420 with CNW – Stanford Research Shows Marijuana Improves the Sex Life of Women

Researchers at Stanford University were intrigued by the numerous reports on the internet claiming that cannabis was beneficial to the sex lives of women. The researchers therefore decided to put that anecdotal evidence to the test. The results, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, confirmed that women had better sexual experiences if they consumed cannabis before indulging in sex.

Don’t imagine that bespectacled old scientists stood by with their microscopes and other instruments in order to measure what was happening as the study’s subjects had sex. No, nothing of the sort happened.

Instead, an Obstetrics/Gynecology (ObGyn) clinical practice was used to recruit nearly 200 adult women who were sexually active. The participants were given questionnaires eliciting their assessment of how cannabis affected their sex lives.

Of those who said that they consumed cannabis before having sex, 68 percent admitted that sex was more enjoyable for them. 72 percent of those who said cannabis makes sex more pleasurable added that those beneficial effects happened each time they had sex after consuming cannabis.

Interestingly, 62 percent of the respondents who consumed cannabis before having sex revealed that cannabis made their orgasms more intense and pleasurable. None reported that her sex drive reduced as a result of consuming cannabis before having sex.

27 percent of the respondents also admitted that marijuana helped to increase vaginal lubrication during sex. However, 37 percent said they didn’t observe any change in the level of lubrication whether they consumed cannabis before sex or not.

16 percent of the women in the study admitted that they took cannabis before having sex in order to reduce the pain they normally felt during intercourse. 83 percent in this category of women said pain during intercourse was reduced each time they consumed marijuana prior to having sex.

While releasing their findings, the researchers said that the results above were their preliminary findings since they intended to continue the study over a longer time and include more respondents.

However, the researchers were convinced that it was indeed true that the consumption of cannabis resulted in an overall improved sex life for women.  Only 10 percent of the respondents claimed that their sex lives weren’t improved by cannabis consumption prior to sex. The degree of that improvement (or lack thereof) seems to be impacted by other factors which are yet to be identified. Cannabis companies like The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) and The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) may not have been surprised by the findings of this research since they are aware of the massive benefits of cannabis in the different aspects of life.

420 with CNW – The Largest Cannabis Store in the World Opens in Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Not so, if the recently opened recreational cannabis megastore is anything to go buy. Las Vegas has always been known for setting the bar when it comes to giving people a good time, but the level to which “Planet 13” has taken cannabis will send waves around the world due to its massive size and opulence.

Nevada State Senator Tick Segerblom summarized it well in his opening remarks when he said, “Welcome to Amsterdam on steroids!” Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, has previously held the record for being the best destination for those who want to consume recreational cannabis.

Now Planet 13 has bested the entire Amsterdam, and some. All in one swell swoop. The mega-store is located in what was formally a warehouse but now hosts the 112,000 square-foot recreational cannabis retail giant. The facility has a mind-boggling 45 cash registers intended to serve the patron who will visit this superstore to sample what is on offer.

The superstore also has interactive LED displays that are designed to magnify the glitz and glamor of the facility.

Larry Sheffler, the business partner of the CEO of Planet 13 said that their intention was to “out-Vegas Vegas” when they set up the megastore. The results of their efforts certainly don’t disappoint.

Planet 13 is strategically located within a walking distance of other tourist attractions and facilities like Mirage, Treasure Island and Palazzo. Even Trump International Hotel is within a walking distance from the cannabis retail superstore.

The cannabis retail megastore plans to lure more people to spend their money on Nevada’s adult-use cannabis for decades to come. Nevada legalized recreational cannabis in 2016 and retail sales started in July the following year (2017).

The maiden year of adult-use cannabis sales raked in revenues that exceeded the optimistic projections by 40 percentage. That year, the state government earned $70 million in taxes from the retail sales of cannabis worth $425 million.

Many of the politicians present at the launch remarked that Nevada had learnt from Washington and Colorado and decided to make the regulators work closely with the cannabis industry instead of taking a hostile stance that would have stifled the growth seen so far.

The cannabis-free formal launch of Planet 13 was followed by an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 1 to start retail sales there officially. Anyone keen to sample the cannabis sold there can now visit the megastore. If you are from a state that hasn’t legalized adult-use cannabis as yet, treat yourself to what is available at Planet 13 while taking comfort in the maxim that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! You can bet that Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) and Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) are toasting to Planet 13 and wishing it the very best Vegas and cannabis have to offer.

