Guide To CBD Delivery Methods

cbd infused wine

CBD can be consumed in a number of different ways. It may be inhaled, smeared on the skin, added to food, swallowed as tinctures, and even swished around with the mouth. Choosing the CBD delivery method that works best for you is important if you want to fully take advantage of its medical benefits. Furthermore, the delivery method you choose will also influence the time it takes to work as well as its overall effect on your body.

Following are some of the most common CBD delivery methods:

Sublingual (Tinctures)
This CBD delivery method uses a dropper or oral mist to apply the CBD oil directly under the tongue. That’s why it is known as the sublingual method. This is a ‘bioavailable’ method of consuming CBD as it is very effective and fast-acting. CBD tinctures come in a wide range of dosages and flavors and they are simple to use, whether you apply them directly under your tongue or use them in beverages.

Oral (Edibles, Capsules, and Beverages)
There are several oral delivery methods of CBD. Some of the most popular ones include CBD infused wine, edibles, and capsules. When you ingest CBD this way, it is absorbed into your bloodstream via the stomach lining, which may take about 45 minutes to an hour.

Oral CBD delivery methods are an ideal option for individuals who want an easy way to consume CBD. Oral methods of CBD delivery are not just convenient but they are also fun, e.g. a delicious CBD infused wine that is available in variety of flavors. Capsules are also a common method of taking CBD. They are available in variety of different dosages, as well as both THC-free and Full Spectrum options.

Nasal Spray
CBD delivery via natural nasal spray is relatively new but it has gained a lot of popularity in a short amount of time because of its unique benefits. Not only is the CBD absorbed faster via natural nasal spray, but there are also additional benefits of this method, e.g. you can use it as nasal decongestant as well as keep nasal mucosa moisturized.

Inhalation (Vape Cartridges)
With this CBD delivery method, cannabinoids enter the bloodstream almost instantly as they are absorbed into the lungs. It is one of the most common methods of taking CBD but it is not suitable for everyone.

Topicals (Skincare)
Topicals are CBD-infused roll-ons, creams, and lotions that are externally applied to deliver cannabinoids through the skin. The effects can last up to five hours depending on the dosage. CBD has natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities that protect the skin. When choosing CBD topicals, it is recommended that you make sure that they contain no animal-based ingredients, petroleum-based products, or synthetic fragrances.

As you can see, there are many methods of taking CBD and each has its own benefits. Keep in mind that there is no ‘best’ way to take CBD. The best delivery method for you depends on your health considerations and lifestyle. So, choose the one that suits your preferences.

Napa winery salesman files lawsuit for age discrimination

Napa winery
Napa winery

Age discrimination lawsuits affect all industries, but a new one from Napa, California concerns the wine business. A former sales rep is suing the company he used to work for because of being terminated on the grounds that he was too old. It’s not surprising that he hired a wrongful termination lawyer for his lawsuit. In the world of which the wine cellar is prized, an age discrimination suit does seem on the surface to be a curious event.

The details of the suit stem from a conversation that Joseph White, who worked as a regional sales manager for Fior di Sole in Kansas, the parent company of Ca’ Momi Winery, was asked in 2015 his age. After some initial hesitation, he responded that he was 67 years old. At that point, White alleges that his manager stated he was “too old” to work in the industry.

Napa winery

Also mentioned in the lawsuit, White stated that he and a co-worker refused to attend a mandatory seminar of which the title was “Sacred Commerce” which was about the spiritual community in the workplace. White was not comfortable with the religious overtones of the seminar and he stated that afterwards both he and the co-worker were criticized for not attending.

Napa winery

White was fired shortly afterward for what the company said was “restructuring”, but that was later changed to his poor performance in terms of sales. For di Sole has through its attorney denied any wrongdoing and states that they operate a fair workplace. White subsequently sued the company based on age discrimination. It should be noted that the company did not cite missing a mandatory seminar as part of the reason for the firing.

The merits of the lawsuit will be heard by a jury, although it should be noted that more than 90% of all lawsuits are settled before they reach a decision. This strongly indicates that the resolution may be a financial one, but not the type that settles what really happened. It will also take several months before the trial begins which means that it could be settled in the meantime.

Napa winery

The ramifications of the lawsuit will depend on the evidence presented, the skill of the wrongful termination lawyer that White has hired, and the belief that he might have been fired based on his age. The fact that his age did come up in conversation, at least according to White, is a mark in his favor. In addition, the company will have to show that sales under White dipped or did not meet reasonable expectations as compared to his predecessors.

