420 with CNW — Financial Regulator Says Enacting Federal Cannabis Banking Laws Is Urgent

Cannabis is one of the most interesting industries in the country. Seen as one of the nation’s fastest-growing sectors, the cannabis space has been extremely lucrative, generating billions of dollars in sales revenue and creating hundreds of thousands of new job opportunities in just a few short years. However, beneath this veneer of success is a young industry that is buckling under a ton of issues, including the lack of access to financial and credit services.

Despite being allowed in more than two dozen states for medical and recreational use, cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, a situation this has had wide-ranging consequences. One of the most damaging is the fact that marijuana-related businesses (“MRBs”) lack access to financial services because banks and credit institutions shy away from working with them due to fear of federal repercussions.

Since federal authorities still haven’t updated banking laws to accommodate the cannabis space, MRBs cannot access electronic payment systems or secure commercial loans on reasonable terms. This means that they must operate on cash-only payment systems, which increases the risk of robbery and burglary, and they cannot pursue opportunities and grow, thanks to a lack of capital. With the federal government poised to discuss a bill that would federally decriminalize cannabis and provide provisions for legal sales, a financial regulator says that passing cannabis banking laws could not be more urgent.

Guidance from the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) for financial institutions keen on working with licensed MRBs was last issued in 2014, underscoring the need for fresh, standardized banking policies for America’s cannabis industry. Rodney E. Hood, a member of the National Credit Union Administration, has requested the formation of a working group under the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (“FFIEC”) to develop uniform principles and standards for federal financial institution examinations. This would help create a government entity tasked with developing a preliminary regulatory framework that regulators could use to create the eventual system that would oversee cannabis banking.

The cannabis industry’s most pressing financial needs would be gaining access to deposit accounts, commercial loans at competitive interest rates and electronic payment systems to reduce reliance on cash payment systems. Once these obstacles are eliminated, tax-paying cannabis businesses will be able to operate just like any other legal, tax-paying establishments. But the caveat is that these policies have to be standardized and from the federal government; if not, states will pass their own cannabis banking policies, leading to a patchwork of banking regulations across the country that would take a significant amount of time and effort to detangle.

When enabling federal cannabis banking laws are eventually passed, even companies such as The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER), which may sometimes be mistaken for companies dealing in marijuana, will breathe a sigh of relief because more opportunities may open up for them.

420 with CNW — Mainstream Companies Want In on Growing CBD Sector

When the 2018 farm bill legalized the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp and its derivatives, it opened the floodgates on an extremely lucrative market. With less than five years of legal sales under its belt, the hemp-derived cannabidiol (“CBD”) sector has seen hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of product sales. Extracted from hemp, CBD is said to be chock full of potent and versatile medicinal properties and consumers have been purchasing CBD products in droves to reportedly help alleviate issues such as anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia, among others.

According to a Grand View Research report, the CBD market was estimated to be worth $1.64 billion in 2020 and is poised to hit $13.9 billion by 2028. Unsurprisingly, mainstream supplement companies are throwing their hats into the ring to cash in on CBD as it becomes even more lucrative in the next few years. Plenty of companies are already producing CBD-infused foods, beverages, and nutritional supplements, even though the farm bill didn’t explicitly allow the infusion of CBD into edible products, and their bottom lines have piqued the interest of mainstream companies.

Several of them have even begun consulting with former mainstream packaged goods professionals. Aurora Cannabis appointed Nelson Peltz, Proctor & Gamble (“P&G”) Co. director, as a strategic advisor while Ignite International Ltd hired Curtis Hefferenan, a former P&G executive as the global head of sales.

Aside from its medical benefits, consumers are also drawn to CBD because it is not psychotropic, unlike THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol). Although hemp is in the cannabis family, it contains limited amounts of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for marijuana’s intoxicating effects. Consequently, hemp-extracted CBD will not intoxicate you as marijuana would. Furthermore, CBD’s versatility allows it to be infused into a wide variety of products, allowing customers who aren’t a fan of one product type, say tinctures, for example, to choose tablets or even topicals instead. With people becoming more aware of the adverse side effects of pharmaceuticals, alternative health and wellness products, such as those containing CBD, have seen a surge in popularity.

Nevada-based Grove, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRVI) is banking on CBD’s growing popularity as a health and wellness product. After its initial public offering (“IPO”) back in June where the company raised around $11 million in capital, Grove has been working to become the top producer of CBD-infused nutritional supplements. The capital allowed Grove to purchase VitaMedica, an online nutritional supplement seller, to capture a share of the global nutraceuticals market. Only time will tell if Grove’s gamble on CBD will pay out.

Companies that seem to be doing well in the growing CBD space include The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER), which has established its footprint across the United States and is working with major retail chains.

420 with CNW — What Are Cannabidiol Crystals?

