A store that primarily specializes in CBD oil is having its grand opening Monday at Shoppes West near Grand Prairie.
General Manager Ryan Harvey says the CBD products they sell can provide you with natural healing.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in marijuana. Unlike marijuana, the products at the CBD store will not get you high and are entirely legal.
There are currently stores located in Galesburg, Iowa City, and other locations.
Harvey chose to open another store in Peoria to inform the community about an alternative way to get relief without using pharmaceuticals.
“We want people to be able to find relief in something that isn’t going to give us other side effects and other problems,” Harvey said.
Jaimmie Harvey, a member of his family who is also a CBD store owner said she would love for people to stop taking pain pills and use a healthier method for relief.
“CBD is a natural thing just like spinach, you know it’s grown from the earth and it’s good for you,” she said.
CBD products are even pet-friendly.
“A lot of people that have dogs have separation anxiety, trouble eating, um dogs with tumors. We’ve seen some really amazing results with some of our customers’ pets,” Ryan said.
However, they said that they cannot make any medical claims and can only provide the feedback they receive from their customers.
