Despite setbacks, there are high hopes for Alberta's cannabis industry, say experts

Alberta, by many measures, is leading Canada’s fledgling cannabis industry, with more retail outlets and higher profits when compared to other provinces.

However, with a moratorium on new cannabis retailers, a struggling supply chain and the prospect of new products such as edibles entering the market in October, the question is whether the province can keep its competitive edge.

Cannabis industry expert Deepak Anand believes it not only will, but has the potential to be an industry leader globally.

Marijuana 101: A beginner’s guide to CBD tincture

Tincture is a plant-matter extraction into a carrier oil or other fluid like alcohol or glycerin. CBD is less-often associated with alcohol extractions, so users are more likely to see grapeseed oil and coconut oil, vegetable glycerin and other stable carriers.

Using a tincture is simple. Most tinctures come with a dropper so that you can take measured dosages. Each tincture will have it’s own potency, so they will have different doses listed on the bottle as a general guideline. The good news is that CBD is non-toxic,so if you feel you need an extra dropper full or two, you can go for it.

CBD Ban: Brits take up fight and send lawyers to Brussels

Cannabis lawyers are heading to Brussels next week to challenge a recent decision by the European Union to reclassify food products containing cannabidiol (CBD) and prohibit their sale.

While the rest of the western world moves towards acceptance of cannabis products either medically or recreationally, the European Union pushed back in February, updating a classification of CBD under the Novel Food Regulation.

The law ((EU) 2015/2283), which applies across all member states, means any product deemed as ‘novel’ must gain authorization from food authorities before it can be sold as a foodstuff within the EU.  Food can be considered ‘novel’ if it was not consumed by humans to any significant degree prior to May 1997.

In debate over legal marijuana, Minnesota lawmakers consider forgiveness

If lawmakers legalize recreational marijuana this year, tens of thousands of Minnesotans are poised for forgiveness.

Under legalization bills introduced in the House and Senate, Minnesota would offer to clear people who have been convicted of possessing up to an ounce and a half of marijuana, as well as possession in a motor vehicle.

That could wipe clean the records of nearly 70,000 Minnesotans since 2010 alone, according to data the district courts provided to MPR News. But the total number is likely much higher: the bill directs the attorney general to go back indefinitely to find anyone with petty misdemeanor and misdemeanor marijuana possession offenses on their record who could be eligible for expungement.

The prohibition of cannabis is sexist. And it has been for a long time

Female cannabis plants are the ones worth money — the ones that yield medicine, writes Tess Barker. Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that cannabis and women have long and entangled roots. According to Dr. Ethan Russo, in his 2002 paper 'Cannabis Treatments in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Historical Review,' known instances of women using cannabis medicinally date back to Ancient Mesopotamia. In ancient Judea, the plant was used in childbirth. Doctors in 16th century China prescribed it for menstrual disorders.
