Sometimes, it’s just easier to let others talk about CBD

CBD Is natural not man made, don't let FDA take it over for pharma

Some of the most important benefits of cannabis oil include its ability to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, increase appetite and optimize digestion, reduce pain, prevent certain types of cancers, strengthen heart health and protect the skin.

CBD and Cannabinoids are becoming far more popular as the medical community coupled with skilled researchers are finding more plausible ways to employ cannabinoids to aid human (and animal) health. Although some uses of CBD have still been unproven as far as even cursory effectiveness - other applications of Cannabinoids have shown significant positive impact on health.

From time to time, we uncover third party information on CBD and other components of the hemp oil extracts which we will share with our readers. Please feel free to share this article in social media and in other locations (like email to your friends who don't believe that hemp has any health benefits!).

Facebook Declares War on the CBD and Hemp Oil Extract Retail World

Facebook and other Social media sites quietly Shutting down Competition of Big Pharma

Facebook Responds to Small Businesses: Go Away

Everyone thought it was a big deal when President Donald Trump signed into law the 2018 Farm Bill. Many small businesses offering natural botanical extract products (in the form of CBD and other cannabinoids) were celebrating the passage of the law which effectively cleared some of the last ambiguities covering the growth, processing and distribution of very low or Zero THC products. However, this celebration was short-lived for many retailers - Hemp Oil Rockstar included.

Facebook screws the little guy to favor Big Pharma and the Drug Industry

Hemp Oil Rockstar's Facebook Page

Hemp Oil Rockstar Gets Kicked Off of Facebook

The Hemp Oil Rockstar Facebook Page didn't even get to celebrate its first birthday when Facebook overlords unceremoniously unpublished the page from the Facebook platform. Hemp Oil Rockstar's Facebook page was removed because it was said to "Promote the sale of prescription pharmaceuticals..."

"That's absolute hogwash!" Said Mary Lòpez Carter, the founder of Hemp Oil Rockstar and the sister sites and retail store chain, Carolina Hemp Huts. "They're going after the little guy because there's nothing we can do against the action. They have a big sandbox and they don't care who they kick out." The Team at Hemp Oil Rockstar even checked for posts that may have made reference to the prescription drug industry and could find none. A simple post (indicated below) stating the stance of Hemp Oil Rockstar was also ineffective in providing the stay of execution needed..

Hemp Oil Rockstar and Carolina Hemp Huts have been doing wonderfully in recent months from a traffic perspective. Much of this is believed to be attributed to the increase in popularity of the more natural option of Hemp Oil Extract products by people who prefer to use more organic and less synthetic solutions to common maladies. Much like Salicylic acid, which once was considered to be a natural solution to help fight pain as an analgesic (Salicylic acid is a phenolic compound commonly found in plants where it plays a role of plant growth regulator and also as a signal molecule mediating in plant defense against pathogens. Most of the Salicylic  acid came from willow bark and was used to ease pain and reduce fevers. The drug industry, notably Beyer of pre-war Germany, made enormous fortunes by refining the production of the acid to produce Aspirin.

Since the introduction of EPIDIOLEX® (cannabidiol) by Greenwich Biosciences, Inc and the passage of the Farm Bill, Facebook and others (YouTube has been quietly shutting down Pro Industrial Hemp channels) have increased their attack on small "mom and pop" providers of the more natural forms of Hemp Oil Extracts and cannabidiol.

Hemp Oil Rockstar Gets Kicked Off of Facebook

"Even though we know that Facebook is very heavy-handed and has little care for small businesses, we hope they change their mind," said Mary after receiving word from Facebook of the Denied Appeal shortly after filing the original appeal. "It's pretty clear that they're not doing much to thwart the will of the deep pocketed companies."

Lexington attorney Jonathan Miller, who is general counsel for the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, said this has happened over the last six years to several hemp-related businesses on Facebook. And there probably isn’t anything that can be done.

“Where we have seen a consistent issue is on the advertising side, where companies have tried to sell products and been rejected. I’m told marijuana companies have had fewer problems,” Miller said. “We’ve been hoping the passage of the Farm Bill would change that, because now it takes away the underlying argument that it violates the Controlled Substances Act.”

