter and are lab-tested for potency and purity.
The Punch packaging is very well done. It contains a significant
amount of information considering the shortage of surface area.
There is a cannabis warning decal, full nutrition facts, and an image
depicting the scored out chocolate bar showing the milligrams of
each piece. In preparation for this review I knew I had four flavors to
try but had been warned about these potent little devils, so I only ate
one square from each bar. Approximately, 45 minutes later I was hit
hard. Needless to say, these are not edibles for the faint of heart, nor
are these daytime medicating edibles. These are the type of edibles
you have after a long week and you deserve a good rest. Punch
Edibles began in 2014 and have been doing so well the Punch brand
has expanded into media and concentrates with Punch Media and
Punch Extracts. For more information about this awesome company

BETTY KHRONIC

A new healthy edible company has hit the scene that you need
to know about, Betty Khronic. They make Raw Vegan Cannabis
infused Energy Bars, that are all Sativa specific. Coming from
athletic backgrounds, the founders of Betty Khronic incorporate
cannabis as a part of healthy lifestyle, in addition to exercise and
clean eating.
They extract only high grade lab-tested, Sativa strains by hand,
using 100% Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. The extraction
process is done in small quantities the all natural way, using NO
toxins such as Butane or CO2. Yes, this process is more tedious
and more labor intensive, but it is all natural; the way nature
intended the plant to be. Extracting in small quantities also ensures
consistency within their extraction formula. From the extraction
process to creating the bars everything is done in house, literally
from farm to table.
The energy bars are 40mg each (two in package), and contain
almonds, chia seeds, cacao, pepitas, dates and canna-coconut
oil. You feel like you’re eating something that’s good for you when
you eat a Betty Khronic edible!
In addition to being Sativa edibles only, they are Vegan, Paleo,
Raw, Organic Ingredients, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Caffeine Free,
contain No Artificial Preservatives, and have No Added Sugars.

DANK GRASSHOPPER

This is by far the strongest candy bar I’ve ever had. Ever! Which is
not necessarily a bad thing. But if you’re new to edibles, it would be
wise to avoid this specific bar like a plague. You don’t want to start
with a bad experience. If you have ample experience medicating
with edibles, and have an idea of how much cannabis you can
tolerate, then this bar is fantastic.
The bar comes very attractively wrapped. Well, because it looks
like money. It’s a very playful way of letting the consumer know
what to expect from ingesting it. The pertinent information is clearly
visible. As someone who’s had their share of products with down
to business medically astute packaging, it’s nice to see companies
give you the same information in a more esthetically pleasing way.
With edibles this strong, I usually find it difficult to measure out
how much to eat consistently. Some bites seem to kick harder
than others from day-to-day. But with this 1000mg bar, it’s been
incredibly consistent. I know that I need between 20-30mg to get a
good night sleep, and with this bar, I can calculate fairly consistently
how much to eat every night.
This product may not be suitable for the casually medical or
recreational user, but it is excellent for the experienced patients
who need higher doses or prefer to more precisely calculate their
preferred dosage.

The ProCannaZine Medicinal Elixir is a lab-tested, syrup concentrate containing
100mg THC, that can be added to any drink “to taste the flavor and feel the high,”
according to the product label. The company suggests to start by diluting a portion
of the bottle with 8-16oz water or beverage of your choosing. The bottle is sealed
and with a child-resistant cap to ensure that there are no accidental overdoses.
ProCannaZine provides several flavors, but I happened to taste the Tropical flavor.
I decided to pour half the bottle into a Sprite and proceeded to see what would
happen. I must admit I am not all that familiar with the effects of typical cannabis
syrups as they are not usually my thing. However, I was very pleased with
ProCannaZine. The onset was smooth, but it hit me hard. It was the kind of high
that just made me laugh uncontrollably. I laughed at absolutely nothing until my
belly ached, and then, I passed out - hard. It took me out for the entire night and
I did wake up a bit groggy. So, this review comes with a warning: ProCannaZine
offers a superb product, please be advised this is a knockout type of edible, so
I suggest this be taken on a Friday night in preparation to sleep in on Saturday.

