Many businesses are suffering from the effects of the COVID19 lockdown. Even now, as things re-open some businesses are having to look closely at their balance sheets, however the Munster man behind DR.HEMP ME says sales of CBD health supplements doubled since the lockdown began in March, because he sells the bulk of his products online rather than relying on traditional bricks and mortar stores.
Brian Cusack spoke with TheCork.ie about his brand which is called DR.HEMP ME. Cusack is a former corporate banker interested in alternative health supplements. He believes that CBD made a positive impact on his own life, and he wants others to try his range of CBD-based oils, vaping products, skin creams, and coffee.
Speaking to TheCork.ie, Brian said “we rank really well on Google, so you’ll come across our name if you’re searching for CBD Oil in Ireland”.
After suffering from migraines for close to a decade, Brian suggested that his girlfriend give CBD oil a trial run back in early 2018 to see if it made any difference.
“And you know what? It worked for her,” Brian, who has since moved back to Waterford with his girlfriend following a stint in Dublin, tells us that DR.HEMPME has grown steadily since its inception 2 years ago. A focus on quality and quick delivery in a growing CBD market is key he says.
The Stigma Around Cannabis Food Supplements is Now Lifting
“Business was much quieter at the start, I don’t feel people were as open to cannabidiol back then. When the site went live I felt that I had to talk to people a lot more. It was almost like you couldn’t get a sale without a chat first, which is completely understandable as it was a new product. Anyone who’s about to spend €70 will really want to trust what they’re buying.”
“It’s a premium product that’s organically grown in Europe. We use a C02 extraction process, which is the most expensive production method. We also get all of our products third party lab tested by the Cannabis Trades Association (CTA). I don’t think there are many out there doing all of the above, including testing which is a risk, as it’s just a really expensive way of going about things.”
According to Brian adding a CBD supplement to your diet is just like including a multivitamin, vitamin or mineral into your daily food intake. Some people take Vitamin D or calcium every day as their daily vitamins, Brian takes CBD oil. CBD oil as a food supplement for example can contribute nutrients to your diet including healthy Omega’s which are found in the oil. Men and women alike are increasingly taking health supplements like CBD oil and even CBD infused foods as anecdotal evidence suggests they benefit the body.
Boasting Ireland’s strongest Cannabidiol supplements is one thing, but DR.HEMPME plans to go several steps further in the coming months. “We have loads of things we want to do before the year is out all going well,” he said. With a growing reputation as one of Ireland’s premium CBD oil specialists, DR.HEMPME looks set to be yet another Munster business success story.
What is CBD Oil and how you can introduce it to your diet?
For those who don’t know CBD Oil is one of many compounds found in the cannabis plant, all of which are called cannabinoids. Another of these cannabinoids is THC and known to many as the compound which causes a ‘high’. CBD on the other hand does not cause this psychoactive high effect on those who take it and CBD oils contain only trace amounts of THC or none at all.
Men and women of all ages can take CBD oil as a health food supplement to fuel their body along with a healthy balanced diet. It is generally extracted from the hemp plant which is a branch of the cannabis plant family. Dr. Hemp Me’s CBD oils use hemp seed oil and MCT oil as carrier oil options for their CBD extract. These Irish CBD oils are available in a variety of different strengths with some even suitable for your pets.
To take CBD oil as a food supplement you simply drop the oil under your tongue and leave it there for one minute or more. You can then swallow as the oil will have gone through an absorption process through the gums and into the blood. Other options include taking a capsule of CBD extract, CBD jellies or even CBD coffee, all of which are digested by the body and enter your system differently.
Dr. Hemp Me’s website features an online CBD store, blog articles on the topic of CBD research and more, plus an easy checkout process for efficient customer service. If you have a question about CBD and the different forms available then pop a question into the site’s instant chat feature.
