Company Mapping Cannabis DNA Could Make For Better CBD Oil

A Colorado company says mapping the cannabis plant's genome can help sort out the legitimate claims about products such as CBD Oil from the bogus. “DNA, of course I’m biased because it’s what I do, but it doesn’t lie. It really is a way to just sort of clear a lot of the b.s.,” said CJ Schwartz, chief executive officer of Sunrise Genetics. “The excessive claims are really doing a disservice to the plant or the potential of the plant and the science surrounding that.” According to Bloomberg (via The Cannabist): A deeper understanding of genetics means companies will be able to figure...

Will Jeff Sessions’ war on weed whack CBD Oil sales?

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is seeking to turn the clock back by reversing Obama-era guidelines discouraging federal marijuana prosecutions in states that have legalized weed. But Sessions' effort spill over onto CBD oil? The short answer is: It shouldn't, since CBD oil won't get you high and has numerous potential benefits. The longer answer is that it's not even clear how Sessions' directive issued last week will affect marijuana sales. "The Justice Department's new directive leaves the legal status of cannabis up to 93 US Attorneys," Rep. Jared Polis, a Colorado Democrat who's seeking to become the governor of his home...

Hemp oil helps drive production boom

Hemp oil's growing popularity is a factor in the spread of hemp farming from state to state. Wisconsin made itself the most recent state to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp. The legislature there voted unanimously in favor of the crop and Gov. Scott Walker signed the bill. Wisconsin Ag Connection reports: The legislation specifics that anyone with a prior drug conviction would not be eligible to grow hemp. In addition, the crop would not be allowed to contain more than 0.3 percent THC, an active ingredient in marijuana. Rural lawmakers and farm groups have been pushing the concept of hemp production in...

Researchers look to uncover hemp genetics

Researchers from UC-Davis are teaming up with Colorado biotech Front Range Biosciences to study the genome of industrial hemp. Merry Jane reports: The UC-Davis project, led by viticulturist and enologist Dario Cantu, will only sequence the genes for hemp, a variety of cannabis with less than 0.3 percent THC (read: it won’t get anyone high). “We are now excited to have the opportunity to study the genome of hemp,” said Cantu in an Oct. 26 press release. “Decoding its genome will allow us to gain new insight into the genetic bases of complex pathways of secondary metabolism in plants.” Cantu’s lab is only handling...
