1st cannabidiol CBD business opens in Marysville

It’s not cannibas with THC

MARYSVILLE – While there is a moratorium here on cannabis businesses, there is not for shops that sell cannabidiol products.

David and Julie Day opened the first such shop last weekend – New World Distributors at 9109 State Ave.

Day said there is a huge difference between the products – the other includes THC, which gives users a high, while CBD does not.

The products are similar, but with his you won’t fail a drug test, Day said.

He said while he can’t make claims that his products will cure anything, he can say people who use such products have said they have helped them with all types of ills.

The Days sell many products and are looking for more. Some items they have on hand include: oils, creams, lotions, balms, cleansers, shampoos, conditioners, coffee, tea and even dog treats and honey. Their No. 1 seller is a hemp intensive pain-relief rub with emu oil. Their edible candies are an inexpensive way to give CBD a try at $5 a bag. There are gummy worms, cherry bombs, watermelon slices, along with belts and rings that come in a variety of flavors.

Located in the former Foxy Lady barista stand, Day said he hopes to soon become one of only three drive-through CBD stands in the nation, even making a cup of their coffee available for people on the go.

The Days have lived in Marysville for more than 30 years; he working as a general contractor and she at the school district. They sold the products out of their home for about a year before opening the storefront. They attended the CannaCon at the Seattle Convention Center, which inspired them to do even more.

Day said he is a firm believer in the products. “I am a heart attack survivor, and they helped me throughout,” he said.

Julie said each product comes with recommendations for use, but really, “It’s whatever works for you.” Some people like to use more, some less, she explained. “It’s personal preference. It won’t hurt you” either way.

She said some people may feel relief right away; for others it may take longer. But one thing is certain.

“You won’t feel funny,” she said, because it lacks THC.

It was important for them to sell a “clean product,” especially since their son, who is now two years clean, was once an addict, they said.
