The new calm, cool and collected CBD shop

We all need some relaxation during these stressful times, whether from school, work or everyday life. Luckily, Wellmart, a new CBD shop on the northeast corner of the Colorado State University campus, has exactly what you need, selling a wide arrangement of CBD products from moon rocks to pre-rolls.

Started in Northern Colorado just three years ago by Craig Corban, chief executive officer of Wellmart, Wellmart began as a strictly online business selling hemp and CBD products after Corban saw how CBD helped his family members turn their health around for the better and wanted to share the healthier alternatives with others.

Along with Corban is his business partner Kevin Larmon, who has known Corban for several years. Larmon started as an advocate for CBD and its benefits and got involved with Wellmart a little over a year ago. 

“It’s the only thing that touches my degenerative disc disease,” said Larmon.

After rising to the top of the ranks for their moon rocks, they opened a retail store in Loveland before eventually closing it due to COVID-19 and moving to Fort Collins instead.

“We love our customers, treat (employees and customers) like family and want to give everyone a truly great experience when they come into our shop.” -Kevin Larmon, Wellmart business partner

“We’re all originally from up here, so we wanted to keep everything at home,” Corban said.

Landing the lucky spot in between The Mayor and Pizza Casbah, Wellmart is just a short walk away from the Lory Student Center, making it easily accessible to interested college students.

Straying away from CBD flower’s standard look — brown and dry — Wellmart provides Fort Collins with high-quality CBD flower created to mimic the marijuana flower look, minus the THC. They also produce their pure CBD in many different forms for all to find their niche and enjoy. 

Not only did they want to keep it at home for their retail store, but they also keep it at home with their glass collection. With blowers from Denver, Greeley and Fort Collins, Wellmart wanted to provide the highest quality glass for their customers while supporting local glass blowers. 

“We just find that local blowers take a lot more time and care into their actual glass pieces than you do finding just mainstream glass,” Corban said.

What sets Wellmart apart from other shops is that they deliver. With just a $20 minimum, customers can order everything from CBD flower to glass pieces and get it delivered right to their front door. If you’re within five miles of the shop, there’s no need to get out of bed to shop their selection.

“We deliver so our customers don’t have to go out in cold weather or risk their safety driving when they shouldn’t,” Larmon said.

With a humble goal, easy accessibility and convenient delivery, Wellmart is excited to be a part of the Fort Collins community and provide the highest quality products and services to anyone and everyone. 

“We love our customers, treat (employees and customers) like family and want to give everyone a truly great experience when they come into our shop,” Larmon said.
