CBD vape pen 101 – Everything you need to know before buying one

There’s a new buzzword: vape pen. If you’re thinking about getting one, here’s what you should know.

DEA to authorize more growers for cannabis research

The Justice Department said Monday it would move forward to expand the number of marijuana growers for federally authorized cannabis research.

The long-awaited move comes after researchers filed court papers asking a judge to compel the Drug Enforcement Administration to process the applications to grow research pot. The DEA began accepting applications to grow marijuana for federally approved research about three years ago, but the agency hasn't acted on the applications.

Both Republican and Democratic lawmakers in Congress have questioned why the Justice Department has taken so long to act. Attorney General William Barr had promised to look into the status of the applications in April.

Australia: Planning permission granted for Victorian cannabis facility

Australia’s Cannatrek has announced the firm has secured planning permission for what it says will be one of the world’s largest medical cannabis facilities.

The AUD $160 million project, given the green light by Victoria’s Greater Shepparton City Council, involves the construction of a 160,000m2 glasshouse; inside which 160 tonnes of medical cannabis could be grown annually. The facility is to be constructed on 178 acres of land previously purchased by Cannatrek.

Beyond cultivation, medicines will also be manufactured at the facility.

While the Australian legal medical cannabis market is still very small given the regulatory minefield doctors and patients must navigate, Cannatrek says it will also pursue multiple export markets.

Medical cannabis driving performance trial announced

MGC Pharmaceuticals (ASX:MXC) has been granted  approval to conduct a controlled trial assessing the effects of a cannabis-based medicine on driving performance.

As legal medical cannabis becomes more widely available throughout the world, there are understandable concerns about the potential impacts on road safety. In Australia, current legislation in most states forbids patients taking cannabis based medical products from driving, which on top of a complex access pathway has impacted patient uptake.

“It has been documented that a key reason for individuals in Australia to decline cannabis products for medical purposes that may benefit them is that it would inhibit them from driving,” says Roby Zomer, co-founder and managing director of MGC Pharma.

Companies push ahead on pot gummy plans despite hazy regulations

Chewy, colourful cannabis-infused gummies in bright colours and in the shape of animals or creatures are among the best-selling edible pot products on the black market -- but Canadians shouldn't expect them on legal shelves.

Regulations that will make edibles legal come into force Oct. 17, exactly a year after Canada legalized the sale and purchase of dried and fresh cannabis, oil, seeds and plants. The rules laid out so far are aimed at keeping the new pot products out of the hands of kids and stipulate they can't be seen as "appealing to young persons" -- but Health Canada has yet to provide additional details on exactly what crosses the line.
