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."

MINOCQUA - Teen voices cut through the nearby traffic at Torpy Park in Minocqua Friday.

"I'm terrified of the fact to have children because I don't want to bring them into this earth just to destroy it."

"I think in the 2020 election [climate change] should be our most important issue when we go to vote."

After holding up signs along highway 51, high school senior Maile Llanos shared her concerns.

"I care because it is uncertain if I have a future to look forward to," said Llanos. "I care because the outcome of my future is in the hands of someone else. To all the politicians, I want you to know that the state of our environment is not a partisan issue. Know that climate change will affect you whether you are a Democrat or a Republican."

Llanos started an environmental initiative in Rhinelander called 'Paint It Green', asking local businesses to reduce their carbon emissions. At the rally, she encouraged people to reach out to legislators and tell them it's now or never.
