Is Hemp Cannabis? A recent investigation attempts to clarify the confusion

delta 8

Last week, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) settled and closed a nearly yearlong investigation into a cannabis producer that extracted THC from hemp.

The investigation is the latest example of the struggle for regulators to determine what is cannabis and what isn't, and by extension what is legal and what's not.

Unicorn Brands of Raymond, Washington, violated rules governing license, extraction and THC tracing, according to notices issued by the LCB in October 2021. Another charge alleged criminality, but last week the LCB dropped the criminal conduct charge, and Unicorn Brands admitted to the remaining three charges.

Medical Marijuana could help end the opioid crisis, study says

AVALON - A new report out of Florida argues medical marijuana can contribute mightily to ending the U.S. opioid crisis.

Researchers believe medicinal cannabis can serve as a viable pain management alternative to opioids. After surveying thousands of people, study authors report patients using medical marijuana were in less pain and functioned better both physically and socially.

Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, the study also notes the majority of those who took oxycodone, codeine, or another opioid for pain were able to stop or reduce their opioid use by switching to medical cannabis.

Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10: How do they tie into the Cannabis debate?

cbd

NASHVILLE - LabCanna sells several THC products in Nashville, like Delta-8, Delta-9 and Delta-10.

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a substance derived from the cannabis plant that primarily attributes to the “high” feeling when consumed in a product.

Delta-9 THC is the cannabinoid most associated with cannabis while Delta-8 and Delta-10 are essentially the less-potent cousins of Delta-9.

“Delta-8, a little bit less, is about 70% as potent as Delta-9,” LabCanna CEO Derek Besenius said. “Then Delta-10 leans more toward the energy, creative, focus side of things.”

CBN: A Cannabinoid for sleep and more

sleep

CBN has been shown to have some overlapping effects with CBD, such as anti-inflammatory activity. But using CBN particularly for sleep appears frequently in literature.

Scientists have confirmed the existence of over one hundred cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa, including cannabinol or CBN. What is CBN?

While tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the best studied cannabinoid, interest in the endocannabinoid system has spurred research into lesser-known cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidivarin (CBDV), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), and cannabinol (CBN).

In this article, we’ll dive into using CBN for sleep, explore if the cannabinoid CBN has other health benefits, and look at which cannabis products have CBN.

CBD gummies or hemp gummies: which is better for sleep?

sleep

The popularity of alternative sources of medicine for sleep is rapidly increasing.

Among the most sought-after sources of supplemental medicine are CBD gummies and hemp gummies. The hemp-derived plant products have incredible benefits. They work naturally to regulate hormonal function and provide the body with nutritional benefits.

But even though both products come from the same plants, hemp and CBD gummies are completely unique. They have different phytochemical profiles and, as a result, produce different health effects. But which one is better for sleep, hemp gummies or CBD gummies?

How to find the best CBD concentration for you

gummy

You’ve heard about CBD and maybe you’ve even tried it. But you may have been using the wrong CBD concentration.

If you’ve tried CBD oil tinctures or gummies a few times in the past and never really noticed a difference or saw any of the benefits you’d been hearing about, you probably weren’t using the right concentration.

Just like any other supplement, some people need more or less than others. But when you fall into the “more” category, it can feel frustrating when your wellness routine produces the same benefits as others, but costs far more. And you’re right – it shouldn’t.

Is Dark CBD the newest trend in Cannabis products?

There’s a new cannabis extraction method called dark CBD. This method was created to add more diversity to the already diverse cannabis market.

Since the 2018 Farm Bill Act, hemp has thrived, increasing demand for cannabidiol and other hemp-derived cannabinoids. Products, including tinctures, edibles, vape supplies, and tablets, are easily accessible. But not every product is made equally. Additionally, the isolation or extraction processes for some CBD products cause part of their potency to be lost.

The dark CBD extraction adds vitamins, flavonoids, and other phytonutrients that are naturally present in hemp but are lost during the refining process. It is an unprocessed variation of the usual extractions.

How many milligrams of THC is too much?

It’s likely a solid strategy to know how much weed is too much and how to avoid getting to that point in the first place.

It might be highly improbable, some say impossible, to fatally overdose on weed, but that doesn’t mean a person can’t have too much. Here’s how to avoid that.

Although the phrase “having too much of a good thing” is heard all the time, sometimes it’s a lesson that just doesn’t stick. This saying can be painfully true when it comes to marijuana consumption.

What starts off as a delicious edible and relaxing high can potentially lead to an overwhelming burst of anxiety, paranoia and heart pounding. This is where the “too much” part comes into play.