420 with CNW – South African Cannabis Workshop Tickets Sell Out in Record Time

The first weekend of November witnessed the first ever cannabis grow workshop in Cape Town, South Africa. Event tickets were sold out in two days flat after the organizer, Grant Taylor, went to social media to announce the event.

He said that the idea of organizing a workshop on how to grow marijuana was motivated by two things. First, the Constitutional Court ruled recently that adults were free to grow and consume cannabis in South Africa as long as it wasn’t sold or consumed in public.

Secondly, Grant had previously tried to grow something and he had failed miserably. He had also recently heard many people who live in apartments saying that it was impossible for them to grow anything in such an environment.

The workshop was therefore organized to teach people the complexities involved in growing cannabis organically. To that end, organic soil and pots were also on sale so that event attendees could go and start cultivating their own marijuana or any other plant they wished to grow.

Grant and his team of organizers didn’t have any cannabis seeds or plants on sale during the workshop. This omission was deliberate since the court ruling allowing citizens to grow and consume marijuana didn’t permit the sale of marijuana or its products.

Grant Taylor admitted that putting the event together wasn’t a smooth task. He was denied the venue he preferred because the management at that venue wasn’t comfortable about hosting a cannabis workshop in their premises.

Grant had used that same venue in the past to host trainings in hydroponics, but that history wasn’t enough to secure the venue for a workshop on cannabis.

Grant isn’t deterred by such setbacks and he plans to host similar events in future.

For now, one of the co-organizers of the cannabis workshop is going to set up and run a vlog (video blog) on cannabis while Grant will set up a Facebook group and manage it in addition to operating a website on cannabis cultivation.

Contrary to what some people may have thought, the Grow Cannabis Workshop wasn’t attended by drug addicts. Ordinary people like florists, nurses and dentists were in attendance to learn how to grow this plant.

Those interviewed at the workshop said that they wanted to learn how to grow cannabis so that they could have a supply for medicinal use.

It is such ordinary people that give Grant his drive to create a group of likeminded people for purposes of sharing ideas and experiences. Cannabis companies like SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) and Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) know that it is through people like Grant Taylor that major changes can take place in any community.

420 with CNW – Documentary About Medical Cannabis Benefits Released

A new film focusing on how medical cannabis has helped children suffering from cancer has been released. The film is titled “Weed the People”.

Abby Esptein, the director of the movie, said that the purpose of the film was to address the stigma directed at medical marijuana.

The documentary shows babies whose lives are literary fading away as a result of undergoing chemo and other conventional forms of cancer treatment. However, the use of medical cannabis transforms the lives of those babies and saves many of them from imminent death.

The movie traces the journey of different parents who are battling to access medical marijuana in order to save their kids’ lives from the ravages of cancer.

The timing of the movie seems to have been perfect given that the FDA recently approved a cannabis-derived drug for the treatment of epilepsy. Such regulatory approval seems to go against the long-held attitude towards cannabis as something that doesn’t possess any medical value.

Rickie Lake, the producer of “Weed the People” says cannabis was a medicine for thousands of years and it has only been a restricted substance for about 80 years. That restriction was the result of people being brainwashed to abandon the use of a plant with nearly countless benefits, the producer added.

The filmmakers revealed that their project has been in the making for the past five years, so no one should imagine that the film was motivated by the recent wave of public opinion in favor of medical marijuana.

They hope that the film will provide the missing link which will convince the general public about the usefulness of cannabis. They also hope that the movie will help to propel understanding of medical cannabis, and possibly address the opioid epidemic in the country.

In the film, parents choose medical marijuana instead of prescription meds. The results show how right those parents were since their kids improve remarkably while they are on medical cannabis treatment.

The producer of “Weed the People” says that her interest is to create awareness about the different treatment options available to patients. Whether or not those patients opt for medical marijuana is of little interest to her as long as any decision that a patient or caregiver makes is an informed one.

After watching the stories of the approximately half a dozen children on medical marijuana, one is left asking himself or herself why the American federal government is so opposed to legalizing a substance which is having such untold benefits to kids with cancer. You can bet your last dollar that Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTCQX: PHVAF) and Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) are asking themselves that same question.

420 with CNW – Why US Cannabis Companies Are Listing in Canada

Over the coming months and years, more and more U.S. cannabis companies are likely to move north in order to list on stock exchanges in Canada. Many short term and long-term interests are driving this move.

