CBD for seniors: Here’s what you need to know

While “18 till I die” is a wonderful mantra to recite whenever you have one of those “age ain’t nothing but a number” moments, the truth is that the higher that number goes, the less you believe that mantra.

Are there side effects to consuming edibles?

The pot brownie has a reputation that often precedes it, being one of the most well-known marijuana edibles out there, but just like anything else, too much can be problematic and come with some side effects.

Edible marijuana treats, usually referred to in the shorthand “edible,” differ from smokable marijuana in not only how you consume it but the effects it brings. Edibles are often a good choice for someone who probably won’t do well smoking it and can be good for easing first-timers into their early highs.

Teen vaping on the rise in US, Canada

More American and Canadian teens are vaping than ever before, according to a new study, and researchers say the availability of e-cigarettes with more nicotine may partly explain the trend.

The study team examined data on smoking and vaping by youth in Canada, England and the U.S. and found that between 2017 and 2018, the proportion of 16- to 19-year-olds who reported vaping in the past 30 days rose by almost 50% in the U.S. and nearly doubled in Canada, while remaining relatively constant in the UK.

The proportion of teens who said they had vaped in the previous 30 days rose in Canada from 8.4% in July-August 2017 to 14.6 % in August-September 2018, and in the U.S. from 11.1% to 16.2% while remaining stable at just under 9% in the UK.
