Water-soluble delivery system improves CBD bioavailability and strength

A company has filed a patent for a technology that will help delivery of fat-soluble medications, including CBD.

Holista CollTech has filed its 100%-owned global patent for platform technology that will deliver many fat-soluble medications, including CBD, by creating a water-soluble delivery system.

Due to the way CBD is absorbed into the body, the new technology will make CBD formulations up to 40 times more potent, allowing patients to reduce their dosages significantly, as well as making CBD oil more palatable for the young and the elderly.

‘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.

Microscopic images reveal the most potent cannabis flowers in incredible detail

Scientists have studied the trichomes (or "cellular factories") of the cannabis plant in extreme detail, revealing that flowers with mushroom-shaped hairs are the most potent—both in terms of smell and cannabinoid content.

"Trichomes are the biochemical factories of the cannabis plant and this study is the foundation for understanding how they make and store their valuable products," co-lead author Teagen Quilichini, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (UBC), said in a statement.

‘What you search for predicts what you’ll buy’: Google queries for CBD explode

CBD is taking over the internet.

A new study has revealed that the number of Google searches for cannabidiol (CBD) has been on a meteoric rise over the past few years, peaking at 6.4 million in April of this year alone.

“We think of dieting as being the most popular health search term ever, and for every two searches for dieting, there’s one for CBD,” John Ayers, co-author of the study and associate professor at the University of California, told ABC News.

“What you search for predicts what you buy.”

Weed breathalyzer may reassure Policymakers

When New Jersey lawmakers debated earlier this year whether to legalize recreational use of marijuana, the Garden State’s police organizations were adamantly against it.

The cops said that legal weed might lead to an explosion in the numbers of impaired drivers operating under the influence. And the police would be caught flatfooted trying to tell whether drivers they pulled over were high or not.

“With alcohol, if you have over 0.08% in your blood, there’s the presumption that you’re intoxicated,” said Christopher Leusner, head of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police.

“There hasn’t been a blood test or a breath test that can determine if you’re impaired by marijuana.”

Now there is.
