The cannabis industry has been growing as regulations continue to change and the demand for cannabis infused products are increasing. We have been working with many cannabis companies who are working towards a more scientific approach when formulating their cannabis products (learn why it is essential).
On August 5, 2019 at 10:00 am PST at Oaksterdam University in Oakland California, our Technical Specialists will be giving a talk on cannabis extracts and where viscosity is important.

Recently I have been using polyurethane resins for sculpting and casting projects and noticed an interesting term on all of my materials: Pot life. This is something that you see in all kinds of applications from epoxies, silicone, sealants, and building materials. A cursory definition of the term indicated that it was the working life of the material – the cutoff time when you can no longer make adjustments or clean up your projects. However, I found that the material was still very workable beyond the pot life time – in fact for some applications it even worked better.
According to a GEN – genetic engineering & biotechnology article, researchers found that the consumption of coffee stimulates the complex network of neurotransmitters, also known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS), much like that of cannabis. ECS consists of a biological structure composed of endocannabinoids, which are essentially the "small molecules that activate the cannabinoid receptors" (Jikomes). ECS is a system that is necessary in maintaining homeostasis on a cellular level. Furthermore, ECS is also responsible as it acts as a regulator for stress response, appetite, addiction, energy, and much more (GEN).
As marijuana use becomes more mainstream, the use of vaporizer pens or vape pens as a delivery system for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is steadily increasing in popularity. Vape pens are not like your classic bongs, as seen in some old school Cheech and Chong movies, but are in fact a high-tech device; a high-tech device where precision and accuracy are critical to performance.
