Linda Casias is bringing CBD products back to Los Alamos, starting noon May 8 when her new business Atomic City CBD Wellness opens its doors for the first time.
“Many people have come over from my former business, Float Los Alamos, where we sold CBD products,” Casias said. “These products were very popular. Customers are very happy to have a natural remedy for anxiety, stress and pain relief. CBD also helps with sleep problems.”
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is a web of receptors in the nervous system, Casias explained adding that CBD is non-intoxicating and sometimes CBD is mixed up with THC—which will get you high—but they’re completely different compounds.
The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp (defined as having less than 0.3 percent THC) legal in the United States. CBD made from hemp is legally permitted in all states except Iowa, Idaho and South Dakota.
Casias offers a myriad of CBD products including:
- Coffee and tea;
- Creams; and
It’s not just about CBD. Casias also is featuring non-CBD candy and chocolate, bath bombs, greeting cards, stickers and fidget toys.
“I’m also displaying and selling my unique dots artwork,” Casias said. “My 10-year-old daughter is selling her own brand of slime called Izzy Slime. It’s not as sticky as commercial brands. I’m planning to add Los Alamos souvenirs and more gifts. Stop back, because I’m adding more items all the time.”
Atomic CBD Wellness is upstairs at 1247 Central Ave. Suite F, Room 219, directly above the Los Alamos Daily Post. Hours are noon to-6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Call the store at 505.709.7328, for more information.
