Black market pot entered CannTrust facility, flowed into legal market last year: Sources

Senior operating staff working at CannTrust Holdings Inc.’s Pelham, Ont. facility late last year brought cannabis seeds from the black market into production rooms, leading to some illicitly-grown pot flowing into the legal market, according to internal company documents obtained by BNN Bloomberg and four sources directly familiar with the matter.

The documents suggest that, in an apparent effort to conceal the black market cannabis seeds from regulatory inspections and other staff members, some CannTrust employees changed the names of as many as 20 strains to those which the company was licensed to sell in the legal medical and recreational markets.

Can you overdose on CBD?

While it may not be known to many, the truth is that Cannabis, also known as the Marijuana plant, has been cultivated for its medicinal, physical, and psychoactive properties for thousands of years.

Old records say that the first medicinal use of the cannabis plant could date back to 2000 BC when the then emperor of China Shen Neng drank marijuana tea to treat various ailments like poor memory, gout, malaria, etc

Many years later in the 19th century, William Osler, considered to be a “Father of Modern Medicine”, stated that he believed that the cannabis plant could effectively treat migraines.

3 undervalued cannabis companies

Until now the cannabis industry and the stocks that have performed the best are the large companies with huge market caps. Investors have focused on these companies since their survival in the growing industry seems to be more likely than some of the smaller companies that are at risk of being crowded out.

Mid-sized companies have gone slightly under the radar, leaving them with reasonable valuations and offering investors a major opportunity if it’s taken soon.

As Canada moves toward the second wave of legalization, these mid-sized companies are poised to break out, especially in the coming months, as a lot of new capacity comes online with construction projects finishing.

Enjoying Edibles

A study was recently released stating that chocolate cannabis edibles are difficult to accurately test for cannabinoid levels. This doesn’t surprise me, as it’s long been known that chocolate is a psychoactive substance by itself. It clearly is a stimulant due to the caffeine in the cocoa seeds. Plus, it also contains that bit of bliss that prompted a scientist to bestow the Greek name theobroma on the active ingredient, literally meaning “food of the gods.” When mixed with entheogenic substances, such as magic mushrooms, you are guaranteed to come on faster to the experience.
