Business is booming for one of McAllen’s newest shops. They say their products are making a healthy impact in the lives of many here in the Rio Grande Valley.
The CBD McAllen store says their products contain Cannabidiol or CBD. It is a compound found in hemp and the marijuana plant. They are sold as an organic health alternative to some medications. The products carry zero THC and come in various forms from balms to oils to edibles and even pet products.
Operators say the products can be used to address a variety of issues including arthritis, anxiety, diabetes and autisum.
Flavio Padron, GM CBD McAllen, “Doctors actually have sent patients to us because they know it’s a good alternative for them to get rid of opoids. Perhaps or for example medicaitons for anxiety and depression those are really hard medications.”
There is no prescription required for the products but the store does recommend seeking medical advice for critical diagnosis before using the products.
