It’s Hip To Hemp – Carolina Hemp Hut Opens Officially in Orange County

Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens and other representatives from the business community gather to celebrate Carolina Hemp Hut's grand opening

News of Orange: It's Hip to be Hemp

The Carolina Hemp Hut Grand Opening for the Hillsborough flagship store means Orange County now has a source for all things hemp.

The recent grand opening celebration was heralded recently in the New of Orange (covering Orange County, NC and Hillsborough, NC).

The event was announced on WHUP and via many social media platforms. The Hillsborough/Orange County Chamber of Commerce hosted the event.

Mary Carter Supports Buying Local

Mary and David Carter were looking at locations to expand their growing Hemp Hut hempire out of the Mall-based store which was opened in October, 2018. As Realtors in the same market area as their home in Hillsborough, they looked deeply into the demographics and growth projections for the area. Their analysis was coupled with the growth projections for the Industrial Hemp market space. This led to an easy decision for the couple to grow at home in Hillsborough.

The Store lease was signed in early 2019 and the build out began soon after. A few construction delays led to a later than expected preview day on April 20, 2019 (04/20 is a common theme among Hemp enthusiasts). The store opened for business officially on May 1, 2019.

Word quickly spread about the opening with the aid of the oft-controversial signage at the Hemp Hut (a hemp leaf is featured on the sign). Interest in the retail store has grown since the grand opening on May 30, 2019.

"We're seeing week over week growth in the double digits. We're not going to be in the black any time soon - our buildout for the coffee bar and for the store as a whole was more than we'd originally budgeted. We're hopeful that we'll be able further establish a local presence for high quality hemp products coupled with a high level of customer service and education. This alone will help us eventually move into a more positive financial status. We're positive when it comes to our outlook. We know that if we show our customers the absolute best in customer service, keen attention to detail and product education that is second-to-none, we'll build a loyal base which also be a healthier customer base." Mary Carter

Both David and Mary have spent the past two years building on a base of education regarding holistic health and herbal remedies. While they are aware of many non-hemp herbal solutions, they're concentrating on the use of CBD and Hemp as a healthy alternative to pharmaceuticals and in some cases, surgeries.

The flagship store of the Carolina Hemp Hut is located at 137 Mayo Street in the Hillsborough Commons Shopping Center in Hillsborough, NC. They're currently open 6 days a week (Mon-Sat) from 10am to 7pm.

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.

Live in Florida? Hand over your CBD.

Are you looking to buy CBD in Floriday? Fla law forbids Cannabinoids

Cannabis products, even CBD, are considered illegal still in Florida

Even with the passage of the recent Farm Bill, the Florida State laws prohibit the sale of cannabis products - including CBD which is derived from the Hemp Plant much like old fashioned marijuana. Although CBD products do not provide the psychoactive components in large quantities, State bureaucrats are wont to not bend when it comes to hemp.

Unless citizens of Florida take a stand and make their opinions known clearly, CBD and Hemp Shops throughout the Sunshine State may face the dire situation of being forced to remove their products from store shelves.

Well, CBD is actually LEGAL in Florida. But this all depends on what sources you consider for your legal stance. Nonetheless, if you're in Florida, as in quite a few other States, CBD, which should be legal, is in murky waters. The US Farm Bill made things more of "Legal-ish" for most. Since States' rights are the big factor here, citizens of all states (even those allowing legal access to CBD and other hemp-derived components) should maintain their vigilance and action to support laws which allow for natural items, such as hemp and its components, to be under far less regulation.

What are your thoughts on CBD in your State?

Yes, We’re the Hemp Store in the Triangle Area

where to buy cbd oil in durham nc

When you're Looking for CBD Oil in the Triangle, Give us a call!

Before the first Carolina Hemp Hut was opened in the Streets at Southpoint Mall, and before Hemp Oil Rockstar opened the online store for high quality CBD and Full Spectrum Hemp Oil extract, Mary Lòpez Carter was spending quite a lot of effort building a case in support of good health and stronger immune system function. Because of a family illness, she made it a crusade to find the best natural solutions to help fight cancer. The surgical procedures had already been used. What was left was a big question mark. "Will the cancer come back?"