VARAVO: CHOCOLATE & VAPES
Varavo is a company I have had the pleasure of working with
since its official launch in September 2015. Varavo offers a
full line of cannabis oils and cannabis infused chocolates.
The Varavo line is simple and classic. They currently only offer
Milk, Dark and White chocolate. They have not added any
other fancy flavors or other additives, instead they went with
the classics and they have done it well. Each of the flavors
are offered in 50, 200 and 500mg (total
package). Uniquely Varavo opted to offer
‘chocolate chunks’ instead of a traditional
bar. Each chunk is individually wrapped
in a childproof blister pack. Each piece of
chocolate is stamped with the Varavo name
and a proprietary cannabis emblem ensuring
that there is never confusion or accidental
consumption due to not knowing these are
cannabis infused products. The chocolate
is smooth and delicious. There is absolutely
an underlying marijuana flavor, however, it
is not at all offensive - it does not overpower
the chocolate. Varavo has gone above
and beyond with their packaging. Their
packaging is clean and professional looking.
It includes all pertinent information as well
as some bonuses including a Braille warning
label. The cannabis warning emblem is seen
throughout the packaging from the outer
box to the blister packaging and again on the actual product.
They have also included a ‘dosage meter’ to intended to give
patients a better understanding of how much THC is in each
dose, as well as how long to wait for the onset of effects.
These products and packaging were clearly designed and

created with the patients in mind. The chocolates are potent
and consistent. Each time I have tried Varavo’s chocolates
I have had the same high with the same onset. The high is
mellow, I have both a head and body high, but never feel
couch-locked after consuming a Varavo chocolate chunk.
Additionally, I happen to know that Varavo’s White Chocolate
Chunks are our Editor-in-Chief's favorite white chocolate
product on the market. Mostly white chocolate
edibles taste horrible because it is difficult to
mask the cannabis flavor, not Varavo’s!
Varavo also offers Sativa and Indica disposable
cartridges. Each strain is offered in 350 and
700mg. The company also offers a vape pen
and cartridge with the logo printed on the end.
The pen and cartridges are both black allowing
for a seamless and sharp looking vaporizer. The
oil is the perfect honey color. They do not add
any additives, there is no glycol or glycerin, just
a cartridge filled with quality cannabis oil. The oil
tastes clean and has a nice flavor. Admittedly,
I am not really a vape-er, I would much prefer
some good flower any day, but I really like
Varavo’s vapes. The indica gave me a really
great body high and I only needed a couple of
puffs right before bed for a restful night sleep!
Both Varavo’s chocolates and vaporizers are awardwinning, without a doubt they earned those titles due to their
exceptional and superior products. For more information

production as well as a vast network
of venues, vendors and suppliers.
Frances and Barbi also facilitate the
Women Grow meetings in Orange
County on the first Thursdays of
every month.
Mary Jane University offers a line
of signature in-home parties and
events for the cannabis community.
Whether you are new to cannabis
as a medicine, curious about the
health benefits of cannabis or would
like a cannabis themed event,
their services cater to all cannabis
education needs.
“My purpose in life has always been to
heal, inspire and serve in some way.
Mary Jane University is a collective
consciousness of the Universal
spirit or essence of marijuana.
Taking our collective talents, years
of knowledge and experience and
combining it with our passion for
healing, it was only natural that Mary
Jane University was born. With the
vast number of people waking up
to the potential of cannabis, we
bridge the gap, provide information
and demonstrate the versatility
of marijuana as an essential
path to wellness,” Frances said.
She discussed the critical need for
education. “Education is essential
to the industry right now. It is the
most sought after commodity in the
cannabis space right now. Facilitating
the Women Grow Orange County

chapter meetings, we see it every
month. Almost everyone is there to
learn. Attendees are hungry to know
more and not just in the respect to
facilitating business but all aspects
of the plant as medicine. They are
craving that knowledge that has
been kept in the closet for many
years,” she said.
She goes on to say, “Mary Jane
University is a compliment to any
cannabis business. Whether you
have a product or service, need an
event planned, are an influencer
in the industry or are looking to
start your own cannabis business,
we have a place for you. We
aspire to something greater for the
community as a whole. Bringing
healing, wellness, and community
all together only creates a byproduct
of wealth and abundance. It is our
vision to make Mary Jane University,
a household name and to take
our ideas and mission across the
nation.”
“Everyday we learn something new
about this wondrous plant. Cannabis
education will always be an integral
aspect of Mary Jane University.
As more research is done, more
patients are healed and cancers
are outsmarted, there will always be
something to learn,” Frances said.
With a positive view on the future,
Mary Jane University hopes to see
an upward thriving movement over
the next 5 years. Many businesses
will make their marks in the space,
but the companies that hold true
to impeccable standards will shine
through and rise above the rest.
The main theme of cooperation
not competitiveness will carry
the message of cannabis and its
benefits to the masses. There will
always be the need for cannabis
and hemp education, and Mary
Jane University is here to help.

