CVS Pharmacy is getting in on the CBD-product game

by Amanda Push

Want some CBD cream to soothe your achin’ joints? Well, now your local CVS Pharmacy might carry it.

This week, the massive drug-store chain announced they’ll be offering hemp-derived CBD products in some of their stores, according to NBC News.

CVS Pharmacy will offer the products including cream, spray, and roll-ons in 800 stories across eight states: Colorado, California, Illinois, Indiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Maryland, and Tennessee.

For those of you who still aren’t quite sure what CBD, or cannabidiol, is, let’s get into it. CBD is a chemical that can be extracted from hemp and marijuana plants and will NOT get you high. Instead, the compound is believed to offer all kinds of health benefits. People use CBD to treat aches and pains, anxiety, skin problems, etc.

“We’re going to walk slowly, but this is something we think our customers will be looking for,” CVS Health CEO Larry Merlo told CNBC’s Jim Cramer.

Hemp was federally legalized in December 2018.
