We are all about safe access for all, especially when it comes to the medicinal use of cannabis or hemp. Lower priced hemp products are not inherently bad, and those that are farmed and produced ethically need to have a place in the market but this feels like a deadly blow to the already niche market of CBD-rich cannabis production in California and that is scary.Read More
At Beard Bros. Pharms we fully appreciate the need for and the benefits of CBD. We also prefer to see it as part of a true full spectrum medicine but we realize that we are still a few steps away from seeing that sort of medicine being sold legally nationwide. Our biggest concern with the current hemp-derived CBD marketplace is the stunning lack of regulation that has been put in place before and since the sudden passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Now, take a screenshot because you will not see us asking for more regulations very often! While we do not agree with how the state of California has rushed to implement mandated lab testing on legal cannabis products, we still see the absolute need for such testing, and the same goes for other controversial programs such as track & trace. You have to have programs like these, in some shape or form, in order to provide a level playing field for cultivators, manufacturers, and retailers and a safe marketplace for consumers.Read More

In the wake of the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill we have seen conflicting news stories about just what this new law will mean for the highly popular cannabinoid, particularly on a nationwide scale. So what about hemp-derived CBD, now that hemp cultivation will be legal?Read More

On Wednesday we got an early scoop that Colorado-based CBD producer Phoenix Tears Wellness had signed a deal with a distribution company named MarketHub Retail who had an alleged commitment from the corporate giant 7/11 to place hemp derived CBD products on the shelves of 4500 convenience stores by the end of 2018.
This, obviously, would be huge news and sure enough more outlets began to break the story as the day went on. It wasn’t long, however, before a spokesperson for 7/11 made an official statement and that took the story down an entirely different path.Read More
For a long time, the only place to get Hi-Chews around here was the 7/11 convenience store. Those delicious terp-filled candies, despite their name, do not actually get you hi(gh), but were always worth the trip.
