1/n, Several people asked me about this headline, on a recent preprint claiming that #cannabis extracts high in #CBD have, "the potential of reducing [#coronavirus] infection by 70 to 80 percent.” Quite a claim. Let's briefly look at the study... Image
2/n, Remember, this a preprint, so hasn't been peer-reviewed and people are rushing to get #COVIDー19 related studies out ASAP. Let's briefly look at what they did and some results. Are the experiments/results compelling, or is this an absurd rush job (place your bets now!) ...
3/n, Basically, what they did was take cultures of human-derived cells (e.g. oral epithelial cells), put #cannabis extracts onto them, and ask if transcript (mRNA) or protein levels of ACE2 were impacted. ACE2 is an important protein #coronavirus uses to infect cells.

Now's a good time for consumer brands to consider white label arrangements to get their products out via diff. channels. New revenue stream when stores/restos are closed. Be it #food, #beverage or #cannabis, here are some thoughts on what goes into a white label / co-pack deal /1
Exclusivity – is the producer being appointed as the exclusive producer of this product? Exclusive producer of all products? Is the business big enough that the producer can’t produce any competitive products? /2
Sales – while one party is the brand owner and the other the producer, who is responsible for distribution, shipping logistics and sales? This takes on added weight if the product is a #cannabis one and there is an exclusive provincial wholesaler /3

Good Day 🌎! Are you ready for one of Gods🌿to be Federally Legalized? I have stood strong on this since #DJT announced he would run in 2015. Follow along for my thoughts and leave a comment below. Please retweet and lets help those who need it most. #WWG1WGA
2) Starting off we know the issues with his brother and #Alcohol which for most would lead them to believe he was completely against any and all substances. However I am lead to believe the exact opposite.
3) #Drugs and #Alcohol both are known to have horrible side effects that contribute to many of the horrible #sickness and #disease we know today. We have all long known the power of this 🌿. This leads me to a Poll, Lets keep you engaged!

Bin bestimmt nicht der erste, der das sagt: Mit der #Legalisierung von #Cannabis ist es eigentlich genau wie mit der Homo-Ehe: Es wird niemandem etwas genommen, aber vielen etwas gegeben. Studien aus den Niederlanden, Colorado, Kanada und jüngst aus Uruguay legen nahe, dass ...
... der Konsum bei Jugendlichen nicht steigt und nur bei bestimmten Altersgruppen von Erwachsenen Initial etwas zunimmt, weil einige es mal ausprobieren, aber mittelfristig wieder auf das Niveau aus Prohibitionszeiten zurückgeht. Gleichzeitig wird der Schwarzmarkt ...
... deutlich reduziert und somit dem organisierten Verbrechen und terroristischen Gruppen eine wichtige Einnahmequelle entzogen. Es gibt Jugend- und Verbraucherschutz und man kann auf ehrliche Weise Prävention angehen. Die Märkte von Cannabis und anderen ...

Weil mal wieder behauptet wird, der #Weedmob verharmlose das #Cannabis und würde die Risiken unterschlagen, ein paar Worte dazu:
Da ich seit meinem 15ten Lebensjahr mit wenigen Unterbrechungen konsumiere, sind mir die Höhen und Tiefen des Konsums sehr wohl bewusst.
Ja, es gibt Probleme, wenn Ungeübte KonsumentInnen #Weed mit hohem #THC Gehalt als Einstieg konsumieren, es gibt Probleme, wenn Leute im Rausch gestresst werden, durch Polizei, Eltern usw. es gibt Probleme mit fehlender Qualitätskontrolle und -sicherung, und der Jugendschutz,
wird durch das Verbot nicht gewährleistet.
Da die Forschung zu #Cannabis hierzulande seit vielen Jahren systematisch unterdrückt und behindert wird, gibt es kaum sicheres Wissen. Auch ein Problem.
Dies alles aber auf die Substanz zu schieben, halte ich für kurzsichtig, und

#Finland's lawmakers adopted the UN convention on drugs as-is in 1971. Harry Anslingers #racist legacy reached these northern shores one vote past the bar.

Ever since #Cannabis has been the #media evil, where #alcohol kills thousands yearly.

#cannabis #denial #doublestandard
#Finland's local media has been working hard lately.

