The Marijuana Industry Pulls Victory From the Jaws of a DEA Defeat

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

August began with plenty of promise for the marijuana industry, but those high hopes went up in smoke on Aug. 11, when the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency released its long-awaited decision on whether it would reclassify marijuana.

The DEA denies the marijuana industry a victory

For months, the marijuana industry, cannabis supporters, and medical patients had hoped that the U.S. regulatory agency, with the recommendation of the Department of Health and Human Services, would reschedule marijuana from its current status of Schedule 1 -- which deems it an illicit drug with no accepted medical use -- to Schedule 2. This would have recognized that cannabis has an accepted medical benefit, and it would have allowed physicians around the country to prescribe medical marijuana to patients with very specific ailments.

However, the decision by the DEA denied the two petitions seeking to reschedule the still-illicit drug. The DEA leaned on three points in its explanation of the decision.

Why Cannabis in Beauty Products is the Next Big Thing

As more and more states choose to lift criminal penalties and legalize cannabis medically and/or recreationally, more and more sectors of the industry are continually being born.  It is no wonder why over half the country now agrees that cannabis should be legal.

Being in Oregon and watching the roll out of Measure 91 over the last year and a half has been an incredible experience, and one area that has been particularly fun for me to observe is the area of cannabis topicals.  Companies such as Empower BodycareBud RubLuminous Botanicals,Hermetic Botanicals and many other brands here have been able to improve the quality of people’s lives or perhaps just their own personal body care and comfort.  I believe that the area of topicals is one that has yet to be truly tapped into due to the lack of research that has been allowed with cannabis since it is still not descheduled. 

However, topicals have given way to other explorations for skin care with cannabis.  Now, this seemingly limitless plant is beginning to breach the beauty industry as well, if the predictions from the trend forecasters at The Future Laboratory are correct.

Being Mindful in Colorado

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Have you ever wondered what a 43,000 square foot indoor cannabis grow farm looks like?  When I took a tour of Mindful this past February I had no idea what I was walking into.  This facility goes all the way from seed to packaging and distribution and every single step in between.

I was particularly impressed with was their systems room and just how smooth the overall facility functioned.  The employees there were happy and obviously hard at work, and it was clear that companies like this are who will set precedent for the cannabis industry and beyond.

Mindful is in both Colorado and Illinois and I would not be surprised if we see them in other states soon with the current pace of the cannabis industry.
