Automation & Artificial Intelligence Revolutionize the Cannabis Industry

To some, artificial intelligence (AI) may be categorized next to the likes of Bitcoin and blockchain: it’s just another techie buzz word.

For others, artificial intelligence could conjure up images of sentient robots hellbent on world domination.

While artificial intelligence, in some ways, can be those things, what it is in practice often looks much different.

The artificial intelligence that many people talk about today can also be referred to as machine learning, or the process by which software takes in data, learns patterns, and makes whatever adjustments it needs to make to achieve its goal.

The goal in our case?

Maximizing cannabis yields and sales.

Making Sense Of Cannabis Warning Labels And Their Effectiveness

Cannabis is safer than alcohol.

How much so?

According to at least one peer reviewed study the cannabis plant is 114 times safer than alcohol.

In fact, the cannabis plant is safer than many substances that are common around households across the globe.

With that being said, that is not the same as saying that cannabis does not have any side effects.

The cannabis plant can definitely cause side effects, albeit effects that are not as detrimental compared to those caused by other substances.

The list of the cannabis plant’s side effects very notably does not include death, however, there are still certain side effects that consumers need to know about.

Quality Will Be The Key Differentiator For Cannabis Exports

The legal cannabis industry is going global.

Dozens of countries now allow legal medical cannabis sales in some form, and more are looking to do the same for adult-use cannabis.

Currently, only Canada and Uruguay have legalized cannabis for adult use, however, that will likely change sooner rather than later.

Several countries are exploring a policy change to permit adult-use cannabis, and Italy, Mexico, and South Africa are in the process of implementing pro-legalization court decisions.

The spread of cannabis reform across the globe is being paralleled by the rise of the legal international cannabis industry.

Cannabis imports and exports are already allowed in several countries, with more on the way.

Calgary hemp processors, Hutterites trail blaze with 'potent' CBD

When Andrew Potter’s Calgary-based cannabis processing outfit wanted to go where none had before, Hutterite help seemed a natural fit.

“We needed growers who are low-cost and have big kind of (production) positions,” said Blue Sky Hemp Venture’s CEO Potter.

“Hutterite colonies ticked all the boxes in being sustainable and low-cost.”

That’s led to five Saskatchewan colonies this year harvesting most of Blue Sky’s total of 970 hectares of hemp — a cousin of the marijuana plant that contains almost none of its buzz-inducing THC content.

Why Cannabis Juicing Can Be Good For You

Some people report a dramatic change after just one serving of raw cannabis juice, while others may take four to eight weeks to see full results. 

Cold-press juices enable one to partake of the nutrients present in raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs that get lost once the products are heated or cooked. In a similar vein, consuming raw cannabis leaves and buds as a dietary aid increases the anti-oxidant and neuroprotective properties of this plant.

Raw cannabis can contain 500mg to 1,000 mg of non-psychoactive THCA, CBDA, and CBGA. In comparison, the same amount of cannabis once heated contains 10 mg THC. Also, as the THC in cannabis only becomes psychoactive when heated, consuming raw cannabis allows one to get the benefits of the plant in a non-intoxicating way.
