Tallulah CBD + Juicebar opens Sept. 16 with what it’s calling the largest product line for people and pets under one roof in Tallahassee.
The new business, located at 1410 Market St., is in the Market Square Shopping Center next door to Chick Salad Chick and Modern Fitness Tallahassee. Owner Ashley Guy said the store will include pet products, edibles and drinks, including juice cleanses made with a cold press machine.
Other products include coffee, gummies, ice cream, honey, chili oil, olive oil, tinctures, vape products, massage oil, tattoo cream and skin care products.
“I decided Tallahassee could use a fresh press juice bar with affordable prices,” said Guy, a former high-school teacher who moved to Tallahassee from Seattle a year ago.
Frequent stops to juice bars were part of her Seattle routine. But, they weren’t in abundance in the capital city to her surprise, prompting her to consider opening a CBD retail business.
Tallulah CBD + Juicebar is the latest local business featuring high-quality, third-party tested products with less than 3% THC. In May, Your CBD Store opened next door to Honey Baked Ham on Capital Circle Southwest.
The trend of increased CBD retailers doesn’t appear to be slowing down. According to a May article in Forbes, CBD sales in the United States are expected to surpass $20 billion by 2024 and cited a study from BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research.
Interest in the CBD products soared after Congress passed the Farm Bill last year, making some cannabis plants legal, USA Today reported.
CBD is non-psychoactive and shouldn’t contain THC. In addition, CBD and THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, are both chemicals that can be found in hemp or marijuana plants, the article said.
Both are technically “cannabis” but hemp must have less than 0.3 percent THC present. Major retailers nationwide are selling more and more CBD product lines, including CVS, Walgreens, Sephora, Ulta Beauty and Bed, Bath and Beyond. According to the Mayo Clinic, side effects may include dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue.
