The discovery of new and improved cannabinoids means that our knowledge of cannabis’s medicinal capabilities is expanding.

Just when we thought we were learning more about cannabis and its compounds, the strongest cannabinoid yet steps into the spotlight. THCP, recently discovered by a group of Italian scientists, is said to be 30 times stronger than THC, expanding on cannabis’s medicinal potential.

The Keys to Cannabis Retail in an Internet-Driven World

The world of retail is changing rapidly. In the past couple of decades, the term “going shopping” alone has changed. It can now mean everything from driving to a shopping center to scrolling through Amazon to exploring the Facebook Marketplace. The dawn of online shopping has been an incredible strain on the world of retail, with malls becoming ghost towns and giant shops relegated to serving as Halloween stores once a year. The statistics back this up as well, with MSNBC reporting in April 2019 that online U.S. retail sales have eclipsed that of general retail for the very first time.

Cannabinoids and Inflammation: What Does the Current Research Say?

Is inflammation a cause for concern? Perhaps not in the short run, but…

Whenever we get infected, injured, or in other words, whenever there is a problem inside or on the body, our immune system sends hordes of white blood cells to protect the area, remove any harmful pathogens, and kick-start the healing process.

If the infection heals quickly, we’re OK. However, if the inflammation persists for a long time, the consequences can be devastating. Not only does it cause our immune function to go down, but chronic inflammation also accelerates the aging process.

The surprising way coronavirus affects the marijuana industry

Since its arrival in December, the coronavirus has infected more than 42,000 people and claimed more than 1,000 lives. Many travel plans and routes have been disrupted as well, with some cruise ships facing strict quarantines to diminish the coronavirus from spreading. To further prevent the disease outbreak, at least 24 Chinese provinces have shut down businesses and factories.

This move, while critical to world health, has had a substantial impact on global trade. That includes the cannabis industry, where marijuana vaporizer companies often rely on Chinese manufacturers to produce hardware. You might be surprised to learn that almost every component of vaporizers come from Chinese factories, with cannabis oil serving as the only American-made good in many vaping products.
