The Captain has a new job.

Greeting fellow boaters,

My beloved Alize' sailboat remains in Mexican waters. She will most likely remain on the market in La Paz until the weather cools down. These are the dog days of summer in southern Baja. This means there are not many buyers walking around the docks.

In other news, I was recently approached by a CBD company that needs a Chief Science Officer. CBD Care Garden is the name of this company, they use hemp extract to produce various topical products (massage oil, face creams) that are enriched with the non-psychoactive component of cannabis. In other words, they completely remove THC and use a hemp extract that has a high percentage of CBD. This all gets blended in with other plants and carrier oils....and you have yourself a fancy botanical product!

I have a background in writing/teaching about medicinal plants and the health benefits of plant derived compounds. So, this is a perfect fit for me.

There is currently a lot of hype surrounding the health benefits of CBD. Some of this is garbage, while some of it is supported by scientific publications. To help others make sense of this world, I have recently put together this article about the science behind CBD. Please give it a read! I wrote this for a broad audience.
