In states like Idaho where marijuana is still not legal, people have the ability to drive out of town to neighboring states to purchase CBD products or even order some of them online. CBD has proven to have many health benefits including relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, and seizures, to name a few, and does so without the “stoned” effect of it’s cannabis sibling, THC. Sadly, though, CBD has still not been approved by the FDA for medical use.
“What we had to do was just find exactly the letter of the law and then make sure we were well in the confines of that,” explained Larsen.
They are working with a processor in California to isolate the CBD oil from industrial hemp stalk. The oil processed from the hemp does not contain THC, the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana.
“At the federal level, you’re allowed to have up to .3 percent THC in the CBD oil. Here in Idaho, we aren’t allowed to have any T.H.C,” explained Larsen.
They hope to open their doors for business in the next few weeks. They plan to offer a wide variety of products including CBD oils, infused water, and even, CBD treats for your pets.
