The actress is working with the founders of luxury CBD company Lord Jones to launch the company’s first brand extension, Happy Dance, later this year.

Kristen Bell’s turning her love of CBD into her own brand-new skincare line.

The actress, who’s been open about her experience using Lord Jones CBD Body Lotion as her workout savior, is teaming up with the company to launch a new, lower-priced hemp-derived CBD skin and personal care collection called Happy Dance in fall 2020.

“I first discovered Lord Jones CBD products two years ago and have been using them ever since,” Bell said. “I was skeptical at first, but was quickly blown away by the quality, integrity and consistency in all of the products.”

Let’s be blunt: Florida’s marijuana business continues to grow. Pot proponents were attempting to get recreational use on the ballot for 2022 as of this writing. And we’re continuing to hear more about cannabis-sourced products.

CBD is over-the-counter. You don’t need a card for it. It doesn’t get you high. But many folks — and an increasing number of studies — say it’s useful in treating everything from aches and pains to acne. And its absorption rates apparently rise when you put it in the food.

They do it every day at Fort Myers’ Seed & Bean Café and Market, where co-founder Cole Peacock has been espousing the joys of hemp via all kinds of lifestyle products — from clothing to recycled dog bowls, “Florida’s only cannabis café and marketplace.”

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA.

This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. Our attorneys track these developments in real-time on behalf of multiple clients, and we provide those clients with a 50-state matrix showing how states regulate hemp and hemp products.

In light of the rapidly evolving legislative changes, we are also presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-derived cannabidiol (Hemp CBD). Today we turn to Virginia.

Earlier this year, the Virginia Department

With May being Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, there is no better time to honor the intersection of Asian American culture and cannabis consumption. I interviewed a small handful of Asian business leaders in the cannabis industry to learn about their own experiences with cannabis and gain insight about their thoughts on the cultural changes occurring within the space today.

CANNABIS CULTURE – The 19th century French Physician Francois Lallemand (1790-1854) was one of the first people in France to write about his experiences with hashish in Asia. Lallemand submitted a thesis on the subject for the Doctor of Medicine degree in 1839.

His book, Le Hachych, appeared in 1843. Lallemand was a well-known surgeon and republican socialist and Le Hachych was the first European work to use the drug as its basic plot device. The work purports to be a translation from an Arabic manuscript which the author has discovered in his cabin whilst sailing for Marseille. It veers between the sensational and the doctrinal, particularly in its fundamental conceit that hashish not only provides consolation for the present, but an intimation and aspect of the future.

As Dr. Ronald K. Siegel noted “A later edition appeared in 1848 with the cumbersome title The 1848 Political and Social Revolution Predicted in 1843, at which point Lallemand was a member of the Academy of Sciences and honorary professor at the University of Montpellier. Hashish provided Lallemand with a utopian vision of the future that was uncannily accurate in many detailed facts.” For example, in one hashish experience reprinted and translated

Rest days are very important for people who work out regularly. The more people physically exert themselves, the more they realize how important these days off are, whether they’re doing active recovery or spending the day chilling out. Can cannabis play a role in this downtime?

All workouts cause stress to the body, tearing muscles and causing inflammation. Although this process sounds a little disturbing, it’s a good thing since it allows the muscle to rebuild itself and grow stronger (let alone the benefits your body experiences as a result of fat loss and improved cardiovascular health).

There’s been no scientific research conducted on cannabis and its effect on your body after working out, but there’s a growing community of people who enjoy working out while high, reporting better results thanks to the herb.