Small businesses such as Hemp Oil Rockstar and Carolina Hemp Hut are very careful not to make medical claims in their print and online media, instead allowing for customers to speak of the benefits. "We will say it may help alleviate discomfort," Mary explained. "We don't use terms like pain, or disease, since the pharmaceutical companies would be all over any statement that included those words. If a customer tells others something like "Hemp Oil Rockstar has CBD oil which helped me feel better and pain free" we'd be happy for our customer. But, these claims are not made by the employees or staff of the small businesses.

The Beat Goes on: Another of the Same Scam – Beware!

Don't buy from dishonest internet scams. Buy from quality vendors of CBD

ProCanna is not a GOOD Value. NOT AT ALL

I broke down some of the scam-oriented brands in earlier videos. Hemp Oil Extracts can easily get the attention of unsuspecting shoppers because there's a rising interest in Cannabidiol (CBD) and other Hemp Oil Extract products. With the recent passage of the Farm Bill, there is an increase in interest in all things cannabis, especially CBD and related compounds.

At Hemp Oil Rockstar, we scour the internet for products and perform research on many items in hopes of cataloging a nice spectrum of products which may prove to be good choices of consumers. We compare prices, Certificates of Analysis, consumer surveys and more to help assess what products are better than average for consumers of Hemp Oil extract products. In this effort, we often uncover products such as those from less reputable firms.

These firms tend to be 1) Operating out of a UPS Store or PO Box, 2) Not ever in a Bricks and Mortar (real) store, and 3) unable to provide detailed COAs (the analysis) of their products. This often suggests that they may be importing inferior products to sell to the masses in devious ways just to secure a profit. It's a lot like the old "snake oil" salesmen of the past. They're not rolling into town in loaded down wagons and shilling for their nasty oils - they may actually have CBD in them. But, the cost is exorbitant.

In a previous video, I covered a bit about the milligrams of CBD in hemp oil extracts. CBD, being the main cannabinoid, should be prevalent in all of the analysis documents you get with any hemp oil. It should be clear as to the content of CBD and  hopefully other cannabinoids - but this is less likely to see. However, Full or Broad spectrum tends to be the best pair of choices for most consumers from a health perspective. Just to point out a key factor: If you're in transportation or law enforcement or similar, you Don't want a full spectrum as they WILL have trace amounts of THC which may cause you to "pop" in a drug test. This is true even though the legal limit for THC in these CBD products is under .3% of THC.

The video here covers a recent discovery of another from the long list of products produced by the makers of Brighten, Star and many others. This one is called "ProCanna" and they're using a nasty trial technique to separate you from your hard-earned cash. If you have money to burn and don't mind risking the questionable sourcing of their hemp oil extracts, then go for it - you can find them on the internet and NOT in stores (they have no physical stores like Carolina Hemp Huts or other hemp product stores).

Don’t Get CBD-Scammed!

Do You Really know the STRENGTH of your CBD Oil? (CBD Oil Mini Review)

Certificate of Analysis: CBD Hemp Oil Water Soluble 500mg

Your Bottle reads "500mg", right? What does this mean? Does it mean that the bottle actually contains 500 mg of CBD? Is it just 500 mg of true hemp oil extract combined with MCT Oil? What is that strength of YOUR hemp oil? David Pratt Carter guest presents for Mary Lopez Carter in today's Hemp Day Video.

This video covers three common hemp oil extract products and shows their "hemp oil calculations" based upon their supplement facts found on each of their products.

Many people do not know the strength of the hemp oil extract they are taking. Further, people may not realize the COST PER Milligram of the CBD that they are taking.

It's true that hemp oils all have subtle or wildly different tastes. When you ignore taste and look only at the strength of the hemp oil based upon the amount of CBD and the other "entourage" of cannabinoids, then you're able to get a better baseline comparison of products.

We're not covering Charlotte's Web or Koi in this video but we may in a future video. There are some amazing and effective CBD products on the market so we're not going to bash any products that you may be using. We're covering the strengths of several products and showing the cost per milligram.

You may be familiar with some of the products shown. If you find something uncomfortable about what is said, feel free to comment. For example, one product may be your favorite and you may feel that you're uncomfortable because something may be said which is negative about it. That's fine. Leave your comment.

We're giving each product a fair shake and comparing them based upon the information on their products - no hearsay involved. No rumor. Just product information and other facts.

Be sure to visit Hemp Oil Rockstar's main site at https://hempoilrockstar.com and read more and view other videos.

