Jacksonville, Florida-based Southeastern Grocers Inc. (SEG), parent company of Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is now providing various CBD products across 152 of its stores throughout Florida and South Carolina, giving its customers access to alternative products in various forms.
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is one of the many cannabinoids found in marijuana and hemp. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it does not cause a “high.”
Andrew Nadin, EVP and chief customer officer at SEG, said, ”We are constantly evaluating potential new products for our customers. With the growing mainstream acceptance of CBD-infused items across the United States, we will continue to diligently research additional ways to bring high-quality products that can positively impact our customers’ lives.”
In addition to offering CBD products in select stores, SEG is a member of the Florida Hemp Council. The council’s mission is to create a thriving ecosystem aimed at catapulting the Florida hemp industry to the forefront as leaders in hemp and hemp product production. SEG is working in the state of Florida to move the CBD industry forward and says it is committed to doing so by adding unique products to its shelves.
According to a Gallup poll conducted earlier this year, one in seven adults in the United States claimed to use CBD products. SEG said it strives to provide the most relevant products for its customers as the favorable views of CBD continue to rise.
Select Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie stores now are offering CBD products in multiple forms, including pet and topical, serving as the first conventional retailer to sell multiple varieties in the Southeast. Bi-Lo and Winn-Dixie customers in South Carolina and Florida can visit their local store to learn if the CBD products are offered in their areas.
