CVS says it started selling CBD products as more than 800 stores nationwide, including Illinois, last week, according to FOX Business.
CVC says stores in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, and Tennessee will begin offering CBD products as part of a distribution deal with Canadian marijuana company Curaleaf Holdings Inc.
“These products include topicals such as creams, sprays, roll-ons, lotions and salves. We are not selling any CBD-containing supplements or food additives. We have partnered with CBD product manufacturers that are complying with applicable laws and that meet CVS’s high standards for quality,” CVS said in a statement.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive component of marijuana and can be used to treat pain symptoms in some users.
