O’Cannabiz 2019

The 2019 O’Cannabiz Conference and Expo is happening in Toronto this weekend. The dates are from April 25 to April 29. This will be a beehive of activity if past shows and the current mania of growth in this industry is any indication.

This year the conference is happening at the International Center in Mississagua at 6900 Airport Road, where there is usually plenty of free parking. This location is a fair distance from downtown Toronto where most of the cannabis conferences take place. It is right beside the airport however, so that is a bonus for out of town visitors.

At any rate, there is a lot of excitement and quite amazing growth since legalization has started to become widespread industry as anyone who has not been hiding under a rock for the past 4 or 5 years is probably aware of. The O’Cannabiz conference is voted #1 cannabis event in Canada by High Canada magazine, and they are usually on top of these industry events.

Here is an update on the wondrous effects of CBD which is a non-psychoactive element in the cannabis plant which is getting constant press nowadays for the positive effects people have been experiencing in it’s usage. We snagged this section of info from the High Canada Instagram post, which they apparently got from @traitbiosciences….hope no one minds,

Reposted from @traitbiosciences – CBD IS AMAZING 🙌🏻🌿…Studies say CBD can be an all natural alternative to many anti-anxiety & sleep aid meds. When ingested, CBD activates cell receptors in our Endocannabinoid System that help alleviate anxiety. Research suggests that CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors, which can reduce anxiety & boost mood. Studies have reported that patients suffering from depression or anxiety often have a smaller hippocampus. The hippocampus is part of the brain and plays a critical role in many brain functions, such as memory and cognition. Successful treatment of depression and anxiety is associated with the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus. According to research, evidence suggests that CBD may help the hippocampus regenerate neurons.

Stay tuned for updates on this wonderful substance as the FDA is apparently slated to review CBD usability according to their rules around the end of May 2019.

There are people who may never warm up to or desire the effects of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), whether it is medically approved or not. THC is the part of the plant which gives people the “high” feeling, also known as psychotropic effect.

They can still benefit from the wondrous substances the cannabis plant provides however, by using CBD oil. This is due to the fact humans have an endocannabinoid system as part of our make-up. A brief description is that the endocannabinoid system is important in maintaining homeostasis which is the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

According to an article from the website

“The endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see a mechanism that explains how states of consciousness can promote health or disease.”

CBD oil (also known as hemp oil) can provide many benefits with no unwanted side effects so it is no wonder there is such interest of late. As of 2015 there were an estimate 20,000 medical articles in the search of PubMed scientific journals containing the words cannabis plus cannabinoid. CBD oil is legal in a large number of jurisdictions and ongoing research is showing promising results.

According to a recent article on the website

“Scientist have shown that CBD oil has a pharmacological profile very similar to that of nonconforming anti psychotic drugs and has the same anti psychotic effects.”

The list of benefits being discovered and under research is hopeful and encouraging:

-May provide relief from pain and inflammation
-Helpful reducing anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder
-Reduction in frequency of seizures
-Help reduce nausea and vomiting
-Provides an increased level of alertness, improved mood and better sleep
-Promotes cardiovascular health by protecting against the vascular damage caused by high glucose, inflammation or type 2 diabetes
-CBD oil may also provide relief for those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
-Studies show CBD oil may help patients fight various types of cancer
-Some evidence of protecting against the vascular damage caused by high glucose, inflammation or type 2 diabetes.


CBD oil is legal in the United States and may be bought online.
The list of other countries in which CBD oil is legal is quite extensive:

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Guam, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, Northern Ireland, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, U.S. Virgin Islands, Uruguay.


Ancient societies have used the cannabis and hemp plants for a wide variety of things, with evidence being found as far back as 10,000 years. We may be getting the distinct feeling that old is new again…
Ah well such is it to be human. This time around hard science as we know it today is being applied. This gives a measure of comfort to most people, especially when the elderly and young ones need medical aid.

As Thomas Edison stated in 1902 ” “There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.”

The cannabis plant itself even uses THC and other cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease. Clearly something good is going on!

Stay tuned for updates on CBD oil and it’s many wondrous benefits.
