Don’t Puff-Puff-Pass on e.l.f.’s New Cannabis Skincare Line—It’s Legit

The beauty industry is on a major high and now, e.l.f. Cosmetics’ cannabis collection is joining the cipher. Everything from eyeshadow palettes to luxury moisturizers is being infused with varieties of cannabis sativa that have little or no THC content; hemp being the most popular. To some, the movement is nothing more than a gimmicky marketing tactic. However, ongoing studies are showing the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits of cannabinoids to the skin, making it a possible treatment for acne, eczema, dermatitis and more.

e.l.f. Cosmetics holds a special place in my heart as an affordable brand I can always count on to deliver quality while staying on top of the trends I want to try. The latest addition is the Hemp-Derived Cannabis collection featuring four new skincare and skin prep products, all of which are infused with hemp seed oil. Admittedly, my current routine is hella strict, but I couldn’t pass on this one, especially since most cannabis-infused skincare products are pricy.

10 Reasons It’s Way Too Soon to Give Up on Aurora Cannabis

The Canadian cannabis producer had a dismal Q1. But don’t throw in the towel on Aurora yet.

You might be ready to abandon hope for Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB). That’s understandable after the company’s ugly fiscal 2020 first-quarter results.

The Canadian cannabis producer’s revenue is falling. Its bottom line is deteriorating. Don’t let seemingly positive net income resulting from accounting for derivative liabilities fool you on that front. Aurora continues to burn through its cash.

Aurora’s path to success might seem next to impossible, but it’s way too soon to give up on the company. Here are 10 reasons why.

Hexo Admits Cannabis Was Grown in Unlicensed Part of Niagara Facility

Producer notified Health Canada instantly, which was satisfied with its corrective actions.

Quebec licensed producer Hexo Corp. has admitted to growing cannabis in an unlicensed area of its Niagara facility — one that was acquired by the company from Newstrike Brands in May 2019.

According to a press release put out by the company Friday evening, a section of the UP Cannabis cultivation facility in Niagara, called Block B, which belonged to Newstrike, was not adequately licensed to grow cannabis but had been used to grow pot nonetheless.

Hexo said that on July 30, shortly after the acquisition closed, Hexo discovered the unlicensed growing and immediately ceased cultivation and production activities in the unlicensed space. The company said it notified Health Canada instantly and the department was satisfied with Hexo’s corrective actions.

Thailand Will Soon Allow Its Citizens To Grow Cannabis At Home To Sell To The Government.

Thailand is ramping up medical marijuana legalization efforts that will soon allow all Thais to cultivate six cannabis plants in their homes and sell their home-grown harvest to the government, to turn into medical marijuana.

“We are in the process of changing laws to allow the medical use of marijuana freely,” said recently-appointed Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, in Bangkok on Wednesday. “We have high confidence that marijuana will be among the major agricultural products for Thai households. We are speeding up the law changes. But there is a process to it.”

Back in September, Anutin alluded, “In the near future, families will be able to plant cannabis trees in their back gardens like any other herb.”

Apple Removes and Bans All Vaping-Related Apps From iOS Store

Hopefully, no one was planning on hitting up the iOS store this weekend to download an app for their vaporizer. Apple has announced that it has removed all vaping-related applications from the platform, though you’ll still be able to use yours or download it again if it’s already on your phone.

The move is in reaction to a vaping-related health crisis that has seen thousands of cases of severe lung injury that appear to be tied to vaporizers. Across the U.S. and Canada, state and local governments have taken steps to curtail access to certain kinds of vaping products, which were already under fire due to soaring rates of teen vaping.

Apple has never allowed apps that facilitate the sale of vaporizer cartridges on its platform, but until this summer, it did host applications that controlled users’ vape product features like their temperature, as well as others that included vape-related content. The company ceased allowing new apps in these categories, however, in June.

The current ban affected 181 apps, which were removed from the iOS Store on Friday morning.

Cheshire Man Admits to Buying Cannabis for Terminally Ill Brother

A Cheshire businessman has admitted to buying cannabis and turning it into what he claims was a painkilling oil to help his terminally ill brother, in an attempt to highlight “the stupidity and cruelty” of drug prohibition.

Ben Findlay has told the Guardian he spent up to £5,000 obtaining the drug from criminals earlier this year. He then turned his garage into a makeshift laboratory to convert the cannabis into a medicinal mix that his brother Eric, who had cancer, ingested in the weeks before his death.

Findlay, a 36-year-old entrepreneur, said he was willing to face prosecution over buying and “cooking” the cannabis as an alternative to morphine.

A cannabis extraction plant is slated to open in central Edmonton as edible products continue to work their way into the legal marketplace.
