Kroger to Begin Selling CBD Products This Month

Supermarket chain will offer cannabadiol-infused lotions and creams, not oil for swallowing

(INDIANAPOLIS) - CBD products are coming to Indiana's largest supermarket chain sometime this month.

Kroger will begin selling CBD lotions and creams in Indiana and 16 other states. The grocery chain describes it as a "highly curated selection...reviewed for quality and safety." Spokesman Eric Halvorson says the supermarket won't sell bottles of CBD oil to swallow -- only topical remedies.

CBD oil is in the marijuana family, but can't get you high. Indiana legalized its sale last year, and Halvorson says there's been consumer demand.

There's evidence cannabadiol helps to control epileptic seizures. Medical groups have cautioned other benefits it supposedly has are still unproven. 

Halvorson says he doesn't expect a splashy marketing campaign -- the CBD lotions will be added to pharmacy shelves like any other product.
