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.

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.

"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.

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.

Hemp Day Video: Neuropathic Pain? Acne? Inflammation?

Pain due to sports injury

Do you have Aches and Pain?

Hemp Oil has been found to be effective in helping reduce discomfort due to neuropathic and other issues which may cause discomfort. Whether you had a car accident or an injury, a topical application of hemp oil combined with normal hemp oil extract dosing (sublingual) may boost your healing time and help you feel better.

THC and CBD – Cannabidiols

While there’s been a wealth of information supporting THC (which is the psychoactive ingredient in Hemp) and pain reductions, there’s been some medical studies involving CBD as well. While the studies regarding CBD are more limited in the positive conclusions supporting reduction in neuropathic pain, the studies with THC have been slightly more conclusive – but they both still require additional studies. There are practitioners who speak out in support of CBD and other cannabidiols being used to address neuropathic pain.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2755639/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2950178/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5549367/

What about Inflammation and Acne?

While the jury may still be tied up in the case of high impact of CBD with neuropathic cases, it has more evidence in support of CBD in hemp oil for issues such as inflammation and acne. Studies have shown varying success with the use of Cannibidiols (CBD namely) topically and orally with patients with moderate to severe acne.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4151231/

In case of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), studies in mice and rats showed reduced amyloid beta neuroinflammation after CBD treatment. Additionally, other forms of inflammation have been shown in more studies to be reduced or practically eliminated with the introduction of CBD. Researchers are continuing with more of their studies. Chronic applications of CBD will provide more detailed results for the researchers to provide more of a basis for conclusions.

This link provides one of the most interesting “reads” on the uses of CBD in various applications. It may be a hefty document for some, but it is informative!

Choosing The Best Hemp Oil

I’ve often told the story about how I selected the best hemp oil extract for my retail stores. There truly are a lot of hemp oils available on the market. Some are horrible and really a waste of money and others are super-premium all around.

The three questions I used within the Hemp Day video are just three of the many questions and qualifiers that I followed when it came to deciding on the best product mix. I’ll likely make a full video of the process I followed. In the interim, be sure to check out all of my Hemp Day Videos and come in to the Streets at Southpoint Mall and visit with us at our Store Kiosk, “The Carolina Hemp Hut”.

A urinary test procedure for identification of cannabidiol in patients undergoing medical therapy with marijuana

Marijuana is classified by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as Schedule I, drugs having no accepted medical value. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. This conflict inhibits physicians from prescribing marijuana and the systematic study of marijuana in medical care. This study concerns the use of the clinical laboratory as a resource for physicians recommending cannabidiol (CBD) to patients, or for patients using medical marijuana. Marijuana containing delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive.

However, CBD is not psychoactive. CBD is reported to have medical benefit for seizure control, neurologic disorders including multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain and pain associated with cancer.

It was revealed that the studies DID SHOW that CBD with trace THC can caused positives even though the user is taking CBD legally and the THC within that Hemp Oil is well within the legal limits of .3%. This information may be rendered moot should President Donald Trump sign into law a passed Farm Bill (2018) which includes the intact amendment from Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). More on this topic will be reported by the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar.

For more information on the government report covering the outcomes of the testing, visit here.
