Christian Book Distributors Changes Name to Avoid Confusion with CBD

Ray Hendrickson owns an incredibly popular website, but these days, a significant number of visitors are finding themselves disappointed at the landing page. That’s because Hendrickson’s website, www.CBD.com, has nothing to do with hemp or marijuana-derived cannabidiol, and is instead a decades-old marketplace for Christian literature. Yes, as far as the internet is concerned, Hendrickson’s company, Christian Book Distributors is the original CBD. But with cannabidiol products now taking over the health, wellness, beauty, and alternative medicine industries, the New York Times is reporting that the independent book seller has decided to permanently change the company’s name. The owner hopes to avoid further phone calls and confusion mistaking his brand for a hemp oil distributor. “The prob...

If You’re Curious About CBD, Give This Comprehensive Guide a Read Before You Try It

CBD oil is unquestionably the most buzz-worthy ingredient right now. It’s so popular, in fact, that revenue from products made with CBD—the naturally-occurring compound present in the flowers and leaves of cannabis plants (there’s no THC, which means it can’t get you high)—are projected to grow to $20 billion by 2024. Why? CBD is compelling to consumers largely because it comes with a laundry list of promising purported health benefits—from reduced anxiety to help with nausea, inflammation, and insomnia. We’re still waiting for clearance from the FDA (and more robust research on the proven perks of the ingredient), but in the meantime, many consumers are eager to test out the positive potential of CBD. If you’re one of these folks wondering whether it’s time to jump on th...

What Is The Best Time Of Day To Take CBD?

Cannabidiol has become a part of the daily lives of many users, taken as part of their routine just like any supplement or medicine. Once or twice a day, they fill a dropper, take a few gummies or swallow a capsule to help manage a chronic condition, like pain, anxiety, or anxiety. As it turns out, when CBD is taken may make a difference in how it affects users; finding the right time of day could improve the effectiveness of this hemp-derived product, getting users closer to their desired results. The Right Time For Each Delivery Method Before deciding which time of day is best for you, it is important to understand that the delivery method used for CBD changes when and how often it should be used. This is because each method is absorbed differently in the body, some more quickly than oth...

California Is Poised To Pass A Landmark Hemp CBD Law

California is on the brink of legalizing hemp-derived cannabidiol (“Hemp CBD”) in many products—well, sort of. The law at issue is Assembly Bill 228 (“AB-228”), and I’ve been writing about it since it was introduced in January 2019 (for my posts on it, see here, here, and here). As of today, it’s made its way through the California Assembly and most of the way through the California Senate with very little resistance. AB-228 is likely to pass soon, and because it is what’s called an “urgency” statute, will become immediately effective. Since I started writing about AB-228, the bill has morphed a lot, and now actually has some teeth. Even if it passes though, Hemp CBD may not be completely legal in the Golden State. Here’s a brief explanation of what’s happened, and what’s at stake. About a...

What Was Said at Yesterday’s Congressional Hearing on Federal Marijuana Law Reform

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security held a hearing today on the impact of marijuana laws in America. Despite the wave of cannabis progress, and products, sweeping the country coast to coast, marijuana arrests rose in America last year for the second year in a row. Are we generally down from the most horrifying arrest numbers seen when prohibition was at full blast? Yes. Are communities of color still impacted the most by cannabis enforcement? That’s going to be a big yes. The committee noted in announcing the hearing that of the 660,000 arrests for marijuana last year, 600,000 were for simple possession. The Committee leadership was hoping to give the reps taking part an opportunity to consider the wider issues around the importance of reforming mari...

90% of Adults Using Cannabis & CBD for Pain Reduced or Stopped Opioid Use

One of the most classic anti-cannabis myths ever is that marijuana is a “gateway drug.” According to this idea, weed causes people to move into dangerous drug abuse. But, as more and more research is showing, that myth is simply not true. In fact, the exact opposite may be more accurate. It appears that cannabis can actually help people stop using harmful drugs. Specifically, opioids. Thanks to a recently published study, there is more evidence than ever showing that cannabis could be a way to help wean people off of potential addiction to opioids. New Study on Cannabis and Opioids The new study was published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. It looked at survey results from cannabis consumers in Colorado. Specifically, researchers worked with two dispensaries. The shops asked customer...

New York Health Inspectors are Looking for CBD Products at Eateries

The CBD craze continues going strong. And in New York City, as well as other cities across the country, CBD products are starting to show up in restaurants, bars, cafes, coffee shops, and pretty much anywhere that sells food. Yet despite the ubiquity of CBD and CBD-infused foods and drinks, many law enforcement and public health agencies remain deeply confused and uncertain about the legal status of CBD. The latest example of this comes from the New York Department of Health. Specifically, the DOH has now announced that it will start cracking down on businesses selling CBD foods and drinks. Cracking Down on CBD Products Earlier this year, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said it was going to shutting down the sale of CBD-infused products in New York City. However, this initial a...

CBD for Anger Management: Everything You Need To Know

During the time of heavy stress or severe pain, anger comes out as the first reaction from every person. Though, when the situation of anger goes out of control or it is continuously repetitive in nature, then it could adversely impact on the mental condition and create a feeling of avoidance from the other relationships.

Players Are Using and Endorsing CBD, but PGA Tour is Wary

It’s one of the most popular trends on tour. And, some would argue, one of its riskiest. In 2018, the World AntiDoping Agency removed CBD from its Prohibited List, allowing its use by PGA Tour players and Olympic athletes. (The tour, as a participant in the Games, takes its direction on drug enforcement from WADA and the United States Anti-Doping Agency.) Maggie Durand of WADA says a drug is placed on the list for meeting two of three criteria: It has the potential to enhance sport performance, it represents a health risk to the athletes, and it violates the spirit of sport. According to tour players, caddies and coaches interviewed by Golf Digest, perhaps 15 to 20 players, or more, routinely use a CBD product. Bubba Watson, Charley Hoffman, Lucas Glover and Scott Piercy are among th...
