Let’s be honest: there’s a lot of mistrust and suspicion when it comes to the corporate world, the banking world, turning its attention to cannabis. The organiser of the Cannabis Capital Convention, Michael Kraland, admits it: “here come the suits; what’s going to happen?” is the question on the lips of everyone involved. So what can we predict will happen?
Perhaps the most profound, yet trickiest to describe, difference between indica and sativa cannabis strains is their effect.

One recurring issue that has appeared on social media, on various blogs, and even in newspapers, is the misconception that cannabidiol, or CBD, oil is the same thing as what has become known as full spectrum cannabis oil, or FSO.

There are few things worse than lovingly nurturing a crop of cannabis through vegetation and flowering, only to have mould strike in the last weeks before harvest. Unfortunately, this span of time is exactly when the most common types of cannabis rot and mould infections usually occur. Knowing the reasons for this also suggests how to prevent them occurring.
Even some seasoned cannabis users have never heard of charas. Among those who have, there are still plenty who have never had the chance to consume charas. All would love to experience the creamy deliciousness of India’s most sought-after cannabis export. So what is charas, and how is it made?
