Hemp Embassy Headlines Issue 589 Dec 15 2023


Greetings and Salutations from Nimbin!

It’s been pretty hot here of late but I guess we are seeing that everywhere.

Days seem to go forever when the sun goes down at 9pm.

Best wishes to those preparing for cyclones, fires or anything else Australia has to throw at us.

The Cannabis Reform debate still continues in Parliament.

There’s some great facts outlined in the first story in AU/NZ News.

Business is still on the up, looks like no holding back New York now.

The results really do speak for themselves. See more in World News.

In the Culture section there are a couple of new shopfronts doing things a bit differently and adding their own inherent flair to their consumers’ market. I love all these mini cultures spawning from what is a plant we all love to share.

How about being a Cannabis Tester?

“The Christchurch company has begun advertising for the position, saying it needs someone to be part of their “quality-control programme”.

Boy, I wouldn’t want to be the person reading all those resumes 🙂

This is a good story, ”Jackson-based cannabis lab conducted testing of legal weed products. See the results”.

There’s been many ongoing questions about the quality of cannabis that is circulated.

Not to say it is the same everywhere but nonetheless it feels like the constant regulation for testing is nearly mute for the sheer fact the results are likely to be inconsistent from crop to crop, plant to plant, even, bud to bud.

“Jackson-based cannabis testing lab announced Tuesday that potentially deadly toxins have been detected in over-the-counter cannabis products widely available throughout Mississippi.”

One of my favourite things about Cannabis is the Science. This story was great and kinda threw up a different side to how TERPS work, are formed and function. Worth a read, you can find it in Health and Education.

Be Safe out there, the world gone nuts, as always,

Thanks for Reading,
