CBD was one of the breakout stars of this year’s NACS Show in Atlanta. In a first for the show, NACS added a dedicated CBD pavilion to its exhibit hall lineup. The partitioned section, which required attendees to read and agree to a list of rules and to scan their badges upon entering, showcased a variety of hemp-derived CBD products from about 70 distributors.
Products included CBD-infused face masks by CBDfx; Hemp Bomb’s CBD-infused gummies; Reliva CBD’s tinctures and oils; Myle Vapor’s Kyle CBD vape pens; Forth CBD’s drink powders; Hemp Thrill’s energy shots; Natural Healer’s hemp oil herbal sprays; Social CBD’s pet drops; Veritas Farms’ CBD lip balms; and Zorbitz Primo’s CBD Therapeutic Putty, among others.
The CBD section aimed to help educate retailers about the different types of products in the market, as well as to help them feel ready once these products are approved for sale, said Leigh Walls, director of exhibit sales and services for NACS.
