CULTUREMAP – A bustling store has opened on the east side of Austin. Rawsome, a family owned mini-chain selling handmade cannabinoid or CBD oil, has just been delivered to 1210 Rosewood Ave.
CBD oil is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis plants. Unlike marijuana, which has a high content of THC (the chemical compound that keeps users high), CBD oil usually contributes less than 1 percent. As a result, CBD oil is used to treat everything from insomnia to seizures to arthritis without the psychoactive side effects. (Oh, and it's legal.)
Although the product was available to Austinites in stores across the city, Rawsome is the first store dedicated exclusively to CBD oil. "What we offer is a quiet learning environment and our missions: just two ingredients that are certified organic and wholesale prices for all," says Gina Andres of Rawsome CultureMap.
