Taking the guess work out of analysing cannabis edibles

Cannabis, hemp and CBD experts, Dr Kaveh Kahen and Dr Toby Astill, discuss the analysis process for cannabis edibles, outlining the challenges and solutions available.

In 2017, the Specialty Food Association predicted that cannabis would be a leading trend in the food and beverage industry from 2018 onwards. Since then, several global food and beverage manufacturers have shown a strong interest in this space, having explored the addition of legalised cannabis to their product portfolios.

With this cannabis-infused toothpaste painful trips to the dentist could soon be a thing of the past

Painful trips to the dentist could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a new line of cannabis-infused toothpaste.

Dr. Veronica Stahl, a dentist and the cofounder of Cannabite LifeLong, told the Daily Star that the drug holds the potential to treat a wide range of dental issues. Cannabis is antibacterial and capable of fighting plaque, she said, making it a perfect ingredient for toothpaste.

“Our solutions, built on emerging medical research, rely on the natural extracts of the plant with healing properties and the human body’s endocannabinoid system,” she said. “It’s very exciting.”

Hemp farmers and processors work out kinks during first legal harvest in more than 80 years

In 2018, the U.S. Congress lifted a pre-World War II restriction that made it illegal for farmers to grow industrial hemp—a variety of the cannabis sativa plant that contains less than .3% THC.

More than 500 Michigan farmers are licensed to grow the crop. This year, they farmed around 30,000 acres of hemp.

Dave Crabill is a hemp grower and vice president of iHemp Michigan, an organization that connects hemp farmers, processers, and manufacturers. We talked to him about this year's harvest and the future of hemp farming in Michigan.

Linx Hermes 3, the Best Refillable Oil Vaporizer on the Market

The recent news over vaping illness is very troubling for cannabis manufactures and vaporizer companies alike. Now more than ever, it’s important to use high quality products when consuming concentrates. To further complicate things, vaporizers purchased on the black market use cheap, untested disposable cartridges along with low quality, untested, pesticide laden oils. That’s why it’s vitally important that you purchase cannabis oil from licensed manufactures. Disposable cartridges on the other hand, while convenient, have their limitations. It’s hard to find a “one size fits all” cartridge in the market today — certain cartridges are only compatible with certain viscosity oils. Oil can be wasted due to inefficient heating with traditional disposables as well.

Weed breathalyzer may reassure Policymakers

When New Jersey lawmakers debated earlier this year whether to legalize recreational use of marijuana, the Garden State’s police organizations were adamantly against it.

The cops said that legal weed might lead to an explosion in the numbers of impaired drivers operating under the influence. And the police would be caught flatfooted trying to tell whether drivers they pulled over were high or not.

“With alcohol, if you have over 0.08% in your blood, there’s the presumption that you’re intoxicated,” said Christopher Leusner, head of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police.

“There hasn’t been a blood test or a breath test that can determine if you’re impaired by marijuana.”

Now there is.

Massachusetts vaping sales ban can stand, but needs fixes: U.S. judge

A Massachusetts judge on Monday declined to immediately halt a ban on the sale of vaping products adopted after an outbreak of e-cigarette-related lung injuries, but he said the state must redo the ban and get public comment this time.

The ruling by Suffolk County Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins in Boston was a partial victory for Republican Governor Charlie Baker, who through an executive order last month adopted the toughest sales ban of any state in response to the outbreak.

But Suffolk County Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins said Baker likely overreached his authority in issuing the order and said he would bar the state from enforcing the ban on nicotine-vaping product sales unless several defects were addressed.
