What if Sugarcane Was Outlawed 85 Years Ago Instead of the Marijuana Plant?
If sugar were outlawed in the 1950s, certainly big pharma would have stepped in and developed alternatives to be used in things such as soda, candy, and other high sucrose-based food.  Would those lab-made alternatives be healthier than sugar?  That is debatable to be honest, as the same discussions go on in present day society over stevia, aspartame, and xylitol.  There would certainly still be soda, candy, sweets, and sweet flavorings for food, it would just not be sugar cane based.

Hemp Cross-Pollination Could Cost Marijuana Farmers Millions as Hemp Production Expands Nationwide
Cross-pollination of cannabis plants occurs when pollen from male cannabis plants is driven by wind or any medium to female marijuana plants. The product of this move by the pollen is that the female cannabis plants direct energy into producing seeds. By doing this, the plants do not apply as much energy to providing quality cannabinoids content. When the cannabis plant is full of seeds, there is a reduction in usable volume and overall quality of the plant. The plants cannot be sold in wholesale or retail and will have to be sold for extraction. This tends to bring about huge financial losses which is the major worry of many farmers.

The New Buzzword in the Cannabis Industry - Affordable Luxury!
The goal of an affordable luxury brand is to offer a more accessible premium marijuana experience. This was the same prompting factor that pushed Jackee Stang to create Quarter as a brand for affordable luxury. Stang learned this personally as she worked as VP of programming for High Times. She was able to get access to high-quality cannabis due to her position in the firm. However, she realized that other normal customers that are not in her class of position did not have access to such cannabis products. Upon realizing this issue, she sought out to create a way to provide such products to all at a reasonable price.

A Closer Look at Seasonal Cannabis Trends - What Does the Data Really Say?
Depending who you are, the data will mean different things. For the cannabis business – it means that there are specific times when people will be buying more cannabis – typically in the middle to the end of summer. This means that you could slightly raise your prices due to a higher demand. Conversely, lowering the price in January could help stimulate a slump in sales or beat out the competition during a more competitive month.

Is Cannabis a Better Investment Than Cryptocurrency Right Now?
Though both cannabis and cryptocurrency show good promise, cannabis will have to take the edge on being the better investment choice. The moves made in the industry already project legitimacy and assurance that investors need when seeking to commit to projects. Cannabis is sure to outpace cryptocurrency and with the opening of more legal markets, it can happen sooner than projected.

Mexico Moves Forward with Marijuana Regulation - Where Does It Stand Right Now?
As I predicted in early articles – Mexico is moving forward with their legalization efforts. Of course, my predictions had nothing to do with them moving forward with their cannabis initiatives – in fact, what I’m reporting about today relates to Medical Cannabis in Mexico – which after years of deliberations was finally published by Mexico’s Health Ministry last Tuesday.

Marijuana Lean Startup - How the Cannabis Industry Pivots in the Face of Uncertainty
The cannabis industry is not one that is new to periods of uncertainties. Prior to the widespread wave of acceptance of the past couple of years, cannabis was mostly seen as a harmful narcotic drug. Although this is false it was the gospel at the time; thankfully we all now know the beneficial natural herb for what it truly is. The cannabis industry has faced really tough adversities and the industry survived these tough times through doggedness and resilience. The industry will also need such resilience with the recent turn of events following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Is Hempcrete the Future of Construction?
The goal of becoming a climate-neutral economy by 2050 is very important to the EU and maximizing hempcrete is a great way of doing that. The 27-membered body sketched out a plan to achieve this goal called the Circular Economy Action Plan. Hempcrete falls in line with the objectives of this plan which includes minimizing resource and energy consumption and curtail waste generation. The construction industry accounts for 50% of extracted materials and over 35% of the waste generated in the EU. These are the targets the climate-neutral goal seeks to change which makes hempcrete a worthy venture for the EU construction industry.

Is It True That 25% of People Who Use Medical Cannabis Suffer from Severe Withdrawal if They Stop?
A recent article on Neuroscience News claims that 1 in 4 Medical marijuana consumers suffer from “Severe Withdrawal” when abstaining from the medicine. They also claim that 10% experience “worsening of symptoms” over 2-years as they continued to use cannabis. Now – if you’ve been reading my articles for some time now you’ll know what I’m about to do – OPEN UP A CAN OF STFU! On some bias science. Hell – I just wrote a bit about how the government funds “anti-cannabis” studies simply to push the narrative that cannabis is bad.

Will Cannabis Entrepreneurs Switch to Psychedelics?
Much like cannabis, the psychedelic sector is gradually growing day by day with different moves being made in the right direction. This has prompted many big investors to make the move into psychedelics. Growing acceptance and decriminalization by the government is also a factor pushing many into psychedelics with a big market ensured. Some big companies in the US are consciously making considerable moves towards the decriminalization of psychedelics. Examples are Revive Therapeutics, Champignon brand, Hollister Biosciences, etc.
