The name, “Fitish” was born out of Owens’ love of fitness and a desire to look good doing it. “When I go do all these great workout classes that Dallas has to offer, I notice that a lot of women wear a lot of makeup to workout,” Owens said.
So she created two CBD mists — “Don’t Sweat It,” which she said, “sets” makeup on the skin. “It locks it down. It’s actually difficult to remove makeup. We put it through a lot of sweat tests.” The other is, “Cool Down,” which she said tones down redness after a workout. The magic ingredient, Owens insists is the CBD, though the products also include green tea, peppermint, coffee, among others. “I’ve always been a huge proponent of CBD. I’ve always been a big believer in it,” Owens said.
Based on this surprising level of consumer awareness, Cowen “conservatively” sees CBD use growing to 10 percent of U.S. adults or 25 million consumers by 2025, implying a $16 billion market opportunity, Azer said.
By the end of this semester’s inaugural class of “Horticulture of Cannabis: From Seed to Harvest,” more than 300 students will understand why cannabis growers would want to keep their young plants from flowering, how to pull that off and most everything else about the prime conditions of cultivating hemp.

Acreage Wants to Be Your All-American Cannabis Company
Amidst all the noise in the cannabis industries, Acreage Holdings, Inc. (ACRGF) is slowly and methodically building an All-American cannabis company. Most of the focus in the cannabis market has been on the Canadians, so American cannabis companies have had to fight for attention.
A True Multi-State Operator
Acreage Holdings has licenses in 17 states, of which 12 are operational, while the company has licenses to process in 12 states, seven of which are now in operation. The company has licenses to operate 68 retail dispensaries in 12 states, of which 21 are currently operational in 10 states. The Botanist is its retail concept designed to appeal to both adult use and medicinal consumers.
Acreage is licensed to open four stores in its home state of New York under the company name NYCANNA. The company is also planting its flag in Queens, with its latest Botanist opening this past week on February 20. It is Acreage’s first dispensary in the New York City area.
