As local cases of the coronavirus continue to emerge, CBD American Shaman is using its manufacturing plant in Kansas City to make hand sanitizer and a cleansing wash to try to help slow the spread of the virus.

CBD American Shaman locations in Grapevine and Southlake received shipments of the cleansing wash earlier this week and are expecting to receive the hand sanitizer next week.

As sanitizer and cleaners become harder to find and proper disinfecting becomes more important to fight the coronavirus, providing hand sanitizer and cleaner is something CBD American Shaman thought was important, said Samit Patel, one of the owners of CBD American Shaman of Southlake.

The CBD franchise was uniquely positioned to step in and help, Patel said. The ingredients being used for the hand sanitizer were already in production to extract the CBD, or cannabidiol, from the hemp flower, and then the main substance of the cleansing wash was also being used to disinfect the CBD, he said.

“We already have both products that we were using consistently,” Patel said. “We just basically had to transition in the formulation to help everyday consumers that will need it during this time.”

The cleansing wash is made from hypochlorous acid that is nontoxic and environmentally friendly, Patel said. In addition to being highly effective against viruses and bacteria, it is a weak acid naturally produced by the human body’s white blood cells. It can even be used directly on food as a cleaner, he said.

The Southlake store is selling individual orders of 4-ounce bottles and bulk orders of gallon-size containers of the cleansing wash for $5 and $59.99, respectively, Patel said. CBD American Shaman of Grapevine is giving away individual orders of the cleansing wash for free with any other purchase during the month of April, owner Lance Griffin said. He is donating his bulk sizes of the cleansing wash to Grapevine’s police and fire departments and other local first responders, he said.

Many North Texas CBD American Shaman locations are also banding together to donate the cleansing wash to local first responders, as well as the Dallas police and fire Departments, Griffin said.

“We’ve tried to become more of a local community partner from a health and wellness standpoint,” Griffin said. “That doesn't just stop at CBD. We have the capability, and so we feel the social responsibility to do what we can to help, especially in times like this.”
