Italy Is Leading the Way Toward Pot Legalization and Innovation

Category: News | Posted on Thu, June, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Italy is becoming one of the most progressive countries in Europe for cannabis cultivation, production and innovation. Or maybe it has always been.

Alongside olives, tomatoes and the world’s best lemons, Italy has been growing hemp and cannabis for hundreds of years as industrial crops. Cannabis was essential to Italy’s shipping industry, which it supplied with material to make ropes, rigging and sails.

In fact, Italy was one of the world’s top hemp producers during the first half of the 20th century, before growers and consumers were undercut by prohibition and synthetic materials.

Now, with the help of the government, Italy is moving back into its position as one the most important European countries in the cannabis industry.

High Hopes Ride on Marijuana Amid Opioid Crisis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

(Reuters) - A handful of drugmakers are taking their first steps toward developing marijuana-based painkillers, alternatives to opioids that have led to widespread abuse and caused the U.S. health regulator to ask for a withdrawal of a popular drug this month.

The cannabis plant has been used for decades to manage pain and there are increasingly sophisticated marijuana products available across 29 U.S. states, as well as in the District of Columbia, where medical marijuana is legal.

This medical marijuana start-up uses artificial intelligence to find which strain is best for you

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Artificial intelligence is being used to improve bankingmarketingthe legal field — and now to find which one of the more than 30,000 strains of medical marijuana is best for you.

Potbot uses AI to "read" through peer-reviewed medical journals to find studies on cannabinoids, the active compounds in marijuana. Using the research, it pairs 37 symptoms like insomnia, asthma and cancer with branded marijuana strains to find which type of weed is best suited to treat each one.

The company has raised $5 million to date, according to Potbotics CEO David Goldstein. Part of the reason for its success is the technology doesn't actually involve marijuana directly, making it completely legal he said. The app is available in Apple's App Store and the Google Play store. In addition, the bigger pharmaceutical companies haven't entered the space, giving the marijuana industry a "start-up mentality."
