THCA

Study: THCA May Help Treat Huntington’s Disease

The compound THCA, an acidic precursor to THC which is found in cannabis, could one day be used to treat the neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory effects of Huntington’s and related diseases, according to scientists in a study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. In the study, researchers found that THCA reduced inflammation and acted as a neuroprotectant when they analyzed the effects of cannabis compounds in animals. They concluded that the compound improved motor function and prevented brain degeneration. “I think we have something here and it’s pretty exciting,” said Gaetano Morello, a co-author of the study and a cannabis researcher and naturopathic […]

Alaska's Marijuana Ban

Alaska’s Marijuana Ban Gets Rejected By Voters

Alaska’s Marijuana Ban – Three years after Alaska legalized recreational cannabis, some localities in the state’s major marijuana growing areas considered Alaska’s Marijuana Ban. Thankfully for the businesses (and customers) in those areas, voters voted against those band by large margins. When Alaska legalized adult use of recreational cannabis in 2014, they allowed for localities to ban cannabis within their borders, and two localities, in and around Fairbanks and on the Kenai Peninsula, tried to do just that. The proposed bans encompassed marijuana growing, manufacturing, selling, and testing in those areas, and threatened many people’s livelihood: had the bans passed, businesses that […]

Marijuana Jobs Are Leading The Nation In Growth

Almost 150,000 legal full-time marijuana jobs, including ancillary industry jobs like consulting and hydroponics providers, according to new data from Leafly.com. This is the second time Leafly has undertaken taking a tally of marijuana jobs after realizing that the Schedule I status of the drug meant that state and federal statisticians couldn’t get an accurate count. This also allows us to compare last year’s numbers to this year: this year, Leafly found 149,304 full-time jobs in legal cannabis. Last year, they found 122,814 full-time cannabis industry jobs, a huge increase of 22% in just 12 months. The industry is booming, and will […]

San Francisco Recreational Marijuana Permits Delayed

San Francisco Recreational Marijuana – Not the only municipality to be dragging their feet, San Francisco will be another city delaying recreational permits when recreational cannabis becomes legal in California in January 2018. Though it’ll be a buzz-kill for some, it’s actually for good reason: San Francisco is delaying so they can pass a few laws to regulate the market and create an equity program. The equity program is intended to help low-income entrepreneurs, people of color, and former drug offenders create cannabis-related businesses: a boon in a city that will likely see a lot of rich, and white, investors pushing […]

Atlanta Decriminalizes Marijuana

Atlanta Decriminalizes Marijuana

Atlanta Decriminalizes Marijuana – “In the weeks leading up to this, there has been all this emphasis on decriminalization and legalization, and that is not what the ordinance is,” said Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields. “The ordinance is not written requiring anything different of law enforcement. The ordinance strictly deals with the city courts and municipal court and their fine process.” In case you were getting your hopes up: this is far more about the kinds of penalties that people picked up for weed-related offenses in Atlanta, Georgia, will see. The drug is still considered illegal in the state of […]

California Recreational Marijuana

California Recreational Marijuana Struggles Continue

You heard that right: due to regulatory red tape, many if not all Bay Area cities, as well as cities throughout the rest of the Sunshine State, won’t be prepared to permit businesses when California Recreational Marijuana becomes legal in the state on the first of January. There are a few reasons for the lag: some cities are likely dragging their feet on getting their own regulatory framework up and going, but the state also has not delivered its final regulations, which are expected sometime in November.
