Crossing the Sherman Minton Bridge from Louisville, KY and entering New Albany on I-64 its hard not to take notice of the large billboard that showcases the image of an old fashion ice cream cone. It also has the stand out phrase “Butt Drugs”.
In life, many of the opportunities that come your way are the result of the people you choose to surround yourself with. At Evercure Farms we are very fortunate to have friends at Butt Drugs. Katie, Trista, Katie H, Lauren and the rest of the team there are truly blessings to us. They consistently recommend Evercure CBD products to their customers. This comes after doing extensive due diligence on other brands available in the marketplace. As a small family pharmacy, they supply on high quality products and services with authentic personal flare. The hospitality at Butt Drugs is second to none (I highly recommend their hand-made, machine whipped peanut butter malts...even comes with a cherry on top!!!). Another factor that led to our partnership in business is the fun atmosphere they have created with all kinds of local novelty items available for purchase. Their marketing is so creative it even landed one of their TV commercials on the Ellen Degeneres Show (check out this classic....). You can’t help, but take notice of how Butt Drugs has creatively incorporated the Butt puns into an effective marketing strategy. We tend to due the same thing at Evercure dropping a lot of stoner puns; “high” influences and references. Butt Drugs is also big on education and helping their customers make informed decisions.
About a year ago we co-hosted a CBD Seminar “Higher Learning” at Butt Drugs. One of the questions that Katie wanted to make sure we addressed was: Can taking CBD products cause me to fail a drug test? We prepared the following response in order to help educate the public. This is something we still stand by today and will share with you here:
Important Information Regarding CBD Use and Drug Testing
Since beginning our journey into hemp farming and CBD products, we here at Evercure Farms have fielded countless questions regarding all aspects of the business and our products. We welcome all questions our customers, distributors and the public may have at any time.
One of the most frequently asked questions we hear is “Can taking CBD causeme to fail a drug screen?” We always answer this query with the sometimes frustrating response of “It depends.” When we give this reply, it is not to be evasive or change the subject, it is simply the most accurate response we can give without knowing more about a person’s history.
Evercure Farms has always used an organic cold ethanol extraction process to create our products. We specifically chose this method because it is the only process that truly preserves the flavors, aromas, and beneficial compounds within the plant without altering the ratios and relationships they share in nature. The end result is a natural product that provides the benefits of CBD in concert with the other healing compounds in the plant. The combined impact of the CBD and plant compounds is referred to as the “entourage effect.”
ll of our products contain less than 0.3% THC and are 100% compliant with federal law and 50 state legal. However, these small trace amounts of THC may still be detected by drug screens under certain circumstances due to the variations in metabolism, body chemistry and testing methods used. The vast majority of CBD users have no problems and pass drug screens without any issues. We count amongour satisfied customers police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses, pilots, and professional drivers. All of whom, like everyone else, can’t afford to lose their livelihood. We advise folks to notify their employers or testing agencies about their use of our products prior to any possible drug test to prevent the chance of a false positive being returned. Should a false positive be encountered, we recommend our customers make their employers and test facility aware of their CBD use and to request a repeat screening with the presence of CBD factored into the test methods.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us! We are here to help. It’s what we love to do!
All the best,
The Evercure Farms Family
For those individuals that remain nervous about testing positive on a drug screening, we added a broad spectrum CBD product to our product line up in 2020. It has non-detectable levels of THC under 0.10%. This is a sure fire way to avoid “testing hot” at the lab. Take the trek to Butt Drugs in Corydon Indiana (https://www.buttdrugs.com/). You can find all of our Evercure CBD products there, including the 900 mg THC free tincture. Before you leave be sure to grab yourself one of their signature CBD Lip Balms, BUTTercream Cookie. This flavor is sure to bring joy to your lips! (Pictured: Butt Drugs Classic Storefront in Downtown Corydon, IN)
