Unicorn Breathing Mask's Mission Statement

“For when we rise, we bring everyone with us.” – Kimberly Sky, Founder Unicorn Breathing Mask

Global Green Business Award-Winning California-based Reusable Mask Company Continues to Break Glass Ceilings

This will have a substantial environmental impact with a warning that repeated exposure could be hazardous as the substances found have known links to cell death, genotoxicity and cancer formation.”

— Research conducted in May 2021 by UK’s Swansea University

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the holidays bring cold winter weather and indoor gatherings, many are reconsidering their mask options. Public awareness around face mask fit/leakage has many turning to N95 or KN95 disposables as recommended by public health professionals. However as more data is being accumulated regarding the long-term impacts of disposable mask-wearing, concerns over risks of environmental pollution and human health are now top of mind. Research conducted in May 2021 by the United Kingdom’s Swansea University as supported by the Institute for Innovative Materials Processing and Numerical Technologies (IMPACT) and the SPECIFIC Innovation and Knowledge Center, have uncovered high levels of heavy metal pollutants, including lead, antimony, and copper, within the silicon-based and plastic fibers of common disposable face masks.

The continual reliance on single-use plastic masks, with approximately 200 million a day being produced in China alone, and the associated waste from the chemical pollutants discovered within them has been documented as a new cause of alarming levels of global environmental pollution. The study aimed to explore the direct link of concerning mask pollution, with the level of toxic substances uncovered in common disposable masks. Outlined in their extensive peer-reviewed study, Swansea University scientists wrote: The findings reveal significant levels of chemical pollutants in all the variety of available disposable masks tested — with micro/nanoparticles and heavy metals released into the water during all tests. This will have a substantial environmental impact and, in addition, raise the question of the potential damage to public health, with a warning that repeated exposure could be hazardous as the substances found have known links to cell death, genotoxicity and cancer formation.

The research team included Professor Trystan Watson, Dr. Javier Delgado Gallardo and Dr. Geraint Sullivan. Project lead Dr. Sarper Sarp of Swansea University College of Engineering said after completing the study in May 2021: “There is a need to understand the impact of such particle leaching on public health. One of the main concerns with these particles is that they were easily detached from face masks and leached into the water with no agitation, which suggests that these particles are mechanically unstable and readily available to be detached. Therefore, a full investigation is necessary to determine the quantities and potential impacts of these particles leaching into the environment, and the levels being inhaled by users during normal breathing. This is a significant concern, especially for health care professionals, key workers, and children required to wear masks for large proportions of the working or school day.”

In their continual commitment to providing a healthy, non-toxic solution California-based women-owned Unicorn Breathing Mask has introduced a new ASTM F3502 Level 2/Level 2 Sustainable Disposable Mask, as well as continuing to provide their CDC-approved Organic, Reusable ASTM F3502 mask that doesn’t involve the use of toxic heavy metals found in current disposable masks. Unicorn’s disposable mask features incredibly high breathability (2.1 mm h20) coupled with Level 2 High-Performance particle efficiency and features natural New Zealand wool fiber technology. Alternatively, their stylish high-thread count Organic Cotton Reusable face mask utilizes safe and non-toxic 15+ mile continuous electrospun nanofiber disposable filters, thousands of times thinner than a human hair, capable of capturing particles as small as 0.1 microns with 99% efficiency while maintaining a low 5.9mm breathability. Unicorn Breathing Mask Founder Kimberly Sky states, “Our reusable nanotechnology filtered mask, and new sustainable disposable mask, are manufactured by a health-conscious company out of New Zealand that is committed to maintaining a low carbon footprint using safe materials. The Unicorn mask tests down to a much smaller particle size with greater efficiency ratings than nanotextiles and features dramatically higher breathability, greater thermal comfort (far less moisture buildup), and is much more lightweight (less than 1mm thick). We encourage you to do your research with all filtered mask companies and note the differences in verified USA lab-tested results. You and your family deserve to breathe pure!”

ASTM medical masks that are tested to the F2100 standard can often be confused with ASTM F3502 face masks. The ASTM F2100 standard tests the filter material only as opposed to the whole mask, and therefore doesn’t account for how well the mask filters when actually worn on your face, using different-sized particles to measure filtration efficiency than the F3502 test. The velocity, distance, speed and polarity of the particles are all different, resulting in a less rigorous challenge. The ASTM F2100 specification offers up this caveat clearly, saying it “only evaluates the materials used in the construction of the medical face mask, and not the seal.” In one case, a popular Level 3 mask that surpassed 90% on a materials-only basis, filtered only 11% of particulate matter when worn by an actual human being. N95s that must be properly fitted to the individual wearer and discarded daily in order to maintain stated efficiency levels have also undergone several peer-reviewed studies demonstrating concern for their rigidity. Even the smallest of gaps caused by the rigid material not sealing properly to the face have been shown to cause them to lose a disproportionate amount of filtration compared to more flexible reusable filter masks. There is also a concern for N95s lack of breathability (airflow resistance limit for inhalation is 35mm, more than double the maximum breathability resistance allowed under the F3502 standard), particularly among young people and seniors, or those with breathing difficulties or chemical sensitivities.

