UK Restaurant Shut Down After Legal “Go-Ahead” on CBD Foods

Lodestar News As far as CBD businesses go, the numbers are only going up. Infused foods, massages, and many more businesses revolving around CBD, or cannabidiol products, are popping up on street corners more than ever. But even with this rapid growth in the market, so too are the legal issues. Since regulation and red-tape are preventing such ease with selling the product, small businesses (and large) are being penalized or crippled with the legality behind the product. Such issues can be anywhere from canceled payment processing through banking services all the way to complete shutdowns and legal fees costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. In the US, CBD products are not regulated or monitored, so there is no official way for governing agencies to know if the product is satisfying all legal limits of THC (less than .3%). Because of this, police forces are within their rights to shut down such sales, and is why banking services try to stay away from this market. Although this is for the US, there are similar problems in the UK, and one business called “Canna Kitchen” can vouch for this. After Sam Evolution, the founder of Canna Kitchen, had gone to several governing agencies for the permission to sell CBD infused foods, he was given the thumbs up from both the police as well as the UK Trading Standards Agency.

Lodestar News It’s no secret that there is a disturbance in the world of CBD.

Grandmother Arrested for Carrying CBD Oil in Texas

Lodestar News Lena Bartula, an accomplished artist as well as a respected grandmother was forced to go through two days of agitation an, what she would call, a “nightmare.” Can we understand why a 71 year old lady was arrested as she tried to pass through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on the way to her granddaughter in Oregon? For carrying CBD (cannabidiol) in her purse. Lena uses CBD oil for her pain management, as well as thousands of other Americans. When the officers confiscated her oil, she was placed under arrest. She was then transported to the airport jail, where she was shackled and placed in a cell for two days. She describes the event as nightmarish. “I slept on the floor, my head next to the toilet.” According to US Customs, this isn’t the first incident of people being detained/arrested for possession of CBD oil. The most recent update on the case is that she is facing a felony drug charge, even though the product is legal when containing less than .3% THC. The arresting officers are currently testing the product for this exact number, and the result could leave her as a felon. She will never put CBD in her purse again, she says, and no doubt will put a hindrance on her in the future. On the federal level, hemp was just made legal as part...
