Can CBD help with heartburn or acid reflux?

CVS, Walmart and soon many other companies will be pulling Zantac and other drugs containing ranitidine because they may contain low levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a nitrosamine impurity. According to the FDA, NDMA has been classified as a probable human carcinogen based on laboratory test results. 

You may ask yourself, what should I do?   You may rely on this medication for instances
of heartburn, or daily like it did.   I
used to take generic ranitidine daily for heart burn or GERD.  Here is some of my background:

In 2017 I was taking ranitidine daily,
and also suffering from anxiety,  I
started a CBD regiment of 25mg in the morning and evening for my anxiety and it
began working within a week.    Within 2
weeks, I no longer had my anxiety and I also noticed that I was feeling better all
around.  I no longer had the heartburn feeling
after eating something like pizza or spicy food like before.  I was still taking Zantac/ranitidine, but I just
felt better.   For the next two weeks I
stopped taking the ranitidine and I haven’t had a major case of heartburn
since! 

In this article I have compiled some
research as to why CBD works for GERD or acid reflux.  

  What is GERD

Currently, 1 in 10 Americans experience heartburn almost daily. There are ways you can help treat GERD and its symptoms. Although pharmaceutical drugs are often used to treat GERD (like Zantac) , From my experience CBD and different cannabinoids can help treat this disease safely and effectively. Read on to find out the role cannabis plays in treating GERD/heartburn and its symptoms.

GERD refers to chronic symptoms including
mucosal damage that was originally produced by the abnormal reflux within the
body’s esophagus. Many people experience acid reflux, which is relatively
common and not too serious. However, chronic acid reflux in the form of GERD
can develop into a serious health issue. In the simplest of terms, GERD
consists of the return of content within the body’s stomach, which then backs
up into the esophagus. GERD takes place when the body’s lower esophageal
sphincter (LES) is weak and/or relaxes improperly. Then, if this occurs, the stomach’s content
can float back up into the body’s esophagus.

Within each body, there’s a valve called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which exists at the entrance of the body’s stomach. Once food enters the stomach, the LES should close to prevent food splashing back into the esophagus. If the LES doesn’t shut properly or if it opens regularly, it’s possible for stomach acid to travel into the body’s esophagus and lead to heartburn.

CBD
works for GERD:

Why Does it work? 

Our
bodies have what’s called an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which has many
functions including memory, sensations, pain perception and others. The ECS can
have a mitigating effect on gastric acid and the inflammation and other damage
which is what GERD (acid reflux, heartburn) sufferers feel.

In
general, CBD contains a variety of medicinal properties including its ability
to help reduce acid reflux.  It does this by helping to regulate the
secretion of gastric acids to the esophagus  and lower sphincter, and greatly reduces the
secretion of the acids that cause the “burn” in “heartburn”. Not only does it
reduce the acids that cause heartburn, its anti-inflammatory power reduces
esophogeal discomfort and decreases the movement of the fluids in the stomach
and GI tract. Because of the decreased movement and reduction in inflammation,
the main symptoms of GERD are treated.

Studies
have shown that CBD addresses multiple symptoms at once with very few side
effects. Cannabinoids change how the gut feels, it affects the signals the brain
sends back and forth to the gut and regulates the functioning of the GI tract.

I hope this article was informative, and if you experience heartburn, acid reflux, or GERD, try observing the foods you eat because they may be worsening GERD symptoms, especially caffeine and alcohol. Above all else though, CBD or Cannabidiol plays an essential role in helping treat GERD and its symptoms. If you’re interested in giving cannabis a chance, it’s suggested to consume it orally or sublingually to prevent further irritation from occurring.  Use one of our top recommended brands and give it a try!

During the last few years, there has been increased consolidation in the cannabis industry and we have identified trends over the course of this time period.

The first wave of acquisitions started in Canada and this trend lasted several years. This wave of acquisitions still ranks as some of the most expensive transactions and was highlighted by Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB.TO) (ACB) acquired two Licensed Producers for a combined price that was greater than $7 billion.

