Mastering the art and science of cannabis through Canada’s first cannabis sommelier course

If one looks to industries like beer, wine or even coffee—each has its own exams and series of certifications to test one’s own sensory realms. Those who clear these high hurdles are called things like sommeliers, cicerone or Q-graders.

Neuroscience explains why cannabis may be key to fighting the opioid crisis

Canada currently finds itself at the intersection of two historic social phenomena with massive implications for public health.

First, after decades of restricting public access to marijuana, on Oct. 17, Canada became the first major industrial nation to fully legalize cannabis for both medicinal and recreational usage.

Second, we find ourselves in the throes of a worsening opioid addiction crisis that has already caused the deaths of thousands of Canadians, young and old.

Canadian tech companies look to cash in on cannabis with innovations and apps

One of John Lem’s first hints that the technology behind his DNA testing company Spartan Bioscience could be a hit with cannabis users came years ago when an executive asked him if genetics could have caused a bad reaction to pot.

The question intrigued Lem so much that he eventually applied Spartan’s technology to a new Toronto-based venture called Lobo Genetics. Through Lobo, he created a genetic testing device that fits in the palm of a hand and uses cells obtained through a cheek swab to measure a person’s ability to metabolize THC — the main psychoactive component in cannabis — and determine someone’s predisposition to short- and long-term side effects.

Ambitious vision for Terra Tech Corp

Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS: TRTC) – is a really exciting company that has its supporters and its detractors especially after the last quarterly report but nobody can dispute the incredible transformation that has taken place with Terra Tech over the last few years led by founder and CEO Derek Peterson. When TRTC first hit the OTCBB 5 years ago the Company had big plans but no revenues and no real business just like so many other over the counter cannabis stocks of the day. That is certainly not that case now with Terra Tech; last quarter aside Terra Tech has made something of itself.

Technology has changed the way we get high, forever

If you want to imagine the future of marijuana in the 2020s, picture a 3-D printer. 

Maybe it's in a kiosk at your local legal recreational dispensary; maybe, if you're a particular fan of greenery, it's in your home. Either way, it's pre-loaded with concentrated liquid forms of all  cannabinoids, the different kinds of molecules that make up marijuana. 

The machine has CBD for healing, CBN for sleepiness, THC for the giddy, giggly high; plus a ton of essential oils called terpenes, which generally provide every other subtle effect you've ever noticed with weed.
