New CBD store opens in Weston
WESTON - For years, people assumed that cannibidiol, or CBD, products could make you high like it's cousin, cannabis, better known as medical marijuana.

Those myths were busted when growing hemp became legalized in Wisconsin almost a year ago.

Now, CBD products are spreading across the state.

One CBD store opened in Weston this past weekend. 

'Your CBD Store' owner Morgan Trone decided to take her passion for CBD products and turn it in to her career. 

"I started to see how much it was affecting my family. My daughter was using it, myself, my dad was using it," said Trone. "So it wasn't just personal anymore. It became something that I just wanted to reach out to other people and be able to offer it to them as well." 

Trone opened 'Your CBD Store' in Weston on Feb. 2; a store filled with all kinds of CBD products.

"Lotion and bath bombs, lip balm, collagen cream," said Trone. "I'm really passionate about helping [here] so people have an alternative method of getting relief instead of taking prescription medication."

Trone and her employees, like Lauren Halstead, want to help people use CBD has for whatever problems they have.

"For pain, for anxiety, for inflammation, migraines, the list goes on," said Trone. "It's really endless."

"If I'm having an anxiety attack, it can help bring me down a bit," added Halstead. "The vape is super fast-acting so like when I had that onset of the migraine, it can act very very quickly."

Trone said her products stand out because they're much more natural compared to other options, like prescription medicine. 

"It's our body and we only have it one time, you know, that's it," said Trone. "You have one body and then it's gone, so to really take care of it and make sure you're being healthy."

People who came this October got to spend about 45 minutes walking through a giant Smokey Bear.

Volunteers said it takes a lot of planning to make their field of dreams a reality.

"It takes a good year to get it planned out," said volunteer Meghan Walters. "What's going to be our theme? Once the weather turns nice, [we plan] how are we going to plant the corn, who's planting the corn, and then how are we going to create the maze."

The regular corn maze season ended Sunday.

However, Willow Springs will transform it into a haunted corn maze this week.

MINOCQUA - Dozens came to the Northwoods Wildlife Center's open house Saturday afternoon.

It's the only day of the year the center gives tours of its rehabilitation facilities.

During these tours, people learned about the process of nursing wild animals back to health.

"We're not a zoo so unless they're non-releasable we aren't socializing with them at all," said wildlife rehabilitator Amanda Walsh. "We're making sure they're clean, providing good care for them, but we're not schmoozing with them. We're just making sure they have what they need and we'll go from there."

Tour guides brought groups outside where animals were getting re-accustomed to life outdoors.

Executive director Mickey Mueller explained why it's important for these animals to have minimal human contact.

"They came in here as wild animals and when they're released we want them to thrive and survive without human contact, without humans feeding them," said Mueller. "That they're able to get along on their own."

Mueller said the best part about her job is seeing rehabilitated animals released back into the wild where they belong.

Although Saturday was the only chance to see rehab animals, people can always come to learn more about the facility or check out the birds of prey tour.
