HEMP HITS NEW HIGHS

In a small town about an hour north of Denver sits a nondescript warehouse where, decades ago, workers canned beans and tomatoes on an assembly line. Today, the chemists inside have much loftier ambitions. They’re aiming at a cheap, fast and sustainable way to make the stuff that makes our world, from sugars to fibers to plastics. A half-ton of their magical new cash crop, strawlike but infinitely sturdier, is stacked in bales covered with blue tarp.

Science and Cannabis, finally together!

The principles of science apply everywhere — on an airplane and in a submarine, on Mars and on Venus, to bugs and plants. What makes an oak grow? Why does a lilac smell sweet?

At the Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative (CGRI), we too study a plant, just like other scientists have studied wheat, sunflowers, tobacco, and thousands more. It’s just that our subject has been taboo for decades, and therefore un-studied. We know very, very little about Cannabis. Now, legalization is opening up research opportunities for those of us who are scientists living in Colorado.

Do Your Cannabis Plants Need UV Light?

By Kelly Hansen and Gretchen Heber, Illumitex

Growers looking to increase potency of cannabis plants may consider adding ultraviolet light to their growing environment.

Is this a smart move?

It’s well-established that UV light in all forms can damage plant tissues. UVB rays specifically damage proteins and nucleic acids in the cells, which harms cell reproduction and plant metabolism.

Cannabis plants respond to this stress by increasing production of trichomes (which biosynthesize cannabinoids). Trichomes help the plant reflect light in an effort to protect the plant’s flowers from damaging UV light.

3 Things Everyone Should Know About Trichomes

Trichomes are small appendages that look like hairs. They are produced by marijuana, and other plants. Female marijuana plants produce certain trichomes that are a rich source of THC. These trichomes can be found in their largest concentration on the buds. They start out clear, turn a milky color, then turn amber (light brown).

The trichomes in picture 1 are clear. After the plant has flowered for a few weeks, the trichomes start to turn a milky color (picture 2). After a few more weeks, they will be totally milky in color. In the later stages of flowering, trichomes will turn to a light brown color (picture 3). The amount of time required to get to this point depends on the marijuana strain and the growing conditions.

Police Are Trying To Use Honeybees To Detect Illegal Drugs

With drug laws changing all the time, it’s hard for police sniffer dogs to keep up with what they’re supposed to find and what they aren’t. That’s why police forces are turning to insects to sniff out narcotics.

An odd scientific paper in PLoS One today details the very first attempts to get insects to become drug sniffers. The researchers tested three insects — the grapevine moth, the hissing cockroach and the western honeybee — just to assess how well they could differentiate the smell of one substance from another. The bees won, because their antennae make great “biosensors”, the researchers report.
