This technology allows the isolate to penetrate through one additional layer of fabric, meaning that you don’t have to forgo sheets to enjoy your CBD-infused mattress. CBD is infused into the [...]

Companies either want a spectrum product that emphasises the inherent “cannabis” taste or masks it. Or they want an isolate product that recreates that taste – or masks it. “What we found is there are two camps,” explained Christina Castlejohn, senior [...]
