Here Come the Minors

When one thinks about Cannabinoids the first letters that typically come to mind are THC and CBD — but that is beginning to change. Since there are over 105 different cannabinoids already identified, it was only a matter of time before growers, geneticists, and breeders started shifting their attention to what are currently called the “Minor” Cannabinoids.

Hemp Holds Promise for Farmers

By Scott Bennett @scottrbenn

Industrial Hemp Becomes Federally Legal!

The moment has arrived!

We are so excited to announce that on December 20th, 2018 President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill which included the full text of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 which de-schedules industrial hemp and all its parts from the Controlled Substances Act. Hemp will now be treated as an agricultural crop, farmers will be able to get seeds, crop insurance and open bank accounts. We anticipate 2019 as a significant year for hemp farming and hemp investment opportunities.

More specifics about the impacts of the Farm Bill can be found at this  summary of the Farm Bill drafted by The Hemp Roundtable General Counsel, Jonathan Miller. It’s an exciting time for hemp. We look forward to working with all of our Hemp Supporters as this industry moves forward! Please contact us if you are interested in getting involved as a farmer, business owner, investor, etc. Contact: Zev@AbrahamPaiss.com.

13 Healthy Food Trends That are Going Mainstream in 2018

New year, new food. That’s the saying, right? If you’re wondering what tasty new products will be flooding shelves and restaurant menus in 2018, don’t worry, we got you. We’ve sipped and snacked our way through the latest innovations to determine what you’re going to want to get your hands on this year—and you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg at the local organic market to do so.

1. The Trend: Hydrogen Water

While we don’t agree on much in this tumultuous world of nutrition, we probably all can agree that we need to drink more water. And when regular old H2O gets boring, health buffs are turning to the supposed energy-charged benefits of Hydrogen Water.

Dr. Cody Cook, the owner of HTWO brand, claims that more than 16 gold medalist athletes are using the stuff, which purportedly helps boost energy, provides antioxidants, and quickly removes lactic acid. Admittedly, the science in this area is weak at best, but we love the clean crisp flavor (and it might have helped to make our hangover a little less intense). If you’re thirsty and feeling like the tap water isn’t cutting it, give this a go.

The Evidence:

HTWO hydrogen water is available at Kroger, Natural Foods, and online for $2-3 per pack. HFactor hydrogen water is also available at Giant Food, local natural food markets, and online for $3 per pack.

The Energy Of The Future Is Solar Power

Not so long ago, solar power was something of a dream for those who were ahead of the curve in the environmental movement. It appeared to be an option for the wealthy and for those who had committed themselves to environmentalism.

The idea that we could heat our homes and generate electricity from little more than sunshine seemed like a utopian ideal.
