The rumours about hidden forces of darkness lurking behind the worldwide ban on cannabis just refuse to die. There is no proof at all of any worldwide cannabis conspiracy. The driving force behind the ban is latent European and North American racism, not economic interests as maintained, for example, by the cannabis activist Jack Herer.
Even though some people may claim otherwise, nobody has ever died from a cannabis overdose. Not even Snoop Dogg would be able to consume the quantity required to OD. However, anyone who has made space cake with an excessive amount of cannabis knows that too much cannabis can be very unpleasant.
Interview with Neil Woods: Former Undercover Drugs Squad Officer Talks Cannabis Legalisation and the War On Drugs
Neil Woods is an extraordinary person. He spent fourteen years living a double life, inhabiting the skin of a heroin and crack cocaine addict whist working as an undercover police officer. Now he’s the chairperson of LEAP UK, and a prominent campaigner for drug policy reform. Sensi Seeds interviewed him about cannabis legalisation and the war on drugs.
In order to be able to develop and regulate a drug, it is necessary to meet safety and efficiency requirements, in addition to passing certain clinical trials. After this, the drug is approved, commercialized and recognized as medical. For cannabis and other medicinal substances to be included in the current pharmacopoeia, new regulatory models are required.
Cannabis contains over 500 constituents. The most important of these are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), which both belong to the cannabinoid group. Unlike THC, CBD does not make you high. It does however offer great medicinal potential. That is one of the reasons that we have seen a real boom in CBD over the last few years.
After decades of relative tolerance towards Cannabis in Spain, the Constitutional Court decides that cannabis clubs are criminal. Years of government criminalizing strategy pay off. The national parliamentary debate can no longer be postponed.
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.
The production, sale and export of medicinal marijuana are strictly regulated. Despite this, patients know less about the contents and origins of their medication than recreational users. Why is this and what could be improved?
Gerbrand Korevaar is passionate about art and history, and turned his passion into his profession, working as a curator, researcher and writer.

At Sensi Seeds, we are celebrating the end of an eventful year full of interesting developments and new projects. Here is to you, and to the rest of the cannabis world.
In the US, the public image of cannabis is currently undergoing change. After legalisation, new products are being developed that are focusing on health and exercise. California is a step ahead of the rest. Yet again.
Clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CEDC) is a proposed spectrum disorder that has been implicated in a range of illnesses, including fibromyalgia, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome. So far, very little research has been conducted on this speculative disorder, but if it is found to exist, it could be responsible for these very common conditions as well as many related ones.
Each year, our goals remain the same. Sensi Seeds always strives to change the world of cannabis, and to support those who contribute to restoring the cannabis plant to its rightful place in society. In 2017, we met you, cannabis enthusiasts, all over the world. We introduced you to our brand new cannabis-inspired products. And of course, we released new strains that we know you are just as excited about as we are.