All things considered, an industry that is focused on filling the wine cellar of their customers should be embroiled in an age discrimination lawsuit brings some interesting questions to bear. One of the most pertinent is whether it is perceived by wine companies that they must cater to a younger audience. Although firing an individual based on age has no place in any industry, the motivations as to why it may happen might bring some insight into the wine business as a whole.

Red wine nasal sprays could prevent lung cancer in smokers

Red wine
nasal spray

With the increasing amount of pollution and impurities increasing around us, there is always a risk of getting attacked with chronic diseases. Degradation of the air quality around us gets us infected with many types of lung and heart diseases. On top of this, there are smokers who have the risk of getting affected by cancer cells due to excessive smoking of tobacco. Tobacco affects the lungs of a person badly and can be a reason to accelerate the growth of cancer cells if one is already attacked with them. Survival with cancer is extremely difficult as it spreads through the cells rapidly and leaves the sufferer in pain and in most cases turn fatal. A group of Swiss scientists seems to have come up with a solution for the smokers with a special type of nasal medicinal spray.

Their research has shown that a certain type of chemical that is found in red wine can serve as a pre care medicine for smokers who have the risk of getting affected by cancer. The chemical which goes by the name of resveratrol is found in red grapes and has shown enormous results when it was tested in the laboratory by the scientists. The experiments were performed on mice which were exposed to the cancer causing compounds from cigarette smoke and then they were made to sniff resveratrol. The results showed that the signs of tumors in the mice reduced by almost 50%. This experiment has been a great success and the chemical has been planned to get medicated and sold as inhalers and even in e-cigarettes.

red wine

The quantity of resveratrol in red wine is bare minimum and consumption of red wine in order to prevent cancer is not at all advisable. Instead, if the chemical is given a medical form and specially implemented in inhalers and e cigarettes, it will be a great help for smokers who are also affected with asthma. E-cigarettes are already being promoted to reduce the effect of tobacco on the lungs and if the device is already loaded with resveratrol, it will obviously be safer for the smokers. More than 35,000 people are attacked with lung cancer every year which turn out taking their lives. The implementation of the chemical in nasal sprays will be an intelligent step towards the prevention of cancer. Resveratrol is already used in many food supplements, so its safety does not need to be proved in the commercial market again. It is also highly soluble in propylene glycol, which is the main constituent chemical in e-cigarettes, making it more convenient to manufacture. This research is an extremely important revolution in the medical world and is predicted to bring successful results with proper implementation. A chemical found so commonly in red grapes is an easily available compound to be used in drugs.

How to Remove Red Wine from a Rug

Red wine spills are a source of frustration among rug owners regardless of whether they have luxurious rugs or cheap rugs. This is because they leave a bright red spot which can be very difficult to remove, particularly with light-colored rugs. So how to effectively remove red wine from a rug? Following are some simple steps that will help you in this regard:

  • Remove the Excess Spillage

Removing the excess spillage is the first thing you should do when cleaning red wine spills. Blotting helps in this regard as it can remove the excess wine to prevent it from getting deeper into the rug fibers. Blot the stained area with a clean cloth, don’t rub it in any way! You will notice that the cloth will absorb the liquid. Repeat this step until the wine stops transferring onto the cloth.

  • Clean it Using Baking Soda

The next step is to clean the area of the rug using baking soda. Baking soda is an all-round cleaning product for messes in every home. It works well for removing wine stains from rugs and upholstery. Create a cleaning paste by mixing one-part water with three-parts of baking soda. Apply this paste onto the stained area of the rug and then let it dry. After that, use a vacuum cleaner to remove it. After this step, the stain will be gone or at least it will lessen. It is recommended that you repeat this step until the entire stain is removed.

  • Rinse the Area with Water

Now rinse the rug to dilute the wine before it has a chance to set in. This last step of the DIY wine stain removal is very important because it helps prevent residue from being left behind, which can build up in the rug fibers. Rinse the area of the rug that is stained with clean water and then dry it using a clean towel or rag.

Sometimes, this step does not take the stain out completely. If that is the case, then it is recommended that you use a rug cleaner. There are wide variety of cleaners available on the market and they are effective on both expensive and cheap rugs.

Hire Professional Help if the Stain is Not Removed

Remove Red Wine Stain

Of course, even with all your efforts there is always a chance that the stain of the red wine will not be removed. In this case, you will need to hire professional help. Professional rug cleaners offer their services for both luxurious and cheap rugs. Rugs sometimes are dry clean only however, it is still recommended that you remove as much of the red wine stain as possible while it is still wet as doing this will make it easier for the professionals to remove the remnants.

