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."

RHINELANDER - Currently, people who want help need to dial a full 10-digit number.
 
A new proposal shortens that helpline number down to three numbers.

Mental health experts in Wisconsin voiced their opinion in support of the change.

Behavioral Health Administrator Donna Shimeck said it would make the hotline easier to use.

"The hope would be that this is going to be similar to the 911 number and reduce the stigma of reaching out for help when you're at your most vulnerable time," said Shimeck.

Shimeck said the change would streamline things for everyone
