Some local CBD stores sell products of unknown origin

Back in 2012, a massive influx of new vape stores started pouring into the cities in our state. They took empty storefronts from strip malls that had sat empty in the years since the 2008 Great Financial Recession. Many assumed that these new vape stores were the beginning of an exciting new market for tobacco consumption, a single 1 that was posing dire threats to the cigarette industry. I wouldn’t pretend to remotely understand a market that is of no interest to me, but I suppose that Big Tobacco was able to push many changes to the PACT Act that took a big blow to the nicotine vape industry over the past year. A Friend of mine who quit smoking cigarettes plus moved to vaporizing e-juice was so miserable when they found out they were no longer allowed to order their products from online retailers. It moved all sales to physical stores plus took a pretty big blow to the industry in a short span of time. But oddly enough, a lot of the few existing physical nicotine and vape stores in our section were already out of company before this change happened. So by the time it had finally occurred, there weren’t quite as frequent vape stores as there were just a few years prior. Most of ours became CBD stores around mid-2019 after hemp had been broadly legalized for at least a year. Even though some of them have been here for essentially 3 years, they still carry sketchy products that I can’t trace to reputable sources. This is worrisome if the CBD could have residual solvents leftover from the initial extraction process.
