Ecologist James P. McMahon has been developing water filtration systems for more than 10 years and worked on water quality and river restorations for ten years prior to that. With the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, McMahon has ventured into a new sector of the water filtration industry – developing purification systems that provide optimum water quality for growing marijuana plants.
McMahon’s company, Elevate 420, specializes in providing water purification systems to home, retail and wholesale marijuana growers. Each are designed with the science of marijuana growing in mind. McMahon designed the Bud Booster™ water filter specifically for home and retail marijuana growers.
“Growers interested in producing large, healthy buds really must eliminate toxins like fluoride, chlorine, and chloramine in the water they use to grow,” McMahon said. His Bud Booster water filters do just that. “The Bud Booster water filter is the best filter for growing marijuana in locations where total dissolved solids are 300 parts per million or less,” he said.
McMahon recently spent extensive time in Denver, Colo., analyzing growing conditions and learning what growers are using for water filtration.

“What I saw in Denver is that very few growers were taking into consideration that chloramine and fluoride need to be removed from the water because they can inhibit bud growth,” McMahon said. “The fluoride in municipal water systems is known to interfere with phosphorous uptake,” McMahon said.
According to Matt Bickel, senior grower at LoDo Wellness Center, a medical and recreationalin Denver, “Fluoride in water causes the lockout of phosphorus which is the key ingredient to growing big buds.” Additionally, “There really is a benefit (to using the right water filter) because a grower will typically recuperate the cost in one harvest if the rest of the garden is functioning properly,” Bickel said.
In his work as a scientist, McMahon learned to match the water treatment method to the actual contaminants present in the water being treated. This results in the most effective treatment and the healthiest water. “Using appropriately filtered water means healthy, vigorous plants that reach maximum bud size and potency,” McMahon said.

Legal marijuanaare notoriously plagued by problems of customer retention. A new mobile app from DispensaryMobile.com addresses this problem with a one of a kind solution.
Medical marijuana dispensaries almost universally are facing problems of high turnover customer loyalty and patient retention. The highly competitive field finds different dispensaries often engaged in price wars involving coupons, deep discounts and other tactics which make it easy for customers to jump fromto dispensary. Dispensary Mobile has approached this problem with a unique solution – a new iPhone and Android app that makes staying connected with customers, keeping their loyalty and increasing profits all much simpler and easy.
“The main way to keep customers from being lured away in our industry is to stay connected,” commented Nash Ryker, a partner in the company. “Our app offers all the perks and conveniences that consumers are looking for in a mobile app, such as a live menu and coupons, but without exposing your patients to all your competitor’s deals and ads every time they use it. Which is what’s happening on the popular mobile apps their using now, such as WeedMaps and Leafly.”
The mobile app makes delivering and redeeming exclusive mobile specials quick and easy in an innovative way designed to enhance the patient’s cannabis shopping experience. Since the service is offered as white-label, it will be branded uniquely to each dispensary and will save them the $15k+ it would normally cost to develop a similar app on their own.
In this ever-connected digital internet-age we live in, modern cannabis consumers expect mobile connectivity, and that’s exactly what the app provides. After all, a successful dispensary needs to think outside of the box to retain customers and keep them coming back over the long-term if they hope to prosper and be successful in a market that is sure to become more competitive as time goes on.
Demos are being offered at DispensaryMobile.com and so far the app has been quick to receive an enthusiastic response.
Tom J., from California recently said, “Our MMj collective andis in a very competitive area. Maybe the most competitive in our state if not the country. After looking into the Dispensary Mobile app I know this going to be hugely useful and will change the way our business model works for the better. I tip my hat to the developers for a job well done.”