COVER FEATURE: TRIPP KEBER
CEO & CO-FOUNDER, DIXIE BRANDS

there with them. I chickened out. I didn’t
want to live in New York. I didn’t want to
be a Wall Street finance guy. I wanted to
be an entrepreneur and work for myself.”
“The world as I knew it was over. I thought
my life was going to be carefree. Now
there were 7 women without husbands,
and 11 children without fathers,” Tripp said.
Fast forward a few months later, “My
wife was in love with another man. That
just shook me to my core. I was already
dealing with more emotion than any
person should have to. I had no escape,
living in a state where I knew no one, other
than his soon to be ex-wife and children.”
Tripp acknowledges that with how he was
feeling at the time, a gun should never
have been in the mix. He was ashamed
about that moment for years. Even though
he describes himself as a coward in that
moment, he takes suicide seriously and
says of others going through depression,
“You don’t know what that person is going
through.”

This issue, we had the pleasure of
interviewing Tripp Keber, the CEO and
Co-Founder of Dixie Brands. He says he
and his business partner, Chuck Smith,
got into this business by happenstance,
in 2009, which he calls “The Dark Days.”
They were real estate developers right
at the turn of the economy. Being from
the South, they decided to name their
company Dixie, paying homage to South
of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Prior to launching Dixie, Tripp says he was
Denver’s oldest teenager; a true party boy.
His successful real estate business and
sale of his voice and data tech company
in 2001 afforded him some spare time
and a temporary retirement, even though
he was far too young to actually retire.
“We did not get into it to help people.
We got into this to make money, initially.
Boy, were we wrong, the money didn’t
show up or materialize for a while. But
more importantly we started hearing from
patients that the products were really
helping them on a level that alcohol and
opioids couldn’t,” Tripp said.
That positive reaction to their initial
product launches inspired them to look
into deeper opportunities in the industry.
The elixir was their first product, when
cannabis infused beverages was relatively
untouched by the infused products
markets. At the time, no one was sure how
to market to the range of demographics
medicinal cannabis appeals to. But they
believed that it was possible to create a
brand and establish a moral high ground

based on making quality products.
There was a lot of theory that legalization
was going to happen, but no one realized
how long it was going to take and how
complicated the matter would be. They
certainly could not have predicted that
50% of the industry would be infused
products, growing every year.
In 2010, Tripp had half a million dollars
invested in the business, being far too
frugal to walk away, and no return in the
near future, he doubled down repeatedly.
He makes it no secret that he is just not
one of those people who has had a lifelong
love affair with cannabis, aside from the
occasional social toke. He explained that
he just never knew how great the plant is
for you.
Tripp says that cannabis has helped him
personally with alcohol, “I just chose the
wrong solution to many years.”
He shared with me details of a story
he talked about at the November 2015
Marijuana Business Daily Conference. In
2002, around February-March, he had
an extremely dark moment that involves
holding a 9mm pistol on the kitchen floor
of his home, and considering suicide.
He had just sold his tech company
September 1st, 2001, and 10 days later 9
of his friends (3 of whom he lived with)
died in the World Trade Center attacks.
He was heading to New York on the train
when the tragedies occurred. He softly
recollected, “Candidly, I should have been

He picked himself up and moved on,
while supressing his feelings with drugs
and alcohol. He says that it was risky for
him to admit that to a crowd of 6,000,
at the conference where he first told the
cautionary tale. There’s a perception of
Tripp being a “Willy Wonka of Weed”
type character, where he is perceived as
invincible and infallible, while he says that
is just not the case.
Tripp's younger brother, a cannabis
enthusiast introduced him to cannabis.
Since his brother managed to stay out of
trouble, and it was then Tripp figured that
maybe his little brother was smarter than
he was.
“Alcohol is a depressant. I had a pretty
healthy relationship with alcohol, I get
angry, those emotions are generally
deep seeded or from your childhood
or whatever pisses you off. It’s easier
to control when under the influence of
cannabis as opposed to alcohol or God
forbid some stronger drug. I use marijuana
today to control my emotions. If anyone is
ever on that floor, [they can look at me
and say] if that turkey can do it, so can I!,”
Tripp said.
The experience that he shared is one
that many can relate to, and it certainly
humanizes the persona the public knows
him as. Last year, Tripp and Dixie were
featured as part of the cast of Pot Barons,
a cable television show about the legal
emerging cannabis industry in Colorado.
Not only was it a risky proposition to air
their operation on national television,
Tripp was terrified they were going to
name the series “Marijuana Morons” and
cast him as the lead.

