CVS Jumps Into The CBD Business

CVS Pharmacy set to sell cannabis-based products in eight states.

The hemp-derived CBD products will be available in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee. The line will include creams, sprays, and roll-ons that provide an alternative source of relief. Hemp has higher concentrations of CBD than its cannabis cousin, marijuana.

THC, the psychoactive chemical that causes the high, is found in marijuana, but not in CBD items. CVS announced the cannabis-based products would be available at 800 stores in those eight states.

Since the FDA ban it, the company won’t be selling any CBD-based supplements or food additives.
