420 with CNW — Virginia Lawmakers Pass Cannabis Sales Bill, Send to Governor

Virginia lawmakers have recently given their final nod to legislation aiming to legalize the retail sale of cannabis, slated to commence from May 1, 2025.

Could Marijuana Hold Key to Addressing Pain Related to Aging?

Marijuana contains more than 100 compounds, the major ones being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Of the two primary compounds, THC induces a high when consumed while CBD does not.

Oxidative stress refers to a disruption in the balance between antioxidant defenses and the production of free radicals in the body.

420 with CNW — Maryland Legislators Consider Bills Against Workplace Discrimination for Cannabis Users

Legislative committees in Maryland’s state House of Delegates and Senate convened last week to deliberate on proposed measures aimed at shielding workers from repercussions due to off-duty marijuana use.

Introduced as SB 513 by Senator Alonzo Washington and as HB 525 by Delegate Jheanelle Wilkins, both bills share near-identical language. The Finance Committee in the Senate heard testimonies on SB 513 on Thursday, while the House’s Economic Matters Committee followed suit with HB 525 a…

Study Shows CBD-Dominant Marijuana Products Can Ease Anxiety While Negating Risks of THC

A new study has found that marijuana products dominant in CBD can ease anxiety more effectively in comparison to products that contain THC. THC and CBD are the two primary compounds found in marijuana. However, unlike CBD, THC induces a high when ingested. The study was carried out by researchers at CU Boulder. It is the first randomized trial to investigate how commercially available marijuana influences symptoms of anxiety. Currently, one in five adults in America have an anxiety disorder, which makes it a common mental health condition in the United States. The researchers’ primary objective was to better understand…
