That’s the feeling shoppers get when they visit the Green Botica Hemporium in downtown Denton. Sure, most people are aware that hemp is the most sustainable plant on the planet and has a myriad of green living and health and wellness benefits. But from clothing and apparel made almost entirely of hemp to jewelry, dog treats, bath products, lip balm, hats, and cannabidiol oil-infused coffees and teas, Botica’s treasure trove of hemp goods seemingly knows no limits.
And that has CBD enthusiasts and newcomers alike clamoring for more. “Word of mouth keeps bringing people in,” co-owner Dylan Thompson said of his store. “We’ve been open since October 19, and we already have repeat business. Not everyone knows all the good hemp provides. It’s our job to get it out there.”
It’s no secret that there’s always something special happening in Denton, especially on or near the square, where all types of restaurants and specialty shops have become household names. Green Botica is the latest addition to the city’s flare. Thompson and partner Nils Morata graduated from UNT and pride themselves on being the area’s leading authority on hemp and CBD. They worked together before at several vape shops before chasing their passion for a CBD business.
They only sell quality goods and services, and nothing that has CBD in it is sold at their location unless it first passes their strict vetting process. More importantly, their goal was to create a place where everyone feels welcome and can find the resources they need to help themselves or friends and family members with common ailments and overall wellness.
“Hemp provides so much good, but not a lot of people know that,” Thompson said. “When you come into the store, you’ll notice right away that there’s a table in the front covered with literature. We want people to be educated.”
