48 COBB LIFE | JUNE 2019 2380 Cobb Parkway • Smyrna, Georgia • 706-693-1266 Finding relief with CBD Oil Breana Holmes is walking testimony to the medicinal effects of CBD oil. She experienced relief from her anxiety and fibromyalgia since it has relieved her pain and helped keep her calm when she begins to feel anxious. It was after discovering CBD oil and experiencing the benefits herself that she decided to open Your CBD Store in Smyrna. "I also wanted to be able to help others who are looking for alternatives as relief." She explained as she described her motives for opening her store. CBD oil has caught the media's eye as of late since it is derived from the hemp plant. It is important to note that marijuana is a type of hemp plant, but not all hemp plants contain the psychoactive chemical THC. Because CBD is not psychoactive and will not get you high, it is legal in most states, including Georgia. Currently, CBD is used by people around the world to help relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression, inflammation, and pain, as well as manage certain symptoms of epilepsy. Even for those who do not suffer from chronic conditions, CBD may still be a beneficial supplement in the same way that other natural supplements are used. There are many people who micro-dose, taking a small amount each day. The products at Your CBD Store are made with terpene-rich CBD oil harvested from industrial hemp plants. All products are third-party tested and a certificate of analysis is provided. Your CBD Store in Smyrna is located off of Cobb Parkway, near Best Buy & SunTrust Park This is a paid advertisement e Aerial Adventure Course includes four ziplines and many challenging elements, like a suspension bridge and ropes that you wouldn't consider crossing if you weren't harnessed safely to the cable system. Safety is a top priority here, and each visitor is given detailed instructions before experiencing the ziplines. A trained guide, with a pack on his back full of safety equipment and a •rst aid kit, leads each group through the course and helps any visitor that needs it. e Zipline Canopy Tour includes a few challenge elements and seven di•erent zip lines, each progressively longer or faster than the last. "Clear Maggie," calls one zipline guide to the other, announcing that the course is clear for the next zipliner. Each line is named, and "Maggie" is •tting for the line that soars through huge magnolia trees. Aƒer getting a few ziplines under their belts, visitors reach "Queen." On this line, it's too far for the guides to hear each other's yells, so they break out their radios to call the "Clear Queen" signal. e next line is called 'King,' and it takes them over Beaver Pond. ree of the seven ziplines lead guests over Beaver Pond, and "King" is the longest. One of zipline guide Adam's favorite lines is "Skimmer," which carries you just feet above Beaver Pond on the fastest line. Bordering the zipline course are two of the Nature Center's six trails: Stone Cabin Trail and Beaver Pond Trail. e latter leads around Beaver Pond, where the zipliners crisscross. On this trail, you can see the source for its name in the gnawed trees that the beavers have leƒ behind. Mark Gialanella, Community Programs Coordinator, explained: "ere's a lot of activity along the river and through the wetlands. You'll see a lot of beaver chews, where beavers have chewed through trees." In the Beaver Habitat, a beaver swims in a small pond, then climbs out to gnaw on its food of twigs and leaves. Gialanella said: "ey will chew through quite a few trees in their lifetime. eir teeth never stop growing, so they chew on the trees to eat the layer between the hard bark and the hardwood, which is very nutritious for them. is also •les down their teeth." In addition to the Beaver Habitat, the center also houses Bald Eagles, many di•erent hawks, vultures, a variety of owls and more. e enclosures give people a chance to learn about the animals indigenous to the area and to see them up close. "Every animal we have here is native to Georgia," Gialanella said. "ey are here because they are not able to be released because of some injury or illness. Or perhaps they were somebody's pet and so they can't learn to hunt for themselves." In addition to housing over 75 injured, non-
