OLEO, Inc. Leads CBD Products Industry in Testing and Regulations

OLEO, Inc. is determined to set best practices for quality, testing, and transparency for CBD products in hopes of seeing wider adoption throughout the industry.

SEATTLE (PRWEB) February 14, 2020
OLEO, Inc., creator of premium CBD drink mixes for fitness recovery, is setting the standard for quality and consistency in CBD products and consumer packaged goods. Rooted in the need for transparency, education and safety for consumers, OLEO triple-tests each batch of OLEO, Inc. products, including OLEO™ drink mixes active ingredient, OleoCBD™, at a third-party laboratory to ensure each serving has at least 25mg of 100% THC-free OleoCBD™. The Certificate of Analysis (COA) for cannabinoid concentration and contaminants in each of these products will always be available for download at http://www.oleolife.com/test-results/, and OLEO, Inc. is determined to set best practices for quality, testing, and transparency in hopes of seeing wider adoption throughout the industry.
In partnership with ProVerde Laboratories, OLEO has worked since 2016 to help develop rigorous analytical testing methods to ensure that CBD concentration is accurately measured and that the CBD products meet food safety protocol, as micro-encapsulation technology is known to require unique sample prep and analytical testing methods. ProVerde Laboratories is widely regarded as a leader in cannabinoid concentration testing in non-standard form factors, and to confirm this OLEO conducted redundant, blind testing with numerous other laboratories and consistently found ProVerde’s results to be the most accurate and unbiased.
“CBD beverages are part of a growing market in an unregulated environment, in which many producers have not taken the necessary steps to document the quality of their products,” said Dr. Christopher Hudalla, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of ProVerde Laboratories. “ProVerde Laboratories has been proud to work with OLEO in the development and evaluation of their CBD drink mixes, to ensure products are accurately labeled for CBD content, and that they are free from potential contaminants, in an effort to ensure consumer safety.”
OLEO™ is also the only CBD company in North America using its own proprietary and patent-pending technology to convert pure CBD oil into a water-soluble powder known as OleoCBD™. This micro-encapsulation technology ensures that OLEO™’s products and Powered by OLEO™ partner products offer double the bioaccessibility of regular CBD, meaning higher amounts of cannabidiol that can be absorbed by the body. The micro-encapsulation process additionally removes any bitter aftertaste, allowing both the flavored and non-flavored drink mixes to taste better than regular CBD products.
OLEO™ drink mixes are available in a variety of flavorless and flavored multi-serving jars and single-serving packets that combine the benefits of 25mg of OleoCBD™ per serving with the power of functional ingredients such as freeze-dried coconut water and real rooibos and black tea, available with or without caffeine to either energize or unwind. All of OLEO™’s drink mixes dissolve quickly in cold or hot water, making them easy to consume at any point throughout the day, helping support full body recovery after an active day. The entire product line not only offers consistent made-in-the-USA quality, but is also guaranteed to be 100% THC-free with zero intoxicating effects. It’s hydration without the high.
“Prior to launching our first-of-their-kind drink mixes in 2017, we conducted two years of extensive R&D in developing our patent-pending micro-encapsulation process,” said Skyler Bissell, CEO and Co-Founder of OLEO, Inc. “The team at ProVerde was instrumental in developing testing methods that could accurately measure the cannabinoid content inside of our encapsulation matrix. We look forward to working with them to continue pushing the industry forward through test method standardization and the kind of rigorous testing protocol that is standard in all OLEO CBD products.”

How Genetic Testing with 23andMe Can Improve Your Health

NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 30, 2020
At-home DNA testing service 23andMe is more than just a tool to discover ancestry – it also offers insight into how genes can impact overall health and wellness. 23andMe offers a wealth of reports that provide genetic health information that can help customers be more proactive about their health. Recently, 23andMe Genetics Trends Expert, Madeline Lynch, and customer Michelle Martinez, teamed with YourUpdateTV to discuss.
A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/qTynVMDVcKY
A recent survey of 23andMe’s Health + Ancestry Service customers found that more than three-quarters reported that after receiving their personalized genetic reports they made at least one positive change in their health behavior. Designed by 23andMe and M/A/R/C Research, researchers asked 23andMe Health + Ancestry customers about the overall impact of their 23andMe experience, regardless of their results.
51 percent of respondents reporting they’ve set future goals to be healthier. Changes included eating healthier, getting more sleep, and exercising more, among others. Of those who responded to the survey:
55 percent reported healthier eating habits including eating more vegetables and cutting out sugar and fast food
45 percent said they were exercising more
42 percent said they were getting more sleep

Madeline Lynch:Madeline Lynch is the Genetics Trends Expert at 23andMe.

She holds a BA from University of California, Davis.
About Michelle Martinez:Michelle Martinez is a 51-year-old lab assistant from Arlington, Texas. Michelle was inspired to order a 23andMe Health + Ancestry kit to help prepare for any potential genetic health risks, due to several serious health risks running in her family. When she opened her Genetic Weight wellness report, she saw that she is genetically predisposed to weigh less than average. She thought, “I’ve been denying my genetics and just falling into bad habits. I’m not being my best self.” That report, along with the knowledge of lifestyle and environmental factors that affect one’s health, inspired Michelle to make better lifestyle decisions like eating healthier. She has since lost more than 50 pounds and gained confidence in being in her own skin. She believes that her weight loss journey is one of patience and acceptance with and of herself — no matter her size.

24/7 STD Testing Online Service is Set to Help as STDs Continue to Rise in the U.S.

Press Release – updated: Jan 18, 2020 11:38 EST

MIAMI, January 18, 2020 (Newswire.com) – A worrying trend in the US shows that rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) continue to rise, with combined cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia hitting a record high in 2019.
With individuals concern about privacy issues, confidentiality, and cost; the lack of STD testing and treatment has always been a concern until now.
247STDTesting.com is an online provider who has partnered with two of the largest FDA-approved and gold standard-rated lab giants, to bring Fast, Private and Affordable 24/7 STD Testing to all 50 states.
“With some of the lowest industry prices, 100% secure and confidential same-day STD Testing, and over 4000 testing centers nationwide, we are helping to make lab testing more accessible,” says Mark Ash, 247 STD Testing Health Support Manager.
According to the CDC, if left untreated, STDs can cause severe health problems. Some of these may develop invisibly over decades, often without any outward signs. It is only years later that severe and sometimes catastrophic complications can develop. [*]
Some examples include: 
​Infertility
Liver Cancer​
​Blindness
Loss of motor skills
​Dementia​
​Damage to the heart, brain, eyes, and bones.
According to 247 STD Testing, their testing is the most cost-effective, provides the fastest results, ensures patient confidentiality and makes getting tested extremely easy.
“Because of our lab relationships, all our tests cost hundreds less than paying directly at the lab or through your doctor. Individuals can get tested for the 8 most common STDs instead of only affording to get one,” says Mark.
After choosing from over 4,000 testing centers nationwide, a customer then visits the center of their choice to get tested (potentially that same day).
This ease of use and the fact that test results will be ready in as fast as 3 business days, helps make the testing processes something that more individuals will want to do.
