The Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce (C4) is a membership organization made up of businesses that are licensed marijuana operators in the State of Colorado, as well as authorized vendors, and the businesses that serve them. The purpose of the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce is: to provide cannabis businesses with advocacy at the Colorado General Assembly and local governments; to provide representation during the ongoing rule making process by regulators; to provide education for marijuana businesses on best practices in the industry; to provide education to lawmakers, regulators, and the public about the efforts of licensed and regulated marijuana businesses to be good partners in our community, and to provide accurate information to the media about issues that affect the marijuana industry.
Our mission is to responsibly administer and enforce medical and retail marijuana laws and regulation in a fair and equitable manner by implementing efficient and effective fiscal management policies, operable enforcement strategies and collaborative partnerships with stakeholders that establish public trust and value in the agency.
The culture of cannabis, that’s what we’re here to talk about. The Cannabist is a place of ideas, people, art, food and news. In this space we’ll share stories of medical inspirations, basement hilarity, state house debates, earthy aromas, kitchen triumphs and more. As marijuana’s coming-out continues, we’ll report journalistically from our homebase in Denver, Colo. — the site of recreational marijuana’s first legal sale in the modern world on Jan. 1, 2014. But our reach will span the globe as we address cannabis’ ever-expanding role in our weekly lives via news coverage, pot-rooted recipes, arts features, strain and gear reviews, lifestyle profiles, business articles and more, more, more.
We are a professional, responsive and effective trade association working on behalf of all sectors of the hemp industry and support use of all parts of the hemp plant for its many beneficial uses. In the 1800’s hemp was the most cultivated crop in the U.S. It’s time for hemp to return to America where it can become a significant source of U.S. jobs and provide a domestic supply of hemp for the $150 million worth of hemp that is now imported into the U.S.
Industrial hemp means a plant of the genus cannabis and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent on a dry weight basis. The Industrial Hemp Program registers growers of industrial hemp and samples the crop to verify that the THC concentration does not exceed 0.3% on dry weight basis. Registration is required for both commercial production as well as for research and development with industrial hemp.
