For many states with legal cannabis markets, one of the objectives of legalizing the controversial drug was to cripple the illicit cannabis market by taking away its clientele. While that sounds like a great idea in theory, most of these states have been unable to do any real damage to the illegal market so far. Not only do black market sellers tend to price their cannabis cheaply, but they don't have to jump through a wide variety of hoops to start selling, and this ensures the black market has an unending supply of affordable cannabis. California, for instance, legalized marijuana…

420 with CNW — Marijuana Could Fuel Novel Food Culture

For decades, plants within the Cannabis Sativa family have been associated with marijuana and its infamous “high.” Even as the state-legal cannabis industry becomes larger and more lucrative, THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound responsible for marijuana's intoxication, has taken center stage.

You’ve probably heard of people referring to marijuana as either indica or sativa, but do you know what the terms actually mean? Contrary to popular opinion, sativa and indica are botany terms that describe the observable physical traits of a marijuana plant and not the effects they induce. If you were to trace any strain of marijuana back to its original genetics, you’d end up with landrace strains, which are basically marijuana strains whose genetics stabilized and evolved in their natural environments in different parts of the world. Examples of such strains include Thailand’s Chocolate Thai, Mexico’s Acapulco Gold and…

Fearing reprisals from the federal government, banking institutions refuse to work with state-legal cannabis businesses, forcing them to operate on a cash-only basis, among other things. The Secure and Fair…
