For Michael Lanoue, who owns and operates The CBD Store, this business in Warwick, is so much more than a retail store, it is something personal. Just over a year ago, Mike’s wife was involved in serious accident that left her with debilitating injuries, chronic pain and anxiety. After months of searching for relief from medications that severely impacted her quality of life, Mike and his wife began exploring the option of CBD-infused products. There was urgency in their search. It was emotional and important. It was personal.
Once Mike’s wife discovered the benefits of CBD, their journey as a family took a different direction. It was no longer just a matter of finding relief and respite from pain and anxiety, it was a matter of sharing their experience with a whole audience of fellow sufferers. Michael went to work researching everything he could find about CBD and the body’s endocannabinoid system. He wondered, how could something that is naturally-occurring, non-addictive, non-psychoactive, and safe, not be available to all who are suffering?
His mission to spread the word and to educate the public about the countless therapeutic benefits of CBD-products began to consume him. He had seen the impact on his wife and knew that he could spread that very personal message to others by creating a place where people could come to learn about CBD from a trusted source; a place that sold only the highest-grade, triple- tested products on the market. In fact, he even worked with professionals to develop his own brand of CBD products called CanameD®.
In April of 2019, Michael opened his busy store on Post Road. On any given day, there are streams of people coming in to learn more about CBD. Mike is a fountain of knowledge. His personal experience and his extensive studies make him a reliable and educated source. Customers come seeking relief from everything from the anxiety and pain that plagued his wife to stress, depression, migraines, PTSD, arthritis and so much more. Michael dedicates whatever time you need to learn about all the many products he sells in his store.
For Michael Lanuoe, The CBD Store affords him another rare opportunity to give back. While many of his competitors see the profit in this unregulated and growing industry, Michael sees a way to “return the favor.” Since the store’s opening this past April, he has donated over $3000 to several organizations, including the Warwick Animal Shelter, the Muscular Dystrophy Society and to veterans at Post 183. His mission continues.
