New Poll Finds 60% of Americans Don't Understand What CBD Is

 Although CBD has been covered extensively in the media as of late, and products are making their way to shelves, most consumers have never tried a CBD product, don't know what CBD is, or don't know the difference between CBD, marijuana and THC.

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant, the same plant that marijuana and hemp come from. CBD is a naturally occurring substance used in oils, topicals, and ingestibles for wellness purposes including relieving pain, easing anxiety and alleviating cancer-related symptoms.

Invisibly, using its Realtime Research tool, polled 1,087 Americans to learn about their knowledge of, and interest in, using CBD products.

Make These Delicious Cannabis-Infused Mocktail Recipes At Home

It’s entirely likely you or someone you know has made the unfortunate and all-too-easy party blunder of imbibing too much alcohol and then adding cannabis to the mix. What seems like a natural social combination of a few drinks and a few joints can quickly turn into nauseous, seemingly unending awfulness. The effects of both cannabis and alcohol can creep up on you unexpectedly, as your body interacts with the intake of chemicals at different speeds. I’ve certainly questioned on many a dark morning the plausibility of ever combining the two reliably, under any circumstances. The jury’s still out.

Somebody Should Let Federal Government Know Americans Want Legal Marijuana

You or someone you know wants the United States government to legalize marijuana. In fact, it’s more likely than not that most of the people you rub elbows with on any given day support ending federal pot prohibition.

Ireland: Almost 40% favour legalising cannabis for recreational use, over 90% in favour of medicinal use

ALMOST 40% OF Irish people believe cannabis should be legalised for recreational use and there is an overwhelming support for the medical use of cannabis. 

New polling by Red C on behalf of The Journal shines a light on the nation’s views on legalising cannabis, with only 4% of people opposed to the medical use of cannabis.  

At present, the use of four cannabis-based products is allowed in Ireland in strict circumstances and under a pilot scheme.

There is near uniformity across different age groups in believing that medical use should be legal, but opinions vary on whether recreational use of cannabis should be permitted.

Now, a group of social equity leaders from across the state who make up the California Cannabis Equity Alliance are planning a protest that will lay out their demands and wishes for the state.

Is Cannabis Legal In D.C.?

The District of Columbia is not a state, and a good chunk of the land is federally owned, where cannabis is not legal. D.C. currently sits in a bit of a gray area. Here’s what consumers and operators should know.

I recently relocated to Washington, D.C. to join our East Coast practice group and have been inundated with inquiries surrounding the legal framework of recreational cannabis (i.e., marijuana and hemp) in the nation’s capital. So, in light of this overwhelming interest, I thought I’d briefly summarize this issue for our readers.

The Number of Americans Who Support Marijuana Legalization Will Surprise You

Almost every American supports some marijuana legalization, which is nothing short of amazing in these divided times. The only difference is in what exactly they support. Also, the level of support differs depending on the age of the American you ask.

That said, a new report from the Pew Research Center finds Americans largely in agreement about the legalization of marijuana. That’s worthy of note at a time when so many Americans agree over nothing.

What Can Marijuana Strain Names Tell You About A Product?

Having a regulated system of naming cannabis strains takes the pressure off marketing and PR strategists that most consumers feel are coming up with meaningless names.

Cannabis products are named the same way everything else in the world is named. Some names are unusual, some fascinating, some silly, and others logical. Most of these names have a tale behind them.

There are also cannabis strains that are named after the other older strains in the generation. A perfect example of this can be found in the naming system of the Kush varieties. Strains like Sputnik and Pre-98 Bubba Kush were named after unforgettable events in history.
