Cannabis edibles likely available in time for Christmas

by Spiro Papuckoski - Toronto Sun

June 15, 2019

 

Excerpt:

Canadians could be opening a new gift under their Christmas trees this year that could literally give them a high.

The market for cannabis-infused products is expanding with the addition of edibles, drinks, extracts and topicals, which are tentatively set to be available at the Ontario Cannabis Store and licensed retailers no earlier than Dec. 17.

Just over a week before Santa Claus comes sliding down your chimney.

The Liberal government has set Oct. 17 – a year since pot legalization and four days before the federal election – as the date when all regulations for the production and sale of edible cannabis products, extracts and topicals will come into effect, Health Canada announced Friday.

Heath Canada is requiring federal licence holders to provide a 60-day notice of their intent to sell new products once the new regulations take effect, meaning consumers can start purchasing everyday items infused with cannabis as early as mid-December.

****

For Rae-Ann Gammon, who created and sells her own line of cannabis-infused products from her Toronto home, the regulations governing the amount of cannabis per product (10 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol) is very restrictive.

“People don’t want to eat 30 chocolates to get their medicine,” Gammon said, referring to people requiring higher doses of THC to alleviate their health issues. “They are not making it easy for people.”

She can see why the government is leaning toward food like brownies and staying away from candy-like products that could end up in the wrong hands.

Santa's going to have to be careful which cookies he eats when he's making deliveries to Canada on Christmas Eve.

There is a lot of research that is showing incredible benefit with use of the CBD oil - helping children with epileptic seizures and adults with Parkinsons tremors - but sadly too many are claiming need of those benefits and going for the cannabis (CBD and THC) to get the psychadellic effect - it creates a whole other level of issue - people end up feeling they need the "high" to get the benefit of the CBD and it gets abused very quickly 

now the issue is that the cheaper brands of CBD are not filtered and they are not purging the THC so you still have the issue of the psychadelic - without good regulation (which there is not) I fear  you are going to see a lot of "legitimized" abuse very quickly . . .

That's a given, I sure saw this coming. And the revenue generated as well. Something that can benefit some patients, with abuse going two ways. The "high" and the "high dollar".

My wife has MS and my daughter has Tourette's. Both have seen benefits with it.

my company carries the Hemp from BlueBird - but I am sure there are other good brands out there - we did a lot of research and consulted with several nutritionists before we went with that brand - you can get cheaper, but I know this is pure and doesn't have the THC in it.....

I've thought about giving the CBD oil a try.  I honestly haven't done much research but there must be something positive.  I had to quite alcohol almost six years ago because I had an easy time starting but a terrible time stopping.  So, I'm more than a bit cautious about CBD and cannabis products for myself.  I am, however, all for its use by folks with conditions that get help or relief.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
