Today is National CBD Day, and if you know what's good for you, you got me a card to celebrate this highest of high holy days, and maybe a nice CBD related gift as well. (Hint: Chocolate.)
Insofar as I got mail delivered today, and my bank is open, National CBD
As with anything new, shiny, and full of promise, CBD is being hailed as a miracle ingredient that can solve any and all things that ails you, no matter the problem.
Yes, CBD is a wonder cannabinoid with tremendous potential, and it’s better to introduce clean, well sourced, and tested CBD
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has announced a ban beginning January 1 to prohibit makers of alcoholic beverages from adding CBD to the drinks.
Until recently, the best known line of alcoholic drinks with CBD was arguably beers made and sold by Coalition Brewing, which recently shut down their operations.
The sheer range of cannabis products for sale in Oregon can be downright overwhelming. And most of us are unfamiliar with what is available, the quality of the merchandise, and where it came from.
What’s more, the mass consolidation of dispensaries and brands can seriously undercut the “buy local” component.
2019 was arguably the biggest year for hemp since 1937, when it, along with all forms of cannabis, was first criminalized. The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act has had explosive, though uneven, results.
As with cannabis, rules and regulations for hemp vary from
CBD products are all the rage, and so is the debate as to their effectiveness. Some believe it’s nothing more than modern day snake oil, predicated on baseless claims and promises.
Others believe it can be a matter of the product using alcohol distillate versus full spectrum CBD. And don’t forget
The plant that produces the flowers you smoke to get all high and stuff—which we will call "cannabis"—differs in appearance from the hemp plant that doesn't get you high but is capable of producing the CBD that's going to fix everything wrong with you.
It doesn't differ by much, but it
As great as it is to be able to buy your CBD at the Gas 'n' Sip—and it is, really—you may want your CBD offerings to be produced and presented in a slightly more...Pacific Northwesterly manner.
Artisan. Organic. Small batch. Women positive/owned. Innovative. And probably bearded. A place you can go
Cannabis tinctures are a great delivery system. Cannabis and hemp are soaked in either high-proof alcohol or a fat such as coconut oil, and the result offers a whole profile of the extracted plant, including a full range of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids and terpenes.
It’s an ancient way of
When you smoke, vape, or eat cannabis, you obtain the cannabinoids THC and CBD from any of the thousands of different strains of cannabis plants. Until now, this was really the only way to get those cannabinoids, and trust me, it worked great.
But a recent announcement from a man who
Last week—right before Washington, DC, turned into a circus—the federal government allocated a total of $3 million in the form of nine research grants, to determine if CBD has effects on pain.
NBC reported that the grants were made through National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. A second round of
[COLUMNIST’S NOTE: As a cannabis columnist, I receive endless press releases, emails, and marketing materials relating to new cannabis and hemp products, projects, events, conferences, and expos.
I gathered 1,000 of these pieces, and forced a stoned bot to read them and then write the following press releases—because if there’s anything independent
The legalization of hemp as a crop has led to some great things. (Yay, hemp!) But nothing is everything all the time, and legal hemp is causing some massive headaches for officials in Florida (much like the type of headaches you get when you smoke hemp).
It's a very special Florida
Through reports and anecdotal evidence, cannabis has been touted to offer benefits to those dealing with cancer, and to alleviate the side effects of cancer treatment.
The reduction of anxiety, nausea, pain, and loss of appetite make cannabis a seeming wonder drug that many caregivers will attest to all day long.
Cannabis—and the devil’s cannabinoid, THC—are all the rage, but hemp and CBD have recently been gaining just as much national attention.
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill made hemp farming legal, which led many to assume that hemp, and the CBD that can be processed from it, would immediately be
