New CBD Store Now Open in Brainerd


There is now a new CBD Store located in Brainerd. Alexa Dobberstein and Karrli Johansson are two sisters and nurses that first started with a CBD store in Otsego, MN, near the twin cities. As of this summer, they now have 4 locations, including Brainerd, Otsego, East Grand Forks, Moorhead, and new stores opening soon in Fargo, ND. After personally using this CBD line, they were given an opportunity to open their own location and didn’t have to think twice about it knowing how much they and their families had benefited from the products. They knew they wanted to share it with others for potential relief.

Alexa and Karrli also know that there is much research that still needs to be done, but the personal testimonies that they hear from customers are enough to know it’s helping bring people relief. On a daily basis, they get feedback from customers on Facebook, by e-mail, text messages, and from their website. So what are they getting relief for? Alexa and Karrli will tell you anyone can use CBD; while many people will seek out CBD for the top concerns of anxiety, depression, and pain, others will use it for general health support, ADHD, autism, digestive concerns, skin conditions, and any concerns related to inflammation like arthritis. They even have products for pets!

All of the products in the store are third party tested, organic, and grown from U.S. hemp. They know these are essential components to note about their products since the FDA does not currently regulate CBD. However, it is legal at both the state and federal level. They carry a wide variety of products from water solubles and tinctures to pain relief creams, vape products, edibles like hard candy and gummies, coffee, tea, skin care lines, and pet products.

On a daily basis, samples are available of multiple products including their water soluble and relief creams so that customers can try the products before purchasing. Alexa and Karrli can attest to how many times customers have sampled products and walk out feeling better than how they came in. They also have an awesome rewards program called FiveStar and encourage people to check it out; in store, customers are able to get 10% off their first purchase with FiveStar. 

As nurses, they are proud to be able to have an opportunity to support alternative health options for the local community and surrounding area. They encourage customers to check out their Facebook page for education, product knowledge and promotions, as well as giveaways. They also have an active website that has educational information and products to purchase. Lastly, Alexa and Karrli want the community to know that they are open to educational presentations and offer these for free of cost. If you are interested, please reach out to them at:
