Researchers Earn USDA Grant to Study Hemp in Cattle Feed

Researchers at Kansas State University have recently earned a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to study hemp in cattle feed.

The $200,000 Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant from the USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture will help the researchers determine the concentrations of cannabinoids in livestock after exposure to industrial hemp.

While hemp is federally legal, it needs approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA-CVM) as well as the Association of American Feed Control.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay In Your System? It's Kind Of Complicated

There’s only one reason anyone would really care how long pot remains in the body (unless they’re a researcher or they’re writing an article like this one).

There's a Smart New Way to Invest in Cannabis Stocks

Over the next decade, marijuana is on track to be one of the fastest growing industries. Although estimates vary wildly, worldwide sales could tally anywhere from $50 billion to $200 billion by the time 2030 rolls around. For context, global weed sales tallied just shy of $11 billion in 2018. It's this rapid growth of an already popular industry that has investors piling into pot stocks.

However, the cannabis industry isn't immune to that which plagues all next-big-thing investments. I'm talking about growing pains. To our north, regulatory issues have constrained supply and created huge bottlenecks. Meanwhile, in the U.S., high tax rates on legal product have made it difficult for licensed producers to compete with black-market growers on price.

How Concerned Should Countries Be About Vape Pen Cartridges?

It wasn’t that long ago that there was a spike in health issues reported in multiple countries, with the culprit causing the issues reportedly being cannabis vape pen cartridges.

CBD And THC Oils: How Much Is Actually Getting Absorbed?

When ingested in oil form, one of the most popular consumption methods, the effectiveness of CBD and THC becomes compromised.

A product can claim to contain large amounts of THC or CBD and that it will provide powerful benefits. But while this may be true, it doesn’t explain the complex process of how cannabis ends up absorbed through the bloodstream, which is known as bioavailability. When it comes to CBD and THC oils, the amount of that ends up absorbed in your blood is usually very little.
