420 with CNW —How to Smoke Cannabis Without Inconveniencing Your Neighbors

Cannabis has one of the most recognizable and possibly controversial odors in the world. It’s one of those smells you can identify as soon as you get a whiff. Sometimes described as “skunky,” cannabis smoke is thick, aromatic and tends to linger in the air and on fabrics. If you’re living in an apartment building or in close proximity to other folks, chances are they will get a whiff of your cannabis too.

Plenty of people are now working from home, and it’s likely that trend will continue. Additionally, the tumultuous events of 2020 have led to more people smoking cannabis to reduce stress and anxiety and to promote relaxation. However, while cannabis may be beneficial for you, your neighbors may not be on the same page. If you live in close proximity, you will have to find a way to minimize the smell.

For starters, try different methods of consuming cannabis. While smoking offers the quickest results, plenty of other methods work just fine and may offer even greater effects. Edibles, for instance, have become a staple for people who want to consume cannabis but would prefer not to smoke. While edibles are relatively easy to make with the right equipment, you can also buy them from retail cannabis stores. Although the effects take some time to kick in, they generally last longer than smoking. An edible may take 30 minutes to an hour to kick in, but the effects can last up to six hours.

The nascent cannabis sector has gained notoriety for its innovation. If you don’t want to use edibles to consume cannabis, tools exist that can help disguise cannabis’s potent smell. You could use a premade filter or even build a homemade filter, called a sploof,  to minimize the odor and prevent it from lingering on fabrics. All you need are dryer sheets, a cardboard cylinder from a used toilet paper roll and elastic bands.

Additionally, covering up cannabis’s funky odor with another equally strong smell could do the trick. Natural incense such as sandalwood or palo santo, certain scented candles and potent essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus and citrus will cover up the odor as well as freshen up the room. Note that some scented candles may not work as well as the oils.

Ideally, smoking outside is the best way to avoid inconveniencing your neighbors with cannabis’s musty odor. If you have a balcony, a yard or a terrace, you’re better off smoking your cannabis out there.

Innovations within the cannabis industry are coming in thick and fast. One firm that you should watch is Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD). The company focuses on meeting the industry’s delivery needs, especially at this time when the ongoing pandemic has made it risky to visit brick-and-mortar stores to make cannabis purchases.

420 with CNW – Marijuana Could Alleviate OCD Symptoms, New Research Suggests

As cannabis becomes more mainstream, news about its medical capabilities are almost a daily occurrence. While the hype surrounding the controversial plant has definitely outpaced the science, preliminary findings have been encouraging. Plenty of people have used cannabis to manage everything from chronic pain and inflammation to stress and anxiety. According to new research, cannabis may be able to alleviate symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) as well.

OCD is a mental illness that causes repeated unwanted thoughts or fears that lead to compulsive behaviors. According to the new study published in the “Journal of Affective Disorders,” inhaling cannabis may yield temporary relief from the symptoms of OCD. Researchers with Washington State University worked with 87 individuals self-identifying with OCD. The participating patients “tracked the severity of their intrusions, compulsions, and/or anxiety immediately before and after 1,810 cannabis use sessions spanning a period of 31 months,” reports a study abstract.

According to the researchers, “patients reported a 60% reduction in compulsions, a 49% reduction in anxiety from before to after inhaling cannabis. Higher concentrations of CBD and higher doses predicted larger reductions in compulsions. The number of cannabis use sessions across time predicted changes in intrusions, such that later cannabis use sessions were associated with smaller reductions in intrusions (unwanted thoughts or impulses). Baseline symptom severity and dose remained fairly constant over time.

“Using a large dataset of medical cannabis users self-medicating for symptoms of OCD, we found that for the vast majority of cannabis use sessions, individuals reported reductions in intrusions, compulsions or anxiety,” researchers wrote. “Results indicated that after inhaling cannabis, ratings of intrusions were reduced by 49%, compulsions by 60%, and anxiety by 52%.”  The authors surmised that although inhaling cannabis may, in fact, reduce the symptoms of OCD, “results indicate that cannabis may have short-term, but not long-term beneficial effects on symptoms of OCD.”

The authors of the study say they sought to discover three things in their research: whether symptoms of OCD significantly reduced after inhaling cannabis; predictors (gender, dose, cannabis constituents, time) of these symptom changes; and “potential long-term consequences of using cannabis to self-medicate for OCD symptoms, including changes in dose and baseline symptom severity over time.”

However, the researchers concede that their study had its weaknesses, including the fact that the 87 participants were “self-selected, self-identified as having OCD, and there was no placebo control group. The study has still been met with support from cannabis advocates as it adds to the growing body of cannabis research. Few studies have assessed the potential efficacy of cannabis for the mitigation of symptoms of OCD,” says NORML’s Deputy Director Paul Armentano.

“As such, these findings, though somewhat limited by the study’s design, indicate that cannabis, and in particular, varieties high in CBD, holds promise as a therapeutic option for OCD patients and should be examined in a more rigorously designed controlled setting.”

