My Mission

My name is Rob MacArthur.  I wandered into a CBD store in 2018 and was thrilled and amazed after trying hemp products for my decades long struggle with chronic pain.  It was annoying that some brands worked and some didn't.  It was then that I believed starting a store would be the only way to help people learn about using CBD. I spent a year vetting products.  New brands, new products, and changing prices--it's a lot to learn.  I've done it for you.  Come to The CBD Curators for the best brands at the best prices.

There are so many brands and so much language and labeling I didn't understand.  And there were no guidelines on dosing.  Soon I learned CBD is not only good for pain, but anxiety, depression, and sleep.  This started my quest to understand CBD products and how to use them. There's a need to spread awareness about this wonderful plant, hemp. It has so drastically changed my life for the better. 

The brands I carry are the tip of the iceberg compared to the dozens of brands I tried.  Many brands were weak or too expensive for the amount of CBD in the product.  Did you know CBD dosing goes partially by weight? There are a lot of deceptive brands starting to flood the market. I pay attention to several cannabinoids with various healing properties like CBC which is known helping anxiety. 

I've had several lower back surgeries and was on opiates for a few years before I found CBD. CBD dramatically reduced the pain and reduced my withdrawal symptoms from opiates. No amount of stretching could address the pain from chronic muscle spasm or sciatica.

I also have depression, anxiety, and ADHD.  CBD has improved my depression and improved my focus.  I have PTSD related to childhood trauma.  CBD has improved my sleep by reducing the intensity of my dreams.  

CBD has allowed me to stop taking several pharmaceuticals, some for decades.  That is not something anyone in physical or mental pain does lightly.  I have confidence in CBD.  I haven't taken Advil or Tylenol since I found CBD.

Many people come in the store seeking relief from painful ailments. I am not a doctor, but I've been a patient and therefore a student of my own healing. 

Learning how to find the best CBD is an art and science. It is in my nature to research everything.  I am continually on the hunt for new products for my customers.  Let me worry about finding the best products while you learn how to use them.  There are over 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant.  Join me on this journey of discovery.

There are many ways of taking CBD for different purposes and different ailments.  I am trying to teach customers the way that works best for them.  

Pain hurts, but healing should be optional.

Prior to starting The CBD Curators, I spent 25 years in the investment industry.  I provided investigative research to hedge funds.  I am an expert in retail.
