Let’s be real honest about something and chances are I’m gonna piss off a lot of people who continue to lie to themselves about why they use cannabis today. While there truly are those that use cannabis for ‘medicinal purposes,’ the majority of the industry was typically full of consumers looking to get simply get high.
How else do you explain the culture of consumers sporting marijuana leaf socks, tattooed girls attempting to dress up as sexy 420 nurses and Instagram posts showing who can take the ‘phattest’ dab? This is far from the sterile doctors clinics or even incense-filled holistic medicinal spas.
One of the biggest reasons we were interested in taking a more serious look at Cannabidiol (CBD) products was because of the real medicinal value and claims being made. While the THC community has continued to claim (without real scientific evidence) that THC is required for CBD to be truly effective, our research is proving otherwise. Of course, we like THC as well and we enjoy taking a dab every now and then, but our true interest lies in the medical potential of cannabis.
While many new companies have entered into the CBD industry, affordability continues to be a challenge. Families that are financially prepared typically have premium health coverage, access to top notch doctors and can afford expensive prescription drugs. But what about the families that are looking for CBD as an alternative because prescription drugs aren’t working and aren’t wealthy? In addition, due to the legal status of cannabis, these products are not FDA approved nor are they covered by Insurance. Chances are, this is a bigger percentage of the population.
When we met with CBD Complete Wellness, we stated that we had to achieve the following goals for this project to be a success:
- Products need to be safe and transparent to patients,
- Testing, focus groups and efficacy reports need to be conducted,
- Pricing needs to be affordable for all families in need.
As we have begun development of vitamin-enhanced CBD products with CBD Complete Wellness, we’re shocked at the pricing strategies being used by many of the existing CBD companies today. It’s exciting to know that we will be helping CBD Complete Wellness produce an entire line of CBD products that are scientifically formulated, university tested and roughly half the price of the majority of CBD brands on the market today.
In addition, www.giveCBD.com is an online marketplace that will begin selling CBD products with the intent of donating 10% of their profits to provide subsidies and FREE CBD products to families that are in need and qualify for financial assistance.
