CBD made it to the big leagues of retail — albeit briefly.
CW Hemp, the Denver-based company that bottled up “Charlotte’s Web” cannabidiol-rich oil, landed a selection of its hemp-derived extracts on Target.com, CW Hemp announced Thursday morning.
But by Thursday afternoon, the CW Hemp products were no longer to be found on the Minneapolis-based retail giant’s website.
The Cannabist had verified earlier Thursday that Target’s e-commerce site listed four CW Hemp products — hemp capsules and oils (see a screenshot below). The products, which could also be accessed with a search for “CBD oil,” were shown under the herbal supplements category.
However, by the early afternoon, the searches for “CW Hemp” returned with: “no results found.”
In a statement emailed to The Cannabist on Thursday afternoon, a Target spokeswoman said:
“We started carrying Charlotte’s Web hemp extract items last week on Target.com. After further review, we have decided to remove it from our assortment.”
The Cannabist made multiple attempts to contact officials at CW Hemp, but they have not commented directly about the products’ removal from Target’s website.
