A new shop that will sell health-based cannabis products is opening in Guernsey today.

The Original Alternative has opened in the North Plantation after restrictions were lifted on the sale of specific types of Cannabidiol oil products (CBD).

The shop's owner Tina Bolding campaigned for the products to be sold in the island after her husband died of lung cancer in 2016.

She describes the opening of the shop as 'pioneering'.

In February, Guernsey's government announced that CBD oil with a concentration of less than 3% by weight would not be illegal to possess or supply.
