New CBD store mixes hemp extract with fruit snacks

News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the 2018 Farm Bill was finalized in late December, and since then, the CBD market has been booming with motivated entrepreneurs, new businesses and more jobs.

PRYME CBD is the newest CBD shop in the Wiregrass, but they feel like they have a few products that make their shop a little bit unique.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring compound found in Cannabis, and PRYME CBD is the newest shop to offer CBD products. Co-owner Blake Brown said that in December the Farm Bill was finalized he thought it would be a great idea to start his own shop after trying it himself. 

“I’ve tried other medicines, prescription medicines that didn’t work or that i had some reactions to,” Brown said. “So, I tried CBD, and we thought it was a great idea to open.”

PRYME CBD has set out to offer products that have unique characteristics, such as dried fruit.

“What they did is infuse this compound into a lot of different products for example, like gummies or dried fruits,” Brown said. “We have a variety of different products, even you know as far as bath bombs.”

Brown said you find most of the same items in any CBD store, but at PRYME CBD, they wanted to offer a variety of different products. 

“If you look behind me, we have a soothe syrup, so it’s actually a cough syrup,” Brown said. “We’re going to bring in some salt water taffy, CBD infused candies. We’ve got CBD-infused honey sticks. I mean, we just went all across the board. We wanted to offer people a large variety for when they first come in.”

Brown said the reason they opened PRYME CBD is because they wanted a place to let people know that CBD is for medicinal use.

He also said they encourage everyone to explore their options in both shops and brands in the Wiregrass, but they want to share what makes PRYME CBD unique.
