Terravidaonline, the fastest-growing CBD wholesaler in the US, announced new ZERO THC tinctures will hit the shelves at retailers who sell its products. The THC content in CBD created a lot of pressure for the FDA, in order to regulate what may and may not be sold to the public. The CEO of Terravidaonline, Eddie Mamane, said: “Since there are discrepancies in how different states see the law, we made it easy for our retail partners: now we have a range of ZERO THC products which removes the red tape faced in some states”.
The image above depicts how varying strengths of ZERO THC CBD products will look, ranging from 1000MG, to 2500MG and even the super strong 5000MG.
CBD Has Become So Popular that Isolate Producers in the US May Face a Supply Squeeze
Since the signing of the Farm Bill of 2018 by the US president in December 2018, CBD has become more popular than ever and there is increasing demand by consumers. Even doctors who have read about the effectiveness of CBD for health concerns such as depression, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s disease, acne, anxiety and epilepsy are now prescribing more CBD for their patients than ever before. But does the increased demand match increased supply?
There hasn’t been enough time for the supply side to respond to the increased demand. If any farmers in the northern hemisphere plan to grow hemp, they can only start this coming summer. It is hoped that enough of them will joint the now popular hemp farming otherwise there will be a supply squeeze. Do we know what happens when demand exceeds supply? Prices will rise and those people who cannot afford the high prices will end up shopping by price alone, which means that they will end up purchasing low quality CBD. This is CBD extracted from hemp that was conventionally grown and maybe extracted using butane and ethanol. Products made from such CBD contains traces of harmful chemicals which are then ingested or inhaled or applied topically to the body, only to cause new problems.
Why Quality Matters
Whether you are new or old to the use of CBD, quality matters – as pointed out by a well-known Doctor. With so many CBD brands available out there how does a consumer know which one is good quality and which one is not? With so many versions of CBD in the form of lotions, vapes, capsules, softgels, oils, topicals and edibles, how does a consumer know which one is best? It can be confusing. And, considering the high cost of CBD and the total lack of government guidelines, how does a consumer make a decision?
The best way for a consumer to get the best out of CBD is the buy and use high quality CBD. Why does that matter? Because every user must get the best value for their money. Generally, the better the quality, the higher the price, yet it does not necessarily follow that when a CBD product is expensive it is better quality. That is because the potency of CBD varies from manufacturer to manufacturer so consumers have to make sure that what they get is strong enough to give them the effect that they desire. Consumers have to compare various products and look behind the scenes to discover the practices that each manufacturer follows to make their CBD product, e.g. the extraction process. Consumers must also check what each manufacturer insists on when they buy from the farmers because they want CBD to be made from organic non-GMO hemp. They must also check each manufacturer to find out if they use independent laboratories to certify that the CBD is free from pesticides, free from extraction chemical residues, and it is the right concentration. At the end of the day, every consumer must pay the best price for a high-quality product.
Consumers can actually check the quality of CBD by looking at the colour:
- Raw CBD is either dark green or almost black because it was not purified. Therefore, it contains terpenes, waxes, chlorophyll, other cannabinoids and other plant matter. It is said that this type of CBD is not readily bioavailable and consumers might want to avoid it.
- Decarboxylated CBD is also dark but the active ingredients have gone through decarboxylation which changes CBD-A to CBD which is claimed to be more bioavailable.
- Filtered CBD is the most available type. It is decarboxylated and filtered and it has a lovely green colour. This is high quality CBD that can be compared to a fine brandy that has been triple distilled.
Quality matters. In the absence of government regulation and guidelines, consumers must do their own homework to ensure that they purchase and use high quality CBD products.
Two Example Products Made from High-Quality Non-GMO Certified CBD
Let’s focus on two high quality products made from CBD isolate made by Industrial Hemp Partners (IHP). There are oils, softgels, capsules, vape products, topical products, edibles and even pet products. Skin care products made from CBD are the latest development in the CBD industry. Users of CBD-infused beauty products keep reporting amazing results from using such items. Here are the reasons why CBD is very popular in beauty products.
CBD is Anti-Inflammatory: This property makes CBD the perfect ingredient for fighting psoriasis, eczema and sunburn. Because it prevents swelling and irritation it is perfect for preventing acne and pimple breakouts. CBD creams and lotions are the perfect allies for anyone who suffers from acne and pimples.
CBD is Anti-Oil: It minimises sebum production and normalizes over-active sebaceous glands and, as a result, the face is less oily and the pores are less clogged. This property of CBD makes it the perfect ingredient in acne products in order to prevent and treat acne.
CBD is Nourishing and Moisturising: CBD contains vitamins A, D and E, omega-6 essential fatty acid and gamma-linolenic acid which moisturize without blocking pores, and make the skin look plumber and more radiant.
CBD is Anti-Aging: CBD works very well with the endocannabinoid system, supplying any chemicals that might be lacking in the body, including antioxidants. Antioxidants reduce the appearance of wrinkles, prevent the skin from becoming dry, thin and fragile and give the skin a youthful glow.
Here we discuss two beauty products made from high quality non-GMO certified CBD that will give any user all the benefits listed above.

ZERO THC CBD cannabidol is here. However consumers need to go beyond that and focus on certified products in order to have a good and safe experience with CBD.
