Study: For Some Symptoms, Medical Marijuana With THC Is Better Than CBD

The cannabis plant has hundreds of “active ingredients,” but the two most prominent—and the only two most people have heard of—are THC and CBD.

Despite “medical marijuana” laws specifically allowing people to access cannabis products containing THC, over the past few years, one line of conventional wisdom goes something like this: THC is the molecule that gets you high; CBD is non-psychoactive and promotes healing.

Since federal law allows CBD but still bans more than a minute amount of THC, in some circles, the dichotomy has devolved further to some version of “THC is for fun; CBD is for medicine.” (Certain CBD companies take this too far and make all kinds of outrageous product claims, prompting warnings from the Food and Drug Administration.)

After 50 Years, U.S. Opens The Door To More Cannabis Crops For Scientists

After more than 50 years, the federal government is lifting a roadblock to cannabis research that scientists and advocates say has hindered rigorous studies of the plant and possible drug development.

Since 1968, U.S. researchers have been allowed to use cannabis from only one domestic source: a facility based at the University of Mississippi, through a contract with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

That changed earlier this month, when the Drug Enforcement Administration announced it’s in the process of registering several additional American companies to produce cannabis for medical and scientific purposes.

Escondido Won't Budge On Cannabis Dispensaries Ban – KPBS

Photo by Alexander Nguyen

Above: A marijuana bud on display at Hidden Leaf Collective, May 28, 2021.

Despite most Escondido residents voting for Proposition 64 to legalize recreational cannabis in 2016, you still won’t be able to find a legal dispensary in the city.

On May 19, the city council voted 3-2 to continue a prohibition on legal cannabis dispensaries. Though the county recently voted to allow dispensaries in unincorporated areas, Escondido is not alone as San Marcos has a similar ban.

Karla Aguilar said continuing the ban will only hurt those on the bottom rungs of society. People of color have traditionally been targeted by law enforcement during the war on drugs and Aguilar said this will continue to widen the inequity.

“The lack of dispensaries and access to cannabis has become devastating especially for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities who do not have reliable transportation to drive upwards to 30 minutes to obtain cannabis,” she said at the meeting.

Marcello Castillo, co-owner of the medical cannabis delivery service Hidden Leaf Collective, was disappointed with the council’s vote after he had lined up a location and lease to open a

Why The Coronavirus Pandemic Was a Breakout Moment for the Cannabis Industry – The New York Times

For many Americans, having enough marijuana was as essential as stocking up on toilet paper. And suppliers found a way to get it to them.

This article is part of Owning the Future, a series on how small businesses across the country have been affected by the pandemic.

“I expect this will be the first year Nevada does over a billion in cannabis sales,” said Nicolas MacLean, chief executive of Aether Gardens, a cannabis producer in Las Vegas. “And it happened on the back of what I think no one expected.”

Last March, the Strip went dark in its first total shutdown since the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. In the ensuing weeks, Las Vegas became the layoff epicenter of the United States. With casinos closed, visitor volume dropped to a little over 100,000 in April 2020 from 3.5 million in January 2020. The decrease sent the state’s small businesses — including the
