Heart disease is a terrible affliction that CBD oil has shown promise in helping with. As the political climate and social opinion around cannabis shifts, more cultural phenomena like Nipton California are bound to develop. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll have access to CBD treatment in hospitals and pharmacies soon. If places like Nipton keep popping up, we will see a massive change in how we use CBD oil.

Close your eyes and picture this: you’re driving along on your way to losing some money in Vegas and off to the side you notice a sign that says, “Welcome to Nipton, America’s first weed town.” Now even to the non-partaker of cannabis, it could be a fun pitstop, but to my fellow partakers, the sign should read, “Welcome to Heaven.”

David Gwyther, Chairman and President of American Green, seemed to think so when he told OTC markets,

“We are excited to lead the charge for a true ‘Green Rush’. The cannabis revolution that’s going on here in the U.S. has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century. This acquisition allows us to channel the myriad interests in cannabis production and consumption for an immediate positive impact on this community’s members and to cannabis consumers across the country. As industry leaders since 2009, we are thrilled to begin work on this first-of-its-kind eco-tourism experience for conscious cannabis consumers.”

Listen, I don’t know much about “biometric verification” or how its gonna make my cannabis experience that much better, but I mean… it sounds great! but what else could this mean for Nipton and its 20 residents? Well, let’s turn to our great buddies over at Newsweek:

“Based on tourism reports from other marijuana-legal states, Nipton could see exponential profit growth by becoming a weed destination. Following the passage of the recreational marijuana law in Colorado, the state saw a reported 77.1 million visitors in 2015, generating about $19.1 billion in marijuana profits and $1.13 billion in state and local taxes. Its record-breaking sales were up nearly 7 percent from when cannabis was first made legal the year prior.”
