Did FDA Just Approve CBD and THC as GRAS?

Let’s push the Overton Window over to our side. So many use it against themselves, such as suggesting that which your opponent would, or arguing in advance using your opponent’s position as though it were immutable. One liberal Congressman from a marijuana state even suggested putting marijuana into the BATF. It’s like offering a something for … Continue reading "Did FDA Just Approve CBD and THC as GRAS?" ...

Push Back on FDA Wish Lists

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking every pronouncement by FDA is settled law etched in granite. Instead, think of it as what it really is: wish-lists by unelected over-reaching bureaucrats testing the waters of public opinion with often-unconstitutional (Schedule 1 for Cannabis) ideas designed to reward them and their buddies (Big Pharma). They want … Continue reading "Push Back on FDA Wish Lists" ...

1972: Prop 19 in California

Some of us cut our activism teeth in 1972, with the first California Proposition 19 to legalize Marijuana. Before I could even vote I was explaining it to people going into stores. I’m sure there were more like me, some still around. The 1972 California Marijuana Initiative appeared as Proposition 19 on the ballot for … Continue reading "1972: Prop 19 in California" ...
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" ...

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?" ...
