A CBD boutique is coming soon to Reston’s Lake Anne Plaza.

OmBaked is expected to open in the spring. It’s founded Radhika Murari, a Restonian who moved to the community in 1991.

Murari says she wanted to open the company’s first retail location to be surrounded by like-minded business owners who support the local community.

“Lake Anne Plaza is the heart of Reston and embodies the principles of Live, Work, Play upon which Reston was founded,” Murari wrote in a statement.

Here’s more from the company on what they plan to offer:

OmBaked will sell CBD products that help us Move Better, Focus Better, Relax Better, Sleep Better, and Eat Better. We will also sell CBD products for furbabies. The products will cover the whole range; from bath bombs, body lotion, soft gels, and beverages.

Murari is also behind the concept OmMade peanut butter, a venture that recently received a state and local grant. The business features gluten-free peanut butter that uses local state peanuts to create flavors.

OmBaked is a storefront for the OmMade brand.

The Reston location is an extension of Murari’s effort to invest in the economy and health of her local community, according to the company.
