Black-owned, locally-based business Lammar Marie Gourmet popcorn just announced that it will be releasing CBD popcorn in two of its most popular flavors, snickerdoodle and buttery white cheddar. They will be available for purchase online and in-store.
For those who still don't know what CBD is, it's cannabidiol, a chemical in the cannabis sativa plant that can help with anxiety and pain relief, but no, it doesn't get you high. (Unless feeling relaxed and unstressed is like being high for you, which it is for us.) Think of it like nature's Zanax.
"We always want to wow our customers with every new flavor launch and gift offering," says Rialand Lammar, chief pop master and director of deliciousness at Lammar Marie Gourmet Popcorn, in a press release. "With trends showing increasing interest in CBD products, it's only natural we add CBD to our offerings for them."
The release noted that "increased awareness about the health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and changing consumer attitudes toward hemp products are leading experts to predict a growing demand for CBD products. According to Market Watch, the CBD market is set grow by 33.5% between 2021-2026."
"We're hoping people who already love the benefits of CBD discover a new way to enjoy it that's full of flavor," adds Lammar in the release. "We also want people who are curious about CBD to consider giving it a try because they already love and trust Lammar Marie's Gourmet Popcorn. It's already been a big hit with our earliest customers."
Each bag will contain three servings with each serving delivering 30mg of premium full-spectrum CBD. The CBD popcorn is now available in-store and online and ships nationally; to find out more or to purchase, please visit https://lammarmarie.com/collections/cbd-popcorn.
