A greener green: Solar power the best option for cannabis sustainability

Most cannabis producers would consider themselves ecologically responsible. They strive for sustainability by embracing organic grow practices whenever they can. They take pride in supplying a natural product that comes directly from the earth.

Vancouver chefs craft cannabis-infused dining experiences

When it comes to weed, munchies have always been a part of the consumption experience. If a few drags of a joint or a bong rip is considered the first course, a bag of chips is the entree, followed by an entire pint of ice cream for dessert—or some such variation on treats.

For chefs, however, the appetite-stimulating substance is a doorway into a new culinary art. And Canada is finally in the game.

“It’s been an absolute whirlwind. I could have never predicted the response,” chef Travis Petersen tells the Georgia Straight, reflecting on a weed-infused-dining series he started on 4/20 last year.

How the government's single licensed cannabis supplier is sabotaging research

With marijuana illegal under federal law, the red tape and bureaucratic hurdles facing American scientists who aim to study cannabis render the task nearly impossible, writes Madison Margolin. Some, however, like Dr. Sue Sisley from Scottsdale, Arizona, have persevered nonetheless, coming as far as to — almost — reschedule cannabis flower as a prescription medication for patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In partnership with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), Sisley has secured the FDA's blessing to pursue clinical research on veteran PTSD patients, who smoke cannabis to mitigate their symptoms.

In battle of hoop houses, cannabis wins

To the extent the battle over hoop houses is, in reality, a showdown between wine growers and a new wave of outdoor cannabis growers just now discovering the sublime virtues of the Santa Ynez Valley, Sara Rotman should be regarded as a warrior queen for Santa Barbara’s newest yet oldest industry ​— ​marijuana. In previous incarnations, Rotman had successfully invented herself as an icon of iconhood, a one-woman hi-glam fashionista branding machine.

Her company ​— ​My Own Damn Company (MODCo) ​— ​had offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Buenos Aires.
