In fact, the study published in Forensic Science International found that joints waste 300 percent more THC than dabs. The study […]

A joint Canadian-US effort has identified the genes that produce THC and CBD. While the genome of the cannabis plant was sequenced back in 2011, researchers have struggled to isolate the genes responsible for producing the plant’s two most prominent chemicals, mostly due to what researchers call “junk DNA.” The discovery of the genes will make it […]

When you look at the resin glands or trichomes of a cannabis plant, most of the THC inside those glands is actually THCA. THCA is the acidic precursor of what most people think of as psychoactive THC, which is called delta-9-THC.

CBD alone has already been demonstrated to be medically effective, but researchers determined that adding a “conservative” amount of THC strengthened results. Research at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children found that use […]

Extremely low levels of the compound in marijuana known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, may slow or halt the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, a recent study from neuroscientists shows. Researchers from the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute showed that extremely low doses of THC reduce the production of amyloid beta, found in a soluble form in […]

Colorado’s edible marijuana manufacturers face new restrictive guidelines related to the  labeling, packaging, and potency of their products. According The Denver Post, the new rules will do away with all single-package edibles that have over 100 milligrams of THC, the maximum amount of the psychoactive component allowed by state law. Products still may contain up to 100 milligrams […]

Cannabis Therapy Corp.  plans to focus on low-THC, CBD-rich hemp in order to bypass one of the major concerns associated with the use of medical marijuana—the psychoactive effect of THC. By using naturally low-THC hemp rather than traditionally high-THC marijuana cultivars, the company aims to develop over-the-counter nutraceutical products that offer the beneficial components of […]

Spain is experiencing a resurgence of hemp, one of the species of cannabis with the lowest THC content, which has been used to produce textile, medicinal and food products. “Hemp production could be a green revolution that would help reduce unemployment in rural areas in these times of economic crisis,” said the president of the […]

The cannabis strain “Stevie Wonder” is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a very high THC count. The strain, which is in fact named after the famous R&B singer, produces a clear-headed mild mental high, qualifying it as a good choice for morning medication. Read Full Story On http://www.thecannabist.co
