ACCESS CBD LAUNCHES AS THE UK’S LOWEST EVER PRICED QUALITY CBD OIL RANGE


Prices that will save the UK consumer an average of 80% vs. other brands will mean that CBD Supplements can now be ‘For Everyone’, as BRITISH CANNABIS® launches ACCESS CBD™

Berkshire, UK, 05/June/2020: BRITISH CANNABIS, the UK’s largest producer, manufacturer and distributor of legal cannabis-derived products, has unveiled ACCESS CBD – a range of great tasting CBD oils, made with high quality ingredients and industry-leading reliability yet 80% cheaper than market average prices.

Overnight, the release of ACCESS CBD™ will bring CBD (Cannabidiol), a legal-to-take, non-psychoactive element of the cannabis plant, within the reach of consumers with any budget. ACCESS CBD® will cost on average only £1.49 per 100mg of active CBD ingredient, setting a new affordable price point for CBD in the UK. Price studies by leading market intelligence firm, CBD Intel, placed the average price per 100mg of CBD across over 1,700 CBD oils at approximately £7.89. This would make ACCESS CBD™ cost 81% less than that average competitor price.

Even when retail offers such as the widely adopted ‘3-for-2’ are taken into account, ACCESS CBD® will still be around one-half to two-thirds of the price of its nearest competitors, without consumers being locked into high-value multi-buy deals.

The UK’s lowest ever prices for quality CBD oils, with Natural, Citrus and Berry flavours. Recommended Retail Prices:
o £5.99 for 300mg
o £9.99 for 600mg
o £16.99 for 1200mg
o £29.99 for 2400mg

Great tasting, natural flavours, expertly crafted by combining plant terpenes – compounds found not only in hemp plants, but in many forms of fruits and vegetables

No-nonsense packaging, with clear labelling information and Strength Indicator bars

• A 40 Point Quality Assurance check.

Publicly available test reports on the accuracy and safety of the product and its ingredients

QR codes on the label, to give instant access to quality reports for the product

Certified THC-Free status. With all ACCESS CBD® products containing less than 0.01% THC

Full compliance within the FSA’s Novel Foods regulations – meaning that it will be here to stay past March 202

Made in England by BRITISH CANNABIS®

• “Profits donated to NHS Heroes” A pledge to donate a minimum of 10% of net profits to UK registered charities that support the NHS.

A Price Promise for the consumer. Find the same strength, class and matching type of CBD Oil supplement available cheaper anywhere else, within 30 days of buying our CBD oils at ACCESSCBD.uk and we will refund your purchase in full.

BRITISH CANNABIS® CEO, Tom Whettem, celebrates this radical new launch by commenting:

“Now felt the time to really move the CBD industry forward into the mainstream and break down the barriers that may be holding some people back from adopting CBD supplements long term.

Recent YouGov studies showed that nearly 1-in-10 UK Adults had tried CBD. But further research has shown that over half of those stop using CBD after the first bottle due to poor products with no traceability and nowhere near the amount of CBD stated on the label, or the high cost of repeat purchase. ACCESS CBD™ is gimmick-free, high quality, low priced CBD leading the way in transparency and reliability.

We will also be giving back to charities that support our NHS. “Profits donated to NHS Heroes” is not something we just thought up to boost sales – the price and quality of ACCESS CBD™ alone should do that. In the simplest terms, when we say we will pledge 10% of profits, we mean that we will ringfence at least £1 out of every £10 of profits made from the sale of ACCESS CBD® products and pay that throughout the year to charities that support NHS workers, such as ‘NHS Charities Together’.

This is our way of providing the UK public with a CBD supplement brand they can be proud of. ACCESS CBD is truly ‘CBD for Everyone’.”

About ACCESS CBD™

ACCESS CBD™ is a range of premium-quality CBD Oil food supplements, made available at accessible prices. The product of over 5 years of CBD industry experience from leading UK Seed-to-Shelf company, BRITISH CANNABIS®, the brand’s 40 Point Quality Assurance means that ACCESS CBD is low in price, but high on quality and reliability. A unique blend of CBD, hemp oils and MCT oils, ACCESS CBD® is available in 4 strengths and, at release, will have 3 great flavours crafted by combining natural plant terpenes:

Natural: with 22 added terpene compounds to faithfully recreate the flavour of natural hemp oil

Citrus: A fruity, zingy mix of zesty citrus fruits

Berry: A tangy, fruity flavour with jammy notes

IX Water Launches SEC Regulated Crowdfunding for Products to Treat Wastewater Produced by Oil and Gas Industry


Golden, Colorado USA— IX Power Clean Water, Inc. announced today that it is raising funds through an SEC-regulated crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine (StartEngine.com/Ix-Water) to enter the market with its machines that clean highly contaminated water produced by oil and gas recovery, mining, and other industries.

