If Cannabis Is A Plant, How Can It Be Harmful?
If Cannabis is a natural plant, how can it possibly be dangerous? We really enjoy the way Dr. Mark Ware and Dr. Amy Porath break it down for us in this video.

I updated my article to reflect the fact that I finally got my OCS order after an excruciating 28 day wait, and my thoughts on the process. https://jadeo.co/SIG/CannaBasics/its-legalization-day-my-ocs-experience

The Challenge of Accurate Dosing in THC and CBD
A great SPONSORED post by XANTHIC BIOPHARMA we found on http://www.visualcapitalist.co. We love the simplicity of this. The industry as a whole has a great deal of education to provide on why dosages are so individual, and that what works for one, may not work for another. (tm)
What The Midterm Election Results Means For Cannabis
It’s been one week since the U.S. midterm elections. While the media has been busy highlighting the impact poll results will have on various states and the Democrats taking back the house, the one win that no one seems to be talking about is for cannabis legalization.
Mid-Term Cannabis Wins
While recreational legalization was on the ballot in North Dakota and Michigan, voters in Missouri and Utah were able to vote strictly on medical marijuana. A recreational ballot measure in North Dakota was the only marijuana initiative that voters rejected. The other successful votes opened up new markets in Michigan, Missouri and Utah that eventually could generate $2 billion in medical and recreational sales.
These numbers now mean that 33 states have made medical marijuana legal, with 10 left-wing states legalizing recreational cannabis. With numbers this high, it begs the question of why only western states like Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California come to mind when we think of legal cannabis? The answer hits home. Much like our regulatory setbacks in Ontario, states like Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine may have legalized marijuana, but recreational sales haven’t properly begun on the East Coast due to delays in implementing retail regulations.
Investment Opportunities in Cannabis
While investment opportunities look most lucrative for the states which have fully legalized, medical states have massive opportunity that begs a second glance. Though Michigan may have stolen the headlines as the 10th state to open up legal cannabis sales, when we look at the impact of medical marijuana becoming legal in Missouri, we see that it calls for “no fewer than 60 cultivation, 80 processing and 192 dispensary licenses based on Missouri’s population.”
We are seeing the shift happen steadily, with laws changing state by state. In January, Vermont became the first state to legalize marijuana through its Legislature rather than a ballot initiative when the governor signed the bill into law. Times are a changing, but a slow and steady shift in cannabis politics happen state by state begs many questions.
What Happens When Side-by-Side States Have Varying Policies?
As you might guess, when neighbouring states have contrasting laws around cannabis, the opportunity for economic growth is being lost to states who have legalized the sale of the plant. For example, the opening of legal markets in states surrounding New York is expected to put pressure on NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo, particularly once residents of New York City can hop a quick train to New Jersey to buy weed, taking their sales tax revenue across the Hudson River.
The big question is what Trump plans to do with federal regulation. Democrats as the new majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives, improves the odds that lawmakers will pass federal marijuana reforms that benefits cannabis business.. While the shift in the house and more ballot initiatives make it more promising that a Federal deal will be possible, it is more likely that Trump will first move to legalize medical cannabis. Dana Rohrabacher, a conservative Republican from California who has said he uses medical marijuana to treat arthritis pain, told Fox Business recently that “President Donald Trump was committed to legalizing medical marijuana after the midterm election, while leaving the question of recreational pot to the states.”
The opportunity for economic growth is no oversight in how these bills will be determined. Being the world’s largest economy, the potential for a U.S. marijuana market is reported to reach “$75 billion by 2030, according to an estimate from Cowen & Co.” This shift in American politics is bringing about huge opportunity in the cannabis industry, with every new legal state being another step closer to the biggest win of all.

And on the 28th day, the completion of the 4th week. My Ontario Cannabis Store FINALLY shipped. The experience was a disappointment, to say the least. Now to wait on my shipping cost refund.
Over the weekend my sister said to me, “I haven’t ordered from the OCS because I have no idea what I’m looking at, where to start, or if it will even work for me. I don’t want to waste my money accidentally buying something that I didn’t even know I was getting.”
I find this a little troubling. It’s glass, not grass... https://www.cbc.ca/radio/day6/episode-415-midterms-and-the-impeach-o-meter-pot-marketing-laws-how-not-to-propose-vimy-oaks-and-more-1.4896932/canada-s-cannabis-law-is-making-things-weird-for-people-who-sell-pot-paraphernalia-1.4896941
