We see people at the gym, working out. People take walks or jog. Many people have New Years’ Resolutions to be healthier. You know the drill.
How many of you have failed to stay healthy DESPITE these thoughts or even actions?
Who is Behind The Carolina Hemp Hut?
I’m Mary Lòpez Carter. I’m a Realtor® in North Carolina, a small business owner, and a Hemp Oil advocate.
My story with good health stems from an incident involving my husband, David. He has had multiple surgeries to combat recurring cancer within his Brain. After his surgery nearly a decade ago, I started researching methods to abate or eliminate the cancer from returning. I discovered two key items: Medical Marijuana and CBD Oil. Both were illegal in North Carolina (where I live) when I was initially researching. About two years ago, I ran into someone at a networking event who assured me that CBD Oil was now legal AND it’s been shown to provide benefits to cancer victims.
My eyes were opened. I did more research – far more research – into Medical Marijuana (still not legal in NC) and CBD Oil. I got excited after I found medical journals (yes, from Doctors and Researchers!) where case after case was documented. Cases of patients beating cancer.
My research further led me to discover a TREMENDOUS number of other ailments that have been addressed (the big on is “reduce discomfort”) by the introduction of CBD Oil.
Let’s take a quick glance at a select list of ailments CBD has been used to address:
Vomiting & Nausea
Lower Back Pain
High Blood Sugar
I didn’t stop my research there. I continued to delve into various aspects and treatments using CBD Oil. I learned about dosing, clinical trials, full spectrum, isolates, and so much more. When the NoCo event (Northern Colorado Hemp Expo) was announced, I bought tickets to attend and learn about non-THC (not pot, but hemp) products from hemp. I was AMAZED!
I ended up making a lot of contacts in Colorado and with people from other States (such as my own, NC)! I took back to NC a cornucopia of samples and products which I either bought in CO at the Expo or was given. When I returned to NC, I pulled together a group of people who I knew each suffered from some form of ailment.
I distributed the products to these people and expected each to provide a detailed summary report of their experiences. What I discovered led me to where I am today.
I build a small list of products which were BOTH effective and affordable. This was important to me since I knew that many people WANT to experience the benefits of CBD Oils (hemp oil) but couldn’t afford the doses. I knew that some people, especially those on a fixed income with insurance, likely couldn’t afford to buy Hemp Oil if it was expensive. This is because they may already have to pay insurance and the insurance doesn’t cover CBD.
I came up with the best solution for them: Brands of CBD Products from suppliers which have exceptional products that are affordable. My first product line chosen was from Nature’s Love.
Nature’s Love offered a super-affordable 1 oz bottle with 500mg of CBD for only $40. This was just right for people who don’t want to spend more than $40 a month for health issues. A typical bottle (1 oz) of the Nature’s Love CBD/Hemp Oil Extract would last for a full month. Of course, this depends on each individual’s dosing habits.
We looked at brands such as Charlotte’s Web also. These provided great results for users and good quality but the affordability factor was not in line with our needs. We also found horrible brands (such as Star CBD) which were SUPER expensive CBD Isolates (not full spectrum) that hooked people into expensive scam programs for much higher than people expected. (Note, Star CBD may cost $5 to get shipped, but they charge you LOTS more since they have your Credit Card info!)
I’d also tried using (and selling) a brand called Prime My Body.
I actually thought the Prime My Body product was pretty reliable. All of my friends who tried it liked it too. The big problem: It was super expensive AND it was a MLM. I’m not a bit MLM fan myself. Plus, I had issues dealing with the corporate entity. So, I kept looking.
I’m still looking at a bunch of products every month. I speak with growers (I’m licensed to grow Hemp in NC and as a Realtor®, I work with people who look to expand in NC farming). I’m hoping to find the best set of products to offer in my stores so that I am able to keep things very affordable for my customers WHILE ensuring that they are getting high quality products.
This is why I only offer products which have details of their certified testing available. I make offer Organic hemp oil for the customers who want to remain as Organic as possible. I also offer products which are Vegan and Cruelty free.
My husband is still taking CBD Oil daily. He’s still Cancer-free and he’s still getting his MRIs and tests to keep aware. We’re all sleeping better with Hemp Oil and bouncing back from stress far easier than ever. We’re advocate, for sure!
We underscore the importance of customer service. We want people to be happy AND healthy. We hope you’re able to experience this too!
All in all, I’m appreciative of what I’ve discovered with hemp oil and CBD. I don’t need to Sell it to help people. I’m hoping to educate people so they make SMART decisions to benefit their health. Join me. Let’s make America healthier!
