CBD Retail Landscape is Rapidly Evolving

By Hemp Industry Daily
After spending years as a niche item in specialty stores, CBD-infused products have found their way onto the shelves of prominent retailers – and the ingredient’s presence and availability may yet increase.

This week, CBD companies announced a number of new distribution deals. Consider:

  • Southeastern Grocers joined the CBD category, announcing it will begin selling a range of 65 CBD products at 152 Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo supermarkets in Florida and South Carolina. The grocery chain will carry topicals, supplements and pet products from Charlotte’s Web, PlusCBD Oil, Medterra, Veritas Farms, Sunsoil, Irwin Naturals and Harmony Hemp. With 570 stores in seven states, Southern Grocers said it will consider expanding distribution of CBD products into additional locations in 2020.
  • In its largest distribution deal to date, Straight Hemp of Arvada, Colorado, said it will sell its CBD oil and topical products in 57 Earth Fare health-food stores across 10 states from Ohio to Florida.
