With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp became legal across the country. The new regulation led to a booming industry for hemp-derived goods. Due to progress in machinery and procedures, hemp producers now have different technologies for obtaining cannabinoids other than CBD, such as delta 8 THC.

There are various forms of THC molecules, the most prevalent of which is the delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC, on the other hand, is swiftly gaining favor, owing to its gentler euphoric effects and reduced anxiety levels. Such goods are legalized federally due to their hemp origins.

Kevin Durant wants to shut down marijuana stereotypes in sports

Kevin Durant

 

Nets star Kevin Durant will be partnering with Weedmaps, an online market that sells marijuana. In the process, Durant wants to prove stereotypes made on marijuana usage in sports wrong. On the Boardroom, CEO Rich Kleiman sat down with the 2X NBA Champion and Weedmaps CEO Chris Beals on this matter. In the discussion, Durant kept things real:

 

“The band aid has been ripped off. In the sports world, it’s kind of an undercover thing that players use cannabis and used it while they were actively playing. I always thought that was an interesting thing, even as I started coming into the league. You hear the conversation more and more around the league about it.”

These Drivers Test Positive For Marijuana More Than Any Other Substance

Is high driving becoming an issue that society needs to take seriously? The data on this subject is mixed.

Commercial drivers are testing positive for marijuana more these days than any other drug, according to a recent report from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

It’s an issue that many trucking companies and courier services must contend with as parts of the United States have gone legal. However, federal restrictions make testing positive for pot a big, fat no-no for commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders. Therefore, drivers can face a wealth of repercussions if they can’t pass a drug test.

Wastewater samples taken during 2020 show that methamphetamine (ice) use plunged in Australia during the first COVID-19 lockdown while cannabis use spiked, according to a new study led by the University of South Australia.

Western Australia recorded the largest drop in ice loads, falling more than 50 per cent between April and June 2020, attributed to border closures restricting imports of the popular drug. Cannabis is largely produced locally so national supplies were still plentiful, and wastewater samples reflected this, with all states except the Northern Territory showing large increases in cannabis use.

How To Consume Hemp Edibles

Hemp edibles have become one of the most popular ways to consume CBD. Here are some of the best and most important tips on how to consume them.

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is believed to have good benefits for the body because it binds to certain receptors which can be found on every organ in the body. It has also been shown that it impacts many physiological processes, and most importantly, it does it without the psychoactive high and other known effects that THC has. CBD and THC are members of the same family,  only THC comes from marijuana,  and CBD comes from hemp, which contains 0.3% or less of THC in total. Almost all CBD is found in commercially available drinks, and food comes from industrial hemp.
