New CBD Dispensary On Mountain Ave.
It seems to be a CBD Dispensary & Natural Healing Store. What a nice addition to have a shop like this in town. It appears their other location in Sparta has enjoyed great success. I wish them well!
They are next to Mand's Barber Parlour and Philly Pretzel.
Sounds like Hackettstown is hitting new lows every day
CBD oil is 100% legal. It has no TCH and it can't get you "high". Health stores and even pet stores sell them.
2 stand alone CBD stores are set to open up in town. They are completely different then medical marijuana stores and recreational marijuana stores. Both of which are currently not premitted in town.
The Land Use Board will discuss limiting stand alone CBD oil stores in town at the July meeting. Just as the town has limits on certain other types of stores.
“CBD oil is 100% legal. It has no TCH and it can't get you "high". Health stores and even pet stores sell them.”
Very minimal amount but it does have THC... and you may not get a head high but you will get a body high depending on how you take it
Matilda is correct.
Some facts regarding CBD from their website:
1) DOES IT GET YOU HIGH?
No! It will make you feel uplifted, but it does not interact with your brain in the same way THC does. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high, meaning it prevents THC molecules from binding to the brain's receptors. CBD actually counteracts THC.
2) HOW DOES IT WORK?
While THC directly binds to the CB1 receptor, CBD elevates the endocannabinoids that your body makes to stimulate them instead. It also opens pathways and ion channels to help your brain work at a higher functionality.
3) WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
CBD is commonly used for a multitude of reasons, but the most common are: pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety and seizures.
4) DOES CBD COME FROM MARIJUANA OR HEMP? AND WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO?
Marijuana and hemp are two very different varieties of the cannabis plant. In general, CBD is found abundantly in both. However it is important to note that CBD is typically found in the seeds and stems of marijuana- not in the flowering buds. The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD through the entire plant- with practically zero traces of THC. Every product in our store comes from industrial hemp.
5) IS CBD LEGAL?
With the passing of the "Farm Bill" in 2018, hemp was removed from the scheduled list and made legal as an agricultural commodity.
So in reality it does nothing...if it had medicinal purpose it would have been thoroughly tested and only available from a doctor
"if it had medicinal purpose it would have been thoroughly tested and only available from a doctor"
Only if a major drug company with drug reps produced it and pitched it to doctors. . Doctors usually only deal with prescription drugs not natural herbal medicine.
If its on the internet...it must be true....my bad....even if its " herbal"... in reality its snake oil
Yup those children who suffers from horrible seizures who take CBD and thc fully believe it's snake oil. I guess they just pretend their seizures stop. Jesus people need to research things, and no a forum, including this one doesn't count.
On a different not I know Hackettstown at this point will not allow a medical store, but how permanent is that decision?
I invite you to come to the July 23rd Land Use Board at 7pm. Someone will be presenting to the board information regarding Medical marijuana at that meeting. If the LUB feels it is a benefit, then they can discuss locations, zoning, limits etc. The LUB would then send their recommendations to Town Council regarding changing their ordinance that banned medical to allow it. So i would say it is not permanent, talks will begin on 7/23.
Jim- Am I correct in stating in the ordinance the actual ban on a medical marijuana dispensary in town was a 5 year moratorium? I thought I recall the Mayor adding that thought at one of the meetings. I will say I have not read the adopted ordinance though.
I rather have a dispensary than another quick check, Wa Wa, nail salon ect.
I look forward to this new business!
I prefer SAE oil to CBD. When you have creaky joints it's just like a lubricant. A certain type called GL5 works best for me.
Was at a dispensary in Canada. Very classy place. Spotless. Neat and organized. And they follow strict rules. Would def rather have one of these in the area than a dumpy fast food place.
I'll be checking it out tomorrow. I've heard first hand great results some people have had.
I asked about this on another thread. I asked, researched, talked to doctors, sought reviews, and even spoke to users. Decided to try CBD capsules for all-over body pains. Pain was so bad that I could barely do the simplest of tasks, climb stairs or even get off the 'john'. After 2 weeks of using 15 mg AM, and 15mg PM, I have experienced significant relief. Leg pain in bed would keep me up for ours, until I finally fell asleep out of complete exhaustion. Now, pain is almost gone and I sleep.
For me, this has been a miracle. I can only hope results will stay the same or maybe improve over time.
It should also be noted that I'd tried many other remedies, light prescriptions and even opioids. None of which gave long term relief without significant side effects. So please don't mock or criticize those desperate to try.
Their Facebook page says the Hackettstown location does not open until August. I'm looking forward to checking it out. CBD has proven benefits and it's not snake oil. I've been using it for arthritis and IBS. It does work better for some people when administered with some THC, but that's not what the CBD stores are selling.
As for a medical MJ dispensary, I hope the town changes its tune. The state's medical MJ program is expanding and the number of people with medical cards is growing. Six dispensaries will open throughout the state (including Phillipsburg), supposedly by the end of the year, and the state is now accepting applications for more dispensaries beyond those 6 new ones. For some people with certain conditions, a combination of CBD and THC can be quite beneficial. For towns opening dispensaries, it could mean added revenue.
There’s also a CBD place going next to the deta gas station(or Phillips 66 now) on 46.

While I don't use CBD and don't plan to use it, I'm happy to see a new Hackettstown store getting a lot of buzz (no pun intended). And as always, it's better than an empty storefront.
Oh come on SG; it is snake oil in that its not fully medically tested; there are zippo guarantees about purity, strength, additives, etc. Not even 100% agreement that it does work.....and work for what?
Just like many natural cures.
The fact that it does help many for so many things is great. The fact it is natural, beyond any mystery additives, is great.
I can’t wait to try it.
This town doesn't need anything else to affect their bad driving skills.

Hope this stuff calms everyone down, and gives them the munchies. This will be a triple win-the sale of the CBD, the boon to all the restaurants in town, plus more business for the weight loss and gym establishments as well. Not only that but it will put less stress on law enforcement as everyone will just mellow out...
Since it’s practically impossible to overdose. You take the amount that works for you. And if you don’t want to take it you don’t. I don’t understand what all the reefer madness mentality types wish to achieve. If you don’t want to use it then don’t. There’s several pharmacies within town limits with enough drugs in stock to kill dozens of people. There isn’t enough cbd or to thc in the state to kill one person.
When marijuana is legalized. This will be our first pot store. Good move on their part.
Bug3 and Doll...
Your ignorance is apparently boundless. But by all means keep right on commenting, there's a twisted bit of entertainment value in it.
"Sounds like Hackettstown is hitting new lows every day"
Bet you love all the liquor stores and brew pubs and stores that sell cigarettes. lmao
"So in reality it does nothing...if it had medicinal purpose it would have been thoroughly tested and only available from a doctor"
No different from caffeine, but I'll bet you have coffee every day.
what's with all the grumpy old men in Hackettstown? Maybe a little CBD oil would calm them down.
Is all CBD oil the same?... are there any standards?

Go down Main Street, turn down Ethan 46 towards Target, it’s on the right.. It used to be a dentist office..
For the last 5 years my wife has worked as a dog trainer for a veterinary behaviorist, dealing with dogs with all sorts of serious problems. They treat with a range of medications and/or therapies, of course, depending on the specific problems at hand. In some cases they CBD oil has shown tremendous results.
"Snake oil" it is definitely not.
