AMHERST, NY – Amherst Chamber of Commerce President/CEO A.J. Baynes announces the Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening of Your CBD Store, the first and only store in Williamsville solely dedicated to the purchase and sales of CBD hemp products.
Your CBD Store is a franchise and one of the leaders in the global hemp market that is rapidly growing among people who believe in its healing properties.
Its products are made with cannabidiol (CBD) which is derived from the cannabis plant without the mind-altering effects of THC. The FDA has approved the use of a CBD medication to treat certain types of epilepsy.
Maria-Esmeralda Updegraph of Lockport, General Manager of the Williamsville location, began investigating the health benefits of CBD for her nephew who is epileptic, but in the process, found the oils worked on her debilitating migraines.
“I was at the mercy of these frequent headaches that made me nauseous and unable to carry on with everyday life,” says Updegraph. “Three or four drops of CBD lotion on my pressure points, and I was back to myself in no time.”
Updegraph says her customers are looking for alternatives to prescription drugs for pain relief, especially in wake of the opiate crisis. She says the response has been so overwhelming, she and her partners have already launched a Your CBD Store in Kenmore.
Your CBD Store offers several items containing cannabidiol, such as oils, lotions, vaping liquid and water-soluble oils. It also carries products for pets.
