Visited “MedMen” (MedMen), which is considered the Apple Store of cannabis.
MedMen is the first U.S. cannabis-related company with a unicorn valuation exceeding $1 billion and is a publicly traded company headquartered in California, USA. The company operates in California, Nevada, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Massachusetts. MedMen operates 29 retail stores and six cultivation facilities.
The legal marijuana market (marijuana and hemp), including medical use, is a promising market that is projected to reach US$90.4 billion (¥9 trillion) by 2026, up from US$20.5 billion (¥2 trillion) in 2020.
There are three broad categories of uses: medical, flower/compound (marijuana = THC = gets you high, hemp = CBD = relaxes you). Marijuana as a compound has great promise as a food processing, such as chocolate, candy, etc.
Now, the marijuana market has been legalized mainly in Europe and the United States. Of course, marijuana (THC products) is not allowed in Japan. Hemp (CBD products), which has a relaxing effect, is perfectly fine.
MedMen” has separate sections for CBD and THC components in different amounts. For example, even sleeping pills are said to have different efficacy depending on the ratio of both ingredients: high CBD content simply makes you feel relaxed and sleepy, while high THC content first makes you feel high, tired, and goofy. How is that needlessly exciting? (lol.)
Well, but the clerk explains those explanations quite seriously and precisely.
The key here is to understand exactly the difference between CBD (to relax) and THC (to get high). They are like two different things! CBD products are already available in Japan in the form of gummies, chocolates, and many other common products.
Wellness” is a key concept in “MedMen. This is an interesting way of looking at it.
Well, I’ve explained the difference between CBD and THC properly below, so you all can study it. I think it is important to know about these new developments in the world.

Cannabis” and “hemp” are the same plant, but are distinguished by their components.
First of all, “cannabis” and “hemp” both come from a plant called “Cannabis sadiba,” which belongs to the family Asaceae and the genus Asclepiadaceae. The raw material is a ゙. In Japan, it is also called “hemp grass,” but the two are distinguished by the constituents they contain.
Both compounds interact with the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in biological maintenance mechanisms. It regulates a variety of functions necessary for survival, including metabolism, mood, digestion, sleep, immunity, heart function, and body temperature. Their effects are quite different.
CBD and THC are very similar in structure and have identical chemical formulas. However, they have different atomic arrangements and different structures. This difference in structure makes a significant difference in their effects on the organism when ingested.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that CBD has demonstrated and suggested effects on various symptoms of disease and that CBD has no potential for abuse or risks of potential personal or public health problems. The company acknowledges that it is not.
The “marijuana business” bubble with a market size of 3 trillion yen is coming in 2021…?
Japan’s “marijuana policy” is changing drastically here… “so much change” starting next spring.
