National Drug Stores Selling CBD, but Not Walmart or Target—Yet

NEW YORK (AP) — Mainstream retailers are leaping into the world of products like skin creams and oils that tout such benefits as reducing anxiety and helping you sleep.

The key ingredient? CBD, or cannabidiol, a compound derived from hemp and marijuana that doesn’t cause a high.

CVS, Martha Stewart, and Neiman Marcus are selling CBD products. Walmart and Target are holding off for now.

Retailers are taking advantage of the booming industry even as its legal status and health benefits remain murky. And the flood of products is only testing how federal regulators can police it.

Retail sales of CBD consumer products in 2018 were estimated to reach as much as $2 billion, according to Cowen & Co. By 2025, that figure could hit $16 billion in retail sales, the investment firm predicts.

CBD has been cropping up in everything from dog treats to bath balms in the past few months. Domestic diva Martha Stewart is working with Canada’s Canopy Growth Corp. to develop new CBD products. Authentic Fitness is planning to sell CBD foot creams, oils and soaps under the Nine West brand starting this fall. CVS Health is beginning to sell CBD-infused creams, sprays, lotions and salves at more than 800 stores in seven states; drug store rivals Walgreens and Rite Aid are now following suit. And the nation’s largest mall owner, Simon Property Group, has hooked up with a cannabis goods maker to open roughly 100 kiosks at its U.S. malls by mid-summer.

Neiman Marcus Is Getting In

Even high-end retailers are getting in on the action, charging anywhere from $12 to $150 an ounce. Barneys New York has opened a shop in Beverly Hills, California, that sells CBD-infused creams along with hand blown glass bongs and other accessories, while Neiman Marcus is now offering an array of CBD-infused beauty products from balms, lotions soaps and masks in five of its stores.

“There’s definitely a huge opportunity for expansion,” said Matthew Mazzucca, creative director at Barneys New York.

He acknowledged, however, the legal hurdles are still hard to navigate and companies should take it slow.

Walmart, Target, Amazon: Not Yet

Indeed, some are doing just that. Walmart says it doesn’t have plans to carry CBD-infused products at this time and Target, which in 2017 sold hemp extract products on its website but then quickly yanked them, said it’s monitoring the situation.

Meanwhile, online behemoth Amazon is staying clear of the stuff. Spokeswoman Cecilia Fan says the company prohibits the sale of products that contain CBD and will remove them from its site if it sees them.

CBD’s ubiquity persists despite very little evidence for all the health claims the industry touts. If you believe in the hype, CBD treats pain, reduces anxiety and helps you sleep and keeps you focused. But most claims are based on studies in rats, mice or in test tubes. Human research has been done but on small numbers of people.

Only drugs that have been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective can make claims that they treat or prevent diseases or medical conditions. Many CBD producers try to get around that by using vague language about general health and well-being.

That seems to be good enough for at least some shoppers eager to calm their nerves.

“We are a more anxious society and people are looking for cures,” said Kit Yarrow, a consumer psychologist and professor at Golden Gate University in San Francisco. “There’s a growing distrust in business and pharma and so people are wanting to find cures that seem more real and wholesome.”

Seems to Work for Some

Amy Nichols, a former food scientist from Indianapolis, reflects that distrust. Nichols, 46, who’s been battling symptoms from autoimmune illness, has been using CBD oils by a brand called Recept that she sticks under her tongue.

“For me, this is a more natural solution to treating symptoms that I am having instead of taking pain killers,” said Nichols, who now works as a sales representative for Recept. “I have more energy. I get more done. I am in less pain. I am more active.”

Different States, Different Laws

CBD is operating within a patchwork of regulations that vary by cities and states. In New York City, regulators are prohibiting outlets to sell CBD-infused food and beverages, threatening them with fines. Other states like Ohio and California are taking similar action. Maine’s governor, on the other hand, signed an emergency bill in late March allowing CBD in food products after state inspectors warned stores to pull them from shelves earlier in the year.

The farm bill, passed late last year, gave states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture authority to regulate industrial hemp, a type of cannabis that is high in CBD. That opened the door to hemp-derived CBD products.

