The products will include CBD patches, creams and sprays and will hit the shelves in Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana.

The drugstore chain will sell CBD creams, patches and sprays in almost 1,500 stores in select states. But the quality of CBD they are getting from the producers is a major problem for the companies producing CBD infused products.

Sara Kyle has introduced several bills related to medical marijuana and reported she was happy with the stores' plans.

As American consumers register a high level of interest in the increasingly decriminalized cannabis market, CBD products have emerged as a seemingly innocuous and potentially helpful way to experiment - and mainstream brands and retailers want in. "Cannabis is good medicine, and it's time for the legislature to pass medical cannabis", Kyle said in a statement.

(Undated) - Walgreens is set to begin selling CBD products in OR and eight other states. Research firm Cowen has predicted the market for CBD to reach a value of $16 billion by 2025. Therefore, it's now illegal to add CBD into food products or drinks or sell it as dietary supplements. You can also get CBD softgels for humans or for animals.

CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabis ingredient that was decriminalized late previous year by the USA government, is poised to grab some $4.3 billion in the consumer products market, according to information sent to Retail Dive from Nielsen, which recently partnered with cannabis analytics firm Headset in tracking the sector.

On March 28, 2019, the Ohio Senate, by a 30-0 vote, passed a bill to legalize hemp and hemp-derived CBD and sent it to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
