History Of Cannabis
History of Cannabis dates back to around 2800 B.C. and was used extensively in Chinese Medicine. In fact according to the documentary by Chris Rice (https://youtu.be/X2p6qFT_Zjg ) Cannabis The Lost History. As early as 3000 B.C. Based on the evidence — especially the discovery that the human body is equipped with a cannabinoid system it appears our relationship with cannabis goes back to the very dawn of the human species. There are cannabinoid receptors in the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more.
So, your body is already hard-wired to respond to cannabinoids through this unique receptor system. It is still not know how deep the impact on your body is but the receptors play a very important role in many of your bodily functions including metabolic regulation, pain, anxiety, bone growth, and immune functions.
This plant can do so much more than just health related things. It can be used to make paper, clothes, rope (the Navies around the world used them as they are very strong.) Think of the trees this will save.
This beautiful plant could do so much for the world. Why it has been withheld for so many years? You have only to look to Big Pharma. for that answer and if they have their way they will take it away again and make you have to get a prescription and then there is the threat of Bayer (Monsanto) I will do a separate post in that!!! If you still need to do some more research on the goodness of CBD I have added some resources for you to check out.

What Celebrities Use CBD?
What Celebrities use CBD?
Actually, there are quite a few that are very vocal about using CBD and their support of complete legalization.
Seth Rogen: He believes so strongly in the benefits of cannabis for Alzheimer’s prevention that he spoke in Congress.
Whoopie Goldberg: A well-known cannabinoid advocate and consumer. She’s used a vape pen for years to treat her pain, stress, and glaucoma.
Morgan Freeman: Uses both CBD and THC to treat the fibromyalgia he suffers after a serious accident in 2008.
Tommy Chong: He credits the effects of CBD oil when discussing his recovery from prostate cancer in 2012.
Montel Williams: Williams suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and has been a proponent of legalization ever since he tried it and found relief. He has been an outspoken advocate since 1999.
Melissa Etheridge: began using CBD after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004.
Oliver Stone: He returned from the Vietnam War with PSTD. He felt it kept him from going insane and so he could adjust to life again.
Snoop Dogg: He largely credits his transition from a hate-filled-gangster to a love-giver to cannabis.
Michael J. Fox: As a longtime sufferer of Parkinson’s disease, Michael J. Fox has used cannabis to counteract the effects of the chronic disease since he was diagnosed.
There are more than these listed. It is being proven more day by day that CBD can help many ailments that we suffer with.

What Is CBD?
What is CBD? It stands for cannabidiol, a compound found in weed or marijuana plants that relieves pain, reduces anxiety, helps sleep, etc. The compound CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of 113 identified cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa.
It is not psychoactive, meaning that it won’t make you ‘high’ which is the sensation most commonly associated with cannabis. Or smoking weed as it is known. It has been reported to offer a range of health and medicinal benefits. That is why it has gained so much popularity of late.
CBD and all of its properties have been suppressed from people for years and years. (my personal belief is that it started during prohibition people were smoking pot when they could not drink.) Do you remember a movie during that time called Reefer Madness? You can find it on You-Tube. It was meant to scare people into not smoking pot. Because of that, the whole plant was demonized and so we have not been able to have the benefits that it offers.
You can read some of the Benefits of CBD in this article: HERE

What Is Proximity Marketing?
What Is Proximity Marketing?
Proximity Marketing and the Beacon technology is not new. It has been around since early in 2000. Until just a few months ago it was used to the benefit of large corporations only. That is about to change because the use of the beacon technology and Proximity Marketing has now entered the Network Marketing arena.
You can see a video about Genusity HERE
This new technology will change the way small businesses advertise their goods or services. It does not matter if the business is on or offline. It does not matter if it is local or international.
What are these Beacons? Each Beacon is a tiny microcomputer and it uses Bluetooth to send a signal to a notification to every enabled Android phone within a certain radius. That depends on the beacon you are using that is right for your business.
Genusity has 6 different beacons to choose from. I will go into each one separately but if you want to go and take a look before I get to it you should go and take a look. https://genusity.com/chrisshouse
I know the Genusity Company will stay on top of all the newest technology as it becomes available. To be part of something so exciting and so amazing is just a dream come true! (One of the owners Randy is such a nerd 🙂 he is totally thriving on this stuff.)
To read the first post I did on Who Genusity is good for you can read it right HERE
We live in such exciting times! While sometimes I long for the simpler times of my youth (yes I am older lol) living in the present and keeping on top of all the new things coming our way just amazes me every day. Do you feel the same way? Do you look forward to the amazing things we will be seeing happen?
Until next time Dream Big Dreams!
Traditional Advertising Is No Longer Viable
Traditional advertising is no longer viable would you agree? Not many people read newspapers any longer. As far as television is concerned if I am watching regular cable when the ads come on that’s when I do things that need to be done. Either that or I watch Hulu or Netflix when I can. How often do you listen to radio ads? Me I usually have a CD in trying to improve my mind. Billboards are too expensive and are almost obsolete.
Where Do You Advertise Then?
Let me ask you a question. The last time you were at your favorite coffee or tea shop how many people were looking at their cell phones? How about at the mall or a restaurant? I have noticed almost everyone has their phone out. In fact, cell phone advertising is predicted to be a 700 Billion Dollar business.
Genusity has the solution you are looking for for the next generation of advertising. To find out more about Genusity please click right HERE

