A team of researchers have created a ‘hemp scanner’ that can determine the level of THC in cannabis plants instantly, without damaging any of the product.

In 2019 a flavonoid of cannabis – Caflanone (FBL-03G) – was granted Orphan drug status by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Now, trials using the flavonoid to treat pancreatic cancer are anticipated to begin in the spring.

A newly discovered cannabis compound has been shown in the lab to potentially be 30 times more potent than THC, the most studied psychoactive compound in marijuana.

The director of the National Institute of Health explained that federal laws make it very hard to study marijuana in the U.S.

Hemp might prove more useful to bees than humans, and that’s saying a lot.

At the turn of the new year, a team of Italian scientists announced the discovery of two new cannabinoids found in marijuana.
