Don't Ignore Women In Weed

Five years ago the shelves of most dispensaries housed sugary edibles, strong concentrates and a selection of flower with as much THC as a grower could manage. The industry and its products were geared towards the male consumer who dominated the market.

Fast forward to 2020 and markets like California are seeing a rise of women-centric cannabis products and services -- low dose mints, high end topical oils and lotions, CBD bath balms, mini-joints with low levels of THC that everyone can enjoy.

Beware Of Fake Celebrity Cannabidiol Endorsements

A bunch of celebrities have been jumping on the medical and adult-use cannabis bandwagon. Where they haven’t; some have been pushed onto it – without permission.

The last thing a relatively new industry needs are snake-oil salesmen and shonky marketing tactics, particularly where that industry is focused on health and wellness.

Here Are Some Of The Weirdest Products Containing CBD

CBD is the latest wellness trend, one that makes appearances in the most unlikely products.

The use of CBD in the health and wellness products has been shown to be helpful in relieving pain and inflammation, as well as functioning as a natural sleep aid.

Louisiana Supreme Court to hear arguments against life sentence over $30 weed sale

The Louisiana Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on behalf of a military veteran sentenced to life in prison for selling $30 of weed.

Derek Harris sold handed an undercover law enforcement officer who knocked on his Abbeville, La. door in 2008 exactly 0.69 grams of cannabis. Thanks to the efforts of a zealous Vermilion Parish prosecutor and Louisiana’s habitual-offender law, the transaction landed Harris a life sentence in prison with no chance of parole.

California Tests Find Illegal Vapes Tainted With Additives

California officials announced Monday that marijuana vape cartridges seized in illegal shops in Los Angeles contained potentially dangerous additives, including a thickening agent blamed for a national outbreak of deadly lung illnesses tied to vaping.

Officials also found that the illegal vapes confiscated in the December raids typically were not as potent as advertised, and sometimes contained just a fraction of the THC claimed on the labels, according to state testing results. THC is the chemical in marijuana that makes users feel high.

The findings highlight the risk for consumers at underground shops and delivery services that are common in Los Angeles and elsewhere around California, officials said.

Illinois: More People Apply for Medical Marijuana To Avoid Paying High Taxes

Think about the tax revenue we could generate from the legalization of marijuana. That’s the spiel the cannabis advocacy community has been selling for decades to get a square nation to embrace greener times. But now that lawmakers are starting to listen to the cries — moving to legalize the leaf in their respective neck of the woods — the tax thing has sort of stuck in their craw. In Illinois, which just went legal at the beginning of the year, customers are seeing some of the highest tax rates in the nation on marijuana sales. It’s given them a bit of sticker shock, too. Some of them are even threatening to stay put in the underground market until the legal stuff is more affordable. But others have come up with a better plan to avoid paying the state’s high pot taxes.

There is No Proof Marijuana Use Lowers IQ

Cannabis users are no strangers to being judged based on unproven stereotypes. For decades we were told that marijuana use would kill our brain cells, fill our lungs with cancer and lead us down a road to harder drugs and eventually an early death. And while the Internet has done much to dispel those myths, the spread of information works both ways.
