A Super Quick review of Hemp’s History – Plus: The Sin of CBD

You’re Getting Ripped Off when You Buy CBD?

It's a good idea to get a COA with your CBD purchase. This means the industry is policing itself and you should review the COA.

I Certify that this is Honest to Goodness Good for you!

If these are the words coming from the mouth of any vendor of CBD, or pretty much anything else, you should know that it’s likely a good time to keep moving. Most people ignore the fact that CBD is a botanical substance and it affects people in different magnitudes. Also, let’s not forget that some products are inferior to others.

Here’s a quick list of a few things for you to examine when you’re in the market for Hemp Oil Extract, particularly CBD and related Full Spectrum oils:

  1. Get the COA – The Certificate of Analysis is the starting point for reasonable due diligence when it comes to checking out your product. With CBD Oil and other extracts, they’re often blended with MCT, Olive or another carrier oil for dilution and absorption. But, if you’re not able to know just by examining the oil, how potent it is, you may be getting a horrible oil for a horrible price. The COA as in the example shown below, will detail the level THC/CBD/CBG and other terpenes and cannabinoids as requested by the firm presenting the material for testing. In the example below, you see that the company Hemp Adaptives™ has a 2000mg (60ml) jar with considerably more CBD than advertised (it actually tested at 2048..8mg). Plus, THC is just a very minute amount, but present.lt;Learn why Hemp Adaptives is so Popular - Value of CBD
  2. Ask friends – We’re aware that some people will buy anything from anybody. But, it’s often a good idea to ask around before buying some things. Yes, even CBD can have people with strong opinions – either way (for or against). Getting input from others IS helpful – even if others are against it. Be aware that learning from others helps you build a starting point for more research. You’ll hear things like “that stuff was a rip off!” or “it worked like a charm for me – I sleep like a baby now.” Use these as a baseline when you do your own homework.
  3. Do the math – Really. Do the math. David took some time in the winter to do a quick video on determining the strength of your CBD oil. Use this as a guide to calculating how strong the CBD oil you’re taking is. You really want to concentrate on keeping Like items with Like items. For example, MCT oil based Full Spectrum drops labelled 500mg with another brand MCT oil based Full Spectrum also labelled 500mg. You’ll find a HUGE disparity in product pricing per milligram in some products. Are they really that high in variation in quality? More homework is needed.

Where to learn a bit more about Strength of your CBD and Hemp Oil

David and I have been working to keep up with research on just about “anything hemp”. This has led us to create a lot of helpful guides for our customers. One of these is a useful guide to quickly determine whether you’re getting a good value for your money with CBD oil and related Full Spectrum oils.

For a limited time, we will be giving away those guides are the grand opening to our newest Store in North Carolina located in Hillsborough. We’ll be announcing the grand opening as we get closer to our big day and the crews get closer to finishing the updating to the shop.

But, you can always refer to earlier videos for a bit of help.

Do you get “Popcorn lung” from Vaping?

Hemp Oil Rockstar offers Vaping products from Funky Farms CBD, Hemplucid and others

According to WebMD, popcorn lung is "the nickname for bronchiolitis obliterans. That's a condition that damages your lungs' smallest airways and makes you cough and feel short of breath. It's sometimes caused by breathing in a chemical used to flavor microwave popcorn. But other chemicals or lung illnesses can also cause popcorn lung."

The big culprit in popcorn lung is the chemical that gave this condition its nickname is diacetyl. Not as many products these days actually have diacetyl. But, there are some flavored e-juice manufacturers still loading up their tanks with it.

For sake of clarification, the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar has never and won't ever stock items that contain diacetyl.

We're always happy with our Nature's Love products which have Zero PG and Zero VG. The wonderful terpene blends from Funky Farms CBD area also great choices for people who want a large blast of CBD without sacrificing the terpene flavor available from Hemp Oil Extract - plus they're also Zero PG/VG!

If you cruise around our websites, you'll also find a fun vegetable glycerin (VG)/propylene glycol (PG) 50/50 blend in the vape e-juices from Funky Farms CBD as well. No diacetyl at all. We're still cautious with any non hemp ingredients, so we're always keeping up with the information on VG and PG in any vape products we offer. We can assure you we're still concentrating on making sure we not only have effective Hemp Oil extract products in stock - but they're safe.

I love my Gas Station CBD just like I love Gas Station Sushi!

Did you buy your CBD from a Guy in Dark Glasses and an overcoat?

"I just bought some CBD from the Gas Station!"

I've had a number of good people come to me at the store or at events where I've been a speaker. I get asked TONS of questions. One question I get is "How do I know the CBD oil I buy is good?" Well, I've answered this a number of times in other videos so I hope you're able to see some of my videos on my sites or simply subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get caught up on some super information. But, I wanted to take a moment to address specifically  "Gas Station CBD" which is a topic that has come up as a cousin of the question above.

Maybe you shouldn't trust Gas Station CBD for your health. Maybe you should be wary of Multi Level Marketing companies with CBD like PrimeMyBody and HempWorx

At the various events which I've been invited to speak, I nearly always ensure that there is time for Q&A. I love answering questions about Hemp and it's constituents. I love HELPING people. When I know people are becoming more educated consumers, I also know it helps the industry as a whole.

