GMO Strain (GMO Cookies)
(Cannabis, CBD, Genetics, Growers, Growing, Strains, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation) Many cannabis strains are named after their flavor, and some are named after their effects. The indica dominant GMO cannabis strain is named after its smell. Short for “Garlic Mushroom and Onions,” it doesn’t sound like this strain would be so well-loved. However, its breeders knew what they were doing when they created this potent and flavorful strain.

Will These Marijuana Stocks Continue To Go Up In The Market?
(Canada, Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Growers, IIPR, Innovative Industrial Properties, Investments, Leases, Production, Products, Stocks, Vertically Integrated, VFF, Village Farms, Village Farms International, Cultivation) As of midday on April 2nd, marijuana stocks have so far had quite a rally. Top companies in the industry such as Tilray have shot up by as much as 12% during the day, before climbing back to a respectable 2% gain. Many of the deductions being made about the cannabis industry have been on a short term basis. This is because it is extremely difficult to tell where the market will be in the next few months, let alone 2 weeks from now. [Read More] Can These Ancillary Pot Stocks Keep Up With the Rest?

Who Lobbied on Cannabis in New York During the Latest Legalization Push?

New York has recorded by far the highest numbers of positive tests and deaths in the country. But before the spread of coronavirus, New York was on track to legalize, and perhaps lead the entire northeast in a coordinated approach with neighboring states like Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Cuomo, who tried to legalize through the budget in 2019, too, said this January when he announced his legislative priorities during his budget address that he believes the budget process is “the opportunity, frankly, to make some tough decisions and work through tough issues that without the budget can often languish.” In the early months of 2020, a flurry of entities filed disclosures that indicated they were lobbying on cannabis issues. Some focused on lawmakers,...

2 Marijuana Stocks To Watch: Is Investing Long Term The Best Option?
(California, Canada, Cannabis, Cresco Labs, CRLBF, Grower, Growers, Investing, Investments, Investors, OGRMF, OrganiGram Inc, Stocks, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The short term in the cannabis industry is arguably a very difficult time frame for investors. In the past three weeks, we have seen prices shoot down by more than 40% for some of the largest marijuana stocks in the industry. This, however, should not dissuade investors as it appears to be the short term result of the coronavirus. One of the key things to note about investing in cannabis is that the market is subject to see extreme growth in the next few years. Some estimates have shown that the cannabis market could reach as high as $40-70 billion within the next decade. [Read More] Marijuana Stocks To Watch: What’s Up With This Canadian Company?

We’ll continue to update as regulators announce new policies. So far, during the COVID-19 pandemic, cannabis sales are through the roof as consumers stock up in anticipation of supply chain disruption. But, despite this upswing, cannabis companies are bracing for impact. As Cannabis Wire reported this week, a dilemma has hit the nascent industry: to close or not to close? Already, Canopy Growth chose to close nearly two dozen shops in Canada, and we’re tracking how other companies are reacting. But what happens in the case of forced closures? Cannabis regulators will have to weigh tough decisions in the coming days as businesses, from gyms to bowling alleys to bars, are asked to close as part of broader efforts to contain the spread of the virus. (While Canadian consumers can legally order cannabis online, should closures occur, changes are taking place north of the border. On...

Cannabis Shortages Spur New Interest in Growing at Home
(Cannabis, CBD, Growers, Growing, Illinois, Law, Legalization, LKEN, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Products, Recreational, United States, Lights, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered businesses and sent people hunkering down behind closed doors from coast to coast. In addition to stocking up on canned and dry goods, consumers are worried about maintaining cannabis supply. The outbreak was having an impact on the North American cannabis industry weeks before it actually reached the continent’s shores. But with the imposition of “shelter-in-place” orders, tokers started to worry about where their next batch of bud would be coming from. On March 16, when six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area issued such orders, there was an immediate run on dispensaries . Spared was Alameda County, where cannabis shops were deemed to be an “essential” service. Facing a public outcry, authorities in San Francisco just one day later decided to follow Alameda’s lead, and lifted the order for dispensaries to close . On March 20, when a statewide lockdown was declared, dispensaries were excluded as an essential service. Similar scenes in Denver...

