The 3 smartest ways to invest in marijuana stocks

Over the next decade, marijuana is projected to be one of the fastest growing industries. Having already more than tripled sales on a worldwide basis between 2014 and 2018 to $10.9 billion, the industry has some Wall Street forecasts calling for $50 billion, $75 billion, or even $200 billion in annual global weed sales by 2030. Figures like these are what make marijuana stocks such an attractive investment opportunity.

Can marijuana cause a person to become aggressive?

If some of the research on the subject of marijuana and violence holds any weight, a society of stoners could create an uprising of evil that only stands to destroy the planet. 

Marijuana use is usually synonymous with peace, love, and a bunch of tree-hugging. It is known as a chill herb where the most common side effects include making people happy and prompting them to laugh a lot more on their way to a Taco Bell drive-thru. By all accounts, marijuana seems to be that one drug which, if legalized on a global scale, might finally give way to a situation where conflicted countries are not trying to kill each other with a wicked vengeance.

Weed addiction – Is it a real thing?

Addiction isn’t something that’s easily defined and understood.

That’s why, from the get to, we have to put to rest the notion that drug addiction only happens when physical dependency comes into existence.

Things are far more complicated than that, especially when we’re dealing with “soft drugs” like cannabis. It’s of crucial importance to understand that addiction is interconnected with mental health, meaning that we mustn’t overlook the psychological aspects of substance abuse.

To put it in plain words – weed addiction is a very real thing.

Marijuana’s effect on sore, aching muscles

The cannabinoids in marijuana not only assist in blocking nerve pain, but they limit the side effects of typical prescription drugs. 

Whether it’s after a long workout or a moving injury, soreness and stiffness can complicate anyone’s life, but they don’t have to. With the rise of opioid addiction, is it possible that marijuana and CBD can alleviate some of the symptoms of sports and back injuries?

128 million people about to gain access to legal pot: What it means for marijuana stocks

Right now, around 41 million people have access to recreational marijuana that's legal at a federal level. Two countries have legalized recreational pot -- Canada and Uruguay. We can't include the millions of Americans who live in the 11 states that have legalized recreational marijuana in our total since marijuana remains illegal at the federal level in the United States.

But very soon another 128 million or so people will gain access to legal marijuana. Legislators in Mexico are finalizing regulations to make marijuana legal. The legislative effort came after the country's Supreme Court ruled last year that Mexico's ban on recreational pot was unconstitutional.

Growing strains: how is the flavour of cannabis determined?

Cannabis cultivators have created thousands of unique strains through complex breeding processes and technical growing methods.

Generally, the growing process of a cannabis plant heavily determines the cannabinoid content within the strain – but what determines the flavour of cannabis?

Cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD), are a chemical substance within strains that connect to the cannabinoid receptors within the patient’s body and brain, causing a stimulating effect. Different strains can be useful for different illnesses depending on their chemical profile.

Tilray supports first human study evaluating cannabis to tackle side-effect caused by breast cancer treatment

A new study is testing for the first time the ability of cannabis to eliminate a major side-effect of breast cancer treatment.

The Nanaimo-based Tilray, Inc., said it has successfully imported medical cannabis into the U.S. for use in a clinical trial aimed at providing relief to people suffering from taxane-induced peripheral neuropathy.

TIPN, a condition that affects more than 67 per cent of women who go undergo chemotherapy, is a progressive condition that can cause pain and numbness in the hands and feet. It often forces doctors to stop the breast cancer treatment early, leading to less effective results. Although there is currently no effective treatment for the condition, use of cannabis has shown promise in tests on mice.
