What is pure CBD oil without THC and how can it help with pain, cancer and illness?
Idaho businessmen Joel Bordeaux and Kelsey Kilmartin watched as dozens of parents pleaded with lawmakers to allow children with severe forms of epilepsy to be legally treated with cannabidiol (CBD) during an emotional 2015 debate at the Idaho Statehouse. The 2015 Idaho Legislature approved a bill that would have legalized the use of CBD, but Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter vetoed the measure after his Office of Drug Policy said the bill was just a step toward legalizing medical marijuana. Meanwhile, Bordeaux and Kilmartin were already working on an alternative.
“I saw the writing on the wall regarding this years ago,” Bordeaux said, speaking from the Sandpoint-based headquarters of Global CBD LLC, which he and Kilmartin co-own. “The only way to go on this was hemp.”
Now, Bordeaux and Kilmartin are preparing to put their hemp-based CBD products in Idaho stores, including a number in Treasure Valley. “But those retailers really wanted to see some clarification from the Idaho attorney general’s office,” said Bordeaux. “That’s a critical piece.”
So, Bordeaux was anxious to forward an opinion from the AG’s office which offers “an informal opinion” on Idaho’s definitions of marijuana. “Most importantly, our hemp CBD products have no tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC,” said Bordeaux, referring to the principal ingredient that makes marijuana a controlled substance in Idaho.
“Secondly, it’s important to know that the hemp we’re using comes from stalks and stems of the male variety, not the female flowering variety. That’s why it’s OK to use, like a lot of other hemp products.”
“Idaho law exempts products from cannabis stalks and stems as long as there isn’t any THC.” Global CBD is already being sold in Idaho’s panhandle. “My goal is for Sandpoint to be the CBD capital of the nation,” said Bordeaux. “But above all, it’s about helping people. I think a lot of people are going to be excited to see this.” Original Article by By George Prentice – http://www.boiseweekly.com/boise/oil-change-idaho-produced-hemp-cbd-coming-to-the-treasure-valley/Content?oid=3770723
FYI: Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is one of the most common anxiety conditions with impairment in social life. Cannabidiol (CBD), one major non-psychotomimetic compound of the cannabis sativa plant, has shown anxiolytic effects both in humans and in animals. This preliminary study aimed to compare the effects of a simulation public speaking test (SPST) on healthy control (HC) patients and treatment-naïve SAD patients who received a single dose of CBD or placebo.