I do not want people to get ripped off by shady operators. Think about it, there are shady operators all over the place. Whether it's selling cleaning products or door to door steaks or multi level marketed CBD - you're going to find people "in it for the money" and NOT your health.

Did you buy your CBD from a Guy in Dark Glasses and an overcoat?

"Excuse me, do you know what CBD Isolate means?"

Quality CBD and Full Spectrum Products MAY be available at your local gas station. But, are you willing to put your health on the line when it comes to the cashier understanding the quality of the product they are selling? Do they know what an isolate is vs Full Spectrum? Are you getting good value?

Did you buy your CBD from a Guy in Dark Glasses and an overcoat?

It's key to get your CBD products from a vendor who is 1) looking out for you, 2) knows what they are selling, and 3) isn't "out to make a buck" first.

Ask yourself if these things matches YOUR CBD vendor.

Mary Lòpez Carter and her Hemp Oil Rockstar Team wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

CBD can enrich your life. Have a great thanksgiving and amazing Black Friday

Read the Original Mail Post here

Life is about YOU Reaching for More!

I'm thankful for my life and the things I have in it. A recent occurrence really set things into perspective for me and I'm hoping me sharing this with you helps you to appreciate what you have as well.

As you may know, I've expanded the Hemp Oil Rockstar branding with our new Carolina Hemp Hut. The first store is in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC. I've hired wonderful people to work with me and we're having a great time. I'm also a very active Realtor® in the Triangle and I've been coordinating my limited time at the shop in Durham while I still make sure I have all of my bases covered with my Real Estate clients.

This last week, while I was covering a shift for one of my employees, I was greeted by an unusual customer. He ended up purchasing several items from the shop AND he pocketed my Samsung smart phone as he finished the transaction. I didn't notice until he was gone and I was closing up the shop.

Making a rather lengthy story shorter, I'll summarize by revealing I was very upset. I loved that phone. I used if for my Real Estate work all the time. I used it for the Hemp Oil Rockstar work. And, it wasn't very old.

My husband, David, wanted to be sure I was safe. He didn't worry about the phone. "We can replace a phone" was what he told me. This was the first step in helping me regain my perspective.Hemp Oil Rockstar gives thanks to the fans and customers who appreciate high quality customer service and CBD Hemp Oil

A good night's sleep later, I went in to the shop the NEXT morning both energized and full of vigor. I was determined to have the best possible day I could. I wasn't going to let a negative take me down. I was THANKFUL for my family, I was THANKFUL for the fruits of my hard work (working multiple jobs to make things come together for my family), and I was THANKFUL that all I lost was an (expensive) phone.

Losing the phone meant I was out of communication for a bit. But, my husband had the forethought to have already purchased a replacement phone which already had a SIM card and was fully charged. I had to visit Verizon and get things activated, but I wasn't down long.

By the time I returned to my shop in the Streets at Southpoint Mall, there was a line at my shop, waiting for me to open!

I was shocked. Yes, I was late opening as I had scheduled myself to be the opener and I also wanted to make sure I took care of my new phone activation so I didn't miss any Real Estate calls (which I get a lot!) during the day. I was floored that so many people were waiting at my shop!

I ended up selling more CBD and Hemp Oill products in the first hour after opening than I had the entire previous day (when my phone was stolen). I truly believe that my positive outlook on the situation CHANGED my negative experience to a positive outcome.  My determination and intention to have a stellar day manifested in positive rewards DESPITE the bad luck I had.

Despite negative things in your life, you CAN make the best of your LIFE by changing how you REACT to them. Make the BEST of each given moment to the BEST of your ability. You can be THANKFUL and REWARDED more in your life.
I find people at our Mall location to be looking for help. Nearly everyone either has something in their life that is a negative. It could be bad health, it could be an ill relative, it could be work - who knows? Regardless, every one of my wonderful customers has taken the steps to IMPROVE their health when they take the opportunity to try Cannibidiol (CBD) and Hemp Oil Products.

Perhaps they first learned of my Store opening from the newspaper. Perhaps a friend told them to check the web for CBD stores in the area.

Whatever the reason, people are able to take ACTION with their health and make improvements. I want people to be HEALTHIER. I want people to embrace more positives in their lives so they too can be filled with GRATITUDE.

I am THANKFUL that I have a wonderful family who cares about me and strives to help me. I am THANKFUL that I have been blessed with good results when I WORK HARD and DON'T GIVE UP easily.

I wish EVERYONE a HAPPY and THOUGHTFUL Time this Thanksgiving!

Hemp Day Video: What is CBD/Hemp Oil Extract?

Mary Lopez Carter Talks about What is CBD Hemp Oil

"I see you have CBD, what is that?"

At our Main retail store for Carolina Hemp Hut (Located in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC), I get a lot of customer queries. One of the most popular questions I get asked is "What is CBD Oil or Hemp Oil?"

I'm happy to answer this question and I hope to dispel some myths about CBD and Hemp Oil.

