Major Cannabis Industry Media Outlets Recognize CFCR’s Efforts to Support FDA Regulation of CBD
A pair of major media outlets that actively cover the cannabis industry recently lauded the efforts of the Council for Cannabis Regulation (CFCR) for the role the non-profit hopes to play in support of a nationwide effort to encourage the US Food and Drug Administration (FDAs) to expand its discretion on enforcement and issue specific policy guidelines relative to federal cannabinoid hemp regulations.
Benzinga, a daily online platform that provides articles on cannabis and hemp stocks and news about CBD, psychedelics, business and culture, praised CFCR for its 26-page response to a Federal Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from qualified, interested industry players. In its submission, CFCR described a marketplace that has metamorphosized significantly since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Benzinga writes: This bill, while an important step forward, opened Pandora’s box, allowing some unscrupulous businesses to peddle poorly regulated CBD products. As a result, consumers are confronted with a bewildering assortment of options, some of which may not be safe. CFCR is candid in its depiction: a terrain marred by “bad actors” and “false labeling,” where consumers are left clueless about which products to trust. Consumers have no ability to differentiate between a safe and unsafe product.”
Cannabis Business Times acknowledged the association’s push to encourage the FDA to act swiftly to do its part to reform the marketplace, an action that is desperately needed to both improve the state of the cannabis industry and advance consumer protection.
Marijuana Moment, another influential online outlet, noted CFCR’s support for an industry-wide push to the FDA to adopt universal labeling of cannabis and CBD products.
For CFCR Founder and Board Chair Sheri Orlowitz, the coverage certainly adds credibility to the organization’s mission. “I’m very excited about the position we are suggestion and I’m grateful that a few extremely influential media outlets also recognize the merits,” she said. “On the back end of this, we’re going to go to Congress and explain to them what FDA has been doing with regards to regulation and also what more they could be doing to regulate.”
🌿 Breaking News: Organigram Unveils Debut Collection of THCV Products Crafted from Moncton’s Whole Flower Harvest
The first lineup of THCV products enabled by Organigram’s strategic investment in Phylos Bioscience
Organigram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: OGI) (TSX: OGI), (the “Company” or “Organigram”), a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to launch its first range of whole-flower derived THCV products through the Company’s popular SHRED and newly re-launched Trailblazer brands.
Reaffirming its commitment to forward-looking innovation, Organigram strives to maintain a competitive advantage in the cannabis industry, most recently through its strategic investment in Phylos Bioscience, a US-based leader in cannabis genetics. Through this investment, Organigram cultivates and extracts THCV in-house in its state-of-the-art Moncton facility and is currently believed to be the only Canadian licensed producer (LP) to do so.
THCV is a novel and rare cannabinoid often referenced for its appetite-suppressing effects1. THCV is a compelling offering for consumers because, like CBD, it is reported to be non-psychoactive 2, and acts as an antagonist for some of the qualities associated with THC. For example, THCV is reported to mitigate the appetite stimulation 1 associated with THC, earning it the nickname “Diet Weed”, and is also gaining popularity for its reported ‘super Sativa effects of wellness, energy, and focus.2
Organigram has exclusive Canadian rights to all THCV cultivars from Phylos, including Get S**t Done (1:3 THC: THCV) and Joyride (1:1 THC: THCV), two popular cultivars with THCV concentrations that are significantly higher than anything else currently available in the market. Phylos has developed, and continues to develop, proprietary high-THCV genetics in various THC: THCV ratios where each ratio creates a differentiated user experience and can be delivered in a wide range of product formats.
“At Organigram, our commitment to scientific excellence, rigorous research, and consumer-driven innovation sets us apart in the industry,” says Borna Zlamalik, Senior Vice President of Innovation and R&D at Organigram. “We are currently the only licensed Canadian cannabis company to be cultivating and extracting from THCV flower, meaning that our products are made from the entire cannabis flower, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds. They are extracted directly from the cannabis plant using methods like CO2 and solventless cold water extraction. Our products are naturally (and not synthetically) derived, not created through chemical processes in a laboratory setting. This is a testament to our extraordinary R&D, exceptional talent, and the incredible capabilities we have in-house,” he added.
Organigram’s first THCV range of products includes:
- SHRED’ems Guava Lime Go–Time: This exotic new flavor profile, bursting with guava and lime flavors provides a unique cannabinoid experience with an initial 1:1 THC: THCV (10mg THC + 10mg THCV) ratio per pack. An entry point for those looking to experience this new minor cannabinoid.
- Trailblazer Zen Garden Grapefruit: A THCV-forward, grapefruit-flavored sugar-free gummy, that offers more THCV than any other gummy in the market with an initial 1:2 THC: THCV (10mg THC + 20mg THCV) ratio per pack.
“In this era of heightened awareness, we recognize that consumers expect more from cannabis producers, and our commitment as an industry-leading Licensed Producer is to exceed those expectations. By harnessing the power of THCV through our strategic investment, we are reshaping the cannabis experience for consumers,” says Megan McCrae, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Organigram.
