Ont. and Que. cannabis distributors see sales spike amid COVID-19

Some provincial cannabis distributors are seeing Canadians stock up on pot products amid an outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Ontario Cannabis Store spokesperson Daffyd Roderick says the retailer received almost 3,000 orders on Saturday, an 80-per-cent increase over an average Saturday.

Roderick says the last three days have brought an increase in the volume in sales on OCS.ca and a high demand for same-day and next-day delivery.

The OCS has also noticed that authorized cannabis retail stores are reporting an increase in customer volume.

Societe quebecoise du cannabis says in an email to The Canadian Press that it has also experienced an increase in sales over the last few days, but declined to say how big the spike is.

Check out this secretive, yet legal, cannabis shop in Ontario

The first licensed cannabis store in Waterloo is open for business.

Located on King Street South, Bud & Sally Cannabis Co. recently welcomed local residents to check out the cannabis-infused products on offer, CTV News reports.

As the only pot shop in town, the launch drew limited patrons. It’s not as if there’s a significant amount of local competition in the region, although Kitchener’s Meta Cannabis and Cambridge’s Tokyo Smoke are but a quick drive away.

One Waterloo resident said lack of publicity may have been the cause.

Driving with cannabis? Best to put it in the trunk

Dear Herb: How am I supposed to legally transport weed in my car? — Road Tripper

Dear Road Tripper: As with so many issues surrounding legalization in Canada, it depends on where you live — the federal Cannabis Act doesn’t address the issue of transporting cannabis in a vehicle, so it’s up to provincial and territorial governments. The overarching theme across those different legal jurisdictions is this: Like alcohol, cannabis should never be in reach of a vehicle’s driver or passengers. Some provinces and territories allow cannabis to be within reach if it’s still sealed in the original container.

Is Cannabis A ‘Performance Enhancing Drug’?

What’s the most popular sport in the world? According to World Atlas, it’s football (soccer), followed by cricket, field hockey, and tennis. Other internationally popular sports include volleyball, basketball, baseball, rugby, hockey, and golf. What do they all have in common? They ban the use of performance-enhancing drugs and do not condone the use of cannabis.

Globally, many sports leagues prohibit the use of cannabis by athletes. The Olympics also prohibits cannabis use. Most leagues incorporate drug testing that looks for the presence of THC, but not necessarily CBD or other cannabinoids.

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.

Study: Teenagers Are Waiting To Experiment With Drugs Later In Life

According to new research, the average age when teens first try drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, and marijuana, has risen since 2004.

The advent of marijuana reform across North America caused politicians and parents alike to worry about teenagers having easy access to cannabis. But in places where marijuana has become legal for adult-use, adolescents are smoking weed less, not more. This is true in Canada, where marijuana is more recently legal, as well as a city like Denver, an early site of recreational marijuana.

CBD oil is an amazing supplement, but now it’s also an unregulated, fast-growing industry. That means there are unscrupulous scam-artists trying to rip off consumers, too.
