What Are Hemp Buds?

For more than 80 years, the hemp plant was prohibited and conflated with its THC-rich cousin. Though they are both from the Cannabaceae family, hemp and marijuana were historically used for very different things. Industrial hemp is non-intoxicating, has a long history with humans and has been used for millennia for textiles, paper, food and much more. Cannabis also has a long relationship with humans and is used for less hands-on applications such as medicine, ritual, and enjoyment.

What Are Delta-8 THC Gummies?

Delta-8 THC is taking the country by storm. The often-overlooked cannabinoid is extracted from the hemp plant. While it has similar effects to Delta 9, which is the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, Delta-8 THC is not federally illegal. 

This has enabled a green rush of companies to release hemp products containing Delta-8 THC in states that have otherwise outlawed cannabis. The Delta-8 offerings come in many factors, but a recent google trends search indicated that the search terms "Delta-8 gummies" are a particularly hot item. 

Green Entrepreneur spoke to Kayla Croft, co-founder of Goodekind, a woman and minority-owned hemp social enterprise focused on minor cannabinoids.

The “I will take what I can get” strains were the most popular because, well, that was all that was available.

Zoom forward to today, and cannabis is legally available in several markets for medical and/or adult-use purposes, and the options are staggering.

Largest Human Trial To Date Will Review Safety Of Full Spectrum Hemp Products

As is the case in the United States, Europe lacks sufficiently reliable scientific data to support the safety of products infused with full spectrum hemp extract.

In January 2019, the European Union (EU) reclassified extracts of cannabis sativa L. and derived products containing cannabinoids, including CBD, as “Novel Food” under the EU Novel Food Catalogue. The reclassification was based on the lack of demonstrated history of human consumption of these extracts and of any product to which they might be added.

Optimizing Systems for Cannabis Greenhouses

All cannabis greenhouses take advantage of sunlight for plant growth, but building construction and climate control strategies can vary so much that some growers say that “if you visit one greenhouse, you have visited one greenhouse.” To optimize building systems for peak productivity, consider managing infiltration through building envelopes so cannabis can be sun-grown while photosynthesis can be optimized with active climate controls.

How Are Cannabis-infused Beverages Doing In the Market?

Sales of cannabis-infused beverages were up 40 percent last year, as companies sought to capitalize on new marijuana consumers seeking a familiar form of consumption and those looking for an alternative to alcoholic drinks. Marijuana beverage companies, for example, have been cashing in on health-related trends such as Dry January, when alcohol drinkers abstain for the month and look for alternative ways to relax.

“People are very mindful of the impact of alcohol on their health and their looks,” said Tracey Mason, co-founder and CEO of cannabis-infused, alcohol-free wine company House of Saka, based in California’s famed Napa Valley winemaking region.
