Cannabis edibles selling out quickly across N.S.

NSLC Spokesperson Beverly Ware tells NEWS 95.7 that stock is already running low for newly released cannabis edibles.

A small initial shipment originally arrived in stores on Monday, December 23, consisting of soft chews and chocolates, tea bags and vaping products were already selling out.

Halifax's Clyde Street store — the only stand-alone cannabis store — sold out of both chocolates and chews on Monday.

As of Friday afternoon, Ware says "almost all" stores are now running low on cannabis gummies and chocolate.

Ware also added that stores still have a limited stock of vape products and teas, but stores are not expected to receive any more product until the New Year.

Washington regulators relax packaging rules for some cannabis candy

State regulators have resolved some of the rancor that followed the announcement late last year that certain types of cannabis-infused candy would be taken off store shelves.

The Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board approved new regulations on packaging and labeling marijuana products earlier this month that the agency says are intended to keep them out of the hands of children. While the new rules prohibit marijuana products featuring “a name, design or brand” that is similar to something you’d see in a candy or toy shop, they aren’t as sweeping as the emergency ban swiftly approved last year, said Chris Marr, a former state legislator who is now a consultant for the new industry.

'Everything's been selling': Sales sky-high at city's few cannabis stores open Christmas Day

Two cannabis stores open in Edmonton on Christmas Day saw a huge flow of sales, indicating the city had a rather green Christmas despite the snow and cold.

Sam Annan, owner of the two Uncle Sam’s Cannabis locations open on Wednesday, said at least 100 customers had come into the two stores between opening at 10 a.m. and around 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

“Everything’s been selling,” he said Wednesday, adding that many customers said they had driven all over looking for an open cannabis store. “It’s been very busy.”

This month, Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) broke tradition and permitted liquor and cannabis stores to remain open on Christmas Day.

Annan said he saw the opportunity to drum up some business while some other competitors stayed closed.

Video fuels speculation Coca-Cola plans to offer a cannabis drink

Coca-Cola Co. is dousing speculation that it’s getting into the cannabis business.

Speculation surged after a video posted to YouTube — since deleted — by a user with the screen name “Gabor the Blind Guy” showed a Coca-Cola can with a childproof lid.

The man in the video says that his father is a head engineer for a company that “produces bottling and capping machines for many major pharmaceutical and food companies.”

He then says that Coca-Cola is planning on debuting a new line of its classic drink in Canada that will feature CBD extract, the non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that treats pain but doesn’t get you high.

The rules regarding recreational marijuana in Illinois

In less than a week, Illinois will allow recreational marijuana.

But there are loopholes.

CBS 2’s Chris Tye has the loose ends you may have missed.

Most of the questions about weed first require answers about in what form it’s being consumed.

Question 1:  How much can I have?

Thirty grams of weed in flower form is the max, which is typically somewhere between 30 to 50 joints worth. A gram is roughly the weight of a paperclip.

If consuming cannabis concentrate – think oil cartridges and medicated muscle creams – then five grams is the cap. If it’s edibles, like brownies or gummies, then 500 milligrams is the most you can have. While it can wildly vary, that’s usually 50 edibles worth.

How to pass a urine drug test

There are few statements more frightening for a regular marijuana user than “We are going to need you to take a urine drug test.” This seemingly innocuous statement is enough to send even the most rational individuals online to try to determine how to pass a urine test. Even though recreational and medicinal marijuana is increasingly becoming legal across the country, it is still standard practice for employers to request a THC urine drug test as a condition for employment or to require employees to submit to random drug testing.