Sky continues, “There are non-toxic long-term sustainable solutions for disposable and reusable face-mask wearing as climate change continues to worsen, causing ongoing respiratory illness. It is time to listen to the research and shift to a safer solution.”

Adult legal weed dispensary opening Thursday will be 21st location in New Jersey

[ad_1]

Ascend Fort Lee will be open for recreational weed order pick-ups on Thursday, NJ Advance Media has been told exclusively by the multi-state operator that owns the dispensary.

This dispensary received its site approval from the Fort Lee Planning Board late Monday, the last step the firm needed to begin adult weed sales and become the 21st store in New Jersey to offer recreational adult weed.

Consumers can order online at letsascend.com starting Wednesday, Nov. 16, and can pick up on appointment-only basis at the Fort Lee store beginning this Thursday, said Caitlin Fleishman, Vice president of Public Affairs for Ascend.

Ascend had already received state approvals from the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission months ago to expand to adult weed sales at the 461 West Street location. The dispensary, located in a former Staples store, began selling medical marijuana on Aug. 12.

After Thursday’s soft launch, an official grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19. Currently, the store will only offer on-line pick ups, but Fleishman said the dispensary could eventually open to the public for walk-in traffic.

Ascend Fort Lee will be the company’s flagship location in New Jersey and its third dispensary to open. The company also has stores in Rochelle Park and Montclair.

Medical marijuana patients will continue to get priority treatment as mandated by the CRC with a dedicated medical express lane, direct access to the front entrance, private consultation rooms, designated parking spots and medical cannabis shopping hours, said Fleishman.

Exclusive hours for medical patients will be: Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Mondays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Located in densely populated Bergen County, Ascend Fort Lee, will be the closest dispensary to New York City.

“Ascend Fort Lee is a uniquely positioned flagship location, only a 9-iron away from the George Washington Bridge, which will greet existing medical patients and incoming recreational consumers with exceptional product and service,” said Frank Perullo, interim co-CEO, president, and co-founder of Ascend Wellness Holdings.

Perullo was equally optimistic during last week’s company earnings call.

“The team has been preparing and gearing up for the highly anticipated start of adult-use operations at New Jersey’s closest dispensary to New York City,” Perullo said during the call on Thursday.

Fort Lee’s proximity to the New York border is significant as the Empire State is still on track to open the first of its recreational marijuana dispensaries by the end of the year, barring any additional delays. New York is expected to compete with New Jersey for adult weed buyers in the northernmost counties, like Bergen.

Adult recreational weed sales in New Jersey generated $79.7 million in total sales between April 21 and the end of the fiscal year on June 30, according to the state Cannabis Regulatory Commission. The state’s cut was $4.65 million in tax revenue.

On Monday the CRC announced it was hosting a second round of three virtual meetings to listen to public suggestions on how funds raised from fees and fines of legalized adult weed should be used for social equity projects as stated in the new cannabis law. The first of three Social Equity Excise Fee (SEEF) hearings was held Tuesday, Nov. 15, for South Jersey. The hearing for Central Jersey is on Wednesday, Nov. 16, and for North Jersey on Thursday, Nov. 17, both starting at 7 p.m. Similar regional hearings were held in the spring.

“New Jersey has always been incentivized (from a tax perspective) to maximize the amount of time that its adult-use program is operational prior to the launch of the New York market,” said cannabis attorney Robert DiPisa of Hackensack-based Cole Schotz.

“What I think will play into New Jersey’s favor is the fact that New York has already experienced some hurdles with the launch of its program,” including funding for its social equity cannabis investment fund and litigation matters, said DiPisa.

So far, 20 locations have sprung up throughout New Jersey that are all owned and operated by Multi-State Operators, including Ascend. The most recent store to open was Curaleaf Bordentown on Nov. 1.

The Other Side Dispensary Is ‘Turning a Dream Into Reality’ in New Jersey’s Adult-Use Cannabis Market: The Starting Line

[ad_1]

Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez, the first Black, Latinx, female, LGBTQ and disabled veteran cannabis operator in New Jersey, says “it’s been quite a journey” to launch her retail business, The Other Side Dispensary, in the state’s adult-use market.

And she hasn’t even broken ground on the dispensary yet.

Jersey City’s Cannabis Control Board (CCB) approved Brevard-Rodriguez’s application to open her storefront in the Heights section of Jersey City last month, advancing her mission to expand her existing wellness brand, SW3AT, to include cannabis.

