CBD Oil Hits the Shelves at Dierbergs

Dierbergs CBD Oil

On June 3, 2019 Dierbergs Markets announced that hemp-derived CBD Oil products are now available at all 25 Dierbergs locations.

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of 100-plus naturally occurring phyto-cannabinoids found in hemp and all cannabis plant strains. While scientific research on its medicinal qualities is still in its infancy, there is mounting consumer interest in CBD as an alternative care option.

Dierbergs started rolling out the products in the spring and now carries items from leading national brands including Charlotte’s Web, Plus CBD Oil, RE Botanicals and Sagely Naturals.

“Customers were asking for CBD Oil,” said Ron Edelen, Dierbergs Non-Foods category manager. “The interest was significant enough that we felt it was time to bring the product in. Now we hear from customers who appreciate its availability in our stores.”

Sprays, drops, capsules, and softgels are among Dierbergs’ inventory of CBD products from these four brands. Products also include hemp-derived CBD Oil in balms, creams and other health-and-beauty aids as well as pet-friendly CBD, which is increasingly prescribed by veterinarians for the products’ purported calming effects on cats and dogs.

Edelen said that Dierbergs stores individually carry at least 35 distinct products merchandised in designated display cases for easy shopping and comparison.

Agricultural hemp-derived CBD does not produce the psychoactive side effects often associated with other cannabis products and it is legal in all 50 states.

In addition to its availability in stores, customers can get same-day delivery from Dierbergs in as little as one hour through Shipt.

Dierbergs Markets traces its roots to a country store founded in 1854 in West St. Louis County. Four generations have managed the company, which had only one location until 1967. Today, Dierbergs employs more than 4,000 Associates in 24 St. Louis metropolitan-area stores and a location at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.
