3 top cannabis stocks to invest in Today

An oversupply of product has led to difficulties in the marijuana industry, where many companies have seen significant declines in stock prices recently. A Centers for Disease Control report of 800 vaping-related deaths and injuries has also likely scared investors away.

How smokable hemp is replacing tobacco cigarettes

Tobacco smoking has for a long time been known to cause a whole host of diseases, including many types of cancer. 

Thanks to conclusive scientific studies and subsequent public health warnings, the number of tobacco smokers continues to drop every year. However, quitting isn’t easy thanks to nicotine’s strong addictive qualities. This means many ex-smokers turn to other sources of nicotine (like patches and gum) in order to satisfy their cravings.

Can CBD clear-up your complexion? Here's what you need to know

The beauty industry loves a good It ingredient. Whether  the skin-plumping benefits of hyaluronic acid (which may not be that great, I’ll report back) or the brightening effects of vitamin C, by the time one fabulous ingredient starts making headlines, there are already five products waiting in the wings to be scooped up by consumers.

Aside from vitamin C, most of these “skin saviours” lack the clinical data to back up what’s being advertised. So, when cannabis derivatives started making their way into serums, lotions and makeup a few years ago it was exciting, to be sure, but it had some people wondering if they really were the all-natural wonder that would save our complexions.

Why I use cannabis to help treat my adult ADHD

Cannabis is decidedly not a cure-all for this condition, but for some people, such as myself, its effects can provide a stimulant free adjustment of both attitude and attention.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a complicated bit of neurodiversity. Sometimes you’re an attention superhero who’s as focused as a spotlight, bingeing the grandest projects into the wee hours of the morning. Other times, you’re a mopey, distracted mess, unable to do the most basic of tasks for days or weeks on end.

Though it’s a complex life that isn’t easy, it’s got its perks — and fervent and seemingly limitless creativity can be among them.

‘Marijuana’ vs. ‘cannabis’: Study finds different terms make no difference

With the rise of legal weed, you might have noticed a slight change of terminology since the illicit days of the drug — most notably, many are calling it “cannabis” rather than “marijuana.”

Some have argued that the term “cannabis” should be used instead of “marijuana” to help build a new image for the drug, away from the latter’s history and stigma.

The name “marijuana” was largely adopted in the 20th century by prohibitionists as a way to scare white people from using it because it sounded foreign.

“Cannabis,” on the other hand, is the scientific name for weed and presents a fresh start to build a friendly image of the drug.

Cannabis could ease symptoms of depression and suicidal thoughts in PTSD patients

Cannabis could ease the symptoms of depression and thoughts of suicide in people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to research.

The study involved 24,089 people aged 15 and above, who filled out the 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey on Mental Health. 420 of the participants had been previously diagnosed with PTSD, a form of anxiety disorder triggered by traumatic experiences such as violent assaults, serious health problems and accidents.

Will Marijuana Stocks Build More Momentum This Month?

Pot stocks have gotten off to quite a solid start as we move deeper into the month of November. With the past few months showing some major pullbacks, the current state of pot stocks looks like it could be turning that around. One of the major factors comes as we end a large amount of controversy in the past few months in regard to vaping related illnesses, and a general uncertainty amongst pot stock investors.

2 stocks that are crashing fast!

It can be challenging to witness stocks that you have invested in on the decline, right before your very eyes. You look for stocks that can provide you with high returns in the future. Facing losses is the last thing you want to think about when investing in stocks.

However, stocks in a volatile industry are prone to both significant gains and crippling losses. I think you would agree that one of the most volatile sectors operating on the TSX right now is the legal marijuana industry.

Companies rose to phenomenal heights in anticipation of the legalization of recreational marijuana. In lieu of reaching profitability and rising to greater heights, pot producers are struggling to achieve profitability.

CBD products may yield cannabis-positive urine drug tests

People who use CBD products with a high content of CBD and a low content of THC are being warned that they may yield positive drug test results.

In a study of six adults, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report evidence that a single vaping episode of cannabis that is similar in chemical composition to that found in legal hemp products, such as CBD products, could possibly result in positive results on urine drug screening tests commonly used by many employers and criminal justice or school systems.
