How can cannabis help in treating anxiety?

Today, people use cannabis products such as CBD for numerous medicinal benefits, here we find out how it can help in treating anxiety

Cannabis products such as CBD (cannabidiol) oil have become mainstream trends in health and wellness. Although the use of cannabis for medicinal benefits spans many centuries, products from the plant have been Schedule I for a long time. Many people are still adjusting to the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. In the US, after the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, manufacturers began to produce various hemp-derived cannabis products. FDA-approved Epidiolex for seizures also became the first legal cannabis-based medication.

Up to 1 Million Kilos of marijuana production has been cut in Canada for 2020

At this time last year, there arguably wasn't a hotter or more popular investment opportunity than marijuana stocks. It's not hard to understand why, either, if you simply look at the industry's recent growth trends or Wall Street's sales forecasts.

Hexo under 'increased pressure' as unlicensed pot recalls CannTrust scandal

Shares of Canadian pot producer HEXO (HEXO.TO)(HEXO) fell to a two-year low after the company revealed late Friday that it grew cannabis in a space “not adequately licenced” by Health Canada at a Niagara, Ont. facility. Now, analysts are asking why it took months for the company to tell investors after management discovered the lapse.

The public admission by Gatineau, Que.-based HEXO came more than two-and-a-half months after the company said it discovered its “Block B” room inside a building formerly-owned by Newstrike Brands was not fully licenced on July 30. Hexo acquired Newstrike Brands on March 28 for $263 million.

THC-infused edibles and CBD-infused edibles

With edibles coming to brick-and-mortar shops in mid-December, users are looking to get high without the smoke.

But when choosing edibles, users will want to pay attention to whether the product has CBD or THC, two compounds with very different effects.

CBD

CBD, the non-psychoactive component within cannabis has been widely touted for its medical benefits to help people with, among other conditions, chronic pain. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports CBD is not physically addictive.

Note to Drake: Canada’s swag rules can be confusing

Christmas is coming, but don’t expect any flashy giveaways from your favourite cannabis brand. The laws behind promoting cannabis in Canada are far too Grinch-like for that.

“Much like alcohol, we don’t want to encourage people to buy the product. So, the advertising is supposed to be really neutral,” Daniel Walker, a lawyer with Bobila Walker Law, told The GrowthOp.

An update of the Cannabis Act in October added clarification to the rules around promotional items. But it still can be confusing.

Canada's pot stocks get hammered again: Is the party over for cannabis investors?

There was a time just a few short months ago that buying into the world of legal cannabis seemed like a sure thing.

But that optimism has gone up in smoke.

A major pot stock sell off continued on markets Monday, partially because consumers are less than enthused about legally available cannabis.

Saskatchewan’s business-friendly approach could pay off for cannabis companies and consumers alike

The province’s decision to tackle cannabis legalization by implementing a relatively liberal cannabis framework compared to some other provinces has begun to yield big results. Unlike Ontario, Quebec, B.C. and Alberta, private sector companies, such as Inner Spirit Holdings, are permitted to operate online dispensaries in Saskatchewan.

Manitoba isn’t messing around with edibles in the public space

Home is where the edibles are in Manitoba.

As Legalization 2.0 brings a wave of cannabis edibles and extracts to Canada’s store shelves later this year, Manitoba is taking impending arrivals very seriously. The province has stated its intention to make the public consumption of the drug in all its forms illegal, even if a tweak to legislation is required, the Times-Colonist reported.

Hexo says unlicensed pot grown at now-shuttered Niagara facility

A “limited quantity” of unlicensed cannabis was grown inside a Niagara, Ont. facility that Quebec-based Hexo Corp. acquired from Newstrike Brands Inc. earlier this year, with a “tiny” amount of that pot entering the market, the company’s chief executive said.

In a release late Friday, Hexo said once the company discovered that unlicensed cannabis was being cultivated in “Block B,” a room inside a building formerly owned and operated by Newstrike Brands, it immediately “ceased cultivation and production activities” in the room and notified federal regulators. Hexo acquired Newstrike Brands in March for $263 million.
