What the heck is going on wit chu, thermidorks<? 

All good this end. We’re fresh from Drug Science’s UK Medical Cannabis Patient Conference and feel genuinely humbled by the no-holds-barred patient stories we heard. 

The upshot is, we still have a long way to go in educating the general public here in Britain about the benefits and availability of medical cannabis. 

But with such powerful testimonies entering public discourse, it’s surely only a matter of time before more people begin taking a closer look. 

In the meantime, the rest of the Weed World keeps turning in some interesting directions.

Swiss Rollout 

Switzerland is all set to open Europe’s first legal recreational cannabis dispensaries by the end of 2023 – as the country launches a sixth adult-use pilot project.

Police Chief Sacked For Refusing Drug Test

A UK police chief who played a critical role in the London Metropolitan Police’s drugs strategy, has been found guilty of gross misconduct for failing to provide a urine sample. Commander Julian Bennett was cleared for using cannabis at home in late 2019, but has since been dismissed amid a refusal to be tested.

More Than Terps

We all know terpenes play a massive part in giving our favourite plant its distinctive scent, but new research shows that other compounds – including something called ‘volatile sulfur compounds’ (or VSCs to noobs like us thermidorks>) – make up its olfactory profile too. 

You ok, sweetie?

Want Some Candy?

Although Halloween was last week – and with no discernible reports of edibles making it into the Trick or Treat harvest (have you SEEN the price of them??) – we thought we’d throw in a little feelgood story of edibles brand, RR Brothers, who are flourishing in both the functional fungi and cannabis gummies game.
