Cannabis plant evolved super high (on the Tibetan Plateau)

Cannabis may have had high origins. Where the plant comes from has been a bit of a mystery, but analysis of ancient pollen now suggests it evolved some 3 kilometres above sea level on the Tibetan Plateau.

Get hungry for summer’s dankest cannabis dining events

Even in the marijuana Nirvana that is adult-use California, any bars and restaurants that openly allow cannabis consumption can put their liquor licenses in jeopardy, while anyone who publicly advertises a weed dinner risks fines (or worse) for throwing an unlicensed cannabis consumption event.

Still the final frontier of cannabis legalization, a weed-friendly restaurant experience has yet to be fully realized, even though the day is fast approaching when you’ll be able to toke and eat in the same establishment — at least in West Hollywood!

Breaking the stigma surrounding cannabis

Cannabis has long been a drug ingrained in American culture. The perception and stigma surrounding cannabis or “marijuana” from the time I was born to today has changed quite drastically.

My parents grew up with Cheech and Chong poking fun at the drug in their films, simultaneously while the US government scheduled cannabis in the same category as heroin and methamphetamines.

By the time I was a teenager, there was always this cultural idea that if you smoked cannabis, you were dumb or destined to be a failure that wasn’t going anywhere in life. The truth of the matter is you can be smart, can be a normal person and smoke cannabis. It is a monumentally beneficial plant that will not tank your life.

Canada's legalization of weed edibles is another global social experiment

This October, cannabis-infused edibles will be fully legal on the Canadian market.

Despite claims that broader cannabis legalization would change the social, economic and cultural fabric of the country, there is little evidence to suggest that this is the case.

The government itself claimed initially that its primary intent was to legalize cannabis without normalizing it. That’s exactly what it delivered. Allowing Canadians to have access to legal cannabis while keeping the social stigma against routine marijuana use alive was arguably the result the government was looking for.
