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.

Sometimes, it’s just easier to let others talk about CBD

CBD Is natural not man made, don't let FDA take it over for pharma

Some of the most important benefits of cannabis oil include its ability to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, increase appetite and optimize digestion, reduce pain, prevent certain types of cancers, strengthen heart health and protect the skin.

CBD and Cannabinoids are becoming far more popular as the medical community coupled with skilled researchers are finding more plausible ways to employ cannabinoids to aid human (and animal) health. Although some uses of CBD have still been unproven as far as even cursory effectiveness - other applications of Cannabinoids have shown significant positive impact on health.

From time to time, we uncover third party information on CBD and other components of the hemp oil extracts which we will share with our readers. Please feel free to share this article in social media and in other locations (like email to your friends who don't believe that hemp has any health benefits!).

The Beat Goes on: Another of the Same Scam – Beware!

Don't buy from dishonest internet scams. Buy from quality vendors of CBD

ProCanna is not a GOOD Value. NOT AT ALL

I broke down some of the scam-oriented brands in earlier videos. Hemp Oil Extracts can easily get the attention of unsuspecting shoppers because there's a rising interest in Cannabidiol (CBD) and other Hemp Oil Extract products. With the recent passage of the Farm Bill, there is an increase in interest in all things cannabis, especially CBD and related compounds.

At Hemp Oil Rockstar, we scour the internet for products and perform research on many items in hopes of cataloging a nice spectrum of products which may prove to be good choices of consumers. We compare prices, Certificates of Analysis, consumer surveys and more to help assess what products are better than average for consumers of Hemp Oil extract products. In this effort, we often uncover products such as those from less reputable firms.

These firms tend to be 1) Operating out of a UPS Store or PO Box, 2) Not ever in a Bricks and Mortar (real) store, and 3) unable to provide detailed COAs (the analysis) of their products. This often suggests that they may be importing inferior products to sell to the masses in devious ways just to secure a profit. It's a lot like the old "snake oil" salesmen of the past. They're not rolling into town in loaded down wagons and shilling for their nasty oils - they may actually have CBD in them. But, the cost is exorbitant.

In a previous video, I covered a bit about the milligrams of CBD in hemp oil extracts. CBD, being the main cannabinoid, should be prevalent in all of the analysis documents you get with any hemp oil. It should be clear as to the content of CBD and  hopefully other cannabinoids - but this is less likely to see. However, Full or Broad spectrum tends to be the best pair of choices for most consumers from a health perspective. Just to point out a key factor: If you're in transportation or law enforcement or similar, you Don't want a full spectrum as they WILL have trace amounts of THC which may cause you to "pop" in a drug test. This is true even though the legal limit for THC in these CBD products is under .3% of THC.

The video here covers a recent discovery of another from the long list of products produced by the makers of Brighten, Star and many others. This one is called "ProCanna" and they're using a nasty trial technique to separate you from your hard-earned cash. If you have money to burn and don't mind risking the questionable sourcing of their hemp oil extracts, then go for it - you can find them on the internet and NOT in stores (they have no physical stores like Carolina Hemp Huts or other hemp product stores).

Hemp Day Video: Drug Testing could Get you Fired for CBD, Learn what to do First!

Your HR Department may have something to say about CBD

What Can Your HR Department do?

Let's say you're working for Corporate America. No harm there, unless your organization has a habit of doing drug testing. The typical drug test seeks to discover whether you're taking illegal drugs such as Cocaine, Meth, Marijuana and CBD.

Wait, what?

Not really. CBD or Cannibidiol isn't actively targeted in the drug testing in nearly all test kits available. However, most of us know that THC is the targeted "drug" from Hemp or Marijuana. The people who take the time to understand the biology associated with Hemp understand that CBD is NOT the psychoactive component within the Hemp plant.

It's been shown where THC is beneficial to our health. This article isn't to sing the praises of THC, but I suggest that you search within Google or another search engine for benefits of THC from medical publications (use PubMed in the search string).

Mary Lòpez Carter has been advocating for broader acceptance of CBD in the workplace. Because some CBD products contain THC (legal limit of .3% THC), it's possible some drug tests will "pop" for showing THC in your system. Are you a drug user at this point? Not really. You have part of the overall spectrum of cannabinoids in your system. CBD = Good. THC = Bad. According to the law.

