Sheetz to sell CBD products at 140+ locations
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.
