How Disney and Other Theme Parks Handle Medical Marijuana and CBD

If you’re planning a trip to one of Disney’s theme parks, Universal, or Six Flags as a mini-vacation during this weird year, you may be wondering about their CBD and medical marijuana policy. If you’re wondering how they accommodate CBD and medical marijuana use, even for those with a prescription — they don’t. You will be denied entry if you try to bring CBD or medical marijuana into the listed parks. And, it’s strongly advised that you avoid sneaking CBD and medical marijuana into the parks. Some people have been prosecuted for having these items once in the park. If CBD is a necessity for you, consider taking a trip to a Busch Gardens’ park or Seaworld instead.

CBG, CBN “Are Coming in a Big Way”

According to the Hemp Industry Daily Conference (HIDC), both CBG and CBN are gaining ground, and fast. CBG, of course, is the preliminary form of CBD, THC, and CBC. CBN, on the other hand, is a derivative of THC. Both CBG and CBN have some similar benefits to CBD, including the fact that they’re anti-inflammatory and have neuroprotective properties. With the rising prevalence of self-care and self-help, too, it seems as though CBD and its family of remedies will continue to trend positively.

FDA Releases Guidelines for Cannabis-Related Research, But CBD Will Have to Wait

So, researchers studying and developing drugs with cannabis now have a clearer idea of the approval process, which mirrors that for all other drugs. But what does this mean for the CBD industry and the safety of CBD products? In short, the official guidelines are still TBA, and we will update you as soon as there’s more information. The FDA is hoping to create a comprehensive framework and “do their due diligence” since CBD is being incorporated into such a wide variety of products.

Charlotte’s Web CBD Brand Unveils Striking Hemp Mural in Wheat Crop

While not the first large-scale artwork dedicated to hemp from Charlotte’s Web, it is just as impressive. Charlotte’s Web wanted the mural, located in a 76-acre Kansas wheat field, to speak to one of the brand’s values, to “trust the earth.” The brand also wanted to raise awareness and promote equal access to CBD products in every U.S. state. Charlotte’s Web also had a hemp mural painted on a building in Brooklyn.
