Should parts of the recreational cannabis system in Canada be reworked?

After nearly 10 months of having legal cannabis in Canada, the lawmakers are wondering if they should rework parts of the system as it has seriously underperformed in certain provinces.

Canada’s recreational system hasn’t been really the moneymaker many analysts expected it to be. In fact, most of the provinces are still operating with a loss.

Everyone knew there would be significant growing pains in this industry, but some provinces are doing the exact opposite of growing.

This brought up questions such as the one Finance Minister Ernie Steeves dared to ask – should some parts of the recreational cannabis system be reworked?

Cannabis in Latin America gets a new ‘social outlook’

Cannabis in Latin America, without the stigma, could be as clean as any region considered violent-free. In a classic context, the UK and North America hold the biggest market share in the cannabis industry, because it’s a legal business in those regions. How would Latin America fare if allowed to participate in the cannabis market? Investors have indeed found a new fortune in growing the once illicit plant.

Support for legalising cannabis growing among British public, survey finds

Twice as many British adults now support the legalisation of cannabis than oppose it, according to a poll which reveals a “widening gulf” between public opinion and drug laws.

Forty-eight per cent of voters favour legalising recreational use of marijuana, up five points in the past year, with only 24 per cent objecting, found the YouGov survey.

Support for medicinal cannabis was even stronger, with 77 per cent of respondents saying it should be permitted. A similar proportion said they would consider using cannabis-based treatments if there was strong evidence it would benefit them.

How to avoid pesticides when consuming cannabis

Despite its hippie associations and "all-natural" branding, the cannabis industry has been using pesticides for decades. Legal cannabis was supposed to bring pesticides to safe levels but that doesn't necessarily mean consumers will be safe from the negative effects of pesticides — especially since state inspection programs aren't fool-proof, and there is little research on how inhaling pesticides, clinging onto marijuana bud, affect your health, writes Christine Giraud.

Marijuana makes you paranoid? Study suggests your genes are to blame

Weed makes me paranoid. I ate an edible once and became super panicky and I never want to use cannabis again. Marijuana’s supposed to calm you down, but it always makes me feel the opposite.

You’ve probably heard such remarks ⁠— or said them yourself ⁠— in recent years as cannabis inches closer to becoming a mainstream recreational activity. While we’ve leapt forward considerably in our understanding of how cannabinoids interact with out endocannabinoid system and how cannabis can positively impact various medical symptoms, we haven’t yet cracked why marijuana makes some people chillax and others not so much.

UFC Champ Henry Cejudo talks cannabis, UFC, and legalization & stigma in Mexico

If you’ve never seen Henry Cejudo fight, don’t worry, you are not alone. After the blitzkrieg of blows Cejudo delivered in UFC 238, even other fighters like Marlon Moraes can hardly claim that they have. 

Depending on what sport you follow, Henry Cejudo has either been a household name for close to 15 years, or a relatively new addition to the elite tier of UFC fighters. In 2006, while still in high-school, Cejudo won the American Wrestling Federations National Freestyle Tournament at the most elite level. Within two years, Cejudo represented America in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games and brought home the gold, making him the youngest ever Mexican-American Freestyle Wrestling Olympic Champion.

The pechoti method: Can you put weed in your belly button?

While there are the purists who swear by joints, cannabis users continue to find new ways to ingest the plant. There’s edibles, topicals, vaporizers, bongs, sodas, dabs, and sublinguals, to name a few. Perhaps it’s the creative powers of cannabis in action. One method of intake, known as the Pechoti Method, asks you to put cannabis oil in your belly button. While the Pechoti method has gained recent online attention, it’s far from new.
