Software Solutions for Scaling Cannabis Extraction

From the point of view of cannabis extraction, scaling production isn’t always a simple equation.

Scaling extraction means putting together puzzle pieces, often within rigid constructs of local regulations, astronomical equipment costs, and overwhelming data management. 

Even when a new extraction machine is financially feasible, local laws may restrict the handling of dangerous materials.

Worse, the backend data management piece can easily inundate a producer who’s used to working within a network of Excel sheets.

Profitable growth in the cannabis concentrate sector means hitting the sweet spot in a Venn diagram, comprising efficient output, compliance management, and robust production-tracking protocols.

‘Synthetic marijuana’ is a dangerous misnomer that people need to stop using

Synthetic cannabinoids do not taste like cannabis, do not provide the same high, and in a frightening number of cases, cause nasty side effects, including psychosis and death.

Lab-made cannabinoids — molecules meant to mimic natural compounds found in cannabis upon the body — are a relatively new group of drugs. They found their way out of research labs and onto the streets, starting to notably appear in the 2000s. Going by many names, including early brand “Spice,” it is also unfortunately referred to as “synthetic marijuana” by law enforcement, legislators, media, and the public.

Fact is, the name is a dangerous misnomer, as synthetic cannabinoids do not taste like cannabis, do not provide the same high, and can even be life threatening.
