ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- In the age of Netflix and movie streaming an unlikely business is finding new found success: Family Video.

The movie rental chain is seeing increased revenue from an unlikely new business venture of selling CBD products in store. The CEO of the company had experienced pain relief from CBD infused balms and wanted to put the products out in communities where these types of items aren't readily available. So far, business is booming.

"Yeah a lot of people are wondering why we sell CBD with videos,” says district manager Brianna Carlson.

“I mean it's really just about convince. We care about our customers, so if there is something more natural out there for them that they're not going to have the terrible side effects, we're doing to give that to them."
