Israel & Canada high on budding medical cannabis ties

Experts warn government regulations tied to exporting marijuana could lose Israel billions of dollars in revenue

Israel, the so-called Start-up Nation, could soon become known as the Silicon Valley of medical marijuana if leaders in the industry have their way. Israel’s medical cannabis sector is flourishing, thanks in part to growing business ties with Canada, which will officially legalize marijuana in October. Hundreds of millions of dollars in deals between Canadian and Israeli companies have already been inked, with investments covering innovative products treating a wide range of health issues—from cancer, to epilepsy, to sleep disorders.

Battle Royale: Davinci MIQRO V. Davinci IQ

You would be forgiven for being confused when looking at the DaVinci MIQRO and the DaVinci IQ. They are so similar they could almost be twins. We say almost because there is one obvious difference between the two and that is that the MIQRO is a miniature version of its big brother, the IQ.

Having been around for a while now the IQ is well established as one of the best dry herb vaporizers that is available, so in this feud between siblings the big question is which one will come out on top? Let the battle Royale commence between these DaVinci Vaporizers!

Marijuana breathalyzer aims to detect high drivers 'without unjustly accusing'

A breathalyzer able to determine if a driver smoked pot could roll out in select cities in the fall, according to a company developing the first-of-its-kind product. 

With recreational weed now legal in nine states and the District of Columbia, California-based Hound Labs Inc. has created a marijuana-breathalyzer it says will make  roads safer and hold drivers accountable. The company claims the device is hyper-sensitive, allowing it to pick up any THC potentially present on drivers' breath.

"The Hound breathalyzer is 1 billion times more sensitive than today’s alcohol breathalyzers," the company says on its site.

California marijuana products delayed by backlogs in testing labs

Delays could drive sales back to illegal market, industry experts say. With peanut butter, white chocolate chips and about 1,000 milligrams of THC, “The Elvis” was quite the delicious and powerful marijuana treat for some.

The 400-calorie cookie came with a warning: “This is a high potency medical product for experienced consumers only. If you are new to edible cannabis, chose a lower potency product.”

“The Elvis” is one of hundreds of cannabis products that can no longer be legally sold, since California implemented new testing, packaging and dosing standards on July 1.

First marijuana breathalyzer test created by California company

A California company said it has created the first marijuana breathalyzer test, which has the potential to be used by police to detect whether drivers have used the drug. 

As more states legalize marijuana for recreational and medical use, law enforcement officials have grown increasingly concerned about individuals driving while high. Until now, police officers in the U.S. did not have any roadside means to determine whether a driver had consumed cannabis.

State of Colorado “mandatory pesticide testing” does little to address exposure to toxic chemicals in cannabis products

Denver—August 1, 2018—Today the State of Colorado implemented “mandatory pesticide testing” for the first time. Many consumers may be surprised to learn that a highly taxed industry functioning within significant regulations in licensing, permitting and beyond, has little oversight on the pesticides used on plants that are ultimately consumed by humans.

While Colorado has outlawed many pesticides and approved hundreds more for use, enforcement has been left in the hands of cultivators, leaving the potential that bad actors could take advantage of the system. Today’s regulations barely scratch the surface, requiring testing that will detect just over a dozen of the thousands of potentially harmful chemicals that could end up on this plant.
