Between the ages of 45 to 55, most women will experience menopause as their estrogen levels steadily decline.

420 with CNW — Amazon Voices Support for Federal Cannabis Legalization, Ends Employee Drug Testing

Amazon recently let up on its screening policies for cannabis, with company officials vocalizing their support for the federal legalization of the plant. Beth Galetti, who is the company’s HR boss, stated that the company had restored employment eligibility for applicants and past employees who had been denied employment or fired during cannabis screenings. Galetti added that pre-employment cannabis testing had disproportionately impacted communities of color by impeding job placement and, by extension, the growth of the economy. She noted that this inequitable treatment was unacceptable. Earlier in June, company officials stated that they would no longer screen their workers…

420 with CNW — Is CBD Addictive?

If you still haven't used a cannabidiol (“CBD”) product, I bet you know someone who has. CBD became legal more than two years ago when the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp and its derivatives. It is one of more than 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids that are produced by plants in the cannabis family. But unlike marijuana, hemp has minimal amounts of THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol), the main chemical agent that makes marijuana intoxicating. As such, CBD is nonpsychoactive, meaning it will not intoxicate you. However, the hemp extract has become incredibly popular within quite…

420 with CNW — What Indiana Residents Need to Know Before Buying Cannabis in Illinois

America's state-legal cannabis industry can be quite confusing. Presently, more than 30 states have legalized medical marijuana while 17 states have launched recreational cannabis markets. Each of these states has different cannabis rules, and what's legal in one state could very well get you incarcerated in another state. This patchwork of cannabis regulations has made operating in the marijuana sector especially risky for cannabis tourists who travel to states with legal cannabis markets in order to purchase cannabis. Take Indiana, for example, which has outlawed recreational cannabis use and has no provisions for medical cannabis. It is one of the…

420 with CNW — Poll Reaffirms Campaign Group’s Drive to Reform Medical Cannabis Laws in Michigan

A recently conducted poll has found that most voters in the state of Michigan support medical cannabis being regulated at the same standards as recreational cannabis; the majority is also in favor of new laws.

The poll was conducted by the Michigan Cannabis Manufacturers Association ("MCMA"), which has supported various legislations that would change the state’s medical cannabis laws. This organization is made up of some of the biggest commercial businesses…
