When discussing cannabis, it is important to remember that the line between science and folklore can at times be fickle. In the context of cannabis as a treatment, for instance, there is only one direct scientific source (THC found in ashes) that cannabis was used as a medicine, around 400 AD.
Setting the stage for the final aspect of the cultivation process begins with properly drying cannabis. For anyone familiar with the plant, it’s almost inevitable that they have come across wet flowers, also known as buds, or have wondered whether freshly harvested plants can be consumed. The answer to the latter is, simply, no. And, while possible, it’s not recommended to consume sobbing wet flowers either.
The trajectory that cannabis has taken in the last 20 years is nothing short of revolutionary. From a culture that once existed on the fringe of society, cannabis has transformed into a veritable industry that is projected to generate billions of dollars. Along the way, it has also shifted the perspective and perception of non-believers like a revelation, and has become the subject of significant scientific and commercial interest.
Cannabis being offered as a college course could well have served as the punch line to a series of jokes just some years back. Even idealists with a penchant for forward-thinking would likely have balked at the idea of higher education ever including programs like cannabis cultivation and the basics of cannabis business. But, always one to defy the odds, the plant has found acceptance in recent years among academics, and it is now being taught as a topic of study in schools across the globe.
The Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) are the rules that govern Canada’s medical cannabis program. Instituted in the summer of 2016, the ACMPR outline the particulars of patient access, the principle role of licensed producers (LPs), and the transitional provisions added to, and subtracted from, the country’s former regulatory systems.
