Grapevine Mills is now installing a CBD gummy vending machine. Grapevine Mills is one of the 30 U.S. malls that will be equipped with CBD machines. All the malls are a part of the Simon Property Group Malls.
Simon partnered with a CBD producer called Green Roads in 2019. They advertise their gummies as wellness products derived from hemp in a cGMP and FDA-registered facility. Green Roads sells its products in over 7,000 locations and on its website.
Green Roads advertises that its mission is to help its product users “do more than just ‘get through’ the day… [but to] OWN it.” The company exists to “help you break the afternoon blahs, kick back when you’re off the clock, and end the day with sleep so restful your smile starts before your eyes even open.”
CBD can reportedly help users with joint pain, stress, sleep problems, and focus.
In addition to Texas, the vending machines will also be installed in malls in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, and Colorado.
The vending machines will sell a variety of products, including CBD Chocolate Bars, CBD Oils, CBD Relax Bears, Sleepy Zs CBD, CBN Gummies, CBD Sweet Sleep Capsules, Rise N’ Shines Immune Support Gummies, CBD Softgels, Muscle, Skin, and Joint Relief Cream, Heat Relief, Cool Relief, and OTC Arthritis Relief Roll-Ons.
Prices range from around $7 to $70. Five gummies sell for $7, a pain relief cream is $40, a 30-ML of CBD oil is $70, and a 30-count of CBD soft gels is $50. The vending machine accepts credit cards.
Green Roads has over 30,000 five-star reviews but there are a few skeptical reviews regarding efficacy.
One review stated regarding the Arthritis Pain Relief Roll-On: “Some relief. I believe relief might be mind over pain … I do not like the film or lotion it leaves on the skin. Other products I have used absorb into the skin. I will need more time to make a more appropriate assessment about this product.”
