Cannabis industry pink slips keep rolling in

Over the coming decade, cannabis is liable to be one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. Although estimates on Wall Street vary wildly -- which is to be expected in an industry that has no modern legal precedent -- the legal pot industry could see sales rise between five and 18 times by 2030 over the $10.9 billion generated in 2018.

Marijuana is also forecast to be a significant job creator. As of early 2019, more than 211,000 jobs were now tied to the U.S. cannabis industry -- the U.S. is the crown jewel of the global marijuana market -- with 64,000 jobs added in 2018 alone.

What you should know about flying with CBD

Tips abound on how to pack your cannabis in luggage or what the TSA would actually do if they discovered your stash, but what about flying with CBD?

Thanks to a patchwork of legalization across state lines, traveling with marijuana is a question many ask as of late.

With thousands of acres near harvest in Tennessee, one TSU researcher is worried about how some processors extract hemp oil.

Dr. Roy Bullock is the Director of the hemp program at TSU. He knows there are many processors in the state, but isn't sure about what methods everyone is using.

"Right now, with everybody in the hemp program, nobody is exactly sure about any processes that [are] going on," said Dr. Bullock. "We don't know exactly what they're doing from a university standpoint."

Hemp can be extracted in a number of ways. Dr. Bullock said, in his opinion, the way that shows the most promise is by using liquid frozen carbon dioxide.
