Delta 8 Is Getting A Lot Of Attention - Not All Of It Is Good

If you feel like you’ve been catching a lot of Delta-8 THC content in the media lately, those aren’t just your social media apps hacking your brain. Hemp-derived Delta-8 THC is having a big moment in 2021 in terms of popularity and, most recently, in terms of concerns over legality, safety, and accuracy. This hot new cannabinoid has been branded as “legal marijuana” as the main intoxicating compound in cannabis but one most commonly derived from hemp for commercial use. Social listening data reveals that conversations around Delta-8 grew by a whopping 163% from December 2020 to April 2021, but all is not rosy for this latest trend in cannabis or for companies jumping into production to respond to the surging interest.

How technology can change the face of the cannabis industry

It takes the average laptop computer about a billionth of a second to add two numbers together. That’s far less time than it takes to blink your eyes or to take a sip of coffee. In fact, it’s fair to say that there are few activities that computers can’t do faster than people. Unfortunately, machines can only do as much as they are asked to.

Machines are faster than ever, but it can take humans years to realize that a particular question needs to be asked in the first place — this is the central paradox of computing today.

Why Is Growing Pot So Energy-Intensive?

In his 2022 budget proposal, President Joe Biden included a rider first introduced by Republican Maryland Rep. Andy Harris that would block D.C.’s ability to legalize and tax recreational marijuana, even after the city’s residents voted to legalize possession back in 2014. While the budget provision is plainly at odds with Biden’s support of D.C.

What Is Delta-8-THC?

Most of us are old enough to remember the days when – if you wanted to get high – you had to “know a guy.” Or, at the very least, you had to “know a guy who knows a guy.”

Delta-8-THC: Is It Really That Different From Delta-9?

So you’ve finished work, and you’re really, really thirsty.
You walk into a nearby bar and ask if they have any imported beer.
“Sure,” the bartender says. “We have Heineken and Dos Equis.”
A Heineken sounds like it would really hit the spot. “Great,” you say. “Let me have a Heineken.”

The bartender disappears for a minute, plops a glass on the bar, and pours your beer from an open green bottle.  You take a long, deep swig, and…….wait!

“That’s not Heineken,” you say.
“Sure it is!” says the bartender. “It’s brand new! Heineken 0.0…alcohol-free!”
“Arrrrrgh,” you say.

There’s nothing wrong with alcohol-free beer. In fact, it can be the right choice if you have to drive home. But it’s best to know in advance what you’re getting.
