Rob McClure will open Your CBD Store Troy at 1802 W. Main St. and said it will be the first dedicated CBD store in Miami County.

In 2019, McClure opened his first shop, called Your CBD Store Centerville, at 5820 Wilmington Pike in the Sugarcreek Crossing retail center. The space previously housed VaporFi, a vapor shop, to which McClure has no connection.

He said most of his customers are looking for alternatives to prescription drugs and most are elderly or above the age of 40.

“They are looking to limit the long lists of medications that come with a long list of side effects. The response has been so overwhelming that we are launching stores around the country now, and our success has been the quality of our formulation, our extensive third party laboratory testing, and the fact that our hemp is 100% organic,” McClure said.

Hemp plants from which CBD oil is derived do not contain significant quantities of THC, the psychoactive, “high”-producing compound that marijuana plants contain in impactful amounts. The Your CBD Store Centerville shop’s motto, found atop its Facebook page, is, “Health without the high.”

SunMed’s web site does, however, include the disclaimer that, “At no point can we guarantee that a false positive on a drug test will not occur,” because the difference between CBD oil and THC are difficult to distinguish in drug tests. “We do not recommend you take the product if this is a sensitive issue at your workplace,” the web site says.
