Who’s Open Amid The Lockdown?

We weren’t supposed to, but we ventured out a bit further than our neighborhood today. It started with a bit of cabin fever, and quickly turned into a game of “Spot the CBD retailer”. Much to our shock, most of our favorite local CBD retailers were open.

We weren’t supposed to, but we ventured out a bit further than our neighborhood today. It started with a bit of cabin fever, and quickly turned into a game of “Spot the CBD retailer”. Much to our shock, most of our favorite local CBD retailers were open.

On a quick drive around the greater Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley areas, we found a bunch of CBD-slinging businesses open. Despite national, state, and local mandates for all non-essential businesses to close we found the following all open for business:

  • Big Box Department Stores (Target, Walmart, Costco)
  • Convenience stores (7-Eleven, AMPM, Circle K)
  • Liquor Stores
  • Vape / Smoke Shops
  • Health Food Stores
  • Grocery Stores
  • Nail Salons
  • Pet Food Stores

Our little exploration got us thinking. For starters, are all of these businesses actually essential? If they are essential, how many businesses are really closed right now? One thing is for sure, ALL of those retailers above carry CBD in one form or another. So while Sephora may be closed (they sell a lot of CBD now) it looks like for the most part, CBD is still “open for business”
