In the first episode of Pioneering Cannabis, Max Montrose, the founder of The Trichome Institute, breaks down the dangers of dabbing, the truth about vape cartridges, why “marijuana” is no longer a dirty word, and why he hates it when people say “cannabis is great for PTSD.”

He also talks about trolls and the future of cannabis.

It’s been such an honor to have Max Montrose in the pilot episode of Pioneering cannabis.

    1. Thanks for the feedback BH! We’re overhauling the whole site (I built this one and it’s got a lot of quirks) and we’ll be using a larger font and easier to read text.

  1. I wonder about how accurateArdent is or how their “lab” reports translate IRL. I saw a video where they said they infused oil different times: 40 minutes, an hour, and the full cycle. They said they got 200 MG out of 1 ounce of oil and 1 gram.

    I tried to replicate it and 1 ounce of oil barely covered the bottom of the sleeve. In the video she was pouring it through a sieve at the end.

    Also they claim that VG does not infuse. I find it to be stronger then any oil.

    When I first found Wake and Bake I got a lot of shake CBD and infused it first in the Ardent and then put the jars of Organic infused VG unstrained in the crockpot sometime overnight then stored them and strained when I needed them.

    The VG I got from Whole Foods (not WF brand) is very sweet and made for food and I wonder if that is why it works as Cannabis is supposed to bind to sugar..? I wonder if there is another unsweetened VG and that is what they tested and doesn’t work?

    What do you think?

    1. There’s honestly no way for us to know unless someone does 3rd party, completely bias free testing on this stuff. I’d love to test VG and alcohol, allll of the gadgets for potency and loss of cannabinoids, and decarboxylation rates and temperatures for THC, CBD and CBG using both gadgets and homespun methods. I’m trying to find a local lab that will let me mad scientist it up, but haven’t found one with the capabilities yet, so stay tuned! In my experience, my VG was less potent (although I don’t think it was 80%+ less potent), so the findings seemed somewhat accurate to me, but I’d need to test it to be sure.
