Canada's chronic shortage of legal cannabis expected to drag out for years

Canada's persistent shortage of legal cannabis could drag on for years. The impending legalization of edible pot will only divert more product away from empty store shelves across the country. One industry insider said he now expects that shortage to endure until 2022.

"If it was just the current product set, I'd say a year to 18 months," said Chuck Rifici, CEO of the Toronto-based cannabis company Auxly.

"But because we have edibles and a bunch of new product types coming in October, I think it'll be the better part of three years before we have true equilibrium and oversupply in the space."

Calling all coders: The pot industry is tech-hungry

The first rule of cannabis coding: well, there are no rules...yet. Legal cannabis is still very much the digital Wild West for coders.

The Coffee Joint, Denver's only licensed pot lounge, has been hosting a series of sessions called CannaCoding, bringing industry professionals and prospective cannabis coders together to talk about the developing trade. The lounge initially teamed up with Jamison Ordway, a software engineer and regular Coffee Joint visitor, to give cannabis technology (dubbed "cannatech" by those who work in it) a meeting point.

New study shows joints waste 300 percent more THC than dabs

Dabs getting you higher than joints is not a new concept in the United States. In fact, they rose to popularity in the US when headlines touted their potency with unsubstantiated claims that one dab was as strong as five joints. While the act of consuming concentrates has become common among American cannabis users, hardly any available research exists on the subject due to federal prohibition.

This Chicago startup has created a Starbucks-like app for marijuana

A new Chicago startup is working to make the process of buying marijuana from dispensaries easier and more transparent with a new smartphone app.

CannaTrac just launched its app this month, which operates as a marketplace where dispensaries can sell marijuana products and consumers can purchase them using a secure payments platform. The app operates similarly to the Starbucks app in that it allows users to load money onto physical or virtual cards, and pay with them in person or electronically.

CannaTrac’s platform simplifies the cannabis-buying process because dispensaries cannot accept traditional debit or credit cards, and paying in cash can be dangerous, said CEO Tom Gavin.
