Canadian Firms Forced to Play Waiting Game as Germany Hits Pause on Cannabis Licensing Process

Germany is seen by many as the crown jewel of the European medical marijuana market. Canadian companies hoping to grow cannabis in Germany are looking at a delay of several months or more, following a German court decision on Wednesday to halt the government’s tender process for cultivation licences. A number of Canadian companies and their German subsidiaries were believed to have been on the shortlist for the 10 licences, including Canopy Growth Corp., MedReleaf…

“I Can’t Imagine Practising Without It”: Local Vet Says Cannabis-derived Cbd Helps Her Four-legged Clients

Dr. Katherine Kramer has seen the headlines about veterinarians in Canada decrying the use of cannabis-derived CBD on pets. “It’s interesting,” she tells the Straight by phone from her office at Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital, where she has practised veterinary medicine since 2011. “A lot of vets are publicly saying, ‘No, there’s not enough research,’ or, ‘We can’t use it, it’s illegal,’ but in private, they are saying something else.” For the last five years,…

It got me through college. I opened a dispensary after college,” says Warm, 33, who later sold his dispensary, purchased a cannabis farm and…

Cannabis: the Ideal Paediatric Medicine?

CANNABIS CULTURE - I was rewatching the documentary The Scientist, which looks at how Raphael Mechoulam and his team discovered tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the endocannabinoid system (ECS). At the 33:30 mark, there’s a section titled “Hashish for Children”.  To quote from the film: “INTERVIEWER: So in 1995, you had an idea of testing THC on children.

A Running List of Canada’s Biggest Weed Hypocrites

These former narcs have seen the light—now that there’s billions of dollars to be made. Not so long ago, Stephen Harper was Canada’s prime minister and he was warning us all that weed was “infinitely worse” than tobacco. Harper, you’ll recall, favoured a tough-on-crime agenda that included mandatory minimum sentences for certain drug crimes—laws that were eventually struck down as unconstitutional. During his tenure, Health Canada also spent $7 million on anti-drug ads, including one…

House Committee Approves, Advances Medical Cannabis Legislation

Over the objections of law enforcement and health officials, a second House committee approved a bill Wednesday that would legally allow some Tennesseans to use medical cannabis. The measure, sponsored by Rep.

Cannabis news worldwide -- Changes to cannabis laws unlikely

Changes to cannabis laws unlikely

CHEYENNE – Efforts to strengthen Wyoming’s marijuana laws are likely dead for now.The Wyoming Legislature has found itself at an impasse in the last several sessions over the issue. The Joint Judiciary Interim Committee passed two bills leading up to the 2018 budget session, one for each chamber, attempting to change marijuana laws. They were meant to address concerns put forth by law enforcement and courts with regard to products flowing in from Colorado, where recreational and medical use are legal.Wyoming’s laws were written several decades ago, when the plant form of the drug was by far the most prevalent manifestation. Today, in addition to concentrates such as shatter and wax, edible and liquid-infused products are increasingly commonplace. Wyoming law states possession of 3 ounces or more of marijuana in plant form is considered a felony in the state, but it lacks definition when it comes to other products that are often higher in the drug’s into…

Cannabis Ingredient ‘Could Help Cocaine and Alcohol Addicts Stay Clean’, Study Finds

Anti-drug campaigners like to portray weed as a ‘gateway’ drug which leads on to harder substances – but could cannabis actually stop addicts relapsing? A preclinical study has shown that an ingredient in cannabis, CBD, may help to stop addicts relapsing to take drugs such as cocaine and alcohol. ‘Cannabidiol’ (CBD), is a chemical from cannabis which campaigners claim helps with diseases including cancer and Crohn’s disease. - Read the entire article at Metro News.

Terpene Supplementation

You know how terpenes are very volatile and therefore easily lost during extraction processes? Well, most of the important ones in Cannabis can be bought in pure form, like limonene and myrcene, probably the two most abundant. Could also get pinene but who really wants it? You could just add turpentine if you're a pinene fan. It's almost all pinene, just pinene doesn't smell that great, kind of like Pine Sol.

My point is that if you don't have to worry about preserving terpenes during...

Weed has long held a negative stereotype in popular culture.

Cannabis stores could set up shop along Morinville’s two main streets under a new law now before town council.Morinville council passed first reading of proposed changes to the town’s land use bylaw last week. If approved, the changes would make cannabis sales a discretionary use (one requiring both a permit and a development officer’s approval) in the town’s primary, general, and corridor commercial districts, which are for the most part currently found along 100 Avenue between 100 Street and the west side of town and along 100 Street south of the Sobeys.The proposed changes would clarify that greenhouses, convenience stores and specialty stores are not places where you could sell cannabis. They would also forbid cannabis sales if any part of the store’s outer wall was within 100 m of a land use banned by the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Regulation.While the federal and provincial governments control most of the rules around cannabis sales, i…

Inside Canada's New Cannabis & Hemp Regulations

Access to medical cannabis in Canada has been permitted since 1999. The current Canadian framework allowing Canadians access to medical cannabis is found in the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR”), which has been in place as of Aug. 24, 2016, and sets out the current legal structure of Canada’s evolving medical cannabis framework. Because legislators and regulators in Canada are currently changing the country’s medical cannabis laws, it is worth examining where the industry stands today.Adult-Use and Medical Cannabis in CanadaCanada’s proposed adult-use law is designed to “keep cannabis out of the hands of children and youth and keep profits out of the hands of organized crime.” In May 2017, Health Canada committed to streamlining the medical license application process to enable increased production for medical purposes, also ensuring supply meets demand once the adult-use legislation is enacted.
