Woot woot(!). It’s here, the week of Lift Toronto. We are absolutely buzzing to be headed out for a week – no doubt packed with great people and great products. The second we finish writing this it’s bag stuffing time!

Gonna be there too? Hit us up if you want to be on camera. We want to get a feel for how Canadian cannabis is faring five years post-legalisation – so we’d love some diverse opinions.

In other news, ICYMI, check out Dave’s feature in Fat Nugs Magazine – if you want a fun, engaging insight into Britain’s complicated relationship with cannabis, that is (if we don’t say so ourselves).

Read Cannarchy In The UK: The Decline of The British Hempire.

And… if you really like it: why not hire us to write contentfor your cannabis brand? 

Yah, we do that too!

Delta-8 We Have A Problem

Now this isn’t confirmed (or definitely happening), but based on a recent agency presentation from the DEA synthetic cannabinoids containing THC (including Delta-8) could soon be treated as controlled substances. Alarm bells for a lot of folks out there.

Positively Psychedelic

Psychedelic reform is springing up all over. In some ways it’s likely to have an easier go of it than cannabis because you only have one compound to ‘worry’ about. We’re happy to say that the UK is also part of this movement and it’s gaining traction politically too.

Spice Gulls

We try to keep things directly cannabis centric in our content. But sometimes you just have to throw a curveball in. In a word: seagulls. Yes, those winged bastards that all too frequently commit airborne acts of food thievery – by dive bombing unsuspecting citizens – in coastal towns around Britain. Well, joke’s on them now. Apparently, an increasing number of these avian menaces have been procuring a synthetic cannabinoid  – known as ‘Spice’–  in their usual disarming manner. 

"Giggle Elsewhere"

Those caught publicly smoking cannabis in Amsterdam’s Red Light District can now be handed a €100 fine. Apparently, local residents want fewer revellers making noise and trouble in the city. That’s understandable, but what about the massive amounts of booze consumed – and the demonstrably more negative effects on public safety?

Absolute Swiss

Bern, Biel/Bienne, Lucerne, and Geneva have joined Basel and Zurich on the list of Swiss cities trialling the sale of legal cannabis. Funny how this typically conservative nation is driving cannabis reform forward.

Grey Areas Aren't Great

Across Europe raids continue on CBD stores that stock hemp products containing THC levels of 0.3% or lower. Portugal, in this case, has provided some stats to demonstrate how much product has been taken out of circulation. The confusion is still set around whether or not CBD is a ‘novel food’. 

thermidor< is a content-led, cannabis-focused, creative agency. We work with B2B, B2C, and D2C brands to develop messaging, brand, and tone of voice, as well as create written, audio, and visual content such as blogs, whitepapers, podcasts, and event films.
