*ASBURY PARK, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / September 4, 2018 / *There are over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis and hemp with THC and CBD being the better known among them. But a lesser known cannabinoid called CBG, or cannabigerol, is now attracting more and more attention for its' potential benefits, as more industry watchers suggest this cannabinoid may emerge as something significant that may even rival CBD oil in the coming years, see here https://marijuanawerx.com/.
CBG is a precursor to both THC and CBD. It has no psychoactive response, so it will not produce any intoxicating effects. But, its' potential medicinal properties are currently attracting more and more research interest. Even at this early stage in the scientific communities understanding of CBG, some medical marijuana dispensaries in the United States are now offering strains of cannabis that have high levels of CBG, as indicated by testing. For instance, one medical marijuana dispensary in New Jersey, a State which has recently expanded its' medical marijuana program under Governor Phil Murphy, is offering two strains of medical marijuana with high levels of CBG (cannabigerol).
Typically, CBG is present in higher concentrations in hemp than in cannabis since recreational marijuana is bred to have a high THC content level, leaving most recreational strains with only tiny amounts of CBG. However, there are some strains of marijuana bred specifically for a higher CBG content. Research on the possible benefits of CBG is just beginning. One small study in Italy suggested CBG may have strong anti-inflammatory properties but much more research is needed. In the meantime, at least one grower in Oregon is switching his focus from CBD to CBG.
On the investor front, the company that owns the best-known and popular CBD brand, Charlotte's Web Holdings, the maker of Charlotte's Web Hemp Oil CBD recently went public with an IPO on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE). There are other publicly traded cannabis related businesses trading on stock exchanges in the US and Canada that are profiled on MarijuanaWerx including Choom Holdings, Leafbuyer Technologies, Rocky Mountain High Brands, Aurora Cannabis, PotNetwork Holding, MedReLeaf Corp, Aphria Inc., United Cannabis Corp, Abattis Bioceuticals, Canopy Growth Corp, GW Pharmaceuticals, Cannagrow Holdings and others.
The MarijuanaWerx business-to-business directory has many categories and numerous companies listed. Current brands profiled include Willie Nelsons Willie's Reserve, Tommy Chong Chong's Choice, CBDPure Softgel capsules, Green Powered Solutions, Bluebird Botanicals, The Cannabis Marketing Lab, Cannaguard Security, Charlottes Web CBD Hemp Oil and many more.
Public attitudes toward both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are changing rapidly. Accordingly, more states are allowing or expanding their medical marijuana programs and others have made recreational marijuana legal in their respective states. The end of cannabis prohibition now seems inevitable and marijuana related businesses of all kinds are establishing themselves in anticipation of an explosive new industry in the works. And, this is all happening as federal marijuana laws remain unchanged, at least for the time being. In anticipation of the emerging legal marijuana industry, one college in New Jersey will be offering classes for students who can minor in marijuana to prepare students interested in working in this field. The college is Stockton University. Stockton University joins other colleges with marijuana classes including The University of Vermont and Northern Michigan University.
MarijuanaWerx is an A+ Rated Better Business Bureau Accredited organization based in Asbury Park, NJ that publishes an industry leading a business-to-business cannabis directory.

· *Amazon is the second US company to reach a $1 trillion valuation, after Apple hit the milestone earlier this month.*
· *The stock gained 2% to hit the magic number of $2,050.27 per share on Tuesday.*
· *Follow Amazon's stock price in real time here. *
It’s official: Amazon is the second American company to achieve a valuation of more than $1 trillion.
Shares of the e-commerce giant gained about 2% in trading Tuesday to hit an all-time high of $2,050.27. Multiplied by the current number of shares outstanding — 487,741,189 — that puts the company’s book value just over the same symbolic milestone that Apple hit less than one month ago.
One trillion is a difficult number to imagine, regardless of what's being counted. And even less so when it's the value of a 24-year-old company with a plethora of business units in addition to its core retail focus. For context, the entire US stock market — the sum of all publicly traded American companies including Amazon — hit $30 trillion back in January.
Even more telling is Amazon's size when compared to the entire national stock markets of other countries. It's book value is now greater than that of every stock listed in all but 13 countries, including those of Taiwan, Spain, and Italy, according to the CIA’s World Factbook.
For the fiscal year 2017, Amazon and its 560,000 employees around the world reported total sales of $177.87 billion, netting it an adjusted profit of $6.15 per share, according to the company's annual report.
But of that massive revenue, retail is slowly beginning to take a backseat to other, higher-margin services. Amazon Web Services, for instance, a unit that provides hosting and cloud computing for other businesses, brought in $20 billion of revenue in 2017.
Here’s the breakdown of how Morgan Stanley — one of the stock’s most bullish sell-side shops —sees Amazon’s five main units in terms of value:
Note that Morgan Stanley's theoretical breakdown assumes a stock price of $2,500 — higher than Amazon's current price, and thus a market value of slightly higher at $1.32 trillion.
