Galvin Road hemp shop to sell CBD oil (www.omaha.com)

  • American Shaman, a store that sells hemp-based oils, lotions, capsules and other hemp products is scheduled to open Friday at 1503 Galvin Road S.
  • Among its products is Cannabidiol oil, popularly known as CBD oil, which has been at the forefront of national efforts to legalize medicinal marijuana.
  • Medical authorities remain skeptical about the touted benefits of marijuana- or hemp-based medicinal products, although a growing body of anecdotal evidence from people claiming to have benefited from CBD oil has kept the issue alive.
  • A letter to Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson, from American Shaman attorney Sean Pickett, said Queen’s products are similar to many commonly sold hemp-based products.
