CBD creams, patches and sprays will be sold in almost 1,500 Walgreens stores, the company said Wednesday. The bill, if signed into law, would allow hemp, CBD oil and other products to be sold legally in Ohio, and it creates an industrial hemp program with cultivators and processors licensed by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. "Cannabis is good medicine, and it's time for the legislature to pass medical cannabis", Kyle said in a statement.

The outgoing commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration, Scott Gottlieb, has reaffirmed his stance that it could take several years for the agency to create regulations specific to the marketing of certain CBD-infused products.

The retailer announced that it will soon sell products containing cannabidiol at about 1,500 stores in nine states: Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois, and Indiana.

Brian Faith, a spokesman for Walgreens, recently said that the company's latest product offering is aligned with its endeavor in making a broader array of health & well-being products and services accessible to targeted consumers and meet their preferences as well as needs in the best possible way. If the products are made from hemp, MDARD will issue a license for the hemp growers. CBD for medical use is legal in 46 states.
