Hemp for Fake Hipsters: Urban Outfitters Now Sells CBD

The clothing retail chain is no stranger to controversy, but this may be its most conformist promotion yet.

Urban Outfitters, the international retail clothing corporation, announced it will start selling hemp-derived CBD products at select US locations.

In a press release issued Wednesday, the faux-bohemian clothing giant announced that it’s partnering with CBD for Life to offer tinctures, balms, and other CBD-infused topicals at six Urban Outfitter locations: four in New York and two in California.

The deal with CBD for Life is Urban Outfitters’ fourth partnership with a CBD supplier. The store already offers CBD products from Kush Queen, Shea’s Brand, and Love Wellness. One product to recently hit Urban Outfitters’ shelves is a CBD-infused probiotic cream for treating vaginal yeast infections.

Getting into the rising CBD game may be one of Urban Outfitters’ most conformist moves in recent years. In the past, the company ignited controversy by selling fake-blood-stained Kent State t-shirts, hocking products that resembled Nazi concentration camp uniforms, and for teaming up with a hair salon called Hairroin which went by the catchphrase “Addicted to Style.”
