Downtown Lafayette now home to CBD dispensary Pippi's Purpose – Daily Advertiser

Pippi’s Purpose, an Abbeville-based CBD dispensary, cut the ribbon on its new Downtown Lafayette location on Tuesday with plans to offer a variety of CBD products and grocery items in a bodega-style setting.

The shop, located at 201 E. Main Street, is directly across from the new Lofts at the Municipal apartment complex. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

“For us to be able to step into this scene is a tremendous milestone for us,” said the store’s owner, Casey White, who is known as “Pippi.”

CBD, or cannabidiol, comes from hemp plants, which are the same species as marijuana but contain virtually none of the psychoactive compounds that get people high. To be legal in Louisiana, CBD must contain less than 0.3% of delta-9 THC.

White said he wanted his store to meet the needs of the community, which is part of the reason he’s offering a variety of grocery products — ranging from watermelon to tuna steaks — in the downtown store. White said the plan is to solicit feedback from the Downtown Lafayette community to carry products that are needed.
