a breath of fresh air

“Safety regulations, tracking, reporting, finances, and so much more goes into ensuring the transparency of the cannabis sector.” It’s been a long, strange year since summer 2020. We’ve endured the restrictions of the pandemic and now we’re starting to see signs of change. Faces are emerging from under their masks, bars and restaurants are bustling, and there’s some semblance of normalcy. Not that inhibitive “new normal” that wasn’t normal at all, but the familiar feel of summer’s past. At Cannabis & Tech Today, we’re celebrating the feel-good vibes of the season with an in-depth look at concentrates and compliance. Did you know concentrates are the main ingredient in all the innovative cannabis products on the shelves? Tinctures, vapes, edibles, and lotions wouldn’t be possible without extracted cannabinoids. For industry professionals, maintaining compliance is…

extracting answers

Isolating and refining cannabinoids is an exact science. There are thermodynamics and a lot of chemistry involved that, frankly, fly outside of this writer’s depth. To understand the role of accurate temperature control in reducing process times, recovering solvents, and improving purity, Cannabis & Tech Today spoke with Georg Kiefer, CEO of Huber. His company pioneered the development of closed loop systems for creating concentrates. These systems prevent solvents from being exposed to the air, allow them to be reused, and reduce the risk of explosions. Huber has been specializing in high precision temperature control solutions for more than fifty years. Cannabis & Tech Today: What are some of the major challenges facing extractors? George Kiefer: Long process times, low solvent recovery, and product impurities are some of the challenges faced by…

continental crisis

Cannabis reform is spreading across the European continent faster than ever before, which is great news for cannabis consumers, entrepreneurs, patients, and governments. Many European governments waste a ridiculous amount of money every year enforcing cannabis prohibition. Thankfully, the walls of cannabis prohibition are crumbling, and while no country in Europe has fully legalized cannabis for adult use, several are on a path to fully legalize sooner rather than later. Many are pursuing reform measures, and in the Netherlands, a regulated adult-use industry pilot program is ramping up. Italy’s Supreme Court recently ruled that cannabis prohibition is unconstitutional and tasked lawmakers to craft and approve a cannabis legalization measure. Unfortunately, legislators have dragged their feet thus far. However, full legalization is likely inevitable in Italy, with some legal protections for consumers already…