The local papers in co-operation with associations like #YAD have been generating lot of articles on how #cannabis is somehow responsible for #polydrug-use, or #abuse of drugs among #young people.

#Alcohol never mentioned. 😅
Meanwhile, Statistics #Finland's numbers on kids reveal, that 44% of finnish 14 to 16 year-olds use #alcohol.

This is never mentioned in any of the papers writing #exploitation and #scare stories on #cannabis.

Neither are the other abused #drugs: rx #medication, #amphetamines.

@ken_eckerty I'm going to put a little thread together on $IGPK to explain where I see the value is in this stock.

I believe its undervalued on a fundamental level, which should become apparent after the S-1 goes effective.

@ken_eckerty $IGPK share structure:

$IGPK market cap is approximately $1.15M at $0.0010

$IGPK A/S is 1,200,000,000

$IGPK O/S is 1,153,317,059

So only 46,682,941 away from being maxed out.…

@ken_eckerty $IGPK was an SEC filer before becoming a non-reporting Pinksheet stock. On 02/12/2020 (almost two months ago) $IGPK filed an S-1 registration.

S-1's are typically highly dilutive, however here $IGPK is selling a maximum of 4,583,18 shares at $0.0015 for $7,103.93

An dieser Stelle nochmal ein Thread von mir zu den in manchen Medien massiv veröffentlichten "Berichten" und Artikeln zum Thema #Cannabis und Psychosen.
Mit der neuen Bundesdrogenbeauftragten, Frau @DaniLudwigMdB geht eine Welle von Artikeln und Reportagen einher,
@DaniLudwigMdB die die Behauptung aufstellen, Cannabiskonsum könne Psychosen auslösen, dafür erschreckende Beispiele finden und den hohen #THC Gehalt im sog. "Turbo Cannabis", welches in dubiosen Laboren von verrückten WissenschaftlerInnen designt wurde, verantwortlich machen.
Das Framing läuft wie folgt: da der #THC Gehalt im #Weed im Vergleich zu den 70ern um ein "Vielfaches" gestiegen ist, kann das "moderne" und "hochgezüchtete" Cannabis Psychosen auslösen, die besonders junge Menschen in Gefahr bringen.
Darum muss es verboten bleiben.

✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

1/ 🚨🚨🚨

Potter is an elected official who has access to millions of dollars - but as the @MontereyHerald reported - when @JoeLivernois & @Calkins_Royal were in charge - he wasn’t a great businessman.

But LH set up a trust to help him get his Casa in the CCBTS. Easy.


Now his job, when he isn’t performing his duties as Mayor of #Carmel, is lobbying for the billion dollar #marijuana business.

Convenient. Friends in #high places.

@mcgreevy99 has written extensively (@latimes) about the 420 industry and allegations of #publiccorruption

in #LosAngeles and #SantaBarbara county.

Health Canada has advised all federal license holders it’s temporarily adjusting its approach to administering/enforcing the #Cannabis Act & Regulations due to #COVID19 & its shift to teleworking. The changes will have major impacts which I will highlight in a series of Tweets /1
HC: License holders are encouraged to share any concerns; however, grouped responses to questions will be provided & not individual responses.

DH: My team is already collecting relevant questions from our clients & will submit en masse in hope of expedient response from HC. /2
HC: The temp adjustments to admin & enforcement of Cannabis Act/Regs will go 'til May 1/2020, at which time they'll be re-evaluated.

DH: Given current & projected realities I expect some type of modified approach to cannabis licensing & enforcement to continue past that date. /3

After he completely killed the National economy by creating co dependency on zombie companies he now wants to scavenge the remains of the dead. Even a vulture has the decency to only take his own fill. This guy is a gutless wonder.…
This is the findings of a blue ribbon panel report on the economics of Alberta. It's not like we didn't have experts on boards seeing the issues. What we have a a government that continually ignores the science that crosses the belief of their party fanaticism.
This was not reasonable. The hearing managers meeting by Darcie Harding for Enbridge Line 9. Duffy Diary showed Harper asking about Line 9 issues. No consultation here. He made NEB judge and jury analysing if consultation was reasonable. Used section 58 NEB repeatedly.

