CBD is flourishing in the wellness, beauty, and culinary worlds.

Everyone’s buzzing about CBD (a non-psychoactive compound derived from hemp)—particularly in the wellness, beauty, and culinary worlds where thought-leaders are elevating the ingredient from its roots in the dorm room or behind the bleachers to a transformative health-booster.  

Join some of the most innovative thinkers in the CBD movement—including a chef who makes the herbal extract his star ingredient for high-end dinners, and two brand founders inspired by the power of plant medicine to slather on or supplement with—for a high-minded (smoke-free!) conversation on the most lit topic in wellness.
