Flowing fog obscures part of the Golden Gate Bridge in front of San Francisco at sunrise. | GreenState file photoLos Angeles cannabis retailers are still weeks away from being able to sell to all adults age 21 or older. Meanwhile in San Francisco, the second round of recreational stores are opening to the public. So far, the City of San Francisco has licensed 16 medical cannabis dispensaries to sell recreational cannabis.
GreenState file photoGood afternoon! It’s New Year’s resolution season and we’re keeping to our goals: more dinner parties now that the babies are getting older. Conversely, some of us have health goals for the year. To that end, there’s a novel event to check out in San Francisco Jan. 28: “Burn & Baked” — a bootcamp style workout accompanied by “Recovery Bags” of paleo breakfast cookies, cannabidiol-infused edibles, topicals and capsules.
The Emerald Cup cannabis seed market 2017. | Photo by David DownsFresh off our coverage of the massive cannabis competition The Emerald Cup in Sonoma County, we’ve brought back a story you’ve likely never heard before. It’s about seeds. Yes. The humble seed. Cannabis can grow from a single seed to a 15 foot-tall tree worth $5,000 in a single season. One fertilized female plant can yield thousands and thousands of seeds to make an entire forest of marijuana.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
