Is microdosing the future of cannabis?

Dispensaries are selling more low THC products and strains than ever before.

As weed is legalized and becomes more mainstream, cannabis products seem to be getting “weaker” rather than stronger. This trend toward microdosing and low-THC products is, in part, to appeal to a wider audience of new and inexperienced users.

But, it’s also helping veteran stoners stay medicated and productive. We took a look at this trend, from low-THC strains of weed to low-dose edibles, to discover the appeal of microdosing.

What is microdosing and who’s doing it?

Canada: How much marijuana is too much? Legalization means new questions for police

Pop quiz: what does 30 grams of marijuana look like?

It's not an abstract question. Under the federal government's proposed cannabis legalization plan, 30 grams of dried marijuana is the maximum a person can legally possess in a public place. Carry any more and you could be subject to fines, jail time, or both.

Policing quantities is a big shift for police officers, who are used to viewing any amount of pot as a potential red flag, said Sandy Sweet of the Canadian Police Knowledge Network, an agency that provides online training courses for police officers.

"Now it's [going to be] a legal substance. They have to move on. So we have to train every police officer in the country what the law says they're allowed to do and not allowed to do in these new scenarios."

Higher learning: Why student innovation is critical for legal cannabis

College campuses can and should play a major role in preparing the next generation of leaders for the marijuana industry.

Dropbox, Facebook, and Microsoft. These are well-known companies with enough capital to power economies, and yet all were invented by students in a dorm room. Mark Zuckerberg created a $500 billion-dollar company that revolutionized how the world engaged with itself (for better or worse), all while in school.

Oregon marijuana: Lots of data, few to analyze and check it

To the beat of electronic dance music, men and women inside a slate-grey building harvested marijuana plants festooned with radio-frequency identification tags. In another room, an employee entered the tag numbers into a government database.

The cannabis tracking system used by Avitas, a marijuana company with a production facility in Salem, is the backbone of Oregon’s regulatory system to ensure businesses with marijuana licenses obey the rules and don’t divert their product into the black market.

A huge amount of data is entered into the system by Oregon’s 1,800 licensees every day, a reality that means the state has a tremendous amount of information at its fingertips. But the reality also is the state doesn’t have the manpower to monitor all that data.

Marijuana THC breathalyzers: How to invest now in this cannabis technology

Everyone knows that marijuana stocks outperformed in 2017, but few people are aware of this small, explosive niche in the cannabis market: marijuana breathalyzer stocks.

This growing trend is excellent for equities like the two companies we’ll look at below. First, though, we have to consider why there is surging demand for marijuana thc breathalyzers in the first place.

The answer is, of course, public safety.

Pot smokers are notoriously casual about the risks of smoking and driving. A recent survey showed that 40% of marijuana users drove less than two hours after smoking, which is less than half the wait time suggested by U.S. authorities.

New, science-backed app could help measure cannabis levels

A new app designed by scientists lets cannabis users check how high they are.

Researchers developed a prototype called Am I Stoned which helps cannabis users understand how the drug is affecting them through a series of tasks.

The researchers examined the usefulness of computer and iPhone tasks in assessing cannabis-impairment in a controlled laboratory environment. They asked 24 healthy participants, who did not use cannabis daily, to take a pill containing either a placebo or up to 15 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient in cannabis that makes people high.
