7-Eleven Denies Reports They Will Be Selling CBD Products

Last week stories reported that 7-Eleven would begin stocking CBD products on its shelves by the end of this year. But it turns out those reports were not true.

A spokesperson for 7-Eleven told the HuffingtonPost that reports the convenience store chain would begin stocking CBD products were not true. Those reports began after Phoenix Tears, a company that makes CBD medications and other products, announced a deal with MarketHub Retail Services, a distributor with 7-Eleven. Phoenix Tears said in their press release that their products would appear in 4,500 7-Elevens before the year ended. 

Stephanie Shaw, director of communications for 7-Eleven, said that was not true.

“We have made no agreement or partnership with this company and do not know why they said that,” Shaw said.

A spokeswoman for Phoenix Tears said their press release may have misstated some details and they would "get to the bottom of this.” If by "misstate some details" you mean everything in the release is not true, then yes, some things were misstated.

So if you were excited to head down to your local 7-Eleven to pick up some cannabis oil, you are unfortunately out-of-luck.


Alberta recently announced plans to stop licensing cannabis retailers until Canada's cannabis supply shortage has been resolved—a move some US experts think is the wrong way for the Canadian province to approach the issue. At the end of November, the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC), which regulates the province's cannabis industry, said they would temporarily stop issuing licenses for new pot shops. The AGLC says they made that move because the province simply can't get enough cannabis to supply any more stores.
