Welcome to our first weekly news round from the world of cannabis, collated and brought to you from Gary Eff at Discount Cannabis Seeds.

Let’s begin at week one with a story from Hawaii!

HAWAII Decriminalises Cannabis

Hawaii - Discount Cannabis Seeds

Hawaii has decriminalised Cannabis, but before you go over and start taking advantage of the new law, be aware there are conditions, as reported by Sara Brittany Somerset in Forbes Magazine.

You may possess up to 3 grams but any more than this and you will still be subject to a $130 dollar fine. As ever, nothing is ever straightforward in the Cannabis legalisation world but it’s great to see things moving in this direction.

Jay-Z - Discount Cannabis Seeds

This report via the Associated Press on the Leafly website covers Jay-Z’s move into Cannabis, following in the footsteps of other famous people, such as Mike Tyson.

Jay Z will become a brand strategist and will go in with the intent of increasing the economic participation of people returning from incarceration.

From our point of view here at Discount Cannabis Seeds, it can only be a good thing having high profile people come into the industry clearing a way forward for other territories to change suit and welcome Cannabis use into their society for both medical and recreational purposes.

Can Cannabis Treat Anxiety

Cannabis and Anxiety - Discount Cannabis Seeds

This piece from The Guardian looks at Cannabis and anxiety. As we know Cannabis has very many great medical uses so this story explores that when it comes to anxiety.

As the writer alludes to, it’s a very complicated subject matter and at this stage, there are so many variables and lack of proper testing that it’s hard to tell.

There are variables when it comes to THC and CBD content, so it’s imperative to get this right to focus on the area you want to fix.



Baker confuses a request for Moana birthday Cake, with Marijuana

In true news style, we finish this weeks roundup off with a ‘piece’ of fun. This story was cooked up (it is real, I’m just trying to fit in some puns) by the New York Times. 

A 25-year-old Mum was looking for a cake made for her daughters birthday. She asked the cake maker to do something with Disney Character, Moana, but they misheard this and thought she said marijuana! 

This is the result…
