If you are a fan of CBD products, you will soon be able to load up on the oil thanks to a recent partnership with CVS and Curaleaf Holdings Inc. The company announced that the CBD products will be carried in over 800 stores when they launch.
“We have partnered with CBD product manufacturers that are complying with applicable laws and that meet CVS’s high standards for quality,” a spokesman from CVS said, according to Market Watch.
CVS is the largest drugstore chain in the United States.
According to the announcement, the products will include creams, sprays, roll-ons, lotions, and salves.
The products are already available in eight states.
From the report:
A Curaleaf spokeswoman could not immediately respond to questions MarketWatch had about the FDA’s position and Curaleaf’s product line. CVS said that it is selling CBD products in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee. Recreational marijuana is legal in California and Colorado, medical marijuana is legal in Illinois and Maryland, but marijuana has not been made legal for recreational nor medicinal uses in the other states.
CBD, which comes from the cannabis plant, has plenty of health benefits. It is also non-psychoactive, unlike the more commonly known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, it still remains illegal to add to food and health products by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Cannabis is currently legal for medicinal use in 33 states and Washington, D.C., while 10 states have legalized the drug for recreational use. States, where marijuana is legalized for recreational use, are Alaska, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Vermont.
