National CBD Day

Topically Applied Farm-to-Skin CBD Featuring the Brand’s Award-Winning Products CBD Essentials was founded by CBD industry expert and advocate Aryn Sieber, who consults with physicians and patients nationwide on the responsible use and medicinal benefits of cannabis. Sieber became a sought-after professional leader in the industry after using cannabis during his own battle with Stage IV cancer. CBD Essentials topically applied products are lab-formulated, third-party tested, and batch numbered to ensure quality and consistency. All CBD Essentials products feature Sieber’s award-winning flower and meet the federal requirements of the 2018 Farm Bill, which mandates that all CBD-infused products are derived from dried Cannabis Sativa L. plant material that contain less than 0.3 percent THC to be legal in the United States.

Real-world testing has shown CBD to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and to act as an antibacterial, antitumoral and antimicrobial. Studies also have shown that CBD can balance oil production in the skin. Furthermore, because the human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is critically responsible for the life cycle of basal skin cells, some treatments encourage the ECS with topically applied CBD in an effort to help regulate the production of healthy skin. (It is important to note that therapeutic statements for CBD products are not yet evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.) CBD is non-psychoactive. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that act on cannabinoid receptors in cells in the human body that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands or bonding molecules for these receptor proteins include endocannabinoids which are naturally produced in the body.

Terpenes refer to a class of compounds found in nearly every plant species including cannabis. They have been shown to influence many biological activities—including reduction of inflammation, reduced sensitivity to pain, and reduced anxiety. Terpenes and cannabinoids share a common biochemical precursor, giving them the ability to bind with different biological substances in the body, including receptors and enzymes.

This product features organic coconut oil infused with premium CBD to reduce discomfort associated with muscle and joint inflammation. This non-greasy topically applied product helps to rejuvenate tired muscles and aching joints, enhancing recovery and relieving pain. It was formulated to be used for therapeutic and oncology massages, and has been shown help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis and psoriasis in hundreds of real-world test cases.

Panasonic Introduces Shoe Deodorizer

Panasonic Corporation will begin selling a shoe deodorizer, the MS-DS100, equipped with “nanoe X” that generates 10 times(*2) more hydroxyl (OH) radicals than “nanoe” to remove unpleasant shoe odors in a simple way, on September 20, 2018 (in Japan only).

One of the common causes of unpleasant shoe odors is isovaleric acid, an odorous substance produced by foot sweat and bacteria. According to a survey(*3) Panasonic conducted with sneaker wearers, about 62% of those surveyed take some measures to remove shoe odors, but about half of them are not satisfied with the deodorizing methods they use.

The MS-DS100 utilizes Panasonic’s original ion particles, “nanoe X,” to dissolve and eliminate unpleasant shoe odors(*1). When the product is set in shoes and the switch turned on, “nanoe X” is generated and spreads from six outlets to every corner of the shoes to remove odors(*1) in the entire interior of the shoes from the heel to the toe.

There are two operation modes to choose from. The normal mode provides approximately five hours of operation, while the long mode runs for about seven hours to remove stubborn odors. Both modes cost less than 1 yen(*4) per use, so it is very economical. The MS-DS100 also operates on a mobile battery(*5) so it can be used at a place where there is no AC power outlet. The product comes with a stylish storage case. The case accommodates the cap sections that are inserted into shoes for use, so the product can be stored neatly in the entrance area or shoe cupboard.

With the MS-DS100 shoe deodorizer, Panasonic proposes an easy way to remove shoe odors and expects to create new market demand.

Product features

Uses “nanoe X” to dissolve and eliminate shoe odors(*1)

The MS-DS100 utilizes Panasonic’s original nano-sized ions, “nanoe X.” Measuring about 5 to 20 nm each, the “nanoe X” particles penetrate the textile and dissolve and eliminate unpleasant shoe odors(*1).The six outlets discharge and spread “nanoe X” to every corner of the shoes to provide a thorough deodorizing effect.

Economical operation with electricity cost of less than 1 yen(*4) per use. Also operates on a mobile battery(*5).

The MS-DS100 also operates on a mobile battery(*5) so it can be used at a place where there is no AC power outlet, such as in the entrance area or shoe cupboard.

Storage case provided with the product features a stylish design to look attractive when placed in an entrance area.

The storage case provided with the product accommodates the cap sections that are inserted into shoes for use, so the product can be stored neatly. The caps with antibacterial treatment(*6) can be removed and washed with water, so they can be used hygienically.
