Show Notes

It's odd that in every other province (Quebec government is appealing the case they lost) except Manitoba you can grow up to four cannabis plants per household. One man, followed by a growing list of supporters is hoping to change that. Jesse Lavoie is launching a constitutional challenge against the law banning recreational growing, which comes with a fine of more than $2,500. Jesse explained the reasons why home growing isn't allowed (hint, they don't make sense as you are allowed to grow for medicinal purposes) and where he's at with the challenge. He also works for Storz & Bickel and gave a great tip for Volcano users. David Wylie of the oz and I dissected the latest stories on This Week in Cannabis News where the restructuring continues at Aurora, some are trying to make medicinal cannabis easier to understand, a legal retail store owner is walking back her comments about the illicit market and we discuss products we love right now. Chris Ianson is our Educator and he's also the Manager of the Nova Cannabis Jasper Avenue location and we explored North 40 Colada from Farmstead in What's That Strain?!?! This stuff looked beautiful, from the greens to orange and purple flecks and it tastes as fruity and sweet as it sounds. There is some hypocrisy going on with the name though, you aren't allowed to call it Pina Colada which is what the strain really is, but White Russian is allowed? Anyway, it's grown using Aeorponics - another new term to learn - and it's grown well. Malka Labell of The Green Generation Co Brough the goods on The Business of Cannabis where we wondered why more Canadians and politicians aren't getting on the cannabis train when it comes to boosting the economy and creating jobs? Our Cannabis Question is about what your go to munchies are, the Cannabis Character is Melanie Ralston from Jackie Brown and I explored the term Viper in Weed Word of the Day!!
