Cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals are coming ... eventually

Hundreds of recreational cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals will hit B.C. shelves soon but it’s unclear whether that will be in time to bring Christmas cheer.

Regulations to make those products legal came into effect on Oct. 17, 2019, one year after the federal legalization of dried cannabis, oil and seeds. But producers weren’t immediately able to ship them to the B.C. Cannabis Stores and website, and private stores.

Cannabis at work, 1 year after legalization

A year into legalized recreational cannabis, and now with the legalization of cannabis edibles on Oct. 17, 2019, employers continue to wrestle with the question of how to strike the right balance between a safe and productive workplace and the privacy and human rights of workers.

As courts and arbitrators continue to clarify (and in some cases, muddy) the law, there are several things we know:

Cannabis in the workplace is no different than any other potentially impairing drug: The overarching question is whether the worker is fit for duty.

Canadian cannabis cultivators spy opportunity in Europe

The European Union’s nascent medical cannabis market is ready to expand with Canadian cannabis cultivators.

New Frontier Data estimates that the potential European market for legal medical cannabis exceeds $42bn (~€38.02bn).1 Currently, Europe does not cultivate enough cannabis to supply the existing and growing demand. In order to meet market needs for medical cannabis the EU must supplement locally produced cannabis with products from international sources.

Science still confused over whether marijuana can tame opioid epidemic

There is a growing body of evidence showing that medical marijuana could be all that is needed to tame the gnarly beast known as the opioid epidemic. On the other hand, there is also some research showing that this is all kooky talk.

It seems that ever since the first study emerged showing that the cannabis plant might be able to prevent tens of thousands of Americans from dropping dead every year from fatal overdoses, we have seen a steady stream of new studies showing conflicting results. To say the science over this concept is all over the map is an understatement.

Rookie mistakes to avoid when making cannabis edibles

One of the broad appeals of cannabis edibles is that they won’t have the same strong smell of smoked cannabis, but how will they taste and feel?

If you choose to put on your cannabis chef hat, this will depend on what you make and how you make them.

Decarboxylation

Before adding the good stuff into your batch, you’ve got to decarboxylate it.

That happens when cannabis heats up and releases THC.

A rookie mistake is to add raw cannabis to the mix, which will not only ruin the taste, but likely lead to no high.

To avoid that tragedy, heat up the cannabis first and then add it into the recipe.

Is it legal to mail cannabis in Canada?

Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to kick back in the cold than by smoking up like a chimney? It seems like the perfect gift for the holidays (or should I say, holi-daze).

But what happens when you want to send some green goodness to a friend in a different city or family in a different province? Is it legal to mail cannabis?

The answer might not be the one you expect.

It turns out, it is completely legal to become the sativa Santa this Christmas — provided you follow a few rules to avoid ending up on the naughty list.

The Canada Post website says you can share “a maximum of 30 grams of dried, recreational cannabis with other adults (age varies by province).”

Drug and alcohol use dropping among Montreal teens: study

Montreal teenagers are drinking less and using drugs less frequently than they used to.

And they’re consuming less than their counterparts in the rest of Quebec.

New statistics comparing usage among high school students in 2016-2017 to five years previously show that 41 per cent of Montreal students reported consuming a complete drink (such as a full beer or whole glass of wine) in the previous 12 months, compared to 47 per cent of high school students in the earlier study.

Binge drinking was also down. Among those who reported drinking in the previous year, the percentage who drank heavily in one sitting — four drinks or more for girls, five for boys — dropped to 54 per cent, down from 62 per cent in 2010-2011.