The oil and gas industry generates 150 billion barrels of natural wastewater each year. IX Water’s advanced system treats a wide variety of dangerous pollutants in industrial wastewater such as organic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and dissolved salts, which are all hazardous to human health.

Instead of disposing of the toxic water underground or in surface ponds, or treating it with even more chemicals, IX Water cleans the water so it can be used again. The cleaned water meets or beats the stringent standards set in the U.S., European Union, and China.

Oil and gas companies currently spend $75 billion per year to treat naturally produced wastewater. IX Water costs at least 50 percent less than traditional treatment and disposal methods and it creates a new source of clean water for reuse by industry, recycled for other uses, or discharged to the environment. IX Water’s goal is to provide clean water for 50 cents to $1 per barrel.

The technology was invented by scientists at the world-renowned Los Alamos National Laboratory in a unique collaboration with New Mexico Tech and the University of Texas to provide an economical, efficient, and complete system to treat oil and gas produced water.

Musicline launches a free-to-join, collaborative, online project for children all over the world.


Calling all singers, dancers and actors!

Musicline launches a free-to-join, collaborative, online project for children all over the world.

Steve Titford, writer for Musicline School Musicals, has composed and produced a brand new song called “Back Together (IRL)” (IRL meaning In Real Life, of course!). It is an isolation escape anthem about lasting friendship, bringing folks together regardless of distance. Powerful, positive, fun.

Steve and Musicline want to make a global recording with as many singers as possible, along with an awesome music video. Solo spots will be available in the video for the best performances.

All children need is a smartphone, tablet or computer along with parent/carer permission. All children need to do is video themselves performing the song to the best of their ability and send it to Musicline.

Musicline have created an online portal to make signing up, granting permission and uploading submissions as quick and easy as possible. This can be found at https://www.musiclinedirect.com/online. Here children will also find lots of resources to assist in learning, practising, and recording their performance. Musicline have provided:

  • MP3 downloads of the song with Steve’s demo vocal
  • MP3 of just backing track music
  • “Karaoke Style” learning aid called “Sing it!”
  • PDF downloads of the lyrics and music notation
  • Tuition videos – Steve has also uploaded several tuition videos with lots of great hints and tips on how to get the best performance possible.

Steve and Musicline have tried to provide everything, so all children need to concentrate on is their performance and having fun!

Musicline Managing Director Mike Smith said: “As schools all over the world have been closed due to Covid-19, we thought the best use of our time would be to create a project that children can be creative with without leaving their homes. Performing Arts is incredibly important for children’s confidence and mental health. It’s also a great way to ‘connect’ with old friends and new. It’s a great way to blow of steam and have some fun during this difficult time. ”

Notes to Editor:

Steve Titford, most known for his debut school musical “Shakespeare Rocks!”, writes and produces regularly for Musicline. He lives in Caleta De Fuste on Fuerteventura, whilst Musicline is based in Birmingham, UK, so they know a thing or two about online collaboration.

Musicline is a family-run business which has been publishing children’s musicals for more than 30 years. They pride themselves on producing musicals trusted and loved by thousands of young people and educators.

Glo Launches Online Health and Beauty Tutorials / Webinars to Help Home-Workers and Their Mental Health


Kelly Skipper, Director at Glo, explains why it was important for a small female-run business to pivot quickly and offer online alternatives:

“The current Covid-19 epidemic affects each and every one of us on many different levels, but one common ground is that everyone is under an immense amount of pressure, whether it is juggling work with home schooling, financial pressures or feeling isolated and anxious and whilst we are unable to offer treatments and services which would normally help them at a time like this, it felt like a natural fit to move as many of our services as we can online whilst also supporting our clients and their home workers. With Mental Health Awareness Week on the horizon we are hopeful that companies will be looking to invest in the health and wellbeing of their team and that our webinars and tutorials provide an educational and engaging solution for them”

Royal College of Radiologists, a Glo client, are currently providing online yoga classes for their workforce and said the following:

“We use Glo to provide yoga classes in our office on a regular basis, but as most of our staff are currently working from home Glo have been able to provide us with online yoga instead. The ability for staff to be able to continue with their yoga practise whilst in their homes and at the same time assist in reducing stress and improving their wellbeing, has been an important for us during the coronavirus pandemic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kelly and her team at Glo.”

