ASBURY PARK –
Still looking for the perfect gift for a friend of relative this holiday season? Why not try the gift of weed?
Some consumer experts say that Cannabidiol or CBD oil products are top sellers.
“A lot of the CBD products are small so they’re good for stocking stuffers. We’re seeing a lot of those sales,” says Pipe Dreams co-owner Ali Mohamed.
Mohamed says that the recent talk of possibly legalizing recreational marijuana in New Jersey has a lot of people excited.
“This time last year was a different atmosphere,” says Mohamed. “Since Black Friday we've been seeing more and more Christmas shoppers buy these type of gifts for their family or friends.”
Some CBD products include drops, oils and creams.
Gov. Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin met Thursday to discuss a bill that would legalize recreational cannabis in New Jersey. But a vote on the bill is not expected until sometime next year.
