1 figure that should have marijuana stock investors concerned

When it comes to the fastest-growing industries on the planet, it's supposed to be marijuana -- and everything else. The global cannabis industry is expected to see sales expand by 38% in 2019, according to a report released earlier this year by the duo of Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, then hit between $50 billion and $75 billion in annual sales by the end of the next decade, up from $12.2 billion in 2018. This type of growth story usually only comes around once or twice per generation.

Note that I said "supposed" to be the fastest-growing industry on the planet. You certainly wouldn't know it right now by looking at the Canadian marijuana market.

These are the Countries most likely to legalize weed next

In October 2018, Canada became the second country after Uruguay—and the first G7 nation—to legalize the recreational use of cannabis. Led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, politicians took the plunge largely to reduce underage access to weed.

So who's next? To formulate some well-educated predictions, we spoke to an ace team of weed experts who have been on the frontline of reform, from region to region, for decades. Come with us as we peek into our bud-crusted crystal ball:

Post-mortem THC tests can not reliably determine intoxication at time of death: study

Impaired driving has been an eternal point of contention in the conversation surrounding cannabis legalization. But many of the reports involving casualties may not be as accurate as previously believed.

The Colorado study, executed by toxicologist and assistant to the coroner Andrea Tully of the El Paso County Coroner’s Office, showed that post-mortem THC testing isn’t adequately reliable to accurately determine whether the deceased was inebriated around the time of death.

How marijuana’s CBD can help with menopause symptoms

“The Change.” The phrase makes women of all ages shudder, yet the majority will indeed experience the effects of menopause, from hot flashes to anxiety and depression to night sweats and more. Anecdotal evidence is pouring in, however, that cannabis, and specifically CBD, can alleviate many of these symptoms and provide much needed comfort.

Let’s start with what menopause is. There are three stages: perimenopause, when the female body’s production of estrogen slows, can last for one to two years; menopause officially begins when a woman has not menstruated in over a year; and postmenopause is the time after menopause has officially ended, but hot flashes and night sweats can still occur for up to a couple years later.

These marijuana stocks have been overlooked by some investors

The marijuana industry has been quite up and down over the course of the past few months. With so many changes occurring throughout the industry, this is undoubtedly going to happen, but some stocks have managed to have less volatility than others.

These companies are making big waves in the cannabis market due to their innovation and the amount of work that they have put into building the future of the industry. Of course, there are still several factors that are changing and will continue to change in the coming months, but for now, it seems as though things are remaining with a decent level of stability.

Present day use of solvent extraction in cannabis extraction

Organic hydrocarbon solvents offer key benefits in cannabis extraction for patients, manufacturers and policymakers alike.

Organic solvent-based extraction is very common throughout the chemical, food, personal care, pharmaceutical and perfumery industries as well as many others. The modern cannabis industry has essentially repurposed current methodologies from these previous industries. Cannabis extraction using organic solvents is easily comparable to the making of absolutes for the personal care and perfumery industries. An absolute is a concentrated, highly aromatic oil extracted from plants.

Celebrities left and right are starting their own cannabis businesses

The industry of cannabis is poised to be dominated by celebrities and their peers, not just through endorsing businesses, but also by starting their own projects.

The cannabis industry has created hundreds and thousands of new jobs for the weakened American economy.

However, it would seem that the top positions are mostly reserved for those in the inner circle of those planning the future of cannabis in America.

According to Marijuana Businesses Daily, about 125,000 jobs are supported by the booming cannabis industry in the US.

The 420 holiday has long been a day of celebration of cannabis culture. But a group of activists has launched an effort to the make the day after into one for grappling with the challenge of creating an equitable, inclusive and diverse cannabis industry.

A day after revelers around the world mark 420, a still spirited — but more sober — summit of cannabis enthusiasts will this year declare their dedication to the fight for a just and equitable legalization of the plant.

50 shades of green: Marijuana and renewables will dominate the TSX Index

From Big Oil to the Big Six, the familiar landscape of the TSX index has been dominated by the classic mix of bankers, drillers, railways and miners. But things are changing, with a new generation of investors espousing different outlooks and trading strategies, and the future is likely to be green: from legal weed to renewables, the future of the biggest stock market in Canada is likely to look very different in years to come.
