Stats Canada Released a Report About Home Cannabis Cultivation In Canada

StratCann

Those most likely to do so are male, 35-55 years of age, and living in Atlantic Canada, followed by British Columbia and Ontario. Reported home cultivation was the least common in the Prairies. Home cultivation is not allowed in Manitoba and Quebec. Both provinces are facing court challenges to this prohibition.

Although men were more likely to cultivate cannabis at home, the number of women who reported doing so increased since legalization. The number of Canadian men over the age of 55 who reported growing their own cannabis at home actually declined since legalization. 

Home cultivators are more likely to consume cannabis for medical (or a combination of medical and non-medical) reasons on a daily or almost daily basis and report “smoking” as their primary consumption method. 

Canadian Government to Review The Cannabis Act After 4 Years of Legalization

Reuters

OTTAWA, Sept 22 (Reuters) – Canada on Thursday launched a review of the country’s legalization of recreational cannabis use four years ago to evaluate its impact on youth, indigenous minorities and others, and analyze its effect on the economy and the illegal marijuana market.

Canada’s health minister was required to conduct a review of the legislation, its administration, and operation three years after coming into force, so the review is coming a year later than had been planned.

Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said it took longer than expected to begin the review because the government wanted to “make sure things were done right” and plan a review broader than what is mandated by law.

Global News

Elias Theodorou, a Canadian mixed martial artist who campaigned successfully for the right to use medical marijuana as an athlete, has died. He was 34.

Theodorou campaigned for years to use medical marijuana in the sport, eventually securing a therapeutic use exemption for the marijuana he had been prescribed for bilateral neuropathic pain in his hands, wrists and elbows.

Theodorou, who said cannabis allowed him “to even the playing field and fight at a baseline level,” got the exemption in February 2020 from the B.C. Athletic Commission.

How to properly clean your binoculars

Proper cleaning of your Uscamel binoculars guarantees that you will enjoy them for a long time. What many people don’t know is that mechanical abrasion can damage the optical surfaces if they are cleaned incorrectly. This is quickly reflected in the image quality. In this blog post we give you tips for correct cleaning.

Deposits

Over time, a thin film of grease builds up on the lenses of the binoculars, for example when you touch them with your fingertips. This alone does not damage the optical surfaces. However, a microscopic layer of crystalline dust usually settles on this lubricating film, which is invisible to the naked eye. If you now try to remove the greasy film from the optical surfaces using a cloth, the circular movements will have a similar effect to sandpaper on the tempered surfaces of the binoculars.

The coating guarantees that as much of the light hitting the glass as possible reaches your eye – and is not reflected and thus “lost”, so to speak. The multiple layers of coating are wafer-thin. Repeated improper cleaning can damage them and permanently affect your viewing pleasure. Scratches caused by mechanical abrasion cannot be “polished out”. In the worst case, you have to replace the affected components at great expense.

What is the best way to clean deposits from your binoculars?

To clean, first use a fine brush, the bristles must not be too coarse, and use it to dust the surfaces thoroughly. Once the surfaces have been freed from the layer of dust, a microfiber cloth is used. Breathe on the surfaces lightly and then wipe them off with the cloth. Do this carefully and avoid circular movements. It is best to keep the cleaning cloth in a dust-proof bag to avoid dust here as well.

Fungal Infection

Fungal infestation inside the binoculars is usually impossible with high-quality, nitrogen-filled and waterproof models. However, if the binoculars are not stored properly, fungus can form on the outside of the optics. Particularly warm room temperatures and deposited layers of dirt and fat give fungi a good basis for thriving. Therefore, keep the binoculars in an airy place and clean them thoroughly before not using them for a long period of time.

To allow the film of moisture on which the fungus has spread to evaporate, you can expose the binoculars to direct sunlight for a while. Then clean the optical surfaces with water, glasses cleaning agent and a microfibre cloth.

What are General Binocular Care Tips?

Finally, it should be said that binoculars are of course not made to lie in a showcase with a polished finish. Dirt is sometimes unavoidable, especially on long hikes. They are also not a concern if you clean your binoculars gently. For a crystal-clear view at all times, please note the following tips:

Touch the lens openings of your binoculars as little as possible.
After each observation, replace the protective covers.
To remove deposits, use a fine-bristled brush.
Microfibre cloths remove grease and water stains (you can also use eyeglass cleaner if necessary).
Store the binoculars in an airy, not too warm place.
Thoroughly clean your binoculars before long periods of non-use.

Do you still have questions about the care of your binoculars? At an Eschenbach specialist dealer near you, you will receive personal and professional advice. We are looking forward to your visit!

The British Columbia General Employees’ Union (BCGEU) is entering their 2nd week of Job Action as the organization that represents over 33,000 workers across the province of British Columbia.

With a strike beginning early last week, many workers are classified as “essential” and don’t have an option to walk off the job. But they are being called upon to refuse overtime hours to convey the message of understaffing, high turnover and excessive workloads relying on voluntary overtime hours to complete the jobs in positions lacking staff.

How does this play into Western Canadian cannabis? Well in British Columbia, the BCGEU represents the only legal facility that plays an intermediary between producers and dispensaries, distributing wholesale from cultivars to retail shelves across the province of British Columbia.

