California-based patient education organization ProjectCBD conducted an outreach event at a private residence in Seattle,WA on Thursday night. ProjectCBD spokesperson Sarah Russo travelled from Sonoma County to meet and engage local CBD activists, entrepreneurs and cannabis growers with the goal of better solidifying CBD advocacy on the west coast.

The invitation-only event was attended by about 30 professionals representing at least 20 Seattle companies interested sharing best practices in sourcing, grading and processing a steady and reliable stream of CBD-focused medicine for the ill.  Attendees discussed CBD from cannabis, CBD from hemp, the state of the law, overseas sources, and quality standards. Sarah Russo said, “The main goal of Project CBD is to increase the awareness of and research into whole plant CBD medicine and its applications,” which was met with applause from this supportive audience.

The group struggled with the fact that hemp-derived CBD was so available right now while whole-plant cannabis-derived CBD is still so difficult to get, even though it is a much better medicine. Also, the inconsistent laws at the state and federal levels were described as slowing the process of getting CBD medicine into the hands of patients.  In attendance were representatives from LeBlanc CNEMary’s NutritionalsCannabis Basics,  VIMEAAnalytical 360Mary’s MedicinalsThe Cannabis AllianceThe Association of Safe Access PointsNORML Women of WACircannaWAM Oil, the Northwest Farmer’s Union and many others.  ProjectCBD gathered those in attendance towards co-supporting each other in CBD medicine efforts and plan further gatherings.
