Some fun Cannabis Facts for you…

You Can’t Overdose on Cannabis

Every hemp plant could save 12 trees

Let’s just say this: It’s ridiculous that the world isn’t growing more hemp. Hemp, weed’s non-psychoactive sibling, can easily be made into biodiesel, paper products, and hemp concrete. Switching to hemp can dramatically cut down on our need for timber and our use of fossil fuels. This plant is one of the more sustainable choices out there.


Legalizing cannabis in all states would earn $10+ billion in tax revenue

Legalizing cannabis would save state and federal governments more than a decent chunk of change. It would also generate billions in tax revenue. The US and federal government spends on average $17.5 billion each year on cannabis prohibition. Imagine if we were making money of this plant instead of fighting it?

160+ million people in the world use cannabis

That’s 2.5% of the global population. Cultures around the world have been using the cannabis plant in some way or another for centuries. It’s no surprise, then, to find that it’s currently the most commonly used illicit drug in the world.

Today’s flower is 57-67% more potent than herb from the ’70s

The invention of the hydroponics gardening system may have been the best thing every introduced to the cannabis industry. The herb of the 60s and 70s was nowhere near what it is today. In fact, it was common for people to smoke stem and fan leaf bits instead of bud. This is just statistics though, ask someone from the 70s to compare then and now and let us know…

28 U.S. states now have some sort of legal policies for cannabis

That’s right: over half of US states now have some type of relaxation in cannabis policy. In some states, it’s only the legalization of CBD oil. In other’s it’s decriminalization. Eight states and Washington D.C. have voted to legalize recreational cannabis, however, not all of the states have implemented legalization.

There are 111 different cannabinoids in cannabis

Cannabinoids are the unique chemicals found in the cannabis plant. THC and CBD are the most common cannabinoids in cannabis. THC and CBD may be the main stars of the cannabinoid world, but they’re far from the only beneficial compounds found in the plant. Other cannabinoids like CBN and CBG are known to have medicinal effects. Imagine what we’ll find when we research the other 108?
