Despite the persisting questions around CBD products, Paul Pierce is convinced about their potential benefits. Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a non-psychoactive — and increasingly popular — cannabis plant extract that can be used to treat ailments from mental stress to muscle pain, according to its proponents. Pierce is one of them. And now he’s putting his name — and nickname — behind it. The retired Celtics star and ESPN basketball analyst is launching his own line of hemp-derived CBD targeted toward fellow athletes called The Truth CBD Remedies, according to a press release Tuesday. In addition to the vape pen business he co-founded last fall, the new cartridge line was created to offer fellow athletes a product they can “fully trust,” according to Pierce, who is named as the CEO of the CBD company. “I’m passionate about making sure athletes have support before, during and after the main event,” he said in a statement. … [Read more...] about Paul Pierce is launching his own CBD line called ‘The Truth’

Penguin Random HouseHumankind has outlived the plague, devised countless written and spoken languages, and flown to the moon, but there's one thing humans still haven't figured out: a hangover cure that actually works. Writer Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall spent years researching (that's a fancy way of saying "drinking") for his new book, Hungover: The Morning After and One Man's Quest for the Cure, published last month by Penguin Random House. The book's publicity team has yet to send the Mercury a review copy, but this was probably fiscally smart on their part because this sounds like a required purchase for everyone in the Mercury office.
