You could soon buy CBD oil at Kentucky Kroger stores, according to the Cincinnati-based grocery giant.
Kroger joins national retailers across the country such as CVS and Walgreens in selling CBD topical products. CBD oil will be sold in Louisville-area stores in Kentucky and Indiana, according to a spokesperson.
The Louisville division -- which covers parts of Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois -- will begin selling a "curated selection" of topical hemp-derived CBD products in select stores and online in the coming weeks, a spokesperson said.
"We will not be selling ingestible at this time. We are offering our customers a highly-curated selection of topical products like lotions, oils, balms and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD," Louisville division's spokeswoman Erin Grant said.
"CBD is a naturally-occurring and non-intoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations. Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety," a statement from Kroger said.
