As a permanent reminder and tribute to our highly effective leadership team, the team at Food Arses thought it would be useful to start a thread highlighting all our key failures over the last few years. Please tweet replies below, outlining all failures you are aware of. 💣💥
1. Human Placenta Processors. Some registered as food Biz and awarded #FHRS. Some served with HEPNs. @foodgov have never provided clarity or guidance on this issue, and to date remain on the fence (despite hosting the inconsistent #FHR data on this).
2. Allergens. Late to the party and still not managing the issue. #Allergen recalls still occurring very regularly. #Allergen complaints and incidents still happening. Non-compliance widespread in food biz. Unclear whether #allergens are in or out of the #FHRS

1/n, Several people asked me about this headline, on a recent preprint claiming that #cannabis extracts high in #CBD have, "the potential of reducing [#coronavirus] infection by 70 to 80 percent.” Quite a claim. Let's briefly look at the study... Image
2/n, Remember, this a preprint, so hasn't been peer-reviewed and people are rushing to get #COVIDー19 related studies out ASAP. Let's briefly look at what they did and some results. Are the experiments/results compelling, or is this an absurd rush job (place your bets now!) ...
3/n, Basically, what they did was take cultures of human-derived cells (e.g. oral epithelial cells), put #cannabis extracts onto them, and ask if transcript (mRNA) or protein levels of ACE2 were impacted. ACE2 is an important protein #coronavirus uses to infect cells.

2) Starting off we know the issues with his brother and #Alcohol which for most would lead them to believe he was completely against any and all substances. However I am lead to believe the exact opposite.
3) #Drugs and #Alcohol both are known to have horrible side effects that contribute to many of the horrible #sickness and #disease we know today. We have all long known the power of this 🌿. This leads me to a Poll, Lets keep you engaged!

... By space bugs which have been “weaponized,” no doubt, by Vladimir Putin, who, if you read the media, weaponizes everything in some secret Siberian laboratory, including, drumroll please, “jokes.” 😂😂😂
lol >>> The Integrity Initiative claims it focuses on Russian hybrid disinformation warfare, a form of irregular warfare they claim Russia is conducting. <<~

THREAD: This is what it’s like when a restaurant closes during #coronapocalypse:

Today we picked up our final checks. We are all laid off & are eligible for #Unemployment. Our GM & Chef/Owner set up the dining room like a grocery store so we could walk around & take food home /1
It was incredibly sad. We tried to maintain our social distance, but we’re a family so some people hugged. I tried to be logical with my food choices, but it felt so overwhelming because of feels, plus most was perishable food /2
I made sure to get things I knew I’d eat: a lot of bread, some cheese, pasta, pickles, butter, eggs. I did take some smoked salmon, as well as some chicken & bacon to freeze, but left the Impossible patties, whole fishes, & duck for others /3

What do you do when your patient asks you about #CBD? A short tweetorial on my interview with cannabis expert @peter_grinspoon #medtwitter 1/…
@Peter_Grinspoon You may think you don’t need to know about this, since we know so little. But CBD is everywhere, and your patients may look to you for guidance. 2/
@Peter_Grinspoon First cannabis contains hundreds of ingredients, but THC, which is psychoactive, is the most prevalent, and CBD, which is not, is the second. 3/

I'm talking to parents about #CBD a lot recently, so just wanted to throw this out there:

CBD oil *may* turn out to be a safe and effective treatment for ADHD, anxiety, or some other condition.


We don't know that. (1/)
We also don't know what negative effects it might have. Because everything that had potential for good effects also has potential for bad ones.

Sure it's "natural." Whatever that means. But that doesn't mean it's safe. (See "uranium," "poison ivy," and "moose.") (2/)
It's also not FDA regulated, so no matter what your source claims, you have no idea what's in it. Or what's not in it.

Even if we knew it was effective, even if we knew it wasn't harmful to adults...that's not the same as giving it to a child. (3/)

1/ I want to draw your attention to a great #cannabis #business #intelligence report just released from @FreshleafA which is free to download. Disclosure: they’re a past client of mine, but I wouldn’t promote this report if it wasn’t awesome
2/ The best part of this analysis is it’s based on proprietary data taken from the largest chain of cannabis clinics in #Australia. So, although the patient access data I publish is more comprehensive, theirs is more precise. Here are the highlights:
3/ Counting active patients in Australia is diff-i-cult. Freshleaf’s definition is anyone seeing a clinic #doctor, receiving a script or receiving a new or replacement approval. My preferred definition is anyone in possession of an active recommendation but here's their graph

THREAD: Have you read “The Complete Guide to the #CBD Boom” by @qz? It highlights many of the reasons why #EAS is getting into the CBD industry, and why I am convinced we will succeed (1/8)
First, the article shows just how passionate and vocal #CBD users are. The vast majority of Americans (86%!) have heard about CBD, despite the fact that it has only been legal for six months. This is a group that generates tremendous word-of-mouth (2/8)
We see the large gap between awareness and trial of #CBD (20% per Harris Poll) as normal, given how young the industry and how new this product still are (3/8)

Lifetime risk of getting #melanoma for an American is high. This is particularly true for caucasians. One in 38 white Americans will get skin cancer during their lives. Stats are better for African-Americans at 1:1000, but worse for Latinos with stats showing 1 in 172.
There is a paucity of research on cannabis & cancer. For skin cancers, there are not any clinical trials investigating the question of #cannabis medical efficacy. Rick Simpson was one of the rare patients whose basal cell carcinoma metastasized.…

In response to the recent @NYTimes editorial on cannabis and as a committee member on the @theNASEM #cannabis and #cannabinoids report we did NOT conclude that cannabis causes schizophrenia.

What Advocates of Legalizing Pot Don’t Want You to Know
We found 1) an #association between cannabis use and schizophrenia and 2) an #association between cannabis use and IMPROVED cognitive outcomes in individuals with psychotic disorders (not mentioned in the editorial).
Since the report, we now know that genetic risk for schizophrenia predicts cannabis use, shedding some light on the potential direction of the association between cannabis use and schizophrenia.