CVS and Walgreens are sticking to topicals. Others are rolling the dice and selling CBD-infused drinks and supplements.

But the farm bill gave the FDA authority over the food supply and the agency recently warned that it’s illegal to add CBD or THC—the compound that gives marijuana its high—to human or animal food and beverages and transport it over state lines. Dietary supplements using CBD are also illegal.

Bigger players like CVS and Walgreens are sticking with skin creams and lotions where the FDA hasn’t specifically expressed concern. Others are rolling the dice and selling CBD-infused drinks and supplements anyway in hopes of a profit, said Whitt Steineker, a Birmingham, Alabama, attorney who advises the hemp industry.

“They have determined the reward is worth the risk,” Steineker said.

With rules and guidance still being written, the landscape is highly uncertain but Steineker expects that to improve.

“Now that hemp is legal, I think the USDA and state departments of agriculture are interested in seeing what type of crop it will be and what its applications are,” he said. “They’ll move with the speed governments often move with … (but) by the 2020 growing season, people will have a better understanding how to operate within the law.”

Premium CBD Oil

Processed in a BRCGS audited and accredited location, follows cGMP practices and all done in an FDA registered facility. Don’t listen to us though, go ahead and read through our customer reviews

CBD Topical Salves

This is the product that started it all for us at Kigh. Our salve uses the same high quality CBD found in our CBD oil and is combined with only the finest, hand selected, therapeutic grade essential oils.

CAN I TRUST AN ONLINE CBD STORE?

Consumers need to be careful when purchasing CBD products online from a CBD store. At Kigh, we have remained true to our mission and core values. Using only the finest quality ingredients in each and every product and providing our customers the best possible support and service was and continues to be what separates us from the pack.

Does it really matter if I buy from Kigh or another CBD store selling products? It’s sometimes very difficult to tell the difference between companies, so for starters, make sure the company does 3rd party lab testing, all of their ingredients need to be of the highest quality and they should all be extracting their CBD using the cleanest Co2 extraction methods. There are many other factors to consider, read about them in our Kigh Times blog article

WHAT MAKES KIGH DIFFERENT

We selected a partner to source our CBD a couple of years ago. The quality of our CBD oil is second to none, which means that any product you purchase from our CBD store, is guaranteed to have the same high quality across all CBD products. We will never resell or white label other company products to ensure we ALWAYS know what goes into every bottle we sell.

I guarantee you that the statements above can’t be said by most companies out there. More than 90% of the CBD companies out there are taking their products from another company, white labeling and reselling. Did we happen to mention that our prices are better than anyone for comparable CBD oil?

MOVE OVER TIGER BALM, BEN-GAY AND BIO-FREEZE

Relief is what started it all for Kigh! Our Relief CBD topical salve has been the best selling product for us since we started Kigh back in 2018 and for very good reason. It is an outright phenomenal product. We spent quite a long time to perfect the recipe for Relief and have been making it exactly the same ever since. The base for the product starts with organic MCT oil, organic jojoba oil and unrefined African shea butter. We then carefully selected each and every one of the many essential oils based on their ability to help reduce inflammation and of course the awesome scent once they’re blended. There is no arguing the fact that combining CBD with top quality therapeutic grade essential oils and only the best organic base makes for a product that will never be beat in this CBD market and we guarantee that you won’t find it any other CBD store unless it has a Kigh logo on the label. .

PRICE MATTERS!
COMPARE US TO OTHER CBD STORES

When you search online CBD stores, you may find that CBD products look and sound similar in nature, assuming you’re looking at 2 reputable companies. One key factor that separates them is cost. We don’t spend a fortune on packaging or marketing because we want to keep your CBD product prices as low as we can. We also chose not to open any Kigh brick and mortar stores since this would have been another huge expense to pass on to our customers. The choice we made was to build a trusted brand with Kigh through our online CBD store and we take part in CBD events so we can meet our customers and answer their CBD questions face to face. We also spent time finding retailers to carry our various lines of Kigh products.

Everyone should be able to afford it. Compare us to others such as PureKana, Charlotte’s Web, Green Roads and others.
