ROCHESTER - The city's first CBD store opened earlier this month at The Ridge Marketplace.
CBD American Shaman, a franchise that has several stores in New Hampshire and hundreds across the nation, is located at 150 Marketplace Blvd., in the space last occupied by the Bloom'n Cow.
The store is owned by Joe Spaulding and his wife, Megan, of Derry, along with business partner Joe Capece.
The store sells a full line of CBD products, which have become very popular health and wellness items in recent months.

CBD products contain less than the .3 percent of THC, so it is not considered cannabis, but rather hemp.
Joe Spaulding said the store also carries CBD products that contain no THC, so consumers have their choice.
Among the most popular selections at the store is VG Cloud, a water soluble, vegetable glycerin base liquid that can be taken orally, either directly by mouth or mixed into a drink, or even vaped.
"This is used for overall health as a mood stabilizer and to help with relaxation and sleep," Spaulding said today.
They also carry a CBD topical cream that is applied directly to the skin to use after a workout, said Spaulding, who added it's used for general body aches and pains.
Healthy and beauty products like soaps, bath balms and body lotions are also popular items, he said.
All of the products feature nanotechnology, which allows the CBD to break down into your body faster than other products, he said.
American Shaman also has CBD products for dogs, cats and even horses.
They include dog and cat treats flavored with beef and cheese and CBD liniments for horses.
Spaulding said that they're happy to offer customers free samples so they can try them before they buy them.
"We've had great success with that, they usually come back and say they liked it and will buy more," he said.
