Global CBD market expected to grow by 40 percent this year

Submitted by Marijuana News CBD is the new sliced bread, toilet paper on rolls, and bottled spring water. And we can expect to see more traditional business sectors getting into CBD in the near future. If the non-intoxicating marijuana compound cannabidiol (CBD) were a deadly virus sent to Earth by the Devil himself, it would be well on its way to rendering the global population extinct within the next few years. If it were a stark-raving mad serial killer fresh out of the asylum, there would be a murderous rampage underway that would later be revealed as the largest...

Olivia Newton John Claims Cannabis Has “Helped Me Greatly” With Cancer Battle

By Heather Finn The actress was hesitant to try the alternative treatment at first, but her husband convinced her to take the leap. Ever since Olivia Newton-John’s first breast cancer diagnosis in 1992, the pop icon’s family, friends, and fans have been there cheering her on. But even as she’s publicly battled the disease, she’s never let it define her: In fact, since her cancer came back in 2013 (and again in 2017), she’s used it as inspiration to help others by opening her own public hospital: the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre in Australia. This week...

CBD and hemp may be legal but discrimination continues

Submitted by Marijuana News It’s a problem that virtually all cannabis professionals have had to face at least one time—or a succession of times—in their careers. For Sabina King, 42, CEO of Ashland, Oregon-based Hempure CBD, a maker of hemp-derived CBD products, the industry’s prevalent banking challenge has been the scourge of her once promising startup. But this balm of familiarity has done little to ease her dilemma. “If somebody told me all about the obstacles I would encounter [in the CBD space], I’d say no way,” she said. Although Hempure CBD does “have a proper bank to hold...

How to talk to your doctor about cannabis use

Submitted by Marijuana News Have you had a bad experience disclosing cannabis use to a doctor? Did a doctor’s attitude toward cannabis impact the quality of care you received? You’re not alone. Unfortunately, a prevailing stigma, lack of exposure to current marijuana research, and confusion about the legality of discussing cannabis with patients are still barriers within the medical community that keep doctors from treating their cannabis-using patients accurately and fairly. One thing medical and non-medical cannabis users have in common with the rest of the world is that all need access to medical care. So what is a...

Cannabis ingredient CBD could one day become an antibiotic

Submitted by Marijuana News As scientists work to stem the tide of antibiotic resistance, the authors of a study believe an ingredient in cannabis could one day form the basis of a new drug. Antibiotic, or antimicrobial, resistance is where bugs such as bacteria can survive drugs created to kill them, making infections difficult, or impossible, to treat. Scientists in Australia found cannabidiol—the non-psychoactive ingredient marijuana— killed all the strains of bacteria they tested in a lab, including some which are highly resistant to existing antibiotics. What’s more, the bacteria did not become resistant to the drug after being...

Global cannabis market will nearly triple to US$40.6B by 2024: Study

Can CBD Really Do All That?

Concept and diagram by Paul Sahre. Photo illustration by Jamie Chung. Prop styling by Anna Surbatovich When Catherine Jacobson first heard about the promise of cannabis, she was at wits’ end. Her 3-year-old son, Ben, had suffered from epileptic seizures since he was 3 months old, a result of a brain malformation called polymicrogyria. Over the years, Jacobson and her husband, Aaron, have tried giving him at least 16 different drugs, but none provided lasting relief. They lived with the grim prognosis that their son — whose cognitive abilities never advanced beyond those of a 1-year-old — would likely...
