Cannabinoid Science 101: What is THCV?

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is one of the most medically important of the known cannabinoids. It is thought to act as an antagonist of the cannabinoid receptors at low doses, but surprisingly, it may act as an agonist at high doses, giving effects similar to THC.

Catalonia legalizes cannabis, boosts morale among cannabis associations

The autonomous region of Catalonia, Spain, has legalised cannabis. After a Parliament vote of 118 to 9, the system introduced by the country’s famous Cannabis Clubs will finally benefit from a proper, legal framework. 67, 500 signatures Back in 2014, the Catalonian government was asked to consider a set of regulations for legal cannabis, and for the network of cannabis associations Spain is famous for. Back then, the project quickly died down for lack of agreement between all involved parties. A year later, “La Rosa Verda”, a group spontaneously formed for the sole purpose of promoting the aforementioned legalisation project, managed to reach out to 67, 500 citizens. Their online petition gathered as many signatures, allowing the group, constituted mostly …

Cannabis News Network: It’s darkest before dawn

Medicinal cannabis is becoming more and more accepted the world over, as an increasing number of countries is moving towards a health-focused approach to the plant. Good news for patients, one would say. But the fight isn’t over yet, as shown in this report from Cannabis News Network. CBD can be obtained in many countries in which cannabis is still illegal. Its medicinal benefits have been proven over and over again, making it a somewhat accessible medicine for those who need it. But not for all of them. This is for instance still an issue for Irish citizen Vera Twomey,  who has been fighting for CBD oil access for her daughter, who suffers from Dravet Syndrome. On the other hand, …

Facebook continues to delete cannabis pages, but why?

To our surprise and disappointment, Facebook has removed several posts from our wall! We investigated thoroughly and discovered that other cannabis companies have had the same problem. So what’s behind this purge on perfectly legitimate businesses? Read on. In early 2016, a wave of action by Facebook removed numerous cannabis-related pages from their platform. In the US, both dispensaries and fully legal recreational cannabis outlets had their pages shut down with no notice and little explanation. Now it could be Europe’s turn for potential cannabis social media deletion, if recent communication between Sensi Seeds and Facebook is anything to go by. Just like most businesses, Sensi Seeds has a Facebook page. It’s a base for our online community, a useful …

What should I do if stopped at a traffic checkpoint?

In Germany, many people lose their driving licence without ever driving while high. Read here how you can avoid that. Germany is by no means the strictest country when it comes to punishing the possession of cannabis or dealing in it, and nowadays it has one of the most progressive laws on the use of medicinal cannabis. But when it comes to driving licences, Germany is more repressive than almost any other country in the world. This was not always the case, but since the decriminalisation of small quantities of cannabis in the mid-1990s, driving-licence offences appear to act as a kind of surrogate for minor cannabis offences. Because Germany punishes not just anyone who drives under the influence of …