Brevard-Rodriguez and her business partner—who owns a 25% stake in the company—bifurcated their application with the city to also apply for a consumption lounge license in what will be a two-story space when the facility is built out. The city is currently awaiting consumption lounge rules from the state before it drafts an ordinance to regulate the businesses within its jurisdiction, but Brevard-Rodriguez is optimistic that the dispensary and consumption lounge will open together in early 2023.

Brevard-Rodriguez served 10 years as a military police officer before founding The Other Side Dispensary.

Brevard-Rodriguez, who did not qualify for official social equity status in New Jersey due to income requirements, initially planned to open her business in Hoboken—her wife’s hometown—but zoning restrictions ultimately sent them elsewhere.

“We had a location locked in, and then they came back, and they sent me a letter saying that I was too close to another dispensary,” Brevard-Rodriguez says. “I don’t know how they were measuring that. Was it door-to-door? Street-to-street? I could’ve probably fought it and won, but I was like, ‘You know what? It’s not worth it. I’m going to go to a space that’s maybe a little bit more welcoming,’ and everything aligned as it was supposed to, at least in my eyes.”

Jersey City, Brevard-Rodriguez’s hometown, approved her application in late July, and she is currently awaiting state approval.

“I don’t think we’re going to have any issues there,” she says. “After we’ve completed that, the next thing is lining up some investors and turning a dream into reality, just breaking ground on our space and putting the vision together.”

Brevard-Rodriguez served 10 years as a military police officer and recently transitioned out of the military as a disabled veteran. She has a background in security and policy and wrote her application with her partner without the help of outside consultants.

“Between my experience with writing as a technical writer and also my security experience, and [my partner’s] cannabis experience, it fused together so well and we were really able to put out a good product,” she says.

Having already launched the SW3AT brand, Brevard-Rodriguez has experience owning a business and has long advocated for alternative health care.

“I wanted to grow my brand to include cannabis,” she says. “That’s what landed me here. The big goal is to completely retire ‘the other side’ of my life and really embrace this new chapter, solely focusing on entrepreneurship and being fully immersed into the wellness industry.”

The SW3AT wellness brand was born from Brevard-Rodriquez feeling unsatisfied with gender-specific spas and gyms.

“They were either super grunge gyms that were clearly targeting males, and then there were super girly spas that were definitely for women,” she says. “I wanted to make a space that was gender fluid [and] inclusive, and that’s kind of what we folded over to The Other Side.”

The big goal is to completely retire ‘the other side’ of my life and really embrace this new chapter, solely focusing on entrepreneurship and being fully immersed into the wellness industry.” – Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez, Owner, The Other Side Dispensary

The SW3AT facility features a sauna and salt therapy, among other holistic wellness offerings, and Brevard-Rodriguez hopes to build on the existing SW3AT branding in her dispensary.

“Our facility is going to be bright and green and airy with a luxurious-type feel, and I want people to know that people consume every day in some kind of fashion, and they’re super functional and productive,” she says. “I just want our facility to dispel these misconceptions that weed is this seedy and scary … industry, and I think that our branding is really going to set us apart.”

Brevard-Rodriguez says she is most excited for the buildout of the dispensary and breathing life into her vision.

She is also looking forward to opening day when the Jersey City community turns out to experience The Other Side.

“I’m just excited for when this actually does all come together and we see the people who are lining up to get into the space,” she says. “Those are my two most exciting things. One, breaking ground and seeing a canvas. It’s a vanilla box and you make it into this thing that you just dreamt of. And then opening day, when you see all the people in the community come out and support. I know those two moments are going to be just so memorable for me.”

In the longer term, Brevard-Rodriguez wants to grow her business in a sensible way. She says she’s been taking note of how other, larger companies have navigated the industry to learn from their mistakes. And, no matter what, she says she wants her team to always stick to the values of the company.

“The achievement of being the first of all these boxes—Black, Latinx, female, LGBTQ, disabled, veteran, all of these things—it’s nice, but it’s also kind of insulting, to be completely honest,” she says. “Just the fact that we’re still highlighting the first in this country is mind boggling. … So, for me, when I look at that, I’m like, ‘All right, cool, I get to be the first in Jersey, and I love Jersey, and I’m glad I can be that for the state,’ but when are we going to get in a place of advancement that we’re no longer the first, that it’s just normalized that women are leaders, veterans are leaders, brown people are leaders? I’m waiting for the day that that’s the case.”

Lawsuit to Prevent Story Dispensary From Opening in New Jersey Dismissed

[ad_1]

Correction: Tahir Johnson is no longer the Director
of Social Equity and Inclusion at USCC. Read the details below.

The Association for Cannabis Health Equity and Medicine (ACHEM) is no longer aligned with the US Cannabis Council (USCC), a leading voice for ending the federal prohibition of cannabis.

