Chris Yeager just opened Appalachian Cannabis Company in Cross Lanes W. VA. His store focuses entirely on CBD, the compound in cannabis that will not make you high. Yeager moved to CO for 3 years in order to immerse himself in cannabis and learn all he could. In W. VA, medical marijuana is not legal, but hemp products are so Yeager applied for his hemp license. He hopes that his store will help people to manage pain and reduce the drug problems caused by opiate use. Yeager hopes that he will also be able to educate others on valid uses of cannabis.
- The Appalachian Cannabis Company is newly opened, offering products that, unlike medical marijuana, can be purchased without a prescription.
- CBD is a cannabis-derived compound that can effectively treat pain, inflammation and seizures.
- Because CBD is not psychoactive, users do not get high, an effect which store owners maintain can assist in stemming the tide of the drug epidemic.
“Despite his efforts with lawmakers, Yeager began to feel like he was hitting a brick wall. He picked up and moved to Colorado with plans to learn about the cannibas industry and bring that knowledge back to West Virginia.”