David Pratt Carter jumps in from time to time to help the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar. He's a co-founder of Ideas Envy LLC, a North Carolina Marketing and Training company. His wife, Mary Lòpez Carter believes strongly in Hemp Oil products and works to keep David taking CBD.

David has also covered "SCAMS" with CBD in two videos: Trial Programs and Brighten/Pure CBD.

Hemp Day Video: Drug Testing could Get you Fired for CBD, Learn what to do First!

Your HR Department may have something to say about CBD

What Can Your HR Department do?

Let's say you're working for Corporate America. No harm there, unless your organization has a habit of doing drug testing. The typical drug test seeks to discover whether you're taking illegal drugs such as Cocaine, Meth, Marijuana and CBD.

Wait, what?

Not really. CBD or Cannibidiol isn't actively targeted in the drug testing in nearly all test kits available. However, most of us know that THC is the targeted "drug" from Hemp or Marijuana. The people who take the time to understand the biology associated with Hemp understand that CBD is NOT the psychoactive component within the Hemp plant.

It's been shown where THC is beneficial to our health. This article isn't to sing the praises of THC, but I suggest that you search within Google or another search engine for benefits of THC from medical publications (use PubMed in the search string).

Mary Lòpez Carter has been advocating for broader acceptance of CBD in the workplace. Because some CBD products contain THC (legal limit of .3% THC), it's possible some drug tests will "pop" for showing THC in your system. Are you a drug user at this point? Not really. You have part of the overall spectrum of cannabinoids in your system. CBD = Good. THC = Bad. According to the law.

As mentioned before, THC has been shown to be beneficial (visit the reports). But if you have it in your system, you could be in dire straights with your employer if you test positive for it - including when your CBD has a very small amount of THC in it. How can you avoid the trouble of CBD (especially the "full spectrum oils which also include THC in trace amounts)?

Proactive Steps for You to Follow

It's Key to Be Proactive.

  1. Speak with your Medical Professional and Get a Note detailing you're taking CBD Oil.
  2. Inform your HR department (great if done in writing, paper trail) and show the Dr. Note.
  3. Buy trusted CBD Oil that may be full spectrum, but offers below the legal limit of .3% THC

In my video, I mentioned a very exciting product coming soon to Hemp Oil Rockstar. It's a No THC Full Spectrum offering. For those of you who are purists in the terminology, you're likely to argue that "No, this is broad spectrum" and you may be correct from your viewpoint. We're glad that there's technology that allows for the full entourage effect without people worrying over whether they will "pop" in drug tests. Be on the look out soon for our Zero THC products at Hemp Oil Rockstar and Carolina Hemp Huts.

WRAL Covers Benefits of CBD Oil

wral covers usage and benefits of CBD

Raleigh, NC News Station Covers North Carolina and CBD

In a recent on air piece (and online), entitle "5 ON YOUR SIDE: What is Cannabidiol? The ABCs OF CBD", WRAL of Raleigh, NC summarized some of the benefits people seek with the aid of CBD (shortened form of the word cannibidiol). Monica Laliberte, WRAL executive producer/consumer reporter, revealed that many North Carolinians are embracing CBD to help with health conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy and other conditions.

We're happy to be a leader in the Triangle Area for CBD sales since we opened our Online Store with Hemp Oil Rockstar and our Online and Streets at Southpoint Mall Store, Carolina Hemp Hut.

Mary Lòpez Carter, the founder of Hemp Oil Rockstar and the Carolina Hemp Hut stores, started selling hemp oil products in 2017 after she did copious research into products which would help her husband, David Pratt Carter, beat cancer (he had a malignant intracranial tumor). She discovered the promising impact of CBD on people's health. She opened Hemp Oil Rockstar online in early 2018. Soon after finding success with Hemp Oil Rockstar, she leaded space at the Streets at Southpoint mall in Durham, NC to establish a more permanent location to help people of the community with better health options. On October 19, 2018, Mary and her team opened Carolina Hemp Hut in the mall (located near the Microsoft Store). Mary and the team continue to educate consumers with information from scientists, researchers and medical professionals on the benefits of hemp oil extracts.

Even though the Federal Laws on CBD are contradictory, Mary vows to continue bringing 100% Farm Bill Compliant (less than .3% THC) products to North Carolinians in her stores.

