Walgreens has started selling CBD current products in about 1,500 stores in 10 states, according to a CNBC report. The news comes in the heels of its rival CVS, who announced last week that it would start selling similar products in its stores in eight states.
"This product offering is in line with our efforts to offer a wider range of available health and wellness products and services that best meet our customers' needs and preferences." – Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith in a mail to CNBC
Walgreens will roll out the products in Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, New Mexico, Oregon, South Carolina, and Vermont. The company did not specify which brands it would carry.
Walgreens decided not to notify his competitor or last year's crossing of the federal agricultural bill.
CVS plans to carry CBD products in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, and Tennessee.
Faith pointed out that the company's decision was made after "a thorough review and analysis" of the market and available products; although he did not offer any precise dates for when the products would be available and whether they would be available through the company's online store.
