Since hemp was federally legalized in 2019, those three little letters "CBD" are everywhere. But the title "Best CBD Store" in Dallas rightfully goes to Royal Hemps. Royal Hemps was established in 2014 and became the first CBD dispensary in Dallas when Ras Judah, the owner of Royal Hemps and Dreads CBD dispensary, introduced CBD to his customers three years before the retail sale of industrial hemp was legalized in Texas. "In the early years of CBD, it was a high level of anxiety and paranoia around trying to educate people, being an open advocate and also having to deal with the pressure of law enforcement," Judah says. "When you mention the history of CBD in Dallas, you have to mention the contributions Royal Hemps made [to help push for legalization]."
