Premium GradeNorth Carolina's CBD Industry Is Blooming, But Legality Remains Hazy
Cannabidiol — or CBD as it's known — is gaining popularity in North Carolina and around the country. At least six new CBD stores have opened around Charlotte over the last year, and other restaurants and stores have begun incorporating CBD into their menus. All of them are operating in gray legal territory.
Take Lifted CBD for example — the small dispensary/convenience store that opened up off North Davidson Street over the weekend.

Cannabis is illegal on a federal level, but the federal government hasn’t been enforcing the law.
