"It's growing so much it's getting crazy," Stavola said. "In juice bars, instead of a scoop of protein powder, they're offering a scoop of CBD as a wellness supplement."
In Maryland, MPX last month won final licensing approval from the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission to open its first dispensary, which will be managed by S8 Management, in Bethesda. The dispensary will operate under the Health for Life brand and will open on August 4.
Outside of her work with MPX, Stavola has also launched her own private company called CBD For Life, a NJ-based maker of CBD health and beauty products.
