ETST looks to educate consumers on the numerous nutritional benefits of CBD and industrial hemp. ETST is working with industry nutritional and dietary supplement experts in order to spearhead consumer health and wellness education as well as product development for the CBD Hemp based rich oil.

ETST feels there is a lot of misconception in the marketplace right now in regards to the proper dosing and percentage of CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil needed to take as a nutritional and dietary supplement as well as for overall wellness. This also includes the amount needed to help with certain health disorders and conditions.

ETST plans on developing certain guidelines for the correct amount of dosing of High Grade CBD (Cannabidiol) Rich Hemp Oil as a nutritional and dietary supplement to be used for various disorders and conditions through upcoming clinical trials. One of the main differences between ETST and the prominent NASDAQ-traded GW Pharmaceuticals plc GW Pharma is that ETST is focused on certain High Grade CBD (Cannabidiol)Rich Hemp Oil that is considered to be "food based" and therefore legal in all 50 states and more than 40 countries. Cannabinoids (cannabidiol/CBD) are natural constituents of the hemp plant, and CBD is derived from hemp stalk and seed. Hemp oil is a well-known dietary supplement and the naturally occurring CBD in hemp is providing overwhelming evidence of significant health and wellness benefits. CBD possesses no psychoactive properties and therefore is a ready for market hemp based ingredient. According to scientific and clinical studies, CBD has the potential to help a range of conditions, including epilepsy, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pain, alcoholism, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, and various neurological disorders (Source: National Center for Biotechnology Information http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). CBD has demonstrated neurogenic and neuroprotective effects and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and abroad.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently considers hemp based Cannabinoids, including CBD, to be "food based" and therefore legal. These new non-psychoactive CBD-rich hemp oil products that ETST will look to market and distribute are legal and available to consumers in all fifty states and in more than forty countries. CBD (Cannabidiol), a naturally-occurring constituent of the industrial hemp plant, promotes and supports the nutritional health of aging bodies.
