Can Smoking CBD Flowers Help Fight The Flu?

Flu season is in full swing and people are looking for relief wherever they can find it. CBD (cannabidiol) is often promoted as a way to diminish the symptoms of flu and common cold, but does it actually work?

You always know when it hits; sore throat, stuffy nose, coughing and sneezing eventually give way to fever, body aches, and extreme fatigue. It’s the flu (influenza), and it’ll knock you down like you’ve been hit by a bus. For most adults with a healthy immune system, symptoms will disappear after about a week (although it feels never ending).

Edibles have arrived at London cannabis shops

The wait is finally over for cannabis users wanting to try THC-infused edibles.

The first shipment of cannabis gummies, chocolates, cookies and drinks arrived at pot shops across London Friday morning, with the new products ready for sale when the doors opened.

Legislation that allows for the sale of derivative cannabis products, dubbed "cannabis 2.0," went into effect on Dec. 17, 2019. And while many customers were hoping edibles would be available for Christmas, delays due to regulatory checkpoints and logistics set deliveries back.

At cannabis store J. London, located at 691 Richmond Street, there was a steady stream of customers perusing the new menu of treats and asking questions.

Charlottetown company finding success selling cannabis edibles

Cannabis edibles hit the P.E.I. market on Dec. 18 and a Charlottetown company that produces them says staff have been racing to keep up with demand.

Dosecann is busy producing cannabis gummies and chocolates to shell out to Islanders and the rest of Canada.

"This building has literally gone from first gear to sixth. We're racing as if we're a Formula One team," said David Baranowski, director of technology, transfer and quality control.

Cannabis edibles are limited to a maximum of 10 milligrams of THC per retail pack.

Baranowski said the biggest challenge for the company is identifying its own capabilities, and what the interest is of the market in general.

Tough to say if high holiday cannabis edible sales in Winnipeg a sign of coming trend: experts

If you tried to buy edibles as stocking stuffers before the holidays but Manitoba stores were all out, you're not alone.

Several retail cannabis shops in Winnipeg have been in a pattern of selling out and re-stocking ever since edibles became legal Dec. 17.

"We have been kind of cyclically selling out of these products," said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9 cannabis stores, which have several retail outlets in the city. "Anecdotally, I mean, it was a very positive reception."

Staff at Tokyo Smoke and Tweed stores in Osborne Village indicated the same sort of trend in their shops late in December.

How Prince Edward Island went from stigma central to a pot paradise

Pre-colonization, Prince Edward Island’s Mi’kmaq called the small island Epekwitk. French explorer Jacques Cartier arrived in the late 1700s, calling the red sandy beaches and tall grasses “the fairest land ’tis possible to see!” and, according to Tourism PEI, renamed the island Île Saint-Jean. In 1799, the British occupied the land and renamed it again, this time after Prince Edward, Queen Victoria’s father.

New Cannabinoid Said to be 30x Stronger Than THC

Last week, researchers from the University of Salento in Italy discovered two new cannabinoids. The compounds have been deemed tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) and cannabidiphorol (CBDP). What’s interesting about THCP is that it is apparently 30 times stronger than THC. However, nobody is yet to understand what this really means in the grand scheme of cannabis science. The only thing the ganja geeks can say for sure is that this new compound appears to be more prevalent than THC when given to mice. They also believe the presence of THCP could be what provides cannabis strains with varying effects.
