Molson says drinks will make up 30% of Canada pot market

Cannabis-infused beverages will make up 20 per cent to 30 per cent of the Canadian pot market and the joint venture between Molson Coors Brewing Co. and Hexo Corp. intends to be the leader in the segment, according to its chief executive officer.

Canada will allow beverages, along with edibles and other new formats, to be sold in legal dispensaries beginning in December.

Marijuana vs. hemp: What’s the difference?

With interest in CBD (cannabidiol) rising, and the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing hemp federally, there are many questioning concerning the difference between hemp and marijuana. The distinction isn’t merely academic; one is now federally legal and the other remains a Schedule I drug, but the difference isn’t so clear cut.

Generally, the difference between hemp and marijuana is in the concentration of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), with hemp generally considered so low in concentration so as to be non-psychoactive. Hemp is still cannabis sativa, same as some of the most popular strains of marijuana.

How big data is driving precision cannabis cultivation

Continuing a steady upward trend, overdoses killed 70,000 people in 2017, the most-recent year for which data is available. Opiates — and mostly synthetic opiates — were identified as the mortis causa in 47,600 of those deaths, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Planning for legal edibles a challenge says P.E.I. Cannabis

New cannabis products — like edibles, beverages, topicals and extracts — will be for sale legally in Canada in mid-December, with regulations on packaging designed to limit appeal and reduce the risk of over-consumption.

Experiment with this, but don't go overboard.— Zach Currie