The key to effectively and successfully removing red wine stain from a rug is time. Don’t let the stain sit for days before you decide to remove it or calling in the professionals because by then it might be too late and the stain is now a permanent fixture.

Can you trust wine insiders reviews?

Thanks to the fierce competition that is prevalent in every field, review wars have become a common thing and all the players are forced to fight these wars. Though reviews can be good for consumers, there is a darker side to them. Let us now find out if wine insiders reviews can be trusted.

It appears that there are as many “experts” who proclaim to have skills of reviewing the wine reviews as there are wines. Of course, there are review-reviewers as well who review the wine reviews written by reviewers. These review-reviewers strongly feel that wine insiders reviews cannot be trusted. According to them, it is better you trust the sagacity of wine users rather than falling a prey to the wisdom of the so-called experts who have written reviews of wines. Since the battalion of wine users may consist of diverse groups of people, their opinions are more valuable than wine insiders reviews.

Why is it this opinion of the review-reviewers may be right?

This opinion of the review-reviewers seems to be right because the reviews written by the so-called experts appears to belong to the “propaganda” category. This means that they are coming out with these reviews for promoting the wines offered by the manufacturers. Let us not worry about what transpired between the manufacturers and these reviewers. Our aim is to find out if these wine insiders reviews can be trusted or they are worthy of being discarded.

It is true that some of these reviewers provide us with great insights about the wines they are reviewing but others can pull us down and put us in a rabbit-hole. So, you, as a consumer, should be able to find out if the reviews you choose to go through are supportive or if they are potential minefields.

What are the problems that can be created by such wine insiders reviews?

1. The main problem with these reviews is that they can color your judgment which means they are capable of interfering with or influencing your views or decisions. 

2. Secondly, individual reviews are subjective. On the other hand, there is more objectivity in the opinions expressed by diverse groups of people. That is the reason you will be able to make better choices and decisions if you go through the informed discussions and opinions of such groups. Not only that, these groups share more information than the reviewers. In short, your decision-making process becomes more effective by trusting the opinions of diverse groups of wine users instead of trusting individual wine insiders reviews.

Now, the question is whether getting reviews written by the so-called experts is good marketing or not. The intention of wine manufacturers is to promote the wines they make and see that their products are sold. They have a commercial motive and hence, they are resorting to all these ways. But the reviewers or the so-called critics are supposed to be unbiased and they should adopt the doctrine of objectivity while reviewing wines. Whether they adopt such an approach or not is debatable. To put it bluntly, they seem to have questionable motives while writing positive reviews for wines that may not be worthy of such praises.

The age-old belief that “quality sells” is witnessing a slow death.

Earlier, business were strongly believing that the quality of the products they are offering would itself help them achieve the sales they were expecting to get. But now, things are very much different. It is now showbiz all the way. Manufacturers of products do not hesitate to spend enormous amounts for advertising what they are offering. In fact, they are ready to pay millions of dollars for roping in celebrities to appear on their ads or in their promotional videos. This being the case, it  is not surprising to note that wine manufacturers, who have huge stakes in their business, are resorting to not-so-straight ways for getting positive reviews written by the so-called experts.

So, can you trust wine insiders reviews or not?

Now the question is: Are the reviews by wine insiders trust-worthy? Remember that just because you have doubts about the truthfulness of the reviews written by these critics, you should not stop going through them. While you are advised to gather all the relevant details from these reviews, you should not allow the opinions of these reviewers to breach your ways of making decisions. 

But the very fact that there are a number of reviews for a single product or wine makes things more complex. You are likely to be bewildered by the various ratings the wines you are considering are getting. This may certainly create a choking effect on your decision making process. You may not also be able to bear the insane pressure that is caused by these ratings and reviews. 

Remember that only if you learn to out-think these reviewers, you will be able to make the right choice from the wide variety of wines available. This means that you should ensure not to forgo your strength of judging things in the right manner. Of course, the transition may be difficult initially. But if you apply your mind by adopting a focused approach, you can learn how to sift the wine insiders reviews, extract the most salient details, and derive the best benefits out of them.

Conclusion.

The best way is to go through the reviews written by the review-reviewers so you can identify the right and dependable wine insiders reviews. You must make it a point to take the guidance of these reliable reviews only. In a nutshell, not all wine insiders reviews can be trusted. Only a few can provide you with the right type of guidance you wish to have.

