Hemp Batteries are Reportedly Stronger Than Graphene

It’s a well-known fact that hemp is an incredibly versatile plant, one that can be smoked, eaten, and processed into a seemingly endless number of different products ranging from topicals to plastic.

Topping the list of innovative new hemp creations is a high-performance energy storage device which scientists say can perform better than graphene and lithium. So essentially, hemp batteries. According to the research team, this technology can be used to power electric cars, power tools, and many other items.

New film reveals dark side to Canada's cannabis research history

In 1972, 20 women were placed in two groups in isolation in a downtown hospital. Ten of the participants were instructed to smoke cannabis every night over the course of 98 days, with increasing THC potency over time. The other 10 study participants remained sober. All were given tasks to focus on during the day — like making braided macrame belts and wall hangings —while researchers observed their behaviour. The goal of the Ontario government-funded study, dubbed Project Venus, was to find out if cannabis affected productivity.

3 Reasons Why Cannabis Is A Powerful Superfood

Numerous researchers and physicians have labeled cannabis a superfood, worthy of incorporation into your diet in some way or another. Here’s why.

Did you know that we’re supposed to get 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables every day? This equates to roughly two cups of fruit and 2.5 cups of vegetables. Although this is the recommended amount of fruit and veggies we should eat according to the USDA (United States Dietary Association), most of the American population doesn’t come close to meeting these guidelines.

Cannabis can disrupt anxiety superhighway in the brain of mice, researchers find

Researchers may be closing in on exactly why cannabis is so good at countering anxiety.

A new study, published in the journal Neuron, explains that there is an anxiety generating superhighway in the brain that connects the amygdala, the brain’s emotional centre, with the prefrontal cortex, where decision making and impulse control are managed.

The more stressful the situation a person finds themselves in, the more firmly these two areas of the brain connect, quickly elevating anxiety.

How To Redesign Your Indoor Grow For Sustainability

For many cannabis cultivators, the strongest impetus to redesign their indoor facility is to ensure sustainability and reduce their carbon footprint. And for good reason: Growing cannabis indoors can be an energy-intensive endeavor and bad for the environment. Cultivating a single crop from seed to harvest is accompanied by literal tons of carbon emissions -- not to mention high energy costs.

But before jumping into a project like this, you should be aware that designing a grow facility can be a complex process that shouldn’t be rushed. Many small yet critical details need to be considered otherwise you may be on the path to serious complications down the road.

One of the most advanced tests for cannabis impairment is being developed in Toronto

There’s an old problem for law enforcement when it comes to cannabis, and that is trying to prove impairment definitively. A simple blood or breath test just doesn’t work like it does with alcohol. The problem is now being tackled with very new technology, including one of the most advanced driving simulators in the world — in downtown Toronto.

Tracy Milner is a former occupational therapist and co-founder and CEO of BrainFX, an Ontario-based company. It has developed a proprietary, tablet-based cognitive testing system, often used on patients with neurological problems to assess brain function and aid in rehabilitation. Milner realized the technology’s potential beyond health issues.

Manitoba gobbles up all the legal edibles in sight, but analysts wary of future of new products

Edibles are flying off the shelves in Winnipeg, but analysts warn that it’s too early to tell whether the tasty new treats will prove filling or leave a bad taste in the mouth.

Cannabis-infused edibles, extracts, beverages and topicals became available in the province — and most of the country — on Dec. 17, although they have been hard to come by since then.

“We have been kind of cyclically selling out of these products,” John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9 cannabis stores, told CBC. “Anecdotally, I mean, it was a very positive reception.”
