LYNCHBURG, Va., (WSET)— A new store that specializes in hemp products is coming to Lynchburg.
The Victorian Hempy is in the 2400 block of Rivermont Ave.
The store will sell dog treats, shampoos and candles that are infused with either hemp or CBD oil.
Owner Vicki Tipton says the oil is useful for people who deal with pain, stress or nerve damage. The owner says her mother’s battle with bone cancer inspired her to open the store.
“Hemp seed and hemp oil can be used for so many different things. It’s a healthy alternative. It’s a natural alternative and it’s not something that’s man made,” said Tipton.
The store is still under renovation. The owner hopes to have a soft opening in the next few weeks and officially open on April 1st.