In an open letter to USCC president and CEO Steven Hawkins on Aug. 17, ACHEM president Ogadinma Obie, M.D., informed USCC leadership that her association is resigning from its position on the USCC board of directors and general membership, effective immediately.

ACHEM is a professional medical association with the Cannabis Health Equity Movement (CHEM). The mutual benefit nonprofit organization serves the needs of health and medical professionals in the advancement of health equity.

The association joined USCC as a founding member of its executive council in early 2021 and was encouraged by the organization’s commitment to make social equity a central focus in driving federal cannabis policy reform, Obie wrote in the open letter.

In USCC’s about statement, the organization claims to have become a leading force for “creating an equitable values-driven cannabis industry.”

Since joining USCC, Obie wrote that ACHEM’s leadership has “recognized the increasing influence of corporate cannabis priorities over the council that has continually overshadowed or siloed equity-focused recommendations.”

USCC’s membership does include some of the world’s largest cannabis operators and related companies in the industry, such as Curaleaf, Canopy Growth, Cronos Group, Cresco Labs, Columbia Care, Aurora Cannabis, Akerna, Ascend Wellness and others.

Obie added that USCC’s focus on short-term corporate and institution interests has hindered its ability to advance comprehensive and equitable cannabis policy reform.

“We are afraid the organization has strayed from its founding principles,” she wrote. “ACHEM cannot in good conscience maintain our membership in USCC when its current positions no longer align with efforts to make cannabis legalization first and foremost inclusive and equitable so that everyone in the United States, particularly those most harmed by cannabis prohibition, can holistically benefit from the nascent industry.”

According to a statement provided to Cannabis Business Times from USCC, the organization’s leaders are thankful for ACHEM’s contributions but were disappointed to learn that it rescinded its membership.

“We are a big-tent coalition, and our members hold a range of views,” according to the statement. “But we are all steadfastly committed to ending cannabis prohibition, expunging cannabis charges and creating an equitable and values-driven cannabis industry. We take a pragmatic approach to achieving reform and prioritize results. In our view, incremental victories—such as cannabis banking reform—are vital stepping stones to the ultimate goal, not distractions from it.”

While USCC
has taken on lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C., to advance federal cannabis
reform legislation, such as the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act and the
Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act (CAOA), the organization also
launched a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) task force in December 2021. USCC also began operating a new DEI Internship Program in partnership with
the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF).

RELATED: U.S. Cannabis Council
Launches Internship Program to Advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the
Industry

At the time of the DEI task force launch, Tahir Johnson was USCC’s
director of social equity and inclusion, a position he held with the coalition
for more than a year. Johnson told CBT in December 2021 that the organization’s
mission “is to make sure it’s a diverse and inclusive industry that’s
prosperous for everyone, not only in equity and license ownership, but also in
making sure that the cannabis industry itself is diverse.”

But Johnson
departed from USCC in June 2022, according to his LinkedIn
profile
.

At the time
this article was published in mid-August, USCC did not have a social equity and
inclusion director listed on its website.

Johnson continues to serve as the director of
social equity and inclusion at Marijuana Policy Project and is now working toward
opening the first Black-owned dispensary in New Jersey as the CEO of Simply
Pure’s Trenton location.

But the
USCC has been without Johnson for the past two months.

When the USCC submitted feedback to
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer last year during the open comment period
for CAOA, Hawkins recommended three “critical” changes needed in the federal
legalization bill in order to provide “opportunities to all.”

In that feedback, Hawkins stated: “Before significantly changing the regulatory landscape, new rules should recognize state programs, account for current legal obstacles and include a sufficient transition period after de-scheduling to ensure that regulators and businesses of all sizes—particularly emerging and social equity businesses—have the necessary time to adapt ahead of the onset of a national marketplace.”

In this week’s letter from ACHEM to USCC, Obie wrote that her association provided valuable contributions to federal policy position papers, including USCC’s response to CAOA sponsors Schumer and Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Ron Wyden, D-Or., offering meaningful direction to health-, medical- and patient equity issues.

While ACHEM appreciates its time as a member with USCC, Obie wrote, “we have not seen the level of attention or positive change surrounding equity and proper medical policy that we expected from the organization’s initiatives and lobbying.” 

Obie added that ACHEM will continue to fight internally for health equity in the cannabis industry.

“In the future, we hope that USCC will fully embrace the guiding principles that made it so promising when we joined,” she wrote. “The industry needs leadership committed to righting the wrongs of the past to build a healthy and prosperous community for everyone, not just the privileged and powerful.”

In USCC’s response statement, leaders said, “USCC was created to bridge divides and unite the cannabis industry and reform movement to speak with one voice to end federal cannabis prohibition. That remains our mission, and our doors are open to all who share that goal.”