Can I Give CBD to my Dog?
(Alcohol, Cannabis, CBD, CBN, Edibles, Food, Growers, Hemp, Hemp Products, Italy, Law, Nutraceuticals, Oils, Pets, Products, Research, Seed Oil, THC, Cultivation) Can I give CBD to my dog? The answer is yes, but proceed with caution. The limited scientific evidence available on CBD for other animals suggests that Cannabidiol may be beneficial for dogs in treating symptoms of anxiety or pain. But, many dog owners have questions around which cannabinoids and terpenes to avoid, proper dosing, and methods of administration. Here’s what every pet owner should consider about research into, “Can I give CBD to my Dog?” 1) THC is Dangerous for Dogs so no Sharing Bud Dogs getting their paws on cannabis is a much more common occurrence than many might think. When owners carelessly leave their stash lying around, dogs are inclined to stick their nose in and chew it down. As a result, many owners unintentionally give their pets toxic doses of THC. People frequently wonder how there can even be THC in raw bud. This is due to the nature of degradation of cannabis over time. At all points in time, exposure to elements, like heat and light, will cause THCa to...

Marijuana Legalization Left Out Of New York Budget, According To Draft Summary Document
(Arizona, California, Cannabis, Events, Extraction, Growers, Legalization, Management, Medical Marijuana, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Oregon, United States, Washington, Cultivation, Funding) The New York legislature seems poised to eliminate a proposal to legalize marijuana through the budget this year, according to an unverified document outlining the policies included in the spending legislation currently under final negotiations ahead of a vote this week. The draft budget report, which was shared with Marijuana Moment, includes a line stating that the “Adopted Budget omits the Executive proposal to legalize adult use cannabis.” It also “eliminates $34.31 million in funding for the Office for Cannabis Management,” a government body that would have been responsible for regulating the marijuana market. The apparent exclusion of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) legalization proposal, while disappointing to reform advocates, is not entirely surprising in the context of the coronavirus outbreak. While the governor repeatedly stressed that the policy change should be enacted through the budget , he and top lawmakers have tried to temper expectations in recent weeks as legislative...

Cannabis, Coronavirus and Federal Disaster Assistance
(Cannabis, Distribution, Growers, Hemp, Law, Loans, Products, Testing, Cultivation, Funding, Security) Coronavirus has been great for cannabis sales . In most states with approved cannabis programs, both medical and adult use marijuana sales have been designated “ essential services ” by state and local governments. With this support, the supply chain has weathered the COVID-19 pandemic better than many industries. Still, the pandemic continues unabated and cannabis businesses are far from secure. Over the past month, the federal government has attempted to throttle the sputtering economy with varying forms of stimulus. Some of the efforts have been undertaken by the Federal Reserve (slashing the federal funds rate; debt purchase commitments) and some by the Internal Revenue Service (pushing out deadlines). But Congress and the President have taken matters further. In this post, I’ll summarize the three “phases” of Congressional stimulus, and their implications for cannabis businesses.

Doctor Sues the DEA Over a “Secret Law" Blocking Cannabis Research
(Arizona, Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Growers, Growing, Law, Manufacture, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, Research, Texas, United States, Cultivation) Attorneys filed suit last week against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) over an alleged “secret law” that has stalled legitimate medical marijuana research in the US for the past three years. The lawsuit, dated March 25, came from Yetter Coleman, LLP , a Texas-based law firm that represents the Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI). Based in Arizona, SRI is led by Dr. Sue Sisley, a licensed physician who has been investigating medical marijuana as a treatment for cancer and PTSD. Last year, she filed suit against the DEA after the agency failed to review her application for a third-party marijuana growing license under the Obama-era Growers Program. According to the complaint, under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) issued its own interpretation of the UN Single Convention treaty and the US Controlled Substances Act that required the DEA to draft new rules for the Growers Program.

