'Extensive lobbying' underway to ease restrictions around hemp-derived CBD in Canada

Financial Post

Canadian hemp and cannabis producers are pushing for changes to the rules governing the use of hemp-derived cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound found in both plants that has multi-billion-dollar potential as an ingredient in a host of wellness products. "There's some pretty extensive lobbying going on right now - by licensed cannabis producers, and by the hemp guys.

While this rings true...for now. I do believe we will begin to see a major shift as more retail locations become available, and as well when more growers and suppliers are able to enter the market.

The cannabis black market will control 71 per cent of sales in Canada this year, Scotiabank says

National Post

The logistical challenges and related supply issued of producing legal cannabis in Canada are many-and as a result, the Canadian cannabis black market is booming. A new research note from Scotiabank analysts estimate that the black market will control 71 percent of cannabis sales in Canada in 2019.

    Absolutely! Once we have a full-fledged legal retail market in place, this is going to change completely. I'm sure the legalization of edibles will help too!

Janelle Simone Sleep 5 days ago / Scarborough, Ontario

Today I got diagnosed with obtrusive sleep apnea. In some areas of the world sleep apnea is a condition that qualifies for a medical cannabis prescription, though there's much divide over whether it is an effective treatment. Curious if anybody has used cannabis for sleep apnea?

Women In Cannabis Wednesday: Edition 4 - Connor Christine

This week we caught up with JADEO Co-Founder Connor Christine to learn more about her journey to starting up one of the leading online platforms for cannabis networking and education in the new legalized world. She shared with us how the idea for JADEO came to be and how she incorporated cannabis into her self-care.

Tell us how you first became interested in the cannabis industry?

It’s actually kinda funny how I got involved in the cannabis industry. I never thought that I’d end up here. I sort of began as just a recreational user and didn’t even know the difference between indica and sativa. Then, when Michael ( Co-Founder and CEO of JADEO) started acting as a consultant in the industry, my questions began to build up. It was through those questions that we started to notice there were a lot of gaps in the industry; primarily around education, networking, and marketing. Our wheels started turning, and we started thinking of different ways we could help improve these gaps. The more we talked, the more we discovered what was missing in the cannabis space, leading us to create a unique opportunity for what is now JADEO.

What gave you the push to start JADEO?

Well, at that time we attended a Lift&Co conference in Toronto. We noticed how all these brands, small and large - were limited to getting the word out about their brand at trade shows. As you know, conferences are very expensive. When we're thinking particularly about the smaller brands, we wondered how on earth could they afford a conference? These smaller brands are using up their annual budget at one conference! We wanted to create an equal opportunity to service small and large brands by essentially creating an online platform that can act as a conference 365 days a year.

How do you like running a startup?

Since working within the cannabis industry, I have a newfound love for Mondays. I am not a Monday person or a morning person, but since working in this industry I love it all. I love my job, I love my team, and I love the community that we’ve created. It’s an online space where people can come to feel safe asking questions, can trust the information they’re getting and feel comfortable sharing their knowledge. We cover all topics around education, wellness, the law, and much more all while giving business a trustworthy space to advertise - which is rare at this time in this industry.

How do you feel being showcased for our Women in Cannabis Wednesday?

As a young entrepreneur, I’m all about empowering women. Over the years that we’ve been developing JADEO, there have been so many wonderful women around me, and when I see how hard they’re working it’s so inspiring. When my team recently brought forth the theme for #wcw as a feature on our platform, I was thrilled. I felt it was a great way to showcase all these powerful, hard working women. In fact, one of my favourite quotes that fits well into this industry is: “let’s root for each other and watch each other grow.” That’s how I feel about being a woman in cannabis.

How do you maintain self-care working in an uncertain startup environment?

So far this journey has been amazing! We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs as young entrepreneurs, but I think it’s super important to always see the good in a situation. I always try to think “what is this teaching me?” instead of “why is this happening to me?” Mindset is so important, and when you have a team, it’s an important part of leading a team.

To help with that mindset, I like to fill up my pax with Blue Dream. I also always love to take a bath, and it’s my favourite way to end my workday. Life is busy, so it’s hard to find a routine - but that’s why PAX and a bath is a daily self-care ritual I honor.

Medical Cannabis: The True Difference Of Being Under A Doctor’s Care Versus Self-Medicating.

Thanks to the wide coverage of cannabis in Canadian news media, more citizens are waking up to the availability of the cannabis plant for their own therapeutic uses. If, like many of us, you feel overwhelmed with the new array of cannabis brands, strains and applications in today’s marketplace you aren’t alone.

With the rec. market opening up and the black market still at large, we are posed with an interesting question around having medical marijuana prescribed over self-administering the plant for therapeutic purpose. In Canada, like 29 other countries worldwide, it’s an option to use cannabis for chronic pain amongst a host of issues. With that in mind, we wanted to consider the advantages of getting a personalized authorization for medical cannabis.

When it comes to making a selection about cannabis, it’s almost as if the possibilities are endless. Even cannabis connoisseurs would tell you there is always more to learn and discover. To begin with, each strain has its own unique ratio of cannabinoids that can have dramatically different effects. Beyond the THC/CBD ratio and genetics of each strain, there are considerations of dosing and consumption methods that will impact how a patient experiences the medicine and its efficacy.

Because there is a dizzying array of options in our new legal marketplace, if you are selecting a strain of cannabis, it may not be clear which one to choose. Taking chances or asking a friend what they like is not best practice when it comes to using cannabis for medical purposes. It is quite difficult for someone who has never used cannabis, or even for a recreational user to ascertain the specific health benefits of cannabis, and how to exploit them effectively. Having a health care provider prescribe medical cannabis doesn’t just give a patient accountability, but it also provides them with recommendations based on evidence.

Having a medical professional understand the other drugs a patient might be taking is relevant to establishing a new treatment protocol. It also ensures patients receive a treatment plan that works with their lifestyle, and they receive the right balance of CBD and THC for their personal needs. In an article with the Globe and Mail, Dr. Peter Blecher, who is the chief medical officer of Starseed Medicinal, describes his experience: “The medical cannabis I prescribe is typically high CBD oil. The two most prevalent active components in cannabis are cannabidiol (CBD) and THC, which is the psychoactive component that is associated with ‘getting high. CBD is not intoxicating...’”

Because of its vast range of benefits, medical cannabis can potentially replace multiple pharmaceutical drugs for a single patient. While not all family doctors are confident with prescribing cannabis, there are cannabis clinics in Canada who specialize in assessing patient’s needs and assisting them with dosing and treatment plans. A medical professional experienced in prescribing medical cannabis can safely and accurately manage your dose and consumption leading to a more effective treatment plan. North Star Wellness has a range of clinics offering in person and telemedicine appointments, with locations in St.Catharines, Windsor, Hamilton, and Kitchener. Their clinics offer tailored cannabinoid therapy treatment plans in conjunction with other healthcare services, so they can help design an approach that works best for you.

Stay Informed. Stay Healthy.

    I had such a wonderful experience at the North Star Wellness Clinic in Hamilton! It makes me feel comfortable knowing that the nurses there know what they’re talking about, and are passionate about helping you. I’d much rather speak to one of them, than my family doctor who doesn’t really invest himself in learning about the benefits of medical cannabis. We’re lucky to have clinics like this around, so we can get the questions we have answered- and trust the information we are receiving!
