Hemp vs. Marijuana: Why can't cops tell them apart?

Last February, the Idaho State police pulled over a truck carrying 6,701 pounds of hemp and promptly seized it, allegedly claiming it was marijuana. Now the cultivators of that hemp, Big Sky Scientific, are suing the police, the county, and an attorney. If you’ve been following hemp news recently, then you have probably seen a few of these stories surfacing. Cops across the country seem to be mistaking legal industrial hemp with illegal marijuana (at least in some states like Idaho).. 

So what gives? Here’s why cops may keep confusing hemp for marijuana, and how to tell the difference.

4 stocks giving investors direct exposure to CBD

Few if any industries have been as unstoppable of late as legal marijuana. Since the beginning of 2016, most pot stocks have seen their valuations rise by a triple-digit or quadruple-digit percentage, with global growth estimates for the industry soaring following the legalization of adult-use weed in Canada and multiple medical cannabis legalizations in countries around the globe.

Can marijuana revive the restaurant industry?

The trend of infusing food and beverages with cannabis has been gaining steam steadily since Colorado and Washington first legalized marijuana in 2012. While brewers were early adopters in mixing legal weed and its derivatives into beer, and THC "edibles" have long been popular, restaurants may be the next logical frontier for the cannabis industry. Is pot the potential answer to reversing the decline in overall restaurant revenues?

Cannabis-infused products are changing the future of marijuana stocks

The marijuana industry has shifted quite rapidly over the course of the past several months to a year or so. In that time, the research regarding the substance as well as the legislation has both shifted in the favor of a brighter market overall. It seems as though we have entered one of the friendliest spaces to invest in the industry since its inception.

One of the major breakthroughs has been the growth of the cannabis-infusion market whether that be edibles, tinctures, drinks or so on. These products have seen a large amount of success, and the companies that produce them have done the same.

Study: Cannabis use associated with fewer disease-related complications in crohn’s disease patients

Crohn’s disease patients seeking hospitalization who use marijuana possess fewer disease-related complications as compared to matched controls, according to data published in the journal Digestive Diseases and Sciences.

A team of investigators from the John H. Stroger Hospital in Chicago, the SUNY Downstate Medical Centre in New York City, and the Digestive Disease Institute in Cleveland assessed the relationship between cannabis use and the prevalence of Crohn’s disease-related complications and clinical outcomes in a nationwide cohort of hospitalized patients.

U.S. gains ground on struggling Canada in race for pot revenue

Planet 13 Holdings Inc. generated more revenue from its one flagship store in Las Vegas last month than Cronos Group Inc. did across Canada in the fourth quarter, yet Cronos’s market value is about 21 times larger than Planet 13’s.

The valuation gap is just one dramatic example of the persistent disconnect between Canadian and U.S. cannabis stocks, and a reminder of the potential size of the American pot market as legalization spreads.

7 marijuana companies: Which pot stocks should you buy?

Of the 46 marijuana stocks in the North American Marijuana Index, I guess that a handful of them are currently making money. That’s the extent of it.

From that perspective, it’s a very daunting task picking the winners from the losers, because they all tell a good tale. But when it comes to separating the wheat from the chaff, the stocks to buy and sell aren’t nearly as easy to uncover.

Setting quality assurance standards in the cannabis industry: QA workers and growers need to be part of the conversation

Quality control. It’s vital to a company’s existence, and when selling cannabis that people are consuming, it’s expected.

The goal is likely best achieved by instituting standardization of rules, testing and practices that ensure all cultivators and growers are on the same quality assurance (QA) page.
