Happy Spannabis week everyone! Yup, the canna spotlight is once again shining upon...

Happy Spannabis week everyone! Yup, the canna spotlight is once again shining upon Barcelona over the next few days, and is sure to be a buzz-filled blur of sunshine, smoke, and social clubs.

Alas, us thermidor<ks won’t be attending this year, but ICYMI, here’s our awesome (if we don’t say so ourselves!) video series from last year’s show.

Other than that… well, it’s been a week, that’s for sure.

Here’s what’s caught our eye.

What The Fuchs?

As rec cannabis edges towards legalisation in Germany, an interesting ad from one of the nation’s medical cannabis companies has tongues wagging, heads scratching, and some advocates seething. Rapper Antifuchs has teamed up with Drapalin Pharmaceuticals to create a music video that, well, presents medical cannabis in a consumer-focused light.

Is it a step too far? Take a look and decide. We’d love to hear your thoughts (mail dave.barton@thermidor.wtf)

Biden – chasing them votes?:

Biden His Time?

Across the Pond in the US, many are enthused by President Joe Biden’s positive cannabis claims made during his State of The Union address last week. But does it bode well for actual rescheduling or is it merely a d*ck waving exercise ahead of a crucial election later this year?

Let's go to Guyana!

Guyana's High Hopes For Hemp

Hemp fanciers in the small South American nation of Guyana are confident that the winds of change are in the air. Rumour has it that ‘a regulatory body and framework are being readied’ by the country’s Ministry of Agriculture – a move that’s seemingly taken a couple of years since the 2022 Hemp Bill was passed in the former British colony.

Weep, Banana Cat, weep.

Timeline For Thai Ban

Thailand’s move to ban recreational cannabis – despite legalising it two years ago – now has a timeline in place (kinda). It’s due to be reclassified by the ‘end of the year’. Apparently the prospect of $1.2 billion in revenues isn’t reason enough to maintain a flourishing industry.

Major Movement In Hawaii

The Aloha State is set to usher in a new recreational market – starting in January 2026. A strong senate majority was noted as being in favour of adult use; which will make it legal for consumers to grow up to six plants and possess an ounce of flower.

That oughta do it...

CBDips?

Is the CBD Rush over? Did it ever really start? According to a report in The Guardian, as America edges towards federal legalisation – and more psychoactive substances become mainstream – the CBD market is all but propping up the bar.
