CBD products, hemp production now legal in Texas


CBD stands for cannabidiol.

WXYZ is reporting the grocery retailer hasn't announced a timeline for when the products will arrive on shelves.

In December, the US government made industrial hemp legal.

Kroger's decision to sell CBD lotions, oils and other products makes it the latest major American chain to get involved with the products.

"CBD is a naturally occurring and nonintoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations", Kroger said in a statement. "Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety".

"There are a lot of people that use CBD to relax, and guess what, that's what a lot of people use movies for". While the regulations surrounding CBD are still murky, retailers have started to embrace the products.

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

The products will reportedly be sold in stores in 17 states (including Kansas) and online.

A spokesperson for Kroger says the products will be available in 81 of their in stores.

The company says it will slowly introduce products.
