Potential Razor Hidden in California Assembly Bill 228 Threatens to Slash at CBD-Rich Cannabis Producers

We are all about safe access for all, especially when it comes to the medicinal use of cannabis or hemp. Lower priced hemp products are not inherently bad, and those that are farmed and produced ethically need to have a place in the market but this feels like a deadly blow to the already niche market of CBD-rich cannabis production in California and that is scary.

Two Dollar Pre-Rolls & Pike Caviar: Something for Everyone at Hall of Flowers 2019

Living up to its name, the vast majority of the vendors at the Hall of Flowers show were there to push cannabis and cannabis-infused goods. There has been some critique online already about the quality of the buds on display but we found it to be a pretty damn accurate depiction of the legal market as it stands today - some absolute fire in a sea of midgrade, mass produced boof. The fact of the matter is that if they limited the show to only companies providing 5-star weed on the legal market, they could hold it in a walk-in closet. Instead, what we saw were a lot of well-funded startups trying their hardest to keep their heads above water while also trying to appear equal parts authentic and confident. Many of them will figure it out, some will not. . . that’s business.

Zach Eisenberg of Anresco Laboratories tells us, “Accreditation will not completely eliminate lab variability or bad actors, but it will help.  The result should be more meaningful test results and subsequently safer products, which will benefit both consumers and the industry as a whole.” Now those are the results we’ve been waiting for.

AB 1356 Would Force California Counties Who Voted for Prop 64 to Allow Cannabis Retailers Based on Their Number of Liquor Stores

This bill, like all cannabis legislation it seems, has its flaws, but we love the provision that the same lawmakers who approved X number of liquor stores within spitting distance of schools, parks, churches, and DMVs would now have to count them all up and divide by four and start writing cannabis license approvals right away.

State Inspection Reveals Cali Cannabis Lab Has Been Faking Test Results for Months

Growers and manufacturers spend even more time and money doing preliminary R&D product testing hoping to identify and eliminate any issues before the crucial final compliance testing.

Will the Future of Cannabis See Any Need for Weed?

One of the fundamental barriers to true, nationwide legalization here is, and has always been, the fact that you can grow it in your backyard and cut Uncle Sam out of the middle. But, ten years from now, will that be the only place to get an actual bag of weed?

FACTS vs. FICTION: Does Cannabis Cure Breast Cancer?

We have to be very careful as advocates of the cannabis plant to not oversell, or overpromise, its medicinal benefits. Cancer takes many different forms and affects people in different ways - as does cannabis. But there is some compelling data, backed by thousands of pieces of anecdotal evidence, that suggests that while cannabis might not always cure cancer, it is always worth a shot.

Why Medical Marijuana Patients Should Consider Cannabis Suppositories

Many experts agree that it is very possible to increase the delivery rate by which THC enters one’s system, and the most effective way so far has been through the use of cannabis suppositories which can deliver 80% of the cannabis plant’s medicinal value to a patient in need. That’s right – in many cases, ingesting cannabis by mouth is far less effective than approaching the situation from a different angle.
