(Press Release) As the Marijuana Industry continues to expand across America, Elvis “Papi” Edwards, is especially exploring ways in which Cannabidiol (CBD)- one of the many components found in the plant that does not get people ‘stoned’- could be used to promote good health.
Research is showing that CBD has several therapeutic benefits in the treatment of various conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, diabetes, PTSD, alcoholism, strokes and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other ailments (California NORML, n.d.).
And so armed with this information, Elvis has dedicated his time to manufacturing and developing products which incorporate CBD as part of their ingredients in his hopes of bringing relief to sufferers of various medical conditions.
Elvis is continuing on the trend of growing his American based business and building networks with cultivators in the Caribbean and Central American region.
He believes that there is a definite linkage that can be cultivated in the region between both sectors and can be revived with cannabis and other related crops that are currently being used in the products that his companies manufacture.
One of the products that Elvis thinks could revolutionize the cannabis industry is the “CBD Enriched Sugar” product soon to be launched by his company, CDBxr.
Globally, more than a million metric tons of sugar is consumed every year – whether it is with coffee, tea, juice, in cakes or in cookies, sugar is highly used. Elvis believes that if CBD is added to sugar, then there would be no easier way for people to get their daily dose of CBD into their systems and get the medicinal benefits they need.
It is with that in mind that Elvis hopes that the Caribbean can fully put more energy into agriculture and go directly into the planting of sugar cane and marijuana in addition to thinking about other products that can be fused with cannabis.
Elvis also wants to exploit the manufacturing and processing capabilities in America and bridge technologies in America to the Caribbean to create a binding synergy between both countries.
Sugar cane was once one of the Caribbean region’s biggest exports and America is the largest food processor and manufacturing, while on the other side marijuana is still largely illegal in the Caribbean even though America and Canada are opening up more to the crop.
The cultivation of both crops simultaneously and fusing them to produce an enriched sugar-cannabis product would be an exciting, lucrative and innovative endeavour for American entrepreneurs and Caribbean farmers alike, considering the favourable weather conditions where both products can thrive naturally.
