woman

Study results of “The OBX Pain Study on CBD and Rare Cannabinoids” were recently published and showcase evidence of the effectiveness of cannabinoid treatment.

The results of a clinical study were announced on June 15. Conducted by Radicle Science and Open Book Extracts (OBX), the study claims to be one of the largest cannabinoid trials to focus on pain treatment.

The study analyzed 1,629 U.S.-based participants over a four-week period, with the focus of examining “the synergistic impact of rare cannabinoids like Cannabichromene (CBC) and Cannabigerol (CBG) on pain.” Although there are many studies being conducted regularly on the vast topic of medical cannabis, few are conducted as a blind, randomized, controlled clinical trial.

Can cryptocurrency and blockchain tech help the marijuana industry?

The latest innovations in digital finance could greatly help the struggling pot industry, according to the leader of a specialty finance company.

At first glance, the 21st-century businesses of cryptocurrency and legalized marijuana seem incompatible. A closer look reveals a potentially more harmonious picture, however.

That's not only because pot companies, which currently have problems accessing even the most basic services provided by the traditional financial industry, might benefit from the use of assets like Bitcoin (BTC 0.95%) and Ethereum (ETH 0.78%). It's also because blockchain technology holds the promise of  streamlining the operations and accounting of an industry where such efforts can be complex.

The industry’s leading device manufacturer has evolved the playing field again.

From improving pen technology to pioneering e-rigs, even the least engaged concentrate consumer has likely tried at least one of their products already. Not happy with settling for the status quo, Puffco is back again with another innovation to propel the hash game—and this time it’s not even water filtered.

rolled cannabis

Sorting Robotics, an industrial cannabis-focused AI and computer vision technologies company, launched Jiko. Jiko is the cannabis industry’s first automated pre-roll infusion robot.

Approximately 70% of all cannabis manufacturing is still being done by hand, and will result in about $2B manufacturing labor spend in 2022–significantly eating into operators’ bottom-lines. With Jiko’s ability to infuse up to 800 pre-rolls per hour and reduce waste and spillage by approximately 20%-30%, Jiko has been engineered to help operators boost margins, scale, and achieve profitability.
