Your CBD Store – Northridge
Cannabidiol is a compound found in the industrial hemp plant that offers numerous benefits. Better known as CBD, it is one of over 140+ chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. While most associate cannabis with delivering the therapeutic benefits of commonly associated with medicinal marijuana, you can get many of the same benefits from CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC.
The human body contains a specialized system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is involved in regulating a variety of functions in the body. The (ECS) receptors are found in most important areas of the body such as our brain, stomach, skin, etc. We naturally produce cannabinoids in our body however most of us do not produce enough or too much in some cases. CBD encourages our own body to regulate cannabinoid production on its own.
Claudia Chaverra is the owner of Your CBD Store – Northridge. Claudia first began her CBD journey after the horrific Las Vegas shooting in 2017. On that night Stephen Paddock opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. Claudia was a survivor of this terrible incident and as a result she developed PTSD.
"It's something that no one's ever prepared for," says Claudia. "After it happened it just turned my life upside down. I had to take daily antidepressants and anxiety pills. It affected my daily functions."
Before Vegas Claudia had never heard of CBD. But about a year after the incident a friend who had also survived the shooting was introduced to this natural and up and coming alternative solution.
"I saw my friend getting back to being herself," says Claudia. "She said 'you gotta try this.' At first, I was hesitant because I was raised in a household where drugs/cannabis were considered bad – but then I got educated on what CBD actually is and I took a leap of faith."
After Claudia started taking CBD daily it became a game-changer. She was able to get off antidepressants and anxiety pills and got herself back on track. Then the opportunity of opening her own CBD store was presented and after the Borderline shooting in Thousand Oaks, it more than solidified her decision.
"I wanted to open a store where I could help the community and other people through CBD as it helped me," says Claudia. "I reside in Thousand Oaks so when Borderline happened that was a clear reminder. I wanted to tell the survivors of that mass shooting that there is hope and that they are not alone."
Anxiety and depression are common mental health disorders that can have devastating impacts on health and well-being. CBD oil has shown promise as a treatment for both depression and anxiety.
"People are getting to a point where they want to feel better. A lot of the stuff out there just targets symptoms instead of the root of the problem," says Claudia. "Finding something that will work naturally with your body is what people are ready for."
