From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — Two businesses in one are opening on Sunday, Dec. 1, in the heart of downtown Trussville
The Pink CBD Store and Pink Suites are celebrating a grand opening and will be offering specials on CBD oil products. The owners, Mike and Dee Edwards, are optimistic about the future of their community-based business.
“I am excited because we are going to have sales and we have a lot of products that other CBD oil stores don’t have,” said Dee Edwards. “We have soap, massage oils, beverages and things for focus and energy.”
The store will carry CBD-infused products including oils, teas, hand and foot wraps, feminine wash, face masks and edible products, including gummies. The store will carry high-dosage CBD products from 6,000 milligrams. The level of THC in the products will be from zero to 0.3%.
Dee Edwards’ inspiration came after her father was diagnosed with cancer in 2016. She began researching alternative treatments for pain in cancer patients.
“I found that marijuana was really good for cancer patients, but it wasn’t legal here in Alabama,” said Dee Edwards. “So I started trying to figure out what my father could take to help with his pain level and that’s when I found out about CBD oil products.”
Edwards has since participated in extensive research, expos, conferences and workshops to educate herself on the use of CBD oil.
The CBD store is only part of the business. Pink Suites will offer business space, including desks, a conference room and a comfortable and warm atmosphere.
“You can close deals better when people feel at home. I really wanted people to have a nice place and have that home feeling when they come in,” Dee Edwards explained.
Interested parties will be able to sign up for a plan to use the space or will be able to pay per visit. Users of the rooms will have access to Wi-Fi.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Pink CBD Store and Pink Suites will be at 3 p.m., at the store, at 193 Main Street, in Trussville. Pastor Mike McClure will join the Edwards for their first day of business.
