Kroger Latest To Join List Of Major Retailers Selling CBD Products

Kroger Latest To Join List Of Major Retailers Selling CBD Products”

Kroger's decision to sell CBD lotions, oils and other products makes it the latest major American chain to get involved with the products.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a product that comes from the cannabis plant. "Texas will be a leader in hemp production, and we will be submitting our plan and writing rules to follow the 2018 Farm Bill and the law recently enacted in Texas". CBD products can only contain up to 0.3 percent THC - tetrahydrocannabinol - which means they do not cause the psychoactive effects that marijuana users experience.

Earlier this year, Michigan's regulatory agency that oversees marijuana, the Bureau of Marijuana Regulation, announced that CBD products would not be regulated as marijuana if the THC content is below.3% - that move has allowed for a growing market of CBD products.

In Michigan, 92 of the 120 Kroger locations will carry CBD. CBD is a naturally-occurring and non-intoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations.

Kroger stores will be the latest retailers in IN and Kentucky to sell CBD products.

However, regulations around legal use of CBD oil varies in many jurisdictions.

The grocery chain's corporate affairs manager for its MI division, Rachel Hurst, said the company will begin the rollout this week in 17 states, according to The Detroit News.
