Your CBD Store® Hilton Head- Get healthy, not high: Natural hemp products a hot new commodity

Author: Linda S. Hopkins

Not long ago, most people would not have recognized the acronym “CBD,” nor would they have had the slightest clue what it was.

Today, CBD is one of the hottest buzz words and possibly one of the most misunderstood new products to hit the health scene in the past decade. Often confused with its cousin THC, while both are derived from the cannabis plant, CBD is intended to be used as an herbal health supplement. Before you ask, yes, it’s legal and is available locally, without a prescription, at Your CBD Store, the first and only dedicated CBD source on Hilton Head Island.

It is not psychoactive in the same way as THC, local franchise owner Jessica Rollins explained. “I still get calls from people who think it’s marijuana. It comes from the hemp plant, not the marijuana plant. The THC is completely extracted, and the chemical composition is different than the cannabinoid responsible for the high that many people associate with marijuana.”

After managing Your CBD Store franchises in Augusta, Georgia and Lexington, South Carolina, Rollins was inspired to bring the service here to the Lowcountry, where the demographic is on point. (Most of her customers are 55 and older, she said, and you must be 18 years old to purchase.) In business since late November 2018, Your CBD Store Hilton Head offers products to help with a variety of ailments that may be preventing you from living your best life. While you will want to consult your doctor before discontinuing any prescribed medical treatment, CBD is a natural alternative to pharmaceutical medications for a number of chronic conditions. Some of the known benefits include reducing inflammation, relieving pain, and easing anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

CBD can be delivered into the body in several ways. “The most effective way is to ingest them,” Rollins said. “And the very best way is to get it in your body and on your body, especially for pain.”

Products come in various forms and dosages to meet each customer’s needs and preferences. You can choose from water-soluble products, edibles, sublingual tinctures, soft gels, vaping e-liquids, and topical applications. “We even have tinctures and CBD treats for pets, because they suffer from some of the same discomforts we do,” Rollins said.

People are often curious about the taste, and Rollins offers samples. Fast-acting water-soluble products come in natural (with no added flavorings—often described as an earthy taste) or with all-natural organic flavorings including piña colada, grape, and strawberry-lime. The oils come in mint, orange and lemon flavors, she said. Additional edible products include gummies and hard candies—all natural/vegan—which taste remarkably similar to comparable treats but with the extra benefit of CBD.

When choosing CBD products, quality is of utmost importance, Rollins said. Hers are broad spectrum CBD, which means other beneficial cannabinoids are present for more synergistic effects. Hint: You are not likely to get immediate results, she explained. Most customers find that consistent use over a period of two weeks to a month yields best and most effective results. It may also take time to determine the ideal dosage for you, based on your weight, metabolism and the condition you are seeking to improve.
The good news is you can’t overdose.

Your CBD Store has a clean, relaxing, spa-like vibe, and a friendly, well-educated staff. Rollins invites you to come in and explore the world of CBD. She’s there to answer your questions and guide you to the products that will best serve your individual needs.

Your CBD Store is located at 1012 William Hilton Parkway (next to Panera Bread) on Hilton Head Island. For more information, visit https://cbdrx4u.com/find-us/south-carolina/hilton-head, follow on Facebook, or call (843) 802-4422.
