Is Raw Cannabis Beneficial and How Does it Work?

In recent years, a lot of people have been advocating the use of raw cannabis for medicinal purposes on the premise that the active chemical compounds in the raw plant have unique health benefits.

Smoking, vaping, edibles, topicals and high-concentrated oils like RSO all incorporate the process of decarboxylation, which is achieved by applying heat to plant material.

By raising the temperature, the compounds from cannabis lose an atom of carbon, and because of this they are able to “fit” into CB1 and CB2 cellular receptors of the endocannabinoid system in our brain and body.

This is why no perceptible mental change occurs when we eat a fresh, raw bud, as our stomach doesn’t produce enough heat for the carbon atom to separate from cannabinoid molecules.

Because of this, THC cannot bind the receptors in our brain (CB1) in charge of producing the psychoactive “high” unique to cannabis.

Even though research is very scarce when it comes to raw cannabis, it seems that cannabinoids in their acidic form (with that additional atom of carbon) use a different pathway to …

The retail rollout is delayed again and online stores are underperforming

Latest reports are saying that several of the first 25 retail stores granted licenses to sell cannabis in Ontario will not be opening on April 1st.

It’s been more than 5 months since recreational cannabis has been legalized in Canada, and some provinces are still not on the money making track.

Ontario is still fiercely struggling to make anything happen on that front as the retail rollout date (April 1st) is just a few days away.

Several store owners who won the Ontario license lottery announced they won’t be ready to open their stores on April 1st.

Aside from having issues with the rollout of brick-and-mortar stores, Ontario’s online cannabis sales platform—the OCS—has been plagued with issues such as shortages, infested shipments, and more.

Late to open

Winners of the Ontario cannabis license lottery were announced in mid-January. Applicants were warned that if they aren’t able to fill out their duties and open stores by April 1st they risk getting fined and ultimately losing their license.

Now that …
