Cannabis + Genetics Presented by Phylos Bioscience
Why does one variety of Blue Dream make you feel super relaxed, while another is absolutely energizing? What’s the deal with every other strain being named OG Kush? And where the heck did Acapulco Gold go?
Phylos will join us to shed light on the diversity of cannabis and why strain names have become so tangled. In 2014, Phylos launched the Cannabis Evolution Project in partnership with Rob Desalle, a curator and phylogeneticist at the American Museum of Natural History. Over two years, thousands of ancient and modern cannabis samples were collected from around the world, and today serve as the foundation for the Phylos Galaxy — a public tool designed to bring visibility, transparency, and consistency to the cannabis industry.
Dr. Alisha Holloway, VP of Data Science and designer of the Phylos Galaxy, will discuss why open data matters and Phylos’ ongoing work to map the cannabis genome. Carolyn White will join us to offer some tips and tricks to navigate the galaxy, as well as discussing why Phylos Certified cannabis matters to consumers and the industry as a whole.
If you’ve ever tried a flower you loved only to never see it again, come and see how the Phylos Galaxy can help you learn about its genetic heritage and discover similar varieties.
Phylos is a Portland, Oregon-based genomic science company serving cannabis growers around the world. Our catalogue of DNA testing services and breeding programs are designed to protect and document plant diversity while enabling growers and breeders of all sizes to thrive.

Wednesday, February 28 at 3 PM – 4:30 PM99 Main St, Franklin, Massachusetts 02038
Event will be held in the Golder Room
Marijuana was legalized for adult-use in Massachusetts in November 2016, though there is still much uncertainty as to what exactly is legal and what’s not. Can anyone consume marijuana? Where does one legally consume? What is the possession limit? What’s an Edible? Do state laws apply on campus?
Join us for an informative event detailing the changes in our marijuana laws, awareness about safe and responsible marijuana consumption, and how you can get involved with local marijuana policy in your area. This is a free event open to Dean College Students only.
Hosted by Students for Sensible Drug Policy and the Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council.
MRCC is a non-profit organization focused on the safety of marijuana consumers in Massachusetts. Their mission is to bridge the gaps between communities, local businesses, and legislators to achieve a safe, informed, and transparent cannabis industry.http://weedallaboutit.info/event/the-price-of-starting-a-cannabis-business/

rd/ r.php?sid=5&pub=310146&lpid =106
Michele Ross, PhD is a neuroscientist who’s led some of Green Flower’s most popular courses on Brain Health and Cannabis. In this class, she’ll delve into the ways cannabis can be used to treat various autoimmune disorders.
Beginning with an overview of the body’s largest neurotransmitter network, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Michele will illustrate how cannabis interacts with this system to maintain homeostatic health and balance.
She’ll also break down the different compounds and components of cannabis, why they’re safer than opiates and other pharmaceuticals, and the various ways they can be ingested – including why raw cannabis is gaining prominence in treating autoimmune conditions.
You’ll discover new insights and promising breakthroughs toward the treatment of these disorders as Dr. Ross covers:
-Introduction and exploration of the Endocannabinoid System.
-Components of cannabis including cannabinoids and terpenes.
-Why cannabis is safer than opiates and how it can be considered an “exit” drug.
-How cannabis is used for Multiple Sclerosis.
-Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with cannabis.
-How cannabis can be used to treat Lupus.
-How cannabis is used for Fibromyalgia.
Dr. Ross also presents guidelines for further research and pharmaceutical development into the use of cannabis to treat, inhibit and possibly prevent the onset of autoimmune disorders and why physicians and disease nonprofit organizations need to step up educational initiatives to explore cannabis as a safer, more effective alternative.
This promises to be another insightful and information-packed presentation, so mark your calendars and register now.http://weedallaboutit.info/event/products-on-the-shelf/

Join us for a keynote address by Cannabis Control Commissioner Shaleen Title, followed by expert panel discussions on the future of the Marijuana Business in Massachusetts:
A dynamic and controversial industry is only months from launching in the Bay State. The regulations are complex and the barriers to entry formidable. How can we make sense of the arrival of recreational marijuana, an industry that may soon exceed $1 billion annually?
The State House News Forum will hold its second Massachusetts Marijuana Summit on March 2, bringing together entrepreneurs, thought leaders and regulators to explain the opportunities and challenges of recreational marijuana in Massachusetts. Once again, we’re assembling expert panel discussions on the nuances of this soon-to-bloom industry. The Summit will provide an in-depth examination of the core issues of emerging regulations, the potential consequences of a new federal enforcement posture, and the divergent approach of various municipalities as they weigh the pros and cons of legalization.
We’ll also explore the operational difficulties faced by cannabis business professionals, including accessing capital, banking, accounting and acquiring and training talent.
