ALTOONA, Pa. — Convenience-store retailer Sheetz Inc. has launched a line of cannabidiol (CBD) products at more than 140 of its stores across Pennsylvania.

To meet the needs and preferences of its customers, Sheetz will offer both isolate and full-spectrum products, including topical rubs and patches, tinctures, vape pens, oral pouches, capsules, pet products and more.

“We are excited to be the first convenience store to offer a broad selection of premium CBD products at this magnitude,” said Ryan Sheetz, assistant vice president of brand strategies for Sheetz. “This is the next evolution for Sheetz in ensuring we are meeting the needs of our customers, giving them what they want, when they want it, 24/7/365.”

As a brand that prides itself on responsible retail, all products will be kept behind the counter and a 100% proof-of-age policy requiring customers to be 18 or older to purchase will be strictly enforced, the company said. Employees will ask for proper identification—such as a valid driver’s license, passport or military identification card—from any customers wanting to purchase CBD.
