Weekend Weirdness: Which Animal’s Pee Smells Like Cannabis?

The maned wolf looks more like a fox/dog hybrid than something you’d see CGI’d into Game of Thrones, but its urine scent has given it the nickname of yet another mammal that’s often used to describe the odor of a certain plant. Also known as the “skunk wolf,” the maned wolf’s urine contains pyrazines, a combination of carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen that separates from its urine and brings a pungent, familiar smell to the air.

Hemp Oil Versus CBD Oil: What’s The Difference?

By Katie Rucke  @katierucke | July 15, 2014 Confusion amongst the public on how exactly hemp oil differs from cannabidiol, or CBD, oil, has prompted the nonprofit Hemp Industries Association to issue a statement explaining the difference between the oils in order to ensure that consumers — specifically, medical marijuana patients — are not misled about the intended uses.
