In cannabis processing operations, safety systems are necessary to keep workers safe and used to maintain successful and normal operating conditions. As a business owner, you need to ensure your facilities comply with required safety codes. Let us discuss the differences between C1D1 and C1D2 to determine the proper classification for your facility.
Cannabis degradation is the natural process of decay of the cannabis plant. Immediately after the buds are harvested, the quality of the flower begins to change. Cannabinoids like THC convert to THC analogs (CBN), losing out on its original potency. However, this natural process is becoming an increasingly popular option in the removal of THC in hemp products.
After the 2018 Farm Bill was passed, hemp production ramped up, creating a burgeoning CBD market. Now, hemp producers are synthesizing a hemp-derived CBD isolate to create delta-8 THC, a minor cannabinoid found in cannabis. Delta-8 THC’s mild intoxicating qualities and long-lasting relief are making it an instant hit among cannabis consumers, but is it legal?
