Licensed cannabis retailers may only sell lab-tested products approved by certified analytical institutions whose job it is to ensure that marijuana is both effective and safe.

So, if you love wine or cigars or fresh pastries, you’ll probably sniff them before you consume them. Discerning wine connoisseurs will stick their nose deep into their glass, close their eyes, and gently inhale. Do they smell fruit? Vanilla? Is there a hint of chocolate? What about toast or wood or even grass?

If you had been one of the first cannabis farmers, you might have gone out to your crop one morning to find a herd of Woolly Mammoths grazing in it. That’s right, the plant that we now grow in carefully maintained environments was first cultivated during the most recent Ice Age,where it fended off glaciers and flourished in the nutrient-rich dump sites of prehistoric hunters.
