Indica vs. Sativa: Is there really a difference?

Indica equals “In Da Couch” and Sativa gets your mind stimulated. That, along with earthy aromas for indica and a sweeter smell for sativa, is how the thinking goes. But this may be an extreme simplification that just doesn’t hold up when analyzed. A team of researchers at Dalhousie University went deep, studying hundreds of […]

Big Marijuana Recall happening in Michigan

After testing for most products was botched over a three month period at Viridis Laboratories in Michigan, the state’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency has issued a large recall.

South Carolina Republicans come out against Federal Legalization effort

So maybe federal legalization isn’t as bipartisan as we previously thought… As soon as Republican Representative Nancy Mace announced her legalization bill, GOP lawmakers from her hometown of South Carolina released a statement against the effort. “Unequivocally, the South Carolina Republican Party is against any effort to legalize, decriminalize the use of controlled substances, and […]

Federal Legalization Bill unveiled by House Republicans

The war of “Legalization Details” is about the begin–a new phase spawned after everyone is pretty much in agreement that the plant should be legal.

Canopy Growth buys edibles company Wana for $297 million

A pretty huge merger went under our radar last month, with Canopy Growth, the biggest marijuana company in Canada, buying up a Colorado-based edibles company Wana. They are the number one edibles brand in North America, so Canopy Growth’s interest is certainly warranted. This comes at a time where more and more Canadian companies are […]

Marijuana Election News: What Changed Across the Country

It was an off-year election yesterday, but that doesn’t mean big referendums on the topic of marijuana and psychedelics didn’t occur. One of the biggest results, of course, is the election of a Republican Governor in Virginia.
