At the beginning of this month I started at Discover CBD as a skeptic. I did not believe in “Medical Cannabis” or the wonders of CBD. However, after a month of customers telling me their CBD stories and the ways that CBD has helped them, I became a firm believer. I wanted to write my first blog post with the company about the changes I experienced in my beliefs about using hemp based CBD, and the struggles this industry faces while trying to provide relief for its customers.
I recently moved to Colorado Springs from a small town outside of Nashville, Tennessee. The south is obviously behind the bell curve on legalization of medical Cannabis. Even though what we do here at Discover CBD is within the legal realm, the entire CBD industry toes the line. I am not sure what I expected when I moved here regarding the cannabis industry, however what I didn’t expect was medical Cannabis actually working for people and providing relief for their ailments. Before moving to Colorado Springs, medical cannabis was a farce to me. I assumed that people who advocated for medical cannabis were stoners, and were only fighting for the right to get high legally.
My first few days in the store were busy with learning scientific words, and phrases to help explain the endocannabinoid system. What a cannabinoid really was in the first place. There were certain times that everyone seemed to slow down though, like when a customer is telling us about the success they have found using CBD for their health issues. Every day I have people telling me about how much happier, and active they are after trying CBD oil.
Cannabis is still illegal federally and worldwide as well. Hemp derived products are covered under the Farmers Protection Act of 2014 so we can ship state to state. But that still doesn’t help the stigma that has been created regarding CBD, and medical cannabis. Every day I answer questions regarding the legality of this business across the country. Even processing credit cards through our website is a painful process for our customers and for us but we have to deal with it because of the industry we operate in. All the hoops we have to jump through is worth it for our customers who are usually in pain and looking for any kind of relief they can find.
Our company is growing fast. I cannot wait to see what this business will grow into. Purchasing through this company ensures that you are going to experience a level of service you will not receive from another online retailer or storefront. We want our customers to do their research on CBD products, and shop for the best prices because we know that all the research leads back to us. We are in this to help people find the relief they deserve. We are committed to providing the customer service you deserve.
