“All Men Must Die” But Not Necessarily Out Of Anxiety

Published

Game of thrones CBD

Now that the ‘Long Night’ is long gone and the entire Seven Kingdoms is eagerly awaiting ‘The Last War,’ its only obvious for all Game Of Throne fanatics to have sleepless nights thinking about who finally sits on the Iron Throne. The fact that only two episodes remain of this epic saga, ‘n’ number of unanswered questions are further adding to the anxiety of fans who are constantly brainstorming over what happens next. In such a scenario, the emotionally drained fans have started finding solitude in the calming attributes of a particular CBD oil which has recently gained popularity by the name of Lord Jones.

 

Calm Before The Storm

With two dragons down, the stakes are getting higher for Daenerys Stormborn to claim her rightful throne at Kings Landing. Getting to know about the real identity of John Snow and losing her two closest acquaintances in the last two episodes is also making things worse for her. The same can also be said about the GoT fans who can be seen contemplating theories and watching YouTube videos to gain an edge over the hidden clues of the current episode and a trailer breakdown of the upcoming one.

This caused a substantial rise in the level of anxiety which was effectively catered to by Lord Jones which is a luxury CBD product brand. You can see a massive surge in Instagram tags for this brand every Sunday night as the global GoT community starts preparing to bid adieu to their favorite characters in the most gruesome manner.

 

Founder Speak

Robert Rosenheck, the founder of Lord Jones revealed to HuffPost that, “We are all huge GoT fans and were delighted when we saw a bumper crop of social media posts from our fans last Sunday showcasing their favorite Lord Jones products they used to get through the epic Battle for Winterfell.”

 

Role Of CBD

Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive ingredient which can be traced in marijuana plant. According to Rosenheck, CBD has proven to be effective in relieving pain and anxiety on being ingested. It can also calm your senses and stabilize your mood which is why GoT fans can be seen seeking out its assistance in between intense episodes. As each new episode is bringing upon dramatic roller-coaster of emotions, backstabbing and never ending questions, Lord Jones is serving as the ultimate nirvana for the stressed-out crowd.

 

Potential Of CBD

Although adequate scientific evidence is not present in favour of the effect of CBD on human anatomy, it has found a large audience base on a global scale. The biggest trigger of its popularity has been achieved through word of mouth as well as FOMO. Be it the biggest celebrities or sports athletes, CBD can be seen spreading its wings in everyone’s life pretty rapidly. Maybe this is why an acute rise in its demand can be seen and manufacturers are obliging to the same in the form of CBD-infused gummies, oils, lotions, pills and several other products which can help counteract anxiety and stress. CBD is also known to have certain anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties which is why it is increasingly being demanded by people suffering from sore muscles, arthritis, period cramps and chronic pain.

 

Lord Jones had gained mass popularity previously for being one of “2019′s best CBD products that are the real deal” as well as a brand which churns out “the CBD lotion that celebrities rub on their feet” for standing pretty on their heels throughout the length and breadth of a red-carpet event. The future of CBD in the light of legislative decisions is uncertain just like the ultimate ruler of Seven Kingdoms. Only time can determine what happens in both Westeros and our real world over due course.

Walmart and Target entering CBD industry

As confusion keeps on bubbling over the legality of CBD, big-box retailers are preparing themselves for entering the arena with a bang the day it gets branded with a legal tag. Top executives of market magnets like Target and Walmart have been meeting up with the manufacturers of topical creams, gummy bears, drinks and oils infused with CBD or
cannabidiol.

What Is CBD

CBD is extracted from marijuana plants but does not have THC content which is otherwise infamous for making us feel high post-consumption. Although massive controversies have taken shape regarding the legality of CBD, it has proved to usher in a calming effect which is helpful in relieving all signs of insomnia, anxiety and even pain.

Interest Of Manufacturers

Big supermarkets like Safeway and Kroger are inquiring about CBD product samples apart from it’s pricing information and lab results. This is happening despite the fact that the FDA ruled out the addition of CBD or THC in food and beverages in December. Transportation of this controversial chemical over state lines has also been prohibited by FDA rules. Christian Graversen, the brand manager of California-based CBDfx revealed that “We are
flying around the country, talking to all the big guys at their headquarters.” This 6-year-old the company holds more than 50 CBD-infused product variants under its kitty inclusive of a $10 package of eight gummy bears. Graversen further added that “We are going multiple times to the same companies, meeting with their senior buyers, legal departments and merchandising executives.”

Future Prospects

In spite of having an uncertain future, CBD definitely holds superb prospects in days to come which is causing more and more manufacturers to line up for basking in its benefits. According to experts, the net worth of the CBD industry is expected to reach $2.1 billion within the next year. The main reason behind this is the eagerness of consumers to shell out premium rates for CBD-infused products be it for treating ADHD or arthritis. Bigger chains like CVS, Walgreens, and GNC have started selling CBD-infused topical creams targeted at curing pain and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. These are being sold in States like New York which have received the green signal for the same. Walmart issued a statement elaborating on its CBD strategy by pointing out that, “We do not have plans to
carry CBD products at this time.”

A Target spokesperson revealed that “Like many companies, we know there is consumer interest in CBD products, and the conversation is evolving quickly. We’re following the discussion, but currently,  don’t have any immediate plans to carry them.” Other than carrying out proper due diligence, the chain is also devising plans for selling CBD.
Michael Kirban, the chief executive of Vita Coco was quoted as saying, “The major retailers are [designing] shelves, laying out space where CBD products will sit in their stores, but they aren’t buying any product yet.” This renowned coconut water brand is all set to roll-out a hemp-infused drink this summer. However, Kirban pointed out that this rollout will happen only in smaller stores as the bigger retailers are eagerly awaiting a permanent FDA the ruling of marijuana-based products which has a bleak chance of happening before this year
end.