Phoebe – HR Officer

Glo Pamper is a nationwide company that have been operating for over 13 years. They provide professional mobile therapists, teachers and stylists for pamper parties, corporate events and for accommodations along with wellbeing services for companies.

FULLBAY LAUNCHES INITIATIVE TO GIVE BACK TO HEAVY-DUTY COMMUNITY


[Phoenix, AZ – May 13, 2020] Fullbay, the leading shop management software for heavy-duty repair shops, is pleased to introduce Fullbay Cares, the company’s new initiative designed to give back to the heavy-duty repair community. The ongoing program will provide assistance via charitable donations, educational resources, employee volunteering, and more. To kick off the program, Fullbay Cares is currently hosting a month-long contribution to help those who have been impacted by COVID-19.

Throughout May, every time a U.S.-based shop signs up with Fullbay, Fullbay Cares will make a donation to Feeding America; for each Canadian-based shop that signs up, they will contribute to Food Banks Canada. Both hunger-relief organizations stock hundreds of food banks across North America, helping to feed hungry families and raise awareness.

“This isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s the only thing to do,” said Jacob Findlay, CEO and co-founder of Fullbay. “Those in the heavy-duty community continue to put themselves on the front lines to ensure trucks keep running and people keep receiving food and supplies. We knew we had to do something. Too often we see something going wrong and say, ‘Why doesn’t somebody help?’ This is our chance to help – to do something.’”

Interstate Billing Service, American Diesel Training Center, and Find a Wrench have also jumped aboard, partnering with Fullbay Cares to support its mission to give back.

“Interstate Billing Service is proud to participate along with Fullbay in this campaign to give back to the charitable organizations serving our communities and feeding families in need,” said Jason Windham, president of Interstate Billing Service. “Our mission is to help our customers and team members prosper, and that is only possible when our communities prosper. We have been amazed to see how our customers and team members are giving back during this time, and we are proud to do our part.”

Fullbay Cares is a long-term initiative to bring together the heavy-duty repair community, connecting partners and providing assistance to the essential workforce keeping commercial fleets operating in good times and bad.

About Fullbay
Fullbay provides heavy-duty repair shop management software to streamline workflows and improve efficiency. Launched in 2015, Fullbay helps shops increase technician productivity, invoice faster, better manage parts, connect with other applications, and more. By reducing administrative and management tasks that have slowed down shops for years, Fullbay customers have better-run and more profitable businesses. For more information, visit fullbay.com.

American Addiction Centers Leads the Addiction Treatment Industry as it Launches Onsite COVID-19 Testing at all of its Treatment Centers


https://www.prfire.com/

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., April 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Addiction Centers (AAC) is leading the way in the addiction treatment industry by now testing each patient admitted to any one of its treatment centers for COVID-19. The new safety protocol is significant news for patients seeking addiction treatment in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Those struggling with addiction need those services now,” said Andrew McWilliams, AAC CEO. “We don’t need to let COVID-19 be a barrier to treatment. Last year alone, 67,000 people died from drug overdoses in the U.S. That’s almost 200 people per day dying from this deadly disease. In addition, an estimated 88,000 people die annually from alcohol-related causes.”

Tests will also be available to current patients and staff exhibiting symptoms, in accordance with guidelines from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. AAC’s lab, Addiction Labs, worked tirelessly to piece together all the necessary elements to conduct the testing with fast turnarounds of 48 hours or less.

“The safety of our patients and staff is paramount and we were not going to take ‘no’ for an answer,” said Shannon Myers, Addiction Labs supervisor. “And with that came hundreds, if not thousands, of phone calls with vendors.”

The lab also went beyond standard testing protocols to ensure an accuracy rate of 95% or higher.

“The accuracy of the test is extremely important to us because our clients are all in the facility together with the staff for extended periods of time,” said Joe Olechowski, Addiction Labs genetics research, and development supervisor. “Providing a false negative report to a positive patient has the potential to affect the entire facility. Our test looks at three gene targets where other tests may only look at one gene target, which means the potential for false negatives is far higher.”

