CBD to make its debut at another major retailer
By Robert Struble – July 15, 2019
In a statement released on Thursday July 11, 2019, Green Growth Brands (GGB) announced a purchase order from American Eagle Outfitters (AE) for an exclusively developed “assortment of CBD-infused personal care items such as lotions, muscle balms, and aromatherapy” to be carried in nearly 500 AE stores and online. Alongside Designer Shoe Warehouse and Abercrombie & Fitch, this marks the third major wholesale agreement for Green Growth Brands.
You can also find CBD or CBD-infused products at several other major retailers. Sak’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in NYC carries clean beauty CBD fragrance products from Highborn as well as Mary’s Nutritionals award-winning transdermal patch in their in-house salon. Ulta sells CBD products from Cannuka in all but three states. Urban Outfitters carries products from CBD for Life, and Simon Property Group has struck a deal that has allowed Green Growth Brands to open 108 shops within Simon locations. Barney’s, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, and Kroger’s are among others who have also begun to carry CBD products.
There are also CPG companies still developing CBD infused products. Anheuser-Busch Inbev and Tilray are researching non-alcoholic THC and CBD beverages. Jones’ Soda and Heavenly Rx are developing CBD infused beverages. Coca-Cola is reportedly exploring the possibility of a CBD infused drink. Walmart and New Age Beverages have an agreement in which Walmart will carry the full spread of Marley branded beverages, which includes “Marley Mellow Mood” a CBD infused beverage.
It appears that since the signing of The Farm Bill’s signing in 2018, legalizing the production of hemp, CBD continues to gain momentum in each passing day as it continues to find shelf space at major retailers. As the CBD industry grows and demand for hemp increases so do the requirements of the growing cannabis workforce.
