Cannabidiol-infused pouches are among the cannabidiol-infused products now offered for sale at many Sheetz locations in the region.

People can now buy cannabidiol, or CBD, at more than 140 Sheetz stores across the region, the Altoona-based company announced Thursday.

Cannabidiol products have become popular for a variety of ailments and, although it’s derived from marijuana, it’s legal to sell in Pennsylvania outside of medical marijuana dispensaries.

Sheetz is the first chain convenience store to offer CBD products at this magnitude, the company said.

“This is the next evolution for Sheetz in ensuring we are meeting the needs of our customers, giving them what they want, when they want it,” Ryan Sheetz, assistant vice president of brand strategies, said in a release.

Stores offering CBD in the Western Pennsylvania region include locations in Bethel Park, Connellsville, Cranberry, Ford City, Franklin, Gibsonia, Kittanning, Latrobe, Lower Burrell, McCandless, Monroeville, New Kensington, North Huntingdon, Robinson, Ross, Sarver, Sewickley, Verona, Wilkins, and Youngwood.

Stores will sell topical rubs, patches, tinctures, vape pens, oral pouches and other CBD products. They will be kept behind the counter like tobacco products and those who buy them must provide proof they are over 18.

A list of the locations where CBD will be available can be found here.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
