Super Bowl winner and NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre recently announced he would be the public face of a new CBD company, Green Eagle.

Favre is now 50, and after one of the longest careers in the sport as quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and other teams, he has decided to use his fame to teach his fans about the wonders of CBD.

“I’ve turned down a lot of endorsements over my career simply because it just wasn’t a good fit,” Favre told FOX Business. “But this was a product that I could relate to because it works. I’ve tried it, it’s drug-free, and I can certainly speak volumes about what pain pills can do to you. Any alternative to addictive pain relief, I’m for, and this is one of them.”

CBD has grown wildly popular in the time since industrial hemp was legalized at the end of 2018. Willie Nelson, Rob Gronkowski, Martha Stewart, Snoop Dogg and others have jumped on board the CBD hype train.

People love to use CBD for their chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and other uses. Only one prescription CBD drug has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration but its use in the nutritional supplements and wellness sectors is nearly ubiquitous.

“People know my story,” Favre said, according to Forbes. “I think this is a perfect fit for me and it works. But people have to try it for themselves. Don’t take my word for it.”

While CBD promotion is popular for athletes and other celebrities, but hemp’s other uses tend to get less attention.

Even more uses have been developed for industrial hemp beyond the CBD oil and clothing. The fibers have long been used in textiles, rope-making and ship-building.

Some hemp innovators even use the substance for construction material, including in methods such as hempcrete, a cutting edge renewable construction resource.

For more traditional recovery-based CBD oils, topical lotions and tinctures like those sold by Green Eagle, celebrity star-power is more useful than gimmicky products or newfangled uses.

“We couldn’t think of anyone better to work with to mirror the ethos and mission of Green Eagle than Brett Favre, a tough guy who represents passion, endurance and perseverance,” said Green Eagle CEO Joseph Smadja, according to Forbes.

CBD Dabs/flower? What should I expect?

Republished by Plato

Published

So I’ve been staying off weed since march of this year so I could pass drug tests for work if I needed to and now since I get my first paycheck pretty soon I’ve been thinking about CBD flower or Dabs specifically dabs. I had mostly smoked flower and got carts (from disp) but I had only done dabs once. but the torch I had gotten was pretty cheap and it had melted whilst using it and I didn’t properly do it so I had to kind of free base what I had. But since then I’ve thought that maybe doing CBD dabs would be a better alternative to tincture since it get’s to the head quicker and my tolerance for weed is about 0. But I’m still iffy considering the reputation Dabs have. I’ve been taking a look at different brands but secret nature and extract labs have kind of got my attention. Both have a pretty good reputation and secret nature has lab test PDFs and codes you can scan with their flower and extracts. But I’m still pretty on the fence on what to do personally. I feel like I’d be better off with flower but I don’t want to smell like weed and I don’t want to burn my lungs off taking a hot dab.

Abstract

Background: Biliary system ascariasis can be a rare cause of acute abdomen.

Patient report: A 70-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain for two weeks. She complained of a right upper quadrant (RUQ) pain, intermittent vomiting and weight loss. Physical examination showed RUQ and epigastric tenderness without rebound tenderness or guarding. Laboratory finding exhibited leukocytosis and mildly elevated liver enzymes.

Results: Abdominal sonography showed distended gallbladder and a tubular lesion inside the common bile duct (CBD) in favor of a parasitic lesion. A large ascaris roundworm and blood clots were extracted from the CBD by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and sphincterotomy. After 7 days, the disease process was complicated with a subhepatic abscess formation which was managed conservatively. Finally, the patient was discharged home in fair condition after 12 days of hospitalization.

Conclusions: Ascariasis should be considered in endemic areas and early endoscopic intervention and medical therapy can be effective for extrahepatic involvement.

Keywords: Abdominal abscess; abdominal pain; ascariasis; common bile duct; endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
