On the US Hemp Roundtable website, there are several downloadable resources available for you to send to your legislature adding your voice to support hemp-friendly language being added to the farm bill. The downloads are written with some arguments for you, but it would be even more effective for you to personalize the email by telling your representatives why hemp and hemp products are so important to you, your business, and/or your farm community. Please keep in mind that the focus is on the farm economy and freedom of choice for consumers – please avoid any medical claims or advocacy for marijuana.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a promising phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. It has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process. CBD is a non–psychotoxic (i.e. it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.
THE GOAL IS BALANCE
Since its discovery in 1992, researchers have been investigating the existence of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is made of cannabinoid receptors, self-made cannabis-like compounds, and enzymes that create and inactivate them. The ECS is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
WHY IS HEMP-DERIVED CBD OIL IMPORTANT FOR THE ECS?
Because CBD modulates the endocannabinoid tone and may keep healthy people healthy.
“THE ECS IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE AND IT RELATES MESSAGES THAT AFFECT HOW WE RELAX, EAT, SLEEP, FORGET AND PROTECT.” – Vincenzo Di Marzo

There’s been much debate suggesting that CBD derived from agricultural hemp has the same properties as cannabis-derived CBD, making it a potential alternative for patients who can’t legally access medical marijuana but can legally acquire hemp-derived CBD products. A lot of people aren’t entirely familiar with hemp-derived CBD, however. What exactly is there to know?
Join us for this informative lecture, where you will:
■ Find out how CBD was discovered, its natural sources, including the differences between psychoactive THC and non-psychoactive CBD
■ Discover the interactions of CBD and the human endocannabinoid system as it relates to human health
■ Learn why hemp is the most eco-friendly way to balance the endocannabinoid system
■ Determine if agricultural hemp-derived CBD is the best option for you

Pacific Coast Naturals is exhibiting at the EarthFair, San Diego event…
Date: Sunday, April 22, 2018
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: Balboa Park, San Diego
Site: Prado East, Area 2
Space: Booth #220 (between Arboretum and Natural History Museum)
We have 60,000 reasons to exhibit…YOU…everyone who attends! We gladly present quality Natural Products that not only meet and exceed the natural quality standards but also we convey each vendor’s heartbeat — to be responsible citizens of The Earth!
Stop by our booth and find out about our vendors and the products they manufacture with love and care for The Earth and the people who live there.
It all started with an initiative from Nordic Naturals and Carter’s Kids teaming up to provide underprivileged children to win a new playground where they can run, be happy and be healthy. From July to September, Pacific Coast Naturals joined in to set up promotions with our region’s natural channel stores to sell Nordic Natural’s Children’s products. The “BUY A BOTTLE, BUILD A PLAYGROUND” initiative is where Nordic Naturals donated money and time for some very deserving kids to promote their health and well-being. The winner chosen by Carter’s Kids? Webster’s Elementary School in Long Beach!
Then the day came to build it – a Nordic Natural’s nautical themed playground befitting the seaside community of Long Beach. From 8:00 AM to it’s finish it was hot and grueling work. But when we heard the sound of giggling kids we stopped, looked, and then all of the sweat and hard work was worthwhile…seeing these happy kids, jumping up and down while hanging on to the chain-link fence happy that they will have a new place to play.
Pacific Coast Naturals would like to thank everyone: the Nordic Naturals team with Jackie Hansmann and Lauren Wilkins, Carter Oosterhouse, Carter’s Kids, the sales team at PCN, and a special thanks to all of the volunteers from Sprout’s who showed up to help build the playground. It could not have been done without all of you.
On the evening of July 12, 2016, PCN hosted a co-branded dinner training at the Westside Tavern, Los Angeles. Training for Acure Organics whose all-natural and effective products create beauty outwardly and Nordic Naturals whose high-quality Omega supplements provide the beauty by nutritional support from within. Educators Tammy Ball (Acure) and Karla Schmidt (Nordic Naturals) together with Pacific Coast Naturals coordinated this special dinner training. Ossie Cohen was the “game show host” providing product and brand-themed games that were engaging and caused everyone to have an enjoyable time. It was a great evening with 60 people attending representing about 20 different southern California stores. Informationally packed presentations where prizes were given: Nordic Naturals beach bags, product, movie tickets and even hand made jewelry created especially by Kristen Biel, Darryl’s wife. From the beginning the guests were given samples and provided with a wonderful dinner prepared by the chefs at Westside Tavern. As we were winding up the night, some of the staff at Westside Tavern mentioned they had not seen a dinner training with so much participation and fun. To that, I thought, “now that is how we roll”…meaning, Pacific Coast Naturals with two of our vendors working together creating… another thing of beauty.
Thank you, everyone, for your time, hard work, support, and participation in the success of the evening’s dinner training. Special thanks to Karla and Tammy for jobs well done, and to Westside Tavern for the great eats and fine service. Now to the brain-child…way to go Ossie!
First our awesome educators: Karla Schmidt of Nordic Naturals and Tammy Ball of Acure Organics. That’s the gals. Now us men of PCN: Bruce Weyman, Ossie Cohen, and Darryl Biel.
