Are marijuana stocks worth it?

Only a year ago, we saw the majority of pot stocks in the industry rise alongside the whole of the market. It seems as though the most recent volatility has all but shifted that notion. The current state of pot stocks seems to remain highly volatile, but it does look like the industry is on its way to maturing. Currently, pot stocks are still very much in their infancy. This means that the rampant price swings are quite common amongst the whole of the market.

Canine arthritis is a real problem and cannabis could help

More than 70 million dogs in America are currently diagnosed with osteoarthritis. It’s a painful condition, especially for dogs in their senior years. 

Cannabis isn’t just for humans. The active compounds in the plant are also showing promise in the lab when it comes to treating the pain associated with certain types of canine arthritis.

Although typically referred to as a single condition, arthritis is actually a category of more than 100 diseases and conditions that affect joints and their surrounding tissue. Pain and swelling, stiffness, and aching joints are common symptoms. There is no known cure, and it is not just something that affects humans.
