420 with CNW — Israeli-Made Medical Marijuana Inhaler Gets Nod from Canadian Authorities

Although several studies have proven that cannabis can treat conditions such as chronic pain, medical cannabis patients do not have a safe way to consume the plant. Save for taking the cannabis orally, most means of consumption such as smoking the flower and vaping come with a degree of risk. And since a large portion of medical cannabis patients are either older or they have compromised immune systems, any risk could be fatal. Syqe Medical, a pharma-tech company based in Israel, has developed a proprietary medical cannabis delivery device that offers medical marijuana patients a much safer, more precise means…

420 with CNW — Texas House Approves Bill to Reduce Criminal Penalties for Cannabis Possession

Last week, the House in the state of Texas approved a measure that would decrease the criminal penalty for the possession of small amounts of cannabis, in addition to affording residents in the state who have been charged with cannabis possession the chance to expunge it from their records. House Bill 441 applies to the possession of an ounce or less of cannabis. Presently though, possessing up to two ounces of cannabis, which is equivalent to about 57 grams, is classified as a class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by a $2,000 fine and up to six months in jail.…

420 with CNW — The Arguments For, Against Capping THC Concentration

Anyone who consumed cannabis in the ‘80s and ‘90s knows that these days, the compound is much stronger. The controversial plant is now allowed in several countries around the world with more than 40 states in America legalizing it in different ways. As the relatively young state-legal cannabis industry grows and matures, some have raised questions about marijuana's increasing potency and the effects it may have on developing brains. THC is the main cannabinoid responsible for cannabis's intoxicating effects, and as cannabis companies develop more potent products, lawmakers across the country have started talking about potency caps.

420 with CNW — Researchers Debunk Lazy Stoner Mentality Surrounding Marijuana Use

A common notion that surrounds marijuana is that cannabis users are indolent individuals who are basically couch potatoes, vegging out while eating snacks in bed. While the origins of this stereotype aren’t clear, we can at least agree that marijuana helps individuals sleep, which isn’t a bad thing now, is it? Especially if you consider that one-third of all people in America have sleep problems. Now a recent study has found that it’s not only inaccurate to refer to stoners as lazy, but it’s also not true. As a matter of fact, the study found that frequent and light users…

420 with CNW — Could Cannabis Legalization in New Mexico Hurt Nearby Colorado?

As more states legalize cannabis, the pioneers who launched the first state-legal cannabis sectors in the country may soon see their profits drop due to increasing competition. Colorado, for instance, has had a fantastic run so far. Its recreational cannabis industry has raked in nearly $10 billion dollars and filled the state's coffers with billions of dollars in cannabis taxes. However, now that next door neighbor New Mexico has legalized recreational marijuana, some cannabis operators in Colorado fear their profit margins will start thinning once New Mexico launches its cannabis industry in 2022. Colorado launched recreational cannabis sales in 2014,…

420 with CNW — How the Cannabis Industry Can Be More Sustainable

A casual look at the cannabis industry will reveal that the sector uses a lot of energy in grow rooms — so is the industry doomed to continue operating in ways that aren’t sustainable? Not at all — several ways are available to “green up” this sector as discussed below. Switch to sustainable agricultural practices One sustainable practice is installing a recirculation system for the water used in grow rooms.

420 with CNW — Cannabis Legalization Bill Advanced to Montana Governor’s Desk

Montana’s state legislature has approved a legislation that establishes the recreational cannabis program voters had approved during the November 2020 elections and advanced it to the governor’s desk.

420 with CNW — Important Lessons to Learn from 4/20 Marijuana Sales Data

Cannabis lovers in the United States celebrated 4/20, a stoner’s holiday held on April 20 every year, almost a week ago. According to Headset, a marijuana data analytics firm based in Seattle, April 20 is the single largest sales day in the country each year since the legal sale of recreational cannabis began.
