WELLINGTON, Colo., May 28, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Wellington-based liposomal hemp manufacturer, Puffin Hemp, has launched Puffin MVP, a military veteran program that provides free and reduced-cost CBD to local veterans.
“Studies by Dr. Philip Blair, MD (Colonel, U.S. Army Retired) have shown cannabinoids are effective at lessening the emotional impact of traumatic events and can help patients experience less anxiety while improving sleep,” said Dr. Emek Blair, Chief Scientist and Founder of Puffin Hemp. “With many of our veterans returning home with stress symptoms, such as anxiety and more, we felt compelled to create a program that would make alternative treatments recommended by their physicians, such as CBD, more affordable or free to the men and women who have served our country.”
To kick off the program, Puffin Hemp is hosting two events where veterans can sign up for the program and receive their first three-month supply of CBD at no cost. The first event will be held on June 1 at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The second event will be held on June 8 at Veteran Brothers Brewing in Johnstown from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.
Both events will be open to the public and will feature food and drink, networking, CBD education, a veteran resource fair and a special appearance by Dr. Philip Blair, MD (Colonel, U.S. Army Retired). Attendees are asked to RSVP online at www.puffinhemp.com/RSVP.
In order to take home the three-month supply of CBD, veterans must have proof of age and military service. Veterans who cannot attend one of the events may enroll in the program online at www.puffinhealth.com/military-signup.
All veterans will receive the first three-month supply of CBD at no cost while supplies last. Following the initial three-month supply, veterans may opt to renew their supply for a reduced cost. All proceeds from the sale of Puffin MVP CBD products will benefit local veteran organizations, such as Vets4Life. Non-veterans can donate to one of the veterans organizations that will be at the events to receive discounted Liposomal Hemp/CBD products.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the cannabinoids that occur naturally in cannabis plants. Current research studies are testing how CBD may be useful in helping with pain, epilepsy, MS, Parkinson’s, inflammation, nausea, anxiety and more. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means that it will not get the user high.
