CBD Poised To Dominate
CBD related products are changing the
(BPT) Short for cannabidiol, CBD is grabbing
headlines every day. Long known to be a benefi-
cial ingredient for health and wellness, now it¡¯s
coming to the beauty industry.
Why is it grabbing headlines? Because of its anti-
inflammatory, soothing and anti-aging properties,
which make the oil an ideal solution to transform
your beauty routine, from hair products to lotions
to facial oils.
If you¡¯re thinking, ¡°Wait, cannabis? That¡¯s mari-
juana, right?¡± Yes and no. Though CBD is found in
cannabis, it is legal, it won¡¯t get you high and you
will pass your drug test with flying colors. That¡¯s
because CBD does not contain THC, the ingredient
in cannabis that produces the ¡®high¡¯ effect.
Kevin Wachs, CEO and co-founder of Earthly Body,
offers some of the beauty areas where this oil is
having the biggest impact.

Currently, the 116th Congress is considering
multiple bills aimed at medical cannabis; however,
none of them is focused solely on medicinal hemp,
the one element that could legally be pushed
through thanks to the Farm Bill.

Danyluk founded Warfighter Hemp in 2017 after

rines. His last tour was working wounded issues
at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center,
which opened his eyes to the opioid impact on
veterans. He knew there had to be a better solu-
He¡¯s working with legislators to introduce the
2019 Medicinal Hemp Research Act, which would
allow the VA to study CBD derived from industrial
hemp and ultimately prescribe CBD as it currently
does other supplements.
¡°CBD derived from industrial hemp can be eas-
ily sourced and provided to veterans and anyone
suffering from chronic pain. We have hundreds of
testimonials that it works. We now need Congress
to do the work to pass a bill forcing the VA to
study it,¡± said Danyluk.
Warfighter Hemp grows its hemp on Colorado¡¯s
largest organic hemp farm. This 100 percent
organic, U.S. grown hemp results in high-quality
CBD, of critical importance, as some CBD is
shipped from overseas under unknown conditions.
Fifty percent of Warfighter Hemp proceeds go to
support veteran charities.
