Cannabis Stocks Are on the Rise

MJ stock news
It is very pleasant to see that my investment in Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB) was a wise decision back in the day. While looking over the financial market news I was pleasantly surprised to see my stock mentioned in the “Ones To Watch” by Investopedia (which by itself is something special). It was accompanied by Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), Canopy Growth Corp. (CGC) and a whole slew of pharmaceutical companies that are scattering to cash in on the Big Green Rush.


10 Useful Tips on How To Get More Twitter Followers


Although Twitter seems to be going through some turbulent times, it is still one of the top social networks in the World. And having a large presence on a world-wide stage like that is very important for anyone who is in the “digital” business. As I have grown my own Twitter follower base, I have compiled a list of useful tips and tricks to help you gain a larger share of the audience.

  1. Customize your profile page. – 1). Unique image. 2). Unique header. 3). Unique color scheme. 4). Tags in biography.
  2. Add a FOLLOW button on your blog.
  3. Add a Twitter SHARE button on your blog posts.
  4. Link to your Twitter profile from your blog / bio / info / contact pages.
  5. Pin your best and most important tweets and poles to your profile page. Switch them up often.
  6. Embed tweets in your blog posts. Write about Twitter.
  7. Avoid sending multiple tweets in a short period of time.
  8. Stop sending automated DMs.
  9. DO NOT use TrueTwit validation.
  10. Vary the type of content you share.


1). Customize your profile page – seems pretty basic and self-explanatory, but there is a large segment of Twitter users who miss out on opportunities just because their profile looks like a generic bot. First thing to do is add a unique profile image. If possible, an image of yourself. It doesn’t have to be a recent image or could be a childhood picture or whatever but make sure it’s of you, if you got to go for the personal touch. If you are managing the Twitter account for a brand, then tag individual tweets so people know who they are talking to. Second step is to create a unique header image. This should be an image that you took yourself, or an image of you or your brand. It is important that the color scheme matches with your blog or company page. And maybe even uses some of the same graphical elements. the final step is to write an engaging biography that is an opportunity to tell people what you do and what you’re about. By conveying the right message you will attract the right followers and like-minded people with shared interests. Be sure to include a few important hashtags in your bio and maybe even a @SovietStoner mention. That will guarantee that you will pop up in searches a lot more.

2). Add a FOLLOW button on your blog. – add a social media button or Twitter follow widget to your blog. Using a follow button will make sure to let people know that you are open to connecting via social media, and it will make them stay on your blog longer. Adding multiple buttons for various social networks will make sure your readers can find you easier.

3). Add a Twitter SHARE button on your blog posts. – adding a Twitter SHARE button to your post makes it easy for your readers to tweet your posts. Make sure your Twitter username is included in your tweets. This will do several useful things for you. First it will make sure that the links to your blog are spread through THEIR segment of the social media market, creating a slew of backlinks, which is a huge plus for your SEO. Second, the tweets and retweets will raise the visibility of your own Twitter account.

4). Link to your Twitter profile from your blog / bio / info / contact pages. – Once again with the backlinks !! Make sure your readers can connect with you no matter what platform they are on.

5). Pin your best and most important tweets and poles to your profile page. – If you have something valuable or important to share, then Pin that tweet to the top of your profile. Whenever someone visits your profile, they will see this tweet pinned at the very top, and will be encouraged to like and share. Try to switch them up when you need to bring attention to a certain tweet or topic.

6). Embed tweets in your blog posts. Write about Twitter. – If you want to draw attention to any particular tweets, embedding them into your blog posts can boost engagement and help increase your following.

7). Avoid sending multiple tweets in a short period of time. – This will only cause your readers to get annoyed and unfollow you. If you have several tweets that you want to publish, try spreading out the publishing times. (I would say once every hour is perfect) There are several free tools available to help you publish to Twitter at a schedule of your choosing.

8). Stop sending automated DMs. – This can work as a temporary tactic to generate traffic or cross promote your other social networks, when done right, but the side effect is that you will lose followers. Seriously people, we do not need to be SPAMMED in our Direct Message box.

