US sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson will be missing the Tokyo Olympics because she tested positive for marijuana during the US Track & Field trials. With cannabis legal in many states across America, why is it still outlawed in sports?

With her flowing tangerine orange hair, killer smile and lightning speed, Sha'Carri Richardson was unmissable in the lead-up to the Olympic Games.


The European Union Is Going To Be A Major Driving Force For CBD In 2021

Read entire article at Technical 420

With 2020 coming to a close in less than two weeks, we want to highlight one of the most significant themes of the year as it relates to the cannabis industry.

The theme is the European Union (EU) and we believe that the continent made significant strides in 2020. Although the EU cannabis market recorded impressive growth when compared to 2019, the growth came in below broker-dealer expectations and we believe that this put pressure on the companies that are highly focused on it.


Cannabis tourism in Amsterdam coffeeshops

Amsterdam is known the world over for their famous coffeeshops, easy access to weed, and safe consumption spaces. But what is the history behind Amsterdam's storied cannabis establishments and its seemingly permissive and lenient laws, especially given that, even in Amsterdam, cannabis remains illegal? Let's take a look behind the scenes. 

First things first: As mentioned earlier, despite all evidence that suggests otherwise, cannabis is not legal in Amsterdam locally, nor the Netherlands in general. What the Netherlands does have is progressive drug policy that distinguishes hard drugs from soft drugs.

Aurora to close some European offices, lay off staff in latest restructuring move

Aurora Cannabis Inc. is closing some of its European operations as the cannabis producer opts to consolidate its presence in the continent amid soft demand for medical pot, according to an internal memo obtained by BNN Bloomberg. 

Aurora told its employees last week that it will shut its offices in Portugal, Spain, and Italy while reducing its European workforces by one-quarter in select countries and its regional office, the memo said. The Edmonton-based company will shift its European headquarters from Germany to its Denmark office while acquiring the remaining 49 per cent of its Danish business that it doesn't already own, the company said. 


Cannabis in Europe: hotbed of opportunity awaits Canadian firms

As Health Canada continues to piece together the jigsaw puzzle that is the domestic cannabis market, many forward-thinking companies are looking abroad to secure their global leadership positions.

The establishment of a commercial, domestic medical program in 2013, coupled with the October 2018 launch of adult-use access, ushered in a wave of zealous capital and entrepreneurship. This fervour may enable Canada to leverage its first-mover status and author the blueprint for others; however, its relatively small population simply does not offer a sizable enough addressable market to scale into the sphere of global dominance.


3 Canadian marijuana stocks with a significant European presence

At this time one year ago, cannabis stocks were seated high on the mountain top overlooking nearly all other industries and sectors. The marijuana industry simply couldn't be stopped, with Canada becoming the first industrialized country in the world to legalize recreational pot on Oct. 17, 2018.

But my how the tables have turned.

The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. (TSX: FIRE) is readying itself for Canada's "legalization 2.0" by entering into a definitive agreement with the private company Truverra Inc.

The deal is expected to be valued at around CA$20 million ($15.3 million).

This includes CCC's 5,000-square-foot Scarborough, Ontario facility, where Supreme said it plans to produce its extracts, including products like concentrates that will be legal for sale later in the year.


4 Canada-listed cannabis stocks set to light it up in Europe

With a population size of 740 million people, Europe’s population dwarfs both Canada and the U.S combined. The sizable growth the cannabis industry has had over the past 12 months can be attributed to six countries that have announced medical cannabis legalization.

So far, over €500.0M has been invested in European cannabis businesses (Prohibition Partners, 2019). It is predicted that Europe over the next five years will be the largest legal cannabis market in the world and could be worth up to €123.0B by 2028. Today we have identified four Canada-listed cannabis stocks with promising operations in the European Union (EU).
