Scientists have found a way to get rid of compounds that deposit on surfaces from third hand cannabis smoke

Although there’s nothing quite like the stale smell that remains after smoking tobacco, weed smoke also deposits compounds on surfaces that new research suggests can be reduced by ozone, which is found in both indoor and outdoor air.

Plenty is known about second- and third-hand smoke (THS) — which are reactive chemicals that remain in the air or are deposited on surfaces like walls, windows, clothing and upholstery, respectively — from tobacco. The same cannot be said for cannabis smoke, which is less studied and chemically distinct from tobacco smoke.

The Long Road to Researching Cannabis

Is cannabis safe for pregnant women to use?

Is there a danger to secondhand cannabis smoke?

Does cannabis use clash with other medications?

All of these are fairly straightforward questions which should be straightforward to study, but not in the nascent grey industry that is legal cannabis.

Scientifically speaking, we know more about the effects of cow flatulence on the atmosphere than the effects of cannabis on the human body.

If the cannabis industry is to ever be taken seriously on the international stage, there’s a desperate need for research from respected scientists and doctors and less anecdotal input from Jeff the Budtender.

Cannabis Beverages Offer A Trendy Alternative To Alcohol

With the holiday season already upon us, savvy hosts are busy preparing to celebrate with friends and family, whether the event is a planned family gathering or an impromptu party with friends. And while the challenges 2020 has thrown at us will mean things aren’t the way they usually are, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Consider beverages, for example. For millennia, the go-to thirst quencher for festivities in many cultures has been alcohol. And while a good cocktail can be an effective social lubricant and leave you feeling no pain, it can also fuel bitter arguments and tons of bullshit that nobody wants to deal with.

Winnipeg company develops 'D-Pod', cannabis inspired tech that can decontaminate medical supplies, personal protective equipment

Delta 9 Cannabis has filed patents in Canada and the U.S. for decontamination equipment that could be used in the fight against COVID-19. 

Branded as ‘decontamination pods’, or ‘D-pods,’ the company has retrofitted shipping containers with heat and ultraviolet light technologies. Once medical equipment is placed inside the pod, the combination of light and heat kills the virus.

John Arbuthnot, the CEO of Delta 9, said the technology could be a “game changer” and allow hospitals and care-facilities to decontaminate large amounts of PPE and other equipment in two-hour cycles, freeing up inventories and potentially preventing exposure to the virus.

Is there such a thing as a hemp car?

Hemp is touted as a potential green solution for everything from building materials to plastics — and that's precisely where they have value in the automotive sector. A car entirely made from hemp would save a lot of non-renewable materials from their inevitable fate in the junkyard.

Does Weed Really Mess With Your Memory?

Marijuana makes you dumb. At least according to the tired trope surrounding its use. Back in the day, stoners were considered slackers and anyone who smoked weed was on a one-way ticket to Loserville.

Today, many of those stigmas have fallen away. But some still linger in the popular consciousness, like the perception that every hit on a joint results in a lower IQ. But does smoking marijuana actually make you stupid?

The Difference Between CBD And THC

You’re probably familiar with the words CBD and THC, but do you know what they are and how they can affect your health? Cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two compounds found in members of the cannabis plant genus. They’re just two of many compounds called cannabinoids found in the plant.

While they both come from the same plant, they have vastly different effects and benefits. Knowing the differences between the two and learning as much as possible about the two compounds prior to use can help you see the potential health benefits and risks of each. Start by knowing what they are, followed by their risks, side effects and potential healthy uses.