First, Canada recently legalized recreational cannabis years after medical cannabis was permitted in that country. This means that the uniform laws in Canada make that country more attractive (for now) than the U.S. where marijuana companies operating in legal states must constantly look over their shoulders in fear because the federal authorities can take action against them for violating federal laws.

Legitimate cannabis companies in the U.S. constantly feel hunted and moving to Canada can provide some reprieve from the legal issues back home.

The legal issues in the U.S. also make it nearly impossible for cannabis companies to access banking services. Companies conduct all their transactions using cash, and it is hard to find where to keep all that money.

The Canadian environment allows marijuana companies to access some measure of banking services although the bigger banks that have an international presence still keep cannabis businesses at arm’s length due to fears about possible complications in the U.S. and other countries where marijuana is illegal.

Another reason that is driving U.S. marijuana companies across the border to the north is the friendlier listing requirements in Canada when compared to the conditions in the U.S.

For example, only companies that are valued at more than $100 million in publicly held securities can apply to list on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). NASDAQ accepts companies whose pre-tax income has been at least $11 million for three years in a row.

Those strict conditions make it hard for marijuana companies to list as soon as they would want in order to access financing to grow and consolidate their positions in the market.

In contrast, the TSX exchange requires a company to have books of accounts that show that the company had at least $300,000 as their pre-tax income the year before they apply to list. Of course there are other conditions, but the income/company valuation differences show how friendlier the stock exchanges in Canada are.

Furthermore, the stock exchanges in the U.S., such as the NYSE, don’t have many purely cannabis businesses listed (partly because of federal laws). Biopharmaceutical companies like GW Pharmaceuticals are the ones one is likely to find on those exchanges. This limits the opportunities for serious market activity for the industry.

Canada has numerous cannabis businesses traded publicly. This provides a vibrant market for companies which want to benefit from the capital that can be got when companies are listed.

As you can see from the factors above, the exodus of U.S. cannabis companies into Canada is likely to continue until conditions back home improve and open that potentially bigger market. Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE), NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL) and other companies with interests in the marijuana sector can only hope that the U.S. market opens up sooner.

420 with CNW – Colorado Jury Rejects RICO Act Claim Against Marijuana Company

A few days ago, we reported about a landmark case in Colorado that had the potential to set a precedent that could have huge implications for the cannabis industry across the US. In that lawsuit, a couple sued a marijuana grow facility for making the plaintiffs’ property “lose value” due to the smell coming from the indoor cultivation facility.

That case was the very first of its nature to reach a jury and the entire cannabis industry watched with bated breath to see what decision will be made once the hearings end and the jury retires to make its verdict.

The defendant had planned to use property rate valuations as proof that the claim was unfounded since the state kept collecting higher taxes from that neighbor’s property due to the property’s increase in value despite the presence of the indoor grow in the area.

The case was heard and the jury withdrew to consider the evidence and arrive at a decision. In less than half a day, the verdict was ready and the plaintiffs’ claim was dismissed.

It is unlikely that the couple will appeal the federal court’s decision in a higher court since they stand a minimal chance of succeeding after this decision.

Industry watchers and the legal fraternity have said that the Colorado decision may have poured water on any other individuals or groups that were planning to target cannabis companies using the anti-racketeering laws of the mafia era.

In fact, three other lawsuits of the same nature are still pending in Oregon, Massachusetts and California. It isn’t known how many other copycat lawsuits would have been filed if the events in Denver had gone against Parker Walton’s cannabis grow facility, but chances are high that opportunistic law firms would have egged on many property owners to file cases.

The jury’s verdict has therefore put a dampener on all those who were harboring thoughts of shifting their attack against the cannabis industry to another front.

However, the risk of lawsuits still remains since there is a mismatch between the laws in states where marijuana is legal and federal laws that regard cannabis as a Schedule 1 substance (no medical use but a high likelihood of being abused). It is also very expensive to defend against such lawsuits, and Walton may have ended up losing his business if the jury had ruled against him.

Other companies in the industry, such as Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) and Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) may be celebrating the verdict from Denver, but other threats to the industry still remain.

420 with CNW – Mexico Could Soon Legalize Recreational Marijuana

As the U.S. is still grappling with how to deal with the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada, its challenges are likely to increase if what is happening in its other neighbor’s legal system results in the legalization of recreational pot.

