Manufacturing / SIX LABS LAUNCHES HIGGS PRODUCTS IN MICHIGAN


Six Labs, a leading Michigan-licensed cultivator, announced that it is continuing to expand its Michigan portfolio of brands with the addition of Higgs's award-winning luxury cannabis brand. In addition to Michigan, Higgs is also available in Colorado and California.

We need to move beyond that stigma. For us, it's about creating products that are focused on happiness and having a good time with friends and loved ones."

Known for its distinctive premium packaging with a south Florida vibe, Higgs' variety of single-strain flower is for anyone who wants the convenience of a professionally rolled joint. Each pack comes with six 0.58 gram pre-rolled joints ready for wherever life takes you.

Grower / Worlds First Zero Percent THC, High CBD Hemp Cultivar Enters U.S. Market


Colorado hemp seed genetics company Trilogene Seeds is introducing the world's first hemp cultivar engineered to prevent THC production.

The patent pending "THC Null" trait was developed by a team of university professors and bio-engineering experts over a two-and-a-half-year period using RNA interference (RNAi) technology to silence the genetic pathways that produce THC in a hemp plant.

THC Null cultivars are not physiologically different from any other hemp. They simply cannot make THC — the psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, including marijuana, and in minimal amounts, hemp.

The introduction of THC-free hemp genetics means the global hemp industry can finally move forward without fear of running afoul of THC-limiting laws, said Matt Haddad, CEO of Trilogene Seeds.
