Scientists have invented a Breathalyzer-like device that measures cannabis use

Scientists have invented a Breathalyzer-like device that measures cannabis use

FREDERICK FLORIN/AFP/GettyImages
A team of researchers in Pittsburgh have invented a small, boxlike device that fulfills the same function as a Breathalyzer, except for pot instead of alcohol. It works by detecting THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, on the user’s breath.
“Nanotechnology sensors can detect THC at levels comparable to or better than mass spectrometry, which is considered the gold standard for THC detection,” reads the official release from Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh.
The engineers behind the project started to develop the device in 2016, as use of weed was becoming legal in an increasing number of states — presumably with the intention of the device then being used by law enforcement to ensure safe and moderate consumption.

How CBD helped this former NBA all-star cope with PTSD and depression

How CBD helped this former NBA all-star cope with PTSD and depression

Paul Pierce lit up the NBA as an all-star for 19 years. Now he’s co-founder and CEO of The Truth CBD Remedies and the Vesper One vape available on Eaze Wellness. But it hasn’t all been a smooth ride for Pierce. In 2002, he was stabbed 11 times, a harrowing event that led him on a journey to discover cannabis for pain, depression, and PTSD. Pierce talks about how he went from being a CBD advocate to a CBD entrepreneur. He’s joined by business partner, Elliot Mermel.
JON: So Paul, let’s start with you. First of all, congratulations on the product. It’s very cool, and I’m happy that you are a part of the cannabis world.
PAUL: Oh man, thank you. I’m excited that I can be a part of this and just bring a stability to the marketplace, somebody who’s somewhat trustworthy and already has a name out there and a voice and a platform that people can trust.
JON: Yeah. It seems like more and more athletes are coming out, particularly in the CBD field, and really talking about how it’s helped and ..

‘It’s Russian roulette’: Vapes spiked with illegal drugs show dark side of CBD craze

Jay Jenkins says he hesitated when a buddy suggested they vape CBD.
“It’ll relax you,” the friend assured.
The vapor that Jenkins inhaled didn’t relax him. After two puffs, he ended up in a coma.
That’s because what he was vaping didn’t have any CBD, the suddenly popular compound extracted from the cannabis plant that marketers say can treat a range of ailments without getting users high. Instead, the oil was spiked with a powerful street drug.
Some operators are cashing in on the CBD craze by substituting cheap and illegal synthetic marijuana for natural CBD in vapes and edibles such as gummy bears, an Associated Press investigation has found.
The practice has sent dozens of people like Jenkins to emergency rooms over the last two years. Yet people behind spiked products have operated with impunity, in part because the business has boomed so fast that regulators haven’t caught up while drug enforcement agents have higher priorities.

Does your state prefer indica or sativa? New cannabis map reveals which strain is most popular

cbdinsider.com
When it’s time to pack a bowl, most people have one of three cannabis preferences to determine how the course of their day will go.
Should you go for an energetic high that will allow you to actually do the productive adult things you intended to check off the list today, courtesy of sativa? Or is it more of a day for Netflix and lounging around the house with your friend, indica?
