  • Aphria invests in Scientus to tap Canadian MJ extracts market
    by Matt Lamers on August 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    Aphria is increasing its stake in the booming cannabinoid-based extracts market with an 11.5 million Canadian dollar ($9 million) investment in Scientus Pharma, a vertically integrated biopharmaceutical company. Toronto-based Scientus Pharma conducts research and product development related to medical cannabinoids and their derivatives. The investment is in the form of senior, secured convertible debt. Aphria (Toronto Stock Exchange: APH), based in Leamington, Ontario, said the investment also gives it access to Scientus’ so-called dealer’s license.

    By Bart Schaneman When Hawaii's two operational medical marijuana dispensaries were forced to close just days after opening, a laboratory bottleneck was blamed for a supply disruption. But participants in the fledgling MMJ program said the state's only functioning lab isn't at fault. Instead, they pointed to a number of other factors for their problems.

  • Judge invokes Rohrabacher-Farr in federal marijuana case
    by Kevin Huhn on August 15, 2017 at 11:37 pm

    At a time when the Department of Justice is trying to get Congress to pull the plug on the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, a U.S. District Court recently used the marijuana safeguard in a federal cannabis case. U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco told federal prosecutors they couldn’t continue proceedings against two cannabis cultivators in Humboldt County, California, because the growers were protected by the state’s MMJ laws, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The judgment is the “first known ruling of its kind,” according to the newspaper. The two Northern California growers were looking ...

  • Marijuana industry may be tiring of playing the ‘strain name game’
    by Omar Sacirbey on August 15, 2017 at 10:30 am

    By Omar Sacirbey Many marijuana businesses sell goods based on strain names, but those days could be coming to an end. More industry participants seemingly are starting to view strain names as unreliable indicators of a plant’s genetics and what types of cannabinoids are actually present in marijuana products. According to industry observers, maturing marijuana businesses and more sophisticated consumers are seeking more exacting information than popular strain names. Julianna Carella – CEO of Auntie Dolores edibles in Oakland, California – said she avoids strain names in deference to cannabinoid profiles. “We tend to shy away from ...
