The ever-controversial legal status of cannabis has become a hot topic as of late. Of course, this has to do with many countries having taken steps towards the legalisation of the plant, despite decades of intense Reefer Madness. In 2018, only two countries have fully legalised cannabis: Uruguay and Canada.
Assiduous readers of our blog are no strangers to the long-term relationship between Sensi Seeds and the UFCM ICare, an eminent association based in Alsace, France. UFCM ICare’s main mission is to facilitate the growth of the link between patients and doctors in France and beyond. Every year, their symposium gathers healthcare professionals, researchers, and patients, for a day of highly informative conferences. The theme: the use of cannabinoids in medicine.
June 12, 2018 was not exactly a typical day for Frisian couple Tabe Koopmans and Brigitte Boomsma. That day, they and their home became the subject of quite the police raid, during which their cannabis plants and cuttings were uncovered and confiscated. But the story doesn’t stop here: they now live in their cowshed, because their home has been foreclosed by their town’s municipality.
For the first time, UFCM ICare (French-speaking Association for Cannabinoids in Medicine) will host its symposium during springtime, in ‘Université de La Sorbonne’. Since its creation, the association has gathered medical professionals from all over the world, for them to learn from each other, and stay up-to-date on the use of cannabinoids in modern medicine.
If you are a European citizen, you are probably aware of the fact that France is not the most lenient country when it comes to cannabis and its consumers. Multiple changes of governments over the last decades didn’t exactly bring positive change on the matter. This is why at times, the weakest beacon of hope can make one’s day.
It is no secret that HempFlax, Sensi Seeds’ beloved sister company, has been noticeably active as of recent years. Hemp is finally rising to the status it rightfully deserves, and it is of the utmost importance to us that the multi-faceted plant is put forward at every opportunity. This time it’s all about Oude Pekela, the Dutch city in which the original HempFlax factory is located, that can soon boast having its very own Hemp Design Factory.
Cannabinoids are naturally present in plants of the Cannabis Sativa L. species. We ingest them when consuming cannabis or hemp – more or less depending on what exactly is consumed, and how. The human body also produces cannabinoids, and there are many ways we are still discovering their properties, benefits, and manifestations.
