How a Michigan-made marijuana testing company went national

There have been a lot of people with dreams of making it big in the marijuana business. A few years ago investors were flooding into lawyers' offices seeking partnerships with locals, and the ideal was to figure out what worked so you could franchise it across the state — and ultimately across the nation.

That may still be how it works out, but it's been a bumpy ride up till now with Michigan's recalcitrant state government.

Iron Laboratories, LLC, a cannabis testing facility based in Walled Lake, was started by a group with a dream and a plan to expand into a national business. They got the good news that they were among the first businesses to be granted licenses by the state of Michigan. That's a huge step for Iron Labs.

Marijuana stinks. Here’s what California can do about it.

Even the most ardent marijuana lovers can’t deny it: The plant, at least to some noses, stinks.

Marijuana odors have triggered lawsuits against cannabis companies. They’ve also led residents to try to block commercial operations from coming to California and the other eight states where recreational cannabis is legal and, increasingly, big business.

Odor has sparked some neighborhood friction, too, as marijuana smoke drifts from one apartment or yard to the next. There are products on the market that claim to test for smells, block all odors from wafting out of indoor operations, and even help control the stench of outdoor marijuana farms.

Officials seek to overturn edible marijuana ruling

Attorneys for a Yavapai County resident are asking the Arizona Supreme Court to overturn a lower court decision which makes criminals out of medical marijuana patients who choose to use edibles and liquids rather than smoking the plant's dried flowers and leaves.

In new filings, the lawyers contend the state Court of Appeals got it wrong earlier this year when it concluded in a 2-1 ruling that a 2010 voter-approved law that legalized the medical use of marijuana does not cover products made from hashish and other extracts of the plant. The majority concluded that hashish, essentially the resin of the cannabis plant and the products made from the resin are legally not the same as the plant itself and its possession remains a crime, even for medical marijuana users..

Why the adult cannabis market could kill its medical counterpart

As more states continue to legalize recreational marijuana—the current tally is nine and Washington, D.C.--speculation is afoot among industry pundits that this could be the precursor to a major slowdown, if not death knell, for the medical marijuana industry, which has 30 states and D.C. allowing its use.

How medical marijuana is opening the door to recreational cannabis

On October 17, 2018, Canada will become the first G-7 Country to allow citizens to consume recreational marijuana. This is the fulfillment of a campaign promise of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as well as the culmination of the cultural normalization of cannabis that has been ongoing since medical marijuana was approved in 2002.

While this is a tremendous event for the cannabis industry in Canada, it is by no means the end of the story and it is fair to say that trends across the globe would indicate that Canada will not be alone in legalization for very long.

Does cooking with cannabis get rid of the THC?

Cooking with cannabis won’t obliterate the potency of the THC so long as you play within the right temperatures.

Cooking with cannabis doesn’t have to be a gamble between accidentally being locked to the couch, or wondering, after hours of waiting, if you wasted all that weed for nothing. Edibles can be a truly enjoyable experience so long as precision is involved.

The first place to start is knowing how cannabis reacts when heated. THC starts to degrade and evaporate at approximately 365 degrees, which is why most recipes suggest hitting around 350 degrees, and staying there. Generally speaking, lower cooking temperatures are better to not lose potency.

Canadian cannabis dispensary worker uses bong to fight off bandits wielding bear spray

Security cameras in a cannabis dispensary in Canada have captured the moment a man used a bong to fight off three would-be bandits wielding cans of bear spray. CCTV footage showed three men with their heads covered enter the premises in Tyendinaga, Ontario, before one of the men sprayed a man and woman working behind the counter.

The staff ducked, before the man emerged clutching a bong that he used to fend off the men. Tyendinaga Police appealed to the public to help identify the "four males, believed to be of middle eastern decent (sic)" that attempted to rob the Recreational Cannabis Farmers Market.

Edibles, including cannabis beer, set to dominate weed market once legal

One day, we could be heading to bars for a different kind of buzz. Just imagine: cannabis beer flowing from the taps of your favourite watering hole. This is the vision of Toronto-based start-up Province Brands Canada.

CEO Dooma Wendschu says his company has developed the world’s first beer that is actually brewed from marijuana, not just infused with oil. When it hits the market, likely some time in 2019, it won’t contain alcohol so you won’t get drunk but you could get stoned.

“Our products will feel more like the sensation of smoking marijuana. Our beer is designed to be sessionable so you can enjoy two or three over the course of a long dinner or three or four while watching the game,” Said Wendschu
