One-stop CBD Store Opens in Downtown El Dorado

CBD-store-opens-El-Dorado

After the three-year legalization of medical marijuana in Arkansas, long-time cannabis activist Michael Cary opens his CBD franchise at a prime location in downtown El Dorado.

Cary opened his first enterprise in a shopping center located at Madison Avenue and Fifth Street in 2002, naming it At Ease Licensed Massage Therapy Clinic. It was during these years when medical marijuana made an early buzz across the US.

In 1996, medical cannabis became legal in California and was followed by seven other states in 2002, advancing the popularity of medical marijuana.

How it started

Cary suffered from a form of epilepsy back in the late 90s, taking 29 pills daily as part of his drug regimen to treat aphasic seizures. He made the switch from pharmaceuticals to cannabis after reading reports that the substance is shown to treat symptoms of epilepsy.

As a Nazarene minister’s grandchild, Cary didn’t want to live life taking medication like Lorazepam and Klonazapam, especially since he was in college at that time. Cannabis had become his primary treatment until 2000.

Cary has been a cannabis advocate ever since he started his journey as a business owner. He moved to gather signatures for the legalization of medical marijuana through Arkansas for Compassionate Care Campaign in 2011. While it failed to pass that year, Cary refused to give up. He joined the Drug Policy Education Group that advocates the reform of drug policies in the state, which was also the organization that helped marijuana to be legalized eventually in 2016.

Cary now serves as the Arkansans for Cannabis Reform vice president. It is a committee made by DPEG to push two new cannabis-related initiatives the group wishes to include in the 2020 ballot. Cary said that the two initiatives would help eliminate ambiguity in cannabis laws.

The proposed initiatives

The Arkansas Marijuana Legalization Initiative, or Adult-Use Cannabis Amendment as it’s also known, targets the authorization of recreational marijuana to adults over 21 years old. It proposes procedures and rules for the regulation of marijuana cultivation and sale. Also included are guidelines for the allowable volume of cannabis in possession, and tax revenue issuance from the sale to school programs from the pre-kindergarten level and the University of Medical Sciences.

Cary believes that this initiative will ease the burden on law enforcers relating to the incarceration of marijuana cases, which uses up a lot of police funds.

The second proposal, Arkansas Marijuana Expungement Initiative, moves to allow individuals charged with a minor marijuana-related offense like possession or sale of not more than one pound of cannabis to make a petition for expungement on the record. The initiative includes measures relating to the restoration of voting rights, reduction of sentence, release from incarceration and expungement of a conviction. It also drafts the Cannabis Conviction Relief Court.

Expanding to CBD

After advocating medical marijuana for years, Cary expanded his enterprise to include several cannabidiol products that he found to help clients who suffer from pain and tension.

CBD or cannabidiol is a compound derived from cannabis but does not cause the high associated with tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. The Arkansas law only allows CBD with no more than 0.3% of THC.

Cary offered topical treatments and homemade lotions incorporated with CBD at the start, which later drew waves, enabling him to open a second franchise called At Ease Essentials, which is a Mellor Park Mall kiosk. Fulfilling a need for quality CBD items is what drove Cary to establish the second At Ease. He also stated that consumers need to check for things like a Certificate of Analysis and labels when buying CBD products.

This year, Cary’s new store will serve as the El Dorado headquarters for his brand, At Ease. The storefront is located at 209 Main Street and will be a welcome addition to the other storefront on Jackson Street in Magnolia. The new store has its fulfillment center for orders made online, and as well as a showroom, laboratory, and a massage clinic using CBD products.

Cary is also eyeing to build more storefronts in Texarkana, Texas, and Ruston, Louisiana. The At Ease products will be sold to adults over 18 years old only, but minors are welcome to go inside the stores. He reckons that the El Dorado store could have been a hemp-selling establishment back in 1927 when the crop was still legal for sale until 1937.

Jobless During CoViD-19 Crisis? Don’t Worry! Cannabis Herald’s Hiring Product Reviewers

mm

Published

on

Even as governments relax the lockdown restrictions the world over, the global economy and livelihoods of people have already taken a turn for the worse. No matter whether you’re a top-ranking corporate official or a grassroots-level sales rep, you may find yourself in a Catch-22 situation.

While most companies and government departments are forced to downsize their teams, a large number of job seekers are undergoing hapless times, desperate to find alternative avenues to make ends meet.

The situation may seem hopeless – fast turning to grim – but it’s not all that gloomy everywhere.

In fact, there are still some Good Tidings for a chosen few, i.e. only if you love and understand cannabis the way we do!

Yes, you’ve heard that right!

Some cannabis products that are legal sell pretty well and so do everything relating to them! And that’s why a handful of companies in this industry are still hiring. One of them is the Cannabis Herald.

The Cannabis Herald, which is a well-known name in the cannabis world, is looking for ‘canna-be’s, who not only love and enjoy the benefits of cannabis, but also know quite a bit about it, its many facets, legalities, and brands, and can shed light on them to help others who can benefit from cannabis.

