St. Albans, Vt. - St. Albans is now home to a hemp store.
Green Mountain Hemp Company held its grand opening last weekend.
The owner, Michele Waters, say the shop started after her husband found relief for his back pain using hemp, specifically CBD, a compound found in the plant.
All of the products contain CBD and could help people cope with a variety of issues.
"It helps with inflammation and anxiety, over-firing of pain, blood sugar problems, blood pressure problems," said Michele Waters. "These things have been alleviated by taking the plant extract and putting it into different products. So some people can supplement their body and take pain cream and put it directly on a problem."
The shop sells CBD in:
- bath soaks
- vape pens
- pet CBD
- body and massage oils
- maple candy
- and its newest product: Boroughs chocolates.
The store is also home to the VT Grow Shop, providing resources to growers.
