Beezle Extracts Live Resin Budders are made using the same process: they harvest plants at their peak ripeness, quickly freeze them, and extract them at sub-zero temperatures. This cold process allows them to retain more of the terpenes and other aromatic compounds than is possible from dry plant material, which leads to a more flavorful dabbing experience. Beezle Extracts Live Resin Budder is similar to a batter except that it is more of a sliceable texture, allowing for easy storage and offering a very similar dabbing experience to batter, creating the perfect texture for you!
As an alternative to live resins, Beezle Extracts also offers Cured Resin Budders. As newly-harvested plant material is dried and cured, the terpene content changes chemically and physically as the more volatile compounds evaporate off. This mellowing process is similar to letting a wine or whiskey age, bringing out a softer character that can at times be more interesting. Cured resin products also tend to test higher for cannabinoid content, as live resin has a higher percentage of other compounds including terpenes in its mix — so those looking for an extra kick of potency may find that they prefer cured products. Beezle Extracts Cured Resin Budders have a soft but easily-handled texture, which is excellent when added to joints or pipe bowls as it is when dabbed, making it a versatile choice.

California and Washington employers must adjust marijuana testing procedures by January 2024
Forbes.com - Significant changes are on the horizon for employers in California and Washington. Effective January 1, 2024, new legislative measures, California Assembly Bill 2188 (AB 2188), Senate Bill 700 (SB 700), and Washington State Senate Bill 5123 (SB 5123), will restrict employers from taking adverse actions against job applicants based on their off-duty use of cannabis or on the results of pre-employment drug tests that find non-psychoactive cannabis metabolites. As a result, employers must revise their drug testing practices by the new year and may consider adopting oral fluid screening.
The core aim of the new laws in California and Washington is to prevent discrimination against lawful users of marijuana, recognizing that non-psychoactive cannabis metabolites in drug tests do not indicate impairment but merely past cannabis consumption. By contrast, the psychoactive properties of cannabis make an individual feel high and generally contribute to impairment. The measures in California and Washington seek to ensure that individuals are not penalized for their off-duty cannabis use while balancing the need for a safe and productive work environment.

Rescheduling marijuana and the next states to legalize: 7 predictions for 2024
MJBizDaily.com - With the cannabis industry eagerly awaiting the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s latest move in the rescheduling process, the new year promises the biggest development in U.S. marijuana policy in 50 years.
If the rescheduling odyssey launched by the Biden administration in October 2022 stays on track, as expected, marijuana will be moved to Schedule 3 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) sometime in 2024.
Though it wouldn’t happen overnight, rescheduling would deliver tax reform, as Section 280E of the federal tax code would no longer apply. Read more »
New cannabis businesses face a years-long queue in California. Lawmakers will weigh cutting the wait
TheHill.com - California lawmakers in the new year will weigh whether to streamline the process of obtaining permits to grow and sell cannabis in the state, in an effort to bolster small businesses.
Their consideration comes at a critical juncture, as California’s prevailing system of softer “provisional licenses” for cannabis cultivation and retail will expire in favor of stricter annual licenses in 2026. And for many, the wait for permits has already stretched on for years.
“A lot of these farmers, they probably entered the system to try to get permitting as early as 2018,” Sarah Dukett, cannabis policy lead for the Rural County Representatives of California group, told The Hill. Read more »
Cannabis users less reliant on traditional sleep aids
TechnologyNetworks.com - Most people who reported using cannabis to get a good night’s rest in a recent study have quit using over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids altogether.
More than 80% of the 1,255 cannabis users surveyed for the Washington State University-led analysis reported no longer using over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids such as melatonin and benzodiazepines. Instead, they had a strong preference for inhaling high-THC cannabis by smoking joints or vaporizing flower, two fast-acting methods that previous research has shown can help with difficulty falling asleep.
Interestingly, around half of the people in the study also specifically reported using cannabis strains containing CBD and the terpene myrcene, an aromatic plant compound found in hops, basil and other plants in addition to cannabis. Read more »
