How AI Could Finally Solve the Cannabis Breathalyzer and DUI Impairment Testing Riddle

by DanaSmith | Saturday Nov 25, 2023

It’s almost 2024, and truly reliable pot breathalyzers are nowhere in sight. Breathalyzers just don’t work – if they do, not as well – in detecting THC levels in the body of a driver the way that it detects alcohol. While the use of breathalyzers have been considered the gold standard for detecting alcohol consumption or usage, these systems can’t support the use of THC. Most traditional breathalyzers are made using fuel cell technology, which can gauge alcohol levels in one’s breath. It works simply by breathing on the fuel cell, which then produces electrical currents depending on how much alcohol one consumed.

What Are The Top I.T. Problems in the Cannabis Industry? (And How to Solve Them!)

by Karhlyle | Wednesday Sep 14, 2022

To cultivate well, the marijuana plant requires regular attention, near-perfect light, and water conditions. With so many plants, it is almost inconceivable for humans to satisfy around-the-clock maintenance. Those who can afford it fund the Internet of Things (IoT), allowing agriculture tools to manage farms for ultimate productivity. But as automation advances, many fear that owning machinery will harm the quality due to a deficiency of personal touch and maintenance. 


What is a Pollen Press and How Does It Work with Cannabis?

by DanaSmith | Thursday Aug 4, 2022

Pollen presses are a simple to use and humble tool that is already widely used to make hash coins, though it can also be used by recreational users for personal benefit. Even if you aren’t manufacturing hash, the use of a pollen press is a fantastic way to maximize your stash. Once you have the pressed product, you can then use it in so many ways instead of wasting it: vaporize it, dab it, and sprinkle them into your bongs or blunts.


Are Live Resin and Live Terpenes Actually Alive? What Makes Them Live?

by BehindTheWaves | Tuesday Jul 26, 2022

The name live is attached to live resins and live terpenes because they are gotten from fresh cannabis plants. As stated earlier, most cannabis concentrates are gotten from plant material that has been cured or dried. Live resins on the other hand make use of fresh flower buds and sugar leaves while leaving out the stems and large fan leaves. Another special characteristic is the flash-freezing of the plant material which helps to retain the terpenes, cannabinoids, and trichomes. This helps in ensuring the final products have special flavors and aromas thanks to the terpenes.

What are Terp Pearls and How Do You Use Them While Dabbing?

by Joseph Billions | Tuesday Feb 8, 2022

Terp Pearls, also called dab beads or banger beads, are tiny balls placed within a banger to reduce the dabbing temperatures. The beads constantly spin around the banger to ensure the concentrates are appropriately heated and distributed while increasing airflow. The continuous movement of the balls allows the heat to be evenly distributed to minimize waste (regular dab rigs can do little to preserve the terpenes in the concentrate).
