CBD chain expanding in New Jersey


Hemp wellness joint My CBD Organics is expanding its New
Jersey network.

The Georgia-headquartered franchisor of shops selling Cannabidiol
products announced its Jersey franchisee has tapped R.J. Brunelli & Co. as
exclusive leasing representative.

The Old Bridge-based retail real estate brokerage will be
working with multi-unit franchisee Synergy Capital Partners, LLC on site
selection and lease execution for locations in the state’s central region.

All told, the Freehold-based Synergy Capital, a military
veteran-owned business, hopes to eventually open five to ten locations, with
efforts initially focused on Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties.

In its first transaction, R.J. Brunelli brokered a lease for
Synergy for a 1,500-square-foot inline space at the Stop & Shop-anchored
Colonial Plaza at 1121 Highway 34 in Aberdeen Township (Monmouth County).

My CBD Organics is expected to open in the third quarter of
2021 in the former Math Monkey space at the 178,000 s/f center, which is
located at the intersection of Highway 34 and Lloyd Road. The chain will join a
tenant lineup that also includes Bed Bath & Beyond, Famous Footwear, Hand
& Stone, Smoothie King, and DeMarco’s Catering & Gourmet Deli. R.J.
Brunelli also serves as exclusive broker for the property, which is owned by
Garden Commercial.

The Monmouth County shop will become the chain’s second in New Jersey, joining an initial location that opened in October 2019  in downtown Denville (pictured top). My CBD Organics currently has a total of seven locations in operation in Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey, with the Denville franchise operated by one of the chain’s co-founders.

“My CBD Organics locations offer a wide selection of premium
wellness and beauty products in an inviting, spa-like store environment,” said
Synergy Capital President Brian Judy, who co-owns the business with his
partner, Desiree Uebele.

Uebele added: “The rapid growth of the CBD industry has
saturated the market with cheap, low-quality product sourced overseas or from
biomass facilities. In contrast, all items sold at My CBD Organics shops
undergo third-party testing, ensuring consumers that they are getting the
highest quality, organic products.”

 “CBD has become the
norm for many to help with chronic pain, anxiety, sleeping issues, and other
maladies,” Brunelli noted. “People feel better about taking CBD than pain
killers and other prescribed medications that can create addiction and other
