COLORADO: A pair of Colorado Springs paramedics will open a first of its kind hemp store and grow in Lake George this weekend.
Visitors to Granny’s High Altitude Super Hemp store will find owners Karen Kinne and Jo Dee Weaver eager to tell all about the many uses of the plant. Bath soaps that leave you feeling like you’ve had a 90 minute massage, hemp and cotton blend bathrobes that get softer the more you wash them.
While both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis family of plants, hemp doesn’t have the intoxicating levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found in its more popular cousin.
“(Customers) want relief, they want relief from their pain, they want relief from their stress and anxiety, but they don’t want to get high,” Kinne explained.
