Can cannabis tampons deliver effective menstrual pain relief?

Thousands of women suffer from debilitating menstrual pain that painkillers just can’t cure. It’s time we found a natural solution for our period problems, without the nasty side-effects. Could cannabis hold the key to menstrual pain relief?

For all women, monthly menstruation isn’t something we look forward to. This dreaded ‘time of the month’ creates hormonal, mental and physical changes in our bodies. But for some women, periods aren’t simply a source of general discomfort. They can cause agonizing pain, leaving women unable to move and function normally. Unfortunately, we often feel dismissed when it comes to being open about the true degree of pain we can suffer during the menstruation period.

Edibles will be the jello shots of the marijuana industry

Edibles have a really good shot at becoming the next big party trend in Canada as smoking cannabis in public will be limited, and in some places completely banned.

Do you remember that moment in college when you first saw someone bring jello shots to the party, and then witnessed people getting hammered with them?

Many college kids had that revelation that you can get drunk without having to ingest classic alcoholic drinks, and now all of Canada will have a similar revelation in regards to weed.

Edibles have long been a thing in the cannabis community, but the general public is very ill-informed about the cannabis world, and many who never or rarely used cannabis are not aware that you can eat it and have the same effects.

Is growth quantity the most important factor for investing in marijuana stocks?

There are several important factors to consider when investing in the marijuana stock market. For those who are new to buying cannabis stocks, the most important focus usually lies on the companies that can grow the most of the substance. This may sound like a good place to start, but it does deny a large amount of the value that lies in the lower end of the cannabis market. These companies which reside in the mid to small-cap cannabis market, have a large amount of opportunity to offer the space including new and innovative technology in combination with a large amount of drive for future goals.

This vending machine is revolutionizing how you buy weed

Cannabis tech is experiencing a boom. New industrial innovations in the cannabis space are cropping up all the time. While many of those innovations, such as agri-tech extraction machines and BiFarm automated grow boxes, exist primarily on the commercial B2B plane, the sleek and streamlined greenbox and marinabox robotic retailers are currently disrupting retail dispensaries and even festivals, writes Sara Brittany Somerset.

In the spring of 2017, students at the Vaughn Next Century Learning Center, a charter school surrounded by strip malls in Pacoima, a working-class area of Los Angeles boxed in by freeways northeast of downtown, were under siege.

6 brands who are giving back to the LGBTQ community this pride month

It’s that time of year again. The month-long period where large companies, banks, and politicians start selling products and apparel decorated with rainbow Pride flags, glitter, and slogans like “Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not” and “Yasss”.

Corporations love Pride Month. But it may (or may not) surprise you to learn that the vast majority of companies and organizations who sell Pride merch during June don’t actually do anything to help the community whose imagery and slang they’re all too happy to appropriate. Furthermore, many of them aren’t too keen on showing any support to the LGBTQ community at all during the rest of the year.

Ottawa asks U.S. to note cannabis pardons to ensure accurate picture

Ottawa is encouraging Washington to take careful note of criminal pardons granted to Canadians for pot possession so that U.S. officers have the most accurate information when deciding whether to let people cross the border.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says he made the point to a receptive Kevin McAleenan, the acting U.S. secretary of homeland security, during a meeting in Washington this week.

"It is important for the records that are kept on the American side to reflect the accurate legal status of Canadians," Goodale said in an interview.

Parliament is studying a government bill that would ease the process of obtaining a pardon for possessing a small amount of cannabis now that recreational use of the drug is legal in Canada.
