  • On-site analysis of cannabis potency using Infrared spectroscopy

    Cannabis is increasingly being recognised for its therapeutic value. This has led to a reduction in its regulation, and even its legalisation, by many different governments. As cannabis production becomes legalised and regulated it is important that manufacturers can assess the chemical content and potency of their plants. The value of cannabis in the control of pain, spasm and a range of ...

  • Shale gas: independent planning is key to reducing environmental impacts of fracking

    Funding for scientists, planners and inspectors should be available before any shale gas development begins, a new review recommends. As revenue for such staff is often provided by the development itself, planning, which is vital to provide immediate environmental protection as well as monitoring long-term impacts, is neglected. The researchers also advocate the use of ‘adaptive ...