Mary had a very clear WHY and has used that to drive her mission forward. The team at Carolina Hemp Huts and Hemp Oil Rockstar (plus the other entities being created by the drive to help people) has embraced the goal of helping people find more natural solutions to feeling better and living a better life.

When a customer searches in Google and types something like "CBD Oil Near Me", we know that the search engine will typically return results that may show a hemp retailer at a gas station, or a tobacco shop. Have you considered that if you're looking for a "hemp store near me" you may be getting inferior product for more money when it comes to treating your health at a gas station?

We're not trying to knock gas stations. They're great locations to fill up your vehicles with fuel. But, are the convenience stores staffed with people who've taken the time to understand the differences between Isolates and Full Spectrum when it comes to discussing CBD Oil with you?

 

Buying CBD in Durham, North Carolina

We've learned a lot in our time since opening the Southpoint location. We understand that there are CBD and Hemp Oil sales coming from many locations. Some people buy their "Hemp Oil Extract" products from Amazon (these are NOT permitted to show any content for CBD or cannabidiol). Some people buy their CBD from Tobacco shops (in all cases we researched, we found higher prices for comparable products at these locations). Wherever people buy, we hope that they are able to not only get solid answers to all of their questions, but they're able to get great products.

If you're going to head out this week and be in search of the best hemp store Chapel Hill or Hillsborough or Durham, we hope your searches lead you to Carolina Hemp Hut or Hemp Oil Rockstar.  We will be switching out our Southpoint location to a special retail table once a month and shifting our inventory to our new Hillsborough location near Planet Fitness. As we continue our growth, we're going to be opening in North Durham and two other Triangle area locations. If you're in a hurry for your CBD fix, give us a call and we'll work to get your order expedited.

Keep in mind, if you're looking for CBD Oil in Durham or Raleigh or anywhere in the area, take a moment to do some research. Give us a call if you have questions as well. Even if you don't purchase from Hemp Oil Rockstar or Carolina Hemp Huts, get informed on the products which you're seeking. We're happy to help!

Is Your Dog Anxious?

Dosing CBD for Your Pet (Dog) can be easier than you expected

Your Dog may be Anxious

There are a number of well established studies and research evidence (as well as numerous anecdotal accounts) which suggest that your family pet would benefit in various ways with the administration of CBD (cannabidiol) in their diet. From our own experimentation, however unscientific, we've discovered that our elderly shih tzu has become more energetic and able to run more (she has been diagnosed with joint issues) since she's been taking small doses from a 250mg bottle of Pet-specific Full Spectrum Cannabinoids from North Carolina hemp oil extract company, Root Science.

We also know that dogs don't lie to us about their health in the same way that humans may. There's a term often applied "placebo effect". When we administer doses of Hemp Oil Extract to our treasured pups, we see them respond positively in just a matter of hours or sooner (as we have discovered on July 4, Independence Day).

If you have a nervous pet who doesn't stay calm during thunderstorms or other loud events, consider trying CBD or a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Extract. If you try one of the great offerings we have or another, and you find that your pet responds positively to the treatment, please consider leaving a comment on our site. We'd love to know more about our customers and readers and their successes.

We found a great reference to underscore the information we have included in this article. If you have any pets, it's a good idea to do moderate research into methods which you may employ to help improve their health. We also provide calculators and other information on dogs in various articles we've published before.

Super Bowl Ad for Cannabis to Fight Pain and Seizures BANNED

Most people are aware of the impact of the ads found during the televised coverage of the Super Bowls. Vendors and advertisers scramble to compete to get their video ads on the telecast so their target audience can learn more. Well, this goes for cannabis related companies too. But, like other companies who have tried to get Super Bowl ads approved, cannabis companies struck out (wrong metaphor for football here).

Take a quick look at this rejected ad from Acreage Cannabis comment on this post. What do you think? Should Acreage Cannabis  have been allowed to televise this ad? Or, should all things cannabis, even CBD and related supplements, be banned or hidden from the public?
