CBD in Louisville
Snuggled up to the Ohio River and the border between Kentucky and Indiana, Louisville, or The ‘Ville to those that live in the 502, might be the biggest small town we’ve ever enjoyed.
Many cities in the US revel in calling themselves a small town, but Louisville lives up to the claim. Within a day of spending time here while promoting our cannabidiol oil, we knew our hotel manager’s name and where his kids went to school.
You see a lot of “Keep Louisville Weird” shirts and bumper stickers around the city. But this isn’t the weird you find in a dive bar in Portland, nor the weird that appears in the crepuscular cavities of a downtown LA club.
It’s a good weird; it draws you in rather than pushes you away. We mean, how can you turn your back on a city that raised Muhammad Ali, invented bourbon, and instituted the Kentucky Derby?
This is a city of trendsetters. And one of the ‘Ville’s latest trends is cannabidiol (CBD). Kentucky was the only state in the nation allowed to grow hemp up until 2018. So it goes without saying that they’re home to some of the best CBD oils in the country, including Balance CBD.
Below, we’ll reveal the best CBD in Louisville and what to do around the city as you enjoy the benefits of industrial hemp-derived oils, edibles, and vapes.
Buy CBD Oil in Louisville
Louisville is a four-season city. That means the patio season thrills from May to September and the families cozy up fireside to views of snow spilling on old-growth pines. But if there’s one consistency in Louisville it’s on the lips and in the hands of every citizen — bourbon.
Louisville reigns as the bourbon capital of the country and the world. That’s because a whiskey can’t even be called bourbon unless it was harvested, mashed, distilled, and corked in Kentucky. Within a fifty mile radius of Louisville, you’ll find the best bourbon distilleries in the state.
Like most tourists short on time and very thirsty, we found a bourbon tour the second we had spare time. The lovely folks at Kentucky Bourbon Trail allowed us to pick from an extensive list of bourbon purveyors, including big names like Maker’s Mark, and names less known outside of bluegrass country, like Town Branch.
While we don’t condone drinking the finest golden brown liquor to ever spring from American soil with CBD oil, there are worse ideas than having some on hand to recenter after a few flights of 10 year top shelf.
Balance CBD’s oils ship in both THC-free and full-spectrum versions. This affords you the choice to enjoy your CBD with or without the added benefits of other cannabinoids and terpenes.
Either way, all of our CBD oils are non-GMO, gluten-free, and organic. You can try our oils with or without natural flavoring. We suggest our top seller this month, the potent Balance CBD CBD Oil.
Buy CBD Gummies in Louisville
While Louisville may flaunt its small-town roots, don’t mistake this city for anything but a major American food destination. Yes, they invented Kentucky Fried Chicken, but there’s a lot more to this Kentucky town than the Colonel’s far-reaching and high-calorie delight.
Our favorite can’t be anything other than the hot brown. We know. It sounds like something a middle school teacher finds in the boy’s bathroom, but its roots are downright bougie. Invented in the 1920s by the famous Brown Hotel on West Broadway, the dish was initially conjured to satiate the midnight hunger pangs of their jitterbugging guests.
The hot brown infuses simple and sophisticated in a way that only a small-big city could muster — you two slices of Texas toast, slap down juicy chunks of roast turkey and bacon, open-faced, and pour on the savory Mornay sauce stacked with gruyere cheese.
It’s not exactly low calorie, so if you’re worried about over-indulging on dessert, then try a CBD gummy. Louisville customers have returned again and again for the enticing flavors of Balance CBD’s 10 and 25 mg CBD edibles. We cook up our gummies with organic ingredients and natural flavors, like our Orange Dreamsicle, spiked with zesty orange rinds and buttery cream.
Shop CBD Vape Cartridges and Pens in Louisville
To think that there was a time in Louisville’s history when horse racing took place on the busy cobblestone streets during daylight hours as sailors unloaded their hauls and bricklayers set up their wood-plank scaffolding.
The history of horse racing in Louisville begins in the late 19th century and continues today in the lush gardens and well-kept grounds of Churchill Downs. Constructed in 1875, the facility has hosted the Kentucky Derby ever since the first year it opened its paddocks to the finest specimens in the race of kings.
Many of the mainstays of Kentucky can be found during the Derby. The Mint Julep spiked with local bourbon, the sun hats and ostentatious dresses, and the horses themselves. Many of these incredible animals were bred and raised on the wide-open fields of Kentucky, and their speed and bravery stand as a symbol for the people that raised them.
And when the starting bell goes off on race day, don’t forget to have your CBD vape on hand. We make our vapes with pure ingredients and a potent CBD isolate. You can purchase disposable pens for Derby day, or refillable cartridges to take with you on your Saturday racing routine — for a perfect pairing, try our CBD Vape Pen today!
