By Adelina Sanchez

One of the most distinct memories from my childhood was taking care of my sister. She was born prematurely and faced disabling medical conditions, and as the oldest sister of eight, it was my job to assist her as much as I could. She has numerous brain and heart surgeries, not to mention all of the physical and occupational therapy she endured. We grew up in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, where life was hard but we managed to find pockets of joy to get us through the day. One pocket of joy was taking my sister, Jazmin, to the Curandera. 

The Curandera was a holistic healer in Mexico who would always make Jazmin feel better. She would give her oils extracted from special “flowers”, which would increase her appetite and relieved some of the pain that she constantly endured. As a child, I always thought those flowers were amazing and their ability to put my sister at ease even just for a little while meant so much to our family. Her smile after her treatment proved that those flowers were indeed magical.

Jazmin unfortunately passed away in 2005, but she taught me that I was meant to help people who struggle with pain. I moved to Chicago and became a licensed massage therapist so that I could continue to help people and provide relief, much like the Curandera did for Jazmin. Everything came full circle when I was massaging a patient with extreme rheumatoid arthritis. Rather than use my own lotions, she asked that I massage her with a topical cream that she bought. The cream had a little leaf on it and suddenly everything clicked! The flowers were actually cannabis, and cannabis helped relieve pain. It was then that I knew exactly what I needed to do.

I learned all about the endocannabinoid system and CBD to fully understand how cannabis can actually heal medical ailments, and then I opened up my business, Leafly Therapy, as a tribute to Jazmin. While starting a business is by no means easy, she was my motivation to work hard and fulfill my American dream. I did a lot of research on CBD products and because CBD used to lack a lot of regulations, I decided that it would be best if I created my own products myself. I outsourced the pure CBD oil directly from a farm in the South so that I knew exactly what was in each product that I used on a patient. 

Seeing my baby sister in each of my patients, I made a promise that I would only use the best products and care to help bring them the relief they needed. I hand-make each of my products all by myself, much like the Curandera.

I now know that CBD is one of the best ways to achieve relaxation and find relief for chronic ailments. Each session activates the endocannabinoid system, which enables maximum relaxation, muscle manipulation, and better blood circulation. Before making the connection that my sister benefitted from cannabis treatment, I never thought about CBD from a medicinal perspective. It truly helped me to open my eyes and I want nothing more than to share this helpful information to anyone who could benefit from this natural remedy. I’ve seen patients’ conditions improve right in front of my eyes! 

Opening up a business was one of the hardest, yet most liberating things I have ever done. I have been a caretaker my entire life, but now I get to step up and make the rules. I help people not because I have to, like I did when I was a child, but because I want to. Seeing my clients get the relief they need is the most rewarding part, and I absolutely love what I do.

To any women out there who have had a challenging upbringing, I encourage you to channel that into something positive. Had I not grown up the way that I had, I probably would not have fallen into this career path, much less opened up my own business and discovered my lifelong passion!

CBD is part of Vermont Sales and Use Tax and is generally used in the state as it doesn’t cause intoxication.

CBD industry sprouts in Clatsop County – Daily Astorian https://linksthesun.com/cbd-industry-sprouts-in-clatsop-county-daily-astorian/ Thu, 19 Sep 2019 00:58:14 +0000 http://CBMigQFodHRwczovL3d3dy5kYWlseWFzdG9yaWFuLmNvbS9uZXdzL2xvY2FsL2NiZC1pbmR1c3RyeS1zcHJvdXRzLWluLWNsYXRzb3AtY291bnR5L2FydGljbGVfZjU2MjY0YWMtZGEzYS0xMWU5LTgwNzktYjc3ODFmOTg5NmFmLmh0bWzSAQA Tiffany Nelson started out making products laced with THC, the psychoactive component in marijuana, to help a friend with cancer.

Tiffany Nelson started out making products laced with THC, the psychoactive component in marijuana, to help a friend with cancer. With the legalization of hemp, she developed a nonpsychoactive lotion using its extract CBD, or cannabidiol, commonly touted for its potential to treat pain and other conditions.

“It’s just pain relief without the highness,” she said.

Hemp leaf

Hemp contains higher concentrations of cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD.

Last year, Nelson and her husband, Oscar, started Astoria CBD Co., joining a growing collection of locals cultivating hemp and marketing the extract in value-added products.

Clatsop County has five registered CBD handlers and growers, according to the state. They range from smaller operations like Nelson to Tweedle Farms, a vertically integrated farm in Jewell that grows high-CBD, nonpsychoactive hemp strains, selling them as smokeable flowers and bath bombs, tinctures, capsules and waxes.

