Did you know that The Hemp Exchange has created a "CBD review website"? The website explains that this is an online resource for anyone interested in learning about CBD, hemp, or any other topic relating to this cutting-edge "alternative medicine". CBD is what gives hemp its healing capabilities. So, who created this site? It was created by CFAH, a corporation dedicated to researching and disseminating information on the medicinal uses of all things hemp, organic, and edible. According to the CFAH website, CFAH experts include:

CFAH is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to educating consumers about the benefits of CBD products. In order to join, you must first become a CFAH member. Once a member, you will be sent email updates, information on CFAH events, CFAH news, educational tools, and CFAH expert CBD reviewers. CBD review websites, such as this one, are created in order to inform consumers as to the positive results of using CBD products.

Why do I think these CBD review websites are so important? Well, because there are far too many negative reviews for many products on the market today. If you have read some of these reviews, you have found that many products claim to be natural and safe only to find that they can cause dangerous side effects, which include depression, seizures, and hallucinations. As a result of these dangerous ingredients, many children, teens, and adults are unable to use certain products due to these very unfortunate side effects. This is why I believe that it is so important to look for unbiased and professional reviews from qualified professionals who are knowledgeable about the potential benefits of CFAH products.

The second reason why CFAH has become so popular is because of the many different kinds of supplements that are available to patients with Autism, cerebral palsy, and other developmental disabilities. The fact of the matter is that not every product works for every individual. By having access to an online CFAH resource, parents can determine if a product might be right for their child before trying it. As you may imagine, this type of resource also makes it easier for parents to avoid scams and fake CFAH product testimonials.

Many CFAH review websites also review CGAmeric, Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and Curcumin. These ingredients can be found at local grocery stores and are often used in homeopathic remedies. By taking advantage of these types of naturally-based CFAH products, your child can benefit tremendously from their nutritional needs. The good news is that many of these natural ingredients have been proven safe and effective for children.

Finally, parents who want to educate themselves about CFAH products should make use of CFAH websites to learn more about the different ways that each supplement can help their children. A parent who is just beginning to research CFAH should begin by reading through the CFAH website and supplement chapter, looking for helpful information about the herbs and vitamins involved. If you do not have time to research this information yourself, you can always enlist the help of a local CFAH expert. With a little bit of education, you will no doubt find that CFAH products are right for your child.

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the September 3rd release of WHO YOU THINK I AM, writer-director Safy Nebbou’s romantic cyber-drama turned psychological thriller, based on the best-selling novel by Camille Laurens starring Oscar®-winning actress Juliette Binoche. WHO YOU THINK I AM is scheduled to open in theaters on Friday, September 3, 2021 in NY (Quad Cinema), LA (Landmark), Pasadena and Encino (Laemmle), Boston (Kendall) and Philadelphia (Ritz) followed by a national roll out.
Ghosted by her hunky twentysomething lover, Claire (Binoche - balancing cunning and vulnerability), a middle-aged professor and single mom, creates a fake Facebook profile to do a little undetected online snooping. But when her 24-year-old avatar “Clara”  is friended by her ex’s equally attractive roommate (François Civil), superficial correspondence quickly escalates towards intense intimacy and uncontrollable obsession. Adapted from Camille Laurens’ best-selling novel—and co-scripted by Julie Peyr, a regular collaborator of Arnaud Desplechin—Who You Think I Am blends genres and bends reality to dizzying effect.
Writer-director Safy Nebbou films include The Giraffe’s NeckMark of an AngelThe Other Dumas and In the Forests of Siberia. His stage credits include the 2017 adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage with Laetitia Casta and Raphaël Personnaz. WHO YOU THINK I AM is his sixth feature film.
Acclaimed French-Lebanese jazz composer Ibrahim Maalouf wrote the score of WHO YOU THINK I AM. He won the César and Lumière Awards for Best Score for Nebbou’s In the Forests of Siberia and was nominated for a César in 2015 for Yves Saint LaurentMaalouf has worked with such luminaries as StingSalif KeitaAmadou & MariamVanessa ParadisJuliette Greco, and Archie Shepp.
“With Binoche once more on beguiling form… For anyone who’s ever been catfished or ghosted on the dating trail - her evocation of exhilarated human connection and terrified self-sabotage is uncomfortably easy to empathize with” —Guy Lodge, Variety
"A compulsively watchable drama which taps into some genuinely intriguing themes.” Wendy Ide, Screen International

We are pleased to announce the launch of "Les Chansons de La Petite Ecole"!
La Petite Ecole is a French immersion boutique preschool in NYC with locations in Greenwich Village and the Upper West Side. Our arts-curated program prepares children to become fully bilingual and bicultural, ready to read and write in French by Kindergarten.

Starting in 2013, Joséphine Ancelle began teaching music at La Petite Ecole. Soon thereafter, Virgil de Voldère, the school's director, asked Joséphine to write songs for the school's routine... Songs to say "Hello", "Goodbye" and everything else that happens at school during the day...
Reminiscent of the lighthearted 60s’ French pop with the candor of Joséphine Ancelle’s angelic voice, the songs prompt children, parents, and educators with simple words and catchy melodies to share childhood’s surprises with a smile.
The songs are now available in French and in English on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and most other streaming services.
Enjoy and share!
