Godfather of Cannabis Research

Weed News
While Dr. Mechoulam may be relatively unknown outside of the cannabis community, the Godfather of Cannabis Research is a legend to those that have dedicated their lives to ending cannabis prohibition and opening up the medicinal possibilities of the cannabis plant. The Israeli researcher’s accomplishments are enough to fill up several lifetimes: the first to isolate (some say “discover”) Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC; establishing the structure of cannabidiol (CBD); identified the brain’s first endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide; and discovered a second endogenous compound, named 2-AG. And he’s not finished yet!

On March 1, Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced he’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Like many in the crowded Democrat field of candidates, he appears to have been advised that campaigns in this cycle need to support marijuana legalization. There are reasons to doubt his sincerity.

Inslee was elected governor in 2012. Washington voters also approved I-502 that year legalizing marijuana in the Evergreen State. Inslee opposed I-502, which may have cost him votes. Luckily for him, his opponent also was against the measure.


AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine’s governor has signed a bill designed to make clear that production and sale of hemp-derived food products are allowable in the state. Democratic Rep. Craig Hickman, of Winthrop, introduced the bill earlier this year after guidance from state regulators to retailers to stop sales of food products containing the hemp derivative cannabidiol, or CBD.

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – The Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control issued a notice to retailers Thursday, Mar. 21. They say businesses must stop selling all products containing Cannabidiol (CBD.) The ATC Commissioner says in the last few months the office has been inundated with complaints that some CBD products have a trace of THC, the component in marijuana that gets people high. “At this point, quite frankly, ATC and State Police can’t pull every single product off the shelf to test it and see what’s in it,” said Marine-Lombard.

Two bills that would legalize industrial hemp are working their way through the Missouri General Assembly. The House Committee on Agriculture Policy passed its version of the bill authored by state Rep. Rick Francis, R-Perryville, 18-0 March 14. Tuesday the House Rules Administrative Oversight committee passed the bill 6-0.


Nebraska farmers could grow industrial hemp again, and CBD products would be legalized under a bill that was advanced without dissent Thursday to the full Legislature by the Agriculture Committee, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

The bill, introduced by Sen. Justin Wayne of Omaha, would allow for the cultivation, harvesting, handling, marketing and processing of hemp, as allowed by the recently passed federal farm bill.

Quarles also said Monday that more than 50,000 acres (20,234 hectares) have been approved for Kentucky hemp production in 2019, more than triple the approved acreage in 2018. The number of approved hemp grower applicants for 2019 is set to be 1,047, nearly five times higher than in 2018.

The state House voted 151-5 on Friday to give final approval to the legislation, House Bill 213.
Georgia would join 41 states that already have a hemp program. It’s used to make CBD, which is legal in the United States if it contains less than 0.3 percent THC.
The next step is for farmers to purchase the seed which cost about $1,000 and then plant it. Pate says hemp could be growing in Alabama by mid-April. 

South Carolina  

The law previously allowed only 40 permits for up to 40 acres. Last year there were 162 farmers that applied for the state’s 2019 industrial hemp program. Under the new law anyone who previously applied for a 2019 grower permit will be eligible to grow hemp in South Carolina as long as they pass a state and federal background check.

On April 5, the Texas Department of State Health Services will no longer classify hemp as a “Schedule I” drug, a highly restricted group of substances that includes LSD, heroin and cocaine. The government lists a substance in that category if it’s considered to have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use.