was to be involved in the series, and
says that it was incredibly rewarding to
reach a demographic that was probably
not acutely aware of what is going on in
cannabis.
However, Tripp confided to me that his
dad said, “What are you some kind of
asshole? Every Time they show you,
you’re drinking Tequila and smoking
cigars!”
While some acting and editing may have
been involved, Tripp says, “Doesn’t mean
we weren’t silly on occasion! Nevertheless
responsible journalist that took true
interest, Jerry Cohen, was passionate
about this plant, wanting to present it in
the most positive light.”
Pot Barons portrayed some of the
aftermath of 2014’s Colorado regulation
changes.
Edible companies had to
change their packaging numerous
times and extraction companies had
new explosion-proof hood regulations.
These changes put many producers
out of production for months on end,
until in compliance and approved by the
respective regulatory agencies.
California, among other states, are facing
regulation changes as the “kinks” get
ironed out with the legislatures. Dixie
has weathered the storm. When asked
what it took to get through those trials
and tribulations, Tripp said, “It starts at
the top, at the leadership level. And then
it takes delusional confidence, which
can work for or against you. We have
almost 100 team members in Colorado

alone, day in and day out. It takes a
strong management team, dedicated
employees, and a tremendous amount
of intellectual horsepower. 'Stick-to-it-iveness' is the key. 2016 is going to be the
breakout year in the cannabis industry
especially for infused product vendors.”

T-shirt and say, ‘Brother, how are we going
work together?’ It’s a collaborative effort,
we have to work together. All aspects
of society and the industry must come
together to make this plant mainstream
and socially accepted in as many circles
as possible,” Tripp said.

With California being the world’s 8th
largest economy on the planet, Tripp
optimistically thinks that California will
learn from Colorado and potentially
do a better job. “Stealing from one is
plagiarism, borrowing from many is
research. Hopefully they use only the best
aspects from each state. When you’re
first you don’t have that luxury. It’s scary
to be a pioneer,“ Tripp said.

Tripp believes (and so do we) that Medical
and Recreational regulations should
indeed be separate, and have different
taxation rates. “We don’t tax pharma?
So why do we tax medical marijuana?,”
he said.

When asked how special interest may
play a role in California’s regulations,
Tripp said, “Cannabis has become big
business. There are a lot of people
pulling in multiple directions. I’m proud
of Colorado. But it will not be like the
first time. People will probably unfairly
profit initially. Regardless, we are making
progress, with a plant that’s been marred
by black market stigma.”
“Day in and day out working hand in hand
with regulators. The regulators seek first
to understand then be understood. They’ll
reach across and say, ‘Teach me. Educate
me. Show me the reasons behind this.’
We’re happy to build a facility to proudly
show off to state regulators and federal
law enforcement. I’m not a marijuana
activist. I’m a reformist. I have to be able
to reach across the aisle, even if i’m in a
business suit and they’re in a Bob Marley

He also agreed with my comments on
how despite the rigorous child proofing
regulations, those are all meaningless
if the user is not responsible. He even
shared hate mail stories of people sending
in pictures with a gun to the Dixie bottle
because they couldn't get the bottle open.
He thinks by 2018-2020 cannabis will be
rescheduled Federally, or some kind of
executive order will go through by then.
Dixie is now in 6 states and 2 countries,
Arizona, Oregon, Colorado, California,
Nevada, Washington, and Australia. In
addition to their THC infused drinks,
chocolates, mints and tinctures, they
have recently launched a pet hemp CBD
line called Therabis.
Keep on the lookout for more products
and exciting endeavors from Dixie
Brands. They are another example of
how Colorado companies are leading the
way in the Green Rush. For those of us in
other states, we continue to have reform
to look forward to.

POT & PREJUDICE
No doubt the Dixie brand is recognizable to those in the cannabis community and many of those
not in the industry, thanks to MSNBC’s “Pot Barons”. Dixie Brands boasts an extensive list of
products ranging from the well-known Dixie Elixirs to topicals, chocolates, drops, capsules, mints,
and vapes to a pet line called Therabis, and now even a full hemp CBD line named Aceso.

