Walgreens stocking 1,500 stores with CBD products
Walgreens, in some states, will begin selling products made with CBD, a non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.
Walgreens will begin selling CBD creams, patches and sprays in nearly 1,500 stores in select states, CNBC reported Wednesday. The news comes about a week after CVS announced some of its stores will sell CBD topical products.
CBD, a hemp-derived cannabidiol, is a nonpsychoactive ingredient in cannabis that is becoming increasingly mainstream.
“This product offering is in line with our efforts to provide a wider range of accessible health and wellbeing products and services to best meet the needs and preferences of our customers,” Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith told CNBC.
Walgreens will sell the cannabis-based products in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana, CNBC reported. Walgreens declined to specify which brands it would carry.
