Understanding Hemp sustainability and its Impact on the environment

One of the many advantages of hemp is its natural sustainability.

Over the last few decades, the effects of unsustainable practices have become more apparent than ever before. Accelerated climate change, inhuman working conditions, and a growing economic gap between countries are some of the biggest problems we face today.

By implementing sustainable farming and industrial techniques, we can help tackle these challenges and secure a better future for generations to come. But, to be successful, we need to find a feasible way to thrive from a social, environmental, and economic perspective.

This is where industrial hemp comes in.

Italy’s ‘cannabis light’ creates buzz even if the pot won’t

It’s been called the Italian “green gold rush.” Mild, barely there marijuana dubbed “cannabis light” has put Italy on the international weed map, producing hundreds of stores that sell pot by the pouch and attention from investors banking the legalization of stronger stuff will follow.

The flourishing retail industry around cannabis light — weed so non-buzzy, it’s essentially the decaf coffee of marijuana — surfaced as an unintended by-product of a law meant to restore Italy as a top producer of industrial hemp. Now, storefronts that peddle chemically ineffective hemp flowers in varieties such as “Chill Haus” and “Black Buddha” are getting blowback that some Italians fear will nip business in the bud.

But, few are familiar with cannabigerol (CBG). This rare cannabinoid has some surprising health benefits, according to several recent studies.

Some panelists argued that attempts by the major pharmaceutical companies to patent drugs from the cannabis plant should be challenged. Others said that for cannabis medicine to achieve globally accepted standards there would need to be an involvement from the pharmaceutical giants to fund the research.

Police ignore experts on pot & driving (again)

Now that recreational cannabis is legal in Illinois, the America’s sixth-most populous state, a collection of lawmakers, law-enforcement officials and public-safety advocates are now doing what’s been done almost everywhere else marijuana’s been legalized: ignoring advice from experts and pursuing yet another demonstrably failed punitive policy.
