Wait, Is It Safe To Vape Again?

High-quality vapes with healthy components are not always expensive the same way expensive vapes are not always of the best grades. Here’s what to look for.

5 Predictions for Craft Cannabis in 2021

As the Founder and CEO of Humboldt Seed Company, I have been breeding cannabis for more than 20 years. I've seen many trends in the craft cannabis space. Here's what I see on the harvest horizon. 

1. Terpenes will have their day in the sun

Terpenes, flavonoids, and esters are huge drivers of the effect cannabis have on consumers. Consumers are just now starting to become aware of this on a larger scale. Currently, most brands are not displaying terpene levels. Still, as the information gets out there and people realize that terpenes are such an essential determining piece of the puzzle as far as the experience goes, consumers will demand this information on the packaging just like we see ingredients and nutritional information displayed on food packaging.


Ancillary Cannabis Vendors Support Sustainability Initiatives of Operators

The cannabis industry and sustainability movement have met at a critical intersection, changing the upward trajectory of social responsibility in the industry for good.

Driven by evolving environmental regulations, consumer demand, and the best interests of the business, cannabis operators looking to promote sustainable business practices are no longer alone in their venture. Ancillary product and services vendors are supporting operators in new ways.

As the cannabis industry matures and competition intensifies, ancillary vendors are looking for ways to provide added value to their customers.


Blockchain Technology Creating Transparency and Boosting Confidence in the Cannabis Industry

As the global cannabis industry continues to expand in ways previously unimaginable, there is a growing demand for transparency throughout the cultivation and distribution processes – complete seed to sale observability. A handful of startups around the world are tapping into this need by offering blockchain-based solutions for cannabis businesses.


Hemp is becoming the fashionable alternative to conventional fabrics

Local, organically sourced and upcycled materials are now essentials for the fashion industry, which is trying to reinvent itself in order to reduce its impact on the environment.

Like linen, hemp is one of the fibres that could well take over our wardrobes in the months and years to come.

One need only take a look at the new collections of most ready-to-wear brands, including fast fashion giants, to realise that the textile industry is gradually turning to sustainable materials.

It includes organic for some, but also plant-based, and particularly materials whose cultivation requires less water, no or few pesticides, and, icing on the cake, can be done locally.


Increasing Global Lumber Prices May Help Hemp Industry

Lumber has been one of the most common building materials in construction for a very long time.

It is not the most popular building material on earth, as that distinction goes to concrete. However, wood is still very popular and has been for centuries.

Houses, wagons, bridges, and a number of other things have been made out of wood in many different countries throughout the world both historically and currently.

Unfortunately, prices for lumber have increased exponentially this year, which may ultimately prove to be a blessing to the global hemp industry.


How To Battle Animal & Mold Infestations in Outdoor Cannabis Grows

All outdoor cannabis crops have the potential to be destroyed by one or two of the various problems lurking in the wilderness, unlike indoor growing where plants are protected. In checking on the crop, make sure to keep an eye on the little details that will spell trouble later. There are a few different things to look for:


How are CBD goods made? Behind the scenes of manufacturing & processing

CBD is somewhat magical in more ways than just its natural, wide-ranging therapeutic effects. If you think about it – it’s pretty extraordinary that a seemingly unsuspecting plant gets transformed into beneficial oils, and other types of goods. So, what happens on this magical journey of a cannabis hemp plant, getting extracted and processed into the goods we know and love?

Knowing how your products are made from start to finish, can help you better understand price points, and appreciate the true labor and love behind each bottle you enjoy. So, let’s find out more about the manufacturing process it takes to produce the varied consistencies and textures of the most popular CBD products.


Using CBD Oil as a Safe and Natural Food Preservative

When it comes to consumer packaged goods, especially those with natural ingredients, preserving freshness and quality is a top priority. Unfortunately, many of the existing additives currently on the market are incredibly unhealthy (toxic and cancerous really), so there is a pressing need for safer alternatives.


Why Gas Detection is Critical for Cannabis Growers’ Health and Safety

In the U.S., cannabis legalization began in 2012 when both Colorado and Washington approved cannabis for recreational use.

Today, cannabis is legal in 11 states, along with Washington, D.C., for both recreational and medicinal use for adults over the age of 21.

For medicinal use only, it is currently legal in 33 other states. Recreational legalization allowed the cannabis cultivation industry to flourish exponentially.

The spike in demand for higher quality cannabis caused growers to experiment with their crops’ growing operations to yield higher volume.

Growers improved their lights, growth mediums, pesticides, heating, cooling and ventilation techniques.