In spite of gaining worldwide popularity for its inherent health benefits, CBD oil is still an extremely unwelcome object at Disney World – “The Most Magical Place On Earth.” 69 year old North Carolina resident Hester Jordan Burkhalter came to know about the same in a harsh manner when she was arrested by the park authorities for possessing the controversial chemical.

 

Park Tour Gone Wrong

 The great-grandmother was found to possess “illegal narcotics believed to be THC oil” on April 15th by the security officers at Disney World. This was confirmed by an arrest affidavit issued by the concerned authorities. The cannabis-based product was found in her purse by an off-duty Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputy in a glass bottle. It contained a peppermint CBD tincture containing next to none THC content which is infamous for making you feel high after consuming marijuana and similar products.

 

Arthritis Cure

Burkhalter had been planning the Disney World trip since the last two years and ultimately got the chance to make it happen last month along with her family. However, the felony charge led her to face 12 hours’ custody confinement apart from the levy of a $2000 bond. All this happened in spite of Burkhalter carrying a doctor’s note subscribing the usage of the CBD tonic for her arthritis pain. She was quoted as saying that, “I have really bad arthritis in my legs, in my arms and in my shoulder. I use (CBD oil) for the pain because it helps.”

 

A Look At The Turn Of Events

Deputy Vernon Lebron”was working in an off duty capacity at Magic Kingdom” on 15th April when he was suddenly notified by a park security personnel about someone being in possession of illegal narcotics. While inspecting her purse, Lebron enquired whether the product contained THC and Burkhalter refused to answer his question. According to the report, Lebron used a “marijuana presumptive drug test kit” to test whether the bottle contained THC. The positive outcome of the test indicated at the euphoric chemical component of the bottle which ultimately lead to Burkhalter’s arrest.

 

Legislative Confusion Over CBD

Industrial hemp was legalized by the 2018 Federal law and given the same standing as that of an agricultural product. This has led to the free sale of CBD-infused products in the Sunshine State. In spite of that, it has not gained a legal footing in Florida. State lawmakers are trying to create a proper industrial regulatory framework in the aftermath of passing the hemp bill. However, it needs the signature of Gov. Ron DeSantis for gaining the solid footing of being treated as law.

 

Bottom Line

Burkhalter revealed that she “didn’t know what to think” while being arrested. She further added that, “I’ve never had one speeding ticket in my life.” Her attorney Jennifer Synnamon pointed out that, “a little drop of oil, with the CBD, is a felony. Meanwhile, you can have up to 19.9 grams of leaf-marijuana, and it’s a first degree misdemeanor.” All charges against Burkhalter were dropped ultimately.

oreos entering CBD

Mondelez International, the parent company of Oreo, Chips Ahoy and Nutter Butter is a food industry mammoth which is weighing out its options for entering into the world of CBD. The Oreo maker wishes to cash in on this latest trend by adding a brand-new flavour to its existing menu chart which is bound to make the game more entertaining in upcoming days. CEO Dirk Van de Put was recently quoted as saying that, “Yes, we’re getting ready, but we obviously want to stay within what is legal and play it the right way.”

What Is CBD

Cannabidiol or CBD is a chemical which is derived from marijuana and hemp. However, it contains low levels of THC compound which does not make you feel high after its consumption. CBD is also believed to bring along certain therapeutic benefits which has led to its worldwide popularity for curing inflammation, seizure, anxiety and insomnia.

Clash Of Farm Bill& FDA

 The farm bill signed by President Donald Trump in December 2018 legalized the usage of products containing CBD. However, the Food and Drug Administration has stringently prohibited its addition in food or beverages. Van de Put was further quoted as saying that, “The space is not clear. It’s a bit clearer in non-food products. In food products, I’m hoping that the FDA will bring some clarity in the coming months.”

CBD- The Hottest Trend Of 2019

The massive popularity of CBD amongst people of all age groups have led brands to explore new options of benefitting out of the same. While everyone is trying to cure depression and similar problems which are slowly evolving into the reality of our mechanical world, CBD infused gastronomic wonders surely seem like a delightful solution to the same. Cannabis-infused foods and drinks has also been listed as the latest catchword by the annual report of National Restaurant Association. Maybe this is why more and more brands are trying to plan out their product lines around the same.

Uncertainty Of Future

Marijuana for sure holds the key to opening the floodgate for massive profits in days to come. But this is more of a catch-22 situation in reality. The food industry is more focused on the adverse impacts which THC – the active marijuana compound might have on the health of people consuming the same. They will continue to be wary about its usability unless proper research studies are conducted on the same.

Legalization Troubles Continue

The legalization of marijuana in different states also stand out as another big hurdle in the expansion plans of business houses. Although marijuana has been legalized in 34 states, 12 of them have imposed various restrictions on its possession and usage which has led to further chaos and confusion. A big gap is generating between the expectation of industries and the operation of government concerning this issue. If the gap keeps on growing, then it might be difficult for manufacturers to benefit out of this trend. Medicinal marijuana users will also be adversely impacted if things take a downturn.

What Happens Next

 Although the Food and Drug Administration has not regulated cannabis-infused products in an official manner, it is planning to hold public hearings on the same in the coming month. A large number of start-ups as well as established manufacturers have taken the risk and launched their CBD infused beverages and edibles.

Maybe this is why market players like Mondelez are dealing with the matter in a careful way. Although the sumptuous snacks are most likely to hit the shelves in “not-so-far future,” you need to wait for some time before getting your hands on the same as the CBD chemical might not be in harmony with the family friendly brand image of the company.
