DEERFIELD, Ill.— Walgreens reported Wednesday it will sell CBD creams, patches and sprays in nearly 1,500 stores in select states.

The drugstore chain will sell the cannabis-based products in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vermont, South Carolina, Illinois and Indiana. The retailer declined to specify which brands it would carry.

“This product offering is in line with our efforts to provide a wider range of accessible health and well-being products and services to best meet the needs and preferences of our customers,” Walgreens spokesman Brian Faith said in an email.

Last week CVS introduced CBD-containing topicals, including creams and salves, to stores in seven states. As the non-psychoactive cannabis compound becomes one of the hottest ingredients in consumer products, retailers are carefully evaluating the market.
