Contaminated & Mislabeled: How Testing Could Save the Cannabis Industry

SEATTLE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / June 26, 2015 / The cannabis industry has become one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. overnight, with several states legalizing medical and recreational marijuana, but the rapid growth hasn't come without its share of growing pains. Without a precedent in place, many states have failed to setup effective testing and labeling programs, creating a dangerous situation for many customers that can only be remedied by stricter standards and better testing.

Virtual reality may help alcoholics beat cravings

WEDNESDAY, June 24, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Virtual reality therapy may help alcoholics battle their addiction, a small study from South Korea suggests.

Researchers recruited 12 people being treated for alcoholism for the study. The volunteers went through a week-long detoxification program and then did two sessions of virtual reality therapy a week for five weeks.

The patients were presented with three virtual scenes: a relaxing environment; a high-risk setting in a restaurant where other people were drinking; and an aversion situation that featured the sights, sounds and smells of people getting sick from drinking too much.

Company takes serious approach

There are few, if any, facilities like this in North America.

ABcann Medicinals Inc. opened its door to the media Wednesday afternoon.

The medicinal marijuana company has been operating near the end of a quiet road on the outskirts of Napanee since the new year.

The facility was constructed in an existing building, but from the outer walls inward is all brand new and high-tech.

When fully up and running, chief operating officer Geoff Davis said, ABcann Medicinals will be able to produce from between 36 to 55 kilograms (80 to 120 pounds) of medicinal marijuana per month -- enough of the drug to supply about 2,500 patients.

"Hopefully, we are going to grow and have more jobs for the people in Napanee and Greater Napanee," Davis said.

Improved Communication Between Patients and Providers through Apps

A news feature appearing this week in Boston Globe describes work undertaken by PAINWeek faculty member Robert Jamison, PhD, and his associates to develop and test a smartphone app to help patients and clinicians better manage chronic pain and help to control the costs associated with so doing. Jamison, professor of anesthesia and psychiatry at the Brigham and Harvard Medical School, noted of the effort, “We’re trying to figure out a way to give (patients) support and keep them out of the hospital and prevent unnecessary testing. We really believe this will improve their ability to manage their condition which unfortunately we just can’t fix.” About 70 patients have been testing the app, called PMC 320, which is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

A Case Study in the Risks of Marijuana Biotech

Regular readers of MJINews hardly need to be persuaded that the growth of the legal marijuana market has made a number of entrepreneurs and their investors a lot of money. It will yet do more of the same. In another five years the industry could show total revenues of $35 billion, if all 50 states and Washington, D.C., legalize retail marijuana.  

But … there is no profit without risk, and it is well for those who would invest in this field, either capital or entrepreneurial energy or both, that they recognize the risk.

Organic Industry Wants Biotechnology Regulated By Process, Not Product

About 40 activist organizations that usually can be counted upon to rally with the organic industry against genetically engineered (GE) plants and animals did just that on Monday. They weighed in with a letter to USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) for the federal regulation of biotechnology products.

APHIS has been inviting such comments, even holding web-based hearings, since last March as it withdrew work to update its 1990s rule for regulating GE organisms and decided to start over with a blank slate.
