CBD products are coming to a Kroger store near you


Besides Wisconsin, Kroger will sell CBD creams, balms and oils in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Washington and Wyoming, according to the company.

Kroger is entering the CBD market, by bringing a selection of oils, balms, lotions and creams to 92 stores in MI soon.

CBD - or cannabidiol - is derived from the cannabis plant and can be used to relieve pain and anxiety.

WXYZ is reporting the grocery retailer hasn't announced a timeline for when the products will arrive on shelves.

Kroger's corporate affairs manager told WXIX the products chosen for their stores would be non-intoxicating and "reviewed for quality and safety". While the regulations surrounding CBD are still murky, retailers have started to embrace the products.

At least 100 Family Video stores throughout MI are already selling CBD products - a move that has increased traffic at local stores according to Erin Gardner, the store manager of the Family Video in Waterford Township.

Local and state governments also have their own regulations. None of the products sold by Kroger will have any THC.

Many believe CBD has healing properties, but it has no THC, which in marijuana creates a high. They will be available in the pharmaceutical section of stores that have pharmacies, she explained.
