An online Cannabis Oil Retailer has opened store in St Johns Shopping Centre, Liverpool

AN online retailer of cannabis products including cannabis oil, also known as CBD Oil has been getting ready to opening its 3d UK store within St Johns Shopping Centre, Liverpool.  the store opened, on Friday, 11 January 2019 and came only weeks after opening stores in both:- Darlington and White Rose, Leeds providing employment to 6 local people. We hear that is a family owned brand which has grown rapidly online and they now feel it is time to bring their products to the high street in their words:- "to help as many people as possible."  The shop is dedicated to exclusively retailing products containing highly concentrated amounts of CBD (Cannabidiol). This is part of the cannabis plant which carries all the benefits without getting you 'high.'

The stores owners say the products are currently sold as health supplements meaning they can not make any claims however they have seen customers using the products for things such as arthritis, anxiety, depression and much more. The stores owners commented that:- "The fact of the matter is your body has what is known as an endocannabinoid system; this system needs cannabinoids to work and without things such as CBD, the system remains completely deficient and unable to work effectively."

The endocannabinoid system has a part to play in most areas of the body including:- mood, appetite, pain reception and much more. By taking CBD supplements you are ensuring your body can repair itself as efficiently as possible.  You can find everything from:- CBD oils, e-liquids, capsules, skincare to even bath bombs in the retailers new store.  "It is a rapidly growing market and people are seeing the benefits for themselves" is a subject they commonly spoke about. Making sense of opening in a busy high-street Shopping Centre such as St Johns seems to be the best place for us to speak and educate the local community on the benefits of implementing CBD Oil into your daily life.

All products are completely legal by falling within the legal limit of 0.2% or under of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) - the part of cannabis which provides a 'high.' You will not feel drowsy and can continue about your day as normal when taking CBD products. "We are here to help" - the brands motto. They say that it is recognized that they are a customer focused business trying hard to support what their customers need in order to feel the best they can. We hear that they are excited to open their new high street store and will be providing employment to 6 people around the local area.

You can visit the store at the top floor of St Johns (Outside Home Bargains) or shop online, plus you can also go online just to check out what they have before your visit!  Should other retailers, both in Liverpool and in Southport take notice? Will this be the next step for retail? Email us your thoughts on this to:- News24@SouthportReporter.Com and let us know.

Faster flow of innovations in Merseyside healthcare

A faster flow of innovations into the NHS and social care in Merseyside has been promised by the NHS Long Term Plan. The Region's Innovation Agency and fellow Academic Health Science Networks have been highlighted as key players in speeding up the adoption of innovations in the NHS. In Merseyside, the Innovation Agency has provided funding and other support to introduce apps, technology, coaching and connections with national initiatives such as products available for free through the Innovation and Technology Payment. Local examples are the CATCH app for parents of young children, to help them self diagnose and avoid visits to A&E; smartphone technology for Liverpool domiciliary care providers; and a video outpatient service for stroke patients at St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals. The AHSNs' ground breaking work to prevent strokes in people with atrial fibrillation (AF) is given a boost in the Long Term Plan with the announcement of a package of activity to improve anticoagulation rates. Pharmacists and nurses in primary care networks will be supported to identify and treat people with high risk conditions.

The Innovation Agency was the 1st AHSN to tackle atrial fibrillation and since 2014 has distributed over 600 portable pulse testing devices; carried out an estimated 20,000 pulse tests; and identified around 600 cases of AF, avoiding potential strokes. They are also working in GP practices to review AF cases and check patients are being given the most effective treatments. Innovation Agency Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear said:- "The Long Term Plan sets out a clear way forward for organisations like ourselves focussed on improving care, achieving efficiencies and empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing. For us and other AHSNs, we see the plan as a green light to bring more organisations into the fast lane of innovation; in particular, spreading great technologies and other products rather than reinventing them in numerous places. There are fantastic innovations developed in our Region which we are helping to spread - and likewise, we are introducing products to our partners which have evidence of impact in other parts of the country. We are the honest brokers in the landscape of healthcare innovation and I am delighted to see the acknowledgement of our role in the Long Term Plan."
