DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Todd Mitchem, chief revenue officer of O.PenVAPE, the nation's largest cannabis brand, will moderate a panel of experts at the Northeast CannaBusiness Symposium, 9:20am to 10:50am on Saturday, March 15, Courtyard Boston Downtown, 275 Tremont St., Boston, MA 02116.
The event is produced by the National Cannabis Industry Association and the panel discussion will focus on the testing and extraction science of cannabis. Mitchem was chosen not only because he represents O.penVAPE but because he has participated in and moderated many panel discussions during his career as a corporate leader prior to making the switch to the cannabis industry.
"I am very proud of the work of the NCIA. The fact that they have invited me to moderate this expert panel is humbling. This is an important forum for O.penVAPE and those who want to learn about the cannabis business", noted Mitchem.
Known as the "Google of Cannabis," O.penVAPE is the market leader in the manufacture of medicinal and recreational cannabis oils which it produces through affiliates using CO2 extraction or Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE). Since February 1, 2014, O.penVAPE sells four-to-five units every minute of every day at $25 to $55 each. While in Massachusetts, Todd also will be talking with potential licensees in the state who wish to license the O.penVAPE brand.
"As Massachusetts continues to prepare for cannabis use and regulations, there are many entrepreneurs interested in the CO2 extraction process, which is the most natural and effective way to extract beneficial oils from plant matter," Mitchem said. "O.penVAPE sees great potential here."
Mitchem said O.PenVAPE, as the market leader, has established networks with successful licensees in Colorado, Washington and California, with Oregon beginning operations soon. O.penVAPE is poised to develop partnerships as soon as possible in Massachusetts. Mitchem will be conducting meetings to vet O.PenVAPE business licensees in the state.
"As the national leader, we have the systems, structures, leadership and professional outlook in place to ensure the success of our affiliates," Mitchem said. "We understand the importance of communicating that cannabis use is an adult product that should be used responsibly, so its medicinal and recreational benefits can be put to good use."
O.penVAPE is the largest national cannabis brand in the United States and has been featured on CNN, CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, and many news outlets around the world. O.penVAPE, through affiliates licensed to sell its cannabis filled cartridges, vaporizer devices and related products, distributes is products for use with cannabis oil in states that have legalized cannabis sales. O.penVAPE, with branding licensing agreements, distributes its products to legally authorized cannabis operators around the United States. With the tag line, "It's what's inside that counts," O.PenVAPE leverages knowledge from it's affiliated Colorado-based labs, Organa Labs and Bakked. These two state-of-the-art cannabis oil extraction facilities extract cannabis oil and fill cartridges for the Colorado market. The knowledge gained by these organizations is then shared with branding licensees nationwide who, with authorization from their respective states, also extract, fill, package and distribute O.penVAPE branded products in their states.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
