The opportunity to return to Michigan and open their own business was enough to lure the Diebolts home from Pittsburgh. That business is one they’re excited to launch in Plymouth.
The Northville couple recently opened Your CBD Store at 467 Forest Ave., inside where the Old World Olive Press used to operate. While in Pittsburgh, they noticed several Your CBD Store’s open and thought they would give it a try back home in Michigan.
“The last year we started considering moving back,” she said. “This brand, Your CBD Store … they started popping up all over Pittsburgh.
“So we took notice of that.”
The two began using CBD and became big believers in the product before changing career paths to own their own business.
The store opened in DecemberÂ and offers several CBD products, including water-soluble CBD products, oil tinctures and other edible ways to ingest the CBD. It carriesÂ a line for pet usage, as well.
Proponents of the product claim it can be an alternative relief for various kinds of aches and pains, though it’s still so new to the market â€” CBD was made available after the legalization of hemp in 2018 â€” there’s no real consensus among medical professionals over its use by the masses yet.
Your CBD Store operates more than 600 stores across the United States, though just two are located in Michigan: in addition to the Plymouth store, another operates in Sterling Heights.
Shops that sell CBD, or cannabidiol, have popped up across the region since it became legal at the end of 2018. Dedicated shops just selling CBD have arrived in communities such as Farmington and Highland Township, and other stores carry CBD products in addition to their regular stock.
Kate Diebolt said Your CBD Store isn’t like other stores, as they hope to blend into the city and become part of the fabric that is downtown Plymouth.
“There’s a lot of CBD that’s offered in other storefronts,” Kate Diebolt said. “What makes this unique is that we’re really set up to be part of the community.”
When looking for a place to set up shop, they looked across the region before deciding on downtown Plymouth. When Old World Olive Press’s space became open on Forest Avenue, the couple jumped at the opportunity. They spent weeks renovating the space beginning in November, refreshing the interior and opening in early December.
“We couldn’t have been more proud to find a space in Plymouth,” Jim Diebolt said. “Easily the best form of advertising we’ve done is put the shop where we have.”
The couple hopes to provide answers to shoppers’ questions about CBD and hope to have educational events in the future.
“In general, we’re not only here to get the products in the community’s hands, but to get them to understand what they can do and that there are alternatives out there,” Jim Diebolt said.
The store is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
