Green Growth’s CBD Business Goes Into Receivership
(Cannabis, CBD, Financing, Florida, GGBXF, Green Growth, Green Growth Brands Inc, Greenhouses, Management, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio, Organic, Subsidiaries, United States, Dispensaries, Funding) Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE: GGB) (OTCQB: GGBXF) has placed the company’s CBD business into receivership . This is typically a move to avoid bankruptcy. This was the determination from the company’s special committee of the Board of Directors. Just a few weeks ago, Green Growth Brands closed down its CBD business, which was operating as the chain of Seventh Sense stores or kiosks. The company stated at that time that the stoppage in business was due to COVID19 and the closing of malls and retail areas. However, the company was struggling prior to the virus crisis. The consent to the appointment of the receiver was filed on April 2, 2020, with the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, in Franklin County, Ohio. Materials related to the filing can be accessed via the Franklin County Clerk of Courts electronic docket, which can be found at https://fcdcfcjs.co.franklin.oh.us/CaseInformationOnline/ . Technically, the CBD Business is operated by six of the company’s subsidiaries: Green...

Cannabis Regulators Respond to Coronavirus Concerns

We’ll continue to update as regulators announce new policies. So far, during the COVID-19 pandemic, cannabis sales are through the roof as consumers stock up in anticipation of supply chain disruption. But, despite this upswing, cannabis companies are bracing for impact. As Cannabis Wire reported this week, a dilemma has hit the nascent industry: to close or not to close? Already, Canopy Growth chose to close nearly two dozen shops in Canada, and we’re tracking how other companies are reacting. But what happens in the case of forced closures? Cannabis regulators will have to weigh tough decisions in the coming days as businesses, from gyms to bowling alleys to bars, are asked to close as part of broader efforts to contain the spread of the virus. (While Canadian consumers can legally order cannabis online, should closures occur, changes are taking place north of the border. On...

COVID-19’s Spread Highlights Need for More Stringent Microbial Cannabis Testing
(California, Cannabis, Compliance, Facilities, Growing, Hemp, Medical Marijuana, Ohio, Products, Quality Control, Regulations, Testing, United States, Dispensaries) As cannabis sales soar and a growing number of states declare dispensaries essential amid a growing pandemic, consumers are increasingly turning to medical marijuana and hemp for their health benefits. But in some states, those products may not be as beneficial as they seem.At a time when public health is in the limelight, the team at North Coast Testing Laboratory LLC, based in Streetsboro, Ohio, is advocating for more stringent microbial testing requirements from states to prevent people from getting sick from harmful yeast and mold on marijuana products.North Coast Testing became one of the first medical marijuana testing facilities approved in the state in 2018, and it has also received ISO 17025 accreditation.The lab conducts cannabis microbial contamination tests for yeast and mold levels using two different methods—but the one method mandated in Ohio, as well as in most states around the country, they argue, is inferior. And in the face of a growing public health crisis, both...

What Is Green Crack, and How Did This Weed Strain Get Its Insane Name?
(Candy, Cannabis, Genetics, Ohio, Strains, United States, Lights, Dispensaries) Lead photo via If you’ve visited a dispensary in the past few years, you likely saw a jar of weed labeled “Green Crack.” Rest assured, this is pure cannabis and doesn’t contain freebase cocaine, but the strain’s frenetic heady effects did contribute to its name. Since Green Crack’s name strikes many cannabis consumers as distasteful, to say the least, some pot shops gave it more socially acceptable names. Buds labeled as “Mango,” “Green Candy,” “Green Crush,” “Green Cush,” or simply “Cush” (note those are spelled with Cs and not Ks) are newer rebrandings for this classic cannabis plant. But let’s look into the strain’s storied legacy. Where Did Green Crack Come From? Like most weed strains, no one entirely knows where Green Crack got its start, where it originated, or even who first bred it. According to the legends circulating among cannabis communities online, Green Crack is the brainchild of a breeder named Cecil C. , who was (and possibly still is) based in Athens, Ohio. He...