Their range of products allows the company to hit more target markets based on need, dosages
and consumption abilities. In my humble opinion, I love their elixirs/drinks. Truth be told, there is
one in my refrigerator at all times. Not only do they offer a great value, but minimal consumption
provides you maximum benefit. Plus they all taste great!
Dixie prides themselves on being a trusted source for innovative, safe, effective and delicious
cannabis products. All of their products are well controlled, specifically dosed, and produced with
the highest regard to quality. They use only high quality CO2 to infuse their handcrafted products.
For the 420 celebration they have “flipped the script”. Instead of cashing in on the influx of sales for
the “Super Bowl of Cannabis”, they are giving back. As one of the largest companies in the industry,
it is important that they pave the way for social responsibility. Dixie teamed up with Marijuana Policy
Project (MPP) to shed light on the harsh consequences of the U.S. war on marijuana. Dixie and MPP
are on a mission this high holiday to change the paradigm surrounding 420. For every case of the
Limited Edition 100mg Wildberry Lemonade Elixir sold to a dispensary/distributor in California or
Colorado, they will donate $15 to MPP to help fund the fight on the legalization policy. They are not
only talking the talk; they are walking the walk!
The packaging is fun, just like the 420 celebration reflects. The flavors POP on your tongue like a
420 celebration should, but more importantly they are doing good for our community! Do us all a
favor this 420 holiday season and be sure to purchase a Limited Edition 100mg Wildberry Lemonade
Elixir to support the fight for our companies, our friends, our family. Wild Berry Lemonade Dixie
Elixirs, made only for the 420 holiday season, are a great combination of a delicious product and
meaningful philanthropy that will actually effect change and all of us that believe in the positive
effects of cannabis/MMJ. From drinks, to chocolates, to mints...to the future. To find out more about
Dixie and the Pot & Predjudice campaign, please go to: www.DixieElixirs.com

The Manager/Owner of Dabsolute Earl Ross, has a degree in Chemical
Engineering and has big plans for the future of his company, “As the company

pon first sight of these aluminum bottles I thought they may be some sort of
new brand of beer. Please keep in mind I am new to Colorado, and had no idea
what Keef Cola was. After further examination, it was apparent that I would be
reviewing a soda.

sampled the High Octane flavor which is modeled after Mountain Dew (in the real
world). Keef Colas are only 10mg so they are perfect for the recreational user interested
in trying a high quality edible that is not overpowered by the cannabis flavor. In fact,
there is virtually no cannabis taste at all. Keef Cola also offers a 100mg medical line.
The flavor excited my senses and triggered a synaptic pathway that revealed childhood
memories of my friends and I chugging Mountain Dew before skateboarding. I am
seriously thinking of switching out my regular sodas for these things!

E

ven though the name of the flavor was High Octane, I felt extremely relaxed after
drinking it and was able to focus on my work. Everything about Keef Colas are
great! From the packaging to nostalgic taste, I would absolutely recommend this
to anyone!

We tested this product by using a CO2 concentrate. The pen came in a nice kit that was easy to assemble. Upon putting it together, I placed
a small portion of CO2 in the pen and began to inhale. The pen is extremely smooth, it does not taste like it is overheating (and burning)
the oil - like some pens do. After using it, we can truly say there is no comptetion to U.S. made products. The Dabsolute Concentrate Pen is
DABSOLUTELY a great replacement for anyone who is over having to carry around a rig. The Dabsolute Concentrate Pen (DS HP Kit) retails
for $225.

knowing what they are really using. The Dabsolute Concentrate pen is made from
surgical grade stainless steel making it virtually indestructible, bolsters one of the
largest surface area heating elements in the industry and is covered by a lifetime
warranty against material defects and workmanship. If you follow the instructions
and your Dabsolute will last forever - don’t use it over 17W and your coil will last
6+ months easily. As for cleaning, it is as simple as submerging the atomizer and

