Most of us immediately think of cannabis oil when we see the CBD- and THC-rich super sticky sludge usually found in vaporizer cartridges. Yet, do you have any idea of how it’s all made?

However, Canopy Growth, one of the biggest cannabis producers in Canada, claims they hold the right to this technology.

Namely, just recently, the company received a US patent. And now, anyone caught using their technology potentially owes them money.