Glass House Farms Gives Back to Local Santa Barbara Community Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
(Bar, California, Cannabis, China, Compliance, Consulting, Food, Growers, Packaging, Pesticide, United States, Vertically Integrated, Lights, Cultivation) Like many other states, California has deemed the cannabis industry an “essential” business that can remain operational during the state’s stay at home order aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19. For Graham Farrar, the founder and CEO of Glass House Farms , a vertically integrated cannabis operator based in Santa Barbara, Calif., this means cannabis businesses must step up to help those in need during this difficult and uncertain time.“This is a time when we need everybody,” he told Cannabis Business Times. “If you’ve got a shovel, you need to get digging.”The way Farrar sees it, the industry gets to be the light in an otherwise bleak time, and this is a great opportunity for cannabis businesses to shatter old stereotypes and stigmas while giving back.“Sometimes you need help—and there have been a lot of people who have helped us along the way—and sometimes you get to be the helper,” he said. “We’re happy to return the favor to society and show how we can help out.”Photo courtesy...

California: REINING IN CANNABIS TAX SCOFFLAWS
(Bar, California, Cannabis, Food, Grower, Growers, Products, Regulations, United States, Cultivation) Melinda Burns writes for “edhat” Santa Barbara (CA) Some cannabis operators in Santa Barbara County still don’t pay taxes, but there are signs that the county is closing in on them. Of 106 licensed cannabis growers and processors in county unincorporated areas, 15 failed to report their gross revenues during the most recent quarter, from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, according to a recent update for the county Board of Supervisors. That’s down from 22 tax scofflaws in the previous quarter. The county has put growers on notice that it will withdraw its “letter of authorization” for cannabis state business licenses if they fail to pay county taxes, said Assistant County Executive Officer Barney Melekian. “The word went out that we were paying attention to that,” he said, adding that one grower was forced to surrender his state license and shut down last month; two others promptly paid up, and a fourth has been summoned to a county administrative hearing.

Cannabis Farmers Hope AB-1948 Leads to Tax Relief
(California, Cannabis, CNAB, Growers, United Cannabis Corporation, United States, Cultivation) SF Blog writes, “California’s craft growers say that playing by the rules is forcing them out of business.” Here’s the introduction to the report The subject of taxes may seem inherently boring to some, but for Tsong and Wentzel, changing the laws dictating the cut California takes from legalized cannabis may be the difference between whether Beija Flor stays in business or not. At the center of the issue is what’s known as a cultivation tax, which essentially requires cannabis farmers in California to pay based on the dry weight of what they grow before it’s sold. Thus, instead of paying proportionally to sales, farms like Beija Flor must pay this tax for all the flower and leaves they grow regardless of what happens next. According to Tsong, this can amount to 15-20 percent of the farm’s total revenue — revenue they won’t even have until the product is sold. That’s in addition to the excise tax (calculated at 15 percent of the average market price when purchased at retail), which...

By Any Other Name
(California, Cannabis, Fertilizer, Genetics, Growers, Growing, Medical Marijuana, Oregon, Recreational, Regulations, Strains, Testing, United States, Soil, Cultivation) It takes a lot of chutzpah to claim a place. Alex Schutz knew that he was treading on hallowed ground when he named his cannabis business after Williams, a small town in Southern Oregon just over the border from California’s northernmost Siskiyou County. Williams has a long legacy of cannabis cultivation, much like its Emerald Triangle neighbors to the south, with a solid population of territorial growers who could contest such a name. But Schutz says he’s been in Williams for years, he’s growing cannabis genetics from a family who’d been in the town since the ’80s and he’s using natural inputs from the land itself, so why not? “It’s a bold feeling to be claiming the Williams name and putting it first,” Schutz says. “But as the cannabis industry started to take hold in Oregon and we started to see what the consumers were buying and what they liked, we saw they were gravitating towards name brands that were trending and I didn’t have any — and I still don’t mess with them. What I grow...

