Dillons to sell CBD lotions, oils, creams

Kroger Co. said on Tuesday it would start selling cannabis-based products in 945 stores, joining the growing number of retailers that are trying to tap the demand for cannabidiol (CBD) products.

House Bill 1325 makes it legal to produce, process and sell hemp products, like CBD oil, in Texas.

The representative added that the items will be topical products, such as lotions, balms, oils and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD.

Kroger, the nation's largest grocery retailer and owner of Pick 'N Save and Metro Market stores, will sell CBD in almost 1,000 stores including Wisconsin, but it won't sell any CBD-infused groceries yet.

Not included in Kroger's plans are selling CBD food, drinks, or supplements not yet permitted to be sold by the FDA.

CBD products have been gaining popularity by bringing relief to people who suffer from chronic pain and anxiety.

CBD-infused products will not be available at OH stores due to state regulations prohibiting the sale of hemp-derived CBD products. Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers, which have been reviewed for quality and safety. These products must contain less than 0.3 percent THC - the substance that gives the so-called "high" associated with marijuana.
