High Spirits With Dacha

Competition time - tell us where they will run!

Does CBD make you high? This is probably the question that we are asked the most.

Sometimes I find myself still being surprised by this question, simply because I’m knee-deep in the CBD realm.

The more people we chat to, the more we realise how many education opportunities lie ahead of us. We’re excited that you can be part of the journey, writes Shannon Smith.

A few people who joined us on this venture also had no idea about the real benefits of CBD up until we arrived in their lives.

What could be frustrating – entering a market where you constantly have to explain who and what you are – is actually turning out to be a fun experience.

Apart from my one jaw-dropping answer in jest during a meeting “Yes, actually – I’m high right now,” – We have discovered the many different opportunities to help provide information through the numerous industries that can benefit from the addition of CBD as well as hemp. This means that there are literally no limits.

Last week, while chatting to our sponsored jockey, Rachel Venniker, she was telling us about how she got a face injury from one of her horses.

Being an ambassador for our CBD Wellness Range, Bush, she had been applying our CBD Lip Balm continuously.

She said her sores healed faster than ever and she explained how she’s astounded by the product. We had similar feedback from someone who applied our CBD Tissue Oil to their post-surgery wounds.

We’re not just saying this because we’re biased and love our brand – It’s because CBD is nature’s healer. In fact, Sports Nutritionists are now recommending  CBD to help rebuild muscles and maintain focus during training.

So, does CBD make you high?

It’s making us high with glee, and keeping our spirits high, because we can see the potential the future holds for the industry and for the health of the nation. South Africa’s exposure to CBD and hemp is slightly behind the rest of the world, but our team at Dacha believes that with our collective resources, minerals and climate, Africa has the potential to soar.

It all starts with education and exposure. This is why we are grateful for opportunities like this with Sporting Post, because we can have some fun with the Dacha-sponsored horses, and we can get your input and feedback.

CBD can go in your smoothie, under your tongue, on your skin, in your hair, on a wound, in yourtea and you can even give it to your dog.

One of our most heart warming stories is that of a lady we met by chance who has a beautiful Collie with bladder cancer. Her dog was given 6 weeks to live. Part of our R&D, she gladly accepted a cocktail to give her dog daily to attempt to combat the illness. That was about 6 months ago, and both Collie and Mommy are happy and well.

Dacha means ‘Dagga’ in Swahili. Waaaay back when the Koisan were still roaming our soil, they grew wild ‘Dagga’ and used it for medicinal purposes. With our roots and beliefs deep in Africa, we decided that Dacha (pronounced Dasha) is suitable for our story.


Our story’s spirit literally runs far and wide, because we have our Spirit of Dacha running on Monday 1 November.

Today  we have So Dacha and the naughty beautiful beast, Shavout on track. Silvan Park was a reserve runner and has been withdrawn.

By now, I don’t need to explain to you – get your betting on, get your spirits high and stand a chance to win a Dacha Hamper.
