National exposure for cannabinoids and their medical value comes in many forums…and the Denver based Dixie Elixirs and Edibles Co. is about to get some serious prime time attention.
This Sunday October 21 at 7:30 PM ET…60 Minutes will do a piece on Dixie Elixirs and Edibles. Although the main thrust of the piece will focus on Denver‘s thriving medical marijuana industry… one of the key interviews that will be airing on the “Rocky Mountain High” show will feature – Red Dice Holdings President and ManagingDirector of Dixie Elixirs – Tripp Keber.[nggallery id=644]
Mr. Keber will present the 27,000 square foot state of the art Dixie manufacturing facility in Denver, Colorado that produces the revolutionary Dixie Elixirs and Edibles product lines, which are sold to over 500 legal dispensary accounts throughout the state. Dixie has also just launched the ground breaking new non THC, CBD Hemp-Based Dixie X health and wellness product line, which is available over the counter through online orders to customers in all 50 U.S. states. It has recently been medically documented that Cannabidiols (CBD) may offer powerful relief to people suffering from ailments ranging from epilepsy to metastatic cancers.
Over the past several months, local media and national cable networks have steadily covered the topic of medical marijuana, however, this 60 Minutes airing marks a historical moment for both Medical Marijuana, Inc. and the industry as a whole. The show will broadcast to an unprecedented number of viewers just 16 days before the U.S. Presidential Elections. With medical marijuana legalization measures also on the ballot for November, the show will investigate a number of critical issues at stake including the industry’s complex legal structures, how medical marijuana businesses have created thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in state tax revenues for medically legalized states, yet remain prohibited by federal law. Additional interviews on the segment will include a prize-winning grower and dispensary investor in Colorado. Source
