THC pills 101: The absolute guide

Understanding THC pills is a bit challenging, mostly because several different medications fall under this umbrella term.

Whole-plant THC pills, isolated THC pills, synthetic THC pills – you get my point. To add to the confusion, THC pills are frequently called THC capsules or softgels.

Potential users may also wonder whether THC pills work the same as edibles, or even if they should be consumed instead of other alternative cannabis administration methods. This, of course, greatly depends on the medical condition that should be treated.

I’ll break down this complex subject matter into a dozen stand-alone subsections. That way you’ll more easily get the complete picture of what THC pills are.

Here we go.

SkipTheDishes for cannabis: Pineapple Express Delivery expands in Saskatchewan.

In many parts of the province, cannabis users no longer need to walk in to a store for fast access to their favourite retailer’s products as same-day cannabis delivery service Pineapple Express Delivery rapidly expands across Saskatchewan.

Similar to the popular food delivery service SkipTheDishes, Pineapple Express Delivery plays the middleman between the retailer and the customer.

“We pick up the product at the retailer or licensed producer and then we deliver it to the customer on the same day that they pay for it,” said Madelaine Higgins, the Ontario-based company’s director of customer experience.

“There’s some times that we’re even faster than your pizza guy.”

Virginia buys new tests to distinguish marijuana from CBD

Virginia law enforcement could soon have another tool to help distinguish marijuana from CBD, a move that comes after a News4 I-Team investigation found flaws with commonly used drug field tests.

On Wednesday, the commonwealth’s top forensic scientist recommended police officers incorporate a new drug field test, developed by Swiss police, that turns distinct colors when a material contains more marijuana than its hemp cousin, CBD.

Speaking at a board meeting, Linda Jackson said her office ran extensive validation tests on the Swiss kits and recommends police officers use them in tandem with the former kits.

Expectation that more cannabis-impaired driving would follow legalization fails to materialize

When recreational cannabis was legalized last fall, the move brought with it plenty of trepidation around how the change might influence daily life, especially around the subject of impaired driving.

In fact, an online survey around that time showed the issue was definitely on the minds of people who were concerned that the legal framework could result in more people driving under the influence of cannabis. The poll was completed by 1,517 Canadian drivers from Aug. 10 to 15, 2018, using Leger’s online panel.

Regulation of cannabis in Italy: use in food and cosmetics

In Italy, the cultivation and the industrial use of hemp has a long tradition and recent changes in the law have led to a revival. While a law enacted in 2016 promotes the cultivation of hemp as a means to preserve biodiversity and to reduce the environmental impact in agriculture, hemp-derived products for human consumption are still subject to restrictions. A recent judgment of the Italian Supreme Court, delivered in joint session, has the last word on the supposedly legal cannabis.
