You Can Now Buy CBD on Walmart.com
Back in October 2018, the Canadian division of Walmart said that it was exploring the idea of selling cannabis-based products on their shelves, sending shares of Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT) up roughly 3% despite no concrete plans to do so anytime soon.
A few months later in the U.S., the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, a.k.a. the Farm Bill was passed. This made a legal distinction between cannabis and hemp and defined hemp as “any part of the Cannabis sativa L plant, including all derivatives and extracts such as cannabidiol (CBD), provided that the plant contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).”
CBD at Walmart
Currently, Walmart.com only offers a limited selection of CBD products from only two brands – Procanna and Medterra. That said, there’s a little of everything.
You can get CBD tinctures for humans or for animals. You can also get CBD softgels for humans or for animals. Also, surprisingly, you can get a disposable CBD vape pen.
It is worth noting that all of the CBD products available through Walmart are sold and shipped by discount vitamin seller VitaSprings, which also sells a wide variety of other vitamins and nutritional supplements through the Walmart Marketplace.
Chances are, it will be a little while before Walmart itself begins selling CBD. That said, there seems to be another major retailer going green every day. After all, shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (NASDAQ:WBA) are already up and it has been one hour since the news broke.
