Which marijuana stocks are proving their values this week?

Value is something that has been hard to determine in the world of marijuana stocks as prices fluctuate so heavily and so often. Despite this, it seems as though viewing the substance as a commodity may be one of the fairer ways to determine the value of a given company. Of course, this only works for the companies that grow the substance, but these also happen to be the most volatile. Other companies such as those a part of the ancillary services market on cannabis are able to offer different things to the market that make the value more easily attainable.

The potential & promise of the cannabis beverage market

“The day that Coca-Cola enters the cannabis industry” has long been the sort of specter that activists and investors alike have conjured to symbolize the arrival of the corporate hoard to the legal weed party, a specter that marches alongside “the day the suits from Goldman Sachs arrive” and “the day Monsanto patents its own strain.”

In other words, it seems inevitable that Coca-Cola will one day create a cannabis-infused beverage — most likely if the federal government legalizes cannabis — and that is in large part because there is an eager audience of people who want to consume cannabis in liquid form.

How cannabis slows down the effects of macular degeneration

Macular degeneration (MD) is the highest cause of vision loss in the U.S., affecting over 10 million Americans. At present, it is considered an incurable disease. But what is happening in the eye to cause MD?

MD is a deterioration of the central part of the retina, the back layer. That layer, called the “macula,” records images and sends them back to the brain. It’s in charge of focusing vision and helps humans read, recognize faces and many more important things. Without a functioning macula, the center of the field of vision is blurry, becoming worse over time.

Macular degeneration mostly affects people over the age of 50 or 60. Right now, most treatments include injections and target endothelial cells, which line blood vessels.
