How The Pollen Wars Are Hurting The Cannabis Industry

While medical marijuana and hemp are both varieties of cannabis, the way these plants reproduce can make vast differences in the type, potency, and quantities of the chemicals they express. As medical marijuana and hemp farms increase in size and presence, a resultant war is heating up in the very air around them. 

Let me explain. When hemp and cannabis cross-pollinate, the quality of each diminishes: Cannabinoid potency in cannabis females can reduce, while THC in hemp can increase. This is a recipe for disaster. Cross-pollination ruins crops and costs untold financial damage.

The 'Green Rush' In North America Is Leading To A Serious Boom In Farmland

While the coronavirus pandemic has caused the collapse of retail businesses across the globe, there is one thing people have been buying more of during months of lockdown: marijuana.

The summer of 2020 has brought record-breaking heat waves and wildfires to California, with more than 3 million acres burned and smoke-filled air covering the majority of the state. As the fires burn, cannabis cultivators across the state are racing to finish and harvest their crops. But the fires can be disastrous for this process, in some cases even destroying plants that are spared by the flames.

Growers are being hurt worse than most other businesses hit by fire: Cannabis crops are more difficult to insure because growing the plant is still illegal under federal law.
