That’s it. It’s done. Summer is now just a memory as we slowly seep into the duller months of the year. But, fear not dear reader, all is not lost. For there is little comfort like being indoors when it’s rainy outside. Even better if you’ve got something great to read like *ahem* the lobsterpot (!)
Alan Watts was a certifiably groovy dude, who took a great deal of Eastern philosophy and teachings and translated and interpreted them for a western audience. Check out some of his books – he wrote a lot of them(!).
“The only serious side-effect of marijuana is that you might get arrested.”
Nearly all of the medical cannabis in the UK has at some stage been irradiated. That doesn’t mean you actually have radioactive bud, but it does mean –for some at least, – that the taste, smell, and effectiveness of that cannabis isn’t up to scratch. But is there any truth in that? Let’s see what Leafie has to say about that!
This brilliant piece from the cool cats over at Hanway Associates does a remarkable job of asking some pretty fundamental questions about cannabis and the transparency surrounding it. Whether it’s quality testing (we’ve just recorded a podcast on this – stay tuned!) or how we view cannabis as a medicine – it’s all incredibly important.
In what feels very poorly timed as a potential constitutional crisis, Bermuda has been working on a legalised cannabis market bill and framework for some time. However, it’s just recently been quashed as the UK’s foreign secretary advised that it shouldn’t be given royal assent. Lunacy.
With the second largest number of medical cannabis patients of any country in Europe, you’d think Italy would be at full speed when it comes to its supply chain. Unfortunately, because the domestic supply is grown by one provider – the military – it’s quickly failing to keep up with demand.
It seems to us, always pretty reasonable, that rather than punishing people who take drugs, you should try to help them. That’s what High Hopes in Vancouver are doing, with a program that aims to deliver medical cannabis to addicts to help combat addiction and overdose. Good on you(!).
You might not have heard of ketamine-as-a-treatment per se, but it’s finding more and more traction as conversations around ‘drugs’ evolve, we see the success of medical cannabis, and of trials for psychedelics like psilocybin. For the last few years, treatment studies for ketamine have been quietly making ground.
We took note of the last licence they bagged, only a few weeks ago, but this one is a biggy. 4C Labs now has the licence required to operate a distribution network that includes delivering medical cannabis products to the UK from Guernsey. It’s happening(!).
