CBD Lion: Top Shelf & Transparent CBD Products Made With Pride

In an era where CBD products are growing in popularity, CBD Lion has risen to the top of many lists. And it’s easy to see why. CBD Lion was founded by Erik Lundgren, Andrew Stepniak and Katie Nauert. Lundgren and Stepniak came from a background in medical and recreational cannabis, which inspired them to create a high-quality product that could substitute CBD for nicotine in vaporizers. Instead of rushing to market with their formula, Lundgren and Stepniak took their time, and spent months developing a product that is as tasty as it is effective. Now, less than two years after its founding, the company is easy to spot at trade shows (hint: it is the booth with the extra-long ‘dab’ lines to sample their 10 different flavors of CBD shatter). CBD Lion products have amassed multiple awards, including “Best Edible” at CBD Expo West, and “Best Vape” at CBD Expo Midwest. In 2018, MSNBC ranked them as one of the “Top Five CBD Companies” and Buzzfeed says they are one of 2019’s “top booming CBD brands to watch out for.” The brand is gaining recognition for its terpene-infused CBD products, such as tinctures and vapes. The expanding inventory currently features disposable vape pens, cartridges, shatters, lotions, gummies, and tinctures. The company also offers its own line of tinctures for pets.

Pride in Their Products

All of CBD Lion’s products contain CBD that is derived from hemp grown organically in the U.S. and no THC. Plus, each of the company’s products are independently lab tested by a third party, with the results posted online for customers to access. The company has created a QR code standard, which means each product comes with a code that can be scanned for direct product test results. Next, Lundgren and Stepniak had to find a way to flavor their oils. They were not satisfied with generic vape flavoring methods, so they chose to flavor the product using specific terpene profiles. The ensuing recipe boosts exceptional flavor while also introducing the entourage effect to the CBD to better aide in the desired effect. As a result, they create a vape experience previously unseen in the cannabis space. They have since built upon their specially crafted vape products with a shatter concentrate consisting of just CBD and terpenes. The shatter is currently available in 10 flavors, including Blueberry, Cherry Pie, Ghost Train Haze, Jack Herer, Watermelon OG and more. With their inventory of high-quality products, CBD Lion needed a way to effectively showcase their products. While Lundgren and Stepniak were working on creating the products, Lundgren’s sister, Nauert, also a co-founder was simultaneously designing the logo and brand. Nauert quickly became known as the brand architect; she designs every single piece from the prideful logo to the educational pamphlets and all product packaging. It was equally important to the team to have great products with strong branding that would easily be recognized. Customer feedback is an important part of the company design as well. One look at the company’s reviews and it’s easy to see why CBD Lion has gained notoriety among new and veteran users. Not only are customers continually impressed with the efficiency of their products — a main reason nearly 90 percent of them have a “five-star” rating — CBD is accountable to their consumer base. CBD Lion recently announced their plans to take their company public by merging with Acquired Sales Corp. (OTC Pink: AQSP) and changing the name to CBD LION CORP.

The new ear-shaped edibles are complete with a missing chunk where Tyson removed a portion of Evander Holyfield’s cartilage in what became known as The Bite Fight.

Wiz Khalifa and his entertainment company Taylor Gang Ent. have collaborated with Stündenglass, the world’s first gravity-powered infuser, to introduce the iconic gold and black Taylor Gang x Stündenglass.

“I’m honored to have collaborated with long time friend Wiz Khalifa, who is as passionate about this product as I am. Our mutual admiration for Stündenglass made it a natural collaboration,” Stündenglass CEO Chris Folkerts said via a press release.

Taylor Gang x Stündenglass is an authentic collaboration developed after the multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning, Golden Globe-nominated Khalifa discovered Stündenglass and began enjoying it regularly as seen on his Instagram.

“I love my Stündenglass, and I’m pumped everyone gets to experience this with me now,” Khalifa.

The infuser features a patented 360-degree gravity system that elicits a powerful and immersive experience. It generates kinetic motion activation via cascading water, opposing airflow technology and the natural force of gravity.

The Taylor Gang gravity bing comes in an exclusive black and gold colorway and features two glass globes on a metal base made of aircraft-grade aluminum, surgical grade stainless steel, and high-quality Teflon seals.

Taylor Gang includes artists Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, and Berner among others — the former of which has his own line Stündenglass collab with his Cookies brand.

“We’re very excited to launch the official Taylor Gang x Stündenglass. We use glass in our everyday lives, so it only made sense to team up and create an exclusive Taylor Gang collaboration for the fans,” Taylor Gang said.

No Super Bowl for Brock Ollie

Published

Brock Ollie

With medicinal marijuana being legal in 37 states and recreational cannabis allowed in 18, we should be seeing commercials for companies, products, and services almost as frequently as commercials for sports betting, which is permitted in 30 states in some form.

However, mainstream cannabis advertising continues to be non-existent, as demonstrated in the recent news that NBC has rejected an ad by cannabis e-commerce and advertising platform Weedmaps from being shown during the Super Bowl LVI event his coming Sunday.

Weedmaps reportedly approached the network late last year about airing a Super Bowl commercial that would be “similar to a PSA,” according to reports. Execs volunteered to present some of their earlier educational-based programming, assuring NBC executives that it would not contain any direct-sell messages, which are still forbidden under federal law.

“The answer was a hard no — they wouldn’t even entertain the conversation,” Weedmaps Chief Operating Officer Juanjo Feijoo told Adweek. “We see ourselves as trying to be trailblazers in the industry and making new inroads where others haven’t gone before in cannabis advertising. So it was disappointing.”

The contentious ad personifies cannabis as Brock Ollie, a head of broccoli, the veggie emoji commonly used as a visual representation of cannabis in marketing. The 30-second ad takes viewers through a day in the life of Brock Ollie, whose superfood identity is in jeopardy as he is repeatedly misidentified as cannabis. The ad offers a lighthearted take on the industry’s issues, such as social media censorship and a lack of clear advertising standards, which limit cannabis-related commercials during nationally televised events like the Super Bowl.

“Despite three quarters of the country having legalized cannabis and the bipartisan enthusiasm we continue to see in support for change at the federal level, the industry continues to face roadblocks that inhibit competition in the legal market and stifle opportunities to educate,” Chris Beals, CEO of Weedmaps said. “There’s an irony in the fact that the biggest night for advertising will feature an array of consumer brands in regulated industries, from beverage alcohol to sports betting, yet legal cannabis retailers, brands and businesses have been boxed out.”

The game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams will be played Sunday in L.A.
