On Saturday Hemp Geek held their Grand Opening for their new CBD based product store.
The store’s location at 1332 Upper Front Street in the Town of Chenango shares a plaza with subway and Jackson Hewitt Tax Service.
Hemp is one of the fastest growing agriculture industries in the Southern Tier and Hemp Geek’s Co-owner Sami Abdelazim says they try to source their products from nationally recognized brands that also do lab testing so that consumers can know that they are getting top of the line CBD products.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is a naturally occurring compound found in hemp and cannabis.
New York State law requiresÂ industrial hemp contain less than .3% THC or tetra-hydrocannabinol, which is what produces the feeling of a “high” in marijuana.
Abdelazim says, that CBD is a natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs helping out with things like pain, anxiety, and inflammation.
Customers can get CBD products in many forms including gummies, lotions, vasoline, as well as vaporizer juice.
