CVS, according to the Tribune, is now selling CBD-infused products in eight different states in the USA, including creams, sprays and lotions.

CVS announced the cannabis-based products would be available at 800 stores in those eight states.

Products with CBD will be sold in 8 states across the US: Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee.

CVS did specify, though, that they will not be selling any CBD supplements or food additives in their stores.

CVS Health stores will soon sell a suite of hemp-infused products made by Curaleaf Holdings, which owns a Simsbury marijuana cultivation facility.

Joseph Lusardi, Curaleaf's CEO, said, "We've been having dialogue with national retailers for many months now". The Chicago Tribune is reporting that on Thursday, Curaleaf's value "jumped as much as 17%" in Toronto, Canada-which gives the company "a market value of more than $2.6 billion".
