The retailer also aims to stop selling e-cigarettes in all stores
Rite Aid said it will start selling CBD creams, lotions and lip balms in Washington and Oregon this month, following other drugstore chains in testing public demand for cannabis-based consumer products, the company announced Thursday.
“Rite Aid has heard from many customers about their interest in purchasing CBD products,” the company said in a statement.
CBD products will be sold in more than 200 Rite Aid stores across the two states. Walgreens and CVS also recently introduced similar products in some of their stores. All three drugstore chains will sell topical products.
