A variety of CBD products that many people say can help with chronic pain or other medical issues are available at recently opened Marysville business New World Distributors.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a component of marijuana, however it doesn’t cause the high typically associated with cannabis, which is instead caused by THC.
The Marysville store at 9109 State Ave., carries a number of products with CBD, but none with THC.
Many of the medical purposes that marijuana is used for are provided by CBD.
“There’s a wide range of conditions that it helps with,” said owner David Day, which include chronic pain, anxiety, Chrohn’s disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, antibiotic-resistant infections and other problems.
“It’s to each his own, and everybody can find out what benefits it has for the individual,” said Day.
Day has information pamphlets at the store with more information about CBD and the potential benefits of the compound.
There are a broad range of ways to take the CBD.
“We have a full health and wellness line, from sprays to rubs and roll-ons,” said Day.
Oils and tinctures are also available to apply the CBD. Their CBD honey has been very popular and is often sold out, said Day.
They also have a skin care product line with moisturizing cream, facial cleansers, anti-aging creams and other products.
“The skin care products affect the skin receptors that the oil and CBD penetrates and works with,” said Day.
A variety pack for those who want to sample the products is also at the store.
“We have an assortment pack that kind of gives people a full spectrum of what products are available,” said Day.
“We also carry a great line of dog treats, like the infused pet line with three different flavors,” he said.
There are still some more types of products that Day is planning to bring to the store as well, including a hemp capsule.
The Marysville store has been open for three weeks now.
“It’s been excellent. We’ve had a great response from the community,” he said.
“It’s been a challenge, but it’s been rewarding to see what kind of people come in and what kind of people return,” he said.
The current plan is to open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, although Day admits that he is still trying to figure out exactly how to schedule the hours.
“I’m still figuring out what works best,” he said.
Day is a long-time Marysville resident and said he is happy to open a business that he feels can help a lot of people in the community.
“It’s great to be accepted into the community. It took so long and there is a need in the community for this product, not just for the older folks but the younger folks,” he said.
