Many North Texas CBD American Shaman locations are banding together to donate medical-grade cleansing wash to local first responders.

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

“What we did as a company is halt our production of CBD because we have the equipment and the right solution in place,” said Chad LeClaire, owner of CBD American Shaman of Keller. “We are using an ingredient that is known to kill viruses and is used in hospitals to clean up after patients.”

The manufacturing part was easy, LeClaire said. The challenge has been finding small two-ounce bottles to fill with hand sanitizer.

CBD American Shaman stores in Keller, North Keller and Roanoke began receiving shipments of medical-grade cleansing wash at the end of March, he said. Since then, local stores have donated gallons of sanitizer and cleansing wash to first responders in Keller, Southlake and Dallas, LeClaire said.


As a health and wellness store, CBD American Shaman is considered an essential business, and he said it is important for the store to work to protect customers, health care providers and first responders.

“We are trying to get it in these folks’ hands because many are not well-protected, and they are trying to do their jobs,” LeClaire said. “Police and fire departments we have interacted with are greatly appreciative. Every little bit helps.”

Along with health and wellness products to strengthen the immune system or manage pain, among other things, customers will receive free sanitizing wash with every purchase while supplies last, LeClaire said.

Stores in Keller and Roanoke are also offering free delivery, curbside pickup and takeout options.

“We really want to let the community know we are in it together, and we will get to the other side.”