Who Is Genusity Good For? Number Four
Who Is Genusity Good For? Number Four Yes, Car Salesmen. This will be perfect for Car Lots. It is not easy to be the first to get to a person who drives on the lot. What if a salesperson had a beacon? If the message displayed on phones said “Need A Car Ask For Chris” So people would come onto the lot and already be looking for that salesman!
They, of course, would have a back office and could email people with car specials. Everyone will have their own back office that will have CRM and auto-responder all for $15.00 a month. The back office will allow you to change the message on the beacon anytime they want. Also if they want to do more advertising there will also be banner and landing page builder.
Within the back office will also be the ability to offer 3 days 2-night vacations. These can be used to get emails. Or new customers. By the
way, would you like a 3 day 2-night vacation certificate? These are
not trashy certificates. There are even some cruises and all you pay for
are the taxes. Sign up for more information about Genusity and I will
send you a certificate. Just click HERE
Of course, this does not have to just be for Car Salesmen. Big Rigs, Boats, Trailers, U-Haul type vehicles, RV Salesmen. How about Tiny Houses?
The possibilities are endless and I will have more for you in upcoming posts.

Who Is Genusity Good For? Number Three
Genusity Number Three
Genusity will serve all small business very well!
We have discussed how it will help all aspects of Real Estate.
From the agents to the Broker. ( Just a thought, if you are building a Genusity business and you sign up for Genusity with you, and then took it to the Broker after testing for themselves the agent could then benefit 2 ways. Signing the broker and still using them to sell houses.) Read my thoughts about Real Estate Here
We have discussed how Uber, Lyft, and Taxi drivers could benefit. (Any kind of driver really.) and as an afterthought Bike Messengers!
Read about that HERE
Now let us talk about how small non-chain restaurants could benefit. I know for a fact that small mom and pop diners, pizza parlors have to spend bundles on advertising to keep their business in front of people. Val-Paks are no longer inexpensive, newspaper and radio ads are very expensive and the ROI is dismal.
So how are 6 different beacons going to help these businesses and save them a boatload of advertising dollars?
They will choose the beacon or beacons that are right for their business and be able to broadcast to anyone that is in a proximity of their business offering them a special for coming on in. If there is a delivery component to their business the drivers could have a beacon on them as they deliver the message will go out to more people.
Now the beacons and their ability to generate business are wonderful but even more exciting is these small businesses will have a POWERFUL back office to generate even more business. Specials will be able to be emailed to customers that are only for them. (We will discuss how they can get emails in another article)
Think of this also what if they do not have time to do all the behind the scene stuff and they want to hire you to do it for them? They will be able to afford to hire you because you are already saving them so much money. Of course, the beacons will also be a tax advantage as they can be written off as a business expense.

Not Only Good But Fantastic! Genusity Number Two
Now, what about a portion of the transportation field? Namely Uber, Lyft, and Taxi drivers. ( I just saw an as on TV for Uber Eats!!! So Uber will have to have drivers that deliver the food. Talk about the power of suggestion)
There are several ways these drivers could profit from Genusity beacons. If they have a side business online and I know many of them do. Our beacon that plugs right into the USB in the car can carry the landing page for that business. Think of the passengers in the car being driven will get the notification and not even know it was coming from their driver.
When they stop at a stop light or stop sign or they pull up to a curb to let out their passengers depending on the device anyone within the range of the beacon will get a notification.
Something else these drivers could do would visit businesses and let them know about Genusity and when they get their own beacons the driver would carry the beacon around the city for them. If it is a Restaurant they could have a special pop up. So the driver who brought the business into Genusity would be making residual from the business and also helping them. It is a win-win situation.
The possibilities are just endless as to what these Genusity beacons will be able to do. Go HERE to see all the different devices! You will be amazed!
PS I just thought of something else! What about a messenger bike person. That would be a very good fit!
Who Is Genusity Good For? Number One
Genusity is a powerful tool that any business on or offline can use to maximize their advertising dollar.
I am starting with Real Estate and its many functions. I start here because I was a residential agent for many years and I know what the cost of advertising was and the low ROI but you still needed to do it so the customer would be satisfied you were doing all you could to sell their house.
Genusity will be a big Help in all aspects of Real Estate
For Buyers agents:
How might you ask? Well, a good agent is in the office for walk-ins and calling people on the phone, following up with buyers that came to an open house. But what if the agent had a Blast 1.0 that transmits around 492 ft in any direction. The message people got when they walked by said to come in and see what we have and ask for me (Name) Of course having a smaller unit with you at all times would really be the ultimate business card. (Yes you can have different messages on each unit.)
Can really use these in clever ways: They can use them in all the same ways that a buyers agent can but they can also use them at each of their listings.The message at the listing can lead to a virtual tour. Or a Virtual Flyer about the property.
Of course, Commercial agents, Property Managers, Leasing agents can use them in the same way.
Do you know any agents that need to know about these units? Or a Broker that would love to have these for their office. It would be a great way for every agent to have one to market their agency and you can put a code in the notification to identify the agent that created the lead for proper distribution. The opportunities are unlimited.
