Three Reasons To Adopt AI Automation Technology In Your Grow Operation

The beauty of cannabis cultivation is in its complexity. Small adjustments to the growing environment can mean big payoffs come harvest time. It's a space for calculated creativity in order to get ideal yields under specific growing conditions.

New testing device said to be able to differentiate between hemp and high-THC cannabis

Cannabis tech company GemmaCert Ltd. has revealed a new product that it claims can test the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (aka THC, the intoxicating compound in the cannabis plant) in just minutes.

This, the company noted, would allow law enforcement and other agencies to quickly establish whether a crop qualifies as hemp, defined under U.S. federal rules as cannabis that contains less than 0.3 per cent THC. The Israel-based test makers said the product can detect THC content as low as 0.2 per cent.

Study Sheds Light On “Hot Hemp”

Some widely held assumptions on THC levels in hemp have been put under the spotlight in a recent study.

While hemp has far less of the intoxicating cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than its cousin marijuana (low THC levels are what makes a cannabis sativa plant hemp legally speaking), it still varies enough to cause headaches for farmers.

Where hemp is legal, the maximum THC level permitted depends on the jurisdiction – but it’s usually anywhere from .3% to 1%. Even a little over whatever limit has been put in place and the crop becomes “hot hemp” and will usually have to be destroyed. In addition to the loss of the crop, the farmer may be charged with offences related to growing marijuana depending on circumstances and regulations.
