What exactly is CBD?

About a year ago I was sitting at a party filled with mostly conservative (so I thought) suburban church-going women in Douglas County and I heard someone mention this lotion with this ‘cbc’ stuff with a slightly confused tone. “Yea, I’ve heard that can help with aches and pains or something…” I chimed in and inquired, “Are you talking about CBD?” I was shocked that this topic was coming up in such a circle, but it was.
These kinds of conversations are happening all over Colorado, but even all over the country. People are curious about Cannabis and Marijuana. They want to know if it’s all just a bunch of smoke, or if there’s actually something to this miracle plant as so many call it. There’s the stigmas, the political slants, the rumors, and then there are those that are out to change that. Enter, Canna Luxury Tours.
Canna Luxury Tours (CLT) is out to help educate the public on what is actually going on in the Marijuana industry. And, no, it’s not just a bunch of people getting high all day long. There’s real business happening, real money being made, and real lives being changed all as a result of a little green plant. CLT has designed a few amazing tours that give you a full-day immersion into the industry to learn, see, and even smell.

I was fortunate to be invited to check out CLT’s first Wellness Tour. The entire day was centered on holistic wellness, and more specifically, how hemp can improve your health and well being. Let me tell you, I was pampered from head to toe and came out looking like a new woman. When I got done with the facial, everyone literally told me my face was glowing. Needless to say, I had a great time on the tour and learned a ton!
Excellence. This was a given, knowing who runs this operation. Literally, ever vendor and venue we experienced during the day was top-notch. The spa was serene, calm, and full of professionals who explained everything thoroughly. You could literally taste the freshness in the lunch at the nearby farm-to-table restaurant. And then, we headed to the tour of the grow facility. This grow was pristine, and since I grow a lot of my own veggies, I KNOW that it’s hard to keep a garden area that clean. The head-to-toe white suits were just one of the many precautions they take to make sure that the plants are not contaminated in any way.
Education. One of the best things about CLT’s Wellness Tour is that they educate you on what you’re experiencing every step of the way. The intro to hemp was so informative and by the end of the talk, you start to really wonder why hemp isn’t used more often in our world for things from construction to food to clothing to even wellness products.
Enjoyable. The day was simply fun. Simple. As. That. The way the day was structured, you really had time to chat with the people on your tours or in between spa treatments. The CLT folks were great about bringing everyone together at the meal times, which allowed you to get to know other people, as well as ask questions that inevitably pop up.
So, if you’re curious about this ‘CBD’ thing that you’ve heard about in your book club circles, or you’re wondering what’s really going on with the whole Marijuana industry, a Canna Luxury Tour is a great way to get immersed into what’s going on. There’s a whole lot more to it than you might assume, and Canna Luxury Tours gets you the front row seat to see it!
