Americans are looking for different alternatives for medicine. People will do and try anything to optimize their health. CBD is nothing new to the market, it's a chemical we have been using for a long time.

Your CBD Store is located at 2909 S. Western St., they sell a variety of CBD products like topical creams, oils, edibles, and honey sticks. They also have a section for pets. You must be 18 or older to purchase products from the store.

The atmosphere is relaxing and the workers at the store are looking to educate and help those who are looking for alternatives. Pain medication can be very hard on the body if taken for long periods of time and this can help combat chronic pain without having side effects.

President Trump signed a bill legalizing Hemp. Hemp plants are the same species as marijuana but contain none of the psychoactive compounds that get people 'stoned'. According to the Farm Bill, hemp plants will now be classified as an agricultural product.

While this type of alternative medicine is taboo in our city of Amarillo, the business is booming. They are looking to open more stores in the West Texas region by the end of the year. It's nice to see something progressive in this region of Texas.

Cannabidiol is found is cannabis plants. According to the Project CBD site,

"Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses."
