Time for a New FDA Regulatory Category?

Time for a New FDA Regulatory Category?

Cannabinoid products are on a collision course with FDA’s single-molecule fetish. The Cannabis industry strives for robust “full spectrum” and “broad spectrum” poly-cannabinoid profiles, FDA wants only one active ingredient, two at most. The only solution is to define this new class of Cannabis products as a new category. There is precedent for the same … Continue reading "Time for a New FDA Regulatory Category?" ...

CBD May Convert to THC in the Stomach

Chemical conversion of CBD to THC was known to be possible but commercially unfeasible as it was cheaper to grow the THC than convert it. But a 2007 study suggests that stomach acid can convert oral CBD to Δ9 THC (2.9%), CBN (1.1%), and two metabolites (1.4% and 10%), one of which is 25% as … Continue reading "CBD May Convert to THC in the Stomach" ...

Non-Cannabis Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are known to occur in several plant species besides Cannabis. See Rudolf Bauer et al., CB Receptor Ligands from Plants, 8 Curr. Topics in Med.

Better Nomenclature Needed; Not Phenotype or Genotype, but Chemotype

Better Nomenclature Needed; Not Phenotype or Genotype, but Chemotype

We need better nomenclature for discussing Cannabis, beyond Indica/Sativa or even NLD/BLD/NLH/BLH. Why? Because “strain” names are about as informative as band names, and that’s because… The same genotype could produce wildly different chemical composition depending on growing practices. There are virtually no pure or true Indica or Sativa cultivars anymore, they are all Hybrids. … Continue reading "Better Nomenclature Needed; Not Phenotype or Genotype, but Chemotype" ...

Is U.K. “Reefer Madness” Linked To Tobacco Use?

The British establishment is going through a profound Reefer Madness phase, desperate to keep Cannabis (that’s what they call marijuana but they oddly don’t include hemp) illegal. Not actually illegal as much as a monopoly for just their Big Pharma friends, as the UK’s Drugs Minister’s husband grows weed for GW Pharmaceuticals. Just like in … Continue reading "Is U.K. “Reefer Madness” Linked To Tobacco Use?" ...

Hemp Genetics Sources

Selection of which cultivar(s) to grow is perhaps the single most-critical part of the growing hemp puzzle. Choosing the wrong cultivar can be a disaster, losing your crop after expensive inputs due to flowering issues, lack of market, lack of cannabinoids (CBDa and CBGa), or high THC level (0.3% max THC in US and Canada, … Continue reading "Hemp Genetics Sources" ...

Hemp Farm Bill Winners and Losers

The 2018 Farm Bill (“FB18”) in December descheduled hemp Cannabis at the federal level, turning regulation over to USDA, which is delegating it to the states. As passed it only legalized growing it and its fiber, but also banned drug felons from low-THC drug-free industrial hemp. Surprisingly, an hour after Trump signed it, the FDA … Continue reading "Hemp Farm Bill Winners and Losers" ...
