Tara Marquardt has just opened the DC CBD in downtown Juneau at 114A S. Main St. She said she drove more than an hour to pick up certain products and wanted to bring them closer to home and help people right in the middle of Dodge County, with a focus on the highest quality, greatest choice and affordable price.

The store sourced local sources for its oils, tablets and creams and chose not to sell products such as candy, cigarettes and flavored beverages to emphasize the healing properties of the products.
Nelson said local businesses are best for personal attention and care while customers learn about CBD.
“I think there is an explosion in the CBD market because people are really looking for more natural things to put in their bodies, instead of relying on laboratory-created chemical mixtures that may or may not completely cope with their symptoms. they want to risk some of the side effects that drugs can have, “she said.
Nelson said it is important for consumers to be informed and learn how to use the products, as everyone will have a different experience.