Cannabis has become popular in the last few years, as more states across the country legalize it for both recreational and medical use. The plant has more than 100 compounds, with roughly 80 of them being classified as cannabinoids. CBD is one of the two main cannabinoid compounds found in the marijuana plant; the other one is THC, which has psychoactive properties that induce a marijuana high. THC is found in high concentrations in most cannabis strains.

CBD, or cannabidiol, has numerous potential health benefits. In its pure form, CBD is known as CBD isolate or CBD crystals. Below, we explore what CBD crystals are and how they can be used.

What are CBD crystals?

These crystals only contain CBD, which can be extracted in multiple ways from the marijuana plant. These methods include solvent extraction, carbon dioxide extraction and steam distillation. The end product usually contains different compounds from the marijuana plant, including low THC levels. However, this is dependent on the plant source.

At this stage, the extracted CBD is either broad spectrum or full spectrum. It is at this stage that the product is further refined to get CBD isolate.

The refining process used to obtain CBD crystals removes all non-CBD compounds from the product, leaving behind pure CBD in crystal form. These crystals can then be used in other CBD products or ground up and sold.

What is the difference between CBD isolate and other CBD forms?

CBD isolate doesn’t contain THC. This is in addition to having no distinct smell or flavor, because it’s highly refined.

What are its benefits?

While studies on CBD are still in their early stages, researchers believe that cannabidiol influences cannabinoid receptors in the human body. The potential health benefits of this compound include:

  • Pain relief
  • Anti-anxiety effects
  • Anti-seizure effects
  • Nausea relief
  • Vomiting prevention
  • Anti-inflammation effects
  • Immune-boosting properties

A recently published article also found that CBD may impact noncannabinoid receptors such as the 5-HTP serotonin receptor. Serotonin is the chemical produced by the brain and has an effect on sleep and is known to influence an individual’s levels of depression and anxiety. This may explain why some individuals report that CBD has positively affected their symptoms of anxiety and pain.

How are CBD crystals used?

The compound can be used in various ways, including dissolving them into a carrier oil such as olive oil and jojoba oil; using it in DIY skin-care formulations; or adding the crystals to baked foods and goods. CBD isolate needs to be dissolved in butter or oil before it can be added to food.

Given the limitations of CBD crystals, including the absence of an entourage effect triggered by other hemp compounds, leading companies such as The Alkaline Water Company Ltd. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER) prefer to use broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD in their products.

420 with CNW — Growing Numbers of Menopausal Women Resort to Cannabis for Symptomatic Relief

Between the ages of 45 to 55, most women will experience menopause as their estrogen levels steadily decline. One in 100 women will start going through this inevitable stage of life before they hit age 40. Regardless of when menopause starts, the symptoms associated with it are similar across the board. They include irregular periods, chills, hot flashes, night sweats, sleep problems, mood changes and weight gain among others.

Although some medications are proven to help women weather these symptoms, an increasing number of women have been turning to cannabis for this purpose. According to a new study, a “good number” of midlife women have been using the controversial plant, believing that it will help to treat some of the more uncomfortable menopause symptoms. Katherine Babyn, lead researcher and a graduate student at the University of Alberta in Canada, says that plenty of middle-aged women in the menopause transition period of their lives are using cannabis to alleviate symptoms that “tend to overlap with menopause.”

But can cannabis actually help women deal with these symptoms? Dr. Stephanie Faubion, medical director of the North American Menopause Society (“NAMS”), says that unfortunately, there is minimal scientific evidence proving that cannabis can effectively treat menopause-related symptoms. Since marijuana’s effect on women going through menopause hasn’t been formally studied, she says, we do not know the possible benefits and risks. Consequently, women who are using cannabis to alleviate their symptoms are essentially using a drug that has not been studied.

However, the study revealed that plenty of middle-aged women feel like they have benefited from using cannabis. The researchers from the University of Alberta surveyed an estimated 1,500 middle-aged women from the province of Alberta in Canada and found that two-thirds of the respondents had used cannabis for some time, with one-third having done so within the past month. Of the women who were currently using cannabis, 75% said they were using it for medical purposes. This is despite the fact that only 23% actually had medical marijuana prescriptions.

In addition, the study reported that 52% consumed edibles, 47% used cannabis oils, 41% preferred to smoke, and 26% vaped. Up to 74% of the respondents said their symptoms had improved once they started using cannabis, says Nese Yuksel, senior researcher and a professor of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Alberta. Other noteworthy stats include 74% of respondents reported using cannabis to sleep better, 59% used it for anxiety, 58% to boost concentration, 55% to reduce feelings of irritability, and 53% to alleviate muscle and joint aches.

Still, Yuksel says that without any scientific backing, the researchers cannot make an association between cannabis use and reduced menopause symptoms. Although the women may feel as if they’re seeing some benefit from consuming cannabis, she says, the researchers cannot conclusively say that the drug can treat menopause symptoms. Ultimately, they all agreed that we need more research on marijuana’s potential benefits and risks to see whether or not it can be an effective treatment for menopause symptoms.
