Hemp Movement to discontinue Super Hemp CBD; endorses Plus CBD

The Food Movement  first came to being in 2011.  Through our unique relationship with our friend Stuart Tomc, we were able to be one of the first companies to bring the legal and safe dietary supplement CBD (cannabidiol) to the health food market in our sister company the Hemp Movement, and the product Super Hemp CBD.Super-Hemp-Plus-CBD.jpg

At this point in the evolution of CBD in the natural marketplace, it has become clear to us that there is only one company to support going forward – and that is the brand Plus CBD by CV Sciences.  The only company pursuing clinical work, true GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status – and the main brand selling THE REAL CBD.  Not trying to convince you that you need “something else” with marketing and misdirection.  In the Endo-Cannabinoid system, there is no “alternative” to CBD any more than there is an “alternative” to the key to the lock on your front door.

In light of that kind of misinformation, I wanted to make this announcement as a service to all of the people who might get the wrong idea through rumors or innuendo.  Super Hemp CBD is not being discontinued, in so much as the identical (actually slightly improved with the addition of extra virgin olive oil) product is now available from CV Sciences, and is available in the best health food stores everywhere including throughout the Midwest from the Hemp Heroes at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market.

The Food Movement will continue to make the finest organic super foods, bioactive food-based dietary supplements and other great products such as our new Boneless Broth.  Thank you to everyone who has helped to bring this potentially life-saving plant-based nutrient to more people, and helped to distinguish a safe, legal dietary supplement from its cousin mary jane.  May God bless plant medicine and the continued education of our species.

CannaVest releases letter to stockholders addressing ‘Hustlers of Hemp’ smear article

CBD (cannabidiol) seems to be such a promising new dietary supplement, especially as a super-critically extracted compound from industrial hemp. The pioneering health food store brand Super Hemp CBD, made with Plus CBD Oil from CannaVest and exclusively distributed by the Food Movement Co. in Illinois, has been very well-received due to the purity and 0.00% THC content of the product.

So, the letter to stockholders and customers just released by CannaVest’s CEO Michael Mona, Jr. may seem somewhat surprising.  In the letter he officially responds to a recently-released smear article titled ‘Hustlers of Hemp’ by saying “Our industry as a whole is subject to numerous attacks, and typically we do not merit such attacks with a response. In this instance, where the quality and safety of our products is attacked, we owe it to our customers and stockholders to respond.” Read the full text of the letter here.

From my work on CBD with the Hemp Movement, I can tell you that Super Hemp CBD, made with Plus CBD Oil is substantiated by very reputable cutting edge testing methods.  This is why we can assure that the product is indeed solvent-free because of the superior super-critical extraction method. Project CBD claims to be a third-party project, but according to Mona’s letter evidence indicates that Project CBD is little more than a marketing ploy by competitive products; in particular some which are marketed through multi-level networking channels or ‘pyramid schemes’; and have be known to slander competitors with similar smear campaigns and dirty business tactics.

In the end, I personally feel that those of us taking the ‘higher road’ of making products which pass credible third-party standards have already risen to the top as the product which belongs in the hands of the discerning consumer or health food store.  In the short run, we give some attention to these attacks by responding.  Ultimately, customers deserve to know the truth and products like Super Hemp CBD with a product that is guaranteed to be safe and legal, as opposed to the ‘whole Cannabis only’ platform which Project CBD claims to represent.  Certainly in the interest of natural medicine, and particularly in states where medical marijuana is not an option, the non-psychoactive CBD seems to hold promise for many families and individuals.
