TORONTO, Aug. 24, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - LiveWell Canada Inc. ("LiveWell" or the "Company"), (TSXV: LVWL), is pleased to announce the publishing of white paper on Cannabidiol (CBD) from Industrial Hemp. "Given the rapid emergence of interest in CBD, but relative lack of information, we thought it would be helpful to summarize our findings to provide context to our stakeholders regarding its health benefits and the CBD market," commented David Rendimonti, President. "From the data assembled thus far, we believe that we are just scratching the surface as to the global opportunity in CBD from industrial hemp."
The following is an excerpt from the report:
"There has been surge of interest in CBD in recent years given a growing body of evidence as to CBD's positive health effects including: pain relief, combatting mood disorders, lowering inflammation, etc. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp, meaning it doesn't have the effect of getting a person high. The chemical composition of CBD from both plants is identical, however, CBD from industrial hemp is cheaper to produce and has a far less restrictive legal framework allowing for wider adoption at a faster pace. Most recently the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved the first CBD-based drug to treat epileptic seizures called Epidiolex. The evidence as to its health keeps building every day. This is a rapidly emerging market that could have CBD in many of the products people consume on a daily basis."
