It still surprises me to this day when I hear people walk by the store and say something like 'Hemp is so bad, it leads to criminal activity' or 'They sell clothes here? I thought they only sold drugs!' I even heard someone scold their dog when it dried to drink out of the water dish we provide!!! Where have all these people been for the past century?!?!
First off, Hemp is NOT Marijuana, let's get that straight. They are different genetically, physically and they are used for very different purposes in very different ways. Before I go on a well deserved tangent on marijuana vs. hemp please, do some research for yourself. There are hundreds of books available (in our stores of course ;) ) to help you learn the differences.
Also, we do not sell drugs people!!! Pharmacies and your local grocery stores sell drugs. We have VERY strict rules and laws to follow....did you know that Canada has set the maximum THC content of hemp at 0.3%?? I bet you didn't! Any cannabis with higher THC levels is considered marijuana instead of hemp. You can't cut up a shirt we sell and smoke it. Well, you can do anything you want, but you would probably cause some serious irreversible harm if you tried something like that.
Our posters are psychedelic but they won't make you 'trip out'. Our beauty products will leave you feeling, smelling and looking fabulous and get rid of your eczema however, they will not get you 'stoned'. Our stores are family friendly and everyone is welcome. We are not as scary as you might think.
To those who continue to walk by our stores, or any store out of their realm of comfort, I encourage you, nay, I IMPLORE you to pull up your pants and step over the threshold of the unknown!! Who knows, you may walk out wiser, happier and with a new tie dye shirt of your own!!
