FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The CBD Store of Fort Wayne is preparing to celebrate their one year anniversary on April 8th. 

Cory Vonderau, the owner, said the CBD industry is booming, and customers come back with stories of how it has changed their lives. 

”The feedback from customers has been excellent. Our goal is to just keep teaching, informing, doing what we do best," he said. 

The store has expanded on north Clinton and a second location opened on the south west side. 

”We’ve blown out the wall, now we’re twice the size. We probably started out with about six companies, now we’re working with about 30.”

You can get CBD products from the oil in a bottle to bath products, candy and drinks, and even the smokeable flower, but that flower still has controversy surrounding it. 

”The flower has way more beneficials than just the oil, because when you take it and extract it, now you’re losing beneficials," Vonderau said. 

The hemp flower has been bred to have high levels of CBD with only trace amounts of THC. Smoking it can sometimes offer users faster or more targeted relief.

”You do not get high off of it. You can smoke a pound of it, and it’s totally fine," Vonderau said.

But getting caught with it could still theoretically get someone in trouble, because it's hard to tell apart from pot unless it's tested. 

While Vonderau said the industry still has some room for growth, he swears by his products and is celebrating success this month. 

”April is Stress Awareness month, so since it is our one year anniversary, every day of the month we’re going to have a different special," Vonderau said. 

You can find those specials, and more information about CBD oil on their Facebook Page.
