    CBD Producer Spotlight: Medterra

    It’s important to us that our customers know exactly how their CBD is produced, so this month we will be shining the spotlight on the CBD producers whose products we are proud to feature in our store. We will trace each of their production processes, from the hemp farm to our digital shelves. First up is a closer look at Medterra’s award-winning cultivation and production process.

    Medterra’s Kentucky-proud hemp

    The legal status of US hemp farming on a federal level has been a hotly contested issue in 2018. A new farm bill is currently moving through Congress that would make hemp a legal crop nationally. For now, Kentucky has the only federal program for hemp farming. Medterra has partnered directly with the Hemp Pilot Research Program and sources all its hemp from Kentucky through the program.

    New Study Shows CBD Could Be Used to Treat Drug Addiction

    A recent study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology has found that cannabidiol could be a potential treatment for addiction to some of the world’s most addictive drugs. The research targeted methamphetamine consumption in rats with high doses of cannabidiol, which was found to inhibit the desire for the drug.

    The early evidence suggests that non-psychoactive cannabinoids like cannabidiol, or CBD, could suppress areas of the reward system in the brain. Doing so would inhibit one of the primary mechanisms responsible for the cycle of addiction to drugs like methamphetamine.
