Walgreens to sell CBD products in 1,500 stores

Walgreens will sell CBD creams, patches as well as sprays in nearly 1,500 stores in select states, the company told CNBC on Wednesday.

The drugstore chain will sell the cannabis-based products in Oregon, Colorado, brand new Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois as well as Indiana. Walgreens declined to specify which brands the idea would certainly carry.

“This particular product offering is actually in line with our efforts to provide a wider range of accessible health as well as wellbeing products as well as services to best meet the needs as well as preferences of our customers,” Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith said in an email to CNBC.
