Home Renovation Project: Hemp-based Render improves Insulation

A material made by mixing hemp with lime and water forms a new layer of insulation around this house in Belgium, as part of a renovation by Ghent studio Martens Van Caimere Architecten.

Known as hempcrete, the hemp-based render was applied in thick layers to all four walls of the small house to help it retain heat and make the structure more weather-resistant. The result is a textured surface with a similar appearance to rammed earth.

According to architect Nikolaas Martens, one of the two co-founders of Martens Van Caimere Architecten, the material offers a similar but more sustainable and economical solution than concrete.

Oregon company hopes marijuana canning technology takes off

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

As the cannabis industry grows, competition for customers is fierce.

An Ashland-based company says their technology can help set products apart.

N2 Packaging LLC seals and preserves marijuana in cans using nitrogen, claiming the product has a longer shelf life.

“They know it's going to be good for as long as they keep it in their dresser, or the cabinet or wherever. It's not going to go stale or dry on them,” said Luke Olsen, the company’s retail sales manager.

Olsen and a partner have their own product line called The Factory.

N2 Packaging received a patent to hermetically seal controlled substances in an altered environment last October.

Love hormone is a bit like cannabis, scientists say

Love has often been described as a drug – but that’s now been backed up by science.

A brain chemical known as the “love hormone” makes people more sociable by mimicking the effects of cannabis, scientists have said.

Oxytocin is known to enhance bonding between lovers and between mothers and their babies, and also to boost the pleasure of social contact.

The new research, conducted on mice, found that higher levels of the hormone in the brain led to the release of anandamide – an “endocannabinoid” similar to the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
