A look at legalization in Canada almost one year in

Few in the cannabis community would argue the fact that one of the biggest stories in the movement in the last 5 years was the legalization of adult-use marijuana in Canada. The first large, developed country to legalize on a federal level, Canada was poised to set the tone for legalization around the world.

More teens using marijuana concentrate: What is it?

A large number of teens are using marijuana concentrates — highly potent forms of cannabis — and are more likely to use other substances as well, suggests a new study published this month.

Marijuana concentrates contain high amounts of THC — the psychoactive compound in cannabis — with levels ranging from 40 to 80 percent, or even higher in a few products.

Does marijuana skin cream work?

Various cannabis-related skincare products have hit the market recently with claims of treating everything from acne to psoriasis, or just contributing to that healthy glow.

Research shows the psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana, THC, does have anti-inflammatory properties that could benefit the skin when applied topically, and has shown promise as a potential treatment for conditions such as psoriasis.

We are nearing the end of cannabis prohibition

One constant in history is the law of unintended consequences. As we've learned from hemp’s legalization via the 2018 Farm Bill, and with the ongoing push for federal legalization of recreational cannabis, the end of prohibition will not come in one mighty roar, but as a series of regulations that legitimize markets and create entrepreneurial opportunities, as well as tough entry barriers. Simply put, regulation changes everything.
