Given the talented crop of actors in Hollywood who would excel in stoner comedy roles, fans should continue to hold out hope that major movie studios will eventually reinvest resources back into this genre.

Over the course of the past several years, the lack of cult classic stoner comedies like Superbad and The Hangover have become rarities. The lack of these types of comedies is surprising, and disappointing for many moviegoers especially considering the fact that 10 years ago this genre was a force.The Hangover II grossed $581 million in global ticket sales, on just an $80 million dollar budget. Unfortunately, the writing has been on the wall for stoner comedies for a while now. Here are just a few reasons why Hollywood left stoner comedies by the wayside.

Hemp milk is prepared by the combination of hemp plant seeds (Cannabis sativa) and water. Hemp milk and other similar foods prepared from hemp seeds does not create same effects like marijuana and only contain slight concentrations of the psychotropic compound tetrahydrocannabinol. Hence its demand as an alternative for cow’s milk in coffee, smoothies, and cereal is increasing. Hemp milk is made from just seeds and water, however, commercial products contain salt, sweeteners, and thickeners as well.

A groundbreaking event was held in Chili Wednesday on a new CBD and hemp processing plant.

The founders of Bad Drip CBD in Gates decided to branch out, and expand production. They say they are excited about this next phase, not only for their company but for people in the community. They say construction will be finished next May or June — bringing 45 new jobs to the area.

Awshad, a Delhi-based cannabis wellness startup, which recently began pan-India operations, is making a foray into the pet care segment, and has launched an oral oil for pets, the company said in a statement.  

Vijaya, a full spectrum oil for pets, which can be consumed orally or given to pets with their food, will help these animals suffering from ailments such as arthritis, anxiety, stress, digestive issues, chronic pain and cancer, the company said.   

Something smells funky in Florida's medical marijuana industry — and it's not coming from a smoldering joint.

Back in 2016, an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) secretly recorded Tallahassee developer J.T. Burnette — who has since married Kim Rivers, CEO of the multimillion-dollar Florida-based cannabis giant Truelieve — boasting that he and his childhood friend, then-Florida house member Halsey Beshears (R-Monticello), tweaked a cannabis bill signed into law in 2014 that governed the state's then-fledgling medical marijuana industry by cordoning off access to commercial licenses.

Its debut on the Canadian stock market signaled a new era for this vertically integrated seed to sale leader.

A lot of the air has been let out of the marijuana market's balloon since the heady, early days of the Canadian green rush. The legalization of cannabis in Canada failed to supercharge growth in the way that was expected, and the patchwork, state-by-state efforts in the U.S. still leave pot producers caught up in a limbo of regulation and taxation that undermines their potential.

Legalising cannabis could bring Germany annual tax revenues and cost savings of about 4.7 billion euros ($5.34 billion) and create 27,000 new jobs, a survey said on Tuesday as politicians thrash out rules for the budding sector.

Legalising cannabis could bring Germany annual tax revenues and cost savings of about 4.7 billion euros ($5.34 billion) and create 27,000 new jobs, a survey said on Tuesday as politicians thrash out rules for the budding sector. Chancellor-in-waiting Olaf Scholz and his centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) are in talks with the environmentalist, pro-spending Greens and the libertarian, business-friendly Free Democrats (FDP) to build a three-way coalition.

More than a decade ago, the seeds of a new industry were planted in the Grand Canyon State. Voters approved Proposition 203, which created Arizona’s medical marijuana program. The law allowed patients with qualifying conditions to purchase cannabis products from licensed dispensaries. To address demand for medical cannabis, the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) was given regulatory powers over the nascent sector. In the years since, a robust cannabis industry has grown in Arizona within the bounds of Prop 203.

In March 2021, Curaleaf Holdings, one of the largest cannabis companies in the United States, acquired EMMAC Life Sciences Group (now Curaleaf International), one of the largest vertically integrated companies in the European medical cannabis landscape.

Curaleaf International was created by combining EMMAC’s scientific approach with Curaleaf’s expertise from the consumer side.

