LAS VEGAS, April 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
FN Media Group Presents Microcapspeculators.com News Commentary
On April 13th President Donald Trump announced unprecedented support of legalizing marijuana. This is a very big step for companies that are researching CBDs and other cannabidiol products for consumers, and patients. Jeff Sessions, the current Attorney General, has been extremely anti-marijuana, but Trump is in support of states' rights to decide their own marijuana laws.
Just days later, Chuck Schumer and the democrats introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana on the federal level. This is extremely important as it pertains to the ability of firms to research marijuana and, more importantly, cannabinoids. These moves by democrats, and the President, could be a massive catalyst for companies involved in the CBDs.
Some companies that are researching CBD and other cannabinoids include: NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ: GWPH), INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC), and General Cannabis Corp. (OTC: CANN).

On April 20th NGTF announced that the licensing agreement had been finalized and executed, and the initial production run of Half-Baked cannabis-infused cookies should be on shelves in May of 2018.
