Company’s New Line of Hemp-Based, THC-Free Products Highlights Growing Promise of Cannabidiol

Several prominent medical marijuana companies are focusing on what they see as the wave of the future in the MMJ industry: products infused with cannabidiol, or CBD.

The marijuana compound offers some of the pain-relieving benefits of THC, without the psychoactive effects. In other words, you don’t get stoned. Studies show that CBDs can help with a variety of medical conditions, including anxiety, nausea, inflammation and convulsions.

Just as importantly, hemp-based CBD products are legal in the United States, meaning patients don’t need to live in a state with MMJ laws and don’t have to worry about the government knocking on their door.

Dixie Elixirs & Edibles is the latest firm in the medical marijuana industry to jump on the trend. The Denver-based company – which is now part of Medical Marijuana Inc. – is preparing to roll out a new line of hemp-based CBD products including tinctures, salves and capsules. Dixie will officially launch the product line tomorrow and expects to add new CBD offerings at a rapid clip going forward, hoping to tap what it says is a $5 billion market.

The company initially will sell the products to dispensaries but then plans to make them available to the general public via mail order and an online e-commerce platform.

Other MMJ players are taking an interest in cannabidiols as well. Medical Marijuana Inc. has taken an aggressive approach to CBD research, filing a patent last year for a process to extract cannabidiol and other cannabinoids from cannabis. It also inked a deal to distribute CBD-infused beverages. At the same time, individual dispensaries are producing high-CBD strains, and C3 Patients Association is distributing a CBD-infused pill called Idrasil. Most of these products are only available to card-carrying patients in MMJ states, however, as they contain CBDs derived from cannabis and in many cases also contain THC.

    Although the companies who are selling CBD extracted from hemp claim it is legal The feds, (DEA et al.) say that’s not so. And I’m sure these companies know that cannabinoids extracted from cannabis sativa ( hemp ) meet the definition of ILLEGAL. It will be just a matter of time and the hammer will fall on those unlucky enough to invest in the marketing of these products.
