ST. PAUL, Minn. —Cannabidiol (CBD) manufacturers aren’t letting the coronavirus pandemic hinder their presence in convenience stores.

This month, CBD producer Leafline Wellness launched its new Happy Place Gummies for the c-store space. The company did not specify which c-stores the product will arrive in but has confirmed that it will debut in Midwestern-based c-stores in August.

This comes on the heels of Leafline hiring three c-store experts to increase its activity in the space. They include Jason Schreiber, vice president of sales, who has more than 25 years c-store industry experience; Rachel Quintanilla Albertson, vice president of brand marketing, who has worked in c-store marketing for the past 27 years; and Sarah Odde Lynch, chief revenue officer, who brings two decades of food and beverage marketing experience to Leafline’s team.

"Though it’s a new team to Leafline, these three experts come to us with a combined 60 years of experience in the convenience industry,” said Colin Kelley, president of Leafline Wellness, St. Paul, Minn. "The remarkable skill set Sarah, Rachel and Jason bring to Happy Place is significant.”
