LAS VEGAS, July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HempMeds, the world's largest distributor of award-winning CBD-rich hemp oil products, is headed to Vegas as a sponsor of the CHAMPS trade show July 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Representatives from HempMeds will be at CHAMPS demoing and selling CBD-rich hemp oil products to retailers who are registered attendees of the business-to-business expo. HempMeds™ Director of Public Relations, Andrew Hard, will be available to answer questions about controversial state CBD-only laws and CBD-rich hemp oil product availability dispelling a myth that there is a shortage of the product in the US.
Including Nevada, 23 states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws on the books. Eleven other states have since enacted cannabidiol (CBD)-only laws – but industry insiders want consumers to take a closer look at problems that these CBD-only laws create.
Formerly an investigative journalist, Hard is speaking out about these new CBD-only laws and states, "While 'CBD-only' laws may make medical marijuana easier to talk about and consider for use by people of all ages, we caution the public to delve much deeper into the topic. First, CBD is only one of at least 85 known cannabinoids. 'CBD-only' laws prevent those who want access to the other 84 cannabinoids – not THC or just CBD – or what we and many others refer to as the 'whole plant.' 'CBD-only' laws are truly unfair to those individuals. HempMeds™ fully supports 'access for all.' For now, we are very proud to make our CBD-rich hemp oil products available to all."
The CBD-rich hemp oil products that HempMeds™ distributes nationwide include CBD-rich Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (or RSHO™); Cibdex™ brand vegan capsules or tincture drops in 500mg and 100mg concentrations and choice of unflavored, peppermint or vanilla; and Cibaderm™ shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, hand cream and salve.
"As a matter of policy, we believe in everyone's right to have access to medical marijuana," Hard continues. "However, in the case of CBD-only laws, we are one of the few companies that meets all of the specifications and requirements to offer a viable product that is immediately available in all 50 states and more than 40 other countries. HempMeds'™ parent company has taken seven years of due diligence and millions of dollars in order to supply the world with these innovative products within existing laws."
During the CHAMPS buyers' trade show held July 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, HempMeds™ can be found at exhibit #500. Nearly 400 exhibitors are slated to attend, according to the organization's website. CHAMPS has been a staple business-to-business buyer's expo in the "counter culture" industry for fifteen years. Inventors bring the latest and most advanced products to CHAMPS to unveil. Admission requirements can be found at www.CHAMPStradeshows.com; ticketed attendees are invited to visit the HempMeds™ booth and discuss the latest happenings in the cannabis industry.
"With HempMeds™, quality starts with proprietary licensed seeds. Generational farmers cultivate and harvest them into all-natural, non-GMO industrial hemp," states Hard. "No pesticides are ever used in the process that takes place in Europe; multiple agencies then approve the hemp oil for export. Once in the US, the CBD-rich hemp oil is re-tested to ensure quality and consistency, then is tested once more during manufacturing and post-manufacturing. With every order, consumers continually rely on HempMeds™ for quality and consistency. From our farmers to our formulators and the entire worldwide operation, everyone at HempMeds™ is extremely proud to be a global supplier of multi-award-winning CBD-rich hemp oil products. We will continue to do our part to educate consumers about CBD-rich hemp oil availability and convey the message of 'access for all.'"
Hard is available for in-studio interviews with these innovative CBD-rich hemp oil products.
