MOUNT IDA – The Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed Barbara McCarty and her son Shaun McCarty and their business Hempyville to the neighborhood with a ribbon-cutting last Friday.
The mother-son duo are working hard to provide a safe natural alternative to man-made prescriptions through the use of CBD products. Hempyville CBD is a quaint little shop located on Highway 27 S as you drive into Mount Ida. The business is a continuation of a journey the McCarty family has been traveling for several years.
It all began when Barbara’s husband returned from the military after serving in Operation Desert Storm. She shared that doctors had placed him on a cocktail of prescription medications that they had been told he shouldn’t take, but yet he did under doctor’s orders for three years.
As he grew worse, Barbara began looking into more natural ways to manage his pain. Her journey led her into the world of essential oils and from there she was introduced to CBD products and hemp.
While visiting Colorado she entered a CBD store and was introduced to a man who helped her start her own business here in Montgomery County.
Hempyville CBD offers a wide range of natural products. She stated that some contain small amounts of THC while others don’t. All her hemp comes from a grower who has been working with hemp for 40 years. Due to the trace levels of THC all of her products must be subject to chemical analysis. The chemical analysis results are clearly displayed in her store.
She understands that a lot of people may not understand the benefits of taking a CBD product. CBD is short for cannabinoid oils and is found in all cannabis plants. What many people don’t know is that human brains naturally produce cannabinoids. The cannabinoids naturally found in the brain help regulate pain. When the natural levels drop the CBD products help bring balance to the body.
It is true that CBDs are found in the cannabis plants. While most people are more aware of the controversial marijuana plant, hemp is also a member of the same family. While both plants contain THC, the levels in hemp are much lower than marijuana. Hemp can be grown and sold in Arkansas, but must contain a low THC level.
She looks forward to opportunities to help educate people on the products in her store. There is no risk of addiction, but the possible improvement in a multitude of ailments are real according to Barbara.
Hempyville is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1:30 to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
