5 Common Benefits Of Sativa Strains

Cannabis strains aren’t as important as people think they are. Still, some key effects have been associated with sativas separate from others.

As two primary cannabis forms, sativas and indicas become associated with certain behaviors and effects. However, the value of these definitions has lost weight over time. Their effects are not as clear cut as the names sativas and indicas make it out to be, with experts now understanding the multiple variations inherent in cannabis plants, as well as how these variations impact people differently.

Dominion strike leaves central Newfoundland shoppers with no cannabis retailer

The almost four-week-old Dominion strike is turning into a major buzzkill for cannabis enthusiasts in central Newfoundland, who have been left with no retail outlets for miles.

Dominion was granted the only two initial retail licenses for cannabis sales in the central part of the province, and the store's contract dispute with Unifor Local 597 has led to the closure of both establishments — as well as eight others across the province.

"It's just a big bummer all around, really," said Jennifer Warren, a resident of Gambo. "You gotta order stuff online — and with COVID, too, the mail thing slows everything down."

Warren says cannabis is part of her daily routine with her boyfriend, but ordering by mail is just not the same.

Twitter has partnered with the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to raise awareness about substance abuse when people search for marijuana on the platform.

According to a report from Marijuana Moment released this week, no such policy exists for alcohol-related searches. 

When Twitter users search for marijuana or related keywords on the social media platform, a notification that reads: “Help is available. If you or someone you know is struggling with substance use, you are not alone” pops up above search results. The notification is accompanied by a link that leads to the website of SAMHSA, which is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

Cannabis users aren't stereotypical stoners: Survey

Gone are the days of getting stoned while sitting on the couch and watching Ren and Stimpy.

The stereotype of the couch-locked stoner is long gone as Canadians are being more productive with their lives while consuming cannabis.

Commissioned by cannabis brand Figr, a Maru/Blue survey found 72% of Canadians don’t fit the stereotype, choosing to smoke up while performing daily tasks such as laundry or dish washing.

Of those surveyed, 51% of females would consider using cannabis to help them while doing chores while 35% indicated they’d do the same.

The Figr survey suggests that Canadians are finding different ways of integrating cannabis use into their daily lives, in what the company is calling the modern cannabis consumer.