Nelson sources her hemp from CB Dilley Hemp Farm in Forest Grove, where her brother-in-law, Thomas Epler, and his family grow 5 acres of hemp amid a 420-acre nursery. CB Dilley pales in comparison to the 50-acre hemp farm down the road from his operation, Epler said.

“You go down to St. Paul, Woodburn, and they’re running 150, 250, 500 acres,” Epler said. “Then you go down to Grants Pass, Medford, Ashland, they’re ripping out (500), 600-acre fields and putting hemp in.”

Most state hemp pilot programs have operated under rules passed in the 2014 Farm Bill. The 2018 Farm Bill, signed in December by President Donald Trump, legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp under federal law and directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture to issue regulations and guidance.

Oregon went from 13 certified growers and handlers in 2015 to 584 growers and 212 handlers in 2018. In 2019, the number of growers exploded to more than 1,900, and the number of handlers to nearly 500.

“I never thought I’d do this job,” said Jose Chiquito, a farmhand at Epler’s farm for 30 years, while stripping broken hemp branches of their foliage. “But now it’s legal.”

Harvest season

Hemp harvest season has begun. CB Dilley, with six or seven permanent workers, brings in between 30 and 40 people to help pick, dry and trim hemp, Epler said. Most of his harvest goes toward CBD oils, with a smaller amount for buds.

CBD lotion

Tiffany Nelson pours a fresh batch of her homemade CBD lotion into 4-ounce containers. 

Epler prides himself on his family’s ability to turn out high-CBD strains with an imperceptible amount of THC. Growers and hemp companies are tested to ensure products have less than the allowable 0.3% of THC content.

The USDA recently submitted draft rules for the national production of hemp to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget for approval. The rules are meant to clarify the legal definition of hemp as a commodity crop and reinforce its removal from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s list of controlled substances.

Epler sees the hemp industry exploding as the rules are finalized and prohibitions lifted on CBD in food and other products.

“It took so long to allow industrial hemp to begin with,” Epler said. “It still has that stigma of Cheech and Chong.”

In addition to Nelson, Epler supplies Kirsten Norgaard, who runs Kit’s Apothecary in downtown Astoria. Norgaard, like Nelson, started experimenting with personal THC-infused products before moving into CBD a few years ago.

“THC has great benefits too,” she said. “But sometimes you need to kill the pain but not be high.”

Her shop carries several CBD products, from creams and tinctures to gummy candies and chocolates. She has several CBD-infused kombuchas on tap and makes nonalcoholic CBD cocktails.

When she first started, Norgaard said, there was little oversight of CBD products. The state Department of Agriculture stepped in to oversee the hemp industry, certifying growers and handlers, she said.

“Which is good, because it just shows that the people who are growing, making products, actually handling the flower itself, are under some form of regulation,” she said. “You actually know what you’re getting. So I think it’s a good thing.”

Mainstream

Many handlers have gone big as CBD and hemp products have gone more mainstream, from hemp seed hearts sold in grocery stores to CBD shots added to coffee, alcohol and other drinks. Tigard-based CBD startup Strength of Hope recently signed a contract to market its products in CVS pharmacies.

Kirsten Norgaard

Kirsten Norgaard sources her hemp from CB Dilley Hemp Farm in Forest Grove to make CBD products at her shop, Kit’s Apothecary, in Astoria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration still considers CBD a prohibited substance in any food or dietary supplement for humans or animals.

“There is still a significant amount of missing data to better understand the effects on human exposure and the long-term effects of regular consumption,” Cara Welch, a senior adviser in the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, told attendees at a recent conference of the American Herbal Products Association.

The FDA is also concerned about unsubstantiated health claims that CBD cured everything from Alzheimer’s disease to cancer, Welch said. The FDA has not approved any marketing of cannabis for the treatment of a disease or condition, although it has approved one cannabis-derived prescription drug, Epidiolex, for treating seizures.

The big breakthrough in the CBD industry will be when the agency starts regulating it more like a dietary supplement, Norgaard said.

“It would be a huge advancement, because then it could go in anything,” Norgaard said. “Thankfully, in Oregon, we’re able to put it in food. And hopefully the rest of the country follows suit.”

The FDA has issued warning letters to companies marketing CBD products for therapeutic or medical uses. Marketing in the CBD business is largely through word of mouth. Nelson sells her products at a few shops locally and online.

“Everybody finds me,” Nelson said. “It’s usually — just like the cannabis people — they find it, because it’s their last resort. They’ve tried everything.”
