Medical Marijuana for children with cancer broadly supported by Doctors

Submitted by Marijuana News An overwhelming majority of health care professionals who care for children with cancer would be willing to help those children get medical marijuana—though less enthusiastically if they happen to be among the providers who are actually eligible to provide it, found a new study.

Those with the professional ability to provide patients...

5 Cannabis Products Changing the Way We Think About Marijuana

By Care2 There’s a renaissance happening in the world of cannabis products, due in large part to the growing trend of legalization across the country. As new markets come online, consumers are demanding new types of products. In markets which are legalizing, the fastest growth demographics are among women and adults over 50. In response to these growing customer segments, cannabis operators are responding with innovative types of products. Largely gone are the days of plastic baggies filled with non-descript marijuana. Almost all legalized states require lab testing results to be included on product labels and there is a...

Vicente Fox Wants to Make Mexican Marijuana Great Again

The former Mexican president hates Donald Trump — and loves the idea of Mexican farmers reclaiming the North American cannabis market. vicente Fox was the last Mexican president, before the country was overrun by the ghastly drug cartel violence that plagues it to this day. He’s also a highly successful businessman — a Horatio Alger success story who rose from driving a Coca-Cola delivery truck to overseeing all of the soda conglomerate’s Latin America operations; a sort of Mexican Dream. Since Fox told a High Times interviewer in the summer of 2013 that all drugs should be legalized — starting with marijuana, the former...

Marijuana businesses, excluded from finance, face unusual risks

Submitted by Marijuana News MANY marijuana growers in northern California, America’s biggest source of the stuff, had expected this autumn’s harvest to be the largest ever. After all, recreational marijuana becomes legal in the state in January. Instead, wildfires in October—spreading so fast they killed 43 people—burned up half the marijuana growing in the area’s tri-county “Emerald Triangle” alone. Some reckon the fires set a record not just for burnt pot, but also for the value of banknotes turned to ash. Although 29 American states allow sales of marijuana for medical use (or medical and recreational use), federal law...

The legal cannabis market is predicted to triple in size by 2021

Submitted by Marijuana News Entrepreneurs and investors are leaving their high-paying corporate jobs to focus on the fast-growing marijuana industry. Alan Gertner used to be head of Google’s Asia-Pacific sales team, but he had decided to trade his comfortable corporate job for something a lot less conventional. He is currently building a cannabis brand from a small Toronto office. Gertner managed to raise 10 million dollars in capital in just 10 months. Eric Eslao, a former senior production manager at Apple, also jumped on the bandwagon about a year ago to focus on producing cannabis chocolate bars. The legal...

Taming the Black Dog : Using Cannabis to Treat Depression

By Dr Frank – Special to Cannabis Culture CANNABIS CULTURE – Could medical marijuana be one of the answers in treating depression? Before we go into why and how, it is best to understand how depression arises and how it is treated at the moment. Another thing important to remember is that there are two main types of depression: unipolar and bipolar depression/disorder. Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions affecting the people of the US, with around 26% (and perhaps more) of the population suffering from it. Major depression affects around 16.1 million people in...
