‘Sup thermidor<ks?

Can’t grumble this end. Had a fantastic time at EmpowHer’s UK cannabis networking event in London last week: props to Heidi Whitman and Rebecca Allen-Tapp for bringing all of the leading lights in UK (and beyond!) cannabis together for an inclusive and good spirited evening. Looking forward to the next one!

(Promo vid coming soon! Watch this space…)

In the meantime, here are some of the crispiest, crunchiest, canna stories from the last week.

Enjoy!

NFL Backs CBD

The NFL is making good on its 2022 commitment to spending $1 million on research into the use of cannabinoids into concussion prevention. A three year study has been approved for exploring CBD as a viable treatment.


God's Own Cannabis?

Yorkshire Haze

Yorkshire has a long held reputation for being home to a stoic, sensible, brand of Britishness. So it’s encouraging to see that a cannabis club is poised to open in the city of Doncaster. Owner, Dan Taylor, is confident that his bid for transparency and cooperation will win over local residents and help squash the stigma. By ‘eck we hope he’s right.


If ya know, ya know...

Looking Up, Down Under

Australia and New Zealand continue to make waves in their commitment to furthering cannabis legalisation – though both seem to have contrasting approaches. While NZ is keen to help local producers export, its northern neighbour aims to ease imports.


Screeeecch!!

Oregon Making A U-Turn?

After decriminalising low-level drug possession offences three years ago, it now looks like the US state of Oregon is backtracking on this. Local Democrats are behind the proposal, with strong backing from the GOP.


Dodgy Dealings Making A Comeback?

Schedule III Could Send Consumers Back To Legacy

A new survey reveals that nearly a third (32%) of cannabis consumers would revert back to the legacy market, if rescheduling cannabis meant that access would be restricted to medical-only. Who can blame them?


Sew What?

All Sewn Up

It looked like a fairly innocuous object: a glass replica of a 19th century sewing machine proudly  in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. But in actual fact, it’s a bong – hiding in plain sight! Read the full story – it’s quite a tale.
