CHARLESTON, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
The first store selling medical cannabis is opened in Kanawha County.
The products come in several different forms. From gummies and capsules to lotions.
Wendy Newman suffers from Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and anxiety.
“A lot of times I don’t even want to get out of the house because I just cringe,” Newman said,
The one thing she has found that eases her symptoms is cannabis from hemp.
“It has been helping me tremendously,” Newman said.
With the opening of Appalachian Cannabis Company on Saturday, she now has a place to get the CBD products that work for her. CBD stands for cannabidiol and unlike cannabis products that contain THC there is no high, and unlike opioids it is non-addictive.
“I don’t like the THC high, so I am so ecstatic with the hemp oil and the CBD because I don’t have to worry about getting a fuzzy head,”
