This Week In CBD

The CBD industry is ever changing. Each week, CBD Oil Solutions puts together abstracts and links to ten recent this week in CBD news stories making headlines that are relevant to our industry.

Indiana Veterans Advocate For CBD

Indiana already allows CBD to be prescribed. Now a group of United States military veterans are asking for support. A Republican Representative from Indiana is preparing a medical marijuana law. At CBD Oil Solutions, we feel that the veterans needs are one of our industry and country’s highest priorities.

Advocates with the group called “Hoosier Veterans for Medical Cannabis” say allowing veterans to have medical marijuana would end up saving lives. “We’re not all just trying to do this so we can all smoke joints and go be happy somewhere and hide out in the woods,” says Army Veteran, Jimmy Giordano.

Huffington Post Covers Hemp and Why It Won’t Get You High

Mainstream media coverage of CBD and Hemp is always good. The Huffington Post lead heard with their headline using both the words hemp and getting high and then also early in the article mention the stigma between hemp and marijuana, and how so many can’t get over the difference. This is again a big issue for CBD and CBD products derived from hemp.

Marijuana is federally illegal and will continue to be in many states. Hemp is NOT. While some marijuana brands talk of “high CBD,” the true, healing potential exists in the LEGAL Hemp CBD products that exist on the market today and sites like CBD Oil Solutions.

There are lots of opinions on politics. Always have been, always will be. However, some issues hit home more than others. The regulations that the hemp industry continues to face affects all of us. People are being restricted access to CBD Oil in many states through confusion. Manufacturers are still hesitant to include hemp in their products because of the questions around.

Rural America was campaigned hard during this presidential election. That includes the often forgotten hemp farmer. Things like denied bank accounts, denied crop insurance, and more plague hemp farmers. Problems that do not exist for those of other crops.

From cannabis oil extractors to hemp cultivators, web designers focusing on the hemp industry and hemp-fiber apparel the event featured a diverse mix celebrating the wonderful plant.

Cannabis Oil Is Beauty’s Hottest New Ingredient

CBD likely won’t be taking over New York Fashion Week anytime soon. You probably won’t see it being endorsed by a Jenner or Kardashian on the runways of Milan, either, but theFasionSpot outlines some CBD Oil products busting into the beauty space and how cannabidiol is becoming one of the hottest trends in beauty, skin care and basic health and wellness.

Unfortunately, the article incorrectly mentions legality. Hemp CBD skin care and beauty products are 100% legan in all 50 states. One of our favorites is CBDistillery’s CBDefine CBD Skin Cream.

Austin, Texas Company To Soon Begin Growing, Producing Hemp and CBD Products in Texas

Keep Austin Weird. That’s what they say, and looks like what they will get. This conservative state is ushering in CBD Oil sooner than many expected. The move comes in response to Texas Governor Greg Abbot’s signed 2015 measure the Texas Compassion Use Act.

The law allows for the sale of oils with low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive element in marijuana, and high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), a non-euphoric component known to treat other chronic medical conditions. The Compassionate Use Act tasked the Texas Department of Public Safety with licensing at least three dispensing organizations by Sept. 1, 2017. Two weeks after that deadline, only one dispensary has received final approval. Two other dispensaries — Surterra Texas and Compassionate Cultivation — are still “under review for statutory compliance,” according to DPS spokesman Tom Vinger.
