Dollar General to sell CBD products in select states

Dollar General is making inroads into the CBD space. 

The Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based company revealed that approximately 20 CBD product SKUs in 1,100 stores across Tennessee and Kentucky, will be hitting its shelves.

In addition, the company plans to expand the product's availability to seven more states — Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and Vermont — by spring 2020.

CBD products consumers in the select markets can find include such topical cosmetic products as creams, ointments, bath bombs, bath salts and face masks. There are no plans to provide ingestible or edible CBD products, the company said.

“At Dollar General, the customer is at the center of all we do, and the addition of CBD items is an extension of our ongoing commitment to provide customers with a curated and affordable assortment of the products they seek,” Jason Reiser, Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said. “As with many of the products we carry in our stores, our decision to offer CBD products is based on customer interests or demands.”