The blossoming cannabis sector has resulted in the creation of numerous companies to address the needs of consumers and patients. One interesting company to watch in this space is Pac Root Cannabis Corp. (CSE: PACR), which focuses on using high-end genetics to make premium products in the marijuana and hemp space.

420 with CNW – Top Cuomo Advisor Says New York Will Legalize Cannabis by April 2021

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top cannabis advisor says that marijuana legalization legislation will be introduced again through the state budget in January 2021. The objective of this will be to enact reform by April 2021. The advisor also previewed the state regulations for CBD products derived from hemp, including food items and infused drinks.

In an interview with David Culver from Canopy Growth Corp, Axel Bernabe, assistant counsel to the governor, discussed how the effort to legalize cannabis in surrounding states only emphasized the need for reform in New York. He stated that the legislation the governor plans to introduce, which prioritizes economic development and social equity, would serve as a model for other states.

Bernabe acknowledged that New Jersey may legalize cannabis before the state of New York as New Jersey voters are scheduled to approve a legalization referendum next month. He also noted that New York officials were monitoring New Jersey closely. In addition, Bernabe states that state officials were working on reintroducing the measure in the January budget and planned to  get it done by April 1 next year.

Bernabe’s statements come after a top senator from New Jersey indicated that that state’s lawmakers could pass the enacting measure as soon as the first week of November. While Gov. Cuomo has included legalization in his budget proposal for the past two years, negotiations have routinely been held up in legislature, with issues such as how marijuana tax revenue is to be allocated preventing the closing of the deal.

Bernabe admits to being excited about the economic development and public safety components of the administration’s upcoming legalization proposal. He spoke about ensuring social equity for communities that have been historically targeted by the war on drugs and added that some changes would be made from this year’s version, taking into consideration other states’ experiences.

In the interview, Bernabe also discussed the pending regulations for cannabinoids derived from hemp. He stated that the administration was “putting the final tweaks” on policies for CBD products and that the policies would take effect at the start of 2021. He also said that the administration would likely be establishing regulations for cannabinoid-infused food items and drinks.

He remarked that the administration was looking into every product class and trying to find a balance between consumer protection and allowing people to continue to obtain, to a great extent, what they’re already using for wellness and health.

Additionally, the New York Agriculture Department will allow hemp businesses to continue their operations under the existing program until September 30, 2021, since the congressional continuing rider signed by President Donald Trump extends the hemp farm bill pilot program (2014) until September 2021.

Many companies are poised for explosive growth once the CBD sector is properly regulated at both the state and federal levels. One of the entities to watch in this sector is Pure Extract Technologies Corp., a Canadian-based, plant-extraction company that has recently taken on a new functional mushrooms vertical.

420 with CNW – Missouri Opens State’s First Medical Cannabis Dispensaries and Launches Sales

Last Saturday, medical cannabis dispensaries in Missouri made their first legal sales to qualified patients and caregivers. This comes less than two years after voters from Missouri approved a ballot measure to legalize medical cannabis.

N’Bliss Cannabis put up shop and opened doors in Manchester and Ellisville, two different St. Louis County locations. The director of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Dr. Randall Williams, stated in a press release that Missouri patients had always been the state’s north star as they worked towards implementing the state’s medical cannabis program. He added that they greatly appreciated how hard everyone had exerted themselves into ensuring that patients would be able to access a well-regulated and safe program.

Various officials have highlighted the speed at which they got the voter-approved marijuana program off the ground, stating that it was one of the fastest implementations of a medical cannabis program in the United States.

The director of the Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation, Lyndall Fraker, stated in a press release that a huge amount of work had been put in by the team and licensed facilities to get to the point they were at and that they heard from more facilities which were almost ready or ready for their commencement inspections. He added that they looked forward to seeing these facilities open their doors to serve both caregivers and patients.

The Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association was the first to announce on Friday that the launch of sales will happen the next day while the Springfield News-Leader was the first to report the good news of this announcement.

The state of Missouri has until now granted licenses to 192 dispensaries and expects that most if not all will have opened by the end of the year. The state also posted an interactive map that can be used to track the status of approved cannabis businesses.

For many months now, regulators have been immersed in appeals and lawsuits challenging the state’s licensing decisions, with revenues that should have been directed into veteran services being diverted and used to cover legal costs.

Furthermore, Missouri is not the only state that launched medical marijuana sales this past weekend. The state of Virginia also had its first medical cannabis dispensary grand opening on Saturday as well. Over in Maine, recreational sales of cannabis were introduced last week, roughly four years after voters had approved a legalization ballot measure.

Many companies are bringing a new twist to the cannabis space, and one interesting one to watch is The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER). They specialize in making perfectly balanced alkaline (pH of 8.8) water rich in trace minerals.

