Established in 2017, the Grassy Knoll, was among West Michigan’s first CBD boutiques. Fred Cini and Janet Tombre opened the shop to help people in a natural way to alleviate pain, anxiety, insomnia, arthritis, and other aliments. “We saw a need for CBD after friends and family suffered through cancer, seizures, chronic pain, and anxiety,” Janet says.
When it opened, CBD was quite new to the community. The couple and their employees spend the first year educating customers on what CBD is, where it comes from, and how it helps the body naturally. Through this process they also learned that CBD benefits pets and the boutique now offers a wide range of products for pets.
Janet says the Grassy Knoll has been a labor of love, and they thank the Eastown community for embracing them with open arms. She says they have also given back to the community by donating thousands of dollars to the Humane Society and the Bissell Pet Foundation.