Scientists Sue DEA Over Alleged ‘Secret’ Document That Delayed Marijuana Research Expansion
(Arizona, Cannabis, Compliance, Distribution, Facilities, Growers, Hemp, Law, Manufacture, Manufacturing, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, Processing, Products, Research, United States, Cultivation) The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is finding itself in court over marijuana again after scientists filed a lawsuit against the agency, requesting “secret” documents that they allege DEA used to delay action on expanding cannabis research. The Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI) is behind the suit. It’s one of more than 30 organizations that have submitted applications to DEA to become licensed cannabis manufacturers for research purposes. Some background should be noted: In 2016, DEA announced it would expand marijuana research by approving additional growers beyond the sole source that has existed for half a century at the University of Mississippi. But after more than three years, applicants heard silence , and SRI filed an initial lawsuit alleging that the agency was deliberately holding up the process . A court mandated that it take steps to make good on its promise, and that case was dropped after DEA provided a status update . This month, DEA finally unveiled a revised...

Federal Agency Touts Hemp Progress While Refusing To Serve Marijuana Businesses
(Biodiesel, Cannabis, CBD, Clothing, Events, Growers, Hemp, Hemp, Inc., Legalization, Loans, Manufacturing, Medical Marijuana, OTC:HEMP, Pennsylvania, Products, Testing, United States, Virginia, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The federal Small Business Administration (SBA) is celebrating the potential of hemp and is urging federal regulators to address concerns from farmers before rules for the crop are finalized. At the same time, however, it is maintaining that it cannot service marijuana businesses due to ongoing federal prohibition. In a blog post published on Tuesday, SBA’s Office of Advocacy described the wide range of uses for hemp, including rope and CBD oil, and detailed the crop’s evolution from a federally controlled substance to an agricultural commodity that was legalized through the 2018 Farm Bill. “From rope to clothing, biodiesel to hempcrete, plant-based ingestible protein to CBD balm, the uses of hemp are far-reaching.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) now has jurisdiction over the plant, and it released an interim final rule last year outlining guidelines for a domestic hemp program . In the time since the crop’s legalization, SBA says it has “embarked on an ambitious and...

No-Till’s Next Battleground
(California, Cannabis, Fabric, Grower, Growers, Growing, Israel, Organic, Production, Strains, United States, Videos, Soil, Cultivation) Enclosed within a small garage in Walnut Creek, California, rows of cannabis plants appear to be sleeping in the darkness. Joseph Snow uses a small, green-hued light to show me the grow setup inside. The plants have barely entered their first blushes of flowering, but the room is positively perfumed with uplifting fresh botanical bursts of cannabis. When Snow pulls off the fan leaves from some of the strains — Mirage, Gelato, GoTime — to view the leaves outside in better light, he encourages me to inspect the vibrant green hues and differencing jagged edges and leaf shapes. The base of each sugary fan leaf is already coated in resin and it’s wafting off fresh terps. While modest in scale, this cannabis consultant’s grow has one thing about it that makes it very unique. Snow is cultivating indoor cannabis with a method of growing you’re far more likely to associate with an outdoor grow: no-till farming. Under the name Snowtill , he’s growing indoor cannabis in the same soil, year after...

Article – NORML: Cannabis Workers, Unemployment Insurance, and the Small Business Administration: What You Need to Know
(Banking, Cannabis, Distribution, Growers, Law, Loans, Products, Cultivation, Funding) There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting businesses around the world, and smaller businesses especially. That is why this week, NORML reached out to our numerous allies on Capitol Hill to ensure that any Unemployment Insurance aid packages considered by Congress provide relief to cannabis-industry personnel who have been or will be either furloughed from their jobs. “Given the tremendous amount of uncertainty in the broader economy, the hundreds of thousands of American workers who are employed by the state-legal marijuana industry must be respected and protected by the emergency actions being taken by elected officials,” said NORML Political Director Justin Strekal. WHY THIS CLARIFICATION IS IMPORTANT According to a recent report by Leafy.com , the state-licensed cannabis industry employs more than 240,000 American workers. To put that total in context, the state-authorized cannabis marketplace employs over four times the number of American workers as does...