"I'm essentially a good health activist. I want to make sure that people know what the studies have revealed about CBD and Hemp Products and I educate them on the products that are legally available to them," said Mary in a recent interview.

Mary Lòpez Carter also produces educational videos for YouTube and Podcasts entitled "Hemp Day" to assist people in making educated choices with CBD products and avoid scams.

The War Against Natural Medicines mean $32,500 for CBD Oil

CBD Is natural not man made, don't let FDA take it over for pharma

Original Article: April 6, 2018 (From ANH-USA)

If we don’t change a key FDA policy, that’s how much you may be forced to pay if you want to purchase CBD oil. Action Alert!

For years, consumers have benefitted from access to cheap, safe, and effective CBD oil supplements. But now the FDA says that CBD is a drug, not a supplement—a drug which will be sold for $32,500 a year. Legally the FDA could at any time remove all CBD supplements from the market, on its own volition, or if the drug company which holds drug market exclusivity requests FDA do so. Unless we change the rules, we may see a government-sponsored monopoly on CBD oil, and in the near future, additional monopolies on other cheap, safe, and effective supplements.

This is happening because of a back-channel that allows natural supplements to be turned into drugs by the FDA. It works like this: if a company is investigating a substance as a drug, FDA rules give the company market exclusivity on that substance—even if it is currently being sold as a supplement. There are two exceptions: if the supplement was “marketed in or as a dietary supplement” before 1994, or if a supplement company has filed a “new supplement” notification with the FDA before the company’s investigation began. (Recall, too, that the FDA has not completed the policies for submitting a “new supplement” notification, so supplement companies don’t even know how to comply!) Pyridoxamine, an important form of vitamin B6 was removed from the market by the FDA through this exact same mechanism.

This means that, at any time, GW Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of the CBD drug, can ask the FDA to remove cheap CBD oil supplements from the market, and the only option consumers will have is their new drug that costs $32,500 a year. This hasn’t happened yet, but we think GW is simply waiting for the market for CBD oil to grow—which it is. When it reaches a tipping point, then GW can ask the FDA to remove all the CBD supplements, and wait for the cash to roll in from consumers who don’t have any other choice.

This threat to affordable CBD oil shows how broken this system is. An opioid epidemic is ravaging our country, with drug overdose deaths surpassing car accident fatalities. People are addicted to and dying from FDA-approved drugs, yet the agency is poised to eliminate consumer access to a non-addictive, cheap, safe, and effective alternative in CBD oil—all so one drug company can charge tens of thousands of dollars for what currently costs a few dollars.

The Senate Farm Bill took one step to protect CBD oil by legalizing the growth of hemp (though it remains to be seen if the final bill will contain this language), but that alone will not preserve consumer access to this important medicine. ANH-USA is crafting legislation that will, among other things, protect CBD oil and other natural substances from being turned into drugs by eliminating the market exclusivity that drug companies get when a new drug investigation is on a dietary ingredient currently being sold in the market in a dietary supplement. These rules should apply retroactively to protect CBD oil and other substances that have already (or are likely to be) removed before this legislation becomes law.

Until we close this loophole, we will see drug companies continue to turn our natural dietary supplements into drugs. News headlines are filled with Phase II or Phase III drug trials failing; Big Pharma is in search of a sure thing, and what could be better than supplements that have demonstrated health benefits? The FDA will not protect us—they’re in on it! More drugs mean more user fees—more money—for the agency, so don’t expect the FDA to defend your access to supplements.

Action Alert! Write to Congress and the FDA and tell them you support a legislative change that eliminates market exclusivity for INDs filed on substances that are currently sold in the market as dietary supplements. Please send your message immediately.

Important Steps

  1. Find your Congressional Representative. Use https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative to quickly find out who represents you
  2. Call them and lodge your complaint or concern about the possibility of the FDA taking away natural CBD and other forms from people such as yourself.
  3. Send letters to Congress. Let them know that drug companies SHOULD NOT HAVE the ability to stop access to CBD and other Cannabinoids.
  4. Share this article with friends and others. Use Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, MeWe and others to share this important message.
  5. Use the Action Alert link here on this article. Lodge your concerns from multiple directions.

These steps need to be shared with OTHERS immediately. The more our representatives hear our voices, the more opportunity we have of protecting CBD and Cannabinoids from government control (read that as ownership of Big Pharma).
