Hemp and CBD Set to Eclipse the THC Marijuana Market

CannabisNewsWire Editorial Coverage: As the cannabis market continues to grow, hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) are occupying an increasingly large share of the escalating industry.

  • Hemp, the form of cannabis without psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is an important part of the cannabis market.
  • Hemp is common in many health and wellness products.
  • Total sales of hemp-derived products are expected to exceed $1 billion this year.
  • Some industry experts expect hemp products to soon exceed marijuana for their share of the cannabis industry.

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) (SGMD Profile) is taking advantage of this shift by making a heavy investment in hemp production. Medical marijuana company Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) bridges the gap between product types through its production of CBD oils. One of the largest cannabis growers in Canada, Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE: CGC) provides plants used in a wide range of products. GW Pharmaceuticals Plc (NASDAQ: GWPH) has created the first cannabis-derived prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

420 with CNW – Opioid Alternative Launched in California by Cannabis Company

C3 International recently launched a ground-breaking painkiller derived from cannabis as an alternative to the conventional prescription opioids that have been linked to so many issues, such as the possibility of addiction, constipation, incoherence, loss of appetite and other side effects.

The pill made by C3 International is unique because it is a standardized product that can be trusted to deliver the same results at a given dosage for those who use it.

The company says that its product doesn’t have any psychoactive ingredients since only CBD was extracted and added to a formulation of other ingredients calculated to provide different doses of marijuana based on the needs of a patient.

The tablet provides an easy way for doctors to prescribe and ensure that a patient is consuming the required quantity of the therapeutic product within the stipulated intervals.

This is different from what has been happening with the existing edible or smoking marijuana products whose medicinal content often varied from one batch purchased to the next. It is also common for the ingredients to vary from one plant to another. This makes it hard to be certain that the patient is receiving the exact quantity of curative ingredients to produce the desired results without triggering any unwanted effects.

The ingredients used to make the new pill are extracted from cloned plants which yield a uniform amount and quality of the desired ingredients. One can therefore be sure that each pill will contain exactly the same amount of ingredients as any other pill made by the same manufacturer.

Unfortunately, this product is only available within the state of California, so patients elsewhere may have to wait. Federal laws prohibit marijuana or any products derived from it to cross state lines, so the new pill cannot be provided outside California.

Those who are within California may also be pleased to learn that several insurance providers will cover the cost of getting these novel pills. One simply has to contact their insurer and confirm that the company can be billed for the cannabis pills.

The pill launched by C3 International is likely to be one of many new products which will hit the market in the states where marijuana has been decriminalized in some form. If one could only take a sneak peek into Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) and Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) to learn what they intend to introduce on the rapidly evolving marijuana market!

  • Large and mid-tier cannabis companies are absorbing their smaller competitors.

420 with CNW – LA International Airport Allows Travelers to Carry Marijuana

Los Angeles International Airport announced that passengers were free to have cannabis on them or in their luggage when boarding flights as long as it didn’t exceed the amount allowed by California law. Currently, 28.5 grams or 8grams of concentrated cannabis (oil, for example) can be carried by someone within the state. This only applies to people who are 21-years of age or more.

However, individuals who are carrying cannabis legally may still face prosecution once they are discovered by the Transport Safety Administration (TSA) agents at the airport. The TSA is obliged by law to notify local law enforcement (police) once someone is found with marijuana.

It is up to the police to decide whether to prosecute that person, seize the marijuana, or let the person board his or her flight. LA police has already said they will not prosecute anyone who hasn’t exceeded the legal limit of how much someone can carry.

This doesn’t mean passengers will not suffer any inconveniences. The interview by TSA agents before one is handed over to local police may make that person miss his or her flight even if the possibility of prosecution is waived by the police.

A lot of confusion is likely to result from the conflicting rules being followed by the Transportation Safety Administration and the local police.

Passengers are better off avoiding having any cannabis on them when they go to the airport. This will save them from finding out the hard way the kind of delays and back and forth issues that can arise when pot is found on you.

Passengers are also advised to keep in mind the laws of the different states through which they intend to travel since what is legal in one state may be criminal in another state.

A city councilman in LA has even suggested that so-called amnesty bins be availed at the airport so that passengers can place their marijuana in the bin before they get to a TSA checkpoint.

That idea isn’t as far-fetched as it may sound, because Las Vegas has about two dozen such bins at the McCarran International Airport.

