Twinlab to host video podcast educating consumers about hemp-derived CBD

January 8, 2019

Twinlab Consolidated Holdings Inc. (Boca Raton, FL) has announced that it will be hosting a bi-monthly video podcast called “The Science of CBD” in order to mitigate confusion among consumers about the legal status and benefits of hemp-derived CBD. Following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and its hemp farming provision, awareness about hemp and CBD will grow, and more hemp-based products will likely flood the market, complicating purchasing decisions. 

“We want to equip consumers with science-based facts on phytocannabinoids and hemp so they know how to use CBD effectively,” explained Anthony Zolezzi, CEO of Twinlab, in a press release. “We believe natural products will revolutionized healthcare, and CBD products will be responsible for the biggest expansion the natural products industry has experienced in recent years. [We] want to ensure that consumers are informed to make smart decisions when it comes to dosing, frequency, cost, and usage.”

The podcast will be hosted by Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, professor of nutraceutical sciences at Huntington University, and director of formulation at Twinlab, with the help of occasional guest experts providing additional insights.
