    ‘Facts Can Save Lives:’ 10 Powerful Takeaways From New Documentary ‘CBD Nation’

    Have you watched the new documentary CBD Nation?

    Only in recent years has CBD made its way into mainstream vernacular and consequently, cannabidiol has never fully been told on-screen. Buzzword status was reached roughly in 2018—the same the year National CBD Day (August 8) was recognized by the registrar at National Day Calendar. The soon-to-be-released documentary, CBD Nation, is the first wide-release film dedicated to the cannabis plant compound’s deep roots.

  • Health and Wellness with Terpenes

    Recently while we were in Washington, D.C. engaging with stakeholders, we kept on being asked, “What are terpenes?”  The short answer: they are the main producer of scent from plants. The long answer: specific plants create certain smells that are unique to natural compounds. When a botanical such as lavender or sage is distilled and concentrated, you can create an individual terpene. Isolated terpenes have a wide range of natural primitive health and wellness benefits to help people live a better quality of life.

  • Is Hemp-Derived CBD Legal? Mitch McConnell Thinks it Ought to Be.

    Farm Bill Amendment Passes in Senate. Upcoming House Vote Could End All Controversy Regarding Hemp-Derived CBD.

    There was some very exciting news over the past few weeks concerning hemp and CBD.  With the full support of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Senate voted overwhelmingly (86-11) to approve an amendment to the Farm Bill that would officially recognize Hemp as legal to grow and cultivate in all U.S. States and territories.  Even more promising, against a huge public outcry, the Senate committee opted to ignore language that would have carved out hemp derivatives, such as CBD extracts and hemp-derived CBD, as illegal and still subject to the Controlled Substances Act. While the House still needs to approve the Bill before it goes into law, the lopsided support in favor of the bill bodes well for its chances of being approved by Congress.
