Hemp could help sustain vitally important bee populations

Recent studies suggest that newly-legalized hemp may help a critically important species – bees.

Scientists have been warning about the consequences of dwindling bee populations for years as these pollinators are responsible for about 70% of all food crops.

And humans aren’t the only species that depends on the pollination provided by bees – a host of other animals depend on the plants pollinated by these creatures.

Colony collapse disorder (CCD), which affects beehives around the world, results in significant economic losses and is a serious threat to the ecosystem.

Human activity such as the use of pesticides and deforestation is believed to have led to the rapid decline in bee populations.

A surprising thing could close the loop in the green economy and make it more sustainable – its waste.

A rumor has it that no one managed to calculate precisely how much waste the industry is leaving behind.

Some estimates are that there were 1 million tons of green “leftovers” in 2019, in North America alone.

And when we imagine all the packaging, often described as excessive, needed to distribute green goods, the pile seems to raise even more alarming questions.

Buyer beware: ‘Weed washing’ companies said to deliver little to no CBD despite packaging

The CBD industry has a dirty little secret that may leave customers feeling let down by their latest cannabis-infused purchase.

The practice, known as weed-washing, occurs when companies add hemp oil that contains little or no CBD to their products in an attempt to financially benefit from the enormous popularity of the compound found in cannabis.

The new trend appears most common in the beauty industry, according to U.S.-based publication, The Fresh Toast, and risks alienating consumers who do not experience the CBD benefits they were promised.

The Netherlands introduces new medical cannabis varieties for patients

New varieties of medical cannabis will be sold to the Netherlands Government which could see more patients buying their medicine in pharmacies rather than coffee shops.

The new varieties of cannabis will be sold to the government by two producers for €2.35 per gramme instead of the current price of €5.80 per gramme. This will bring the selling price of medicinal cannabis at the pharmacy well below the price of the current recreational price in the coffee shop.

The government has increased the expected (contract) value of medical cannabis production to €140m which possibly implies that patients will buy more at the pharmacy instead of in coffee shops.
