How Are Industry Leaders Continuing to Innovate During Covid-19?

For the cultivator looking to achieve the highest efficiency, most consistent yields, and most predictable revenue results, this year has been a real challenge to say the least.

Another interesting, and sometimes confusing, point about this compound is how many variations of it exist.

Most people know that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the dominant compound found in marijuana, and also the one that holds the plant’s psychoactive properties.

Barriers to Studying Marijuana: Q&A with Dr. Thorsten Rudroff

“We need long-term studies!

What is riskier? Study looks at vaping THC versus smoking nicotine

A new study suggests that vaping THC might be worse than smoking and vaping nicotine.

Conducted by the University of Michigan and published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, the study examined the association between respiratory symptoms in adolescents who were current users of cigarettes, e-cigarettes and/or cannabis and who used vapes with THC and/or nicotine oil.

Employing survey results, researchers found that when vaping cannabis, adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 had a greater chance of sustaining lung injury through dry coughs, wheezing and other symptoms that had an effect in their speech, sleep and exercise. The extent and duration of these symptoms are unknown.
