Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Another year in the books and what a year it has been! Welcome to the last month of 2021…we have quite the round up for you this month as we round out the year. First up is Bronco Distribution. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Bronco has the advantage of being at ground zero of the cannabis industry and has had unique access to innovative startups leading to their great success in the industry. Take a look at everything this company is doing to help lead their customers to bigger sales! Did you know that in 2014 the Oxford Dictionary named the word “Vape” as their Word of the Year…be sure to check out Top Trends & News from 2021 + 2022 Predictions to find out this year’s word of the year contender. Next up is our last Shop of the Month feature of the year, Eufloria in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Many shop owners and entrepreneurs in the smoke/ head shop industry do not look like “typical” business owners, which makes sense since this industry is anything BUT typical. Pierce Wright looks like a stoner, with long hair, long beard, piercings, and tats. When a “conventional” looking business owner meets Pierce, they underestimate him, since this guy is as sharp as anyone in the industry. This story is interesting because Pierce did not have your “typical” start in the industry. Check out how he turned a consultative business into the empire it is today. Lastly, HQ would like to congratulate Cosmic Fish in Springfield, Missouri for winning the HQ Holiday Giveaway! We hope that you enjoy the products from all of our participating advertisers! And thank you to every one who so graciously sent product for the contest. We appreciate all of you! Happy Holidays and we will see you all in the New Year!

Claims of ‘Fentanyl-Laced Cannabis’ Are Common, But Are They Accurate?
