Canopy Growth Sues GW Pharma for Using Their Patent

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?

Well, one of the most popular manufacturing processes — the CO2 method — uses carbon dioxide to extract the required components of the plant.
