GLENDALE - Hemp has certainly gained a great deal of attention recently all over the world. Although hemp has a long history, it is only now that it is being rediscovered.

The Hemp Farm Bill was passed by the United States in 2018. A growing number of people are becoming interested in this crop. The advantages of hemp for our health, the environment, and the economy are undeniably compelling. 

HollyweedCBD was established with the assistance of professionals in the CBD industry with the goal of enhancing people's health by taking into consideration the six wellness components, namely spiritual, emotional, intellectual, environmental, physical, and social.


What is Kief and how do you use it?


Kief is the trichome-rich powder you’ll find at the bottom of your grinder. It’s loaded with THC, and is traditionally used as the basis of hashish.

Kief is term that refers to trichomes that have been separated from the cannabis plant. Cannabis kief contains significantly less plant matter than whole cannabis flower, and it is rich in cannabinoids, making it a highly potent cannabis product.

Kief is also commonly referred to as “keef,” “cannabis crystals,” “chief,” or simply “dust” due to its particulate nature. It can be harvested from marijuana leaves, flower, and plants by dry sifting cannabis with a kief box.

Another common way people extract kief is by grinding marijuana with a 3-chamber grinder; the powdery substance beneath the mesh screen is kief.


Greenfern continues Hemp Seed research with grant Assistance

New Zealand’s Greenfern Industries is part of a partnership to have received a grant to research potential high value products derived from hemp seed processing waste.

A major waste stream from processing hemp seed (which is technically a nut) is the hull – the hard outer coating. Another is hemp seed cake or meal, which is the by-product of cold-pressing hemp seeds for oil. While the latter is being used as stock feed in some parts of the world, not much is being done with the former. And there could be other, more valuable uses for hemp seed meal.

Greenfern, Hemp Connect and Callaghan Innovation have been awarded a $110,000 Bioresource Processing Alliance (BPA) grant to support work on a related project that commenced last year.

Phoenix nonproft plans to seek grant from fund created by Marijuana Legalization

State law says justice reinvestment programs can be an effort to address the underlying causes of crime or a push to reduce the prison population.

Right now the nonprofit’s Executive Director Dionne Washington is inviting people to voice their thoughts at listening sessions scheduled for each Thursday in September.

Marijuana Industry moves to become more Sustainable


Cannabis in America is estimated to be worth anywhere $28 billion in 2021 to roughly $197 billion currently as more states and the federal government are expected to legalize marijuana.

However, the cannabis industry is often associated with a negative environmental impact.

Indoor cannabis grows tend to consume a lot of energy because of their heating and cooling needs; cannabis plants require a lot of water, and they often emit aromatic compounds. The cannabis industry has also been criticized for generating a lot of waste, including plastic and paper consumer packaging as well as electronic waste from vapes.

Even so, the sector is still keen on becoming more sustainable.