Cannabis Industry Workers May Be at Risk of Respiratory Issues, New Study Says
(Cannabis, Facilities, Growers, Growing, Organic, Production, Research, United States, Washington, Cultivation, Related Industries) Cannabis industry workers may face an increased risk of being exposed to respiratory hazards , according to a new study conducted by the University of Washington. The study, led by Christopher Simpson, PhD, professor of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington, investigated two legal cannabis cultivation facilities in Washington State. One of these facilities is a 30,000-square-foot operation using traditional growing methods, and the other is a 20,000-square-foot grow-op using only organic methods. “Several prior studies indicate a significant potential for hazardous respiratory exposures in this industry, including mold, organic dust, and toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs),” the researchers wrote . “Our own recent work involving interviews with cannabis workers revealed that respiratory hazards were their major occupational health concern.” Simpson and his team recruited 31 of 45 employees working at the larger facility and 11 out of 20...

Is Pharmaceutical CBD More Effective Than Herb?
(Cannabis, CBD, Growers, GW Pharmaceuticals plc, Legalization, Research, Science, Self-Contained Growing Systems, United States, Washington, Washington DC, THC, Extracts, Pharmaceuticals, Cultivation) Many studies point to the unwanted side effects of pharmaceutical CBD but this one says it’s more effective. CBD offers much medicinal promise, be it pharmaceutical or artisanal. Free of dangerous side effects, its potent anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anxiolytic abilities make it the subject of much scientific inquiry. Further, financial experts expect the cannabis market to reach over seventy billion dollars by 2027. With so much money at stake, it’s little surprise that several competing industries are attempting to benefit from future projections. Big Pharma, who opt for isolated and refined extracts from the plant, are currently jostling for market position with growers and small producers who believe in the more holistic artisanal forms of cannabis. The Efficacy of Pharmaceutical CBD Approved by the FDA in 2018, Epidiolex is the first pharmaceutical CBD solution to receive approval. CBD still remains a schedule 1 substance in the U.S., but that only applies to those...

The Price of Advocacy
(California, Cannabis, Compliance, Development, Events, Fertilizers, Food, Grower, Growers, Growing, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Organic, Production, Regulations, Strains, Testing, United States, Soil, Cultivation) Nobody likes to hear “I told you so” ringing in their ears. But today, as California’s small cannabis farmers face increasing challenges in the legal industry, the sneering refrain practically echoes down the redwood canyons of the Emerald Triangle, its four cutting syllables carried in each morning with the fog. For Casey O’Neill, who has been one of the most public and outspoken advocates for a small-farm-friendly version of cannabis legalization since 2014, the “I told you so” carries a particular punch. He is a native son of Mendocino County, raised on a homestead north of Laytonville where he still lives, farming vegetables and cannabis on the land with his partner Amber and their family. He’s seen the harsh nature of the government. Law enforcement stormed his parents’ house before his third birthday over a few cannabis plants, and when he was older and working as a cannabis grower, he was swept up in a raid and served two months in county jail.

Cannabis Businesses Are Ineligible for Federal Coronavirus Relief
(Cannabis, Distribution, Growers, Hemp, Law, Loans, Products, United States, Washington, THC, Cultivation) The US Senate has just agreed on a 2 trillion dollar stimulus package to help boost the economy during the coronavirus quarantine, but as usual, state-legal cannabis businesses are being left out of the picture . On Monday, Greg Hubly, the owner of a small weed business in Washington State, asked the Small Business Association (SBA) whether cannabis companies would be eligible for federal relief packages. The Pacific NW chapter of the SBA responded that “with the exception of businesses that produce or sell hemp and hemp-derived products... marijuana-related businesses are not eligible for SBA-funded services.” Hubly was not surprised by the agency's response. Cannabis plants containing more than 0.3 percent THC are still classified as marijuana, a Schedule I drug , and federal law prohibits any business that handles a controlled substance from receiving any sort of federal aid. Hemp, on the other hand, was made federally legal by the 2018 Farm Bill , and hemp businesses are therefore...

