PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., May 30, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Hot on the heels of their expansion in 2018, Deep Six CBD has arranged a new deal for seven stores in PREIT mall properties this summer. Deep Six CBD, the boutique-style CBD emporium chain, will now have locations in the majority of PREIT malls by the end of Summer 2019, including:
Unlike less committed businesses, Deep Six CBD has gone the whole nine yards to provide a memorable experience and a vast selection of different products and brands.
"It's easier to think of it in terms of craft beer," said Operations Manager Benton Purtle. "Instead of a more traditional bar where you may only find four or five local standard beers on tap, we've taken more of a 'craft microbrewery' approach - making more than fifty hand-picked options available. Apply that mentality to CBD, and you've got Deep Six. Many other businesses choose one favorite CBD brand to represent or promote. We go out of our way to bring more brands under our roof with each passing day."
Rather than carts and kiosks that are notorious for their "here today, gone tomorrow" approach to mall retail, Deep Six CBD has given their brick and mortar stores a more intimate, customer-focused approach to CBD sales and consumer education.
Company President Nick Kruczaj, a US Air Force veteran who founded the company, explained, "We're just happy to be able to provide a higher standard of service, the widest range of products, and the most thorough customer experience to an ever-growing collection of communities. We're lucky; not everyone can honestly say that their business provides a benefit to a community."
BURLINGTON, Vt., May 30, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- As a company long known for flavors like Half Baked & Magic Brownies, it's no surprise that Ben & Jerry's has an affinity for the newest trend in food, cannabidiol or CBD. Given Ben & Jerry's history and on-going goal to bring fans the best ice cream possible, the company has announced its commitment to including CBD in its ice cream innovations.
Ben & Jerry's intends to make its CBD-infused ice cream available once CBD is legalized at the federal level. Currently the FDA prohibits adding CBD to food and beverages. The FDA has set a public hearing on the legalization of CBD in food and beverages on May 31st and Ben & Jerry's has submitted comment on the issue.
A National Restaurant Association survey found that three in four chefs named CBD – and cannabis-infused food-- as a hot trend in 2019. "We're doing this for our fans," said CEO Matthew McCarthy. "We've listened and brought them everything from Non-Dairy indulgences to on-the-go portions with our Pint Slices. We aspire to love our fans more than they love us and we want to give them what they're looking for in a fun, Ben & Jerry's way."
Ben & Jerry's is looking into sustainably-sourced CBD from Vermont. Values-led sourcing is an important part of Ben & Jerry's product development. By using high-quality, sustainably-sourced ingredients, the company helps to support a Linked Prosperity model within Ben & Jerry's supply chain, making sure Ben & Jerry's is positively impacting every community in which it is a part of. The company currently sources its brownies from Greyston Bakery, which implements an open-door hiring policy; and its cookie dough from Rhino Foods, which hires refugees and sources its dairy from the St. Albans Co-op.
Ben & Jerry's encourages its fans to visit benjerry.com to sign up for updated info on Ben & Jerry's commitment and progress toward using CBD. Fans can also contact the FDA during their open comment window regarding CBD use in food now through July 2nd, 2019.

BOCA RATON, Fla., May 28, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Fifty-four million adults in America are looking for a way to manage the pain caused by arthritis.
To bring attention to the devastating effects that the more than 100 types of arthritis cause, May has been designated National Arthritis Awareness Month. Traditional approaches to dealing with different types of arthritis include medication, physical or occupation therapy and even surgery.
Candy Head CBD-infused hard candies may be another approach for arthritis sufferers to consider.
Early research suggests that CBD may ease arthritis pain, including for Osteoarthritis, or OA, which is the most common form of the degenerative disease affecting approximately 30 million Americans. Some research regarding CBD and Rheumatoid Arthritis, known as RA, also suggests it may help, as well.
There are many CBD products on the market today, but Candy Head, a Rhode Island-based company, makes CBD-infused hard candies which not only taste great but also promote optimal absorption within the body.
"As a health and wellness company, we think observances, such as National Arthritis Awareness Month, bring much needed publicity to many public health issues," said Ian Gilley, founder of Candy Head.
Candy Head's product uses full-spectrum CBD oil, which is full of therapeutic terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids and fatty acids. Separately, these ingredients have benefits, but together, they create an "entourage effect" which increases the candies' health value.
The company uses a third-party lab to test their candies for proper CBD dosing and consistency to make sure consumers receive the precise amount of oil needed. None of Candy Head's offerings contain dairy, gluten, animal products, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, sesame, coconut, peanuts or tree nuts. They are also vegan-friendly.
Candy Head's CBD blast, a variety pack of 25 hard candies, is available for sale at VitaBeauti.com for $64.95. The candies come in four flavors: green apple, watermelon, tangerine and blue raspberry.
"Arthritis is a serious disease and people need to take a proactive approach to managing it," Gilley said. "People can find a lot of useful information online at sites, such as the Arthritis Foundation. If you have arthritis, you can educate yourself about this malady and the best ways to live with it."
