Hemp Geek on Upper Front Street in the Town of Chenango joins other shops starting to open around the region to sell product that contain a substance commonly referred to as CBD that is found in hemp and cannabis and is purported to have healing and soothing properties without producing the high of still-illegal marijuana.

A similar shop has been open for several months in Ithaca.

Products that are advertised to sooth stress, treat inflammation and pain symptoms associated with maladies like arthritis, headache and circulatory issues are sold in several forms including supplements and lotions.
