CBD Manufacturer Announces TV Program That Tackles Veterans
Administration Refusal to Prescribe CBD to Curtail Suicide Epidemic
BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Warfighter
Hemp, a manufacturer of CBD products infused from industrial hemp
based in Boulder, Colorado, debuts its largest CBD offering to date, a
6000 milligram full spectrum tincture at the request of those who suffer
CBD derived from industrial hemp is non-psychotropic and is currently
being used by people who withdraw from opioids and manage their pain,
anxiety and PTSD, among other ailments. It is easy to use. Customers
simply ingest orally by itself or with food or beverage. The 6000 mg
tincture is available online for $299.99 at WarfighterHemp.com.
Warfighter Hemp has also added bath bomb mix to its product line-up.
Each eight-ounce jar and four-ounce package contains 50 mg of CBD
derived from industrial hemp. CBD in bath salts interact with your
body’s CB2 receptors by absorbing through the skin. Because the whole
body is immersed, a smaller amount of CBD can be exponentially more
effective than by other delivery means. The eight-ounce jar retails for
$34.99; the four-ounce package retails for $17.49.

“Warfighter Hemp continues to innovate our product line-up to meet
people’s requests,” said Steve Danyluk, LtCol, USMC (ret) and founder,
Warfighter Hemp. “We support our customers who suffer from the most
chronic pain. With this 6000 mg product and the bath bomb mix, we can
help them by providing them more options.”
Fighting for CBD Legislation
Warfighter Hemp has been on the
front lines to get CBD derived from industrial hemp into the hands of
more Veterans. Currently, the Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) will
not provide CBD or medicinal cannabis to patients who need it.
Warfighter Hemp is working with legislators in the 116th
Congress to re-introduce a bill, H.R.5520
that would allow the V.A. Health Care System to study cannabinoids, CBD,
and ultimately provide it to Veterans at no cost as part of their
existing system. So far, a thousand Veterans currently in the V.A.
Health Care System with service-connected injuries have signed up
through a Warfighter Hemp program to participate in the research as soon
as the Department of Veterans Affairs is ready. Many Veterans have
elected to pay for the CBD on their own rather than take prescribed
opioids and psychiatric medications and are demanding the V.A. Health
Care System dispense CBD as an alternative. Sadly, a large portion of
disabled Veterans can’t afford CBD and are trapped taking nothing at all
for their wartime injuries or they risk becoming addicted to the
medications that are currently dispensed.
“We have urgency around the passage of pro-CBD legislation to resolve
these issues. The Veteran suicide rate continues to be higher than the
civilian population, with addiction to opioids prescribed by the V.A.
being one of the reasons,” said Boone Cutler, Army Veteran, who
witnessed the Veteran medical crisis first-hand the while recovering for
two years at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after
being injured in Iraq and again in the V.A. Health Care System.
In addition to H.R.5520, The
Farm Bill, legislation introduced by Kentucky Senator Mitch
McConnell and which the House passed in December, allows for hemp to be
farmed and sold commercially as an agricultural crop nationwide. Hemp is
now a mainstream option for all Americans, so furthering the opportunity
to fast track CBD into the V.A. Health Care System is a viable and
sensible solution. The United States patent 6630507
on cannabinoids, CBD, further validates the efficacy of CBD beyond what
Veterans are claiming.
“Our warfighters who are under the care at V.A. Hospitals need to know
that help is on the way and other Veterans have their back,” said
Cutler. Cutler is also the creator of the Spartan
Pledge, a simple two sentence oath that a Veteran pledges to a
fellow Veteran(s) that they will reach out if they ever find themselves
in a time of crisis.
CBD is the subject of Innovations,
the Ed Begley, Jr.-hosted program that airs on the Fox Business Network.
Warfighter Hemp and its efforts to get CBD into Veterans’ hands will be
featured in early 2019.
