The Pharm Stand Opens in Ridgefield

CBD has been all the rage for the past few years and is gaining more attention and acceptance in the mainstream. In Ridgefield, The Pharm Stand has opened a new location, offering high-quality, reliable CBD products.

Champions of CBD – short for cannabidiol – believe in its ability to alleviate muscle discomfort, reduce anxiety, and facilitate better sleep. The Pharm Stand's founders, Chris Singleton, Jayni Chase (wife of Chevy Chase), and Jason Provost are three of those champions.

Chris, a long-distance runner, uses CBD to treat muscle aches. Jayni uses it to treat rheumatoid Arthritis.

So what is CBD?

In short, CBD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis and hemp plants. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the high commonly associated with cannabis. Confusion between the two is common, so The Pharm Stand's owners and staff stand ready to explain exactly what it is, what it does, and discuss with visitors how it may help. They also sponsor special events to educate people about CBD and its many uses.

“We take the guesswork, homework, and legwork out of it,” says Chris.

CBD came into even more prominence recently when the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Epidiolex, a plant-based formulation of CBD, to treat seizures for people two years of age and older who suffer from Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).

As the CBD market exploded, it also became fragmented. Chris, Jayni, and Jason saw this as an opportunity to combine their experience and resources to bring greater structure, consistency, expertise, and knowledge to the market. Ridgefield is their second location. The first is in Armonk, New York.

A Wide Variety of CBD Products

Chris says The Pharm Stand’s customers will find a wide array of CBD products, all derived from “100% U.S. grown, organic, non-GMO hemp.” Products are available in various forms: capsules, tinctures, confections and chocolates, salves and lotions. Customers can shop at their leisure, try out products, and gain insight from the educated and informed staff.

The Pharm Stand is also committed to bringing the benefits of CBD to pets, offering a full line of products to help treat pet conditions similar to those of humans: muscle discomfort, anxiety, and sleep issues. The Pharm Stand also offers hemp dog collars and leashes.

Winter and the holidays are upon us. CBD may be a useful antidote to stress and cold weather. In addition to a wide selection of CBD, a variety of health and wellness products can also be found, ranging from candles to body scrubs. The Pharm Stand has pre-made gift boxes available, and customers can customize their own.
