Can These Marijuana Stocks Continue To Build Momentum ?

In the past year or so, we have seen that marijuana stocks have started to shift. With so many new updates to the cannabis industry, it can at times be difficult to keep up with where the market is headed. Most investors tend to look at the companies at the top of the pot stock market. This is usually a good place to start, but it does deny a large amount of the potential with small to mid-cap pot stocks.

How does marijuana affect my sleep and dreams?

The first part of an old stoner tale goes something like this: At a certain point, after habitually using marijuana so many consecutive days, you lose the ability to dream. Your head hits the pillow, and your mind becomes a blank canvas until you rise the next morning.

The second part, meanwhile, regards what happens should you stop smoking weed. Instead of another night of silky blackness, your sleep will roar with vivid color, indescribable scenarios, and intense eruptions of dreamscape. It will be like all the dreams you didn’t have while smoking come rushing back all at once in operatic phantasms.

Among Heart Failure Patients, Cannabis Users Have Better Outcomes

A study conducted by the American Heart Association shows that cannabis users actually had a lower risk of atrial fibrillation. And the good news doesn’t stop there.

As any cannabis enthusiast will tell you, all experiences with marijuana are not the same. While people use it for its pleasant effects and therapeutic benefits, the experience isn’t fail safe.

Cannabis is known to sometimes cause an excited, even nervous or anxious reaction depending on the user, sample composition, amount consumed and other elements. Doctors call it an adrenergic state. This state is known to increase the risk of atrial fibrillation, the irregular, chaotic beating of the heart’s chambers and is also known as A-fib.

Drinkables Are The New Edibles. Where, When And How Can You Get Them?

Why do consumers love drinkable cannabis? Let us count the ways. It's discreet, it requires no special equipment, it tastes good, and it's a familiar and safe delivery system. 

Weed-infused drinks make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the cannabis market. It's a sprawling category that includes tinctures to mix with cocktails; non-alcoholic alternatives to wine, beer, or champagne; wellness beverages that can lull you to sleep or take the place of aspirin or ibuprofen after a strenuous game of hoops or tennis; and sparkling sodas that are as appealing to millennials as they are to baby boomers who aren't comfortable lighting up.

Leukemia and medical marijuana: Here are the facts

Few experiences are more devastating than a cancer diagnosis. A leukemia diagnosis can be especially jarring, given that we typically hear of it in movies as a predator of children, even though the medical community has found that children have the highest state of remission at 94 percent, with adults at up to 40 percent after five years.

A cancer of the blood, leukemia affects the bone marrow, red blood cells, white blood cells and the cells that cause clotting. Its symptoms include chills, weakness, susceptibility to infection, weight loss, bruising, swollen lymph nodes and bone pain.

Demand For CBD Oil Could Lead To Christmas Tree Shortage

Growers are choosing to grow crops that are easier to take care of and that produce more money than seasonal Christmas trees.

Christmas trees take their time to grow and develop, which is why some growers are tempted to plant less seasonal and more profitable crops, such as hemp. This change could make it hard for those who are looking for a Christmas tree to find the option they want.

New Research Shows Flushing Plants Before Harvest May Be Unnecessary

The results of a new research trial released this month show that flushing plants before harvest may not improve the quality of cannabis flower. The results seem to contradict the commonly held belief that flushing plants improves the taste and burnability of dried cannabis flower.

Under common, although not universal, cultivation practices, cannabis growers stop fertilizing their plants one to two weeks before harvest in an effort to improve the quality of their finished product.
