Two local stores are teaming up to host CBD Madison, an event that will educate visitors through expert panels, plenty of CBD vendors plus a special yoga class

Pretty much everyone has at least heard of CBD, the cannabis-derived compound that's hailed as a cure-all to all kinds of ailments. Now, in Madison, Wisconsin, there's a brand-new festival dedicated to the stuff.

CBD Madison is an outdoor convention-meets-festival that aims to connect curious consumers with the businesses that are making the substance mainstream. The event will take place on September 28 at Breese Stevens Field, presented by local businesses The Green Barn Door and Green Owl Wellness.

“There has been a noticeable increase in the CBD industry in the Madison area just in the past few years, but still the overall feeling in the area is that not many people know a lot about it,” says Ava Janssen, director of marketing and events at Breese Stevens Field, in a email to PSFK. “Our goal with creating CBD Madison was to get the right people together who can talk confidently and honestly about CBD usage, and supply legitimate, trusted and tested products.”

CBD Madison will educate visitors through expert panels, events and plenty of CBD vendors, plus a special yoga class. If all goes according to plan, local interest and trust in the health item will grow even more. Tickets to the event are now on sale.
