I am one to try anything when it comes to relieve pain. Most recently I have been struggling with a bummed hip.
I had heard the many claims of cannabidiol (CBD) oil helping with pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, inflammation and more. An afternoon with a friend took me to Your CBD Store at 2824 W. Locust St., Davenport, in search of relief for her sister who suffers from painful rheumatoid arthritis.
I, too, left with a small bottle of oil in hopes of relief. The strawberry flavored CBD oil has helped me rest better but, most importantly, it has helped relieve some of the pain in my hip. I am a believer of this growing therapeutic magic oil and recommend trying it.
The business sells organic cannabidiol (CBD) oil that originates from cannabis and hemp plants without the psychoactive effects of marijuana. The oil is said to work as an anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, control pain and seizures, ease anxiety and help with cancer symptoms. The store was the first one of its kind in Iowa.
Store owner Becky Ramker and her son, Tyler, opened the dispensary in September and their business quickly took off. Now more than 1,600 frequent customers are purchasing oils, lotions, lip balms, tinctures, skin care products, pet products and edibles. With the increase in clients, Ramker has since opened a store at SouthPark Mall in Moline and in Clinton, Iowa.
“We want to help people get off their pain meds,” Ramker said.
“We cannot make health claims, but we have heard positive testimonials on how CBD oil has helped them,” she said. “We want to spend time with our customers and try to find the right fit for them explaining the doses carefully and how to administer the products.”
Ramker said the CBD products offered at her stores are made with no fillers.
CBD oil doses range from 250 to 3,000 milligrams. Products range in price from $12 to $110 and come in different flavors. Topical creams are available to help with arthritis pain.
Ramker said CBD oil has helped her own family; her daughter-in-law suffered from seizures and her symptoms have been relieved from the use of CBD oil.
“We see many people with different health problems,” she said. “CBD is such a good alternative to prescription drugs, pain pills and has even helped those with diabetes.
“I have had several customers get relief from our products for their health issues such as anxiety, migraines, arthritis, fibromyalgia, nausea, lower blood sugar and many more,” Ramker said.
Ramker said the family will soon open locations in Iowa City and Rock Island.
“Our goal is to get people to use a natural grown product instead of all the prescription drugs out there,” she said.
