Kroger Will Sell CBD at Stores in 17 States
With over 2,700 locations nationwide, Kroger is a powerful player in the grocery store industry with the capability to influence millions of consumers in America. While it has not been confirmed specifically how many of Kroger locations will offer CBD products, Kroger officials have announced that CBD products will be available to purchase through ship.kroger.com, vitacost.com, and at the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Ironically, the Cincinnati-based corporation will not be able to sell CBD at locations in their home state due to Ohio’s regulations on the sale of hemp-derived CBD products.
Kroger is yet another national chain retailer, along with Walgreens and CVS, that have announced their plans to enter the CBD market.