PRODUCT REVIEW

KYMBER WARD
STAFF EDITOR
Edibles List first came to learn about Karl Young and Hermetic
Botanicals late last year and then he met our California team
at the 2015 Best of Edibles List Awards Show on January 8,
2015. As the Event Director I was a bit stressed pre-show,
Karl introduced himself and asked if I wanted to try a product
that would help with clarity, concentration and memory. My
answer was obviously “YES!” Minutes later, he appeared
with a package that read ‘FOCUS Nootropic Gummies’,
and instructed me to eat one or two of the gummy bears.
Approximately thirty minutes later I went to find the man who
had given me a miracle! I quickly noticed my nerves had
calmed, and I was able to effectively focus and implement
what needed to be done prior to 35 vendors and over 500
people showing up.
Karl is a remarkable man with a remarkable product. After
an electroshock injury to his left eyebrow on a 440v service
powerline, he was left with very little functionality, aggression,
depression and a limited ability to communicate. While on
his road to recovery, he discovered an amazing series of
plant-based compounds that help with reconnecting the
mind and body. As he began to heal, he began developing
this plant-based nootropic that he blended with a gummy
delivery.
Additionally, Hermetic offers topicals including Soothing
Embrace Body Lotion and Essence of Passion Massage
Oil. I must say, the Soothing Embrace Body Lotion is truly
one of my favorite cannabis lotions to date. I never really
like cannabis lotions because most leave a slimy residue on
your skin or feel greasy. Hermetic’s body lotion is as smooth
as silk. It hydrates, moisturizes and feels like a second skin.
The Essence of Passion Massage Oil is another fantastic
product. Unlike many of the other cannabis infused massage
oils, Essence of Passion does not smell like cannabis,
instead it is almost odorless and only needs a few drops to
do the job. In an attempt to keep this PG, I will tell you that if
you are looking for a great way to spice up your time in the
bedroom Essence of Passion will be a welcomed addition.
These hemp CBD edibles and topicals are truly wonderful
products and I urge you all to go to HermeticBotanicals.com
and learn more. You’ll thank me later when you can focus
and blow your… mind - all at one time!

FOOD SCIENCE:

STAFF EDITOR

your flavor supplier typically they
have common flavors sold in bulk.

Everyone wants their product to hit
all the current trend buttons (natural,
clean label, locally sourced, GMO
Free, Organic) - but sometimes you
have to compromise in order to ensure
that you are creating something
that is both safe and affordable. It
also helps to understand that just
because something sounds like it is
not natural, doesn’t mean that it isn’t!

label bacteria inhibitor that is created
via fermentation of milk and sugar
with probiotic organisms and works
in a wide variety of applications like
salad dressings and cured meats,
soups and dairy products. It will be
pricier than the synthetic options,
but allows you to maintain a “natural”
statement on your label (assuming
all other ingredients are natural
as well). Of course, it is always an
option to cook you product. Canned
foods and jarred shelf stable
sauces often just rely on heat as
the preservation method. However.
any thermal process would have to
be approved by the FDA and local
health inspector. Another option for
preservation salt or sugar, these
also inhibit bacteria by lowering the
water activity of the product.

Let's begin with mold inhibitors. If
you are a baked goods manufacturer
and plan to last on the shelf, your
products will need to contain
something to keep the fuzzy stuff
off your brownies. Luckily, there
are a wide variety of both natural
and synthetic solutions. Potassium
sorbate for example is a great yeast
and mold inhibitor that is inexpensive
and works in a wide variety of pH’s
and food bases. This is not one of
the natural choices, but it does the
job! Sodium benzoate is also cheap,
synthetic and keeps the bad bacteria
at bay! As a more natural option
called cultured dextrose (sold locally
by Mezonni Foods), is a cleaner

What about flavorings? No one in
the specialty food industry wants to
put artificial flavor in their products
and that is understandable, but keep
in mind natural flavors are more
expensive and less concentrated
than artificial, so to get the desired
flavor impact you will have to use more
of them. For instance, if you wanted
to flavor a lemon cake, you may only
need .2% artificial flavoring, but it
will take 2 to 3% to achieve the same
effect using natural flavors. So, what
can you do? The answer is WONF
(with other natural flavors), a specific
blend of flavors similar to what you
are looking for, but at a slightly
lower cost. Also, be sure to talk to

There are always natural alternatives
in the world of ingredients and it’s
just a matter of balancing out what
you need with the right price point.
Marijuana infused food products
need to be well preserved and
properly made to ensure they are
safe and effective when consumed.
Contact your local food scientist for
assistance if you have any doubt
about your food products safety
before selling it at the next cannabis
trade show!

I get calls from various start up
companies asking me how they
can keep their label “clean” and
ensure that their product has no
preservatives, is all natural and uses
fresh local ingredients—oh and they
also want it to be affordable and
shelf stable too!

