The Southern University and A&M College, the largest historically black university in Louisiana, serving African-American students since the 1800s – well before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed in the U.S., has launched its own hemp-derived CBD product line: ALAFIA.
According to information procured exclusively, the brand is the result of a partnership between the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Baton Rouge and Ilera Holistic Healthcare. The lab tested and pesticide-free products will be available for over-the-counter purchase across the U.S. soon, the makers say, in compliance with the 2018 Farm Bill. So far, however, the line is only available at select locations across Louisiana — where sales commenced today, and features two products: Isolate CBD and Full Spectrum CBD. Additional CBD products will be released soon, a company spokesperson added
