What’s that smell? A new strain?? Probably just the sumptuous scent of pumpkin a couple of weeks hence. Olfactory anticipation aside, the big cannabis news this week is that the official  advice on CBD limits has changed here in Britain. 

Why is that a big deal? Well, it could be disastrous for the burgeoning supplements industry, where CBD has made strides in the past couple of years. But while harm reduction is the primary concern here, it seems curious that across the Pond, the data is entirely different.

Big news this week from our Septic Isle (!). In their infinite wisdom, the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) has changed its stance on the amount of CBD deemed acceptable.

A Push for Pop Up Pot Permits 

Colorado’s can-do stance on cannabis is well-documented. But in efforts to make it more accessible, food and beverage companies are petitioning for the state’s official bods to make it easier to run pop-up edibles events; citing the need for ‘special event permits’. 

AI Calling…

Stoned Phones

Could the way we use our phones show just how stoned we are? If developments in AI are to be believed, this is already entirely possible. Duuuude. 

Dinner To Go

Drugs x Dating Don’t Mix?

Two singletons. Two conflicting opinions on cannabis. One dinner date. Will (good) sparks fly?
