These cannabis gummies keep selling out in 2023

If you've ever struggled to enjoy cannabis due to the harshness of smoking or vaping, you're not alone. That’s why these new cannabis gummies caught our eye.

Mood is an online dispensary that has invented a “joint within a gummy” that’s extremely potent yet federally-legal. Their gummies are formulated to tap into the human body’s endocannabinoid system.

Although this system was discovered in the 1990’s, farmers and scientists at Mood were among the first to figure out how to tap into it with cannabis gummies. Just 1 of their rapid onset THC gummies can get you feeling right within 5 minutes!

 IIJ Chicago Freelancing Workshop with your audience. We’d be happy to offer a discount code for your community if that’s helpful!

The Institute for Independent Journalists is presenting an all-day workshop on the business of freelancing on July 31 in Chicago! This full-day workshop, held the day before the NABJ annual convention, is designed to help freelancers develop sustainable independent journalism practices. Meet assigning editors from the New York Times, Chicago Sun-Times and other publications. Whether you're a early-stage freelancer or seasoned journalism entrepreneur, this workshop offers valuable training, including: 

  • The 3 P’s model of structuring a freelance portfolio and what to negotiate for besides higher pay. 

  • Effective networking, recruiting anchor clients, identifying your brand and niche, and knowing when to say no. 

  • A range of organization, time management, and mental health strategies.

Registration at the $49 early bird rate ends today June 5. Use the coupon code KAIT10 for a 10% discount.

If you're registered for the NABJ convention, you get a $25 discount. The workshop ran alongside the AAJA convention last summer and it was sold out, so get your tickets now!

The Institute for Independent Journalists’ mission is the financial and emotional sustainability of freelancers of color; everyone is welcome at IIJ events.
