Finding an Opportunity with Global Cannabinoid Solutions

Finding an Opportunity with Global Cannabinoid Solutions

Cannabis Industry
We recently chatted with cannabis industry consultant Christopher Tasker, the Chief Executive Officer of Global Cannabinoid Solutions - a cannabinoid consultancy that optimizes business and industry with cannabinoid science by Identifying weaknesses and opportunities to maximize efficiency and security. We leverage this knowledge from the frontiers of cannabis science to promote a sustainable and evidence-based cannabis industry. What is your biggest challenge these days? The largest issue facing our clients and associates is the lack of expertise and qualified knowledge in the industry. We have been inundated with support requests but are having to take on work on a first-come-first-served basis. Much of the industry is facing very basic challenges, in my eyes, the Covid lockdown has only heightened the opportunity within the industry with a whole wave of innovative…

Cannabis Industry
We chatted with Rachel Zedeck, Founder at WIKID FARMS. WIKID is a family farm promoting ORGANIC and ethical farm foods including free-range boer goats & sun-grown medicinal cannabis. Promoting investment of authentic and climate-smart farming in Central Portugal. What is your biggest challenge these days?  Gaps in policy and regulatory framework ... delivery of services from our regulator INFARMED. See the article I published on 11 March "Story of a Portuguese Cannabis Farmer" How is Cannabis Industry impacted during the lockdown?  To start, there is no real 'industry' in Portugal, at least not yet.  We have not come together yet to advocate or collaborate.  I hope this will motivate us to help drive a national strategy for both ethical production but also retail formulation and distribution of both pharma grade…

State of Cannabis Industry with Derrick Bergman

State of Cannabis Industry with Derrick Bergman

Cannabis Industry
We also caught up with Derrick Bergman, GROWLANDS cofounder, to talk about the state of the Cannabis Industry. After 17 years, why does The Netherlands need a Cannabis event? It's actually 13 years, the last time we had a cannabis fair here in the Netherlands was in 2007. The concept of the cannabis fair is a Dutch invention; we've had the Highlife Fair here since the early nineties. Long before Spannabis, Cannafest and all the other European cannabis fairs started out. The political climate in the Netherlands has been very negative for cannabis since about 2000, with ever stricter rules and restrictions and increased repression of homegrowing and growshops. This is the reason the Highlife Fair decided to call it quits in 2007. We think the time is now right…

Seed to Sale – Dutch Passion Talks Cannabis

Seed to Sale – Dutch Passion Talks Cannabis

Health
Recently, we chatted with Jouke Piepenbrink, the Chief Marketing Officer at Dutch Passion (www.dutch-passion.com and www.seedstockers.com) to get his take on the impact of the Coronavirus on the Cannabis Industry. What is your biggest challenge these days?   Getting all our orders shipped in time while keeping the people working in the warehouses at minimum levels. How is Cannabis Industry impacted during the lockdown? Dispensaries are declared essential in the USA. Coffeeshops were closed for 24 hours in Holland. When policymakers saw the effects they decided very fast that the Coffee Shops are vital and need to stay open, shops could re-open after less than 24 hours. This gives a lot of confidence to the cannabis market but also gives us a responsibility, we are a part of normal society and…

Cannabis Industry Today with Marguerite Arnold

Cannabis Industry Today with Marguerite Arnold

Health
My go-to source for info is always Marguerite Arnold. She is a prolific writer on the Cannabis Industry, a cannabis entrepreneur and a leading force for patient advocacy, legalization, and regulatory controls and standards. So naturally, I called her to get the view from the ground zero. What is your biggest challenge these days? Staying safe, and focussing on the next steps. How is the Cannabis Industry impacted during the lockdown? The industry got hit with a major sideswipe. Yes pharmacies are on the front lines in Germany, yes they are lifting delivery restrictions and calling dispensaries "vital" industry in the US, but ultimately, the industry got handed a major defeat with the delay of reclassification by the UN on March 2. Should they be an essential service? This industry…

Effects of Cannabis on Your Body and Brain

Effects of Cannabis on Your Body and Brain

Health
To some extent, one of what marijuana indeed does to your brain, we followed the disclosure of the cannabinoid receptor. Finding the receptor is the initial phase in deciding how smoking causes a high. The subsequent stage is to make sense of where cannabinoid receptors are and what they're doing. In 1989, the year after the cannabinoid receptor was found, Miles Herkenham drove a gathering of analysts at the National Establishment of Emotional wellbeing to discover where cannabinoid receptors were situated in mind. He initially gathered cerebrums of three expired people whose bodies had been given to science. He cut the minds so he could evaluate what number of cannabinoid receptors were in every locale. At that point, he named CP-55,990, a similarly manufactured rendition of THC used to find…