66

KEEPING IT CLEAN
Even starches can fall into the natural
or not natural debate. If a starch is
referred to as "modified food starch"
it is not a natural thickener. You
will need to ask your supplier for a
natural "unmodified food starch.
There are additional ways to thicken
a product using dehydration or water
evaporation using tomato paste
(if your product is tomato based).
There are even different gums and
hydrocolloids you can experiment
with. Most hydrolloids are natural
like xanthan, gum Arabic, and gum
acacia. Gum supplier websites like
TICGums.com offer a wealth of
information about gums and how to
use them.

TRUMP “BASICALLY” FOR

MEDICAL MARIJUANA
KYMBER WARD
STAFF EDITOR
In a February 10th interview,
on The O’Reilly Factor with Bill
O’Reilly, Donald Trump weighed
in on his view of the cannabis
industry when O’Reilly started
the conversation regarding illegal
drug trafficking over state lines
from legal states. Trump agreed
that people going to Colorado to

70

get legal cannabis and selling it
over state lines is “a real problem.”
In terms of actually answering the
question at hand - what will you
do to stop the trafficking? - Trump
answered in true Presidential
Candidacy form, “I would really
want to think about that one Bill;
because in some ways I think
it’s good, in other ways it’s bad. I
do want to see what the medical
effects are.”
He also goes on to proclaim that
as far as medical marijuana goes
he is “100% in favor of it,” yet
alludes to not being in favor of
adult use by retorting to O’Reilly
with, “But what you are talking
about, perhaps not. It is causing
a lot of problems out there.”

In true O’Reilly/Trump fashion,
the pair went head-to-head about
the validity of medical marijuana.
O’Reilly taunted Trump by calling
medical marijuana ‘a ruse,’
suggesting that people just use
it to get legal pot. Trump quickly
responded that he knows several
people with ‘serious problems’
and that medicinal cannabis
indeed helps them.

While this interview does show
Trump in support of medicinal
cannabis, this does not mean
that cannabis advocates should
begin praising him as a cannabis
supporter. Only time will tell how
he intends to handle adult use
and adult use laws if elected
President later this year.

It wasn’t fine. After several attempts to
biopsy the tumor, finally on Monday,
the 13th of January, 2014 the Doctors
were able to get a sample with a CT
guided chest/lung biopsy through my
back. The X-Ray taken 4 hours after
to check the lung, showed a minor

It really did feel like she was talking
about someone else, It didn’t feel real.
I was thinking to myself, it will be fine,
Doctors will operate and take it out
somehow, it will be fine.

Friday, the 17th of January 2014, I
had the PET scan. The doctors found
that the lung mass was the primary at
5 cm, tgwo lymph nodes in the chest
and one in the base of my neck were
affected, and there was fluid around
my heart, and cancer in the pleura or
lining of the lung. The Doctors told me
as it had spread to the lining of my
lung and lymph nodes they classified
me as stage IV Terminal Lung Cancer
with a prognosis of 6-9months to live.

The ED doctor came out and
motioned for us to come into her office
and sit down not saying a word. She
opened the conversation with, "I’m
so very sorry.…..What? I’m so very
sorry. There appears to be a sizable
mass in your left lung – what? What
is it? Have you ever smoked? What?
No? Never! The look on the Doctors
face said it all. There seemed to be
silence, just the doctor looking at me
and that time seemed to be slowed
down somehow. She kept saying
sorry, sorry to give you this news so
close to Christmas. What? She said
she has contacted a Respiratory
Registrar to come down to see me to
book in for a biopsy of the mass. My
head was spinning! I recall saying a
number of times, what? No? What? I
don’t smoke, I never have, what? Well
we can remove it right? What? It’s like
I could hear myself saying the same
thing over & over but I couldn’t stop.
But I’m so healthy. What? No?

Wednesday, the 15th of January, we
got the results, Non-Small Cell Lung
Cancer (adenocarcinoma). A PET
scan was booked to see if it had
spread, as I was a non-smoker the
doctors were convinced that the lung
would not be my primary.

Monday, December 16th 2013, I had
been complaining of a small niggling
pain on my left side around my ribs
for a few days, but nothing too bad. I’d
had an hour massage on the previous
Friday, so I thought that I was just
feeling the after effects of that. As the
days went on each time I took a big
deep breath I did have slight pain on
my left side, so I got it checked out.
