Apple Changes Cannabis App Policy – Will Google Follow?

Apps on phones and other devices play a huge role in most of our daily lives. Some apps are purely for entertainment, such as mind numbing video games.

Other apps play a much more important role, such as apps that are dedicated to tracking exercise activity or other health-related matters.

In the cannabis world apps come in many forms, however, access to those apps can often be tricky. 

Historically, major app providers like Google and Apple have been unkind to cannabis apps, often preventing them from being listed or taking them down shortly after initial listing.

Why Does Marijuana Have Different Colors?

Once you start to get involved with marijuana, you start to learn that there’s much more to the plant than smoking it and getting high. Experienced users know what they like and know how to get different results with the plant, depending on different factors like chosen strain, terpenes and knowing what works with their bodies.

What No One Tells You About Hemp Bioplastics

One of the most significant dangers to our wildlife, environment, and global climate is something nearly every person on Earth uses every single day: plastic (single-use plastic in particular).

It is devastating oceans and waterways, covering land and beaches, and filling landfills at a staggering rate.

This is not a problem we will be able to outrun.

Thankfully, there are cannabis companies across the globe dedicated to developing hemp-based solutions to our plastic problem.

Scientists are using hemp to create biodegradable plastics, called bioplastics, that are harmless to the environment and degrade in just a fraction of the time of standard single-use plastic.

Under its new policy, Apple created leeway that allows “licensed and otherwise legal cannabis dispensaries” from working with Apple. Companies must also be geofenced to qualify for store listing.

Based on what we know about other cannabis compounds, it’s safe to assume that CBL can be used in the treatment of many different medical conditions, but which ones would benefit most from it remain to be addressed.
