Now that it’s legal to grow once more USU researchers are back at it — only this time, they’re using technology and testing to determine the optimal ways to grow the plant for high yield and cannabinoid content, and what that means for Utah growers. There are at least 66 different cannabinoids in cannabis flower, […]
Officials in Texas have certified that the code banning the retail sale and distribution of smokable hemp products has been approved and becomes effective Aug. 2. The disputed measure, part of a larger hemp law signed by Gov. Greg Abbott last summer, enforces a ban on the manufacture, processing, distribution, or retail sale of consumable hemp products […]
Federal agriculture authorities have awarded $200,000 to a West Virginia University professor to study what leads to inconsistent levels of THC in hemp plants, sometimes above what’s legal.
Delta 8 has become increasingly popular over the past months in the hemp world as Delta 8 vape cartridges and Delta 8 sprayed flower became the new thing. Delta 8 (D8) is a legal alternative to the federally regulated compound Delta 9. Of the compounds within cannabis, the most cited is easily Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to […]
OVERVIEW In this post find an overview of New York’s Hemp Pilot Program as well as links to the applications and details for applying. New York’s Governor has recognized industrial hemp and smokable hemp flower as a promising new economic opportunity for farmers and recently signed legislation to solidify the status of industrial hemp as […]
The effect of delta 8 is more mild in psychoactivity when compared to delta 9. Delta 8 is not a new discovery but has only recently become popular as an additive in products. Delta 8 is a double bond isomer of the more common delta 9 THC. While delta 8 is not as strong as delta 9, it is […]
In the hemp world things have moved fast. It was only a few years ago I was surprised to see an Oregon based farm pioneering the way to the beginnings of a smokable hemp flower market. They were the first to see an opportunity to bring a smokable flower alternative to cannabis that could be […]
Delta 8 is a popular alternative to Delta 9 and is another cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis plants that can also be synthesized using distillate and isolate. It does not produce the same psychoactivity common to Deta 9 consumption. As the hemp industry expands and research continues, new compounds from cannabis and hemp plants […]
Delta 8 is a compound found in both cannabis and hemp plants. It exists naturally in both plants in trace amounts but can also be synthesized through chemistry. In this blog post we will cover what sprayed flower is as well as commonly used methods for production. WHAT IS SPRAYED FLOWER ? Sprayed flower is a […]
Through an aging process, the Delta 9 compound oxidizes into an isomer known as Δ8-THC. These two phytocannabinoids are analogs that share the same structural formula but have a slightly different arrangement of atoms. The molecular similarities provide similar therapeutic avenues with different psychoactive effects. DELTA 8 SOURCES: 1. Extraction from plant material 2. Created through […]
What is the Legal Status of Delta-8 THC? Since the compound shares such a close molecular design with delta-9 THC, it currently falls under the same legal status thanks to the Federal Analogue Act. This means not only that the public has a tough time accessing the compound, but research on the substance is difficult to […]
Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation agents in November raided an Albin hemp farm, operated by two people instrumental in legalizing the crop in Wyoming, court filings show.
