MLB: Baseball Players can Smoke Cannabis but can't be Sponsored by Weed Companies

With spring training now in full swing, Major League Baseball is further clarifying its stance on marijuana. Players can now consume cannabis without risk of discipline, the league explained in a new memo, but they can't show up to work under the influence and — at least for now — are barred from entering into commercial arrangements with companies in the marijuana industry.

The league also says it's also teaming with product-testing organization NSF International to analyze and certify legal, contaminant-free CBD products in order to allow teams to store them on club premises.

Artisanal Vs. Pharmaceutical Cannabidiol

A preliminary study to be presented at an upcoming American Academy of Neurology conference claims teens with epilepsy treated with pharmaceutical CBD fared better than those using “artisanal” cannabidiol.

“Artisanal” refers to a product made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal cannabidiol is manufactured outside of what would be considered an industrial laboratory environment. The preference for artisanal cannabidiol could be any of a number of reasons – including cost. It’s been used by some patients for years to help manage epilepsy.

Cannabis Drinkables – Are They More Popular than Edibles?

Cannabis is undoubtedly having a moment. In some of the biggest markets around the world, both CBD and THC – the most prevalent of the cannabinoids found in the plant – are being added to all manner of products. But could Cannabis ‘drinkables’ soon be more popular than ‘edibles’?

In countries such as Canada, which launched ‘Cannabis 2.0‘ in October, and a growing number of states in the USA, Cannabis offers big opportunities to new and existing businesses. And in no area is this truer than the food and drinks industry.

Michigan's regulated marijuana market to lose significant source of cannabis

Michigan is phasing out a significant source of medical marijuana sold at dispensaries.

Licensed caregivers will be prevented from selling marijuana to the regulated market beginning on Oct. 1, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced in a bulletin Monday.

The original intent of caregivers was to provide cannabis to up to five medical cardholders. But the state allowed caregivers to sell to licensed growers and processors to overcome a shortage in marijuana.

Now that the state has nearly 200 licensed medical cannabis growers in Michigan, the MRA is beginning to cut off caregivers to allow the market to work itself out.
