The discovery has the potential to change the way CBD is harvested forever. Despite its current popularity, cannabis illegality makes CBD unnecessarily difficult to cultivate. Sourcing CBD from the completely legal Treme Micrantha Blume would cut out a lot of the extra legal work.
Lead researcher Rodrigo Moura Neto said his team is looking to conduct more research to determine the best way to extract CBD from Trema. They also hope to uncover whether Trema-derived CBD is as effective as cannabis-derived CBD. Neto’s research efforts have received over $100K in funding from the Brazilian government. The Treme-CBD study is expected to take at least five years.

Scotland Pushes UK on Decriminalization
Scotland is urging the UK government to give up on the war on drugs. The Scottish government has called for the decriminalization of all drugs for personal use. Instead of imprisonment, Scotland calls for the prioritization of treatment and other support systems.
Scotland’s Drugs Policy Minister, Elena Whitham, blasted the current approach of the “war on drugs,” saying it has failed at preventing drug use, reducing harm, or preventing deaths. Whitham further argued that criminalization has, in actuality, led to increased human suffering and unnecessary deaths. “That’s a fact. I don’t think we can dispute that,” Whitham remarked.
Despite Scotland’s impassioned plea, the UK government does not look like it’s budging any time soon. A Home Office spokesperson representing the UK government doubled down on the war on drugs, saying:
“Illegal drugs destroy lives and devastate communities…We have no plans to decriminalise drugs given the associated harms, including the risks posed by organised criminals, who will use any opportunity to operate an exploitative and violent business model.”
In addition to the UK Government, Scotland also faces internal challenges from its Conservative Party. The party has been clear about its opposition to full-on decriminalization, arguing that it would exacerbate Scotland’s drug death crisis.
