May 2020 Quick Hits

Time for a couple of horses, a little Jane Fonda, and a ton of research. Here’s everything you need to know from the CBD industry from the past month. We’ve got it all for you, right here on Direct CBD Online.

The Hempire’s Research Shows the 22 Benefits of CBD

Ever since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the FDA’s approval of CBD-derived pharmaceutical, Epidiolex, just about everyone’s interest in CBD intensified. The Hempire was created to provide educational resources and help consumers to make more informed decisions. Hempire’s work and findings indicate 22 benefits of CBD that address a wide range of concerns. This includes CBD’s potential to address chronic pain, obesity and diabetes, heart health, bone health, sleep patterns, and mood regulation. While these are wonderful developments, whether or not CBD is right for everyone will depend on a case-by-case basis. It’s important to talk to your doctor before adding CBD into your routine — no matter what research is available.

Common Health Problems in Horses and Benefits of CBD Oil for Horses

We’ve discussed a little bit of what CBD can do for animals before on Direct CBD Online, including horses. Whether you’re just curious or you own horses, you may be aware of the health problems they’re prone to. Horses can suffer from a lot of the same conditions humans are turning to CBD for. This includes stress and anxiety, arthritis, and digestive, skin, and respiratory problems. Horses are particularly prone to skin infections from having wet skin, known as rain scald. CBD (and CBG) both are shown to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Consult your veterinarian prior to giving your pets CBD. If you’re searching for safe products, be sure to shop for high-quality options that are THC-free.

Exploring CBN & CBG Isolate

Yes, there are even more cannabinoids to explore! We’ve talked a bit about CBG already, including the benefits of CBG and its relationship to CBD. CBG is special because it’s essentially the mother of all other cannabinoids. CBG is important, too, for its antibacterial properties. However, if you’re looking for CBG isolate products, they aren’t too common yet. If you’re looking for a bit of CBG, its typically present in full-spectrum formulations. On the other hand, CBN is a little different. CBN is being researched particularly as a sleep aid. It’s synthesized from THC instead, which makes it mildly psychoactive.

Check out this CBN oil from Bloom Farms — we particularly love the packaging! Plus, they donate a meal for a food-insecure family with every purchase. 

Jane Fonda Announced as Brand Ambassador for CBD Brand, Uncle Bud’s

LA-based CBD brand, Uncle Bud’s, caught the attention of Jane Fonda, making the partnership a natural next step.

“Wellness has always been incredibly important to me and these hemp-based products recently caught my attention. They’re eco-friendly, cruelty-free and, most importantly, effective!” Fonda said.

Fonda wasn’t entirely certain of her feelings when the brand first approached her. But then, after a few months of using their skin creams, hand sanitizers, muscle-ache formulas, and lip balms, she became a fast fan. She also admires the brand’s efforts to donate hand sanitizers and supplies to the local homeless population.

That about covers what went on in the world of CBD over the past month! We hope you all are getting some more time in the sun and enjoy the start of summer.
