Busiest Holiday For The Cannabis Industry? It’s Not Christmas

There are the customary cultural holidays that we are all familiar with, like Christmas, along with holidays specific to cannabis users, such as 4/20.

In the grand scheme of things, the cannabis industry is still relatively young and we are still learning much about the ups and downs of this industry.

One interesting factor to consider and observe as this industry continues to grow is the effect that the holiday season has on the cannabis industry as a whole.

Let’s take a moment to compare various bits of data regarding the cannabis industry from Headset to see what we can discern from it.

Feeling Down This Holiday Season? Marijuana Might Help

Many people experience stress or depression this time of year and research suggest cannabis could help you through the holiday blues.

Tis the season…for the blues. With all the holiday parties, unpredictable weather, and intense family time (or lack of intense family time), this month elicits strong emotions all around. It can make you feel incredibly grateful and full of love, but it can also spark feelings of loneliness and the inability to connect with holiday cheer.

Canada: Weed sales could hit the jackpot this Christmas

Christmas is already a holiday that encourages over-indulgence, so why not throw a few pot edibles under the tree?

Though the practice is unlikely to come anywhere close to April 20 — better known as 4/20, a day pot users celebrate — consumers do buy more pot products as the season approaches, figures show.

Cannabis sales grew 15 per cent in the lead-up to Christmas 2018 compared with the week before, according to U.S. data from cannabis analytics firm Headset Inc. The increase was most dramatic in edibles, where all segments saw sales grow by over 30 per cent. Chocolate sales increased 41 per cent, while cookie sales were up about 50 per cent.

It’s Time The FDA Regulated CBD As A Food – Not As A Drug

Could the answer to the challenges facing CBD regulators on both sides of the Atlantic be one and the same?

As the CBD industry takes all before it regulators on both sides of the Atlantic struggle to tether it. In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration has warned of the ‘real-risk’ posed by CBD and seem to want to regulate it as a drug.

While regulators overseeing European Union businesses focus on CBD as food supplement –  the U.K. Food Standards Agency (FSA) having resolved this dilemma three years ago.

Is France Set To Embrace A New Cannabis-Friendly Era ?

Despite being Europe’s largest hemp producer France is reliant on imported products to satisfy the demands of its domestic CBD consumers.

As U.S. vaping injuries taper off, new evidence points to vitamin E

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a series of reports on Friday indicating that the outbreak of vaping-related lung injuries appears to be waning, as evidence mounts that vitamin E acetate, a cutting agent used in marijuana vape cartridges, is playing a role in the illnesses.

Hey Indiana, Legal Marijuana Isn’t Going To Doom Your Workforce

It’s not even 2020, and already the Indiana brass is preaching its ravenous desire to keep marijuana prohibition in full effect. This is a strange attitude, too, considering the state is about to have its butt savagely beaten trying to keep a leash on interstate drug trafficking. Its border buddy Michigan just launched a recreational pot market earlier this month, and Illinois is set to roll one out at the beginning of the year. This means that Hoosier high timers and others curious about the pot scene could easily become our pot-slinging neighbors’ best customers.
