lot of kids dream of going into the family business, but when Cory Thomason was just a young boy, he actually helped dig Cory Lake Isles, his namesake. His Dad, Gene Thomason, developed the community with his growing son at his side. Cory pointed out, “My daycare from the time I was about 5 to 18 years old, was Cory Lake Isles. By the time I was 10, I’d been on every piece of machinery at the site.” Fast forward a few years and Cory now owns Cory Lake Isles Realty. He was born and raised in Tampa and attended Florida State University, earning a double major in Finance & Real Estate. Cory mentioned, “I have a beautiful three year old daughter and my parents, Gene and Betty Thomason, still own a home in Cory Lake Isles. I helped my Dad develop this community so I’ve been in pretty much every house in Cory Lake Isles.” When asked what he enjoys most about his business he replied, “I love helping people & I really enjoy real estate. I don’t find it to be work - it’s just second nature to me. It’s in my DNA. Each day, I try to reinvent real estate to make it easier and easier for the buyer and seller, all while working on building an empire.” When Cory isn’t helping the community with their real estate needs, you can find him playing golf, fishing, hunting and skiing. In 1996, he participated in the first Bass Tournament held in Cory Lake Isles. Cory has won many fishing tournaments, including Tarpon Tournaments in Boca Grande. At The Wild, Wild West Kingfish Tournament, he won a boat as first prize. Cory Lake Isles Realty is a boutique real estate brokerage that specializes in residential home buying and selling in Cory Lake Isles. Cory, who has been a real estate broker for over 18 years, also handles real estate from Pasco County all the way to the beaches. PALMS MAGAZINE

What is all this talk about

CBD?

C

annabidiol, better known as CBD, may be one of the most broadly therapeutic plant extracts of our time. It comes from the cannabis sativa plant, but our CBD is not from the marijuana plant, it comes industrial hemp. This distinction is what makes the extract legal in all 50 states as well as increases the medical applications due to hemps natural chemical makeup compared to marijuana that is high in the psychoactive compound THC9. Along with a lengthy list of therapeutic properties, it comes with the backing of the medical community, the World Health Organization. The importation of hemp products has been legal for some time, which has allowed a large amount of scientific research to be performed on CBD itself. Well over 1,500 peerreviewed scientific articles have been published identifying CBD as a potentially beneficial for a host of common ailments including all varieties of inflammation, pain management, treatment of cancers, prevention of Alzheimer’s, relief from anxiety, eradication of acne, epilepsy and the list goes on…

To understand how CBD exerts its effects, it is first important to understand our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is an entire system within the human (and most animals) just like the respiratory or digestive system. It is made up of the endocannabinoid molecules made up by the body itself (yes, our bodies make their own cannabinoids, just like the cannabis plant!) the receptors for these molecules, and the enzymes which create and break down the endocannabinoids. From a natural, therapeutic perspective, there is no question that CBD and hemps residual cannabinoids together may very well support the body’s healing in a great number of ways. Your CBD Store carries the highest quality CBD products produced by SunMed. We control the production from soil to oil and have third party testing at every step of the way. SunMeds proprietary combinations of terpenes and advanced extraction process ensures that our CBD products are cutting edge in the industry. With CBD being sold everywhere (it’s like the new Avocado Toast!) it’s important to know that you are getting a high-quality CBD product, and that’s just hard to know when you buy online. It’s also great to have someone to discuss your situation with and to be able to have your questions answered and help with choosing the best products and dosage for you. Your CBD Store St. Petersburg is comfortable and calming, like a spa. Clients can come in to relax, enjoy a sample and have all of their questions answered by the knowledgeable and caring staff. “My mission is simple. To education the neighborhood on what CBD can do for them and help people feel better” Michelle Tolan, the Store Owner explains, “My clients come back again and again to enjoy the atmosphere and to let me know how much better they feel. I cannot imagine anything more rewarding! CBD is truly life changing, for myself, my clients and even for my dog.” PALMS MAGAZINE


As well as helping people CBD is also excellent for pets. Most Animals have the same endocannabinoid system as humans. Pets can be terrified of fireworks and New Years’ Eve can the scariest night of the year. The tinctures and treats fly off the shelves during these holidays and in the summer during thunderstorm season. Pets also suffer from inflammation, itchy’s and bad habits like constant licking. CBD is also great for aging dogs to take on a daily basis. Michelle Tolan is a Certified and Accredited Wellness Coach and owner of Your CBD Store St Petersburg. Call for a free consultation or just stop by for some free samples. 1219 Dr. MLK Jr. Street North St. Petersburg, FL 33701 727-767-0596 stpete@cbdrx4u.com stpete.cbdrx4u.com

Lawn &

MAY Plantings & Lawn Maintenance Plan to beautify your landscape with these tips for what to plant in APRIL and lawn maintenance measures! Excerpts are taken from http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu courtesy of University of Florida IFAS Extension.

What to Plant

Annuals: Plants that can take summer heat include salvia, torenia, wax begonia, coleus, and ornamental pepper. Bulbs: Some lilies do better when their roots are crowded. Try planting Amazon, Aztec, and Clivia lilies in containers to increase blooming.

What to Do

Pests: Watch for thrips, scale, and mites on ornamental plants because they become more active in warm weather. Gardenias: Distinguish between the normal yellowing of older leaves and the yellowing of new growth, which usually indicates a micronutrient deficiency. Oleanders: Inspect chewed or ragged leaves for oleander caterpillars at work. Lawns: Watch for damage from chinch bugs in St. Augustine grass and begin scouting for newly hatched mole crickets in bahia grass lawns. Prevent or minimize disease by following proper cultural practices. Lawns: Apply fertilizer after new growth has started which is usually early April in north-central and central Florida, Choose a fertilizer (not a "weed and feed") with little or no phosphorus unless a soil test indicates the need for it. A fertilizer with controlled-release nitrogen yields longer-lasting results. Trees: Prepare for hurricane season by checking trees for damaged or weak branches and pruning if needed. Hire an ISAcertified arborist.
