Cannabis oversupply in Oregon as Canada faces shortages

Since the legalization of cannabis, companies and stores opt to produce and sell weed products to cater to a lot of users. This massive growth of producers is observable in different states including Oregon, which leads to the oversupply of cannabis.

At present, Oregon contains pot products that will take up to seven years for users to consume it. While it looks like a positive note, cannabis growers and companies see this event as a problem.

The issuing of a license to grow cannabis would be the closest to why it overproduces. Oregon state issued over 1000 licenses to different cultivators and companies as compared to Canada’s meager 138 producers.

Uruguay set to begin exporting medical marijuana

Already the first country in the world to legalize recreational use of marijuana, Uruguay now aims to go further by becoming the first in Latin America to export it for medicinal purposes.

It's taken a year to get to this point but in Nueva Helvecia -- 120 kilometers (75 miles) west of the capital Montevideo -- the first harvest is ready to be sent abroad.

Employees of the U.S. company Fotmer -- the only one currently licenced to export -- are cutting and drying the plant before it is exported to Europe, Canada and Australia.

In taking this step, Uruguay is joining the ranks of medicinal marijuana exporters dominated by the United Kingdom, which according to United Nations data from 2016 had cornered more than two thirds of the market.

Cannabis package recycling rolled out Canada-wide

Tweed, a subsidiary of Smiths Falls-based cannabis producer Canopy Growth, partnered with TerraCycle, an American recycling company, to introduce the first Canada-wide cannabis packaging recycling program, the companies announced Monday.

Many cannabis consumers have long complained about the packaging that ends up in the landfill as a result of Health Canada’s rules requiring pot producers to package products in tamper-proof and child-resistant containers that prevent contamination.

The packaging can be deposited at J. London at 691 Richmond St. and Central Cannabis at 666 Wonderland Rd., two of the more than 100 bricks-and-mortar cannabis retail outlets participating in the program.

Cannabis trends: CBD oil for seniors, pot that won't make you hungry, and more

The future of cannabis consumption may not involve the cannabis plant at all.

“Years from now, most of the [major cannabis producers] aren’t going to grow a single plant,” Boris Jordan, founder of investment firm Measure 8 Venture Partners, said Tuesday at the GMP Securities 2019 Global Cannabis Conference in Toronto.

Jordan and other industry-watchers expect that demand for edibles, vapes, oils and other non-leaf cannabis products will eventually overtake the more traditional form of the drug.

Data backs them up. Flower-based products made up 66.1 per cent of the Colorado market in 2014 and only 54.1 per cent of the market in 2017, according to Miles Light, a University of Colorado economist with the Marijuana Policy Group.