The amnesty bin idea has its weaknesses because it means that a passenger will lose his or her legally purchased stash. The better option would be to harmonize the federal airspace rules with the rules in each state so that passengers aren’t left at the mercy of the individual officers who find cannabis in their luggage or on their person.

The contradicting positions of TSA and local police regarding cannabis clearly highlight the challenges that companies like Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) and Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) have to grapple with in the different jurisdictions where they have operations.

Hydroponic Hardware Key to Tapping Long-Term Profits of Burgeoning Cannabis Market

CannabisNewsWire Editorial Coverage: The North American cannabis market continues to accelerate as Canada rockets towards the October 17 deadline for the nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana.

  • Hydroponic market trying to keep up with booming cannabis market set to exceed $25 billion by 2021.
  • Continued expansion of cannabis cultivation and demand for controllable production parameters are a boon to hydroponics industry.
  • Healthcare sector increasing demand for CBD from sources such as industrial hemp.
  • Regulatory reform throughout North America and Europe driving change in overall space.

The milestone legislation appears set to open the door wider for companies pursuing a position in the promising sector, including those consolidating vectors within the still highly fragmented hydroponics supply sector. The global hydroponic market alone was worth nearly $3.5 billion last year and is set to break $10 billion by 2023, maintaining a healthy 18.2 percent CAGR. Recently projected revenue growth to more than $30 million next year illustrates the lofty aspirations of hydroponics supplier Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD) (SGMD Profile), a company that recently reported a sequential revenue increase of some 215 percent and a year-over-year revenue increase of approximately 228 percent for revenues of just under $3 million in the most recent quarter.

420 with CNW – Utah Set to Vote on Legalization of Medical Cannabis

Voters in Utah are set to vote on a bill (Proposition 2) that would legalize access to medical cannabis. The polls are slated for November 6, 2018.

Prop 2 is unique from other mid-term issues to be voted upon because it originated from voters themselves rather than from their elected leaders. Over 113,000 voter signatures were collected in order to get this matter on the ballot.

Under the proposed law, individuals with a health condition that meets the requirements stated in the Act can get a recommendation from a doctor. That recommendation can then be used to apply for a medical marijuana card which will be used to purchase cannabis at licensed dispensaries.

HIV/AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are some of the diseases/conditions that qualify for treatment using medical cannabis.

Several opinion polls show that Prop 2 enjoys massive public support, so it stands a high chance of being voted into law early next month.

However, the strong opposition to Proposition 2 cannot be ignored. For example, the Governor has been open about his opposition to the Act. Law enforcement agencies are also against this law.

The Mormon Church has also voiced its concerns about the proposed law. The church insists that the law should not be passed in its present form because it doesn’t contain enough safeguards to prevent medical cannabis from being abused.

For example, one provision in the law grants patients permission to grow up to six cannabis plants for their own use in case such patients cannot find a licensed dispensary within a radius of 100 miles from their residence. How will such cannabis be monitored to ensure that it is used for the right purpose and in the right way?

The Utah Medical Association also opposes the Utah Medical Cannabis Act (Prop 2). They feel that medical cannabis isn’t being treated like the drug it is intended to be. For instance, medicines should be controlled in terms of dosage. The proposed law only sets a limit on how much cannabis a patient may buy within a 14-day period. Who is to stop such a patient from consuming all that cannabis within a few days before waiting for the fortnight to elapse in order to be eligible to buy more?

The rest of the country is watching and waiting to see if Utah will become state number 32 on the list of U.S states where medical cannabis is legal. Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) and Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD) must be taking notes as these developments unfold.

Green Rush Offers Enticing Secondary Business Opportunities

CannabisNewsWire Editorial Coverage: Legal marijuana sales in North America hit $6.7 billion in 2016 – a 34 percent jump from the previous year, making it the fastest-growing industry on the planet, according to Arcview Market Research’s 2017 report on the marijuana market. The research firm expects those figures to soar to nearly $23 billion by 2021. Companies that provide products and services related to the broader cannabis economy enjoy huge growth potential as the industry continues its inevitable march toward full legalization, and few of them require touching a single leaf of the highly regulated plant. Companies such as SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) (SING Profile), United Cannabis Corp. (CNAB), Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), GreenGro Technologies, Inc. (GRNH) and Kush Bottles, Inc. (KSHB) are banking on pursuing those ancillary revenue streams as they look to the future.

Predictably, the cannabis market is scaling up at profound rates as changing public perceptions and shifts in attitudes toward the use of medical and recreational marijuana begin to shape legislative policies.
