Testing for cannabis potency is problematic in chocolate edibles

Since recreational marijuana was first legalized in Washington and Colorado in 2012, edibles have become a huge part of the cannabis industry. 

Edibles are foods infused with cannabis, and these days you can find everything from gummy bears to cookies to chocolate bars that contain marijuana at dispensaries. 

These cannabinoid-infused treats have flooded the market, but a new study has found that components in chocolate are leading to inaccurate potency test results. 

Edible manufacturers must adhere to strict labeling and potency standards.

CDC flags one death and nearly 200 cases of lung illnesses in U.S, possibly tied to vaping

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday it had identified 193 potential cases of severe lung illness tied to vaping in 22 states as of Aug. 22, including one adult in Illinois who died after being hospitalized.

The CDC has been investigating a “cluster” of lung illnesses that it believes may be linked to e-cigarette use, although it has not yet been able to establish whether they were in fact caused by vaping.

E-cigarettes are generally thought to be safer than traditional cigarettes, which kill up to half of all lifetime users, according to the World Health Organization. But the long-term health effects of vaping are largely unknown.

Thailand turns seized cannabis into medical products

Thai authorities have announced plans to begin converting seized cannabis from illicit growers into oil for medical marijuana patients.

The police seized more than 1,000 kg from a criminal gang this week and they have passed it on Department of Thai Traditional, Alternative Medicine and the Department of Medical Sciences to process. That will yield 600,000 bottles of cannabis oil for the domestic medicinal market, while the department will hold back 5 kg for medical experiments.

How renewable energy is being applied to cannabis

When we talk about adding renewable energy to the U.S. power supply, there is often a lot of talk about getting that power from the supply source (the solar farm or wind turbines, etc.) to the local power grid. There is less talk of what happens once that power hits the grid and how buildings may be able to adapt to the influx of power from renewable sources.

Can site managers capitalize on renewable energy inputs to optimize energy consumption?

“Guerrilla planting:” how some pot activists make a statement

The capitol buildings of Vermont are guarded by surveillance cameras and the Capitol Police Department.

On July 4, thousands of people stood on and around the lawns to celebrate Independence Day. The following week, while the legislature was not in session, a tourist alerted an officer that cannabis might be growing in the flowerbeds.

“We absolutely believe they were intentionally planted,” says Matthew Romei, chief of the Capitol Police Department. The state legalized recreational cannabis in 2018, but it still prohibits people from growing the plant in public. Officers expected to find one stray plant, but they dug up more than 30 immature stems.
