It’s about to get even easier to purchase CBD (cannabidiol) products in the US. There have been a number of developments over the course of 2019 and 2020 that have led to the introduction of cannabis products in retail stores, including in a number of pharmacy and grocery chains, and KushCo Holdings is adding to the growing list. The cannabis company announced at the end of last week that it is partnering with United Pacific in an agreement that will see CBD products sold at the company’s retail locations.
United Pacific is dedicated to gas stations and convenience stores and has 350 properties spread out across California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. It operates under a number of different brands, including 76, Conoco, Shell, Circle K, My Goods Market and more, and KushCo is going to introduce CBD Wellness Centers at all of the locations. Each center will feature custom displays that the brands distributed by KushCo will provide.
The first CBD centers are expected to launch in December, and will feature seven KushCo client brands. These include Willie’s Remedy, Social CBD, PureKana, Leafwell Botanicals, JustCBD, Higher Frequencies and B Great, and more are expected to be added later. KushCo says in a statement, “With 53 different SKUs across the sets, encompassing Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate, United Pacific will offer consumers a wide array of product offerings.”
Adds company CEO Nick Kovacevich, “Over the past year, we have made significant inroads into the burgeoning CBD market despite regulatory and COVID-19 related headwinds. The United Pacific collaboration represents a massive new footprint for our brands and will provide an opportunity to meaningfully connect with millions of consumers annually. We will provide United Pacific’s store management team with the training and knowledge needed to position their CBD Wellness Centers for success.”
