No Products in the Bag
People are now buying CBD online vs in-store, so everything from how the customer experience takes place, to the speed at which it’s accessed has changed. In store often results in excellent customer satisfaction from great “bud tenders” and depending on the country you’re in, nice kiosks, store fronts, and all-around enjoyable experiences.
That isn’t the case anymore and the majority of dispensaries are only open for curbside pickup, which relates to CBD. Many US states have eliminated adult-use and limited their pick-ups to medical only, through curb-side as well.
The majority of CBD will now be sold in supermarkets across the states and major retailers like CVS, Walgreens, and Whole Foods, with specialty drug stores and health food stores carrying products on shelves, but unable to open.
The majority of CBD sold in European countries like Greece are still done through brick and mortar, like these CBD vending machines but again, this is challenging during the pandemic and global lockdown.

Elements of Green has also taken a lot of the guesswork out of selecting the best Hemp and CBD products for consumers, providing only products that can be trusted, from premium Hemp/ CBD brands and suppliers.
Without the standard trusted sources for education that take place at dispensaries, and CBD shops, people have turned to experts online like the US Hemp Round Table, Youtube reviews, Doctors, other education sites like TMCI Global and online CBD marketplaces like Elements of Green. Their education is an entirely new experience, and an interesting one at that. Additionally, the numbers of CBD sales across America especially have skyrocketed in the lockdown, and companies like the CDC have urged people to stock up on cannabis and hemp-related products.
The types of hemp and hemp CBD products people are buying have completely changed! With the coronavirus attacking the central respiratory system, it’s important to continually strengthen the overall immune system to protect against the deadly virus. What customers have started doing is stocking up on CBD products with immune-boosting qualities.
