Corinth will soon be home to a business that specializes in the sale of health products containing cannabidiol (CBD), which comes from hemp plants.
Lazarus Labs, 1501 U.S. Highway 72 East, Corinth, is expected to open in early October, owner Steve Dunn told Corinth Today on Wednesday.
The business will sell a variety of products containing CBD and more than 100 other cannabinoids found in hemp plants. The products cannot have more than 0.3 percent THC.
Products sold at the business will be legal and will not get the user “high,” Dunn noted. He said his CBD will come from organic hemp grown in Colorado and that he wants to make people “healthy, not high.”
Topical pain creams, sublingual oil (applied under tongue), candles, massage oils and gummy edibles are among the products Lazarus Labs will sell, Dunn added.
Chronic pain, inflammation and anxiety are among the conditions that can be treated with the CBD products, which can also help pets, Dunn said.
Lab reports will show the percentage of cannabinoids contained in the various products to let the consumers know what they are getting, he said. His products will contain between 500-2,000 milligrams of cannabinoids.
Dunn will not write prescriptions, diagnose medical problems or go against medical advice. He said his products can supplement the medical treatment a person receives. He encourages people to speak with their doctors about CBD.
While Dunn does not intend for his products to replace people’s prescription medication, he does hope they can help people steer away from opioid addiction, he said.
Dunn wants Lazarus Labs to be a place where people can become more educated on CBD.
