Potential Razor Hidden in California Assembly Bill 228 Threatens to Slash at CBD-Rich Cannabis Producers

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.

Confusion Surrounding Hemp Legalization Doesn’t Bode Well for Future Federal Cannabis Reform

Watching how badly the federal government is bungling something as simple as CBD makes us fear for the future of cannabis. If you thought states could screw it up, wait until Uncle Sam gets his hands on it.

Hemp Derived CBD is Everywhere but Where is it Coming From?

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.

Clearing the Haze: Does the 2018 Farm Bill Legalize CBD in all 50 States or Not?

There are many beneficial uses for hemp, but these days most of the headlines swirl around CBD, the non-psychoactive healing cannabinoid that can be bred in relative abundance in hemp plants. 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?

California Moves to Make CBD, Like THC, an Investor-Class Industry

Earlier this month the California Department of Public Health Food & Drug Branch (CDPH-FDB) set a dangerous new precedent by strongly stating that absolutely no hemp-derived CBD is allowed to be added to any sort of food or beverage to be sold in the state. We break it down.

And So It Begins... 7/11 Inks Deal to Place CBD Products in 4500 Stores

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.

Today 7-11 announced another hot product launch that, despite what you may think, will not get you high but will be a complete game-changer – hemp derived CBD products.
