Cannabis Products at High Desert Farmers Market: The difference between CBD and THC

By: Simone Graham – Editor HDG: Down the main walkway at the Farmer’s Market located on Victor Valley College’s lower campus, is the TAZ booth selling products for pain and to provide relief for a variety of symptoms. Some of the creams, salves, soaps, and bath bombs also have essential oils in them that target cold symptoms, are healing for your skin, or soothe nerves and have a calming effect on the human body. Essential oils in themselves do not heal the body, but the body takes from their chemical composition what it needs to heal itself. The main ingredient in TAZ products is CBD oil. If you have been looking for it or know someone who has, it is here on display and for sale every Thursday and at the Big Bear Farmer’s Market.  Some other booths at the market also have CBD products for sale.

Tayla Shepard did not think about making cannabis products until she started researching how to make them safely for herself. She was very ill taking numerous medications that seemed be doing nothing to heal her condition. The medications were treating symptoms but doing nothing to change her health. Her products have CBD oil in their preparation. They are crafted not to make you high, but to address health problems. She turned to medical marijuana but found the cookies, edibles, were too strong.  She did not want to get high; she wanted to get well. It was not until she was doing her Ph.D. research that she began to collect information on the origin, composition, and effects of CBD oil.

“Our bodies have natural receptors for CBD,” explained Tayla.

One website outlines it in more specific terms. “All the 60-plus cannabinoids unique to the plant genus Cannabis interact with our bodies thanks to a network of neurons called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system runs throughout your body. And it’s loaded with receptors that bind to the cannabinoids you introduce to your bloodstream when you consume weed (”

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is a hemp-based product legal in all 50 states. Obtaining CBD oil from marijuana is not legal in all states.  The processor can “carbonize” to ignite, or turn on, for CBDs or for THC. Tayla processes for both.

She obtains her raw material from plant producers in the business. “It’s a misdemeanor to dispose of stems, roots, or leaves so they give them to me.”

THC products are mainly for those who have neurological issues. The tinctures, oils, caplets, lotions, edibles, bath bombs, and soaps that she makes are also produced with THC. Tayla can also custom blend to control THC levels for your order. These products are on her website and are available for pick up or delivery. San Bernardino County is a zero-tolerance zone for store-front THC sales which is why you can get it delivered directly to your house.

Check her website for products, then give her a call for any information or clarification if you cannot stop by her booth on Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