We, at the Cannabis Herald, are looking for those who love to research, confirm and verify facts and data, as well as try out products from different cannabis brands.

You’ll, of course, get paid handsomely for it! Add to that the fact that you don’t even have to step outside your home! You can work remotely – from the comfort of your own home!

It definitely sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Well, don’t get too confident! It’s still hard work…and we don’t just hire everybody who loves to smoke marijuana or vape CBD!

This resource portal is hiring people who can give their critical and unbiased opinion on different brands of products and their aspects through the written words as well as…wait for it…talk about – on video!

Do you think you can do that?

If you think you’re up for it, remember, we not only need you to be able to detect and eliminate the bad sheep from the market, but also openly elaborate on them – through your blogs, vlogs, articles, and product reviews – without any bias!

To better understand the positions that are being offered, read on to see if you qualify for them.

Qualifications & Preconditions of the Positions

  • The science behind it all

Note: To work with us, you MUST be:

  • A Legal Resident of The United States of America, Canada, or Europe (where medical marijuana and CBD are legal)
  • 18 years or older (We aren’t gender-biased, but we take the legalities seriously!)

FABCBD Offers Spring Sale with Proceeds to Benefit Feeding America

mm

Published

on

FAB CBD Feeding America

FABCBD, a CBD company from Tampa, Florida, offers a sitewide Spring Sale. All products can have up to 25% off on its products from 4/20 to 4/25. This year’s sale is extra special as the company decides to donate a dollar for every purchase made on the website this week. Each $1 donation amounts to six meals served through the beneficiary for this year’s Spring Sale, Feeding America.

The company aims to gather a $10,000 donation, which is equivalent to 60,000 meals for Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief institution in the US. It is especially significant today as job disruptions, school closures, and health risks brought about by the coronavirus pandemic create a dire need for more support in the food banks sector.

The coupon code for the Spring Sale offer is APRIL25, which shoppers can claim right off the website.

About FABCBD

FABCBD is a relatively new player in the cannabidiol market, setting foot within the CBD community throughout 2018. This American CBD company is located in Tampa, Florida, aiming to pioneer a preventative wellness lifestyle for the people.

The company has highlighted its mission to do good by people through partnerships with different nonprofit organizations like Make-A-Wish and lately, the Feeding America network.

FABCBD currently only produces three cannabidiol products, namely its CBD oil, chewable CBD edibles, and topical CBD cream. All of its inventory is sourced from Colorado-grown organic hemp plants. It boats non-GMO, pesticide-free, vegan blend products that are lab-tested and incorporated with botanical terpenes.

The company remains transparent in its formulation, dedicating a separate page for its laboratory reports concerning the different products being sold in their store. The tests are delivered by ProVerde Laboratories, a third-party analytical testing lab catering to the CBD industry.

Every CBD Oil Drops is contained in a 1 oz. Bottle, but the amount of CBD varies per milligram of the preparation. For instance, a 300mg CBD Oil has 5 milligrams of cannabidiol per 0.5 ml, while a 1,200-milligram bottle contains 20 milligrams of cannabidiol per 0.5 ml. There is a higher concentration for bottles with higher milligrams of CBD.

The carrier oil used by FABCBD’s products is the MCT Oil produced from coconuts. The company uses solvent-free CO2 extraction, ensuring that the products are high-quality and undergo an efficient process right from production to sale.

Entourage Effect

FABCBD infuses terpenes and minor cannabinoids, which makes it a Full Spectrum variety. When CBD is combined with such substances, an “entourage effect” is elicited. The entourage effect has a synergistic outcome that boosts the overall benefits of cannabidiol, with some compounds helping to absorb the substance faster.

However, the effects will vary from one person to another. It is, therefore, advisable for users to find out which product suits them best.

Every topical cream and oil drops on FABCBD’s shop are Full Spectrum and contains no more than the legal tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) limit of less than 0.3%. THC is the cannabinoid compound responsible for the psychoactive effects, or the high, that users experience when taking marijuana. Cannabidiol is known to be legal for consumption since it does not have the same impact as its cousin substance. However, the company warns that it cannot guarantee negative drug test results, because CBD can metabolize in a person’s body that may cause a false positive.

The company notes that the Chews contain CBD isolate compared to the CBD oil’s full spectrum formulation. It means that the chewable preparations are free of THC.

Brief on Feeding America

FABCBD’s chosen nonprofit organization, Feeding America, is the country’s largest domestic hunger-relief group. As such, it provides food banks across the nation and responds to national emergencies and disasters.

The organization recently launched its COVID-19 Response Fund, which aims to fundraise for people who are vulnerable in the crisis, facing hunger during this time. It is also working with the US Government to support federal nutrition programs, which includes the School Lunch Program.

Feeding America offers a safe distribution of food, household, and non-food items such as personal care products, diapers, and cleaning supplies to the most in-need members of the community. It commits its platforms, resources, and political will to impact people who need assistance, especially in addressing hunger.
