The Herban Legends Collective scholarship fund announced on Monday that it has received a donation of CBD-rich tincture from LeBlanc CNE.
Located in White Center, Seattle, Washington, Herban Legends in a prepared statement said it has "a strong commitment to making medical marijuana available to as many patients as possible."
LeBlanc CNE is a grower and broker of medical cannabis with a firm belief that healthcare is a right, not a privilege. To that end, LeBlanc tithes itself and donates medical cannabis to Herban Legends.
LeBlanc's most recent donation was of a tincture, Batch #5, rich in cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound responsible for many of marijuana's healing effects.
CBD has been used with children suffering from seizures, PTSD, Crohn's disease, chronic pain, and a number of other conditions.
"LeBlanc is proud to support Herban Legend Collective's goal of bringing medical marijuana to an otherwise underserved neighborhood," said Jerry Whiting, founder of LeBlanc CNE. "How can anyone say ‘no' to alleviating the pain and suffering of others?"
According to Whiting, Batch #5 is an alcohol-based tincture made with cannabis strains like Harlequin and Cannatonic, as opposed to strains of marijuana high in THC favored by recreational users.
Batch #5 was made using 190-proof Everclear. LeBlanc CNE said its whole plant extraction method captured a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes.