The Subtle Cues in Our Environment that Encourage Healthier Living
The choices we make each day regarding our diet, activity and lifestyle habits ultimately determine our health and wellbeing. Nonetheless, the surroundings we inhabit also actively influence those decisions, whether we realize it or not. Our built environment contains many subtle cues that either promote or impede healthy behaviors. With thoughtful awareness, we can leverage and shape these cues to nudge ourselves toward more positive choices.
Architectural Cues for Active Living
Urban design and infrastructure elements play a major role in our activity levels. Visible, accessible staircases encourage climbing over passive elevator use. Features like centrally located, attractive stairwells bathed in natural light make stairs hard to ignore. Artwork beautifies the ascent while music enlivens acoustics. Placing stairwells near prominent gathering areas also maximizes exposure and use. Conversely, hidden dreary stairwells discourage climbing. Building layouts should make stairways the default for short trips. Thoughtful design embeds activity into daily routines.
Outside, continuous sidewalks and protected bike lanes provide clear cues that active transit is safe and expected. Ample parking signals driving is preferable. Traffic calming measures like speed humps and narrowed lanes imprint mental cautions for vehicles to accommodate bikes and pedestrians. Sidewalk street furniture and plantings buffer walkers from traffic. Crosswalks, pedestrian signals, and refuge islands imprint rights of way. Complete Streets redesign allocates fair space for diverse safe use. Our infrastructure surroundings can literally pave the path for active living.
Office and Home Cues
Subtle factors within buildings also affect activity and diet. Kitchen placement, for instance, affects our choices. Research shows open concept kitchens integrated into living areas encourage more healthful cooking and family meals than closed off kitchens. Islands and open shelving provide visual snack cues that can either prompt cravings or showcase fruits, nuts, and other healthy grabs. Kitchens sited near entries or offices also maximize visibility and food prep use rather than distant basement kitchens.
At offices, centrally located shared spaces like break rooms, cafes and snack nooks encourage communal meals, informal gatherings and refueling walks to retrieve snacks. Providing showers, bike racks and lockers signals active commuting is valued. Standing and treadmill desks prompt movement during sedentary work, while choice architecture guides selections from communal food areas. Simple environmental adjustments nudge better decisions.
Nutritional Cues at Markets and Restaurants
Eateries and markets harbor cues that stimulate cravings along with willpower depletion. Certain lighting, music, and décor stimulate overindulgence. Cues that unconsciously hurry patrons undermine reasoned decisions. Scented air surrounding baked goods stalls awakens salivation and desire. Strategic menu design also sways choices. Listing unhealthy items first or at eye level suppresses willpower. Descriptive names romanticize less healthy options. Menu formatting can also highlight nutritious dishes and portion guidance. Markets use product placement for maximizing impulse grabs. Though subtle, environmental exposures across stores and eateries significantly sway our eating choices.
Cues for Hydration and Rest
Proper hydration and sleep are imperative for our wellbeing but are easily overlooked when immersed in urban settings and schedules. Environmental design can combat these gaps through strategic cues. Plentiful public water fountains provide visual refreshment reminders throughout cities, while placing restrooms near fountains links the hydration notion. Cafes position chilled water dispensers up front for thirst-quenching without calories. Homes and offices forget hydration less with decorative pitchers and glasses on tables. Lighting design is key for sleep cues. Dimming lights in workplaces and warm home lighting provide visual preparation for rest. Cool-toned blue hues stimulate and signal awakening. Our surroundings can cue us to drink and sleep wisely.
Signage and Sensory Cues
Explicit signs offer direct visual cues to healthier behaviors – such as a no smoking sign that prompts at entrances. Staircases could feature plaques tallying burned calories. Cafeterias may display encouragements to take smaller portions or try vegetable sides. Signs foster mindfulness and restraint at choice points. Sensory cues also guide behaviors. Smells eliciting happiness or calm can de-stress environments. Soothing natural sounds and music relax tense settings. Harsh lighting and noise stimulate frenetic energy and impulsiveness. Pleasant sensory experiences invite more mindful, deliberate choices. Uplifting cues infuse healthy messaging into spaces.
Art and Nature Cues for Wellbeing
Artwork carrying uplifting themes or depicting healthy activities, fruits and vegetables, serene nature and joyful gatherings infuses visual positivity into surroundings. Murals and wall graphics remind us what truly matters for wellbeing. Images are digestible in passing, sinking into the subconscious. Vibrant, thriving plants and greenery provide natural visual relief and comfort that lower stress. Decor mimicking natural materials brings warmer textures. Spatial flow mimicking nature’s curves calms minds. Natural light and windows boost mentality and sleep cycle regulation. Thoughtful touches of art and nature foster mental balance, positivity, and healthy choices.
Our everyday surroundings contain many subtle influences on our diet, activity, sleep, and lifestyle, either promoting or hindering health. But heightened awareness of these cues allows us to consciously reshape environments for encouraging wiser choices. Simple changes to architecture, office layouts, signage, lighting, art, and nature contact encourage movement, nutrition, and wellbeing. Our minds absorb ambient cues, so design wisely. When supportive healthy cues surround us, positive habits become a little easier, more inviting, and purposeful. Think about cues you could shift for better living. Small nudges in public spaces and our homes can guide us all toward healthier, more thoughtful lives.
