Exciting News for Our Community: The Future of Cannabis

We are thrilled to share a pivotal update that promises to significantly impact our dispensary and the broader cannabis community. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is moving towards rescheduling cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule III. This change recognizes cannabis's lower potential for abuse and its accepted medical use, reshaping its legal landscape.

How This Reshaping Benefits Us

Reduced Tax Burden: Currently, as a Schedule I substance, we face stringent federal tax regulations that prohibit typical business expense deductions under Section 280E of the Internal Revenue Code. With the move to Schedule III, our dispensary can anticipate substantial relief. This change will allow us to deduct expenses like any other business, reducing our tax burden and enabling us to reinvest in improving our services and expanding our offerings. delta9 vs delta8

Easier Access to Banking Services

The banking challenges for cannabis businesses are well-known, stemming from its federal classification. Rescheduling cannabis to Schedule III would normalize banking relations and financial services, making it simpler for us to manage operations, secure loans, and grow our business. This change could also enhance safety by reducing the need to handle and store large amounts of cash.

Greater Legitimacy and Community Acceptance

This federal shift signals growing recognition of the positive roles cannabis can play medically and recreationally. It helps dismantle long-standing stigmas around cannabis, encouraging more community members to explore its benefits without fear of legal repercussions.

New Opportunities for Growth and Innovation

As regulations evolve, so too can our product offerings. This includes potentially new FDA-regulated cannabis products that meet stringent safety standards, offering our customers peace of mind and expanding our market to those who might have been hesitant previously.

Looking Forward

The process is not instantaneous. It involves a public commentary period and possibly an administrative hearing, reflecting a transparent and democratic process that considers multiple perspectives. As this unfolds, we will stay on the forefront, advocating for regulations that support our community's needs and keeping you informed every step of the way.

This is a momentous time for all of us in the cannabis community. Your continued support as we navigate these changes is invaluable. Together, we're not just witnessing history—we're making it.

Tony Ramirez: From the Wrestling Ring to the Cannabis Counter

At Kansas City Cannabis, our staff are as diverse as the strains we carry. This month’s spotlight shines on Tony Ramirez, a budtender at our Kearney location, whose journey from the wrestling ring to the cannabis counter is as thrilling as a championship bout.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas, Tony's life is a dynamic blend of physical prowess and cultural passions. By day, he serves our community with the healing powers of cannabis, and by night, he transforms into the "Iron Pitbull," grappling his way through the ranks of Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling (KCXW). A self-proclaimed anime enthusiast, Tony’s favorite is Naruto, reflecting his own relentless drive and determination.

Tony’s introduction to cannabis was much like his approach in the ring—tentative at first, then full-on engagement. Starting as a youthful experiment with friends, his appreciation for cannabis deepened profoundly once he joined Kansas City Cannabis. Transitioning from an Amazon warehouse to the frontline of cannabis retail, Tony was floored by the plant's potential. “I didn’t know the depths of how much the plant could help people,” Tony reflects, echoing the surprise of an unexpected knockout punch.

As a wrestler, Tony constantly faces the physical toll of combat. Cannabis has been his tag team partner in battling the aches and pains, providing relief without the side effects of traditional painkillers. He views the ritual of rolling blunts and joints as a grounding technique, a way to signal a cooldown period after intense bouts, much like a wrestler catching his breath after executing a perfect piledriver.

Stepping into his role as a budtender, Tony brings the same energy and precision as a wrestler performing a well-practiced move. Each customer interaction is handled with the care and strategy of a seasoned fighter, knowing when to advance and when to hold back. “The customer service aspect is much different than working in a warehouse. Here, I get to meet all different walks of life, brought together by this plant. It’s a cool aspect of the industry,” Tony explains, appreciating the diverse community that cannabis brings together, much like a wrestling fanbase.

When it comes to his favorite strains, Tony opts for ones that deliver a high-impact experience. He praises a memorable Skittlez and Rainbow Sherbet cross for its standout flavor, while for post-match recovery, he relies on strains like Blue Blockers and Juggernaut to help him bounce back like a true champion.

Reflecting on the industry's evolution, Tony notes the significant shifts in public perception and regulatory frameworks. “The market is pretty evolved already,” he observes, predicting that cannabis will soon be as integral to Missouri's culture as wrestling is to his life.

For those new to cannabis, Tony offers sage advice, akin to a coach preparing a wrestler for their first match: “Low and slow with edibles, and take your environment into account when smoking.”

As we witness the stigmas around cannabis crumbling like a defeated opponent on the mat, Tony Ramirez stands as a beacon of resilience and camaraderie, embodying the fighting spirit that both wrestling and cannabis advocacy share.

Packarillos - Purple ZaZa 3-pack .75g infused blunts
(Blue Dream x Rare Dankness)

Smell: had this amazing gassy smell that reminded me of that "old weed" smoke i use to smoke on back in the day!
Taste: a very heavy creamy smoke that really didn't have a signature flavor but definitely did on the exhale. Had a very skunky exhale.
Affects: The affects were a very heavy body high that almost left you wanting to sit down. Out the gate that affects hit you in the eyes but very quickly transfers to the body which literally makes you want to find your next seat. Leaving you a little dazed and confused after for sure!
Recommendations: This is definitely more for someone who has experience in smoking heavier products and also someone who prefer larger hits, with the glass piece being involved, it almost grantees a big hit every drag.

infused lemon bars infused lemon bars

What You'll Need:

    For the Crust
    • Flour, butter, and a pinch of salt.
    • Cannabis-infused butter (ensure the cannabis is decarboxylated before infusing with the butter).
    For the Lemon Filling
    • Fresh lemon juice and zest.
    • Eggs and sugar.
    • A touch of flour to thicken the mixture.

Highlights of the Recipe
  1. Prepare the Infused Butter: Start by decarboxylating your cannabis to activate the THC, then gently simmer it with butter over low heat. Strain the mixture to remove the plant material, and your cannabis-infused butter is ready for cooking.
  2. Begin with the Base: Combine your dry ingredients and mix in the cannabis-infused butter to form a crumbly crust mixture. Press this into a baking dish and bake until golden.
  3. Lemony Layer: In a separate bowl, whisk together lemon juice, zest, eggs, and sugar, adding flour to ensure the mixture sets nicely upon baking.
  4. Bake and Cool: Pour the lemon filling over the pre-baked crust and return it to the oven. Once baked, allow it to cool completely, then refrigerate to set.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Cut into squares, dust with powdered sugar, and serve chilled.

This easy-to-follow recipe is perfect for a spring gathering or a cozy night in. The use of cannabis-infused butter not only enhances the flavor but also provides a gentle, enjoyable effect that complements the tangy sweetness of the lemon.

Remember, always start with a lower dose of cannabis when cooking and adjust according to your tolerance and the potency of your product. Also make sure the dish is clearly labeled, and put in a place where only adults can reach. Enjoy responsibly and relish the flavors of spring with Kansas City Cannabis!
