Every year, we hear the same old myth about laced Halloween candy. But it’s just that—a myth, not a truth.

With every Halloween that passes, articles and news coverage warning parents about finding cannabis-infused edibles in their kid’s candy bags are revived. The fact is that these warnings and tall tales, while issued with good intentions, are simply not rooted in truth.

In my view, investors should probably avoid buying shares of Sundial Growers (NASDAQ:SNDL) and Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQ:ACB). Neither of the Canadian marijuana companies is profitable, and both reported plummeting quarterly revenue in their most recent earnings update. 

But that doesn't mean the two stocks are equal, and I see one of the two as the clear winner of the matchup. I even see one of them eventually becoming an excellent investment once a few key things improve. Let's investigate why.

Are Attitudes About Marijuana Changing Within The Catholic Church?

The fact that the Catholic Church is receptive to medical marijuana should instill hope that their stance on recreational cannabis use could change over time.

As societal norms evolve, institutions like government and religion haven’t always been quick about catching up to the times. Often enough, traditional institutions like churches and government entities are among the very last to enact reforms based on societal changes. This has been the case with numerous issues in the past including gay marriage, stem cell research and, most recently, cannabis use.

A lot of people nowadays associate strict prohibition of cannabis with outdated War on Drugs era propaganda. But does the Catholic Church fall into that category? The answer might just surprise you.

There are key differences between edibles and smoke marijuana, from their dosage to effects. Here are 7 of the most important ones.

If you’ve been consuming marijuana for a while, you know that consumption methods can greatly affect your high. While both edibles and flower contain THC, the highs they produce are different.

It’s all up to the person. While some enjoy a healthy mix of both, the majority choose a path and stick to it. People who prefer edibles tend to be older, taking advantage of powerful results while avoiding the hassle and damages of smoking. Those who smoke joints don’t need as much expertise or planning, resulting in a loose and less committed experience.

Can Cannabis Keep Your Brain Young?

New studies are showing that using cannabis can help slow aging in the brain.

The stereotypical weed smoker is depicted as a slow dimwit with the inability to harbor productive thoughts for more than a few seconds. They are motivated by their hedonistic tendencies and want to get “high” as much as possible.

In 2021, we know this is not true considering that almost half of all US adults have tried cannabis at one point in time. While this harmful stereotype was used to deter people from smoking under the assumption that “cannabis negatively impacts the brain” – science is shedding new light on this topic.
