The First CBD Oriented Kiosk will open in North Carolina at the Streets of Southpoint Mall
Southpoint Mall, Durham, NC A shop known as The Carolina Hemp Hut that specializes in one of the active components in cannabis, but not the one that gets you high, will open at The Streets at Southpoint Mall as a Kiosk. The Hemp Oil Rockstar, also known as Mary Lòpez Carter, a local Realtor®, will open a kiosk near the Nordstrom’s and JC Penney stores at the mall. The shop’s grand opening will be held Saturday, October 27.
Cannabidiol, or CBD as it is often shortened, is a chemical compound derived from the cannabis plant often produced by licensed Industrial Hemp growers and processors. The oil from the extract, also known as hemp oil, does not produce a psychoactive high like marijuana does. The active ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The legal limit of THC in any NC CBD store item is a maximum of .3% total THC.
Holistic health advocates claim there are many health benefits of using CBD. Such benefits may include abatement of some pain, reduction of inflammation, improved sleep plus anxiety relief among other claimed benefits. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated any of the claims of the benefits of using CBD.
Carter is a practicing Realtor® in the Triangle area and the co-owner of a regional Marketing company, Ideas Envy LLC.
The Grand Opening will feature specials on CBD Gummies and other edibles for adults. In addition, all customers will receive discount cards for future purchases.
Ms. Carter has long advocated for acceptance of CBD as an alternative to conventional drugs since her husband, David, was diagnosed with a recurring brain tumor. “CBD has been shown in scientific and medical journals as effective against many types of cancer and adverse health conditions. I’m glad the US Farm Bill allowed for further acceptance of Hemp and its non-psychoactive products.”
