Bronx bodegas to start selling CBD oil
The United Bodega Association is offering a new product at some bodegas in the Bronx.
Cannabidiol will be sold in 12 bodegas across the Bronx. The Grand Concourse Deli will be the first location to shelve the product.
The group says if they see a positive reaction, they will expand to more bodegas throughout the borough.
Cannabidiol is said to provide positive effects for people that suffer from anxiety and chronic pain.
CBD oil is not illegal, like marijuana, it is an extract from cannabis.
A 1 ounce bottle will be priced around $50, depending on the bodega.
