"Everyone who comes in is happier," said Donald Ince, the owner of Manhattan's CBD American Shaman.
The store came to Manhattan in October 2017 from the community came steadily, Ince said.
"I think it will affect the city in a positive light," said Brad Benco, American shaman employee.
Benco said many students during the past week would seek a way to help study because American shaman provides a "shot" of CBD oil in the water for students struggling with focusing. CBD stands for cannabidiol, a substance found in cannabis plants.
Students are not the only ones to benefit from the facilities that CBD oil can provide. Arlene, an American shamanist, said she shops in Manhattan because she struggles with the way her painkillers affect her.
"I get sick from my painkillers," said Arlene.
Arlene has multiple diagnoses She said that CBD oil allows her to control her pain and still be able to function in everyday life.
She is also one of the various individuals visiting the American Shaman site from outside Manhattan to get help from CBD Oil.
CBD oil can help reduce pain, pressure and anxiety, Ince said, but there is still a stigma surrounding the image of the marijuana leaf.
Benco said that's true, but he thinks that American shaman has helped to make the stigma disappear.