Clean Grow Still Failing? Check for Endophytic Mold
(Cannabis, Clothing, Facilities, Genetics, Grow Facilities, Growers, Growing, Hemp, Management, Production, Products, Research, Science, Testing, Cultivation) The journal Frontiers in Plant Science recently shared an important article from researchers at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, highlighting the “Pathogens and Molds Affecting Production and Quality of Cannabis Sativa.” As a chemist focused on the science of preventing and mitigating mold in greenhouse and indoor cannabis grow facilities, this piece was fascinating to me. Like many others, it details and explains prevalent mold like Penicillium, Cladosporium and Aspergillus – things I see in grows every day. But wait, there’s more fungi The research and resulting article also brought up another type of fungi – endophytic mold. Endophytic mold usually lives symbiotically with plants, or is at least beneficial for both plant and fungi. But not always. In the past, the industry has believed that damaging mold spores were found on the outside of the flower. When moved, that flower would release the spores and send them flying – often creating massive cross-contamination...

What Are the Most Colorful Weed Strains and How Do They Get Their Hues?
(California, Canada, Cannabis, Genetics, Growers, Growing, Production, Research, Science, Strains, United States, THC, Cultivation) For cannabis connoisseurs, the intoxicating effects of THC are only one aspect of the overall marijuana experience. Past the high, there’s the scent, the taste, the bud structure, and of course, the colors. From vibrant green buds and strains that are undeniably “purp,” to flower varietals with bright red and orange hairs, cannabis cultivars can embody a whole medley of hues and pigments. So what gives weed its diverse array of visual tones , and what strains should you seek out when hoping for that perfect purple nug? We’ve got you covered. How Does Weed Get Its Color? Like most plants in nature, cannabis is packed full of chlorophyll , or a chemical compound that uses the sun to generate energy for plants. And so the same thing that makes your grassy lawn sparkle is also what turns your Sour Diesel green. But what about strains that end up with purple, red, pink, or even black hues? For those, we need to dive even deeper into plant science. The colorful culprits are anthocyanins , a...

Ever Hopeful! $1.2M expansion proposed for Auburn cannabis business park
(Cannabis, Consultants, Development, Greenhouses, Growers, Maine, Manufacturing, Medical Marijuana, United States, Cultivation) The project would include 14 new buildings, most of them greenhouses. Reports the Sun Journal. Developers behind a cannabis business park off Minot Avenue with four greenhouses now and a retail shop underway have proposed a new $1.2 million project for 14 additional buildings. Mystique Way LLC’s application is pending with the Planning Board, which meets next month. Most of the buildings would be greenhouses and bring the total development up to 154,640-square feet. The park would employ about 40 people in total. Sean O’Brien, one of four partners behind Mystique Way LLC, declined to comment on the project Tuesday. In an interview last month, he said via email that they hoped the new retail shop, Mystique of Maine, would open in April, first selling medical marijuana and eventually transitioning to adult use, and noted: “We are in discussion with several adult-use applicants and caregivers to build cannabis-related buildings for cultivation and manufacturing on Mystique Way in our 32-...

Will some percentage of those people decide to put an order in the mail and ship it? Yes. That is just the law of numbers. The big pivot point or takeaway will be the percent of new illicit growers who decide to sell outside their local circle and put it in the mail. That is an unknown right now through Google Trends and will only be determined by how much pain is felt by these individuals during the recession or pull back due to the coronavirus.

Also, few nurseries dedicated to tissue culture have cropped up recently mainly to supply cannabis growers, thus allowing them to experiment with strain replications and genetic preservation.

DEA Publishes Notice of Proposed Rulemaking On Marijuana Research
(Cannabis, Growers, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, Production, Regulations, Research, Strains, United States, Extracts, Cultivation) The USA’s Drug Enforcement Administration and Department of Justice have published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding scientific and medical research on marijuana. Cannabis research in the USA has been held back by the DEA’s stance on the issue, although it has been increasing the amount of cannabis it wants produced for research over the last couple of years. Last September, it indicated it would “facilitate and expand” scientific and medical marijuana research and last week saw another tentative step in that direction. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, published in the Federal Register today for public inspection, provides details on the proposed process for administering the new program. The DEA says the proposed rule will see additional registered growers and more diverse variety of marijuana strains available for research. Currently, the DEA has 37 pending applications to grow marijuana for research. This is long overdue – it’s now approaching four years since the...
