Hemp Embassy Headlines Issue 592 Jan 5 2024

Hulloo and Welcome to 2024!

Are all those resolutions in place?
I’m sure people from all around the world have made resolutions to love our little plant just that little more 🙂

Headlines may look a little different this week, I’m experimenting, not sure how that will pan out so I hope you enjoy all the same.

Some Highlights in the News this week:

“Clever Leaves Scores Australian Cannabis GMP Certification”.
That’s a pretty big story. The new GMP certification is a prerequisite for the manufacturing and commercialization of cannabis products.

I imagine there must have been some real hurdles to get that certification, I do indeed hope it’s not all smoke and mirrors and really is for the benefit of our local economy…

Clever Leaves’ facility boasts 108,000 kg per year of dry flower extraction capacity. The company points out western operators produce cannabis for around 2 dollars a gram.

“Our capital and operating efficiencies allow us to produce cannabis product for 20 cents a gram – 90 per cent cheaper”.

$2 a gram, OOF, that’s some serious talk.
If they can truly achieve this, all power to them, we will watch with intent.

This is one of my favourite topics when talking about Cannabis.

“Calls for new approach to medicinal cannabis in workplaces”.

As someone who struggled with this myself it’s nice to see it being put front and centre.

Last mention.

“US Veterans Back Medical Cannabis Access”.

I think we could all see the importance of this in this current era regardless of where it’s happening.

As the son of a veteran and someone that uses CBD for his own health I can assure you this is probably one of the most important steps for Soldiers returning from conflict.

Good Blessings for the New Year to You and Yours,

Thanks for Reading,
