RIP Big Buddha: excerpts from our interview in 2022
With a heavy heart, I write this blog on our dear friend Milo Yung, founder & brains behind The Original Big Buddha Family Farms as well as the founder & face of the Big Buddha Seeds, (from whom he split from in recent years) has tragically passed away in his sleep after some time struggling with health issues. Michael Wei Hung NG, aka Milo Yung Aka Big Buddha, passed away on Thursday, 27th of April 2023.
Who was Big Buddha?
Big Buddha rose to fame in the mid-noughties with his 2006 Cannabis Cup win & his genetic workings using the Cheese strain after managing to score a cut from the infamous Zorro, then-editor of Red Eye magazine, which he forged his version of by outcrossing it to

Spannabis Trade Show
Spannabis 2023 was an event which nurtured the growth of cannabis culture and free-spirited minds as an eclectic flurry of the world's cannabis connoisseurs and enthusiasts united under one roof in the energizing city of Barcelona, Spain.
As the week of the Spannabis show approached, chaotic energy was whizzing around the Puresativa HQ in true trade show fashion. Some weeks after the whirlwind event housing the international cannabis industry, I have begun to reflect on our time at Spannabis. Each time I rewind to moments from the electrifying event, it feels more and more like a movie. Spannabis 2023 was one for the books, a sentiment shared amongst many of us, so it's only fitting to start from the beginning.

4/20 is an unofficial Cannabis holiday on April 20th each year, following the American date and time notation form where the month is first, followed by the day. Although the origins have been a hot topic of discussion for many years, in many ways, you can draw similarities from these discussions to conversations on the future of Cannabis in contemporary times, where, despite rampant developments, a universal consensus is far from a reality. Regardless, we'll walk you through the most credible narrative of how the phrase and unofficial holiday may have come, so buckle in, roll one up and get comfortable as we try to take you through history!

The Early Days of Cannabis and the law
The History of Medical Cannabis has been one that has been fraught with difficulties due to the lengthy history of prohibition that has routinely infringed on the liberties of medical Cannabis patients worldwide. The history of medical Cannabis has been more contradictory than unfavourable for the substance. For instance, in 1553, King Henry VIII imposed restrictions on the public that required every 60-acre-plus household under strict instruction to grow hemp or face a stiff fine. Often landowners defied this law, and the penalties of £5.00 were severe at the time; this meant that the business of detecting and fining agricultural farms without a farm was highly profitable. This legislation

I sat with one of the founders and CEOs of D-ODR to discuss his D-ODR journey.
Having had a close relationship with the brains behind D-ODR, I wanted to share his story, and an in-person interview was what I felt was most authentic.
D-ODR's founders have had a long history within this industry in other business ventures, including the highly sought-after Kenex Scales. I realised I had never really probed much into what landed him in this industry. I knew he didn't have much personal relationship with the plant, so I was curious because he managed to execute products to the highest level for people who smoked. For example, with D-ODR, if I didn't know anything about the inventors, I would've assumed smokers created the product. The level of thought behind every step, fragrance