The second wave of acquisitions took place in 2018 and 2019 and was primarily related to US cannabis retailers. Since cannabis is illegal at the federal level in the US, these transactions took much long to complete (when compared to Canada) and many of the deals were scrapped due to plunging stock prices. The most significant failed acquisition in this vertical was MedMen Enterprises’ (MMEN.CN) (MMNNF) deal to purchase Pharmacann. After this transaction was called off, MedMen has come under considerable pressure and was assigned a $0 price target from Canaccord Genuity (CF.TO).

From an acquisition standpoint, 2020 has been a slower than normal year for the cannabis sector. Companies are being much more strategic when it comes to acquiring or investing in businesses that could be complementary or accretive in nature.

One of the more interested trends that we have identified with the cannabis M&A market is related to the types of businesses that are being purchased. Previously, cannabis companies were focused on acquiring assets that would increase production capacity, improve brand awareness, or expand into a different vertical.

In the current market environment, technology is playing a much larger role in M&A activity and we consider this to be the third wave of acquisitions. In this phase, we believe that companies are focused on purchasing businesses that can lead to margin expansion, positive cash flow generation, or improved profitability.

One of the best examples of this is the merger between Stem Holdings Inc. (STEM.CN) (STMH) and Driven Deliveries Inc. (DRVD). The companies operate completely different businesses and are levered to different parts of the cannabis value chain. We consider the merger to be strategic in nature and expect the combined company to record stronger revenue growth, margin expansion, and positive adjusted EBITDA.

Stem Holdings owns cannabis assets that are located in strategic US markets. Driven utilizes a state-of-the-art delivery platform to service the California cannabis market. The combined company can use Driven’s technology to capitalize on cannabis delivery opportunity in the markets that Stem is levered to and are bullish on the potential value that can be created through this strategy.

At current levels, the combined company is trading at a considerable discount to its peers and we believe that it has a compelling valuation. Due to the technology side of the business, the combined company should be valued at a higher multiple and we believe that the market is missing out on something significant with it.

If you look at the performance of other cannabis companies that have acquired tech assets, you will notice a positive trend after an initial period of weakness. We are not sure if this is the case with Stem Holdings and Driven but are bullish on the long-term opportunity that is associated with the combined company.

Cannabis And Hemp Industry Insurance

The post Cannabis And Hemp Industry Insurance appeared first on Cannabis Lawyer – Tom Howard – Law Firm for Marijuana & Hemp Businesses.

Insurance coverage is a necessity for businesses in every industry, cannabis and hemp related ones are certainly not the exception. But of course, insurance in the cannabis industry comes with its twist and many complications, as most things in this industry do.

It is no secret the cannabis business is skyrocketing, many states have now legalized both medical and recreational marijuana and many more are close to take that step later this year. Nevertheless availability of insurance coverage for the cannabis industry remains in flux.

The issues surrounding cannabis insurance are mostly due to the constant changing regulation, lack of data, and many banking restrictions. Still, this industry may offer an even higher reward to insurers who overpass the complexities Federal illegality of the industry brings.

A comprehensive insurance program may be your best protection against the many risks you face on a daily basis as a cannabis entrepreneur, here is what you need to know when deciding to insurance your business.

What challenges do cannabis companies face when finding insurance?

While the industry is growing, insurance coverage is having a hard time to keep pace with its risk management needs. Conflicting state and federal laws have made insurance carriers reluctant to write cannabis policies, resulting in higher prices.

Although the stigma and uncertainty of the cannabis industry has decreased in the past years, and education has become and incredible asset to the discussion of legalization of cannabis, it is still a very difficult industry for insurance companies to get into.

Not only the regulations change drastically from state to state – since states don’t have the same regulatory environment for cannabis – the insurance industry is forced to address those differences in terms of coverage and policy making.

Even with the reputation risk being a much lesser concern, the fear of federal prosecution of financial and insurance institutions if services to legitimate marijuana businesses are provided has played a major part in making insurers avoid adjusting their policies to accommodate cannabis business protection for fear.

