Does Using CBD Hemp Oil Result in a Positive Drug Test for THC or Marijuana?

Whether you agree with it in principle or not, testing for illicit drug use is a reality for many workers in the United States. Drug testing is mandatory for federal employees, and although it isn’t required in the private sector, more employers are implementing some kind(s) of drug screening. When drug testing is mandated, employers almost always follow the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines because it puts them on solid legal ground. Typically, there is an overlap between testing guidelines and accepted cutoff levels for drugs and drug metabolites in confirmatory testing and screening. Because THC…

Virginia Considers Decriminalization and Cannabis Oil Legalization

The Virginia General Assembly will be considering several upcoming bills regarding the use of cannabis. State Senator Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria) has introduced a bill that would reduce the penalty for the possession of small amounts of cannabis from a criminal charge to a civil fine of up to $100. The current penalty in Virginia for having a small amount of cannabis is a criminal arrest, a possible six month driver’s license suspension, and admitting that you have a criminal history when applying for jobs. There are also three other bills on the docket regarding the use of cannabis oil for families…

Happy Hanukkah! 8 Crazy Strains for Making Hash Oil

Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. It celebrates a miracle that happened over 2,000 years ago when the smallest cruse of olive oil lasted for eight nights, shedding its light from a menorah after the temple had been destroyed. Much of society has changed in the millennia since the destruction of the temple, but in honor of Jewish traditions, we celebrate our affinity towards the brightest beacon in the cannabis landscape: concentrates. Similar to the Hanukkah miracle, just a small amount of hash oil can last for days or even weeks without you needing to return to your favorite dispensary. This…

Native Americans Given Permission to Grow & Sell Cannabis On Their Land

The United States Justice Department lifted cannabis prohibition on the federally-sanctioned lands of indigenous Americans. This means that tribes who wish to grow and sell cannabis have the freedom to do so within their territory, without risking retribution from the US government (with the exception of selling to minors and transportation into prohibited areas). However, a history of substance abuse among many Native American cultures is a source of concern, from which many tribes are likely to elect the continuation of the withstanding federal prohibition for preventative purposes. The US government has volunteered to continue providing enforcement for such instances, even in states like Colorado and Washington, where recreational sales are legal….

The amount of hemp being grown in Canada is rising with Alberta leading the way. Industrial hemp a multi-purpose crop. Farmers need to be licensed by Health Canada before to grow it. “I started growing hemp about six years ago with the interest of it being a super food,” said Rod Lanier. “It is high in mega oils and all the essentials.” Lanier was speaking during a tour put on by the Alberta Biomaterials Development Centre. Hemp Hearts, which are shelled hemp seeds with a highly concentrated balance of proteins, fats, vitamins and enzymes are a popular super food. “It…

Can Hemp Save Us From Global Warming?

Conceptually, cannabis and global warming share a few things in common. Both have been the subject of controversy for decades, polarizing everyone from politicians of the same party to members of the same family. Also, both have been distorted by those with a political agenda, whether it’s the supposed dangers of pot or the scientific consensus surrounding climate change. And that’s where another interesting commonality emerges, because the cannabis plant — specifically, the durable fiber called hemp that it produces — may well prove to be an essential resource for combating global warming. Climate Change 101 To buy into the…

Rookie Cookies: The New Wave Of Milder Marijuana Products

Recently, I followed Kevin Sabet, aka “the quarterback of the anti-legalization movement,” as he earned $21,000 touring Oregon to frighten our rural voters into opposing Measure 91, our legalization initiative. Two of his go-to scare lines are the tale of Levi Thamba, the 19-year-old exchange student who ate an entire marijuana-infused cookie and leaped to his death from a hotel balcony, and Maureen Dowd, the liberal New York Times columnist who was couch-locked by a marijuana-infused chocolate bar. “The response of the industry,” claims Sabet, “was to say, ‘oh, see, she was supposed to cut that chocolate bar into 16 pieces and just…
