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.

Yes, We’re the Hemp Store in the Triangle Area

where to buy cbd oil in durham nc

When you're Looking for CBD Oil in the Triangle, Give us a call!

Before the first Carolina Hemp Hut was opened in the Streets at Southpoint Mall, and before Hemp Oil Rockstar opened the online store for high quality CBD and Full Spectrum Hemp Oil extract, Mary Lòpez Carter was spending quite a lot of effort building a case in support of good health and stronger immune system function. Because of a family illness, she made it a crusade to find the best natural solutions to help fight cancer. The surgical procedures had already been used. What was left was a big question mark. “Will the cancer come back?”

Mary had a very clear WHY and has used that to drive her mission forward. The team at Carolina Hemp Huts and Hemp Oil Rockstar (plus the other entities being created by the drive to help people) has embraced the goal of helping people find more natural solutions to feeling better and living a better life.

When a customer searches in Google and types something like “CBD Oil Near Me”, we know that the search engine will typically return results that may show a hemp retailer at a gas station, or a tobacco shop. Have you considered that if you’re looking for a “hemp store near me” you may be getting inferior product for more money when it comes to treating your health at a gas station?

We’re not trying to knock gas stations. They’re great locations to fill up your vehicles with fuel. But, are the convenience stores staffed with people who’ve taken the time to understand the differences between Isolates and Full Spectrum when it comes to discussing CBD Oil with you?

 

Buying CBD in Durham, North Carolina

We’ve learned a lot in our time since opening the Southpoint location. We understand that there are CBD and Hemp Oil sales coming from many locations. Some people buy their “Hemp Oil Extract” products from Amazon (these are NOT permitted to show any content for CBD or cannabidiol). Some people buy their CBD from Tobacco shops (in all cases we researched, we found higher prices for comparable products at these locations). Wherever people buy, we hope that they are able to not only get solid answers to all of their questions, but they’re able to get great products.

If you’re going to head out this week and be in search of the best hemp store Chapel Hill or Hillsborough or Durham, we hope your searches lead you to Carolina Hemp Hut or Hemp Oil Rockstar.  We will be switching out our Southpoint location to a special retail table once a month and shifting our inventory to our new Hillsborough location near Planet Fitness. As we continue our growth, we’re going to be opening in North Durham and two other Triangle area locations. If you’re in a hurry for your CBD fix, give us a call and we’ll work to get your order expedited.

Keep in mind, if you’re looking for CBD Oil in Durham or Raleigh or anywhere in the area, take a moment to do some research. Give us a call if you have questions as well. Even if you don’t purchase from Hemp Oil Rockstar or Carolina Hemp Huts, get informed on the products which you’re seeking. We’re happy to help!

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 Pratt Carter jumps in from time to time to help the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar. He’s a co-founder of Ideas Envy LLC, a North Carolina Marketing and Training company. His wife, Mary Lòpez Carter believes strongly in Hemp Oil products and works to keep David taking CBD.

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.
