Just like the U.S., Europe will also have to figure out how to deal with the growing trend of Delta-8 cannabis products, and it’s clear that the controversy is only just beginning. 

There is a new cannabinoid in town on the U.S. side of the cannabis conversation these days. If you haven’t heard about Delta-8 at this point, you are probably living under a rock. The cannabinoid is being marketed as the “lighter” if not “less paranoid” version of Delta-9 THC. Even better, at least initially to intrepid entrepreneurs determined to beat the odds if not jump the shark into multi-state distribution, Delta-8 can be chemically extracted from hemp. 

There is only one problem with all of this, of course, and that is where this argument bumps into science. Delta-8 can be created by merely oxidizing (exposing to air) good old Delta-9 THC, and from any kind of plant. The delta between the deltas, in other words, is very small. Just because Delta-8 (like Delta-9) can also be extracted from hemp, the cannabinoid has been reported to give consumers similar psychoactive effects of Delta-9, while existing in a legal grey area.

In the middle of the hoopla, American states have begun to take

Germany will hold parliamentary elections on September 26 of this year. While the ruling Union is expected to win the largest number of seats in the Bundestag, the majority of polls show the Greens (officially Alliance 90/The Greens) taking the second-highest number of seats. In fact, as recently as May, some polls had die Grünen coming in first.

If their numbers hold up, there is a good chance the Greens will be called in as a minority partner in a coalition government. Under such a scenario, the Greens’ leader, Annalena Baerbock, would be expected to become vice-chancellor.

Why does this all matter to readers of this blog? Well, check out what the Green’s platform has to say on cannabis:

“We want to dry up the black market for cannabis and drive back organized crime. To do this, we will introduce a cannabis control law. It enables the legal and controlled distribution of cannabis in licensed specialty shops. At the same time, we want to create a regulated and monitored system for the cultivation, trade and distribution of cannabis. In this way, real consumer and youth protection as well as addiction prevention should finally come into play.”

As discussed above, the Greens’

Allen Iverson and Viola Brands are teaming up to release exclusive strains and merchandise across various markets, and we’re excited. 

As a Black-owned brand, Viola is dedicated to building equity and improving the status of human rights in the cannabis space. With the help of NBA Hall of Fame legend Allen Iverson, they are going to be able to get the word out through the partnership that legal cannabis is for everyone, and prisoners, notably people of color, should not be behind bars while others freely profit from cannabis legalization.  

Founded by CEO Al Harrington, the purpose behind Viola is to create “an industry leading and scalable collaboration across product lines and markets,” according to the brand’s press release. As an NBA legend himself, Harrington is plugged into how star power in the basketball world can help influence policy and Black advocacy in the cannabis world and other spaces. Partnering with Iverson is the next natural step for the strong and inclusive brand.