Note: The new store's Grand Opening (Oct 27) Celebration is open to all as it is designed to let people know about not only the store, but about what Hemp Oil MAY offer to people. We still operate the website for the store (https://CarolinaHempHut.com) and the main store site at https://hempoilrockstar.com If you're curious about CBD Oil and #HempOil extracts, then I'm hoping this video will present a primer for you and your friends.

Please, consider sharing this information with family and friends. We have all too many people thinking that CBD or Hemp products are absolutely illegal and this is UNTRUE! Further, with the likely form of the new farm bill (McConnell amendment) and the lean from President Trump, we're more likely to see a wave of CBD usage across the country.

Hemp Day Video: The Three (3) Key Questions you need to Ask Your Hemp Oil Extract Retailer

What do You know about Your Hemp Oil?

Mary Carter, Hemp Oil consultant, covers three key questions that you should ask before buying your CBD/Hemp Oil from any retailer. These three simple questions will help you become more aware of the quality available in Hemp Oil. Mary's learned that these three questions will assist any buyer of Hemp Oil to be better aware of the product and not as easily fall for bad product sales.

Mary Carter presents the 3 Key Questions You should Ask

If you're not able to see the video, you may try viewing it here on Hemp Oil Rockstar's Facebook page.

Choosing The Best Hemp Oil

I've often told the story about how I selected the best hemp oil extract for my retail stores. There truly are a lot of hemp oils available on the market. Some are horrible and really a waste of money and others are super-premium all around.

The three questions I used within the Hemp Day video are just three of the many questions and qualifiers that I followed when it came to deciding on the best product mix. I'll likely make a full video of the process I followed. In the interim, be sure to check out all of my Hemp Day Videos and come in to the Streets at Southpoint Mall and visit with us at our Store Kiosk, "The Carolina Hemp Hut".

US Farm Bill allows for Broader legalization of Hemp and products

What the Bill Reveals

In the Agricultural Act of 2014 (“Farm Bill”) regarding industrial hemp, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other organizations were given the "green light" to go ahead with pilot programs to allow for hemp to be sold. This led to the adoption by many States of pilot programs to permit growing of the hemp plants in their jurisdictions. This is what provides the lion's share of legal status for hemp and hemp products (such as CBD).

The term “industrial hemp” includes the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part or derivative of such plant, including seeds of such plant, whether growing or not, that is used exclusively for industrial purposes (fiber and seed) with a tetrahydrocannabinols concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. The term “tetrahydrocannabinols” includes all isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers of tetrahydrocannabinols.

Every five years, Congress passes legislation that sets national agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry policy, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill”. In this year's version, many amendments (as will happen with our Congress) were added. The one with the real teeth was Mitch McConnell's amendment. This one more openly allows for Hemp legalization (far more than allowed under the 2014 Farm Bill). Although the final passage of this bill has not hit the goal line with the House's version, many are hopeful that it will so it can be signed quickly into law by President Donald Trump.

Hemp Day Video: Drug Testing and CBD Oil from Hemp

Don't let legal problems come from false positive on CBD and THC urine test

Passing a Drug Test is a worry? What will a Urine Test reveal?

Are you worried about whether you will pass a Drug Test after taking Hemp Oil with CBD? Have you heard about the horror stories of people getting penalized because they're not smoking pot but taking Hemp Oil for aches, pains or some other condition of discomfort - and they're worried about the drug test at work? There are a 6 points you need to know about this worry.

I'll help you understand where the pitfalls are and what you can do to avoid trouble from this "simple misunderstanding" - Don't be penalized for doing something that is NOT ILLEGAL.

Don’t let Your CBD healthy and Legal Habit get you into Legal Trouble

A urinary test procedure for identification of cannabidiol in patients undergoing medical therapy with marijuana

Marijuana is classified by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as Schedule I, drugs having no accepted medical value. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. This conflict inhibits physicians from prescribing marijuana and the systematic study of marijuana in medical care. This study concerns the use of the clinical laboratory as a resource for physicians recommending cannabidiol (CBD) to patients, or for patients using medical marijuana. Marijuana containing delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive.

However, CBD is not psychoactive. CBD is reported to have medical benefit for seizure control, neurologic disorders including multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain and pain associated with cancer.

It was revealed that the studies DID SHOW that CBD with trace THC can caused positives even though the user is taking CBD legally and the THC within that Hemp Oil is well within the legal limits of .3%. This information may be rendered moot should President Donald Trump sign into law a passed Farm Bill (2018) which includes the intact amendment from Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). More on this topic will be reported by the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar.

For more information on the government report covering the outcomes of the testing, visit here.

CBD/Hemp Oil: Can it Be Used to Alleviate Migraine Pain?

I have a number of customers who've told me about their migraine issues. I'll tell you the story about what led me to understand more about CBD (Hemp Oil) and it's application with Migraine discomfort. If you have a headache pain, there may better solutions than expensive prescriptions or suffering.

One suggestion: Avoid the pain altogether. Treat the situation before you get the headache - if you're prone to migraines.
