Is The NBA Pro-Marijuana Now?

Not only did the head of the NBA’s player union join the board of Cresco Labs, the league suspended testing for marijuana use.

The National Basketball Association will return July 31 under a “bubble” system in Orlando. Only 22 teams will compete in an abbreviated regular season hosted at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on the Disney World grounds before playoffs commence. Should players feel stressed about the competition or coronavirus, there is good news — they can consume marijuana without repercussion.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the NBA will not conduct recreational drug tests while players live in the Disney bubble. Tests for performance-enhancing drugs, however, will resume.

Whether purchased from a licensed dispensary or made in your own kitchen, cannabis edibles offer a tasty way to cop a good buzz without the health risks associated with smoking or vaping. But if you look at an edible product closely, you’ll probably notice an expiration or “best by” date printed on the packaging. What does this date mean?

Ontarians spent $20M on Cannabis 2.0 items in first three months of sales: OCS

Ontarians shelled out almost $20 million in the first three months that edibles and other products in Canada's second wave of legalization were available for sale — and experts believe that number will only grow.

Cannabis vapes, topicals, concentrates and edibles such as gummies and chocolates hit store shelves in January with beverages following in March, but roughly $19.3 million worth of those products were sold in Ontario in the 12 months ending at March 2020.

The province's distributor, the Ontario Cannabis Store, said vapes were the most popular products in the second wave of legalization, known as Cannabis 2.0. About $14.8 million worth of vapes were sold in the first three months they were available.

Let's talk about hash, is it due for a rise in popularity?

Before COVID-19 made it impossible, Dan Larocque and a friend would meet up two or three times a month for “Hash Day” — a precious few hours devoted to making their own hash.

The process is a bit of a to-do. The pair combines homegrown, harvested cannabis with ice water in a portable washing machine. The mixture is eventually dumped out into a bucket with stacks of screening bags inside. Each bag is then drained, as resin heads are collected at the bottom.

This Is Why CBD Doesn't Work For Everyone

CBD won’t solve all your problems.

While many other companies would like to have you believe differently, it’s true. It’s not a panacea. It’s not a miracle product. Millions of people have already begun to regularly use CBD for one reason or another, but the truth is it doesn’t work for everyone.
