Dominica-born businessman seeks to create synergy with sugar and marijuana to revive regional agriculture

From Caribbean News Now

DENVER, USA– As the marijuana industry continues to expand, Dominica-born Elvis “Papi” Edwards is exploring ways in which Cannabidiol (CBD) – one of the many components found in the plant that does not get people ‘stoned’ – could be used to promote good health.

Research has shown that CBD has several therapeutic benefits in the treatment of various conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, diabetes, PTSD, alcoholism, strokes and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other ailments (California NORML, n.d.).

And so armed with this information, Edwards has dedicated his time to manufacturing and developing products that incorporate CBD as part of their ingredients in his hopes of bringing relief to sufferers of various medical conditions.

Edwards also wants to contribute towards the economy of the Caribbean, especially the local economies of his native island of Dominica and his adopted country, Antigua.

He believes that the dying agricultural sector in the region can be revived with cannabis and other related crops that are currently being used in the products that his companies manufacture.

One of the products that Edwards thinks could revolutionize the cannabis industry is the “CBD Enriched Sugar” product soon to be launched by his company, CBDxr.

Globally, more than a million metric tons of sugar is consumed every year – whether it is with coffee, tea, juice, in cakes or in cookies, sugar is highly used. Edwards believes that if CBD is added to sugar, then there would be no easier way for people to get their daily dose of CBD into their systems and get the medicinal benefits they need.

It is with that in mind that Edwards hopes that the Caribbean can fully put more energy into agriculture and go directly into the planting of sugar cane and marijuana in addition to thinking about other products that can be fused with cannabis.

Sugar cane was once one of the Caribbean region’s biggest exports while marijuana is mostly illegal in the region. The cultivation of both crops simultaneously and fusing them to produce an enriched sugar-cannabis product would be an exciting, lucrative and innovative endeavour for the Caribbean considering the favourable weather conditions where both products can thrive naturally.

CBDxr is a vertically integrated, disruptive healthcare solutions company. Its purpose is to create a future where the human body can repair, restore, and rejuvenate itself. Unlike typical big pharma that creates synthetic drugs to treat symptoms, CBDxr uses natural plants and compounds to address the underlying deficiencies and bring the body into homeostasis. Starting with select active ingredients and combining them into specific medical delivery systems, CBDxr can service doctors and patients in an entirely new way.

Camana Bay September Events

For the full list of event details this month and weekly rituals, click here.

September is Literacy Month and throughout the entire month Camana Bay is celebrating and encouraging reading for all ages! This year’s theme is Unravelling Mysteries Through Reading, and activities include the return of the Scavenger Hunt, where children can unravel the clues given to them to solve a case! Once children have solved the mystery, they can return their map to Books & Books and receive 10% off their next book purchase. While children are visiting Books & Books they can enter the Advent Calendar competition by writing about their favourite book to be entered for the chance to open an advent calendar door during the holiday season.

During Literacy Month we will also be supporting a number of local authors who have written children’s books. These include Kate Ure, author of Alphabet Island, Kathleen Bodden Harris, author of Quest on a Marl Road and EK Jasmine, author of H is for Heritage. Adults can also take part in reading by attending this month’s Bookends Club at Books & Books, which will cover The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

Camana Bay will also be showing our support to LIFE (Literacy Is For Everyone) by contributing 10% of all mystery-themed book sales during the month of September to the organisation. Bring the family down to Camana Bay to show your support and encourage reading!

At the end of the month on Saturday, September 29 ,your children can also take part in Gamers Bay, the annual Video Gaming Tournament and Convention in the Cayman Islands, which is the ultimate event for gaming enthusiasts. On Sunday, September 30, come out and show your support for breast cancer awareness as Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa hosts its Annual Cut-A-Thon for the 18th year in a row. Treat yourself to salon services at discounted prices and funds will benefit The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens’ Breast Cancer Awareness Fund.

Come out to Camana Bay this September and show your support for good causes while enjoying all that the Town Centre has to offer!
