Sweets, consumer products with marijuana extract become hot topic in Thailand

After a famous Thai actor was widely reported to have allegedly given a certain type of candy containing marijuana extract that causes dizziness and irregular heartbeat to a girl, sweets or other consumer products with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) have become a hot topic on social media.

THC has psychoactive properties that help in relaxation and reduce stress if they are taken in the right amount, but can be dangerous if consumed in exceeding doses.

The side effects of THC include a dry mouth, thirst, tachycardia, slow response, red eyes and memory loss.

The substance is popular in foreign countries, where it is mixed in snacks such as jelly, candy and chocolate in safe amounts.

America’s best drug dealers are A-list celebrities

Over the past two decades, Americans have proved willing to do lots of things at Martha Stewart’s behest. They will decoupage. They will make their own holiday wreaths. They will boil pasta and tomatoes in the same pot, at the same time. Perhaps most important for Stewart, they will buy things with her name on them—bedding, cookware, magazines. Soon they might even buy Martha Stewart–branded weed.

The great European cannabis cosmetics confusion

If the “recreational” discussion is off the table for now except in a few local sovereign experiments (Luxembourg, Switzerland, Denmark, Holland), and the medical discussion is mired in “efficacy” and payments (Germany, UK), where does that leave this third area of cannabis products?

Namely cosmetics.

The answer? Because this conversation involves cannabis, as usual, the discussion is getting bogged down in confusion even as industry groups press for clarification and guidelines.

Marijuana growers report increasing cross-pollination from hemp farms

Outdoor marijuana growers are reporting an increase in cross-pollination from hemp farms, a development that could mean marijuana cultivators might lose upwards of tens of thousands of dollars if their plants become unmarketable as flower products.

As the marijuana and hemp industries increasingly share the same cultivation territory, the number of conflicts is likely to increase, particularly in areas with thriving outdoor cannabis cultivation.

Up to 1 Million Kilos of marijuana production has been cut in Canada for 2020

At this time last year, there arguably wasn't a hotter or more popular investment opportunity than marijuana stocks. It's not hard to understand why, either, if you simply look at the industry's recent growth trends or Wall Street's sales forecasts.

Marijuana stocks make moves for the holiday season

Wintertime has historically been a period where many marijuana stocks are able to recover from their post-summer lows. The past six months in the pot stock market have definitely left a lot to be desired. The large decline we have seen in that period is due to a variety of factors including shifting legislation and general uncertainty as to where the industry is headed in the next few years. These factors are quite common amongst infant markets and pot stocks are no exception.

Harvesting, processing hemp may be expensive for new farmers

The USA has a new boom for hemp farmers. Though it is forbidden to consume cannabis at the federal level, 33 states legalized its usage for medical purposes and 11 states don’t mind about you smoking hemp for your personal advantage. 

Let’s distinguish the difference between hemp and marijuana. There are over 50 thousands of goods that have hemp as one of the ingredients. They include clothes, cosmetics, beverages, food, construction supplies, etc. These two types of crops are cultivated from one sort of plant, Cannabis sativa L. However, hemp has only 0.3% of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the addictive component of marijuana. This means, that hemp can’t make you high and doesn’t have a similar effect as smoking a joint of marijuana.
