Fulton Street Farmers Market Says No TO CBD Products
CBD products, using the non-psychotropic oils of the cannabis plant, have been a booming business for some. But the Fulton Street Farmers market is saying NO. For now.
The health claims of CBD oils have been touted all over the internet, supposedly aiding in everything from inflammation to quitting smoking. Ever since hemp was removed from the Federal Government's Schedule 1 drug list, CBD oils have been sold at many places, including Family Video stores.
But the long running Fulton Street Farmers Market is taking a wait and see approach to the sale of CBD.
The Market has rejected several applications from people who want to sell CBD products at the Market for this season, angering some local business people.
"We don't feel like we're best equipped right now to be able to regulate those sort of products," Rory Weston, market manager and executive director of the Fulton Street Farmers Market recently told WOOD-TV News. "Because we are a family-friendly market, we just want to make sure the rules and regulations are in place so we can best monitor products we hadn't had on the market before."
Sean Duffy of White Cloud wonders what the wait and see attitude is all about.
