'He was a totally different kid': The impact of cannabis oil on the health of children

CBD oil

A Manitoba mother says the use of cannabis oil has had a profound impact on the health of her child.

Dr. Jenn Anderson’s son, Nicholas, has epilepsy and is non-verbal. In 2016, he has having multiple seizures each hour.

She said she tried a bottle of cannabinol, or CBD oil, which doesn’t have psychoactive effects. Within two weeks, there has been a change.

“He was alert and alive and able to participate,” Anderson said.

“He was a totally different kid.”

A small town, farm kid approach: Rogue Botanical innovates in crowded cannabis market

cannabis plant

John Fayed and Matt Tkachyk are farmers at heart. They are small town boys with a passion for agriculture and cannabis.

The pair are co-founders of Rogue Botanical, a licensed producer of cannabis-based products based out of Niverville.

Fayed grew up near a tiny town in Manitoba and his family owned a seed plant.

“My dad grew a lot of specialty crops and he’d try out plants that you can’t spray [with pesticides] because you don’t know what would or wouldn’t harm the plants,” Fayed says.

“If you can’t spray, you just have to let everything grow. And to get rid of what you didn’t want in the plot or fields, you would have to walk up and down the field and pull out the weeds. That’s called ‘roguing.’ So our name goes back to our farming roots.”

Court challenge to Manitoba's homegrown cannabis ban argues province going against Ottawa

gavel

Other provinces rightly understood they could regulate home cannabis production, but not prohibit: applicant

A lawyer for the Manitoba government says the province is well within its rights to ban the production of homegrown cannabis, even though federal legislation permits it.

Michael Conner said laws which are tougher provincially than federally already exist in some areas, such as imposing penalties for impaired driving beginning with a reading of .05, rather than the .08 prescribed by Ottawa. 

As such, Conner told Manitoba's Court of Queen's Bench on Monday, "it shouldn't come as a surprise that some provinces might have chosen to move more cautiously" around a drug that until recently was illegal.

Founder of not-for-profit says he’s concerned Manitoba holding back sale of fundraising pre-rolls

Pre-Rolled Cannabis Joint

 

The man leading the charge to challenge Manitoba’s ban on home-grown cannabis says he believes the province may be holding back sales of a new not-for-profit pre-roll meant to raise funds for the court challenge. 

Jesse Lavoie, founder of TobaGrown, announced his TobaGrown pre-roll line earlier this year, meant to raise funds for his organization’s court challenge against the Manitoba government. 

But in March, Lavoie says the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries (MBLL) accepted a range of new SKUs, but not his own, something he speculates may be related to the politics surrounding the product and the movement it’s seeking to help raise funds for.

Legal grow-ops to be licensed and moved into manufacturing or industrial areas

The City of Winnipeg is closing a pair of loopholes that allow medical cannabis grow-ops to sprout up in homes in quiet residential neighbourhoods.

City council's property committee voted unanimously Tuesday to approve bylaw changes that will require Health Canada-approved medical cannabis production facilities to operate within industrial or manufacturing areas.

In a parallel move next week, council's protection committee will consider a report that will require medical cannabis growing operations to be licensed and inspected by the city and pay fines for violating those licences.
