Do you think Cannabis 2.0 will provide a big boost to the Canadian marijuana industry in 1q20?
(Beverage, Canada, Cannabis, Products, Retail Stores) From what I've seen: • Alberta won’t have products on store shelves until mid-January. The province, which has the most retail outlets in Canada, currently has contracts with 42 cannabis producers and about half of them anticipate offering the new products. • Quebec will begin selling the new products on New Year’s Day if it has the product. Even then, it will likely be a limited offering of some teas and perhaps one beverage. • In Ontario, the new products will begin to appear in retail stores in early January. • Nova Scotia expects to have a small offering of new products in stores on Dec. 23, while online ordering won’t be available until Jan. 6 • New Brunswick will start receiving limited shipments of new products over the next few days, with more details coming later in the week submitted by /u/leclair523 [link] [comments]…

What Is Weed Wine and How Do You Make the Infused Alcohol?
(Alcohol, Beverage, California, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Edibles, Food, Greece, Grower, Investing, Legalization, Products, Record Keeping, Regulations, Strains, United States, Wine, THC, Dispensaries) In this era of cannabis prosperity, cannabis-infused edibles and beverages are no longer relegated to space cakes, magic brownies, and murky tinctures. Rather, cannabis consumers today are blessed with an epicurean food-and-weed scene worthy of Zagat, as chefs across the country regularly whip up inspired dishes full of THC, CBD, and terpenes. But what if we told you one of the weed world’s favorite new infused offerings wasn’t really new at all, and has actually been around since the second century A.D.? And what if we told you that you could make your own batch at home? Well get familiar with weed wine, an infused beverage that many are experimenting with across the cannabis landscape. What Is Weed Wine? When we think of wine, we’re almost always talking about boozy, fermented grape juice. Sure, you can make wine out of blueberries, watermelons, and other fruit, but when was the last time you actually bought some sweet berry vino ? As such, most weed wines are made from grapes,...…

Cannabis to Calm Nerves
(Beverage, Cannabis, Edibles, Food, Italy, Products, Satori Resources, Inc., STRRF, Supplements, THC) There’s no denying that these are extremely stressful times. Cannabis, because of its ability to help us achieve balance in restoring homeostasis throughout our bodies, can be a great tool to calm any nerves we’re all collectively experiencing right now.

Canopy beverage review - Tweed Houndstooth & Soda
(Alcohol, Beverage, Cannabis, Drinks, Soda, Tweed Marijuana Inc, TWMJF, THC) Hello all, I was able to get my hands on some of Canopy's new beverages and I will do my best to share some info for those of you who are curious about these drinks. I am in Quebec. The drinks were priced at $4.70 each. Each can is 355ml and contains 2mg of THC. It also indicates that there is the equivalent of 5.1g of dried cannabis per can. Picture of the beverages At first glance, the cans are visually pleasing. The Tweed brand and beverage name are of light green color which makes them pop out on the black background of the can. The simplistic design works well and they look pretty sleek in my opinion. The nutritional information indicates that these drinks contain 3 calories and 0 grams of sugar which is fantastic. This will appeal to customers who are trying to lose weight or are watching their weight as well as people looking to reduce their sugar intake.

US Hemp Roundtable Analyses FDA’s CBD Report To Congress
(Beverage, CBD, Cosmetics, Food, Hemp, Hemp Farming, Marketing, Products, Regulations, Supplements, Extracts) FDA Issues CBD Report to Congress More than a week after a Congressional deadline, FDA finally released its long-awaited report to Congress on the potential regulatory pathways for the sale of hemp-derived CBD products. Click here for the full report. There’s not much cause for celebration — FDA continues to kick the can down the road, claiming that more study is needed before it takes action. The agency’s delay results in the worst of both worlds — U.S. hemp farmers are denied profitable markets for their crops, while unregulated products continue to proliferate, with no safeguards for public health and safety. The report, however, does provide valuable insight into the Agency’s thinking and next steps including the following: FDA is actively evaluating a potential rulemaking to allow CBD in dietary supplements. In the meantime, the agency is considering the issuance of a risk-based enforcement discretion policy to provide more transparency regarding its enforcement priorities. With...…

Is the window for legitimacy in the cannabis sector now wide open? It’s All About Supply & Demand
(ACB, Beverage, Cannabis, Edibles, Investors, Maine, Products, Topicals, United States) With the world now coming to a screeching halt with the COVID-19 pandemic, the global cannabis market is perhaps more precariously positioned than ever before. As the S&P hits new lows and the Federal Reserve lowering interest rates, many companies, not just those in the cannabis industry, are feeling the pinch. With billions wiped off markets in a matter of moments, industry mainstay Tilray has been forced to raise $90M for “general corporate purposes” [1] to continue operations. Potential has always been a precursor to the way many investors have looked at the global cannabis industry. While it’s lightyears away from the historic highs that bathed investors in a “green glow,” the past year has been a different story altogether. Companies such as Aurora and Canopy have seen the departure of high level executives, M&A activities have slowed, and to make matters worse, cannabis rescheduling by the World Health Organization (WHO) has been delayed until December 2020 at the...…

The answer is an absolute rout for cannabis stocks. To be fair, no industry has been immune to the concerns created by coronavirus disease 2019 or the subsequent haircut all of the major U.S. indexes have endured. But the marijuana industry has been particularly vulnerable for a variety of reasons . This bear market comes at a terrible time for the pot industry For starters, Canada has been contending with supply problems since day one of legalization, all the way back on Oct. 17, 2018. Regulatory agency Health Canada was particularly slow in approving cultivation and licensing applications for pot growers, and it also wound up delaying the launch of high-margin derivatives (e.g., edibles, infused beverages, vapes, topicals, and concentrates) by two months. Additionally, provincial regulators haven’t exactly...…
