Bob Parker, a Maryville resident opens up about his experience with CBD. He talks about how CBD has been able to give him back his life, without any external medical prescription for pain. He had a fourth stage kidney failure after which he was hospitalized for over a period of 70 days. The ailment left Parker paralyzed by the legs for three months.
It was then he decided to switch to CBD and began using 500 mg strength broad band spectrum oil once a day. He was able to walk again only after using it for four days. Many research and patients have recorded a significant improvement in their health after using cannabidiol.
Reduced or eliminated pain, anxiety, inflammation by the use of CBD oil for treating various medical conditions can be heard loudly from the family members, relatives and friends of Tony and Kathy Thomas.
They own a shop off the Asheville Highway – WalkUp Too Wellness –where they offer a full spectrum of CBD products which are derived from locally grown, high quality, all natural-hemp that is locally processed using CO2 extraction for the purest products.
Tony Thomas, a veteran suffered from severe back pain and was informed by the Veterans Affairs that opioids will no longer be issued to him to alleviate his pain. After delving in-depth research about alternative treatments for relieving pain, Tony finally found CBD which has already relieved 90% of his pain. The drug has impacted him greatly and gifted him a new life which is pain free!
Kathy giggled saying how he always show off everybody that he can bend, walk normally and get down on the floor, then get back up without any pain just because of CBD. The two bought around $5000 worth of CBD products to identify and test out its responses with respect to pain and anxiety. They bought it from a local parent company which sold naturally grown hemp derived CBD and gave them to around 1000 people who were suffering from varied ailments.
Tony explained how their test gave them a humongous positive response with rave reviews and overwhelming replies from the patients. After conducting a successful trial, they planned to open a small business to help as many people as they possibly could while making it extremely affordable for everyone.
They wanted to offer CBD as a cost effective alternative to high end medical prescriptions which often fail to treat or cure ailments like mental disorders, pain, inflammation or even Cancer.
WalkUp Too Wellness was launched on April 1, 2019 in East Knoxville. The Thomas family is quite content with the response they have been receiving from their customers. Many people have reported back saying that they are no longer battling with brain tumour, back pain, brain fog, anxiety, carpal tunnel and migraine headaches after taking their CBD products.
Kids with 18 to 20 seizures a day, now suffer hardly 2 seizures in a day only after using CBD oil for a month. The state of Tennessee aligning with the federal law considers CBD oil derived from industrial hemp a legal substance. It is a special compound found only in the hemp plant of the cannabis genus which has anti-inflammatory and non-psychoactive properties. According to a research published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, CBD counteracts the effects of THC, another compound which has psychoactive properties and alters the state of mind when consumed. It is this compound which causes the ‘high’ when people smoke weed.
Once CBD is activated, it turns on specific receptors in our body which influence bodily functions to create positive changes in the body. It results in suppressed seizures, reduced nauseas, pain, ability to fight depression, eliminate cancer cells, balance chemicals in the mind, temper neurodegenerative disorders and improve sleep pattern.
Thomas further added that out of the 1000 people, about 1-1.5% reported no changes in their health status after consuming CBD. Their products are cruelty free and vegan, they are handmade in small batches to maintain the high-quality quotient. They are offering a special price for 500mg strength full spectrum CBD oil, which comes in 9 flavours for just $29.95.
Besides the popular CBD oils, the store also offers a gamut of other products such as sticks, flowers, vapes, rollers, bath bombs, hand sanitizers and body creams.
