CBD as a Solution for Sleep

Published

on

Seen from one perspective, perhaps the most common malady in the modern world is that of difficulty with sleep. And this is awfully important considering that so much of life is spent on sleep.

In other words, the thing that all of us do so much of the time is something that so many of us have such a tough time doing.

From that standpoint, one might make the case that battling sleep disorders could be the most important responsibility that medical science has on its hands at present.

From that line of reasoning, one might think that the scientific and medical establishment would be awfully happy to see CBD come onto the scene.

CBD and Sleep

By association with cannabis, CBD has a bad rap. There’s a great deal of stigma attached to the concept of cannabis, as most of us know. Many people think of anything that comes from the cannabis plant as “we’d”. However, this is not fair.

CBD, unlike THC, is not psychoactive. As we have covered in other posts, CBD has a range of powerful applications for the prevention and treatment of a number of different health issues. Yet, at the same time, it doesn’t contain the downside that accompanies THC. In addition, in a point that is particularly important where sleep disorders are concerned, it also lacks the negative side effects often found in pharmaceutical alternatives for treating sleep disorders.

Insomnia impacts nearly 20% of all of us. It should also be noted that the rate of incidence of insomnia has constantly been increasing over recent decades, and particularly over recent years.

While those statistics are clearly daunting, there is some good news: anecdotal and formal research has begun to confirm the powerful positive impact on insomnia that can be found by the use of CBD.

What is so important about this finding is that it finally frees people up from having to depend on the drugs provided for sleep disorders by big Pharma – riddled as they are with terrible side effects and a strong potential for devastating addiction.

Given what we noted above – that this is one of the most prevalent problems facing individuals particularly in developed societies – this danger of addiction should not be overlooked in this analysis. Sleep is fundamental to health in so many ways. It has been said that everything begins with sleep when it comes to health. Sleep is the process by which we heal and rejuvenate ourselves. If that is compromised, so is everything else.

However, if the alternative to insomnia is addiction, then we are left with an extraordinarily different decision, and very much in need of a third way forward.

According to recent research, that third way is CBD. Studies have shown that experimental groups using CBD as a sleeping drug alternative have found healthier rest and stronger circadian patterns than those not exposed to the CBD. Without question, more formal research is needed to establish these findings on a firmer scientific footing. But the initial impression one receives is extremely hopeful, particularly given how critical this issue is to all of us.

CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST) Penetrates Into The United States After Investing $20 Million

Published

on

CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST), a Canadian company that produces and sells medical and recreational marijuana has announced the expansion of its business into the United States.

The Canadian firm revealed that it signed a Letter of Intent through which it will start working with Elk Grove Farming Company, LLC to access more than 3,000 hemp production acres in California. The two companies struck a joint partnership that will allow CannTrust to secure a footing in the California market which is one of the biggest cannabis markets in the U.S.

“This agreement represents another bold move for CannTrust. Our U.S. operation is expected to deliver a significant increase in low-cost production capacity,” stated CannTrust CEO Peter Aceto.

CannTrust is financially ready to tap into the U.S market

The CannTrust CEO also noted that the company will take advantage of its experience in the formulation of standardized CBD products as part of its strategy to enter the U.S market. Mr. Aceto also revealed that his company’s successful equity offering provided enough financial muscle to fuel its ambitious expansion plans.

CannTrust aims to be among the leading and trusted suppliers of high-quality, standardized CBD formulations derived from hemp. The company believes that there will be an increasing demand for high-grade CBD formulations from international retailers. It therefore makes sense to invest in processes that will add value to the end product such as genetic studies and expert growing practices to achieve the highest safety and quality standards.

Elk Grove and CannTrust will each have 50% ownership in their joint operations. Elk Grove is an ideal partner for the endeavor because it has years of farming experience in a variety of products. Its focus includes products designed for crop protection, supply, and input. Its operations are distributed across California, which means that the groundwork has already been laid for the partnership. It will thus be easier for the CannTrust to penetrate into the California market.

Elk Grove executive Morgan Houchin stated that his company was excited about the partnership with CannTrust. He added that his firm’s experience in farming operations will be a great combination with CannTrust’s experience in creating class-leading formulations.

Published

on

Lifestyle brand management firm Rocky Mountain High Brands Inc (OTCMKTS:RMHB) announced on Wednesday that it secured a broker deal with Carlin Group for its products in the retail space.

The broker agreement will allow Carlin to represent RMHB’s CBD-infused drinks through the HEMPd brand. It will also represent beverages infused with Hempseed extract under RMHB brands. The deal will also cover CBD-infused wellness products such as lotions, water-soluble solutions, capsules, gummies and tinctures as part of the HEMPd brand. Spirit Water will also be covered under the agreement.

The RMHB-Carlin broker deal covers multiple states. They include Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to have our entire product line represented by Carlin Group,” stated RMHB CEO Michael Welch.

The Carlin broker deal will boost RMHB’s exposure

Welch noted that the broker deal will strategically allow RMHB to leverage optimal exposure to mass marketers, grocery store chains, convenient stores, major retailers and other types of outlets. The company would not have managed to reach such a wide range of outlets cost-effectively without a broker deal.

The RMHB CEO also added that his company and Carlin will maintain a close collaboration so that they can facilitate retail availability of RMHB products. Welch also revealed that RMHB reviewed numerous other retail introduction options. This was before settling on Carlin which the company believes is the best-suited brand to rapidly get its products onto retail shelves.

Carlin Group’s Managing Director Albert Vergilio noted in a statement that his company was excited to host RMHB and the CBD-based products that are part of its HEMPd brand in Carlin’s new CBD division. He also added that it is part of investing in the future of CBD considering the fast-tracked popularity of CBD products, and the regulations that govern them.

Carlin’s sales team will undergo some training to get them acquainted with RMBH’s products. The sales team will then hold meetings with corporate customers as part of the retail rollout of the products. Sales that will be part of the broker deal are expected to kick off in Q3.
