The CBD HempDropz Store is a specialized CBD Store with three main locations and two sister stores. In fact, the Fargo location was the first store to open in North Dakota that sells primarily CBD products! CBD HempDropz Stores prides itself on providing their customers with the highest quality whole hemp and CBD products to help improve your health and well-being. Their staff is eager to educate the curious, guide the open-minded and enlighten you about the benefits of what their products can do for you.
Words from the owners:
So where did we get started?
We are three friends that came together with one idea in mind: to share what we had learned and felt after using a great line of CBD products.
After opening up one store in Otsego, MN, we quickly learned that northwestern Minnesota did not have anything available in terms of high quality CBD products. And, with Matt having been born and raised in East Grand Forks, we decided it was time to help this area have access to great relief.
Matt comes with a background in graphic design. He currently runs the local company, Signature Graphix, next to running the three CBD stores here in northwest Minnesota.
Alexa and Karrli are two sisters and nurses. Alexa currently works in surgery and post operative care but also has work experience in pediatrics and critical care. Karrli works in the area of oncology and infusion services, specializing in rheumatology and immune disorders.
Together, we have found that CBD has made our daily journeys much easier and we are here to help you find that same success.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of dozens of non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Cannabidiol (CBD), which is the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds to the receptors in your immune system, can provide a variety of health benefits.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?
Cannabinoids are the primary compounds produced by the cannabis plant; there are over 100 cannabinoids that have been identified, each with different properties and herbal effects. Common ones include CBD and THC.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
A natural cannabinoid receptor system has been discovered in the human body, the endocannabinoid system. It is by binding to these receptors that cannabinoids produce their pharmacological effects. There are at least two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans: CB1 and CB2.
Products by the Plentiful!
CBD HempDropz Store, has over 20 products varieties to offer its customers. They offer free samples in store of our water solubles, gummies, hard candy, and topical creams before you buy and their staff is eager to answer any question you have. You will notice that the products in CBD have a QR code, that once scanned, will bring you to information on third party testing. This Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is helpful for those trying to distinguish between the quality and actual content of items containing CBD. Because these products are not considered medical products, they are not regulated for the federal government in the United States.
I had the opportunity to try one of the waters while getting a tour and loved it! So many flavors to choose from including Lemon Lime, Black Cherry, and Orange. The Mountjoy Sparkling water gives you the benefits of full spectrum CBD in an all-natural, great tasting bubbly drink!
Their newest products include this vape line.
They even have products for your furry friends! Dogs endocrine systems are similar to humans so the same health benefits in humans from product use have been seen in dogs too. Their treats are grain and gluten free and made with 100% natural ingredients your dogs will love.
Who doesn't like coffee?! The combination of CBD and coffee can give you the alertness of coffee but without the jitters for some people.
Moving forward, the company would like to continue with educating the community. By teaming up with schools, nursing homes, and other community groups, they are able to get the word out to the public on the benefits and uses of their products. They are continually reviewing academic research studies that are driving greater acceptance of natural plant-based solutions such as CBD and whole hemp products to diminish reliance on pharmaceutical drugs. You will find their store to be evolving with new and available products - with the goal to always be looking to provide the best CBD products available.
