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

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.

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.

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]
[siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Video”][/siteorigin_widget]

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.

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

"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.

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).

Do You Really know the STRENGTH of your CBD Oil? (CBD Oil Mini Review)

Certificate of Analysis: CBD Hemp Oil Water Soluble 500mg

Your Bottle reads “500mg”, right? What does this mean? Does it mean that the bottle actually contains 500 mg of CBD? Is it just 500 mg of true hemp oil extract combined with MCT Oil? What is that strength of YOUR hemp oil? David Pratt Carter guest presents for Mary Lopez Carter in today’s Hemp Day Video.

This video covers three common hemp oil extract products and shows their “hemp oil calculations” based upon their supplement facts found on each of their products.

Many people do not know the strength of the hemp oil extract they are taking. Further, people may not realize the COST PER Milligram of the CBD that they are taking.

It’s true that hemp oils all have subtle or wildly different tastes. When you ignore taste and look only at the strength of the hemp oil based upon the amount of CBD and the other “entourage” of cannabinoids, then you’re able to get a better baseline comparison of products.

We’re not covering Charlotte’s Web or Koi in this video but we may in a future video. There are some amazing and effective CBD products on the market so we’re not going to bash any products that you may be using. We’re covering the strengths of several products and showing the cost per milligram.

You may be familiar with some of the products shown. If you find something uncomfortable about what is said, feel free to comment. For example, one product may be your favorite and you may feel that you’re uncomfortable because something may be said which is negative about it. That’s fine. Leave your comment.

We’re giving each product a fair shake and comparing them based upon the information on their products – no hearsay involved. No rumor. Just product information and other facts.

David has also covered “SCAMS” with CBD in two videos: Trial Programs and Brighten/Pure CBD.

WRAL Covers Benefits of CBD Oil

wral covers usage and benefits of CBD

Raleigh, NC News Station Covers North Carolina and CBD

In a recent on air piece (and online), entitle “5 ON YOUR SIDE: What is Cannabidiol? The ABCs OF CBD”, WRAL of Raleigh, NC summarized some of the benefits people seek with the aid of CBD (shortened form of the word cannibidiol). Monica Laliberte, WRAL executive producer/consumer reporter, revealed that many North Carolinians are embracing CBD to help with health conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy and other conditions.

We’re happy to be a leader in the Triangle Area for CBD sales since we opened our Online Store with Hemp Oil Rockstar and our Online and Streets at Southpoint Mall Store, Carolina Hemp Hut.

Mary Lòpez Carter, the founder of Hemp Oil Rockstar and the Carolina Hemp Hut stores, started selling hemp oil products in 2017 after she did copious research into products which would help her husband, David Pratt Carter, beat cancer (he had a malignant intracranial tumor). She discovered the promising impact of CBD on people’s health. She opened Hemp Oil Rockstar online in early 2018. Soon after finding success with Hemp Oil Rockstar, she leaded space at the Streets at Southpoint mall in Durham, NC to establish a more permanent location to help people of the community with better health options. On October 19, 2018, Mary and her team opened Carolina Hemp Hut in the mall (located near the Microsoft Store). Mary and the team continue to educate consumers with information from scientists, researchers and medical professionals on the benefits of hemp oil extracts.

Even though the Federal Laws on CBD are contradictory, Mary vows to continue bringing 100% Farm Bill Compliant (less than .3% THC) products to North Carolinians in her stores.

“I’m essentially a good health activist. I want to make sure that people know what the studies have revealed about CBD and Hemp Products and I educate them on the products that are legally available to them,” said Mary in a recent interview.

Mary Lòpez Carter also produces educational videos for YouTube and Podcasts entitled “Hemp Day” to assist people in making educated choices with CBD products and avoid scams.

Mary Lòpez Carter and her Hemp Oil Rockstar Team wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

CBD can enrich your life. Have a great thanksgiving and amazing Black Friday

Read the Original Mail Post here

Life is about YOU Reaching for More!

I’m thankful for my life and the things I have in it. A recent occurrence really set things into perspective for me and I’m hoping me sharing this with you helps you to appreciate what you have as well.

As you may know, I’ve expanded the Hemp Oil Rockstar branding with our new Carolina Hemp Hut. The first store is in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC. I’ve hired wonderful people to work with me and we’re having a great time. I’m also a very active Realtor® in the Triangle and I’ve been coordinating my limited time at the shop in Durham while I still make sure I have all of my bases covered with my Real Estate clients.

This last week, while I was covering a shift for one of my employees, I was greeted by an unusual customer. He ended up purchasing several items from the shop AND he pocketed my Samsung smart phone as he finished the transaction. I didn’t notice until he was gone and I was closing up the shop.

Making a rather lengthy story shorter, I’ll summarize by revealing I was very upset. I loved that phone. I used if for my Real Estate work all the time. I used it for the Hemp Oil Rockstar work. And, it wasn’t very old.

