A new store that focuses on products derived from cannabis plants and the kratom tree has opened at one of the busiest intersections on the Andersonville strip. Located in the storefront that used to house Homemade Pizza Co. at 5303 N. Clark, this will be the company’s second location.

The store, which is simply named CBD Kratom, carries medicinal and relaxation products such as lotions, oils, muscle patches and capsules. They also carry edible products such as gummies, candies, peanut butter and doggie treats.

According to the company’s website, CBD or Cannabidiol is an herbal, natural and classical cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. There are over 60 cannabinoids that have been isolated from the plant and CBD accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.

CBD, which can also be derived from hemp, should not be confused with another cannabinoid derived from the plant – Tetrahydracannabinol (THC). THC is mostly illegal in the US, and it carries the substance that makes people feel ‘stoned’. The owners of the new store claim that no items they carry are over the legal limit of THC levels.

Kratom (also known as Mitragyna Speciosa) on the other hand, is a tropical deciduous and evergreen tree in the coffee family which is native to Southeast Asia in the Indochina and Malaysia floristic regions. It has been regularly used for medicinal purposes in that region to aid in pain relief, energy, relaxation and euphoria.

The store, which is open 8 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, will also carry other types of supplements such as kanna, lotus, kava, turmeric and aloe vera.
