Today’s episode is a wide-ranging conversation and interview with Brandon Pitcher. Mr. Pitcher is the owner of Blue Circle Shops, which specializes in USDA-certified organic natural products, primarily hemp and CBD but also others, including marula oil. The official shop website is here. Brandon Pitcher also has a presence on LinkedIn.
The conversation today covers not only CBD, hemp farming and issues, and legalization for hemp and marijuana but addresses issues (specific to Kokomo and globally) such as business, agriculture, the environment, waste streams, and sustainability, as well as forays into other types of creativity, including comedy and entertainment.

Publisher’s Note: The National Institute of Health (NIH), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and Mayo Clinic (among others) have not yet found conclusive evidence of a positive benefit for depression after using CBD products. This does not mean that a positive benefit does not exist, only that the research on it is incomplete. There are some studies that do seem to demonstrate reductions in pain, improvements in epilepsy and Parkinson’s, as well as the well-known benefits of marijuana in managing nausea. Reports of serious harm do not seem to be apparent with the use of CBD products. As ever, if you are seeking help or advice for any medical condition, please consult with a doctor before trying any product.
