Circle K boosts CBD offerings in southeastern US

One of the largest convenience-store chains in North America has tapped a California CBD firm to expand its portfolio of CBD products in the southeastern United States.

Circle K says it has brought Newport Beach’s Wild By Nature tinctures and vaporizers to more than 150 stores in Florida and Alabama.

The launch in Circle K’s Gulf Coast Division is only the beginning of what will include “hundreds of more retail outlets on the horizon,” Wild By Nature announced. The privately held  company’s CBD vapes come from U.S.-grown hemp.

Circle K category director Jordan Rizzo told Convenience Store News that selling CBD vapes in gas stations “allows us to provide our consumers with the flexibility of taking their daily CBD serving with them at anytime, anywhere.”

Circle K also sells CBD in Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.

Circle K is owned by Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., a retail network based in Laval, Quebec, Canada. Couche-Tard operates about 9,900 c-stores in North America, approximately 5,900 in the United States and the rest in Canada. It also operates or licenses convenience stores in 22 other countries or territories worldwide.
