A national chain retailer that sells nothing but CBD products will open in Amherst Friday.
Your CBD Store, at 8050 Transit Road, is the town's first standalone CBD merchant, according to the Amherst Chamber of Commerce. It will sell products made with the cannabis extract cannabidiol, including hemp oil, gum drops, creams, tinctures and pet products.
The store is open to the public and no medical marijuana card is required.
CBD is purported to ease inflammation, pain, nausea and seizures. CBD sales are expected to hit $22 billion by 2022, according to cannabis industry analyst firm Brightfield Group.
The chain was founded by Rachael Quinn, who first used CBD to treat her Crohn's disease. It has nearly 200 stores across the country.
