The Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce (C4) on Wednesday emphasized its commitment to advancing responsible, common sense labeling of marijuana products in order to prevent accidental ingestion and promote child safety.

“If we’re truly interested in protecting our children and encouraging responsible cannabis use, it is absolutely imperative that we operate on facts over fear,” said Tyler Henson, President of C4. “We cannot allow the ‘newness’ of edible marijuana products to cause false panic and cloud our judgment or our lawmaking.”

As such, the C4 Chamber announced it strongly supports legislation that will increase the effectiveness of cannabis packaging by reducing “white noise” and drawing attention to child safety through proper storage.

Current label regulations require information that does not allow for the average-sized product packaging to have the room to provide important warnings in large enough font to be effective.

By advocating for highlighted warnings on packaging, like “Keep the Products out of Sight and Reach of Children” and to “Keep this Product in Its Original Packaging”, the C4 Chamber joins other government and health agencies in echoing this step as the most solvent reform.

U.S.: Medical Cannabis Institute Announces Clinical Cannabinoid Medicine Curriculum

The Medical Cannabis Institute on Wednesday announced what it called " the first online, medical cannabis curriculum." The curriculum presents, in sequential order, a series of 12 courses designed to take a practicing clinician from the basics of the plant, its history and the underlying physiologic (endocannabinoid) system to the pharmacology and clinical practice of medical cannabis.

The curriculum is provided by the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), an educational and scientific society of qualified physicians dedicated to the expansion of knowledge on the medical use of cannabis.

Healthcare professionals can claim up to 12 CME credits (AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™), receiving a certificate of competency in clinical cannabinoid medicine upon curriculum completion.

"To date, there have been workshops or seminars on a variety of medical cannabis topics, but this is the first time that clinicians can find a pre-packaged set of courses that takes the clinician from the fundamentals all the way through clinical case study reviews," said Deborah Malka, MD, PhD, course director at SCC.

This all-in-one, eLearning curriculum can also help clinical staff within a hospital or health system attain a consistent, baseline understanding of the science behind medical cannabis – closing an education gap in today's standard medical training.

Washington: Premium Cannabis Infusions Usher In New Era of Marijuana Edibles

It’s been nearly two years since voters in Washington state passed Initiative 502. And it’s been more than two months since legalized retail cannabis finally became available in the state. Yet, something has remained missing – something consumers have been so eagerly awaiting, according to the Seattle-based Db3 Corporation.

Zoots premium cannabis infusions are now available at select licensed retailers in Washington state, "bringing with them," the company says, "the promise of changing the way people think about marijuana edibles." Zoots concentrated liquid drops, energy drinks and lozenges all feature proprietary blends, made with the highest quality ingredients, that the company says give consumers the power to control their own experiences, safely and enjoyably.

“This day has been a long time in the making, and we couldn’t be happier for the people of Washington State now that it is finally here,” said Michael Devlin, co-founder and president Db3, the maker of Zoots. “We worked long and hard to dot all our I’s and cross all our T’s so consumers can be assured of top quality edibles. To finally be able to bring such edibles to the market is a testament to our team’s hard work.”

With concerns in Colorado and Washington about dosage, THC levels and transparency, Zoots is the brand consumers can turn to when they want the freedom to control their own experiences, according to Devlin. Zoots proprietary blends bring something unique to the market, including packaging that provides consumers clear instructions on both serving size and usage, according Db3.
