Living Longer and Stronger with CBD

Dr. Jim Collins, a nationally recognized aging expert and Founder of Sapphire Essentials that offers a full line of all natural, THC-free CBD products for people 40 years and older joins Enterprise Fit Radio.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. Jim Collins discuss the following:

  1. Your new book, Living Longer and Stronger with CBD, is becoming a cult favorite.  Can you tell us a little about the book and why you decided to write it?
  2. You talk a lot about your family history and your background in the book — was there one specific story that impacted you the most and really propelled you to write the book and if so which one and why?
  3. Many people are under the misconception that CBD is Marijuana.  Can you please explain the difference and also why it is so important that your book really delve into the differences?
  4. Living Longer and Stronger with CBD is really a bible on CBD.  What a terrific resource!  Can you tell us about your personal journey and how you did the research you did for the book and how you created the Sapphire Essentials brand as an additional piece in your CBD platform?
  5. Why is CBD so effective as an integrative care treatment or compliment to treatment and what can we expect to learn from it as it becomes even more mainstream?
