101 CBD CEO Justin Benton Lets His Light Shine on The Hoban Minute Law Group Podcast

101 CBD CEO Justin Benton Lets His Light Shine on The Hoban Minute Law Group Podcast

“This has been by far one of the most fun and just absolutely enjoyable episodes of the Hoban Minute.  Justin, thank you for bringing all this energy and bringing all these positive vibes to the show, and all you do. You are just a shining light, man.”

A must-listen podcast with three of the top OG’s in the hemp arena: Hoban Law Group’s Bob Hoban and Eric Singular interviewing 101 CBD’s Justin Benton.  You can gather so much knowledge in this fun interchange of industry leaders. And where else can you learn about such things as the existence of playlist with 14 days of nonstop Grateful Dead music and that Bob Hoban never misses a basketball shot (unguarded, that is).

High praise was given to the NoCo Summer Solstice Virtual Hemp Conference, as virtual conferences and conferencing have become the new norm in our current world.  The Summer Solstice event set a new standard with its easy to access visuals to live and recorded speakers, an exposition of over 100 companies presenting videos, information, and live chats with visitors, a job forum, a networking room, and live music.

Justin updated 101 CBD’s progress since his last podcast on the Hoban Minute and his gratitude that the company continues to thrive as part of the hemp solution spotlighting the benefits of this plant. Customers have been thrilled that the stores were deemed essential and remained open to provide support such as the Chill products for the extra stress and lack of sleep during these stressful times. 

He reported the 101 CBD customers were also happy with the new location at 1121 S Seaward Avenue on the beach in Ventura. The mission of 101 CBD is to get the knowledge of our unique products either in hand or virtually to 1 billion people by 2025.  The overall goal is to lead the charge to get the resources together and collaborate to accomplish the Hemp Revolution.

This collaboration between existing and new businesses in the US,  the European Union, and other countries throughout the globe is needed to create and finance large scale processing plants, cooperatives, and the technology needed for the use of the wide range of products the hemp plant offers. Exploring tax credits and carbon credits is another collaborative avenue as hemp uses regenerative farming and sequesters carbon. 

Bob, Eric, and Justin invited anyone in the industry to reach out to them for help, and if they did not have the answer, they would find someone who does.  Justin offered a challenge to all in the industry…

“If your cup is full, then help someone who is new to the industry and help them get on the right path.”

Hemp Heroes also have fun while they share inspiring messages and the latest knowledge from the hemp movement. Enjoy their discussion of the sage wisdom of the Grateful Dead, listening to LP music albums, and a special message to Bob and his family from one of his sports heroes. They have the perfect ending for all the knowledge and inspiration they shared: 

“Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine”

101 CBD Goes the Extra Mile to Support our Frontline Workers

101 CBD Goes the Extra Mile to Support our Frontline Workers

Going beyond clapping, signs, and TV specials, the folks at 101 CBD wanted to do more to support our frontline workers in the current health crisis. These frontline workers include the wide range of those who staff our hospitals and nursing homes on whom we rely as we follow stay-at-home recommendations. All these frontline workers are exposed to increasingly stressful working conditions including longer than normal work hours, an underlying awareness of their potential to contract the virus, isolation from their family members to avoid potential spreading of the virus, filling in any area where they are needed, handling the heartbreak of being unable to save many of their patients, the worry over having enough supplies such as protective gear, testing materials, or advanced care equipment such as ventilators, and being aware of no clear cut end in sight when things will get better. The support our frontline workers is needed now more than ever.

To springboard a more personal effort to support these frontline health care workers, 101CBD/Hemp is now offering them a .5 ounce bottles of its customer favorite oil, Chill X.  Chill X is the most relevant choice during this stressful time. Chill X, containing the proprietary whole plant, cold extracted hemp oils, is often used by many customers to help maintain a sense of calm and manage everyday stress. 

Chill X contains a whole plant hemp extract base and contains a variety of plant compounds including phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids. This combination creates an Entourage effect, or the synergist benefits of all the plant compounds working together. With the added benefits of cold extraction resulting in a high percentage of the raw phytocannabinoid forms, Chill X is a product closer to how Mother Nature created it. To the carrier oil of cold pressed hemp seed oil is added low temperature extracted liquid stevia, with a small infusion of passion flower.  Passion flower has a long historical use for its calming effects and is described by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe). Chill X is available with a choice of several organic flavors.  These flavors include citrus, blueberry, peppermint, vanilla, natural sweet, and unflavored.  

We encourage any healthcare workers to stop by for their free bottle of Chill X at our three locations in Ventura and Ojai, California and Westminster, Colorado. Our educated staff will be happy to answer any questions or arrange a special time for pick-up if work hours conflict with the store hours.  We at 101 CBD are part of a family owned company created to help a family member, and our passion and purpose is truly helping others through providing the best products we can, providing the most current information and research, and offer a range of services to assist those most in need.  In addition to the bottles for seven dollars, discounts on larger bottles are also available. Please help spread the word about 101 CBD’s effort to support our frontline workers.
