From courtrooms to grow rooms, it was a big year for cannabis in Arkansas. Here are some the biggest stories of the year and a few our favorites:

We visited Shake Extractions, a women-owned cannabis processor in Northwest Arkansas. These ladies make some nonpsychoactive CBD products as well as some psychoactive THC products that are sold in Arkansas’s medical marijuana dispensaries. They even make a THC-infused sex lube and we gave it a try

A Pulaski County circuit judge said he plans to rule by the end of the year in a case that argues the state’s restrictions on cannabis advertising are too strict. The judge gave the state cannabis industry a favorable ruling earlier in the year when he struck down 27 legislative changes to the state medical marijuana amendment
