Nov. 8, 2017, Simcoe, Ont. – The digital version Grow Opportunity is now available online.

It is definitely an understatement to say that cannabis production and processing is on the rise in Canada. Alongside this increased interest comes the development and dissemination of many myths surrounding its cultivation. (Mainly borne out of people thinking they have secret recipes to grow bigger buds with strong THC, CBD and turpentine contents.)
Similar to other industries, how cannabis is produced and processed has evolved over time — and it will only continue to evolve as new companies join the elite group of licence producers in Canada that already exists.
It is often assumed in the cannabis industry that greenhouse production, rather than indoor production, will become the norm, especially since costs can be substantially reduced by using the “free power of the sun.”
Oct. 31, 2017 - I hear from clients daily, “these pesticides are just not working like they used to.” It is true, pesticides are not working as well any more. Even when the pesticides were working well, not all the pests were killed despite good coverage and dead bugs on the leaves.

Oct. 23, 2016, Jupiter, FL – In a discovery that advances the understanding of how marijuana works in the human body, an international group of scientists, including those from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), have for the first time created a three-dimensional atomic-level image of the molecular structure activated by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active chemical in marijuana.
Sept. 16, 2016, Smiths Falls, Ont. – Tweed Inc.,  a wholly owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation, has launched ‘Lemon Skunk’ in the Tweed store.
Aug. 22, 2016, Ancaster, Ont. – The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd. is now a Licensed Producer under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).
McMaster University in Hamilton and St. Joseph Healthcare Hamilton have teamed up to launch a new multidisciplinary research centre dedicated to cannabis research.
Over the past five years, Canadian businesses have seen the threat of hacktivism, cyber extortion and the incidences of data breaches grow exponentially. No industry is immune to these threats, not even license producers of cannabis across Canada.
April 13, 2017 feels like yesterday. That of course was the day that the Government of Canada introduced Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, into the House of Commons for its first reading.
There is no doubt that the Federal Government of Canada’s decision to legalize recreational use of cannabis has opened up huge opportunities for licensed producers across the country.

Dec. 20, 2016 – The Canadian government has released the November 2016 report that was filed in Ottawa by the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation. This report contains the findings and official recommendations of the task force for establishing legal cannabis across Canada.
Dec. 14, 2016, Smiths Falls, Ont. – There are many positives for the horticulture industry in the recently released federal Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation report, according to one industry leader.

Canadians are simply experiencing legalization through a “parliamentary” process, rather than through an electoral ballot process, like in the U.S.
Not a day goes by without the topic of cannabis making headlines across Canada.
