Walgreens Joins CVS in Selling CBD Products
Consumers will soon be able to get CBD products, including creams, patches and sprays, in about 1,500 Walgreens stores across eight states, reports CNBC. The stores will sell the cannabis-based products in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana.
“This product offering is in line with our efforts to provide a wider range of accessible health and well-being products and services to best meet the needs and preferences of our customers,” Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith told CNBC.
Walgreens has yet to name the product lines.
Unlike marijuana, hemp has almost none of the psychoactive compounds. As it's no longer labeled a controlled substance, more businesses have the opportunity to create hemp-based products, from tinctures to lotions and more.
Drugstore chain CVS introduced CBD-containing topicals, including creams and salves, to stores in eight states earlier in March.
