San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2012

The Mile High City will play host to the National Marijuana Business Conference 2012 next week. John Malanca, owner of the medical marijuana resource website, says “Colorado’s medical marijuana community is a model for the national cannabis industry and movement as well as the perfect location to host the industry’s premier conference.”

National Marijuana Business Conference 2012 will feature over 40 speakers on burning topics ranging from the latest innovations and consumer trends to the likely impact of the national elections and how the medical marijuana community can affect changes in policy and legislation.

More than 200 cannabis business professionals from 18 states are expected to participate in the conference, including Tripp Keber, CEO of Red Dice Holdings, president of Medical Marijuana Inc.’s manufacturing division, and managing director of Dixie Elixirs & Edibles, which makes THC-infused medications, and Dixie X, which produces over the counter hemp oil wellness products.

Keber will lead a session titled “Infused Product Manufacturers: How to Flourish in 2013” on Thursday November 8, at 3:30 pm. He will then share his thoughts on the hottest developments in medical marijuana products and industry technology as part of an expert forum panel on Friday, November 9, at 1:30 pm.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from Tripp Keber and other medical marijuana industry thought leaders from around the nation,” said Malanca. “Medical patients—especially those suffering from chronic pain—need all-natural alternatives to dangerous pharmaceuticals like opiates, which are highly addictive and increasingly fatal with rising incidents of overdose. These are the people who are making things happen.”

Keber is a long-time cannabis activist and industry supporter. He is a founding member of the National Cannabis Industry Association and currently sits on the Colorado Medical Marijuana Industry Group Advisory Board.

“The marijuana business community is full of responsible leaders and caregivers who want to make real change in the world,” said Keber. “I am proud to be a member of this noble group and grateful for the opportunity to speak at the conference.”

Adjacent to the conference, the National Cannabis Industry Association will host its 2nd Anniversary Gala on Thursday, November 8, 2012 from 6 to 10 pm, beginning with a happy hour from 6 to 7 pm. Stand-alone advance tickets are available from NCIA at, and limited tickets will be available at the door.

Bluegrass Natural Remedies is Proud to Announce Exciting New Partnership with the Dixie Botanicals Brand

posted in: Hemp Legislation 0

Grand Rapids (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Bluegrass Natural Remedies, a subsidiary of Grand Rapids Compounding & Recycling has forged a relationship with Dixie Botanicals, a company that offers innovative hemp oil products to health conscious consumers. Bluegrass Natural Remedies has negotiated a distribution contract for Dixie Botanicals health and wellness lines of products. The company will sell these non-psychotropic hemp oil based products to retail stores throughout Michigan and Kentucky.

“Dixie Botanicals brings the power of hemp to health-conscious consumers through their line of innovative products,” said Joe Brown, a cannabis thought leader and owner of Grand Rapids Compounding and Recycling. “Dixie Botanicals offers legal products with naturally occurring Cannabidiol (CBD) derived from hemp. These products provide overwhelming evidence of significant health and wellness benefits.”

There is a growing population across the United States who rely heavily on botanical herbs and supplements to provide them with support for their overall wellness. These individuals turn to hemp oil based supplements and remedies because the side effects associated with prescription pain killers or opiates are too much for them to handle and can cause further complications. “Dixie Botanicals will be a great support to the marijuana community, health and wellness aficionados and naturopathic and homeopathic practitioners in their production of botanical supplements,” noted Joe Brown.

Dixie Botanicals manufactures its over-the-counter wellness products using naturally-occurring Cannabidiol (CBD) from industrial hemp. The hemp oil is derived from the stalk of a specific cultivar of the plant. Consumer benefits from Dixie Botanicals include: promoting overall wellness, easing anxiety due to stress and supporting muscle relief.

Bluegrass Natural Remedies is pleased to offer hemp oil wellness products in the state of Kentucky and intends to promote the restoration of Louisville, Kentucky as the hemp capital of the country. After Kentucky Senate Bill 50, a recent piece of hemp legislation endorsed by Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell was passed, industrial hemp is now legal at the state level.

With aspirations of fifty vendors in Michigan and fifty vendors in Kentucky, Bluegrass Natural Remedies is pushing for medicine that has historically rich roots. “After all, it’s what the ancients trusted,” said Brown. Bluegrass Natural Remedies will also offer a variety of natural holistic herbal remedies.
