There are now big purple vending machines set up through out the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. At first glance, these machines look like any other touch screen vending machine, but when you look a little closer, you’ll notice they are a little special. These purple machines are actually the first-ever CBD airport vending machines.
The company HempFusion has launched the first CBD vending machines in the world’s busiest airport, and it’s totally legal because it does not contain any traceable amounts of THC, which is found in cannabis. Essentially products are not created to get travelers high, but to offer medicinal stress relief states the company’s ambassadors.
“This whole hemp, CBD thing can be very technical and confusing, and we just wanted to make it fun,” said HempFusion co-founder and president Jason Mitchell, a board-certified naturopathic doctor. “That’s the whole idea of this Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson kickoff of our airport campaign that’s going to run through January is to simply make education fun and expose people to who HempFusion is. But, even more important that that hemp and CBD are valuable and for good reason,” Mitchell added.
According to Mitchell, their most popular products are those dedicated to stress relief and the holiday season is typically one of the most stressful times.
“Our product takes on occasional stress by combining the power of CBD, omegas, terpenes, and Ashwagandha, which has demonstrated mood supporting properties,” Mitchell said.
The CBD vending machines are in the atrium of the airport, before the security check points. They operate daily from 8am to 8pm.