According to the High Times, regulators are in talks to simplify the process allowing producers to sell directly to dispensaries; however until this is settled, the province of British Columbia is likely to see inventory levels dwindle and storefronts to close shop until products are available to order.

Marigold Cannabis in Vancouver reports they have a window of 2 weeks for the strike to settle. “If it lasts more than two weeks, then we are probably looking at closing down the store because there is nothing to sell,” reported Jacob Michalow, Assistant Manager.

In response to the pending closures and cannabis shortages within the province, cannabis delivery sites and mail order services across Western Canada are offering massive deals to recapture some of the market that is currently fumbling an opportunity to build loyal customers.

We spoke to the marketing team at one Calgary Weed Delivery service – Supherbs. “We’re extending our free delivery across the province of British Columbia throughout the duration of the BCGEU strike. While we like to think a lot of cannabis consumption is for enjoyment, there’s a large number of patients in the province that use cannabis for it’s medical properties and a quick, safe and cost effective avenue to get medicine is important to our team. We want to set an example for reliability where others are dropping the ball so to speak”.

When it comes to budder and shatter, what are the differences? Which is better? While budder and shatter share some commonalities, there are differences that we will identify here.

This post will be beneficial for those new to dabbing. We hope it will provide some deeper insights to those who order shatter online in Canada and those who buy budder online.

Let’s take a closer look. To help you choose the perfect dab, we will determine the following:

  • Is budder stronger than shatter?
  • How do budder and shatter differ from each other?
  • What to consider to make an informed decision

Is Budder Stronger Than Shatter?

Budder and shatter are both cannabis concentrates. While many will say that shatter is more potent than budder, both have been tested in labs. Both have been measured as high as 80–90 percent potency.

Because of its consistency, budder tends to be less stable than shatter. As a result, it does not hold its potency for as long as other concentrates. Many people like to order shatter online for this reason, as shatter will maintain its potency for a longer period.

Shatter has a reputation of being stronger than budder. If you purchase a high-quality product and plan to use it within a short period, choose the one you prefer. Dabs are named as such because a “dab will do you!” Both deliver a fast, potent high. 

 

Cannabis 101: How To Consume Concentrates

Concentrates are most often vaporized in a dab rig. If you prefer not to dab, you can also consume in the following alternate ways.

  • Budder: spread like butter onto a rolling paper and smoke in a joint
  • Shatter: vape or crumbled into a joint

How Do Budder and Shatter Differ from Each Other?

Both budder and shatter are butane hash oil (BHO) extracts of about 80 percent potency. Butane is used to extract the trichomes containing terpenes and cannabinoids from the dried cannabis. Budder is sometimes created using CO2.

budder

Shatter is a thin, hardened concentrate similar in appearance to clear amber or gold-coloured glass, taffy, or sap. People often assume that shatter is more potent than budder.

There are, however, differing qualities of both concentrates available.

Budder has an oily, creamy, whipped consistency. The texture results from how it is processed and agitated, resulting in a fluffy amber to cream-coloured concentrate. While it does not hold its potency for as long as shatter, many people find it is easier to use. 

What to Watch For When You Order Shatter and Budder Online in Canada

When you receive your online shatter order, check the aroma. A stronger-smelling shatter can indicate a high-quality product.

Colour is another indicator of quality. When you buy budder online, darker colour or hints of green show a lack of purity. This could be residue or remaining solvent, and the green could be from the chlorophyll from dried flower.

Shatter that is darker in colour may be tainted. Some cannoisseurs suggest keeping a piece of shatter you don’t like as a point of reference as you learn what you do and don’t enjoy. In time, you will discover your preferences.

Discretion is another point to consider. A dab rig is not discreet. While concentrates have less odour than flower, they do have some scent.

Which is Stronger: Budder or Shatter?

If texture matters, budder will be easier to use. If you desire a longer shelf-life, shatter is the better option. It seems that both have a similar potency, so it is a matter of personal preference.

Using snippets to increase your organic rankings is a great way to attract more patients. Those snippets are the search results that are shown before the link, and they’re a little bit more relevant than the other results, which means that your website will get a higher chance of showing up there. Adding FAQ sections or FAQ pages to your site will also help draw in more potential patients. And remember that metadata can make a huge difference in your SEO.

Investing in these strategies will give your dental practice better organic rankings in search engines and increase patient traffic. With the right focus, dental SEO can make your website visible to more people in your local community.

Dental SEO strategy

A dental SEO strategy should focus on long- and short-tail keywords. Short-tail keywords tend to cover broad topics, while long-tail keywords tend to be more specific and higher-quality. However, it is important to remember that the longer the term, the higher its conversion rate. It is crucial to make your dental website optimized for SEO for Dentists. With these methods, you will get top results and increase the number of new patients.

Increase your organic ranking

A website with good SEO is more likely to attract more patients. It is important to remember that Google’s ranking system is very complicated, so you should hire a specialist to do the job for you.

Sites for long-tail keywords

 

When it comes to SEO, dentists should focus on long- and short-tail keywords. A dentist should use long-tail keywords instead of short-tail keywords. This is because the latter is more specific. In addition, it is better for SEO for Dentists to optimize their sites for long-tail keywords. The right keyword will be more profitable for your practice. You should aim for a keyword that has lower competition and high search volume.
