“CBD candy” is this year’s Halloween bogeyman

Every year around this time, The Cannabist chronicles how THC became the new razor blade in your kid’s trick-or-treat pail.

With Halloween 2017 right around the corner, it looks like there’s a new bogeyman, at least in some parts of the country: “CBD candy.” Continue reading ““CBD candy” is this year’s Halloween bogeyman”

Going into its fourth harvest, industrial hemp industry still facing growing pains

The first hint that Damian Farris isn’t your typical farmer is the nickname of his mud-splattered white pickup truck: “Smoked Tofu.”

Four years ago he was a hippie with no farming experience and a passion for weed. Now he’s the co-founder of Colorado Cultivars, the self-proclaimed country’s largest hemp farm, just east of Eaton. The marijuana dispensary owner turned industrial hemp grower navigates the farm’s sprawling fields like an old pro.

Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP) Bounces on Potential CBD Pivot

Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP) is a micro-cap stock that has started to garner attention as the stock bounces up the chart. The key catalyst of late is the company’s act of bringing online its hemp processing facility. Hemp Inc has also been trying to get mileage with investors on its purchase of what it calls a “NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical Extractor”, which is obviously quite an elaborate name for something that apparently is supposed to take this company into the CBD oil space.

United Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:CNAB) Sparks Up in Jamaica

United Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:CNAB) is a cannabis play that has offered one wild ride after another over the past 9 months. One might see CNAB down from $3/share to under a dollar and think it’s weak. But seen another way, if you bought it at $0.16 last September, you’re up 350% in under a year. (Last time I checked, that ain’t bad). Continue reading “United Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:CNAB) Sparks Up in Jamaica”

Texas Hopes Crickets Like Cannabis Oil

Many Texans hope the state legislature will get serious about legalizing a comprehensive medical marijuana program during the 2017 session, but most have forgotten that the state is close to rolling out a scheme to distribute low-THC cannabis oil for epilepsy patients.

Does ‘The World’s First Cannabis Antidote’ Actually Work?

A few months ago, I saw an advertisement online for a Seattle-area company touting “The World’s First Cannabis Antidote.” I was skeptical.

For one thing, people have been getting high—and subsequently, too high—for thousands of years. Surely this couldn’t be the first time someone had attempted to address the issue. Continue reading “Does ‘The World’s First Cannabis Antidote’ Actually Work?”
