Retail giants like Walmart Inc (NYSE: WMT) and Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) have also reportedly explored the possibility of CBD sales in recent months.

Kroger will sell the CBD products in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The largest US grocery store chain has started stocking CBD lotions and balms, with plans to expand the hemp-derived products to 945 stores in 17 states, according to the company. The products - which have been gaining more and more buzz - are bringing relief to tens of thousands of people who suffer from chronic pain and anxiety.

Kroger will be carrying products that contain no THC, company officials said.


Details about specific locations, and a timeline for rollout have not been made available. According to Hurst, there will be a limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products that have been reviewed for quality and safety.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is derived from hemp and has been growing in popularity because of its potential health benefits.

The Detroit News says their MI division clarified that Kroger's offerings will have no THC content, which creates the marijuana high.