My husband, David, wanted to be sure I was safe. He didn’t worry about the phone. “We can replace a phone” was what he told me. This was the first step in helping me regain my perspective.Hemp Oil Rockstar gives thanks to the fans and customers who appreciate high quality customer service and CBD Hemp Oil

A good night’s sleep later, I went in to the shop the NEXT morning both energized and full of vigor. I was determined to have the best possible day I could. I wasn’t going to let a negative take me down. I was THANKFUL for my family, I was THANKFUL for the fruits of my hard work (working multiple jobs to make things come together for my family), and I was THANKFUL that all I lost was an (expensive) phone.

Losing the phone meant I was out of communication for a bit. But, my husband had the forethought to have already purchased a replacement phone which already had a SIM card and was fully charged. I had to visit Verizon and get things activated, but I wasn’t down long.

By the time I returned to my shop in the Streets at Southpoint Mall, there was a line at my shop, waiting for me to open!

I was shocked. Yes, I was late opening as I had scheduled myself to be the opener and I also wanted to make sure I took care of my new phone activation so I didn’t miss any Real Estate calls (which I get a lot!) during the day. I was floored that so many people were waiting at my shop!

I ended up selling more CBD and Hemp Oill products in the first hour after opening than I had the entire previous day (when my phone was stolen). I truly believe that my positive outlook on the situation CHANGED my negative experience to a positive outcome.  My determination and intention to have a stellar day manifested in positive rewards DESPITE the bad luck I had.

Despite negative things in your life, you CAN make the best of your LIFE by changing how you REACT to them. Make the BEST of each given moment to the BEST of your ability. You can be THANKFUL and REWARDED more in your life.
I find people at our Mall location to be looking for help. Nearly everyone either has something in their life that is a negative. It could be bad health, it could be an ill relative, it could be work – who knows? Regardless, every one of my wonderful customers has taken the steps to IMPROVE their health when they take the opportunity to try Cannibidiol (CBD) and Hemp Oil Products.

Perhaps they first learned of my Store opening from the newspaper. Perhaps a friend told them to check the web for CBD stores in the area.

Whatever the reason, people are able to take ACTION with their health and make improvements. I want people to be HEALTHIER. I want people to embrace more positives in their lives so they too can be filled with GRATITUDE.

I am THANKFUL that I have a wonderful family who cares about me and strives to help me. I am THANKFUL that I have been blessed with good results when I WORK HARD and DON’T GIVE UP easily.

I wish EVERYONE a HAPPY and THOUGHTFUL Time this Thanksgiving!

Mary Lòpez Carter

Buy CBD from Legitimate and Tested CBD providers, not from Scammers like Brighten CBD and Star CBD

Are you Following the Scammers in the CBD World?

Well, it may not be illegal, but it is unfair: Some companies use Google ads to promote CBD. Those that do this are breaking the rules set by Google. When a company does this, it’s unfair since the marketplace is pretty much empty due to Google’s Rules. When the rules are in place and everyone follows the same set of rules, it creates a balanced marketplace. When a company such as those selling Brighten CBD are cheating, it unbalances the marketplace.

If you consider the 300mg CBD Isolate a bargain at $60 or $50, then you’re in good shape. Watch this video. If you think that a company should be transparent and detail what Organic Certification should be then you should shy away from companies such as Brighten CBD and others that are under the same umbrella of deceit. David Pratt Carter filled in today for Mary Lòpez Carter as she has been preparing for Black Friday deals in her Carolina Hemp Hut store in Durham North Carolina. CBD and Hemp Oil Sales have been going really well for her and she’s not about to stop her good work while she has a trusty stand in for her video.

David researched more on the “scams” with CBD Trials and found that one of the biggest scammers (those behind the names of Star CBD, Brighten CBD and others) are still at their nefarious game. David calls them out by showing what they’re doing to cheat the system and make things unfair to legitimate and likely higher quality CBD and Hemp Oil extract salespeople and retailers across the country. CBD to buy should be pretty straight forward and even keeled. When we find people cheating with the product quality or similar, count on the folks at Hemp Oil Rockstar to speak up.

Hemp Day Video: What is CBD/Hemp Oil Extract?

Mary Lopez Carter Talks about What is CBD Hemp Oil

"I see you have CBD, what is that?"

At our Main retail store for Carolina Hemp Hut (Located in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC), I get a lot of customer queries. One of the most popular questions I get asked is “What is CBD Oil or Hemp Oil?”

I’m happy to answer this question and I hope to dispel some myths about CBD and Hemp Oil.

Note: The new store’s Grand Opening (Oct 27) Celebration is open to all as it is designed to let people know about not only the store, but about what Hemp Oil MAY offer to people. We still operate the website for the store (https://CarolinaHempHut.com) and the main store site at https://hempoilrockstar.com If you’re curious about CBD Oil and #HempOil extracts, then I’m hoping this video will present a primer for you and your friends.

Please, consider sharing this information with family and friends. We have all too many people thinking that CBD or Hemp products are absolutely illegal and this is UNTRUE! Further, with the likely form of the new farm bill (McConnell amendment) and the lean from President Trump, we’re more likely to see a wave of CBD usage across the country.