420 with CNW – COVID19 a Boost as Recreational Cannabis Turns Two in Canada

Two years after recreational cannabis sales became legal in Canada, the industry is flourishing. Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the Great White North’s legal marijuana industry is celebrating increased sales, more brick and mortar stores, and competitive pricing. Although the industry has struggled to compete with the black market ever since Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, it has recently been gaining ground.

According to David Soberman, a professor of marketing at the University of Toronto, this can be attributed to the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s been a boon for the legal industry,” he says. July, for instance, saw a 15% increase in sales from June, the biggest monthly jump in sales since Canada legalized cannabis. Terry Kulaga, the founder of Weed Me, a legal cannabis production company based in Pickering, Ontario says self-isolation and working from home policies have greatly benefited the industry.

“Because people are spending more time at home, they’re perhaps more comfortable with consuming cannabis. As people work from home, they probably have more time to actually consume cannabis,” he says. Statistics Canada reports that Canadians have been buying more marijuana, it’s just that they are now sourcing it legally. Compared to April-June 2019, people spent 74% more money on licensed cannabis during the same period in 2020.

“There’s been a downturn in the black market because people are more reluctant to go out and meet their regular cannabis dealer in the way that they were prior to the pandemic,” Doberman explains. Additionally, the country has also seen an increase in the number of brick-and-mortar retail shops. According to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, there are more than 180 licensed cannabis stores in the province of Ontario.

“More and more people are having a shop open up locally where they can access a safe and reliable product,” says Weed Me founder Terry Kulaga. “Moreover, I’ll mention that inside the stores themselves, the people selling the products are becoming more knowledgeable about the product and the suppliers,” he surmises.

With the legal cannabis market offering cheaper prices, consumers have even more incentive to ditch the black market and start buying legal marijuana. Back in the industry’s inception, the average price per gram for legal cannabis was $10.25 while on the black market it was around 4 dollars less. Now the average price per gram for legal dried flower is around $7.05.

“Legal cannabis is infinitely better than illegal cannabis,” says Steven Frys, president and co-founder of Sessions Cannabis, a chain of five stores across Ontario. “It’s a healthy and safe product that’s approved by Health Canada and it’s highly regulated. Tax money is going back to the community when we’re purchasing through the legal channels.”

There are many cannabis sector players within the Canadian and U.S. marijuana industry. One of the interesting firms to watch is Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD).

420 with CNW – Can CBD And Nicotine Mix?

In the past, cannabis has gotten more than its fair share of bad press. However, research done has made us aware of the fact that cannabis compounds, like THC and CBD can be used to help manage addictive behaviors. Cannabis is now considered to be an exit drug as opposed to its former “gateway drug” title.

Observational studies have also discovered that cannabis can be used as a substitute for nicotine and alcohol as it is considered safe. This is unlike tobacco, which kills about 6 million people every year and leads to massive economic losses. The World Health Organization released a report indicating that tobacco smoke contains 69 substances which are known causes of cancer.

The Global Tobacco Surveillance System gathers data from 22 nations which make up about 60% of the global population. The latest report shows there are 1.3bn nicotine users in the above 22 countries. Of the 1.3bn, 205 million have tried to quit smoking in the last year.

Of those who tried to quit, 4-7% can manage to kick the habit without any help or medication while 25% of the nicotine users manage their withdrawal symptoms using medication.

So, can we use CBD to help treat nicotine addiction?

While the exact effect of CBD on nicotine addiction is yet to be fully understood, one pilot study noted a decrease in cigarette consumption with the administration of CBD.

The clinical study studied the efficacy of CBD to help treat tobacco addiction. The study involved 24 individuals who consumed more than 10 cigarettes in a day. Half of the group got an inhaler containing a placebo and the remaining 12 got an inhaler with CBD. The study lasted a week with researchers recording the individual’s anxiety levels and nicotine cravings daily.

Three weeks after the treatment, an interview was conducted that discovered that the consumption of tobacco in the group that received CBD inhalers had reduced by 40%. While the subjects had reverted back to their initial conditions by the 21st day, the study shows promise and indicates the need for more studies to be done on this, on a much larger scale.

When it comes to CBD and other stimulants, we recommend not mixing CBD with any stimulants. This is because interactions between the drugs may lead to weight loss, reduced appetite or insomnia. Sleeping disturbances may in turn lead to increased anxiety and mood swings. Therefore, we suggest either using CBD oil alone but not with other stimulants unless studies have shown otherwise.

For those struggling with nicotine addiction, CBD can not only ease withdrawal symptoms such as weight gain, anxiety and sleep disturbances but it can also reduce cravings for cigarettes. While no study has explicitly recommended CBD as a nicotine substitute, you can help manage your addiction yourself using the information above and carry on with a life free from nicotine.

Many firms are involved in extracting different compounds from the cannabis plant. Pure Extract Technologies Inc. is one to watch. This company focuses on extracting plant compounds and it has made a name for itself serving licensed cannabis producers in Canada.
