Who am I, and Why Cannabis?
Cannabis sativa and hemp plants circulated through history with style and poise by remaining versatile in its abundance of applications. These plants are able to stretch from consumption as edible treats, to applications in building materials and renewable energy sources. Over the past few decades, numerous entrepreneurs and medical doctors have vigorously backed the progression of support for usage of cannabis in the United States. I personally believe that this is the perfect time to utilize the plant as a resource during the massive restructuring of the global economic sphere. My name is Jarius Pierre-Toussaint and I am excited to begin both my professional and recreational adventure into the world of cannabis and hemp. I personally seek to enjoy both the recreational thrill and explore the economic benefits of this plant’s myriad applications. Hopefully, over time, I will be able to build upon interactions here and represent a platform for sharing our odd journey though the adventurous world of Cannabis and Hemp.
In 1996, California legislation took a ginormous leap of faith into the path of decriminalization and strategic legalization of Cannabis in the United States. Over the span of 20 odd years, 29 states followed closely behind the trailblazers and implemented medical marijuana into the social sphere. This defining moment in medical history invigorated entrepreneurs and small business owners to get invested in the opportunities provided by possible recreational uses. From that moment on, businesses were booming. Similar to the Oregon gold rush, people from all over the country lined up to get their medical dispensary licenses and quickly dive into the market to make their riches. To these green thumbed individuals and collectives, money was literally growing on trees. California alone made 2.75 billion dollars from legalized recreational cannabis. California ultimately boosted their economy by incorporating the controlled substance into the economic environment. The prosperity produced by Cannabis is taxed and still supports the local state government’s projects and initiatives.

In continuation, collectives have also sought out social justice opportunities that use the versatility of both the hemp and the cannabis flower as a platform for change. ICON, a peculiar company, utilizes technology to 3D print homes at a faster and cheaper rate that classic building methods couldn’t hope to compete with. Once federal legalization of hemp is incorporated into International trade laws, these 3D homes will be cheaper and faster to produce. One MIT student in particular, Chad Knutsen proposed means to make this idea into a reality.

Over the last few years, Chefs and Scientist have experimented with extraction and infusion methods for producing both consumable and topical applications of the cannabis flower’s high concentration of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). These topical treatments provide localized relief from pain without the heady, psychoactive effects of smoking or ingestion.
Decarbaked is a community driven Cannabis Culinary Network situated primarily on the incoming Decarbaked App. Managed by CEO Jarius Pierre-Toussaint and geared towards offering a platform where infusion recipes, extraction specialist, homebred enthusiast, and product marketers can meet up and produce a promising future.
In conclusion, my personal admiration for cannabis lies in the infusion with edible treats, beverages, and delicious plates of food. We seek to navigate a whole stock pile of trial and error desserts, delectable dishes and unique seasonal deliverables of downloadable content. We will persavere until we are able to produce our very own style of edible production. Hopefully over the span of our time here at 805, all of us will get to experience the joy of competition in this field as well.
Until next time, stay baked!
