Dallas-Fort Worth CBD fans have a novel new way to get their gummies: out of a vending machine.
Such a vending machine can be found at Grapevine Mills, one of 30 malls across the U.S. that are part of the Simon Malls collection and being outfitted with these machines.
In 2019, Simon partnered with Green Roads, a Florida-based producer of wellness products with hemp-derived CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids to get these kiosks rolling.
CBD products are used to help various ailments such as muscle and joint pain, stress, sleep, relaxation, and focus.
Green Roads makes their own products in their own cGMP and FDA-registered facility; their products are already sold in more than 7,000 retail locations as well as online at GreenRoads.com.
Now they're available in what a release calls "intelligent" vending machines at Simon Premium Malls in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Colorado, and hooray, Grapevine, Texas.
The release doesn't say what makes the kiosks intelligent, other than the fact that they have digital screens, and then some wordy words about real-time demographic and sales data. That sounds like intelligence for Green Roads.
Supposedly, a sense of humor is a sign of intelligence, it'd be cool if the kiosks told jokes?
Green Roads products available in the kiosks include:
- CBD Chocolate Bars
- CBD Oils
- CBD Relax Bears
- Sleepy Zs CBD, CBN Gummies and CBD Sweet Sleep Capsules
- Rise N’ Shines Immune Support Gummies
- CBD Softgels
- Muscle, Skin and Joint Relief Cream
- Heat Relief, Cool Relief and OTC Arthritis Relief Roll-Ons
If you've bought CBD products, you know the stuff is not cheap, but kiosk prices are about the same as what you can find online, with a 5-pack of gummies for $7, pain relief cream for $40, and a 30-ML bottle of full-spectrum CBD oil for $70, which you can pay via credit card.
