It looks like Loudoun County is getting another retail shop devoted to selling hemp-derived CBD products. It’s called Your CBD Store and is part of a nationwide chain of CBD stores.
According to the company’s website, an Ashburn location of Your CBD Store is in the works for the University Commerce Center off George Washington Boulevard on Ashburn’s north side. That’s north of Route 7 near GW’s Loudoun campus.
Your CBD Store carries a variety of tinctures, edibles and topicals that contain CBD and purport to have a variety of health benefits. They even carry CBD products for pets.
If you’re not clear what CBD is — and apparently lots of people are not — here’s how an article from the Harvard Medical School describes it: “CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a ‘high.'”
This won’t be the first hemp-focused store in Loudoun. District Hemp Botanicals opened in Leesburg in 2019 and there are a number of Loudoun County farms that grow hemp and produce a variety CBD products.
Your CBD Store has hundreds of locations in some 39 states. No word yet on when the Your CBD Store will open in Ashburn. The website just says “coming soon.” We’ve sent messages to the company’s PR folks and are waiting for a response.
