Hemp could help sustain vitally important bee populations

Recent studies suggest that newly-legalized hemp may help a critically important species – bees.

Scientists have been warning about the consequences of dwindling bee populations for years as these pollinators are responsible for about 70% of all food crops.

And humans aren’t the only species that depends on the pollination provided by bees – a host of other animals depend on the plants pollinated by these creatures.

A surprising thing could close the loop in the green economy and make it more sustainable – its waste.

A rumor has it that no one managed to calculate precisely how much waste the industry is leaving behind.

New testing device said to be able to differentiate between hemp and high-THC cannabis

Cannabis tech company GemmaCert Ltd. has revealed a new product that it claims can test the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (aka THC, the intoxicating compound in the cannabis plant) in just minutes.

This, the company noted, would allow law enforcement and other agencies to quickly establish whether a crop qualifies as hemp, defined under U.S. federal rules as cannabis that contains less than 0.3 per cent THC. The Israel-based test makers said the product can detect THC content as low as 0.2 per cent.

Three Reasons To Adopt AI Automation Technology In Your Grow Operation

The beauty of cannabis cultivation is in its complexity. Small adjustments to the growing environment can mean big payoffs come harvest time. It's a space for calculated creativity in order to get ideal yields under specific growing conditions.