9). DO NOT use TrueTwit validation. – OK, this one is a bit of a relic. But it is still very annoying, and I still see a lot of people using it. So if you are not familiar with TrueTwit Validation, it is an add-on for Twitter, and it is free and easily available from Twitters own Add-On page. The add-on seeks to “protect” you from connecting with fake accounts (bots), by adding another level of verification. The user who wishes to follow you is sent a Direct Message from your Twitter profile, asking him to click a link to verify that he is a real human. If that user clicks the link, the add-on verifies him and allows him to follow you. The very NEGATIVE effect comes right after, when your very own TrueTwit add-on starts SPAMMING your very own list of your very own approved followers. Talk about annoying. I never understood why people use that add-on. If people want to follow you, why would you add another barrier for them to overcome???

10). Vary the type of content you share. – Just sharing an endless stream of links won’t help you much. You need to put up some visual material to keep your readers and viewers interested and engaged. Mixing up high quality images and videos from YouTube into your tweets will keep your readers’ attention.

How to Get More Twitter Followers

How to get more #Twitter followers? – I asked Google. Google said: “Well, it’s a long complicated process, but if you keep putting out good content that people like, and tweet several times a day, and follow a lot of people, and follow people that follow you back, you should do all right.” Hmm. I can do that.

I am now starting my ascend to the internet celebrity status. I have decided to grow my Twitter following to a hundred thousand followers. I understand it’s going to take me some time, but I’m prepared to put in the effort. Did a little research last night, started following some interesting people. Pretty much maxed out my following limit by following like 900 strangers. But I’m already seeing progress. I already got 3 brand new followers since last night. So anyway the numbers as they stand right now are, I am currently following 910 people and I have 23 followers I also have a 161 tweets we’ll see how it goes.

Top 5 Ways Industrial Cannabis (Hemp) Can Improve Our World

Modern Day Uses for the Cannabis Plant
Modern Day Uses for the Cannabis Plant
  1. Paper and Paper Products – Why cut down millions of our trees that take 20 years to regrow, if we can get the fiber we need for our paper from industrial cannabis (Hemp), that takes 4 months to regrow?? Hemp is an excellent source of fiber for paper, newsprint, cardboard and packaging, as well as any other kind of specialty paper products.
  2. Textiles – Industrial Textiles like twine, rope, nets, canvas, tarps, carpets, linings and molded parts. Consumer textiles like apparel, diapers, fine fabrics, denim, handbags and shoes.
  3. Building Materials -Hemp hurd is the soft inner core of the hemp stem. It is highly absorbent and rich in cellulose which offers thermal and acoustic insulation. Fiberboard from hemp can be used in building, and furniture making. Hemp hurd can be used as fiberglass substitute and insulation substitute. Hempcrete, or Hemplime is a bio-composite material that is used for construction and insulation. It is easier to work with then traditional mixes, as it is lightweight and acts as an insulator and moisture regulator. It is not as brittle as concrete, and does not need expansion joints. It has been successfully used in France since the early 1990s, to construct non-weight bearing insulating infill walls, as Hempcrete does not have the required strength for constructing foundations, and is instead supported by the frame. It is a low density material, and its resistance to cracking makes it ideal for construction in areas with seismic activity.
  4. Food Source – Hemp seeds are an excellent source of easily digestible protein. Hemp seeds could be used both raw and as oils they produce. The nut of the seed can be used in breads, salads, granola, cereals, hemp milk and dairy products, as well as protein powders. Hemp seeds can also be used as animal and bird feed.
  5. Industrial and Consumer Chemicals – Apart from nutritional values hemp seeds can be used to produce oils which can substitute for fuels, lubricants, inks, varnishes, solvents, coatings, putty, paints and plastics. Consumers will benefit from hemp soap, shampoo, bath gels, creams, lotions, balms and other specialized cosmetics. (and I am not even including the medical marijuana market, this is strictly from the industrial cannabis, the hemp)

Aside from the obvious economic benefits we can derive from Hemp, there are many basic agricultural benefits from planting cannabis. Hemp can improve our air by absorbing large quantities of CO2, and releasing much needed oxygen. Hemp cultivation will help with soil improvement during crop rotation, as well as do wonders for the soils fertility. Deep roots are natural soil aerator and when hemp is grown in the same soil that has been drained of it’s nutrients by other cultures (like wheat and corn), it helps restore the soil balance quicker.
