The first-ever CBD Dispensary in Cape Town is up and running, thanks to Goodleaf, a company founded by Jenni Katz and Warren Schewitz.
Goodleaf brings to you “the next generation of wellness rituals, engineered by nature to restore balance.”
The dispensary reportedly sells a wide variety of CBD products ranging from drops and vapes to topicals. In case you aren’t already aware, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive chemical compound — extracted from the hemp (Sativa) plant — with many medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
In the United States and Canada, CBD is extensively used to treat chronic pain, insomnia, epileptic seizures and anxiety.
If you are residing in Cape Town and want to head over straight to the dispensary, take note of the following things:
Goodleaf is located at one of the most bustling streets in Cape Town’s central-bowl district. If you have been waiting for too long to experience the wonders of CBD, your wait ends at the newly renovated Tiny Empire building in Buitenkant Street.
The products they sell
As stated earlier, at Goodleaf, you can buy CBD drops, vapes and creams of international brands like Select CBD, Herb Essentls and Dr. Kerklaan.
Anything derived from the cannabis plant is going to be expensive. Since CBD products may serve as an alternative to conventional medicine, spending a few bucks on them shouldn’t be much of a problem for most. The price range of the products at Goodleaf is as follows:
- Drops: R1 200 – R1 600
- Vapes: Base Price of R400 excluding the corresponding oil
- Topicals: R165 – R1 395
Would these products make one ‘high’?
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that in no case will give you a high. However, please note that CBD products typically contain trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound that gives one a ‘high’.
Since THC would be in very low quantities, you can rest assured that these products won’t get you high.
