TRUSSVILLE — Plans to open a new cannabidiol oil store in town are creating a buzz across Trussville.
Currently, the closest CBD store in the area is Your CBD Store Birmingham on Highway 280 near Inverness, but with the success of that location, proprietor B.J. Autrey is looking to expand and has chosen Trussville for the next spot.
Your CBD Store Birmingham was temporarily closed down late in 2018, according to WVTM, due to an interpretation on the legality of CBD oil. However, with the passage of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, and a subsequent clarification from Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, it was determined that CBD derived from Hemp was legal.
Although the 2018 federal Farm Bill has cleared the path for CBD products with an amount of THC registering at 0.3 percent and lower, some municipalities are resisting shops that specialize in CBD products. According to the Shelby County Reporter on Monday, the Alabaster City Council placed a one year moratorium on granting licenses to stores that would receive 10 percent or more of their gross revenue from CBD products.
According to social media for Your CBD Store Birmingham, the Trussville location will be set to open in as little as two to three weeks.
Your CBD Store offers a number of CBD products, including water solubles, infused gummy candies, skin creams and even pet products.
The exact location of Your CBD Store Trussville is not yet known.
