Is the 10 mg cannabis edibles limit stronger than we thought?

Before cannabis edibles arrived on the market in late 2019 and early 2020, there were heated discussions about Health Canada’s limit on cannabinoid content: 10 mg would the maximum amount of THC and CBD per package, whether it was two milligrams of five candies, or one chocolate bar containing 10 mg.

Some cannabis aficionados decried what they perceived as a far-too-low level of THC, especially for those with a higher tolerance or who had already been sampling products labelled with amounts as high as 200 mg on the illicit market. But Health Canada stayed firm, citing concerns about keeping curious children safe from harrowing accidental doses.

Barriers To Studying Marijuana: Q&A With Dr. Thorsten Rudroff

Dr. Rudroff recently spoke in depth with The Fresh Toast about common misconceptions and barriers to research currently in place when studying medical marijuana or CBD. 

“We need long-term studies!

Are Synthetic Cannabinoid Medications As Effective As Marijuana?

It’s critically important to make a distinction between FDA-approved synthetic cannabinoid medications and street synthetic cannabinoids that are used recreationally.

Cannabis produces a wide range of physical and cognitive changes by interacting with receptors designed for our own internal cannabinoids, which are called “endocannabinoids.” These effects are the product of many chemical compounds in cannabis, such as terpenes, flavonoids, and, as this article will focus on, cannabinoids like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Can You Trust CBD Ads On Social Media?

Despite CBD’s wide reaching popularity, purchasing these products requires a good amount of research and care.

Social media is a great place to look for products, because whether it’s Instagram or Facebook, these platforms can easily connect you with stuff you enjoy. There’s also an algorithm that keeps track of your online behavior, showing you products that fit your tastes. As of late, however, social media has become a space filled with ads and sponsored posts. This should make us all think twice before hitting that purchase button, especially when it comes to CBD.

Artisanal Vs. Pharmaceutical Cannabidiol

A preliminary study to be presented at an upcoming American Academy of Neurology conference claims teens with epilepsy treated with pharmaceutical CBD fared better than those using “artisanal” cannabidiol.

“Artisanal” refers to a product made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal cannabidiol is manufactured outside of what would be considered an industrial laboratory environment. The preference for artisanal cannabidiol could be any of a number of reasons – including cost. It’s been used by some patients for years to help manage epilepsy.
