Cincinnati, OH-Kroger's throughout IN and Kentucky will now be selling CBD or Cannabidiol infused products at their stores, though they did not state which locations have picked up the products.

The products will supposedly be sold in stores in 17 states (including Wisconsin) and online.

CBD sales will be limited to beauty and skin-care products because the FDA does not allow stores to add CBD to food or sell it as a dietary supplement.

"CBD is a naturally occurring and nonintoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations", Kroger said in a statement.

The predator with a thick "mammoth-like" coat and impressive fangs seems to have been larger than today's Siberian wolves. The snarling beast with its brain intact was found preserved in permafrost in the Yakutia region on Siberia .

CBD-infused products will not be available at OH stores due to state regulations prohibiting the sale of hemp-derived CBD products.

CBD is marketed to help ailments from pain relief and inflammation to reducing stress and anxiety.

That specific market includes products derived from the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa L. According to Hurst, there will be a limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products that have been reviewed for quality and safety. Most CBD is derived from hemp - which was federally legalized by the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill.

Kroger is joining a growing list of national retailers, including Walgreens, CVS, Vitamin Shoppe and GNC, that are beginning to stock shelves with CBD. These products must contain less than 0.3 percent THC - the substance that gives the so-called "high" associated with marijuana.