Given his experience in the medical cannabis industry, Antonio Costanzo has noticed clear progress in the market. He also thinks European countries will allow the use of recreational cannabis in the next four years.

Here’s why Canadian cannabis stocks such as Canopy Growth and Auxly can help you beat the market in the future.

Investors who buy individual stocks aim to outpace the broader markets over a period of time. But doing so requires a ton of expertise, patience, and foresight to understand long-term trends. Canadian cannabis stocks touched record highs soon after marijuana was legalized in Canada at the federal level. But these companies have grossly underperformed the broader markets in the last three years.

As environmental disasters are increasing, we need to look to sustainable building, and hemp could be the answer.

Hemp could be the building material that accelerates the sustainable industry.

The year 2020 marked a devastating time period for myriad reasons. Among the pantheon of pain was the immense damage brought on by natural disasters. In early 2021, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its billion-dollar disaster report, calling 2021 a “historic year of extremes.” 

Trulieve Cannabis Corp.  (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF) announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as revenue increased 64% year-over-year to $224.1 million, beating estimates by $2 million. Trulieve also delivered a net income of $18.6 million, although the company did note that it was impacted by $16.4 million of one-time compensation and transaction costs primarily associated with the Harvest acquisition.

Trulieve reported earnings with a basic net income of $0.15 per share and diluted net income of $0.14 per share. This missed the Yahoo Finance average analyst estimates for earnings of $0.24.

Marijuana microbusinesses are a hot trend across the country, giving small businesses a better chance of breaking into the lucrative cannabis market.

The marijuana microbusiness is catching fire. Michigan issued its first microbusiness license to Sticky Bush Farms in September 2020. Officials in New Mexico, which has made offering opportunities to as many entrepreneurs as possible a key component of its legal marijuana industry, are considering new rules to allow the state to make loans available to single-location microbusinesses.

New York officials also made microbusinesses part of the state's legal recreational cannabis program. State officials have set a goal that half of all microbusiness licenses will go to social and economic equity candidates.

Cannabis earnings season is here, and there are some terms you should watch out for as they could signal trouble.

Many cannabis companies are reporting their quarterly results in November. And for investors, it can sometimes be difficult to interpret the numbers as cannabis earnings reports are often littered with adjustments and gains or losses, making it challenging to determine whether the company really had a good quarter.

But there are some ways you can quickly scan beyond just how the company did on its top and bottom lines to see whether there are any problems you need to be paying close attention to. Here are three words you don't want to see come up on an earnings report or call.

Hemp farmers, processors, policy experts and advocates convened again in hopes of sharing knowledge, resources, and camaraderie at this year’s Pennsylvania Hemp Summit, held virtually Nov. 2-4.

There were five virtual sessions spread over three days, starting with a basic overview of resources available for farmers, especially those who are new to the world of agriculture, of which there are more than you’d think. Hemp is proving to be a gateway crop for many young, entrepreneurial farmers.

Alyssa Collins, director of Penn State’s research farm in Lancaster County, opened with the magnitude of resources made available to farmers from land-grant universities and state Extension programs.

Governors across U.S. states and territories have penned a letter to congressional leaders, urging for cannabis banking access.

The governors of 24 states and U.S. territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Thursday calling on lawmakers to pass legislation that would permit financial institutions to provide banking services to the regulated cannabis industry. The letter from the bipartisan group of two dozen governors seeks passage of the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, which was approved by the House of Representatives in September as part of a comprehensive defense spending authorization bill.

Could positive Q4 earnings reverse Organigram's recent stock slide?

There's a bit of a conundrum occurring among cannabis companies this year. Quarterly revenue for some  U.S. multistate operators (MSOs) is coming in at record levels. On the Canadian front, New Brunswick-headquartered Organigram (NASDAQ:OGI), one of the leading producers  of indoor-grown cannabis and products made from it, posted double-digit revenue growth in its most recent quarter, alongside significant market share gains this year -- yet its shares have steadily sunk since February. Here's why that market disconnect might give investors a good opportunity to buy in.