If you're in regulated #cannabis sector -- whether you're small, medium or large -- it's time to reach out to your elected reps. I've listed a number of areas where @GovCanHealth can assist this industry, as well as where we need help in terms of eco stimulus. #cdnpoli/1
Key steps #cdnpoli must take to help small, medium & large regulated #cannabis producers:

➡️Moratorium on paying 2.3% revenue share (confine to Q1, forgo rest of year revenue)
➡️ Temp lowering of excise taxes on cannabis
➡️ Access to all stimulus funding, incl through
Regulatory tweaks that @GovCanHealth can take to assist the regulated #cannabis sector ensure business continuity during #COVID19: /1 #cdnpoli

Übrigens, @DaniLudwigMdB, das ist der Grund, warum ich hier nicht locker lasse. Der Missstand ist die Strafverfolgung. Tun sie was dagegen, dann brauchen wir gar nicht diskutieren.

Die Polizei Stuttgart sagte mir, wenn eine ordentliche Menge an #Cannabis-Konsumenten zu 1/6
erwarten ist, dann buchten sie natürlich so viele wie möglich ein, auch wenn es eine Legalisierungs-Demo wäre. Das ist eine totalitäre Situation, in der wir hier gefangen sind. Einerseits wissen wir (im Gegensatz zu Ihnen), dass das vollst. Verbot von Cannabis, begründet mit 2/6
mit der Gefährlichkeit dieser Substanz, völliger Humbug ist und wir, die 5 Millionen, die Sie ignorieren, können trotz dieses Wissens nicht frei dagegen demonstrieren, weil wir die Repression fürchten.
Das ist, meine ich, sogar eine Menschenrechtsverletzung.
Die Polizei sagt 3/6

The Vermont House will, in a few minutes, take up final approval of the #cannabis legalization bill. You can stream live audio at vpr dot org #vtpoli
Four amendments have been offered today:
1) Requiring public disclosure of identity of all investors, instead of just controlling shareholders
2) Eliminating a subsidy of lab test fees for medical dispensaries
3) Banning advertisements
And 4) Allowing unconstitutional warrantless mandatory collection of saliva by police

Following a long line of articles from #TobaccoControl types who completely fail to 'get' #TobaccoHarmReduction, @LauraRossouw chimes in to prove she can misunderstand it up with the 'best'.
So let's look at a brief overview of the article..
Firstly, the title itself. Not only do #THR advocates support (sensible) regulation on #eCigarettes / #vaping, but there are, in most countries, a variety of legacy consumer protections that apply to them (e.g. standards for electrical goods or standards for labeling poisons).

Logica: perché mai lo Stato vuole legalizzare una cosa che fa DAVVERO bene alle persone e distrugge Big Pharma?

Quando mai lo Stato ha fatto qualcosa per il reale benessere delle persone?

The Victorian Government is the latest stakeholder to express concern about vaping, saying e-liquids are becoming increasingly more dangerous.
A torrent of #FUD on..
#vape #vaping #eLiquid #nicotine in #Victoria #Australia…
This title is deceptive in that it mentions #eLiquid but then goes on to discuss the components (concentrated #nicotine) used to MAKE e-liquid.
In a regulated, legal market there'd be no need for the latter to be in the homes of #Australians who want to #QuitSmoking via #vaping.
"Minister for Health .@JennyMikakos released data from the Victorian Poisons Information Centre that shows concentrations of #nicotine are getting stronger and the number of child poisonings from e-liquids are increasing."
Caps on maximum strength (in a regulated, legal market).

1/ #Cannsolve summit with Dr. Ian Mitchell, talking on “a tale of two drugs” aka #THC & #gabapentin
2/ #Gabapentin was made by Park Davis who also made #ketamine and #cocaine
3/ #NIDA only studies drug abuse. In the US #cannabis must come from NIDA. Therefore, we can see challenges in researching the #benefits of #cannabis in US

Let’s talk about the “oversupply” of Canadian #cannabis ... the central pillar of the bear case against the entire sector.

1. The true Canadian market is huge.

2. In the short-term, access to it is artificially constrained.

Canadian #cannabis “oversupply” caused by three things:

1. Slower than anticipated retail licensing by @GovCanHealth.

2. Competition with pre-existing black market.

3. LPs ramping up production to serve ENTIRE Canada+ market

To be clear, slow roll out of licensed retail by @GovCanHealth is NOT a conspiracy against #cannabis.

Rather, it is a classic example of government not being built to move at the speed of business.

Still, it is a bottleneck.
