BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Dolly gives straight talk on phony CBD endorsements

Dolly Parton

CBD gummies for “severe and critical” pain relief? Sorry, but Dolly Parton — country music legend, actress, businesswoman, and dedicated philanthropist — isn’t rolling with it.

In a post shared to her Instagram on Feb. 1, Ms. Parton is shutting down claims that she endorses questionable marijuana-based CBD and ketogenic products, amid outcry from fans.

As has been widely reported, social media advertisements have been claiming the benefits of Dolly Parton-branded CBD and keto gummies to relieve joint pain, sleepless nights and even “reverse dementia.”

“Dolly Parton is not affiliated with, has not endorsed, and is not associated with any keto or CBD gummy product. She’s more the cake, cookie, and cornbread type,” the post, which was signed “Team Dolly,” read. (She has recently partnered with Duncan Hines for a line of cake products.)
