Rochester, New York-based Wegmans Food Market, Inc. has entered an agreement with cbdMD, Inc. for an initial launch of five cbdMD SKUs, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based CBD company said in a statement last week.
Wegmans is the first major grocer to include ingestible cbdMD products as a part of their in-store selection, cbdMD said in a statement. The products will soon be available at various Wegmans locations across the East Coast, cbdMD added.
"We are excited that Wegmans has recognized the investment and commitment we have made to delivering superior CBD products to consumers," said Kevin MacDermott, president of cbdMD, in a statement. "For us, this is a springboard into the grocery channel, and we are thrilled to be working with Wegmans, as leaders in our respective categories, to bring quality and effective cbdMD products to more customers."
Items included in the initial launch are Apple Cider Vinegar and Immune Boost CBD gummies, and Calm and Focus CBD capsules, cbdMD said. Other items to be available soon will be cbdMD's CBD PM NSF Certified for Sport softgels, the first CBD product to earn the NSF Certified for Sport title, the company said. "This will mark the first time that a product with this certification has been offered at a nationwide retailer," cbdMD said in a statement.
Wegmans employs 52,000 associates and operates 108 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts and North Carolina.
