cooking

The latest trend in hemp? Cooking with it. Yes, really.

Introducing hemp into your culinary repertoire can add unexpected flavor, and possibly even a few health benefits, to your favorite dishes.

You can consume it either in seed or oil form, and it’s also processed into flour, protein powder and other ingredients that can easily be incorporated into recipes.

Here are a few suggestions on how to liven up your cooking with hemp.

Cannabis And Inflammation — What’s The Connection?

holding back in pain

Cannabis works wonders for chronic inflammation but we are just now understanding why.

Regardless of how anyone feels about inflammation or the amount of pain it comes with, it remains an unavoidable healthy response that keeps us alive. From bruising a finger to the after-effects of cancer treatments, inflammation is the body's automatic response to every physical condition. There are times when inflammation could lead to extreme pain and adverse conditions due to a dysfunctional effect on the immune system. At this point, drugs are needed to reduce the pain and hasten to heal.

This is why two-gram vapes are becoming the new industry standard

Delta Munchies

Why get a one-gram delta-8 vape when you can get two-gram vapes for only a little higher cost? Pro tip: Get the bigger gram size.

As the hemp and cannabis industry’s progress in legalization has rapidly developed across America, its products and supply chain as a whole has swiftly followed suit. This is due to the blossoming of the Green Rush in 2012, which brought new laws and a massive bloom to the industry, enabling more research into our favorite flower and other alternative cannabinoids like delta-8 THC.

3 intriguing stocks that are screaming buys in January

money

As the legal marijuana industry gains steam, Trulieve Cannabis, Columbia Care, and GrowGeneration are well-positioned for success.

It started as a small medical cannabis company in Florida. Now, it's the dominant player in its home state, where it operates 112 dispensaries. Staying focused on its core market helped the company grow its revenue and profits without overburdening its balance sheet. This strategy will also give it a competitive moat once Florida legalizes adult-use recreational cannabis, which experts predict could happen this year.

Meanwhile, Trulieve has slowly expanded into new markets; it now operates 159 stores nationally.

It’s Time To Acknowledge The Reality Of THC In Pro Sports

football player

Maintaining the fiction that professional sports are THC-free is just an act of denial that we can no longer afford.

Drug testing for THC in professional sports is almost dead, as it should be — but not quite. It still lurks in the corners like a zombie, ready to attack anyone who points at it. The NBA has ended random drug testing, but it still has a policy in place for testing players “for cause,” which keeps those players from advocating for the full elimination of drug testing in the league.

Investing In Marijuana Stocks Right Now Could Be The Thing To Do In 2022

Some marijuana stocks are starting to see a slight increase in trading. Now, this is based on the recent momentum since the start of the new year. This past year the sector was faced with a lack of upward consistency. Mainly due to federal cannabis reform failing to pass. When that happened many thought the sector would not reach its full potential. Yet on a state level, many pure-play and MSO cannabis companies were able to flourish. With that form of progress, it was all outside of the market. Yet with fear and caution for those invested this outside progress did very little inside of the market. Right now in the sector, there are more volatile spikes.

Down 15%, Is Innovative Industrial Properties a Buy?

business section

The company is by far the most significant REIT specializing in the marijuana industry.

The marijuana industry is not currently popular with investors, to put it mildly. That's having a knock-on effect with cannabis real estate investment trust (REIT) Innovative Industrial Properties. Despite being a consistently profitable company that doesn't actually grow or sell any weed itself, Innovative is being punished like its peers; its share price is down by over 15% so far this young year. A submerged stock price doesn't necessarily mean a company is a bargain, however. Let's explore whether Innovative stock is a good buy or a dangerous falling knife investors should avoid.
