DORAL, Fla., April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Physician’s Grade announced today that the brand’s CBD products are launching in select GNC stores across the nation. Physician’s Grade is focused on creating premium CBD infused products. To do this, they source the finest ingredients and lab test all products prior to sale to ensure potency and purity are to specification.
While other retailers are getting into the CBD space with small trial runs in a few states, Physician’s Grade is proud to partner with GNC as they roll out CBD products in 23 states and the District of Columbia – a first for the major retailer.
“We at Physician’s Grade have been creating CBD-based products for years and are beyond thrilled to be working with a company whose brand values align with our own. GNC is known for their product quality standards and we are excited to work with them to bring this in-demand category to consumers,” said Physician’s Grade co-founders, Chris McGuinn and Robert Brown.
The roll-out for GNC includes several Face Creams, a Luxe Body Lotion, Scalp Treatment, Shampoo and a flagship collection of topicals. The Cool Relief Roll-On Gel and the Advanced Relief Cooling Cream both contain 750mg of pure CBD and are fortified with clinically studied ingredients including Arnica and Emu Oil. Customer demand for these items recently skyrocketed, and Physician’s Grade is excited to share their advanced formulations with a broader customer base.
“Physician’s Grade represents the quality we expect from our products and we are thrilled to partner with them in this growing category to bring solutions to our loyal customers,” said Allen McClard, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for GNC.
