How much THC is the right amount for pot-infused drinks?

Canopy Growth Crop. unveiled its new portfolio of products on Thursday that included a handful of drinks.

At the presentation, the cannabis giant noted how alcoholic drinks have shot glasses, wine glasses and pints — cups appropriate to the strength of each type of beverage.

Canopy had to find the cannabis equivalent.

So, what is the magic number?

The company thinks the answer is 2 mg of THC per drink.

While some regular cannabis users may think that isn’t enough THC, Canopy thinks it will force consumers to pace themselves and produce a similar amount of intoxication to one alcoholic drink.

‘Poor Quality’ Cannabis At The Root Of Canada’s Woes

As the troubles stack-up for the main cannabis companies in Canada, an industry insider believes they’ll never be able to address one key issue – a lack of ‘good quality weed’.

James A. Smith, Chief Revenue Officer in Canada at emerging cannabis 4C Labs, says: “I do not know anyone who buys their cannabis on the legal market, it’s horrible quality.”

Recent figures show the ‘black’ and ‘grey’ markets continue to cater for the needs of the majority of Canada’s cannabis consumer users, with many leading companies blaming this on a lack of retail outlets. While acknowledging this has some merit, Mr Smith believes it is being used as a smokescreen for a litany of inadequacies.

Anutin Charnvirakul, who is also deputy prime minister, said he has signed a draft regulation on allowing farmers to grow cannabis. The regulation will be examined by the Council of State and then submitted to the cabinet for consideration.

Drinkables Are The New Edibles. Where, When And How Can You Get Them?

Why do consumers love drinkable cannabis? Let us count the ways. It's discreet, it requires no special equipment, it tastes good, and it's a familiar and safe delivery system. 

Weed-infused drinks make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the cannabis market. It's a sprawling category that includes tinctures to mix with cocktails; non-alcoholic alternatives to wine, beer, or champagne; wellness beverages that can lull you to sleep or take the place of aspirin or ibuprofen after a strenuous game of hoops or tennis; and sparkling sodas that are as appealing to millennials as they are to baby boomers who aren't comfortable lighting up.

Demand For CBD Oil Could Lead To Christmas Tree Shortage

Growers are choosing to grow crops that are easier to take care of and that produce more money than seasonal Christmas trees.

Christmas trees take their time to grow and develop, which is why some growers are tempted to plant less seasonal and more profitable crops, such as hemp. This change could make it hard for those who are looking for a Christmas tree to find the option they want.

The results of a new research trial released this month show that flushing plants before harvest may not improve the quality of cannabis flower. The results seem to contradict the commonly held belief that flushing plants improves the taste and burnability of dried cannabis flower.

Under common, although not universal, cultivation practices, cannabis growers stop fertilizing their plants one to two weeks before harvest in an effort to improve the quality of their finished product.
