AALIGN TO REDEFINE: Demystifying CBD
So it’s weed?...But it doesn’t get you high?....Then what does it do? CBD seems to be the new, hot wellness wonder. And despite the fact that you can find CBD tinctures, lattes, facials, (and even dog treats!), there’s still some haze around what CBD actually is and what CBD does. Scientific research and anecdotal evidence tout a whole host of CBD’s therapeutic effects from the ability alleviate anxiety to decreasing inflammation to anti-cancer and neuroprotective properties. At this offering of the AALIGN to Redefine Panel Series, we’re bringing together experts in the field to share their professional experience and personal journeys with CBD.

Cimone Kind Berman has been a cannabis advocate for years, and started her own CBD company, Cook Proper, a little more than a year ago. While there is no brick and mortar, Cimone makes her products accessible to all with pick-up and delivery options, as well as shipping. After watching her father have a positive reaction to out of state CBD:THC products, she decided to reach out to some friends, and started to create these products on her own. It was only a matter of time, once PA became part of the MMJ program, which allowed Cimone to incorporate more options for patients. In addition to the CBD products she creates, Cimone also offers services teaching card holders how to use their medicine, how to properly dose it, and how to cook with it as well, hence the company name, Cook Proper.
