Cannabis dispensaries are making sure access to CBD doesn't cut off at the poverty line


ASHEVILLE, N.C. (CIRCA via WLOS) — Clover CBD, a new retail hemp CBD dispensary business, is offering a low-income assistance program to customers.

Hemp CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound derived from the hemp plant and is currently being sold in dispensaries across Asheville. It has a varied number of purported uses, including relief from pain, inflammation and anxiety.

Sean Wilson, owner of Clover CBD, says he wants the product to be accessible to as many people as possible. Clover's program allows anyone living below the federally recognized poverty level to receive 40 percent off anything in the story, plus free samples.

Clover’s program is similar to those of a number of CBD brands that offer customers financial assistance nationwide with a variety of assistance programs targeting those who are low income, veterans, or on long term disability.

According to recent estimates, 1 in 8 Americans live at or below the poverty line.

Wilson says that all of the hemp CBD flowers available at Clover CBD are grown with "best organic practices without pesticides," and produced in the United States. Although many strains are sourced from the West Coast, roughly eight are grown in Asheville.

Prior to coming into the store, customers can fill out a consulting form, so that the staff can get to know their lifestyle and unique needs.
