Medical Marijuana, Inc. Continues International Expansion with Distribution in Bermuda – Cannabistical: of or concerning cannabis.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® announces partnership with Bermuda pharmacy to sell RSHO CBD products on the island. HempMeds® has partnered with Northshore Pharmacy in Bermuda to sell the company’s flagship Real Scientific Hemp Oil CBD oil products in their store. This partnership will make it easier than ever before for consumers to access CBD products in Bermuda. CBD products are considered a non-prescription product in Bermuda, meaning that customers on the island looking to purchase it do not need to visit a doctor first.
A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda is self-governing, with its own constitution and its own government. The pharmacy is located in the Northshore Medical & Aesthetics Center, which was created to help the people of Bermuda improve their physical, visual, mental, and sexual health with a range of health service offerings by expert physicians and healthcare workers. Because it is part of a larger medical services facility, Northshore Pharmacy receives increased foot traffic, increasing the number of consumers who will encounter RSHO products on the pharmacy’s shelves. The entire Bermuda market consists of a growing population of over 65,000 people. HempMeds®’ entry into the Bermuda market is part of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s larger international expansion efforts.
HempMeds® was the first company to distribute CBD products in a number of markets, including Puerto Rico, Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay. Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company Kannaway recently hosted its largest event ever to celebrate its successful soft launch into the European Union market. HempMeds® is excited to make RSHO CBD products available to the residents of Bermuda.
As we write this, cannabis-infused soaps, lotions, shampoos, perfumes, and other assorted beautifying potions are piled high all around us. Pro-pot day spas are also helping to advance marijuana’s makeover. The LoDo Massage Studio in Denver and Renu Day Spa in Deerfield, IL, both incorporate cannabis-spiked creams into their most popular body treatments. LoDo’s Mile High Massage elevates a basic Swedish rubdown with a hit of pain-relieving lotion laced with tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol – two of the most potent active chemicals made by the Cannabis sativa plant. Both are known for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory powers – THC, of course, is responsible for weed’s inebriating effects.
To answer everyone’s burning question: No, cannabis creams cannot get you high. Editor-in-chief Elaine D’Farley says the growing support for marijuana legalization and an increased awareness of the potential benefits of cannabis are the driving forces behind this movement. As it stands, Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, Washington state, and Washington, D.C., have green-lit recreational use of pot; 23 states allow some form of medicinal use. With more legalization initiatives on the 2016 ballot, many more states could follow suit later this year. CBD has anxiety-quelling, antibacterial, even cancer-killing properties.
Despite all the buzz, our understanding of cannabis and the ways it can benefit our skin, hair, and senses has been hazy at best…until now. Ahead, we call on dermatologists, cosmetic chemists, perfumers, botanists, even a couple of neuroscientists and psychopharmacology researchers to enlighten us on the age-old ingredient when it comes to makeup, fragrance, skin, and hair care.
Cancer docs feel unprepared, but recommend marijuana anyway – The Denver Post
SEATTLE – Nearly half of U.S. cancer doctors who responded to a survey say they’ve recently recommended medical marijuana to patients, although most say they don’t know enough about medicinal use. The results reflect how marijuana policy in some states has outpaced research, the study authors said. All 29 states with medical marijuana programs allow doctors to recommend it to cancer patients. Patients want to know what their doctors think about using marijuana.
In the new study, cancer doctors said their conversations about marijuana were almost always started by patients and their families, not by the doctors themselves. Overall, nearly eight in 10 cancer doctors reported having discussed marijuana with patients or their families, with 46 percent recommending it for pain and other cancer-related problems to at least one patient in the past year. Marijuana is considered an illegal drug by federal officials and federal restrictions have limited research. Last year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded the lack of scientific information about marijuana poses a risk to public health. There’s evidence marijuana can treat chronic pain in adults and medications similar to marijuana can ease nausea from chemotherapy.
In the study, 67 percent of cancer doctors said they view marijuana as a useful addition to standard pain therapies, with 75 percent saying it posed less risk of overdose than opioids. About half view marijuana as equal to, or more effective than, standard treatments for cancer-related nausea. Dr. Steven Pergam of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance answers questions about marijuana’s safety from his colleagues at the treatment center.

If their legislation passes, Delaware could clear past minor marijuana convictions from records for more than 1,000 people.
While still a significant reform, it often doesn’t address prior marijuana convictions and does little to reduce illicit sales. So with legalization in limbo, pro-cannabis lawmakers introduced a bill to expunge the criminal record of anyone with a minor marijuana conviction, which means that for more than 1,000 people, Delaware could clear past minor marijuana convictions from records. Minor marijuana convictions can come with major, long-term consequences. While the future of legal weed there is still unclear, clearing prior marijuana convictions is a major step toward progressive criminal justice reform.

YG Entertainment released an official statement regarding G-Dragon’s having been caught smoking marijuana. Last July, G-Dragon received investigation by the prosecutor’s office due to suspicion of smoking marijuana. G-Dragon confidently accepted the investigation because he had not smoked marijuana and went through with his schedule as usual. The first reason was because his test result was a weak positive, and the second was that G-Dragon had not deliberately smoked marijuana.
