LAFAYETTE, La. (The Advertiser)- Travis Deyoung wants to erase the negative stigma behind marijuana. For him, 420 no longer belongs to the stoner.
Instead, the numbers mark the day — Saturday — he’s opening his Cajun Cannabis, a cafe that sells coffee and a retail store offering CBD.
Deyoung, 31, is the latest retailer to market CBD (cannabidiol) products advertised to help treat insomnia, anxiety, pain and other ailments.
But Cajun Cannabis, located at 3802 Johnston St., isn’t a marijuana dispensary. All of the products in Cajun Cannabis are made from hemp, not marijuana. Nothing sold produces psychoactive effects, unlike THC, the compound in marijuana that gets users high.
Anyone 21 or older can buy the products.
