Can CBD Really Do All That?

Concept and diagram by Paul Sahre. Photo illustration by Jamie Chung. Prop styling by Anna Surbatovich When Catherine Jacobson first heard about the promise of cannabis, she was at wits’ end. Her 3-year-old son, Ben, had suffered from epileptic seizures since he was 3 months old, a result of a brain malformation called polymicrogyria. Over the years, Jacobson and her husband, Aaron, have tried giving him at least 16 different drugs, but none provided lasting relief. They lived with the grim prognosis that their son — whose cognitive abilities never advanced beyond those of a 1-year-old — would likely...

What is Synthetic Weed and Why is it Hazardous?

by Tyler Koslow With cannabis legalization taking root across the United States, there are a number of impostor products masquerading as “synthetic weed,” more commonly referred to as K2 or Spice. Usually made of a mixture of herbs, spices, or shredded plant material, K2 contains lab-made synthetic compounds sprayed onto the material that can result in potentially dangerous effects when consumed. Synthetic marijuana raised alarm in the media in May 2018, when more than 50 Brooklyn residents overdosed on K2 within the span of a few days. The epidemic spurred city officials into action, as Democratic New York Gov....

To do so they conducted 17 focus groups across Colorado and interviewed 136 people over the age of 60. “Older Americans are using cannabis for a lot of...
