CBD Gummies Taste-off! Contest & other hempy things

Gummies tasting at Expo West
What does CBD have to do with Will Smith, Chris Rock and Russia? This episode has all the answers … it seems … as well as talk about NAC and gummies.

To kick off April 2022, Insider in the Afternoon gets hempy with some insights on the minor cannabinoid beta-caryophyllene and hemp seed protein, followed by a peek at recent CBD gummies tasting around the Natural Products Expo West show floor. This foolhardy episode wraps up with a rousing discussion of great-tasting gummies with the crew from Beyond Brands.

The Co-Factors are back! Todd Runestad and his Co-Factor Ola Lessard welcome:

  • Jason Mitchell, CEO and founder of HempFusion
  • Annie Rouse, COO of OP Innovates
  • Margie Adelman, Susan Fecko and Heather Terry from Beyond Brands
