Top 10 Higher Learning LV Articles of 2022

Updated: Dec 29, 2022

Thank you for your support of Higher Learning LV. In 2022, we published hundreds of no-cost educational articles for hemp and cannabis industry professions to help them understand the nuanced business and biochemistry of marijuana.


Top Series: Study Summary

Half of our 2022 Top 10 reside in a single series: Study Summary. The results of our 2022 articles prove your love of the Study Summary series—so we'll be releasing new articles in this free series throughout 2023.


Our Top 10 most popular articles of 2022 are featured below. #LearnAndTeachOthers today by sharing them with colleagues and friends to help educate others about the evidence-based science of cannabis.


1: HHC

"In terms of potency, the alt cannabinoid HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) is said to be somewhere between delta-8 and delta-9. Thus, HHC avoids the risk of its more potent sibling THC-O Acetate, which is purported to be 300 percent stronger than delta-9."



2: Terpenes Defined

"Some terpenes, such as pinene, feature two nearly identical molecular siblings, called analogs or isomers. The scientific naming convention involves an alpha (alpha-pinene) and a beta (b-pinene)."



3: Cannabinoids for Skin Cancer

"The study noted that recent research and other scientific investigations have suggested an essential function of the endocannabinoid system in the homeostasis of various skin functions."



4: Discovery of CBDH and THCH

"The study cited previous research investigations that reported the discovery of four new botanically sourced phytocannabinoids that included CBDB and THCB and CBDP and THCP."



5: The Higher Learning LV Interview: Raphael Mechoulam

Mechoulam: "Synthetic versus natural is not relevant as regards toxicity or activity. If a compound is toxic or active, it will be toxic or active...whether it is natural or synthetic."



6. The Molecular Magic of Mistletoe & Marijuana

"Like other terpenes and a variety of cannabinoids, pinene conveys a range of health and wellness benefits, reductions in inflammation, and decreased anxiety."



7. Cannabis Roots for Inflammation & Pain

"The study concluded that cannabis roots are not a significant source of cannabinoids or...terpenes, but that they are rich in other compounds, including triterpenoids and alkaloids."



8. Efficacy of Cannabinoids for Alzheimer's

"The study found that nine of the 11 cannabinoids have the ability to protect [brain] cells.... The scientists also identified mechanisms involved in this protection of brain cells that did not involve the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), in support of the idea that many other microscopic cellular receptors and neurotransmitters are involved in the mechanisms of the ECS."



9. Review: Back to Our Roots with Grassroots Cannabis

"Our samples were dominated by the terpene limonene (which is cool, because it is one of our favorites)."



10. THC for Obesity & Diabetes

"THCV is a cannabis-derived compound with unique properties that set it apart from the more common cannabinoids, such as Δ9-THC."
