FACING CANNABIS’S PESTICIDE PROBLEM

One such cultivator was LivWell (forced to put 60,000 plants on hold). The hold order has since been released, says John Lord, LivWell owner, and the company has been working hand-in-hand with the Denver Department of Environmental Health to clear up confusion and help design an industry standard testing regime to ensure safe cannabis products. “Testing of our finished product by an independent, state-licensed lab approved by the City of Denver showed that our products are safe—as we have always maintained,” says Lord. “We are proud to be able to meaningfully contribute to the standards that will ensure public health and safety moving forward.”

Magic Flight is revolutionising the weed equipment market with wooden products made with love

Hand-made vaporizers serve as 'functional pieces of art'

Just a few years ago, if you wanted to buy some equipment for smoking weed, you were refined to a market stall or dingy head shop selling poorly-made products shipped in from Asia. You know the sort - neon plastic grinders with Bob Marley's face on, lumpy bongs in the shape of goblins, t-shirts emblazoned with alien faces saying 'take me to your dealer'.

Fortunately, as the use of cannabis slowly becomes destigmatised and various levels of legalisation or decriminalisation sweep the globe, those days are gone, and the market for quality paraphernalia is booming.

First large-scale hemp processing plant begins in Colorado

A Fort Lupton plant is starting to test and process Colorado's hemp harvest, turning it into pulp that can be used to make paper, sugar -- even biofuels.

It's nickname may be "ditch weed," but the PureVision Technology processing plant in Ft. Lupton is turning Colorado's newest cash crop into something much more valuable.

The hemp plant is cannabis without the psychoactive properties and growing hemp became legal in Colorado last year, along with the recreational marijuana vote

"I would say it grows like a weed. You throw it in the ground and watch it grow," said Dani Billings, who started growing hemp last year, and was amazed at the low-water usage and high yield.
