Last week, CVS announced that some of its stores will sell similar cannabis-based products, USA Today reported.
Walgreens will sell the CBD products in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana, according to CNBC.
THURSDAY, March 28, 2019 (HealthDay News) –CBD creams, patches and sprays will be sold in nearly 1,500 Walgreens stores, the company said Wednesday.
CBD is a hemp-derived, non-psychoactive cannabidiol that is becoming increasingly mainstream, USA Today reported.
“This product offering is in line with our efforts to provide a wider range of accessible health and wellbeing products and services to best meet the needs and preferences of our customers,” Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith said in a statement to USA TODAY.

Walgreens declined to specify which brands it would carry, CNBC reported.
The drugstore chain will sell the cannabis-based products in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana, Faith said.
Cannabis-based products got a major boost in December when President Donald Trump signed off on an $867 billion Farm Bill that gave a green light for hemp to be cultivated on a large scale.
