The 3 biggest risks facing Canada's legal marijuana industry

This has been nothing short of a transformative year for the legal cannabis industry. On June 19, Canada's Senate approved an amended version of Bill C-45, which is more commonly referred to as the Cannabis Act.

That, they say, creates opportunities for marijuana to be diverted into the lucrative black market, something that federal authorities have long complained about.

Oregon was one of the first states to legalize medical marijuana in 1998, and in 2014 voters approved allowing recreational use.

Eaze CEO: 'No doubt' Amazon will sell weed

It won’t be on sale this Prime Day, but one day the CEO of cannabis delivery company Eaze thinks Amazon will be in the weed business.

“I think there’s no doubt that eventually Amazon will get into this business. The question is, is that five years, 10 years, or 20 years,” says Eaze CEO Jim Patterson. “I think it will be a bit longer for them … until there’s much more clarity at the federal level.”

With laws changing around the country, legal sales of marijuana are expected to more than double in the next five years. Venture capital has taken notice with a reported $700 million worth of investments. Eaze is one of the most highly funded cannabis startups, delivering products in major cities across California.

Not every CBD oil is created equal.

Differentiating between all of the different types of CBD and different sources of cannabidiol available on the market can be daunting.
