Critics of the massive 4/20 celebrations in Vancouver are being blunt: organizers need to start paying their own way.
That’s after a leaked memo from Vancouver city staff to council showed the last two pro-marijuana bashes held at Sunset Beach cost taxpayers more than $583,000.
The memo, which was sent on July 13, 2018, breaks down the costs incurred by the city, the Vancouver Park Board, and the Vancouver Police Department in 2017 and 2018 before, during and after the unsanctioned event, which is set to return to Sunset Beach this April despite the city’s objections.

The lion’s share of those costs went to policing: $127,245 was spent in 2017, while the following year the...
When you see our list of strains on HighClub or visit the Leafly Strain Database, you'll quickly realize that there's a treasure trove of strains available out there.
But what goes into strains, hybrids, crosses or backcrosses? All these are part of plant breeding, which basically involves the breeding of a male and female plant to bolster their genetics.
When we breed two strains, we get hybrid strains.
When cannabis breeders embark on combining strains, their main mission is to strengthen or purify strains or to combine the traits of strains.
They also do this to enhance aroma potency, or to increase yields among many other reasons.
Before growing and breeding cannabis, you first need to know the origin of your seeds and what they were crossed with. If seed sellers can't give you with the genetic information of the...
For many years, I made cannabis edibles at home. Even if I made several mistakes along the way, I was able to create a final outcome that was good enough to do the job. Little did I know that I could improve my edibles massively if I made a few tweaks to the preparation process. While this improved the flavour and consistency of the product, it also saved me lots of time and money. All I needed to do was to listen to a real pro.
A few months ago, I attended a cooking class dubbed, "puff, pass and bake," led by chef Torrin Panico. He was instrumental in teaching us how to cook cannabis oil, showing us the missteps that most people make along the way. Once I understood how decarboxylation and infusion work, I...
With a breathalyzer, it's pretty easy to measure how much alcohol a person has consumed in a day. This is not the case with marijuana.
According to a new op-ed, it's incredibly tricky to determine how much weed a person has consumed at any given time. It can be equally complex to figure out at what point a stoner has consumed so much that he's impaired to drive.
With Canada legalizing weed and the United States looking like it's going to follow suit, activists are increasingly calling for the introduction of roadside tests that would be similar to those of alcohol Breathalyzers in order to measure if someone is too impaired to drive. They are also calling on authorities to set up a legal marijuana limit, similar to that of alcohol.
However, according to a paper that was...
The Essential Guide to Microdosing Marijuana
Every cannabis smoker will never forget the first time they blacked out. It usually starts with a friend leaving you too much weed to smoke. As a newbie, you don't even know your ideal dosage so you end up getting thoroughly stoned.
In my personal experience, a friend left me a thick joint, which got the best of me. Because of my delayed THC high, I got very stoned after some time. It's not a surprise that this is what most newbies go through as they learn the ropes of consuming weed. This phenomenon is so common that an idiom has been made just to explain it. "Maureen Dowd-ed" was essentially coined after an inexperienced columnist had far too much of an edible helping. She then lay paralyzed on a hotel...
With the exception of the few countries, like Canada and parts of the US, weed is still an illegal substance in many places around the world.
Since it has been in existence for such a long time, and most people consume it regardless of whether or not it’s legal, there's a lot of confusion around weed and a lot of misinformation that has been spread around.
It's no surprise that while most people see it as a miracle drug, others still view it as a demon drug.
While both sides have a voice in the debate, it’s important to look at some of the biggest pieces of misinformation out there. This way we can avoid confusion about subjects that people would, otherwise, believe to be true.
Here are ten lies about Marijuana that seem to be true but are...

Experts Say Cannabis Industry Helped Lower Canada’s Unemployment Rate
Has the legalization of weed created jobs in Canada?
With the weed industry’s continued growth, it’s no surprise that Canada is starting to feel its positive side effects. According to new figures from Canada, unemployment rates have gone down in the last month after the legalization of weed.
Data published by Statistics Canada showed that unemployment in Canada fell by 0.2% in November alone.
This means that the country’s current unemployment figure stands at 5.6%.
This is notably the lowest unemployment since 1976, which is the first year such data was gathered.
According to the report, six Canadian provinces had improved in numbers related to unemployment. Moreover, the private sector had seen the most growth within the same period, while the public sector figures remained largely the same, mirroring the number of self-employment jobs.
According to the latest...
Full spectrum extracts: Everything you need to know