AAC is one of a few treatment providers to have an in-house lab and the capability to offer COVID-19 testing for its patients. Addiction Labs has the capacity to run 2,400 tests a day.

“We do know that behavioral health services, from a COVID-19 testing perspective, is very underserved,” said McWilliams. “Our goal is to utilize the testing we’ve developed to not only serve our patients but to open it up to the broader behavioral health community at large.”

Folio Launches Mobile Health Passport to Help Safely Reopen Economies


Folio has today announced release of its Mobile Health Passport to enable instant digital verification of any user’s coronavirus-related health status via their smartphone.

As countries move on from lockdowns, authorities and health institutions need to ensure the risks of secondary infection peaks are minimized.  For economies to reopen and citizens to mobilize, authorities need to quickly and accurately verify the health status of individuals, and many governments are urgently exploring the use of plastic health passports and wristbands.

Folio’s streamlined, contactless digital-wallet alternative eliminates the need for plastic cards and wristbands (potential Covid-19 vectors) for the vast majority of citizens.

Once citizens are tested for coronavirus, health entities can register their health status and issue them with an immutable, biometrically secure digital health passport to their smartphones.  This digitized health passport will enable increased and safer citizen mobility as governments begin to reopen their economies.

The health passport is being provided for free to governments around the world.

With its advanced biometrics and online verification, Folio provides certainty that the bearer of the passport is exactly who they claim to be with a verifiable health status at that point in time.

Folio’s digital wallet allows every individual to be in complete control of their privacy.  Their credentials are secured locally on their smartphone, accessible only by them, and shared upon their consent to verifiable authorities.

“In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have tailored our digital identity platform to incorporate this new Mobile Health Passport and are already working with governments that need quick and convenient health status verification,” said Tatiana Cogevina, Folio’s CEO.

“This dedicated solution can be securely deployed for any individual with a smartphone, which is about 3.5Bn people around the world.”

Functions of Folio’s Smart Health Passport solution:

  • Issue mobile certificates that verify health status instantly to an individual’s digital wallet
  • Assure no certificate can be spoofed, tampered or misused by another person
  • Remotely revoke or impose limitations of certificates
  • Enable controls on user access to locations, facilities, and services via biometric authentication

Folio’s Mobile Health Passport also provides a platform for ongoing health related interactions and monitoring (e.g. questionnaires, surveys, notifications).

About Folio:

Folio provides digital identity solutions for government and businesses that need the highest levels of assurance when verifying the credentials of individuals.

Folio has helped millions prove their identity for critical operations such as voting, customer onboarding, and complex regulatory compliance processes.

The Folio app works on most Android and IOS smartphones, conforms to the highest international standards, and is used daily around the world to manage key ID documents like passports and driver’s licenses.

Satipharm launches new Advanced CBD products – safeguarding your health and wellness


Health and wellness company Satipharm has launched their new CBD Advanced range starting with two products – Active and Focus. In addition to CBD, these capsules include targeted vitamins to help safeguard your health.

The Active capsules contain Satipharm’s patented CBD microbeads plus vitamins A, D, K and E. These vitamins have been specifically chosen to complement the CBD, for the effects they have on muscles, skin, bones and vision. Importantly, the Active capsules contain 200% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin D, which supports the functioning of the immune system. This ensures the body has adequate levels of vitamin D needed to produce the antimicrobial proteins that kill viruses and bacteria.

The Focus capsules contain the CBD microbeads, plus a targeted selection of B vitamins to support mental performance, psychological function and the reduction of tiredness & fatigue. B vitamins are necessary for creating neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, including serotonin and dopamine. Vitamin B6 also contributes to normal immune function.

Jonathan Hartshorn, CEO of Satipharm commented: “Supporting the health of our minds and bodies is always important. Getting quality sleep, minimising stress and getting sufficient vitamin D are three simple ways to help our immune systems function well and fight infections. The launch of our Advanced Active and Focus products enables individuals to take the right supplements to support their mental and physical wellbeing.”

Satipharm’s CBD Advanced range is powered by their patented Gelpell® technology which protects the cannabinoids by embedding them in microspheres. This Gelpell® technology has been clinically proven to increase the bioavailability of CBD, making Satipharm capsules the best way to take CBD. Taking a Satipharm 10mg CBD capsule is equivalent to taking 3.5 times the dose (35mg) of CBD oil.

