For the first time in North American history, Canadian supermarket chain Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart, announced that employee benefit plans would now include coverage for medical marijuana. The company employs nearly 200,000 people and represents the largest corporate acceptance of medical cannabis in North America.

A new study, published in Archives of Osteoporosis, found regular cannabis consumers who partook more than five times per month had an on average lower body mass index (BMI), a measure of body fat based on height and weight, when compared to non-users.
The researchers surveyed 4,743 participants nationally between the ages of 20 and 59 to investigate the relationship between cannabis use and various health outcomes.
Previous studies have found cannabis use to be linked to a lower BMI, lower body fat percentage, and smaller waist circumference. Preclinical animal trials even suggest that cannabis can serve as protection against obesity. Researchers believe that cannabis protects against excess fat gain through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for managing metabolic function. A dysfunctional or overactive endocannabinoid system may contribute to fat accumulation and obesity, and cannabinoids may help keep the system operate properly.

Now let’s break that down for a second, in case you're envisioning me traveling with 20 pounds of cannabis in my carry-on. No, I bring a vape pen or cookies or some other form aside from the flower itself.
And remember here is the s [...]
