Canada firm developing beer brewed from pot

Interest from alcohol giants like Constellation Brands Inc. and Molson Coors Brewing Co. has made cannabis-infused beverages the most talked-about product in the pot industry, but there's one widely acknowledged problem: They taste awful.

A tiny Canadian company thinks it's found a solution. Instead of infusing a drink with cannabinoids like THC or CBD, then masking the oily, bitter concoction with sugar as many beverage makers do in the U.S., Province Brands of Canada is developing beer brewed from the cannabis plant.

The undervalued and expanding Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) set for a comeback

There has been a lot happening in the cannabis space over the past week: Canada legalized the recreational use of the drug federally and the sales from the first day turned out to be great. However, this same period has seen some cannabis stocks plummet in price, bringing to question the reason for this. Generally, share prices are associated with the expected future gains from a stock. For shares to plummet, the expected future gains are either lower than expected or the expected future losses are expected to rise.

Cannabis vaping startup Pax raises $20 million

Passing a joint is becoming increasingly passé. Pax Labs Inc., a San Francisco-based startup that makes marijuana vaporizers, raised US$20 million from investors, Chief Executive Officer Bharat Vasan said on Monday. The company declined to provide the valuation.

Pax, part of a rising tide of marijuana device companies, makes internet-connected vaporizers that allow users to control how high they get when consuming the drug. The company’s sleek devices look like highlighter pens or USB sticks, and are operated through an app. Vapers can tinker with the app’s settings to puff a thicker plume of smoke, or lower the device’s LED light to be more discreet when inhaling in public.

Meet your e-dealer: Shopify confident its online tech can handle cannabis demand

If the rollout of legal recreational marijuana goes (more or less) smoothly this week, an Ottawa-based tech firm will be able to claim at least some of the credit.

Canadian cannabis-fanciers are expected to log on in large numbers to buy the product online after it becomes officially legal one minute after midnight tonight. In four provinces, that online shopping experience will be shaped largely by a single company: Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify.

The company was chosen to design the retail platform for online sales in Ontario, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Shopify's Vice-President and General Manager Loren Padelford laughed when asked whether he thinks he's joining the marijuana trade this week.
