Your CBD Store Dawsonville became the first-ever store in Dawson County to sell CBD-containing products when it opened last Friday, September 20. The store put various CBD products on display like oils, tinctures, topical creams, and water solubles, which they promise are some of the best in the market today.
Offering CBD Products to the Public
Jaime Buice, Your CBD Store general manager, stated that the incidence of getting high from their various products is highly unlikely. He reiterated that their products do not possess any psychoactive property and thus does not cause an addicting high.
He further said that customers come to their store to seek help for many different health conditions. Whether it is to focus more like in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attention deficit disorder (ADD), or problems in arthritis or inflammation, people are always looking for a cure to their problems.
The store sells various products like water-soluble CBD oil taken with water, topical creams for inflammation and pain, and tinctures applied by placing a few drops under a user’s tongue.
More About CBD
CBD or cannabidiol, for all its fame, is still misconceived by many individuals today. It is an active compound in the hemp variety of Cannabis sativa L., the same source plant species as marijuana, an addictive and still largely illegal substance.
This simple fact is the reason for the confusion between CBD extracted from industrial hemp and those that are from marijuana.
Industrial hemp is taxonomically similar to marijuana, yet different in a major way. Hemp only has less than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC by dry weight. THC is the culprit for marijuana’s psychotropic properties, which causes the “high” commonly experienced by a marijuana user.
On the other hand, marijuana contains a high THC level of 5-20% by dry weight.
Most CBD oils are produced to have only trace amounts of THC or none of it at all.
It is legal under federal law to sell, produce, and use CBD oil derived from the hemp variety. The 2018 Farm Bill recognizes the lawfulness of hemp and its derived products and is the basis for updates on state laws concerning the said substance.
CBD Laws in Georgia
There are specific circumstances that dictate the state of CBD laws in Georgia, which Your CBD Store Dawsonville and other CBD companies have to respect. For instance, their stipulations use the term low-THC oil instead of CBD oil.
Haleigh’s Hope Act or the House Bill 1 of 2015 permit access to CBD oil for residents who are suffering from severe health conditions like cancer or epilepsy. It also grants universities the privilege to conduct studies on CBD that aim to alleviate child seizure disorders. The condition is that the CBD-containing product must not have more than 5% THC content.
Anyone who wants to purchase low-THC oil in Georgia must have an identification card proving that they are in the registry. Other than epilepsy, CBD is also believed to treat other illnesses such as inflammation, arthritis and even anxiety.
