First Ohio medical marijuana sales expected next week – if all goes according to plan

 

Ohio's first medical marijuana sales could happen at the end of next week – provided everything happens as planned.

Medical marijuana has been grown and harvested, and one dispensary is ready to open its doors. But all marijuana flower and products must be tested for potency and contaminants by an independent lab before they can be sold. 

Two testing labs have received final certificates of operation from the state. Both were collecting samples from some of the 29 state-licensed marijuana cultivators on Wednesday.

Hocking Technical College's testing lab received its certificate of operation Tuesday. Lab director Jonathan Cachat said the lab could have results back to cultivators by mid-week next week.

Hemp legalization could mean big business for Montana

Hemp is poised to grow into a major industry in Montana.

After President Donald Trump's signature decriminalized hemp cultivation Thursday, Montana is looking at what could be a big market — from pharmaceuticals to animal feed — said Ben Thomas of the Montana Department of Agriculture.

“This removed a lot of the restrictions around the market,” Thomas said.

Until now, hemp cultivation was limited mainly to research and pilot programs.

Cannabis will take China tech's path to propriety

America’s cannabis growers will follow an unusual path to propriety. The subversive industry is feared by the establishment, with investors reliant on legal loopholes. Yet these companies are starting out much like China’s tech giants did. In the same fashion, as they create jobs and wealth, appetite for reining them in will wane.

Oregon again sees huge marijuana harvest

 For the second year in a row, Oregon cannabis farmers have harvested more than a million pounds of usable marijuana.

The huge harvest (more than 453,592 kilograms) is again driving down prices for consumers and putting pressure on growers who aren't getting the price they hoped for after a similar phenomenon in 2017, The Bulletin reported Thursday.

Oregon's cannabis market is limited to sales within the state's borders, yet the state of about 4 million people has 1,107 licensed active producers and another 900 producers seeking licenses from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

Where ordering cannabis is easy as booking a taxi

Ordering cannabis in Los Angeles is now as easy as booking a taxi.

Click on an app, choose your preferred product, pay for it and then sit back and wait for it to be delivered to your door.

Eaze is just one of several firms taking advantage of the legalisation of cannabis, for which the people of California voted overwhelmingly in favour in 2016.

Since January last year, when the use of recreational cannabis became legal across the state, the start-up has seen an 80% increase in sign-ups.

It had run a limited medicinal cannabis delivery service for two decades, with anyone who wanted to order having to download medical evidence that they needed it.

Recreationally legal in 10 states and medically available in 33 (plus the District of Columbia), cannabis products are in demand more than ever. Policy changes have resulted in headaches for business owners and farmers, but the slow erosion of barriers preventing consumers from purchasing cannabis has allowed the industry to boom and new technologies to emerge.

Putting THC testing in Oregon to the test

In Oregon, cannabis test scores are big part of every recreational purchase, and both wholesale and retail prices are affected by the results. The higher the percentage of THC, the higher the price and, hopefully, the higher the consumer. But what if I told you that the THC-content analysis results of the flower you’re currently smoking could vary over 10 percent from lab to lab? This would mean that all those test scores are virtually meaningless. You may be paying twice as much as you should, or you might just be getting the deal of a lifetime. So just how reliable are lab results for cannabis products? That’s what we wanted to find out.

Medical marijuana could provide financial boost for LSU and Southern University systems

Advocates for medical marijuana hope new remedies will give relief to thousands of Louisiana residents. LSU and Southern University, the state’s approved producers, also hope to generate extra revenue.

Under the enabling legislation, the agricultural research arms of the LSU and Southern systems are the medical marijuana program’s designated licensees. LSU is the first land-grant university in the nation to do medical marijuana research, said Hampton Grunewald, the LSU AgCenter’s associate vice president for government affairs.