Ohio Issues New Guidance to Help Patients Maintain Medical Cannabis Access During COVID-19 Outbreak
(Cannabis, Medical Marijuana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Regulations, United States, Dispensaries) As part of its coronavirus response, the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP) has issued new guidance to help patients maintain access to medical cannabis.Medical cannabis dispensaries are considered essential and can remain open under the state’s March 22 stay at home order.The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has announced a temporary expansion of caregiver registration to allow patients to have up to three caregivers. Patients can add a caregiver by submitting an application directly to the Board of Pharmacy.Due to the closure of Ohio’s BMV locations, the Board of Pharmacy has also adopted new photo identification requirements that allow patients to use an expired method of identification under certain conditions to purchase medical cannabis. Minor patients under the age of 18 may use a birth certificate as an acceptable form of identification.In addition, the Board of Pharmacy will now allow patients and caregivers to place phone orders with the state’s medical cannabis...

Declaring CB ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history
(California, Cannabis, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Stocks, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Declaring CB ‘essential’ marks a watershed moment in history The COVID-19 pandemic has forced government officials to make life-or-death decisions about which goods and services are essential, and which are not. Essential businesses stay open; those not on the list must close to the public. In state after state, and province after province, regulators have declared medical marijuana essential. This is a watershed moment worth noting. In California, New York, Washington, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado, Nevada, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, governors have closed non-essential businesses, but specifically allowed medical (and sometimes adult-use) cannabis dispensaries to remain open.

The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-...

Most Americans Want Medical Cannabis Dispensaries to Stay Open During Lockdown
(Alcohol, Arizona, California, Cannabis, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Legalization, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Mexico, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, United States, Washington, Dispensaries) Most Americans believe that states should not restrict access to legal medical cannabis during “shelter-in-place” measures, according to a new poll . The poll , conducted by YouGov earlier this week, asked nearly 5,400 Americans whether medical marijuana dispensaries should be considered “essential services” or not. Slightly over half (53 percent) of all respondents agreed that access to medical marijuana was essential, and only 26 percent said that dispensaries should not be considered essential. A further 21 percent were undecided on the matter. As is often the case with cannabis-related polls , younger and more liberal respondents were more likely to be in favor of keeping dispensaries open. Between 54 and 59 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 54 agreed that medical marijuana is an essential service, but only 47 percent of those over 55 felt the same way. Democrats were also more likely (62 percent) to agree than independents (52 percent) or Republicans (43 percent...

But the shutdowns have prompted perhaps an unexpected question amid the coronavirus chaos: Are medical marijuana operations considered “essential” in this new public arena? For many areas across the U.S., the answer is a resounding “yes.”Over in San Francisco, though, that wasn’t always the case. All seven counties in the Bay Area of California implemented a shelter-in-place order March 16. The order, which is in place until at least April 7, included a list of essential services that could remain open but left room for interpretation regarding other businesses, including...

Coronavirus Is Killing Weed Legalization Bills Across the US
(Cannabis, China, France, Iran, Italy, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Recreational, Spain, United States) As the COVID-19 pandemic consumes every waking — and sleeping — moment right now, marijuana legalization bills that had excellent chances at becoming law are instead getting shelved. State lawmakers across the US are suspending their legislative sessions for weeks or months to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, even as progressive states deem marijuana businesses as “essential services” alongside emergency responders and pharmacies amid the pandemic. Cannabis reform bills aren’t being singled out for delays, but rather they are no longer prioritized as states attempt to control the coronavirus crisis that threatens the lives of millions of at-risk individuals and the nation’s economy. Last week, New York State’s chances of making progress on its recreational legalization bill stalled as legislators scrambled to restructure the state’s budget to address coronavirus containment, diagnosis, and treatment. Of all US states, New York has reported the highest number of confirmed...
