As the global COVID-19 pandemic provides a window into cannabis’s increasing revenue potential, the industry’s Achilles heel on production scalability is being laid bare.

Broad Spectrum CBD: Comparing Broad Spectrum & Full Spectrum CBD

Buying CBD products can be confusing to say the least. One thing that often perplexes CBD consumers is the difference between broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD.

Making Sense Of Cannabis Warning Labels And Their Effectiveness

Cannabis is safer than alcohol.

How much so?

According to at least one peer reviewed study the cannabis plant is 114 times safer than alcohol.

In fact, the cannabis plant is safer than many substances that are common around households across the globe.

With that being said, that is not the same as saying that cannabis does not have any side effects.

The cannabis plant can definitely cause side effects, albeit effects that are not as detrimental compared to those caused by other substances.

The list of the cannabis plant’s side effects very notably does not include death, however, there are still certain side effects that consumers need to know about.

While artificial intelligence, in some ways, can be those things, what it is in practice often looks much different.

The artificial intelligence that many people talk about today can also be referred to as machine learning, or the process by which software takes in data, learns patterns, and makes whatever adjustments it needs to make to achieve its goal.

The goal in our case?

Maximizing cannabis yields and sales.

Marijuana edibles must not look like candy

Marijuana edibles are not for children — yet they look often look like candy, which is. Unsurprisingly, since many states legalized marijuana sales and consumption, there’s been an uptick in the number of children getting into their parents’ stash of edibles, and eating them like, well, candy.

Here in Massachusetts, South Shore Health reports that its pediatric emergency department has seen a rise in cases involving kids who’ve become ill after eating candies, chocolates, sours and “gummies” that contain THC over the past few months.

The health system told NewsCenter 5 that a teenager was treated in the emergency department last week after having consumed five fruit-flavored candies that each contained 600 mg of THC.
