ATLANTA – Kroger will hop on the CBD bandwagon, with CNBC reporting that the nation’s largest grocery retailer will sell Cannabidiol (CBD) in nearly 1,000 stores. Angelica LaVito reports, “Kroger will sell hemp-derived CBD topical products, including creams, balms, and oils, in 945 stores across 17 states.”
Greg McGough, director of Retail Operations for Medical Xpress, Euless, Texas, called CBD “the next gold rush” in last week’s Medtrade Monday, saying, “It kind of fell into our laps that this was the next big thing in health care. We realized that there are true benefits to CBD. It is not snake oil.”
Medtrade SmartSaver Rates went into effect today (June 17, 2019) and providers who take advantage of the lowest possible rates for the show will have the opportunity to meet with CBD-related exhibitors.
“CBD is not slowing down,” said York Schwab, account executive, Medtrade. “So far we have three CBD-related exhibitors: Founder’s Hemp; Miracle NP; and Purwell, and there will be more when the show convenes Oct 21-23, 2019, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.”