Last week, the Supreme Court in Mexico made two rulings to the effect that it was unconstitutional to prevent adults from consuming marijuana if they so wished. The cases that resulted in those rulings had been filed by individuals who were challenging the constitutionality of stopping them from consuming recreational marijuana.

The court observed that adults have the right to choose whether or not to consume cannabis, so it is improper to deny them that right.

Between 2015 and 2017, three similar rulings were made by the Supreme Court, which is the highest court in Mexico.

The court ruling also indicated that the right isn’t absolute, so the state still has the mandate to restrict the exercise of that right. Individuals must therefore argue their case before the judicial system in order to get express permission to consume a restricted substance.

However, the previous three rulings on the subject now bring the total number of similar rulings by the Supreme Court to five. Under Mexican law, any subject that accumulates five similar rulings in the Supreme Court sets a precedent which all the other courts must follow.

In effect, that means that no court will be able to object to anyone who applies to start consuming recreational marijuana. The bigger implication is that the way has been cleared for recreational marijuana to be legalized since the legislators cannot leave such an issue unregulated now that the Supreme Court has made five rulings in favor of the complainants who challenged the constitutionality of the criminalization of adult-use marijuana.

A similar scenario played out over same-sex marriages. The Supreme Court made five rulings allowing gay couples to wed so it was no longer possible for such a marriage to be blocked through judicial means. However, no law has been passed as yet to regulate same-sex marriages.

Recreational marijuana is different in that the way may have been opened for thousands or even millions of people to apply to the courts of law in order to be allowed to consume recreational marijuana. Such a possibility can choke the legal system, not to mention the public health and safety concerns that may arise when such a large number of people is allowed to consume recreational marijuana in the absence of any laws to regulate such consumption other than the requirement that the individuals don’t sell the substance.

It is therefore likely that the country’s legislative body (congress) will soon draft a law to regulate recreational marijuana. Medical marijuana became legal in 2017, so it isn’t as though drafting laws on marijuana will be a new thing for the legislators.

It remains to be seen how the U.S. will respond to the legalization of recreational marijuana by all its neighbors. Already, the government has been fighting the smuggling of marijuana from Mexico. Companies with interests in the marijuana industry, such as GreenBox POS, LLC (OTC: GRBX) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) may be pleased that additional markets will soon open and increase their opportunities.

420 with CNW – Study Explains Why Cannabis Affects Men and Women Differently

A recent review of animal studies has found that the differences in the way men and women are affected by marijuana aren’t just a social or cultural construct. The review found that those differences are rooted in biology (the differences between the genders).

The findings of the review appeared in the journal Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience. The review explored the relationship between sex hormones like estrogen (estradiol), progesterone and testosterone on the endocannabinoid system in the body. That endocannabinoid system has similar (cannabinoids) chemicals to those found in cannabis.

The researchers found that males are more likely to try marijuana and also use higher doses of the substance. This can be attributed to the male sex hormone (testosterone) which encourages risky behavior.

Those same male sex hormones also suppress the reward system of the brain. This explains why higher doses may need to be consumed to get the same effect as the person felt upon first consuming the substance.

The suppressed reward system explains why men often take longer to get hooked on a substance. In contrast, women try smaller doses but get hooked faster than their male counterparts do.

Women have more cannabinoid receptors in their brains than men do. The receptors are concentrated in the areas of the brain which control the filtering of sensory input sent to the brain, body movement and social behavior. Women are therefore more likely to exhibit signs of being under the influence of cannabis when compared to men.

It was also found that the consumption of cannabis and other psychotropic substances often triggers the production of more estradiol in women. This triggers the urge to consume more cannabis or whatever substance has triggered the production of estradiol. Addiction is the result of that cycle.

The researchers found that the number of cannabinoid receptors in the brain of females increases as the individuals age. Increasing age has been correlated to high estrogen levels in women, so this finding isn’t different from what has already been known about the hormonal system of women.

Dr. Liana Fattore, the co-author of the study, remarked that detoxification programs need to be customized for the different genders if success rates are to increase. The measures to prevent a relapse into substance abuse should also be tailored to the needs and risks of each gender.

The study authors also called for further research to be conducted to get a better understanding of the source of the differences in the way men and women respond to cannabis. Cannabis companies like Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTC: DVLP) and Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (OTC: GRYN) appreciate the work done by scientists to help society understand how and why cannabis affects the body.
