Legislating THC in Food

As laws for cannabis use change, so do the laws that govern the particular cannabinoids that make up the plant, namely CBD and THC, and how and where they are used. Whereas CBD has already been regulated differently in many places, THC is often left with no regulation at all when it comes to use in edible products.

It has become more commonplace for CBD to be separated from the rest of the cannabis plant, and regulated differently, with the main reason being that since it contains no psychoactive properties, it shouldn’t be treated the same as substances that are psychoactive. With more recreational markets opening, and more food-based products hitting the market, the question of how THC is legislated in food is becoming more of a question.

A dispute over cannabis supply contracts has spilled over to an Ontario courtroom, with a group of cannabis producers including Canopy Growth Corp. being sued for $500 million in damages by a group of shareholders behind a Leamington, Ont.-based greenhouse facility. 

The lawsuit alleges that Canopy Growth, the firm's venture arm Canopy Rivers Inc., as well as TerrAscend Corp. and its Canadian subsidiary, have committed “bad faith, fraud, civil conspiracy, breach of the duty of honesty and good faith in contractual obligations, and breach of fiduciary duty,” according to court documents.

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.

Canada: Cannabis steers healthy increase in agriculture income

Led by surging cannabis sales, farm cash receipts in the first half of the year bucked the general decline caused by the coronavirus.

Receipts of $16.7 billion increased 5.2 per cent over 2019, says the Statistics Canada report.

Without a 62 per cent increase — $685 million — in cannabis sales, farm cash receipts would have increased a mere .8 per cent.

Higher crop receipts of $1.3 billion helped offset a $629 million decline in livestock sales. The decrease was caused by market restrictions when COVID-19 broke out.

Lentil receipts tripled to $604 million with better prices and increased exports to India and Turkey.

Canola returns jumped $249 million as China increased buying and more exports elsewhere offset lost Chinese markets.

Buffalo a key part of flow of Canadian black market marijuana into United States

It’s a high-stakes cat and mouse game.

Some 2,500 to 3,000 tractor-trailer trucks cross the Peace Bridge from Canada into the United States each day.

Which ones are carrying black market Canadian marijuana?

“Our officers are trained, have inspection skills and gut instincts but we also have a lot of technology,” says Rose Brophy, director of field operations for the Buffalo Field Office for U.S. Customs and Border Security.

And the agency has needed all those tools.

Canadian Pot Stocks Still Have a Great Deal of Potential

In the past six months, cannabis investors have focused mostly on U.S. marijuana stocks. This includes pot stocks like Green Thumb Industries Inc. (OTC:GTBIF) and Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (OTC:PLNHF). And while these pot stocks do have potential, investors seem to have lost focus on the Canadian cannabis industry.
