People of colour must be represented across the cannabis industry

There is a renewed reckoning about the exclusion of women and people of colour from power and resources worldwide.

Treat the Aches & Pains of Aging with Cannabis Topicals

Almost half of adults aged 65 or older have arthritis. The Center for Disease Control says arthritis and other rheumatic conditions represent a leading cause of disability among U.S. adults — and the leading cause for the past 15 years.

And since the risk of arthritis increases with age, there will only be more patients searching for effective alternative treatments for pain as the senior population grows.

Among them is Jane, a 67-year-old woman who suffers from osteoarthritis and has found relief by using cannabis.

Alberta legal cannabis sales to exceed half billion dollars this year: analyst

Sales of legal cannabis in Alberta should climb to $540 million this year on monthly revenues that have more than doubled since 2019, says an industry analyst.

But with Alberta reaching a retail saturation point with nearly half the pot stores in the country, those numbers aren’t expected to increase much more in the foreseeable future, said Het Shah, Calgary-based managing director of Cannabis Benchmarks.

And they’re not expected to significantly reduce the provincial government’s forecast of continued red ink on the cannabis side of its taxation ledger.

5 Things To Keep In Mind When Using Cannabis For Sleep

Cannabis and sleep go great together. Here’s a few things you should keep in mind when using the herb to help you rest.

Marijuana can be a great tool for sleep. Just talk to any friend who smokes weed at night or who found themselves nodding off in the middle of a party because the herb they smoked was a little too relaxing.

Anecdotal evidence from people with varying degrees of insomnia shows how effective marijuana can be for sleep by helping users feel relaxed and allowing them to achieve hours of uninterrupted rest.

Despite marijuana’s powerful sleep inducing effects, it’s important to understand that the relationship between cannabis and sleep isn’t as clear cut as so many believe it is.

Why Cannabis Juicing Can Be Good For You

Some people report a dramatic change after just one serving of raw cannabis juice, while others may take four to eight weeks to see full results. 

Cold-press juices enable one to partake of the nutrients present in raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs that get lost once the products are heated or cooked. In a similar vein, consuming raw cannabis leaves and buds as a dietary aid increases the anti-oxidant and neuroprotective properties of this plant.

Raw cannabis can contain 500mg to 1,000 mg of non-psychoactive THCA, CBDA, and CBGA. In comparison, the same amount of cannabis once heated contains 10 mg THC. Also, as the THC in cannabis only becomes psychoactive when heated, consuming raw cannabis allows one to get the benefits of the plant in a non-intoxicating way.
