Leaf Allows Home Growers to Grow Cannabis Without the Guesswork

Leaf is an automated device for cultivating weed that keeps an eye on the water levels, humidity, and air temperature of your crop

Back in the day, home growers of marijuana had to learn about horticulture, build greenhouses or rig sunlamps, experiment with fertilizers and feeding charts and soil acidity—all while keeping the crop hidden from prying eyes. As many areas change the laws restricting use of cannabis—a topic further discussed in our Sex, Drugs and Alcohol Debrief—however, home growers are demanding modern equipment to help them, and that’s where Leaf by Corsica Innovations comes in.

The Pot Scientist Explains All, Via YouTube

Trained scientist Carter Baird has created a quirky online persona, with the mission of educating the public about cannabis and the legal marijuana industry.

~

Carter Baird seems genuinely surprised at some of the questions he has fielded in his short tenure as The Pot Scientist. While wandering around Denver’s 16th Street pedestrian mall in a lab coat, Baird coaxes both Colorado residents and tourists alike to come up with any queries they might have about cannabis.

And a lot of those questions, he tells WeedWorthy, have to do with popular misconceptions; such as whether marijuana consumption can make men sterile.

Weakness in This Cannabis Social Network Creates Opportunity

Over the last week, the market has seen MassRoots, Inc. (MSRT) fall 17% and this weakness has created a great opportunity for investors. The market significantly undervalues MSRT's underlying intellectual property, which the company continues to enhance and develop through strategic partnerships.

When investing in cannabis stocks, investors need to be cautious. Many of these companies offer a product which can be easily replicated by another business. This is not the case for MSRT. The company not only has a first move advantage, but its technology is protected by patents and would be very difficult to replicate.

Using ‘marijuana goggles’ to fight teen drug problem

HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — Hancock County now has a new way to fight teen drug use. It’s a problem officials say is growing rapidly.

24-Hour News 8 got a first look at the new “marijuana googles” at a Youth Council meeting. The Hancock County Youth Council is a group of teens from four different high schools, that works to keep other young people from drinking alcohol or doing drugs.

“It’s a huge problem in our community, underage drinking and use of substances. A lot of friends and teammates I’ve had have gotten caught and I just think it would make our community a better place if we eliminated it,” said Blair Viehweg, a Mount Vernon senior.

Say Hello to Medical Marijuana's Biggest Threat

Although the jury is still out on the benefit and safety profile of medical marijuana, the American public, according to national polls, has practically anointed it a wonder drug.

Medical marijuana finds its legs

It's not hard to understand why consumers -- especially those with potentially chronic or terminal diseases or disorders -- are excited about the idea of expanding marijuana's use for medical purposes. There are a number of clinical studies that have shown some level of positive correlation involving marijuana (or cannabinoids from the cannabis plant) in treating or alleviating symptoms of a patient's disease or disorder.

THC: Newly risen from yeast

In August, researchers announced they had genetically engineered yeast to produce the powerful painkiller hydrocodone. Now comes the perhaps inevitable sequel: Scientists have created yeasts that can make important constituents of marijuana, including the main psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

Synthetic versions of THC are available in pill form under brand names like Marinol and Cesamet; they are generally used to treat nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite caused by HIV infection or cancer chemotherapy.

Genetically modified yeast could make THC in a cheaper and more streamlined way than traditional chemical synthesis.

The 2015 Cannabis World Congress Was So Square It Was Accidentally an Anti-Drug PSA

Nothing is more suspect than a man in a suit talking about drugs. Unless he's your attorney, he's inevitably police. And even if he's not literal law enforcement, he'd flip in an instant if you got caught with a brick of cocaine, weed, or insider information about Sour Diesel futures.
