In response to the letter issued by the Louisiana Ofﬁce of Alcohol and Tobacco Control - ATC www.atc.la.gov/ regarding Blue Moon products Flan, Black Kat and Red Devil being listed as having a “controlled substance”, i.e., THC in our formulations, we have been in contact with the legal counsel of the ATC to have us removed from this list. An in-person meeting with Commissioner Juana Marine-Lombard is being scheduled in the near future, in an effort to correct the record.
Blue Moon Hemp uses CBD Crystalline with a THC level of “Trip Zero” or .0001. That is...
Coca-Cola and CBD?
According to a report from BNN Bloomberg Television, Coca-Cola has stated that it's monitoring the Cannabinoid (CBD) market - contemplating whether it wants to throw its cap into the ring to create a drink infused with Coca-Cola and CBD.
Currently, the Atlanta-based soft drinks maker is said to be in talks with Aurora Cannabis (a Canadian marijuana producer) to develop the beverages. However, as there are many other CBD infused drinks on the market, Coca-Cola is aiming to create a CBD wellness drink that will help ease inflammation, pain, and cramping. Rather than making its focus on giving consumers...
A Cornell University study has found that a product made with hemp oil is helpful in treating dogs, and especially old dogs, for pain.
The eight month study of soft chews made by ElleVet showed the chews helped dogs with arthritis and related aches and pains. Ganjapreneur reports:
According to a press release announcing the study’s results, more than 80 percent of dogs who used ElleVet Mobility soft chews saw a dramatic improvement. Vets who worked on the study called the product “a game changer that will change the face of veterinary medicine.”

Pennsylvania farmers are increasing the acreage they're devoting to industrial hemp, while two more states draw closer to allowing it.
In Pennsylvania, farmers plan to grow up to 1,000 acres of hemp, about 30 times as much as they did in 2017, according to state agriculture secretary Russell Redding. According to Lancaster Farming:
Redding announced the Department of Agriculture approved 39 industrial hemp research applications on Feb. 15. If all applicants complete the permitting process, nearly 1,000 acres of hemp will be growing this spring. Last year, 14 growers produced a total of 36 acres statewide. About one third of those...
We've gotten used to products infused with CBD Oil. The rest of the world is catching up as companies experiment with such infusions for coffee and other treats.
That's definitely happening in Burlington, Vermont, the Burlington Free Press reports:
Already awash with options, Java-swillers and tea-lovers in Burlington are increasingly topping up their cups with CBD, or cannabidiol, purveyors say.
The fuel additive is a legal, no-high hemp derivative that typically raises a café tab by about $2.50.
Enthusiasts have voted with their wallets, said Dan Smith of Cosmic Grind on Church Street: “CBD sells itself.”
Stirred, foamed, dolloped or steeped, CDB transforms the buzz of...
Alliance One International, a global contractor, processor and supplier of tobacco, is jumping into the legal cannabis and CBD Oil businesses.
The company announced last week it was taking controlling stakes in Canada's Island Garden, a licensed cannabis company, and Goldleaf Pharm, which has applied for a Canadian license.
Alliance One also said it was also buying a 40 percent stake in Criticality, a North Carolina company participating in a pilot program to extract CBD Oil from industrial hemp as part of a state pilot program. Alliance One has the option to increase ownership in that company to 50 percent in...
We've known CBD oil and other hemp products were beneficial for a while. Now the mainstream press is catching up.
The New York Times had a report recently that CBD products are all the rage these days in celebrity and beauty circles. According to the Times:
There are already devout fans, some boldfaced, who are drawn to CBD topical products largely for their pain-relieving properties. Olivia Wilde recently told this reporter that she used it to relieve physical aches during a Broadway run. The fashion stylist Karla Welch, who works with Ms. Wilde, Ruth Negga, Katy Perry and Sarah Paulson, uses Lord Jones...
Good CBD Oil can have many benefits. But how do you know you're getting the highest quality supplement?
It can be extremely difficult. As Donna Gregory Burch writes at National Pain report, the nature of the industry makes it tougher to get what you need.
As she points out:
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found nearly 70 percent of hemp CBD oil sold online was mislabeled. During the Penn Medicine study, researchers analyzed 84 products purchased from 31 companies. Around 42 percent of products were under-labeled, meaning the product contained more CBD than labeled. Twenty-six percent of...
A Colorado company says mapping the cannabis plant's genome can help sort out the legitimate claims about products such as CBD Oil from the bogus.
“DNA, of course I’m biased because it’s what I do, but it doesn’t lie. It really is a way to just sort of clear a lot of the b.s.,” said CJ Schwartz, chief executive officer of Sunrise Genetics. “The excessive claims are really doing a disservice to the plant or the potential of the plant and the science surrounding that.”
According to Bloomberg (via The Cannabist):
A deeper understanding of genetics means companies will be able to figure...
Hemp Oil Highly Demand:
As we all know about the swiftly growing cannabis oil industry is a new category of products seeing its own equally rapid rise in popularity of cannabidiol hemp oil, or CBD hemp oil. These highly demanded hemp derived products are available for purchase online and delivery straight to your door, or at retailers in all 50 states and over 40 countries around the world.
CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is because hemp contains only trace amounts of...
