The municipality of Garray (Soria) in Spain could boast until recently that it hosted “the largest rose greenhouse in Europe.”

 
However, the company that owned it, Aleia Roses, went into liquidation, putting more than two hundred workers out of employment.

That was a year ago, but now, a new firm, Ondara, has acquired the entire company. Although at first, the new owners wanted to make roses compatible with other crops, between February and April this year it decided to uproot the rose bushes altogether to focus on “the new project”: medicinal cannabis.

Using cannabis may not slow down sperm, but it could reduce its numbers

U.S. researchers acknowledge that new study results should not be considered irrefutable, but they still offer some guidance about whether or not men should be consuming cannabis if trying to start a family.

Noting that cannabis consumption is common among men presenting for a fertility evaluation, the investigators suggest using weed “may have a detrimental effect on semen quality, particularly morphology and volume.”

London-listed marijuana business Kanabo (KNB.L) has struck a deal that it says will make it Europe's biggest publicly traded cannabis company.

Kanabo said on Monday it had agreed terms to buy the European operations of Canada's Materia, a cannabis processor and supplier. Exact terms weren't disclosed but Kanabo said the deal would be paid for through shares and subject to performance-related goals.

"The only part that we’re not involved in now in the supply chain is cultivation," Kanabo's chief executive Avihu Tamir told Yahoo Finance UK. "Our belief is that cultivation will be a commodity like other agricultural products. We believe the value is in the last mile."

Assessment, documentation, and education regarding cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) use among cystic fibrosis (CF) patients varies across centers in the U.S., according to a survey of nearly 300 CF healthcare providers.

This variability may be related partially to the different laws between U.S. states regarding these controversial substances, the researchers noted.

The data also highlighted the need for more educational materials about cannabis-based products and CF to allow care teams to have knowledgeable conversations with patients.
