Dynaleo acquired production licence.

A new cannabis-infused gummy producer near Edmonton is set to be the largest in the country.

Dynaleo received its production licence from Health Canada last week. The company has a 26,000-square-foot warehouse in an industrial park just south of the city.

“The next phase of that would be getting our sales licence which we’re currently very excited about,” said Kristy Skwaruk, Dynaleo’s director of people and culture.

Over four years ago, Aaron Evans found out he had a brain tumor, something called AA3 (Anaplastic Astrocytoma). It has been a long journey, but Aaron and his family are now here: his high school graduation.

Eighteen-year-old Aaron recently got his diploma from Kings Mountain High School.

This, after years of surgeries, therapy, and CBD oil, Aaron was one of the first kids in the Carolinas to try CBD, even before it was widely available.

His mother, Jennifer, fought tooth and nail to get her son the treatments, even quietly heading out to Colorado to learn more.

As many businesses struggle through the COVID-19 pandemic, one business owner in Spenard said she is doing better than ever. MoMo’s Bakery makes marijuana edibles that are sold to Alaska cannabis businesses. Owner Maureen Eberhardt said that in recent months, their sales have nearly doubled.

“It’s amazing because here it’s not even the tourist season and we are making record. Every week has been a record,” she said.

Eberhardt said she is grateful that cannabis businesses were deemed “essential” during the pandemic and did not have to shut down. She attributed high sales in part to people who are anxious and looking for a way to relax.

Organigram Holdings Inc. is laying off at least 220 employees — and is warning more bad news could be on the way.

The Moncton-based cannabis company said Friday the cuts will impact a quarter of its staff, but make the workforce leaner, more flexible and better prepared to align its production capacity with market conditions.

“These decisions are never easy to make, but we are committed to ensuring the company is appropriately sized relative to market conditions,” Organigram chief executive Greg Engel said in a statement.

The cuts will leave Organigram with a total workforce of 609 employees including 84 staff members who were previously temporarily laid off, but may be recalled if the company requires them.

Marijuana is still illegal in Tennessee for both medical and adult use. So what’s a state senator to do when they want a little weed?

One answer, apparently: Take a road trip to Illinois.

A photo posted to Twitter over the weekend shows what appears to be a Tennessee state Senate vehicle parked in front of a cannabis retail store in Illinois, which began legal recreational marijuana sales in January. While it’s perfectly legal in Illinois for anyone over 21 to purchase and consume cannabis products in the state, those protections end at the state line.

The photo has sparked frustration and some amusement among legalization supporters in Tennessee, who noted the irony of a lawmaker apparently taking a three-hour drive to a nearby state to obtain marijuana despite the legislature rejecting efforts to enact reform at home.

“If you guys are going to partake, and you can’t even…..

In January, my colleague, Jesse Mondry, wrote about Snyder v. Green Roads of Florida, a case in which the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida stayed a class action lawsuit against a cannabidiol (“CBD”) company until the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) forges a legal path for the manufacture, sale and marketing of these products. The Court placed this case on hold, invoking the “primary jurisdiction doctrine.”

The “primary jurisdiction doctrine” generally applies in cases where a plaintiff’s claim implicates the special competence of an administrative agency. This doctrine is a prudential doctrine that is reserved for a limited set of circumstances that require resolution of an issue of first impression or of a particularly complex issue that Congress has assigned to an administrative agency.

If you regularly read our blog or keep a pulse on the hemp and CBD industry, you know that the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (better known as the “2018 Farm Bill”) expressly recognizes FDA authority to regulate products containing hemp-derived products– including hemp-derived CBD (“Hemp CBD”). Moreover, Congress has repeatedly urged the FDA to complete the rulemaking process to solve the proliferation of CBD products, particularly foods and dietary supplements,

A hit from a bong can be much harder to manage for inexperienced users than a hit from a joint. Get to know the different ways of consuming cannabis and tread carefully if it’s your first time.

Getting high is a simple process yet one that can be affected by many different factors. A lot has been said about cannabis and just how little is known about the plant. One of the most interesting parts of consuming it is how it can vary greatly depending on the user, with some people loving its effects and others claiming that it makes them feel paranoid and anxious.

Cannabis leads to very personal and introspective experiences, affecting users differently, but there are a few outside factors that can influence how your body responds to the drug. Here are 5 factors you can play with in order to have better control of your marijuana high.
