Hello and welcome to the first edition of CBDossier. Glad to have you here. Let’s begin with a brief introduction.
What is CBDossier? It’s a newsletter for people who are interested in CBD. The goal is to help you better understand this still relatively new topic, whether you’re a consumer, work in the industry, or are curious for other reasons. CBDossier will provide comprehensive information, share authentic experiences, and seek out hard-to-find answers that are important to you.
Why do we need CBDossier?
There’s been quite a bit talked and written about CBD in the last couple of years, about its suggested benefits
and possible harms
, and how it has created a booming new industry
. New regulations and extraction methods
have made CBD available for a much broader range of people, who might not have been interested in cannabis otherwise.
But even so, it’s surprisingly challenging to find genuine and cohesive information, and answers to questions that a growing number of CBD-curious people have. And it gets even more complicated in light of the regulation chaos in the U.S.
, and other parts of the world, and the lack of research
. This is why CBDossier set out to help navigate and further explore the ever-changing CBD landscape.
CBDossier is not advocating for any particular CBD products or brands, nor for using it in general. As a former business reporter turned product and engagement strategist
, I will always be a journalist at heart. That means that I’m deeply committed to the ethics of journalism and to seeking out information and answers that help you form your view on CBD. I will digest news, research, and regulation, talk to experts and provide context.
But CBDossier is also about sharing knowledge and personal experiences, with the goal to give back to the CBDossier community. That’s what you’ll find in the CBDiaries section further down. Ultimately, we all benefit from learning about other perspectives, and collectively bridging the knowledge gaps.
As CBDossier is my passion project, I might not have answers to your questions or a new edition right away. But I promise to take it all in and make use of it for this newsletter.
Thank you for following along.
