Is Japan ready to embrace cannabis and medical marijuana? We’d say Japan is closer than ever, since a major Japanese cable news company in Japan just recently featured local San Diego cannabis company, Green Carpet Growing. Green Carpet Growing is a cannabis start-up company that provides home grow consulting, grow classes and cannabis cultivation training to anyone that wants to learn how to grow cannabis plants at home.

Since cannabis and medical marijuana in Japan has been extremely taboo and frowned upon for years, this Japanese cannabis news segment has made history! Thanks to the bustling California cannabis industry, as well as what is happening in Canada with legal cannabis — Japan is starting to pay attention to the benefits of the “green rush.”

More cannabis news reports in Japan like this should lead to a much-anticipated cannabis movement in Japan.
