WAUSAU, WI (WSAU-WAOW) — The competition for where to purchase CBD products is ramping up after hemp was removed from the Federal Controlled Substance Act in December of 2018.
Kwik Trip announced this past week they’ll begin selling CBD products at their locations, bringing more competition to the Wausau area market. Two other locations that sell CBD products in the area are Your CBD in Weston and Family Video in Wausau and Weston.
Family Video started selling CBD products a few months ago and general manager Jordan Sheets told WAOW-TV that he’s noticed an increase in popularity in the CBD items they sell. „We sell oils and edibles in the form of CBD gummy bears. We even print out packets to give to customers that has information as to where it comes from.”
And while Kwik Trip is now adding CBD products to their stores, other local stores like Your CBD in Weston aren’t all that concerned. Owner Morgan Trone says stores like hers give customers a more personalized and informational experience that sets them apart from places like Kwik Trip.
„There’s not the education and the information based on the CBD and hemp. And I think a lot of the people coming into us are looking for that education on CBD, like asking a lot of really great questions.”
Both stores said they use third-party testing to ensure the purity of their products and it’s ingredients. Their products also provide links to the companies in case customers want to do additional research.
Kwik Trip did decline to comment about their addition of CBD products to stores across Central Wisconsin.
