WAUKESHA — With the market for CBD oil slowly gathering momentum across the state, the city of Waukesha is about to welcome what appears to be its first CBD oil shop.

Full Spectrum Wholistic Healing, which is slated to host its grand opening Saturday at 300 W. Main St., will offer a variety of products containing cannabidiol, said Aleksandr Gerasyuta, the business’ chief operating officer.

Wisconsin recently legalized products containing a small percentage of cannabidiol, a chemical found in the marijuana plant that is believed to have palliative qualities but does not produce a psychoactive effect. In addition to CBD oil itself, Full Spectrum will sell coffee and teas containing CBD oil coffee and teas, as well as honeys, syrups and a variety of other edibles containing cannabidiol.

Gerasyuta said he got interested in healing effects of the substance after seeing how alternative methods helped his late mother-in-law ease the symptoms of her cancer treatment.

The storefront where the business is opening was last home to Waukesha Wireless.