In reality, since insurance companies are regulated by state no on a federal level, there shouldn’t be any risk as long as the insurance companies and their clients comply with state regulations and always operate in-state.

What Risks Do Cannabis and Hemp Business Need To be Protected From?

As the legalization of both medicinal and recreational cannabis continues to grow, manufacturers, distributors and retailers, have to be prepared to deal with the controversy of the industry that points to risk management implications.

Incidents that impact cannabis businesses can cause irrevocable financial and reputational damage:

Product Liability

Product liability includes but is not limited to breach of warranty, failure to warn, label claims, misrepresentation, fungus, pesticides, and vaporizers.

Claims of illness caused by products, manufacturing or product-related defects that result in a loss, and damage because product misuse are very common occurrences in the cannabis industry.

A recent vaping crisis has increased the risk exposure and coverage gaps. Insurance carriers are now adding more exclusions for vape products, premium rates are increasing for product liability coverage.

Theft and Fraud

Many cannabis businesses remain cash only and that is a significant part of risk exposure for the industry, since they become the prime targets for theft and fraud. Also, the nature of these businesses makes them specifically vulnerable to theft.

General Liability

Standard general liability policies, needed by all other businesses to protect themselves from lawsuits, were not created with the cannabis industry in mind, and since there is so much legal uncertainty it may be difficult for insurance companies to offer adequate general liability for those cannabis businesses that need it.

Crop Loss

Crop loss is coverage for crops in the event of loss or damage by insured perils including fire, lightning and hail. It does hold an area for risk exposure in the cannabis industry different from other businesses.

Fire, theft, and sprinkler leakage are common threats most indoor crop insurance policies cover. Buty cannabis growers experience different threats as well, such as mold, rot, disease, changes in climate, or fertilization problems.

Because of recent natural disasters, outdoor coverage has become hard to find and those insurance companies with such policies have increased exponentially the prices. The lack of available outdoor crop insurance is one of the biggest gaps in cannabis business coverage.

Cannabis And Hemp Industry Insurance

What cannabis related industries need insurance coverage

  • Cultivators: Cultivators are confronted with a wide range of risk challenges including fire, theft, equipment breakdown and other inherent risks that impact the business.
  • Manufacturers: Manufacturers of hemp and cannabis products carry many of the same standards and regulatory requirements as other types of vendors. They require insurance protection such as product liability and product recall.
  • Dispensaries: Many retail stores of everyday consumer based products require insurance to protect themselves from burglary, vandalism, fire and other hazards that could strike at any moment, cannabis dispensaries are not the exception.
  • Ancillary businesses: Many ancillary businesses require insurance protection and they still suffer from the challenges and uncertainties all cannabis businesses face. They require general and professional liability, property, products and workers’ compensation insurance, among others.
  • Testing laboratories: Not properly insuring your cannabis testing lab could lead to massive financial losses that many business owners wouldn’t be able to recover from. testing equipment, computers, documents, or samples are expensive and important property that could be damaged in a fire, burglary, or other unpredictable events
  • Landlords: Landlords that support cannabis and hemp industries are also exposed to inherent challenges of the industry that put their businesses in risk.

What is Cannasure?

In this Cannabis Legislation News episode we had the opportunity to talk to Patrick McManamon CEO of Cannasure, a cannabis insurance company that has been serving hundreds of cannabis businesses since 2010 and mitigating the challenges they face when trying to get insurance coverage

Their understanding of the industry and many years of expertise analyzing the unique risks facing the cannabis industry gives them a leverage to best serve cannabis and hemp related businesses.

The origins of Cannasure can be traced back to one of our oldest friends who was in the process of opening a medical marijuana cooperative in Southern California. During one of our weekly conversations, we discussed the trouble he was having securing business owner’s insurance at a reasonable cost. We offered to take over the search and report back to him on our findings. With that, we became involved in this complex industry.

We saw, first hand, that the stigma against the burgeoning marijuana industry was strong, but not based in fact. We also quickly became aware of the many brokers and agencies looking to make a quick buck without understanding the true needs of the businesses in the industry. We knew something had to change, and we were the ones to do it.
