06/11/2018 04:20 Cannabis/Honey oil ****CAUTION**** ***Making this over open flame can result in fire or explosion**** Materials you'll need for extraction: A glass jar with a watertight lid A metal cooking pot with handle Bottle of 190 proof grain alcohol (clear alcohol is best) Any quantity of pot, any strength (the more the better) Cheese cloth or coffee filters Funnel Small jar An ELECTRIC stove and its overhead fan Step 1 You'll need to chop up your weed and pick apart the buds until it looks like grass clippings. Remove any seeds, they have their own oils which we don't want. Dump the powdered pot into the glass jar and pour in just enough grain alcohol so the weed particles float freely in the mixture. Place the lid securely on the jar and shake a few times. Let this mixture sit for a few hours,or even days, shaking it every once in a while....

By Ivan Moreno Source: hempindustrydaily.com Mexico is poised to become the world’s most-populous country with legal marijuana and hemp next month – and, unlike its northern neighbor, Mexico is setting nationwide regulations to cover all forms of cannabis, no matter the THC content, instead of having a patchwork of laws for the two plants. That could potentially open more business opportunities in the cannabis industry, with the potential for Mexico to export and import from places worldwide where the plants are legal. Mexico does not currently allow hemp cultivation. “The impact would be quite significant,” said Lisa Pittman, a longtime cannabis attorney at the Texas-based Coats Rose law firm. “The other countries that have already legalized cannabis – Canada and Uruguay – have populations much smaller than Mexico, and Mexico already has quite a history of using cannabis and shipping cannabis across our borders.” She added that the United States’ federal prohibition...

By David E. Carpenter Source: forbes.com Hemp farmers face shifting regulations. CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty Images Another in a series of hemp companies has filed for bankruptcy protection, as the relatively nascent hemp industry strives to find a secure footing since 2018 when federal legalization of the plant commenced in the U.S. Part of the sector’s stagnation can be laid at the feet of government regulators and an inability to create clear and nonrestrictive policies around hemp. A key player in the emerging industrial hemp sector since 2014, Atalo Holdings’ predicament is a telling sign regarding the precarious status of hemp in America. One of the early movers in the resurgence of Kentucky hemp production, Atalo was one of the initial hemp processing companies in the state to receive clearance several years before legalization to grow hemp as part of a government pilot program. The company’s partners boast a history...

By David Jagielski Source: fool.com Marijuana legalization has made significant progress over the years, and Malawi is the latest country to permit its use. The African country of about 19 million people will now allow cannabis to be used in medicine and in the creation of hemp fibers. While it doesn't permit the recreational use of marijuana, it's another significant step forward for Africa, where Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, and South Africa have all loosened their laws relating to cannabis. With North American cannabis companies struggling over the past year, this is a welcome sign for investors, as it means there will be more options to invest in other parts of the world. For companies, it also creates the opportunity to import pot from other regions where it's cheaper and easier to grow year-round. And the good news is that there's another country that may soon be about to legalize pot. Lebanon...

By Laura Drotleff Source: hempindustrydaily.com USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue addresses the nation's state agriculture departments on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020 (Photo courtesy USDA) Federal agriculture officials will delay the requirement that all THC testing on hemp crops must be performed at laboratories registered with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. And food and drug regulators say it’s a “fool’s errand” to get people to stop taking over-the-counter CBD. The testing delay comes after farmers and states alike complained there wouldn’t be enough DEA labs to handle demand. The U.S. Department of Agriculture acknowledges the complaints in an update Thursday. “We now better understand how the limited number of DEA-registered labs will hinder testing and better understand the associated costs with disposing of product that contains over 0.3% THC could make entering the hemp market too risky,” USDA wrote. “We were able to reach an agreement (with DEA) that we are going to be...

By Yucatan Times Source: theyucatantimes.com Shutterstock With the capability to produce vital resources such as rope, clothing, and paper, the hemp plant has played a crucial role throughout our history. Archeological evidence suggests that we’ve been using hemp since as early as 8,000 B.C., making it the first plant ever cultivated. While hemp is very famous for its healing properties and for the creation of fibres, it is also famous for the environment, as some experts believe that its cultivation could help reduce pollution in different ways. Hemp roots help to remove heavy metals from the soil, thus helping its regeneration and decontamination, therefore, its cultivation would benefit the regeneration of the environment, in addition it perfectly favours the cleaning of soils. Hemp can be used to produce a steel alternative that is 10 times stronger than steel and 6 times more efficient at mending and bending than steel. The use of hemp...

By Mike Adams Source: cannabisnow.com PHOTO Tommology The defining factor of what makes hemp different from marijuana is the presence of THC. Researchers are trying to analyze a plant’s THC via a hand-held laser. Since industrial hemp was made legal in the United States, police forces have been scrambling around trying to figure out the difference between it and its outlaw cousin marijuana. It’s part of the reason that hemp was lumped into prohibition in the first place. Back then, lawmakers were concerned that people would use the guise of a legitimate crop to get away with growing pot. Because, well, the two plants are basically the same. They are both similar in appearance and have the same skunky odor. The difference is hemp is defined as having less than .3% THC. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell didn’t give much consideration to the confusion factor a couple of years ago when he worked his...

By WholeFoods Magazine Staff Source: wholefoodsmagazine.com Denver, CO—The 7th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo are rescheduling this year’s event out of concern for the novel coronavirus COVID-19. The show was originally scheduled for March 26-28; it is now scheduled for August 6-8, in the same locations, including the Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel and the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. Morris Beegle, Producer of the Expo, said in a press release: “The decision to shift the timing of this year’s Expo has not been an easy one. The health and safety of all participants remains a top priority. We want to provide attendees, exhibitors, vendors, staff, industry partners, and others involved in the Expo enough time to rework their schedules and plan accordingly for the newly announced August dates. We’re also exploring options for a potential online digital conference in the upcoming weeks to continue the conversation about hemp. We look forward to creating a robust,...

By Mike Adams Source: forbes.com Federal marijuana legalization is pretty close. GETTY If you listen carefully, you will hear the sound of a crooked foundation known as marijuana prohibition starting to crumble in the United States. It has been more than eight decades since the federal government outlawed the cannabis plant nationwide, and yet, here we are finally standing on its lawn with torches in hand waiting for a day of reckoning. Because no matter how much the suits on the Hill have schemed to enslave a population through backasswards drug laws, the nation has risen up in true knock-down-drag-out fashion and fought for its freedom back. Admittedly, this battle for legal bud took a lot longer than it should have, but considering that everyone in the trenches was stoned beyond belief, the marijuana movement seems to be arriving right on time. Although pro-pot groups insist that 2019 has been the...

By Keith Speights Source: fool.com Don't totally write off the chances that the MORE Act or similar legislation could become law in the not-too-distant future. Arguably the biggest legislative milestone to date related to the legalization of marijuana in the U.S. was achieved two weeks ago. The U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee voted 24 to 10 to pass the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, a bill that would legalize marijuana at the federal level. Marijuana stocks soared after the historic vote. But the initial euphoria faded as investors realized the challenges that lie ahead. Will marijuana actually become legal in the U.S., and by when? Here are three scenarios where the U.S. could legalize pot by 2021 and perhaps even sooner. IMAGE SOURCE: GETTY IMAGES. 1. McConnell allows the Senate to vote on the MORE Act Passage of the MORE Act by the full House of Representatives seems...
