According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, close to one quarter of adults in the United States – some 23% – have arthritis. It’s the leading cause of work disability, with symptoms that include pain, aching, stiffness, and joint swelling. Other symptoms can include slowed healing times, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and stiffness in the mornings. There’s no cure at this time, and treatments include rest, occupational or physical therapy, drugs, exercise, and even surgery. It’s no surprise that baby boomers are increasingly turning to alternatives. And CBD is one of them. Read more
Kynd Cannabis Company got its start crafting premium cannabis products intended to benefit medical patients in need of therapeutic alternatives to traditional pharmaceuticals. And while we’ve branched into concentrations for adult-use needs and interests, we continue to proudly develop the medicines so many people need.

We love challenging the stigma around cannabis, as evidenced by our amazing creative ambassadors – there’s the jewelry maker, the photographer, the tattoo artist, the DJ, and the gypsy wagon guy.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held its first-ever CBD regulations meeting at the end of May, with manufacturers and scientists practically begging for a regulatory framework to control the current “Wild West” climate. The FDA played coy, insisting that a number of questions remain about the safety of cannabis compounds. The upshot for the consumer? Educate yourself about cannabis. Don’t assume that CBD added to an energy drink is doing anything for you. And when it comes to CBD oil in particular, here’s what to know about anecdotal evidence, testing, and consistency. Read more
An attorney by the name of Ian A. Stewart recently wrote an intelligent article about CBD and the outright false claim that it is non-psychoactive. It’s a statement made in just about every article or news story you can find about CBD – including posts right here – but as cannabis becomes more mainstream, it’s important to strive for accuracy. The truth is, CBD isn’t non-psychoactive. It’s non-intoxicating. And while the difference may seem minor, it’s significant. Read more

Anxiety is supposed to be a natural reaction to stress in our environment, which can be physical, emotional, or chemical. This adaptive response serves dual purposes – helping us detect and avoid potential threats, and serving as motivation to better a situation.
Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to manage anxiety appropriately, and that’s especially true in our overly-scheduled, overly-busy lives. Between meetings, relationships, traffic, negative media, finances, and our own busy schedules, it’s understandable that the majority of us lead stressful lives, and chronic anxiety is an unpleasant side effect.
More than a quarter of American adults in the United States have anxiety disorders, and many turn to pharmaceuticals for help. From Prozac and Zoloft to Valium and Xanax, these drugs can run the gamut from ineffective to downright addictive.

Wondering about the differences between THC and THCA? You’re not alone. While THC is familiar to anyone in the cannabis world, THCA may be news to you. THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid if we’re being fancy, is yet another cannabis compound that is already proving its impressive therapeutic abilities. And while it may sound similar to […]
