Tulsa sees more CBD shops amid medical pot legalization


TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Advocates say a growth in Tulsa’s cannabidiol market was inevitable amid an increase in local CBD shops that may seem to correlate with Oklahoma’s medical marijuana legalization.

The Tulsa World reports that proponents of medical marijuana have fielded questions about whether entrepreneurs are opening CBD shops with the intention of more easily transitioning to marijuana businesses since the June passage of State Question 788 . CBD products are made up of cannabis-derived ingredients but without the high of THC.

Isaac Caviness manages Hemp Rx, a CBD store that opened last month in Tulsa. He downplayed the notion that anticipating medical marijuana legalization compelled him to open his business, saying the store would succeed anyway because of CBD’s health benefits.

CBD products are used to help alleviate chronic pain and anxiety.
