Weed Parties for Seniors is Now a Thing

When you’re reading as much cannabis news as I am, every once in a while you come across something truly awesome.

Octavia Wellness, written up in a beautiful article by Quartz, is bringing clarity and guidance to seniors who seek cannabis treatment for the various symptoms they are encountering. Especially those on opioids, who are using cannabis to mitigate the side effects of their medication.

The startup, founded by Carrie Tice in April 2015, visits senior living facilities to have meetings where residents get help with their weed needs – everything from help applying for a recommendation online to advice on how to use the various tinctures, creams, pills and bud forms of cannabis.

Seniors and Weed – A Personal Connection

Ms Tice’s personal history inspired her to leave a career in video games to form this company. Her Grandmother experienced significant and instant reduction in symptoms of Alzheimers with the use of topical mmj creams. Ms. Tice learned quickly that seniors are the least served potential users of cannabis and may just be the most in need.

This idea is catching on with investors as well. Octavia Wellness has attracted support to the tune of $300,000 and is on track to raise $1M next year. This creative idea may thrive, especially as recreational cannabis becomes de rigeur and acceptance of the plant continues to reach into more conservative enclaves.

British MPs Estimate £1Bn Tax Revenue from Legal Cannabis Market

Members of the British government are singing a new tune about cannabis. Recognizing the many positive elements of legalization, MPs are urging their government to consider moving Britain’s drug policy towards cannabis legalization. These politicians cite the vast tax revenues to be earned, the decrease in drug offenders serving time in jail and the regulation of a market that is currently underground.

Many Benefits from British Legalization

Market research shows Britain has a potential £6Bn market for legal cannabis. Sales at that number would create between £750 million and £1.06Bn in tax revenue. The 1,363 prisoners in jail for cannabis-related offenses would decrease and potentially save the British people £50 million per year.

Former deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, is encouraging UK leadership to look at the global trend towards legalization, and to join Portual, Canada, the US, Germany and others in moving towards an end of prohibition.

According to recent article on civilized.life, experts on legalization and marijuana legislation are actively working on measures in Texas, Louisiana, Utah, South Carolina and Nebraska for medical and Vermont, Maryland, Rhode Island and Michigan (by ballot initiative) for recreational use.

These updates were shared by a panel called “Win, Lose or Draw: 2016 Election Postgame” at the 5th Annual Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.

Why Federal Studies of Marijiuana Show Surprisingly Ineffective Results

Ever wondered why when independent study after study is able to find marijuana effective in numerous medical applications but the FDA doesn’t seem to find any?

It turns out, there’s a real reason for it – the pot used by the federal studies contains only a fraction of the active properties that weed used for independent studies has.

There is currently a single farm that supplies weed to the government for research. According to this article on attn.com, the weed used in federal studies clocks in at about 4% THC with a minimal cannabinoid profile. Could this be the reason for such divergent results?

Looking for easy to understand information about the current legalization results in the 2016 Election? I know we were! We spent a good chunk of time just searching the web for a clean and clear run down of the most recent electoral results and after wading through sensational articles and off-topic stats, we landed on NORML’s site.

NORML’s mission is “to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high quality marijuana that is safe, convenient and affordable.”