Such astronomical growth from a small, Seattle book seller to one of the world’s biggest companies, has made its founder and chief executive, Jeff Bezos, easily the richest person in the world. The 54-year-old is now worth more than $166 billion, according to Bloomberg’s billionaires index on Tuesday. The riches have largely come through his ownership of 16.3% of Amazon’s outstanding stock. Bezos brought home an annual salary of $81,840 in 2017, according to regulatory filings.
"This year marks the 20th anniversary of our first shareholder letter, and our core values and approach remain unchanged," Bezos said in his 2017 letter to shareholders in March of this year.
"We continue to aspire to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, and we recognize this to be no small or easy challenge. We know there is much we can do better, and we find tremendous energy in the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."

Father and daughter team will share company’s wellness tourism innovations and the advantages that new generations of leadership bring to their award-winning properties
MIAMI (PRWEB) September 05, 2018
The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, today announced that international hotelier Sir Rocco Forte and his daughter, Irene Forte, will share insights into how intergenerational collaboration has helped the award-winning hospitality company embrace generations of guests, including the coveted millennials. The Forte’s highly anticipated keynote will take place at the 12th-annual Summit at Technogym Village, Cesena, Italy, October 6-8.
Rocco Forte Hotels, led by Sir Rocco Forte, his sister Olga Polizzi and his children Lydia, Irene and Charles, are a leading example of the power of legacy in the wellness industry–and how the next generation can have a significant impact on a long-standing family business.
“The success of Rocco Forte Hotels demonstrates how forward-thinking, intergenerational management is shaping the business of wellness for millennials and generation Z,” said GWS Chairman and CEO Susie Ellis. “They are a perfect example of reverse mentoring, where wisdom and experience are taught from the top down and technology and insight into new trends are taught from the bottom up.”
Deloitte’s 2017 NextGen Survey* underscores the importance of next generation leaders, “… who are more aware of the meaning and effect of disruption than the previous generation.” According to the survey, family-owned businesses also have an advantage in times of disruption because they are agile, compared to other organizations.
“All of my children play key roles in developing the roadmap for Rocco Forte Hotels,” said Sir Rocco Forte. “Irene’s love of wellness and travel combined with her deep insight into millennials’ preferences has helped us really stand apart from other luxury hotel brands when it comes to developing our wellness portfolio.”
“For millennials, wellness is a daily, active pursuit, and this generation will soon surpass baby boomers in overall travel spending,” said Group Project & Spa Director Irene Forte. “When developing our wellness concept, we thought about what millennials look for when choosing a hotel. With this in mind, we want our guests to find wellness at every touch point when staying with us—whether it is in the spa, restaurant or even in the room.”
Other family-owned companies will share secrets of their intergenerational business successes during the 2018 GWS, including Technogym’s Founder and CEO Nerio Alessandri and his two children, Erica, a non-exec member of the board, and Edoardo who, while completing his studies in Business Administration at the Hult International Business School, has spent his summer working in the company’s digital marketing team.
According to a 2017 report** from the Credit Suisse Research Institute (CSRI), family-owned businesses outperform their peers in every region and sector. The report also notes that these businesses focus on long-term growth and the financial performance of family-owned companies is superior to that of non-family-owned businesses.
Sir Rocco Forte is a British hotelier, philanthropist and chairman of Rocco Forte hotels. Founded in 1996, the company operates 11 luxury hotels in key European destinations, including one in Saudi Arabia. Sir Rocco was knighted in December 1994 for services to the UK tourism industry and received the highest Italian accolade, the Gran Croce dell’Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana in 2005.
Irene Forte is the group project director at Rocco Forte Hotels. She oversees wellness offerings across the group and has launched her own skin-care line: Irene Forte Skincare. In addition, she leads learning and development projects. In 2015, Forte was awarded government funding to create the Map My Future app to attract and retain a younger more technologically savvy workforce. The app has been available in the hotels since 2016.

Age is no barrier in bridge and not many know it better than 60-year-old Asian Games gold medallist Pranab Bardhan, who has offered free tutorials to do his bit for the card sport in the country.
"I want to give back to bridge, I have a lot to give back. I want to help the children, youngsters play this sport. I am going to go back home and tell everyone that I am willing to give tips and help out any kid who is interested in this game," Bardhan told PTI on the sidelines of a felicitation ceremony arranged by HCL on Wednesday.
Bridge made its Asian Games debut in Jakarta. India returned home with three medals from the sport which included a gold won by Bardhan and Shibnath De Sarkar in the men's pair event and a bronze each in the men's team and mixed team events.
After emerging victorious and receiving recognition for their efforts, the duo hope the myth that bridge is the same as gambling is busted. "We've won this (gold) medal, we are the best in Asia. No questions. We have shown the way, bridge is a game, a sport just like chess and now everyone should stop believing that bridge is gambling," Bardhan, who started playing at the age of 20, said. "Bridge is a game of the mind, it is a mental sport. It's like chess. It is driven only pure logic and you don't need to be old to understand logic," he added.
