Are Students Who Use Cannabis Putting College Funding at Risk?

Looking into a college dorm room may dig up some papers covered in red ink, discarded (and unread) textbooks, boxes of uneaten ramen, and mostly-eaten pizza. Likely, it will also turn up some form of paraphernalia. Maybe a pipe, a bong, some papers, or even an edible. In fact, marijuana-use is now at a 30-year high in college-aged youth. Still, many college students wonder, in states with recreational or medical weed, is it okay to use marijuana on university campuses?

In Massachusetts, recreational weed has been legalized and will soon be put into effect. But many college campuses in the state approach this heated dilemma differently. The question of whether or not colleges can ban weed on campuses in states with legal weed goes back to one major conflict. In the US, weed is still illegal federally. Because of this and because universities receive federal funding, many colleges maintain tight rules surrounding weed use. In Massachusetts where recreational legalization will soon go into effect, many schools want to govern the student weed-use on campus and off. Not initiating these

Marijuana for Insomnia: 7 Best Strains for Deeper Sleep

Sleep issues can be a real torture—when you experience a lack of rest your body and, more importantly, your mind are unable to function normally. This can have devastating effects on your general well being.

Before we explain how cannabis can be beneficial for alleviating insomnia, we’ll discuss insomnia in general and outline some of the main causes of sleeplessness.

What is insomnia?

Insomnia (otherwise known as sleeplessness) is a sleep disorder defined by either having difficulty falling asleep or difficulty remaining asleep.

The aftermath of insomnia usually includes daytime drowsiness, depressed mood, irritability, low energy levels, and a generally pessimistic and negative attitude.

The potential hazards of insomnia can include difficulties with learning and maintaining focus, and impaired motor skills which can lead to serious accidents.

Insomnia is associated with stress, chronic pain, heart disease, menopause, and can also be caused by excessive use of caffeine, alcohol and nicotine.

In Your Wildest Cannabis Dreams

Dreams, dreams, dreams. For many, we have a love/hate relationship with dreams. This seems to be especially true amongst the cannabis community. It seems that anyone who consumes cannabis either dreams all the time, or hardly ever at all. But how do cannabis and dreams coincide? To fully understand how cannabis may or may not […]

Turning the US-Canada cannabis border policy on its head

The United States Customs and Border Protection agency has updated its policy towards Canadian citizens engaged in the cannabis market, but it’s still full of double standards.

There are only five days left until recreational cannabis legalization goes into effect in Canada, and the United States Customs and Border Protection agency has changed its policy.

The previous version suggested that anyone related to the industry (including cannabis users) will not be allowed entry.

The new version is a bit more forgiving to regular citizens that have nothing to do with the industry, and even participating as a shopper will be OK.

However, if you are working for a Canadian cannabis company and your plan for visiting the US includes meeting people in the US and discussing business, you won’t be allowed to cross the border.

This new policy says that if you are coming to the US for anything related to cannabis, you’ll be denied entry:

“A Canadian citizen working in or facilitating the proliferation

Tantalus Labs’ Dan Sutton is what the weed industry needs

Tantalus Labs just might have one of the coolest people in the whole cannabis industry. I found this out by ‘roasting’ more than just their weed.

The other day I had the opportunity to talk to one of the most polarizing personalities of the cannabis industry — Tantalus Labs CEO Dan Sutton.

Dan is the type of guy to post selfies like this on his Twitter.

So far, everyone has heard stories of how cool Dan is, being in the weed business and all, but what I wanted to know is if this man is really that friendly and outgoing as he is presenting himself to be.

Let me stop you before you start spewing misconceptions about how this is just paid promotion—it’s not.

Dan and Tantalus Labs have been on my radar for quite a while, but now felt like the perfect time to reach out and find out .

Simply put, I was pleasantly surprised.

What the industry wants to know about Tantalus Labs

So far, Tantalus Labs has been pretty much flying under the radar when it …
