CCN podcast Ep 19 Tim Gunther Compliance Expert
Tim Gunther is our guest this week on the Carolina Cannabis News podcast, which is coming at you a little early since there is so much interest in this topic. His company, iLoveCompliance.biz, works with clients in 18 states. And, he says, about a year ago he noticed an industry shift toward hemp. We sent him a draft of the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ CBD-ban letter for review before our interview. But he’s had his eye on the North Carolina hemp industry since long before we met. We discuss the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s CBD memo, best practices for hemp and CBD companies -- including on social media, and what he'd tell you if he were his North Carolina client. He also offers some sound advice for CBD consumers. Show notes available CarolinaCannabisNews.com.

CCN podcast Ep 17: Armany Richardson-Peterson of The Hemp Source
This week on the Carolina Cannabis News podcast our guest is Armany Richardson-Peterson, co-owner of The Hemp Source. We talk about the eight stores that are now part of the company's franchise, including one that opened this in weekend in Greensboro, N.C. We also discuss what it means for a hemp company to be vertically integrated and what it's like to work in such a fast-paced industry while raising a young family. Important note: We discuss edible, CBD-infused foods during this podcast, and even talk about such products being available at Mitty's CBD Cafe, our podcast sponsor's store. Because state regulators are sending letters next week instructing processors to avoid CBD-infused food, drink and even dog food (due to FDA approval of a CBD isolate-based drug, not because there's all of a sudden something wrong with CBD) we will no longer advertise for edible products on the podcast or our website until there is some regulatory clarity. And new news: While the podcast will still be uploaded on Sunday nights, look for the show notes on CarolinaCannabisNews.com on Monday mornings.

CCN Ep 14 Clarenda Stanley-Anderson of Green Heffa Farms
Clarenda Stanley-Anderson of Green Heffa Farms is our guest on this week's Carolina Cannabis News podcast, though you might know her best as Farmer Cee. In addition to being the first licensed Black female hemp farmer in North Carolina and a world traveler, thanks to her work for the Nature Conservancy, Stanley-Anderson is also the spokesperson for the 10th anniversary of Hemp History Week. In this episode, we get real about what it's like to be a Black hemp farmer in a time when fewer than 2 percent of all farmers in the United States are African American. We also discuss hemp as a sustainable crop and bonus for the global environment, the total destruction of Stanley-Anderson's first hemp crop by Hurricane Florence and what the future holds for Green Heffa Farms. P.S. Our apologies for skipping a week on the podcast; we experienced a technical glitch. However, the delay made this show all the more timely which is something we acknowledge in a brief editorial added at the top of the episode.
