How To Use CBD To Calm Dogs During The Holiday Season

For most dogs, CBD appears to work best when dosed sublingually. This will get the CBD into the dog’s bloodstream quicker than a CBD infused dog treat.

During the rush of the holiday seasons, it’s easy to forget dogs can get agitated by the sights and sounds of the holiday season. As Jeremy Feldman, Co-Founder and Brand Director of Pet-Ness, observes, “Much like humans, dogs also suffer from mental conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress. The symptoms can become exacerbated during the holiday season.”

What’s the real truth on legalized cannabis in Michigan?

Earlier this year we posted on what’s allowed and what isn’t. Since then, new questions have arisen, which we’re addressing here in this Q&A.

Michigan legalized the sale of cannabis for medical in 2008. To date, thirty-three states have enacted the same law.

Then last November, 57% of Michiganders who took part in the issue voted to legalize recreational marijuana sales. The election was certified in December and the law went into effect, ending marijuana's criminalization. Michigan became the 10th state to make the move. But officials have had a year to set up a system to issue licenses to sell to recreational retailers.

Cannabis May Help Combat the Holiday Blues

The holiday season is now in full swing. For some folks, this means spending tons of money on gifts to reassure their loved ones that they do, in fact, still love them, in spite of all of their shortcomings. There are others, however, that would just assume jam a sharp stick in their eye than endure anything festive this time of year. There are no menorahs or Christmas trees for these people, not on your life, as they have, through a series of unfortunate events along the way, become somewhat callous to all of the lights, carols and fun that other people seem to be having.

Canada: Medical marijuana user refused alcohol sale at Loblaw after cashier smells Cannabis

A medical marijuana user was turned away from an Ottawa Loblaw store, after a cashier refused to sell her beer, because the cashier said the customer smelled like cannabis.

Christie Southward uses marijuana for back pain and anxiety, but she had not been using when she went shopping at the McArthur Avenue Loblaw this week.

“At first I thought he was joking and he was very serious”, Southward told CTV Ottawa.

 “I was getting my groceries, and when it came to my alcohol, the cashier stopped and said he will not sell it to me because I smelled like pot”, she said.

Ontario will scrap lottery system, move to expand retail cannabis market in 2020

The provincial government says that it is scrapping the lottery system for cannabis shop permits and will begin issuing dozens of new retail permits in the spring as part of efforts to open up the weed market.

In its recent fiscal update, the province said that it would move to do away with the lottery system, which has faced criticism.

On Thursday, the province unveiled a timeline for issuing new retail cannabis permits, saying that applications for prospective owners will open on Jan. 6, with the first new licenses to be distributed in April.

Speaking with CP24 Thursday evening, Ontario Attorney General Doug Downey said the government wanted to go to an open market model from the start, but needed time to manage the changes and ensure adequate supply.
