 CVS

CBD is short for cannabinol, the property inside the cannabis plant that doesn’t intoxicate individuals. There are reports that CBD is helpful for alleviating symptoms of many ailments. CBD has become popular because it offers relief to symptoms without having to use harmful pharmaceutical medications.

This led to CVS enacting on the bold move to be the first retail chain to start introducing CBD products. However, they won’t be carrying multiple forms of hemp-based CBD, just topicals like lotions and creams, targeting and combatting areas of physical pain like arthritis. CVS decided to unroll CBD topical products in 800 stores nationwide in select in states.

The future of CBD will be interesting, to say the least. As time progresses, it will be exciting to see the next stores, states, and countries that will begin utilizing CBD.