Top California Wine Distributors

There is little question that California is well known for the wine that is produced within the state. So popular is wine from California and particularly the Napa Valley area that distributors are hard-pressed to keep up with the demand. For those who sell wine, finding the best California wine distributor is essential in keeping well-supplied with the wine your customers love.

A typical California wine distributor works closely with wineries to ensure that their product reaches the customers. While many wineries sell directly to consumers, it can be difficult for wineries to reach markets, especially those outside of their location. This is because it takes a staff of dedicated people to reach out, demonstrate, and sell the product to retailers who understand their customer base.

What follows is a list of distributors that specialize in wines produced from California. Each has its unique history and offers a wide selection of wines that are all produced in the state. Keep in mind that it took many years for these wine distributors to reach their current status.

Henry Wine Group

Founded in 1985, the Henry Wine Group was originally created to address the growing need of suppliers of fine wine not getting adequate representation by the large, mostly liquor-oriented distributors. The company began as Vintage House Distributors in the southern California area and worked to establish relations with a select group of fine wine companies that has expanded over the years. Today, the Henry Wine Group is one of the largest brokers, importers, and distributors of fine wine in the US. Their reputation has been earned over the years through their dedication, emphasis on working with high-quality fine wine companies, and filling an important need in the wine market.

Mendocino Wine Company

Founded in 2004, the Mendocino Wine Company has grown over the years to become one of the most successful wine distributors in the US. Based in Ukiah, California, the company has managed to earn a strong reputation for working with customers and providing a wide assortment of wines from California and around the world. For many customers, this company has managed to be one of the most popular thanks to its emphasis on building strong relationships.

Regal Wine Company

Since 1993, the Regal Wine Company has been the California wine distributor which has earned a solid reputation for its emphasis on creating strong, solid relationships with its customers. The company began with just four wineries and ten sales representatives working to build up interest in wine from California. It was not long before the company stated to enjoy considerable success when in 1996, the inclusion of the Jackson Family Wineries led to the creation of the Royal Chain Division within the company.

Soon, both domestic and imported wine partners came onboard and by the turn of the 21st century, the first group of Regal managers were earning their Master Sommelier certifications. With over 9,000 accounts and nearly 200 employees, the Regal Wine Company has grown to become one of the largest and most successful wine distributors out of California.

Southern Wine & Spirits

The largest California wine distributor, Southern Wine & Spirits were established in 1969 and have grown into one of the most respected of all wine distributors in the country. Over the years, Southern Wine & Spirits has managed to garner a larger share of the wine market to the point where they are considered the number one distributor in California and run a network located in 32 states that makes them one of the most prominent in the country.

Wine Bridge Imports

Based in Northern California, Wine Bridge Imports is a smaller California wine distributor compared to some on the list, but they have earned a sterling reputation for working with the best wineries both in and outside the United States.

That reputation is built on finding the best wineries and establishing strong relationships with them over the long-term. This family-owned business does things the old-fashioned way in terms of emphasizing quality over fads but is quite modern in their approach to working inside the ever-changing market of wine.

Wine Warehouse

In 1973, Bob and Jim Myerson founded Wine Warehouse and began its operations to bring fine wine to its customers from around the world. By 1978, the company established itself as a wholesaler which emphasized fine wines, representing roughly half of the bonded wineries located in the Napa Valley at the time. By the 1980s, the company had expanded rapidly and grew substantially in meeting the demand for fine wines in the country.

It was not long before Wine Warehouse was recognized as a leader in fine wine, craft beer, and artisanal spirits which has helped propel the company since its founding in 1973. Today, Wine Warehouse is bigger than ever, yet it still emphasizes the same qualities that have made it one of the best in all of California.

Young’s Market Company

One of the oldest and largest of all distributors, Young’s Market Company was founded in 1888 in Los Angeles. Incorporated in 1906, the company expanded considerably over the years to include building a food manufacturing facility in 1910, a high-end retail store in 1925 which quickly spread across California, but it was the emphasis on wine and liquor distribution that soon became a major emphasis. For those interested in selling wine and liquor, this California wine distributor is certainly the most established.

The best California wine distributor is one that offers the wine your customers love at prices that fit your budget. The best distributors work with companies of all sizes and even individuals depending on their needs. For many, the wine business has become more than just a way to reach new customers, but a means to building strong relationships which is the heart of distribution.

The distributors on this list have earned their reputation by providing top-flight service, a wide selection of wines, and offering their product at reasonable prices, so your customers can enjoy the wine that is being produced.