Apart from logic, the game also requires the partners to be in absolute sync with each other and this is particularly difficult because the players can't talk to each other. "When we play we can't talk to each other. We communicate by other means. Maybe it's just the way I keep my bidding card or we read what the opponent is doing. Based on that our defence language will start with each other," Bardhan said.
The road to success was not easy for the two as they couldn't meet everyday to train. They had to resort to using the internet to train. "Training was very difficult. We didn't meet everyday. We trained via internet. So we had to be very sure that we didn't do anything in practice that we wouldn't be able to do on the main table," Bardhan said.
Contrary to the notion that bridge is an old-peoples' game, the sport has steadily carved a niche amongst the youngsters. "Bridge has progressed a lot in the last five years. I took a team of children to Italy to play the world championships recently. Then Israel invited us to play and in August our kids took part in the world youth championships. This medal will motivate the children to play even more now," a jubilant Sarkar, 56, said.

The Luxury Hotel Portfolio Releases Their Latest Cookbook Amidst the Height of Culinary Tourism Available Now at slh.com
(PRWEB) September 05, 2018
At a time when food tourism is becoming more popular, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) is launching a collection of handpicked recipes from the brand’s portfolio of over 520 hotels in more than 80 countries. The Small Luxury Cookbook features 142 tantalising main dishes created by chefs, from local tastemakers to globally renowned masters of their craft, who champion regional produce and unique gourmet experiences designed to tempt the taste buds of discerning travellers around the world.
The Small Luxury Cookbook features many recipes that have been passed down through generations or are inspired by world-class fine dining curated by internationally recognised chefs; More than 110 SLH hotels have restaurants that carry Michelin stars or awards of similar global acclaim. From Maldivian tuna with tropical fruit salsa and slow cooked Greek octopus with aubergine miso to Swiss chard ravioli with scallops and Valencian paella with crayfish and mussels, the array of cuisine and technique of these special recipes offer at-home chefs a taste of luxury.
To coincide with the release of the new cookbook, SLH identified some of the biggest culinary insights to note for this year. Below is a sampling, showcasing the diversity of SLH’s global cuisine. To access the full report please click here:· Butterfly Pea Flower Tea (blue tea) has been around for centuries but is only now getting global attention thanks to its high antioxidant content and incredible health properties including enhancing memory and decreasing stress. The Racha, an eco-luxury beach resort in Phuket, Thailand, welcomes guests with a cup of Butterfly Pea Flower Tea that is grown locally on the island and infused with organic Thai lime.
· Unique dining experiences show that guests are increasingly seeking out-of-this-world dining options and ambience. At Milaidhoo Island Maldives, the resort offers five different curated mood dining menus paired with wellness treatments including special baths, meditation and spa treatments to transport guests into a state of Zen. In Cyprus, Columbia Beach Resort hosts a series of full moon dinners on the beach every summer for their discerning guests.
· Unusual food pairings such as green tea with French cuisine can be found at the ABBA Resorts Izu in Japan whilst The Lalit London offers naan and wine pairings at its restaurant, Baluchi.
· Wellness-led food options are inspired by guests wanting to focus on self-care and restoring balance on holiday. HGU New York serves up a liquid lunch menu made entirely of freshly blended juices whilst the Ovolo Woolloomooloo in Sydney includes a plant-based restaurant featuring dishes such as kimchi dumplings, zucchini lasagna with pistachio pesto or hibiscus strawberry cheesecake.
· Appetite for hyper-local cuisine has been driven by travellers wanting to taste food straight from the source and rediscover ancient and forgotten ingredients. Casa Angelina Lifestyle Hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Italy, has recently introduced two new floral-based cocktails to its bar repertoire, designed to showcase oranges and lemons from the region. El Lodge Ski & Bar in the mountains of Sierra Nevada, Granada, serves Riofrío organic caviar (indigenous to the Andalusian province) at the El Grill restaurant, accompanied by blinis and sour cream. Les Sources de Caudalie in Bordeaux offers a vegetal lunch with dishes including nettle soup and wild daisy or strawberry gazpacho with immortelle flower ice cream.
· Asian Hotpot is becoming increasingly popular all over the world, due in part to the rising interest in convivial dining and bold, spicy flavours. Chef Nguyen Than Hieu and his team at Naman Retreat in central Vietnam have created their own Naman Special Hotpot featuring ingredients such as lemongrass, tofu, seafood and noodles.
Daniel Luddington, SLH Vice President of Development says: “The beauty of the Small Luxury Cookbook can be likened to our hotels, as it offers something for every independently minded traveller and self-professed ‘foodie’. Whether you may be an occasional, aspiring or proficient chef, these SLH recipes have been created with passion in mind and we are excited to give the world a taste of our hotels.”
All recipes in the book are accompanied by step by step instructions, as well as alternative suggestions for any hard to source ingredients allowing for a chance to recreate not only the dishes, but holiday memories at home.
The Small Luxury Cookbook is available for purchase at http://www.slh.com/food and participating SLH hotels with an MSRP of $52.
