Pennsylvania lawmakers approve bill to spur research on medical marijuana

Legislation designed to get a research provision of Pennsylvania's medical marijuana law back on track is headed to the governor's desk.

Both chambers voted Friday for a bill that was drafted in response to a Commonwealth Court judge's decision last month to halt Health Department regulations for licenses issued to growers and dispensaries that partner with state medical schools.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf's office says he'll sign it.

Supporters say the research component of the medical marijuana law will pay dividends in years to come, as the businesses and medical schools work to learn more about how the drug helps patients and develop products and applications.

Key marijuana drug approval looms as cannabis goes mainstream

GW Pharmaceuticals, which has spent 20 years developing medicines from cannabis, is hoping for a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) green light by June 27, after winning support from an advisory panel in April.

Some parents already use cannabis to help children with severe forms of epilepsy, but such therapy is not monitored or licensed.

Scientists told a briefing in London on Thursday that new research was unlocking the potential of certain cannabis compounds.

 “We’ve learnt a huge amount about cannabis,” said Valerie Curran, head of the clinical psychopharmacology unit at University College London. “It is still early, but it is proving a treasure chest of potential medicines.”

Colorado offering MMJ research grants, for autism, opioid prevention and more

Clinical trials that study medical marijuana are few and far between because of the plant's federally illegal status. Colorado has been the rare exception to that rule, thanks to the passage of Amendment 64, and now the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment hopes to expand on the state's nine currently funded MMJ studies by offering nearly $3 million more in grants for qualified research efforts.

Oregon marijuana growers turning to hemp as CBD extract explodes

A glut of legal marijuana is driving Oregon pot prices to rock-bottom levels, prompting some nervous growers to start pivoting to another type of cannabis to make ends meet, one that doesn’t come with a high.

Applications for state licenses to grow hemp, marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin, have increased more than twentyfold since 2015, making Oregon No. 2 behind Colorado among the 19 states with active hemp cultivation. The rapidly evolving market comes amid skyrocketing demand for a hemp-derived extract called cannabidiol, or CBD, seen by many as a health aid.

A higher calling: How Israeli marijuana research changed the world

As much of the world debates how to address marijuana use, the vast majority of American states have legalized it or allow it for medical purposes. Global pharmaceutical companies and hospitals seeking effective treatments using cannabis should look to Professor Raphael Mechoulam, a scientist at Hebrew University. Mechoulam, a pioneer in the field, was the first to isolate, analyze and synthesize the major psychoactive and non-psychoactive compounds in cannabis and has developed a number of revolutionary marijuana-related treatments.

Social cannabis use areas: If weed really were treated like alcohol

Advocates of Denver's first social cannabis use initiative haven't been shy about their disdain for the city's implementation of the voter-approved measure. After Initiative 300 won in November 2016, it took nearly a year for the city's task force to come up with regulations, and under those rules only one business has been approved so far.

Nation's only federally authorized grower provides marijuana for research community

With 29 states and counting currently allowing medical marijuana, research on new and better usages is becoming increasingly important.

Much of the research community relies on the University of Mississippi, the only federally authorized grower of marijuana, under a contract with the National Institute of Drug Abuse, to supply the plant material needed to continue exploring medicinal marijuana research.

As consumer demand for marijuana increases lab testing will become increasingly essential

The lab testing market is one of the most overlooked opportunities within the marijuana industry and we are favorable on this vertical of the business. Demand for marijuana continues to increase, and these products need to be tested by a licensed lab before being sold to consumers.

Demand for legal marijuana will only increase as new marijuana markets open and as existing markets mature. In January, California’s recreational marijuana market opened, and this led to a significant increase in demand for marijuana. These types of developments are catalysts for lab testing companies and we have been monitoring this sector.
