Here Are Some Of The Weirdest Products Containing CBD

California Tests Find Illegal Vapes Tainted With Additives

California officials announced Monday that marijuana vape cartridges seized in illegal shops in Los Angeles contained potentially dangerous additives, including a thickening agent blamed for a national outbreak of deadly lung illnesses tied to vaping.

Officials also found that the illegal vapes confiscated in the December raids typically were not as potent as advertised, and sometimes contained just a fraction of the THC claimed on the labels, according to state testing results. THC is the chemical in marijuana that makes users feel high.

The findings highlight the risk for consumers at underground shops and delivery services that are common in Los Angeles and elsewhere around California, officials said.

Washington Bill Looks to Ban Marijuana Concentrates

There is no doubt about it, lawmakers are always trying to find new ways to spoil the fun we’re all supposed to be having out here in the big, bad world. And Washington state is certainly no exception.

Some of the suits in Olympia are now so convinced that high-powered marijuana is contributing to a wicked increase in psychotic behavior that they are now pushing to outlaw most of the cannabis concentrates presently sold in dispensaries statewide. It’s an attempt to establish a prohibition 2.0 in a place where weed has been legal for the past six years. Lawmakers just can’t let go of the leash, which some believe will cause a savage uprising in illegal shenanigans that could, in turn, bring about much darker days than the ones they are trying to get away from.

Is CBD Really FDA Approved?

The CBD industry is growing at an astounding pace. According to a February 25, 2019 report from Cowen Inc., a multinational independent investment bank and financial services company, “The U.S. CBD market could represent a $16 billion opportunity by 2025.” That’s extraordinary for an industry where hemp production just became federally legal less than two years ago as part of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Is hemp the product of the future?

Last week we discussed the amazing and fast-growing bamboo. This week we are going to discuss another fast-growing plant by the name of hemp.

Although they belong to the same family of cannabis, there is a big difference between industrial hemp and hemp grown for the drug/THC effect. Industrial hemp contains less than .02% THC whereas marijuana has levels anywhere from 2% to 20% depending on the strain. We will be discussing industrial hemp in this discussion.

Could Hemp Really Replace Cotton?

Hemp, a member of the Cannabis sativa family, can trace its uses back to as early as 8000 BCE. Traditionally, the fiber of hemp was widely used to produce items such as clothing and fishing nets, while the oil was applied for cosmetic purposes. 

In the 20th century, hemp was determined to be an illegal substance due to its native structure. Hemp is a close relative to the marijuana plant, both indistinguishable in look. Hemp does not, however, boast the psychological effects of marijuana.
