The brainchild of two lifelong friends, Carlos and Daniel. Looking for their “next big move” they decided that they wanted to go into business together.
Their first idea was to open a head shop. However, they knew that their business could be so much more. Head Shops were once so much greater than what they had become. Once head shops were a center for activism and a safe haven for those who partook in alternative culture. Now crackheads go there to purchase crack pipes and K2.
As long as Carlos and Daniel are involved with Chillum, we will never offer these types of pipes or products! You won’t find things like glass roses, oil burners, spice, K2, kratom, or kava at Chillum! Carlos and Daniel wanted to open a store that helped people and educated them against negative stereotypes. The ultimate goal for the store would be to further alternative culture. To celebrate it and to help people at the same time.
Carlos was once the Vice President of the Florida Cannabis Coalition, which simply means he had a lot of friends who started CBD companies in Florida. Upon brainstorming the new business, Daniel and Carlos realized that they had enough contacts to provide a number of different CBD products in their store.
Carlos and Daniel named the store “Chillum”, after their favorite type of pipe! They knew that Chillum could be more than a traditional head shop. Chillum could be a hub for education and activism. Chillum is a celebration of alternative culture. This is where people come to become educated on CBD and cannabinoids. A place where activists like the Weed for Warriors Project and Central Florida NORML gathers to educate and advocate.
1. WE'RE STRICTLY QUALITY CBD ONLY
Our products are in compliance with the 2018 Farm Bill. That means that we source all our CBD Products from the Hemp Plant, they contain less than .3% THC, they are grown in a State where growing Hemp is allowed, and are 100% legal in all 50 States.
Our products are also in compliance with Section 581.217, Florida Statutes, and Rule 5K-4.034, Florida Administrative Code.
We have been inspected and permitted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to distribute Hemp Based CBD Products.
2. HUGE SELECTION OF PRODUCTS
Some CBD stores provide only one brand of CBD and no glass accessories and vice-versa. That is because the store is owned by the CBD line. This provides the customer a limited selection.
We not only offer both isolate and full spectrum products at Chillum, but we also provide a number of different brands and delivery methods to make sure that no matter what the customer’s preference is, we have something for them. We offer everything from CBD Hemp flower, vapes, concentrates, edibles, capsules, sublingual drops, and topicals. We even have CBD for pets!
3. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE
Our dedication to activism, education, and quality paid off when Chillum was awarded The 2018 Best Local CBD Shop in Tampa Bay by Creative Loafing and Chillum continues to provide a place for education and advocacy.
