Is CBD Finally Getting the Attention it Deserves?

Last week, a chain pharmacy most of us are very familiar with, CVS, introduced hemp derived CBD products to their inventory in 800 different shops, in 8 States around the US!

This is big news, as it means CBD’s benefits are being more recognized in our society and the preconceptions we have about hemp and cannabis are finally shifting.

Which States?

The States where topical CBD products are being sold in CVS stores are:

Colorado

Alabama

California

Illinois

Indiana

Kentucky

Maryland

Tennessee

Why only topical CBD products?

The pharmacy chain’s spokes person has specified that, for now, it will only be selling topical products, like:

Creams
Sprays

Roll-ons
Lotions

Salves
Patches

They made the decision not to delve into any edible products or food additives, like oils or capsules. And they have said that they are being very careful about the beneficial effects listed for each product, since they don’t want to promote it as a “miracle cure”, but they do accept some of the benefits it has.

They have assured the public that the CBD products they’re selling are manufactured by trusted companies that comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

They decided to introduce these products because of their customers, who have expressed, on multiple occasions, the benefits they have found in the use of CBD for different ailments, particularly for pain.

This is amazing news for those of us who advocate natural health alternatives like CBD and Hemp. It means health professionals, and people in general, will be more aware of the benefits and safety of this component and will hopefully contribute to it becoming a commonly used medicinal supplement. Hooray for CBD!
