Women Are Taking The Lead Across Vermont’s Budding Cannabis Industry | VPR News

“We work with 15 cafes across Vermont, where they offer our product in CBD-infused lattes and smoothies,” said Reynolds. “And then we work with … 20 total other women-owned businesses where we either directly add our product into their products to make a CBD line or we use their services to help run our business.”

Reynolds says the women business leaders she works with – from body care business owners to chocolatiers – have been her mentors. And now she’s doing the same for Vermont women looking to get into the cannabis industry.

The Dish: What The Hemp? | City Market Co-op | Seven Days

Brought to you by Seven Days, City Market, and the Intervale Center with special thanks to ArtsRiot. Industrial hemp is planted on over 1,200 acres of Vermont’s working lands. While there has been much discussion of the oil extracted from the plant (CBD), it’s worth noting the many uses of this versatile crop. From animal feed to fuel, fabric to dietary supplements, industrial hemp provides opportunities for Vermont farmers to diversify their operations. With the increasing interest and popularity of CBD products, growers now have a new market for their crop. Here in Vermont we’ve seen a growth in CBD-infused products from coffee and juice to oils and supplements. We’ve even seen a number of restaurants experiment with cooking with CBD. Join us during Vermont Restaurant Week as we explore the hemp crop and hear from farmers, chefs, business owners, and agronomists about the ways in which the evolving understanding of hemp and CBD is impacting our food system.

Essential Oils? | Williston Observer

Time and research. That is what is needed for more definitive answers about cannabidiol’s medicinal value. But there is no question that this particular non-psychoactive chemical compound of the hemp plant — CBD as it is known — is the foundation of a blossoming business in Vermont, one that tugs on a variety of social threads, from agriculture, to health care, to pot policy.

Reynolds has been immersed in CBD advocacy and entrepreneurship since the launch of her company last May. Elmore Mountain Therapeutics started as a personal search for postpartum depression treatment that led to distribution of CBD products to friends and family and now has become one of the primary CBD brands in Vermont.

Nearing the company’s one-year anniversary, Elmore Mountain is transitioning to Vermont grown hemp after sourcing from Colorado in its initial year.

“Reynolds left her professional career as Dental Hygienist to pursue EMT CBD full time. “My almost 15-year commitment to preventative medicine has given me the essential tools to educate the public as well as healthcare professionals. I completed the professional certificate in Cannabis Science and Medicine at the University of Vermont in the Fall of last year.” With her education, it is no wonder she already is having an abundance of success with EMT.”

Good Chemistry? Demand Soars For CBD-Coffee Blends | Burlington Free Press

“Enthusiasts have voted with their wallets,” said Dan Smith of Cosmic Grind on Church Street: “CBD sells itself.” Stirred, foamed, dolloped or steeped, CDB transforms the buzz of caffeine into something a tad more mellow, Smith said… Nate House, manager at Maglianero on Maple Street, said consumer demand and a healthy profit margin on ingredients inspired the café to experiment with cannabidiol concoctions. A CBD-enhanced Japanese matcha tea latte took the honors.
