woman's eyes

Regardless of how you use cannabis, one thing is clear – it can cause both immediate and long-term effects including changes in perception and increased heart rate, to name a few.

To that end, there are two sides to a story. (Benzinga)

This cannabis stock just made history

cannabis

Is this the industry's watershed moment, or is this just a one-off exception?

The marijuana industry still isn't legal in the U.S. even though dozens of states permit marijuana for either recreational or medical use. There are even many marijuana companies that trade on the stock exchanges that you can invest in today to gain exposure to the fast-growing industry.

However, not all marijuana companies can trade on the NYSE or Nasdaq. Specifically, plant-touching marijuana companies based in the U.S. aren't able to do so because they operate in violation of federal laws. But in May, one stock became an exception to the rule and made history.

Cannabis makes crypto connection

bitcoin

The cannabis industry has tried valiantly to incorporate crypto into its business with little success. It was seen as a great way to work around a banking system that was hostile toward the cannabis industry. However, the uptake has been slow and uneven results have caused many to stay on the sidelines in wait and see mode. That hasn’t kept some in the industry though from jumping in with both feet.

sleeping woman

Encouraging outcomes in recent studies have the authors of a recent review calling for more research on the effect of cannabinoids on sleep disorders.

A review published in Nature and Science of Sleep found promising results of cannabinoid medicine on sleep disorders in several studies, which was a sign to the authors that further research to explore this relationship would be helpful in this field.

The review used studies that were taken from PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, and Scopus that were searched between January and February 2022. The review was limited to clinical research, except in cases of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), narcolepsy, and idiopathic hypersomnia, where preclinical data is used at times.

Second cannabis delivery operator eyes Tech Circle site in Natick

cannabis

For generations, Michael Marinaro’s family honed their cultivation techniques in the vineyards of Naples, Italy. Years later, the first-generation Italian-American is drawing on those techniques — not for grapes, but another agricultural pursuit: cannabis. 

Marinaro, CEO of Tyngsborough-based cultivator BadaBloom!, is part of the team behind Trevor Express, a proposed adult-use marijuana delivery operator seeking to open in Natick.

The company was formed through a partnership with Bada Bloom! — which holds provisional licenses from the state’s Cannabis Control Commission — and Revolutionary Clinics, which operates medical marijuana dispensaries in Cambridge and Somerville.

Can you ask your doctor for a cannabis prescription instead of painkillers?

woman

Keep in mind that doctors are a wealth of knowledge, but medical marijuana and its benefits are a very new science and not all medical professionals are up to date with the latest developments. 

It is completely understandable to have skepticism towards prescription pain medication. America’s opioid crisis continues to take record numbers of lives, while many others live quietly addicted to pain medication. 

If you injure yourself or require surgery, you are likely going to experience pain. You also might want nothing to do with potentially-addictive pain medication when it is offered. Marijuana, as we have previously reported, can be a great alternative to opioids. But will your doctor prescribe you weed instead of painkillers?