As mentioned before, THC has been shown to be beneficial (visit the reports). But if you have it in your system, you could be in dire straights with your employer if you test positive for it - including when your CBD has a very small amount of THC in it. How can you avoid the trouble of CBD (especially the "full spectrum oils which also include THC in trace amounts)?

Proactive Steps for You to Follow

It's Key to Be Proactive.

  1. Speak with your Medical Professional and Get a Note detailing you're taking CBD Oil.
  2. Inform your HR department (great if done in writing, paper trail) and show the Dr. Note.
  3. Buy trusted CBD Oil that may be full spectrum, but offers below the legal limit of .3% THC

In my video, I mentioned a very exciting product coming soon to Hemp Oil Rockstar. It's a No THC Full Spectrum offering. For those of you who are purists in the terminology, you're likely to argue that "No, this is broad spectrum" and you may be correct from your viewpoint. We're glad that there's technology that allows for the full entourage effect without people worrying over whether they will "pop" in drug tests. Be on the look out soon for our Zero THC products at Hemp Oil Rockstar and Carolina Hemp Huts.

Fibromyalgia may be Related to Endocannabinoid Deficiency

On December 1, 2003, Ethan B. Russo, a Senior Medical Advisor at GW Pharmaceuticals submitted a study entitled "Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD): Can this Concept Explain Therapeutic Benefits of Cannabis in Migraine, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other Treatment-Resistant Conditions?" This study examines the concept of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD).

The study reported investigation into the prospect that endocannabinoid deficiency could underlie the pathophysiology of migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and other functional conditions alleviated by clinical cannabis.

With consideration of the issues of migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and other functional conditions many laypersons have already discovered the benefits of taking CBD Oil/Hemp Oil (with CBD and other cannabinoids). While it is not the purpose of this post to detail the linkage between hemp oil and the endocannabinoid system health, we do hope people educate themselves into the possibilities associated with the LEGAL uses of Industrial Hemp and its products such as CBD Oils and Tinctures as sold by stores such as the Carolina Hemp Hut and Hemp Oil Rockstar.

Since women are affected more by Fibromyalgia more than men, it's understandable that more women undertaking a CBD-enriched regimen have encountered improvements in their overall health and a reduction in symptoms associated with the Fibromyalgia. Further, it has been revealed that some of the women studies have become asymptomatic after their endocannabinoid system has been boosted with supplements of CBD and other cannabinoids.

Patients who are prescribed Lyrica, Cymbalta and Savella in addition to other related drugs may face the possibility of side effects as indicated by the FDA requirements of the Pharmaceutical companies. There are still more studies into the usage of CBD for nervous system conditions and the possible associated side effects of cannabinidiol. As of this publication, the list if adverse reactions to CBD is very short and none appear to be life-threatening as those may be for the Pharmaceutical company products.

We all have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system has two major types of cannabinoid receptors: CB1 receptors (primarily found in the brain) and CB2 receptors (primarily found in the immune system) are involved in a variety of physiological processes. The ECS helps regulate functions such as: sleep, immune-system responses, pain, inflammation, mood, and memory and is key in maintaining homeostasis (balance).

Cannabinoids are produced naturally within our bodies, however, when our ECS is under-active and/or you are not receiving sufficient cannabinoids, it predisposes you to a host of symptoms. For thousands of years, humans and animals consumed plants rich in cannabinoids but the eradication of all hemp related plants, by our government, has caused a deficiency of cannabinoids in our diet. Therefore, what little cannabinoids our bodies produce, may not be enough to maintain homeostasis.

Thankfully, many states have farm bills that have now allowed farmers to grow hemp plants and we are now witnessing a new era of health and wellness with the use of hemp extracts.

"Cannabinoids have similarly demonstrated the ability to block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestinal mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, IBS and related disorders. The past and potential clinical utility of cannabis-based medicines in their treatment is discussed, as are further suggestions for experimental investigation of CECD via CSF examination and neuro-imaging. Migraine, fibromyalgia, IBS and related conditions display common clinical, biochemical and pathophysiological patterns that suggest an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency that may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines."
