The CBD retail craze shows no signs of stopping, with this new health wave taking markets around the world by storm. Even in countries like the U.K., where the sale of recreational or medicinal cannabis is illegal, that hasn’t stopped CBD retailers from selling a wide variety of products infused with oils often found in hemp.
One such organization making its mark in this emerging sector is Your CBD Store, the retail franchising arm of SUNMED. Founded in Florida in 2018, Your CBD Store now has more than 500 locations across 39 states in the U.S., as well as a burgeoning U.K. footprint.
