DEA is allowing more research of cannabis, but some silly roadblocks remain

t's not particularly easy to study cannabis in the United States, but one of the greatest impediments to that research is being removed.

Last month the Drug Enforcement Administration announced that it had reached an important point in the process of increasing the amount of cannabis available for scientific research. The DEA issued a "memorandum of agreement" to multiple growers, essentially stating that these growers are in compliance with federal laws and regulations concerning the production of cannabis for research. Formalities are all that remain before these producers can start growing.

Americans Are Consuming More Cannabis Than Plant-Based Meat, Says New Brightfield Report

The cannabis industry’s proof was in 2020’s revenue, but Brightfield’s newest report shows consumer behavior to match exactly what the cannabis industry already knew: people consumed more cannabis during the pandemic than they were before. 

Gen Z makes up a large part of new consumers

A clear factor is stress and anxiety, and the Brightfield report confirms that. New recreational cannabis consumers made up 6% of all consumers in 2020, with 22% being Gen Z. If you thought Generation Z wasn’t old enough to consume cannabis, so did we (kidding), but many of them are now 21 which means legal access to cannabis if they live somewhere where it’s legal.

Delta-8-THC: Is It Really That Different From Delta-9?

So you’ve finished work, and you’re really, really thirsty.
You walk into a nearby bar and ask if they have any imported beer.
“Sure,” the bartender says. “We have Heineken and Dos Equis.”
A Heineken sounds like it would really hit the spot. “Great,” you say. “Let me have a Heineken.”

The bartender disappears for a minute, plops a glass on the bar, and pours your beer from an open green bottle.  You take a long, deep swig, and…….wait!

“That’s not Heineken,” you say.
“Sure it is!” says the bartender. “It’s brand new! Heineken 0.0…alcohol-free!”
“Arrrrrgh,” you say.

There’s nothing wrong with alcohol-free beer. In fact, it can be the right choice if you have to drive home. But it’s best to know in advance what you’re getting.

The study, done with the support of the National Institute of Justice, involved 20 participants. They were asked to consume cannabis through edibles or vapes, all with different degrees of THC. Afterward, participants were tested with common field sobriety tests and asked to complete cognitive tasks.

NFL pledges US$1M to fund cannabis research for pain relief

The NFL says it plans to fund research into alternative pain medications to opioids, including potential studies on whether cannabis can effectively treat pain without having a negative effect on elite athletes.

The league is offering US$1 million in grants for as many as five research proposals, Jeff Miller, executive vice president overseeing player health and safety, said on a media call Tuesday.

“This isn’t an NFL or a sports issue; this is a societal issue,” the NFL’s chief medical officer, Allen Sills, said on the call, saying there need to be more alternatives to opioids to manage pain. The NFL is particularly interested in research proposals covering cannabis and CBD, as players have shown an interest in using them to manage pain.
