What Can You Do When Your Grow Room Gets Too Hot or Humid?

Two very important factors when it comes to the growth of the cannabis plants are temperature and humidity and controlling these two will play a huge role in the success of the cultivation process.

Is cannabis bad for the heart? Let’s take a closer look! Most people I know don’t have forty Google-Alerts set up for any type of cannabis news and so, I imagine there are many of you who haven’t been tuned into the idea that cannabis may be bad for the heart. Of course – for those who have been smoking weed sufficiently long, these public health scares about the dangers of marijuana is nothing new. In fact – over the years I have gone through the effort to debunk many of these studies or at the very least – show […]

Pandemic challenges cannabis marijuana weed companies – Crain's Chicago Business

(Bloomberg) — Cannabis companies are learning that to survive the pandemic, bigger isn’t necessarily better. Specialized operations and a narrow geographic footprint are buoying marijuana providers such as Trulieve Cannabis Corp. at a time when the broader industry is struggling with falling demand and capital constraints. That’s a shift from a few years ago, when exuberance in the market pushed cannabis companies to expand their reach across the nation in a hasty land grab, which has left many onetime heavyweights overextended. Companies with a broader reach got “punished” last quarter, said Joe Caltabiano, a cannabis entrepreneur who recently left the […]

Dave Silberman: Regulating cannabis, the Vermont way – vtdigger.org

Editor’s note: This commentary is by Dave Silberman, an attorney and pro bono drug policy reform advocate in Middlebury. He is currently a candidate for high bailiff of Addison County.  After years of false starts, Vermont is finally poised to truly legalize and regulate cannabis; both the House and Senate have passed a regulation bill (S.54) by overwhelming margins, and, after months of foot-dragging, a conference committee has begun meeting to iron out the differences between the two chambers. Vermonters approve regulating cannabis by about a 3-to-1 margin. Multiple analyses have shown that doing so will increase tax revenues, and […]

Since the Bay Mills Indian Community announced plans in August to launch a vertically integrated cannabis business, accusations about the state’s unwillingness to work with the tribe and the state’s own relative silence highlight what tribal experts say is a complicated web of state regulation and tribal sovereignty. At the heart of the issue is whether the state and tribes that operate cannabis businesses should sign compacts stipulating agreements involving revenue sharing and oversight, not unlike casino gaming compacts. However, Bay Mills has publicly said the state is unwilling to work with them while reports have suggested the state is […]

This time round, Lockdown for Auckland has seemed more serious -not just an aberration. Even though Level Three ended last night, the collective response seems to have a different permanence, as behaviours and systems of protection become more entrenched. Though for some, maybe not so much – as with those 500 protesting against Lockdown at Aotea Square on Saturday, or people enjoying Takapuna beach without masks or social distance. But community transmission really does mean it’s in our community. It’s pretty close to my community. -Someone later diagnosed with Covid went into one of my ‘local’ supermarkets, Lincoln Rd Pak […]