About Satipharm
Satipharm is a health and wellness company, specialising in the development of cannabinoid-based products and focusing on clinical evidence-based recommendations to customers and patients. The Company’s mission is to deliver the highest quality products designed specifically for the needs of its consumers.

CBD (reference Dr Perry Solomon, CMO HelloMD)
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring active cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, CBD has no intoxicating effect (high). These cannabinoids are just two of at least 113 identified in cannabis. CBD is most commonly used to treat insomnia, depression, anxiety and joint pain. Preliminary clinical reports indicate CBD to have analgesic properties, in addition to anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-psychoactive, and anti-convulsant properties. CBD achieves this by directly (or indirectly) affecting neurological receptors responsible for pain modulation, inflammation regulation, and mood and stress management.

Bioavailability – is the proportion of a consumed substance which enters the bloodstream when introduced to the body and so is able to have an active effect on the body. A substance (such as CBD oil) may be readily absorbed but undergo significant metabolism by the liver before the active cannabinoids reach the circulation, thereby reducing its effect in the body.

Sober Dance Party + App Launches Despite COVID19

Sober Dance Party + App Launches Despite COVID19

Secret Dance Addiction Launches with Virtual Dance Parties to Replace In-Person Events

Denver, CO: Secret Dance Addiction, a dance party and social community for the sober curious movement, announced today that they will be launching their live streaming events beginning April 10th, 2020. Once the ban on live events is lifted due to COVID19, SDA will incorporate in-person parties in Denver, Los Angeles, and New York, expanding to 20+ cities around the world. Until then, the mindful dance party will launch their social movement from the Secret Dance Addiction (SDA) app, allowing their virtual parties to be accessed by anyone, anywhere in the world.

SDA is so much more than a fad driven by sobriety, current live streaming trends, and EDM drug overdose stories. Secret Dance Addiction reimagines dance parties, intentionally leaving out modern-day distractions like drugs or alcohol. Millennials and 21+ Generation Zs are drinking much less, but don’t want to miss out – they want to experience dance parties in the same way drinkers do. Secret Dance Addiction is leading a mindfulness movement and a desire to have social gatherings less focused on alcohol, by keeping the focus on health conscious, empowering experiences, both on and off the dance floor.

Keeping the spirit of the old-school rave alive, you won’t find SDA on Facebook or Instagram. Secret Dance Addiction created their own ad-free social media community that can be downloaded on Google Play or iTunes, or has a web-based version. SDA is bringing mindfulness to the dance party movement by sharing meditations, interviews with sober influencers, and blazing the mocktail trail with tasty recipes from inspired mixologists, all shared from within the SDA app. Live streamed DJ sets and curated content are shared daily, and members are encouraged to collaborate with like-minded, self-empowering party people through chat and themed groups.

Also a live event series, SDA hosts dance parties in secret locations that are lit up with dance music, brilliantly costumed performers, and show-stopping surprise acts. Mocktails and other delicious beverages are available in the place of alcohol.

“We want to take out the unhealthy parts of clubbing; becoming intoxicated, hangovers, drama, feeling out of control… and instead bring people together with a party positive experience,” explains Amber Handby, co-founder. “SDA is where nobody ever has to feel out of place because they are not drinking.”

The founders of SDA are husband and wife DJ duo DoubleCrush, Michael and Amber “Ambie” Handby. Entertainment industry influencers, the couple tours from gig to gig in their 35’ travel trailer and speak at mindfulness events.

Michael Handby has clear views on mainstream social media giants like Facebook. “We believe shared experiences, interests, and beliefs connect us far more deeply than data, followers, or “likes” ever could. We intend to build a social media platform upon which you can dance and enjoy yourself. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your data will be sold to some random company, or used to throw an election. When you log into SDA, you’re there to dance and celebrate a healthy lifestyle, that’s it.”

Currently free to join, SDA is looking to launch live events beginning in Denver in summer of 2020. Until then, the app is hosting party positive virtual events that feature DJs, live performers, and member collaboration. Members are able to connect through the SDA app, creating a strong community connection that is free from the ads and negativity often seen on mainstream social media.

About Secret Dance Addiction:

Secret Dance Addiction is the new era of dance party and social platform, designed to free your mind and fuel your soul. 100% free from bad vibes and hangovers, SDA hosts health conscious, multigenerational dance parties around the world. No intoxicants needed.
