The legality of CBD products across the United States was determined with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. The bill enabled the commercial sale of industrial hemp-derived CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC. The labeling and the contents of the products are tested by third-party laboratories, and the FDA evaluates whether the products comply with the regulation or not.
While legal dispensaries have been selling CBD products for a while now, Walgreens and CVS have both joined the CBD tribe just recently. After CBD was removed from the list of controlled substances, both started selling CBD products made from the industrial hemp plant that contains less than 0.3%THC.
The Use of Cannabidiol and Tetrahydrocannabinol for Treating Medical Conditions
Sagely Naturals offers a few topical CBD creams in select CVS stores. Their Relief & Recovery CBD cream comes in a 2-oz bottle for $19.99, and a 4-oz bottle for $35.99. The Calm & Centered topical cream contains plant-based ingredients like chamomile, lavender, bergamot, and broad-spectrum CBD, and goes for $35.99 for a 4-oz bottle. Sagely Naturals’ final product is the Relief & Recovery CBD Spray that’s sold both online and at CVS stores in a 2-oz bottle that is priced at $27.99.
This California-based company also sells their CBD products at CVS. Their popular CBD topical cooling cream, which helps with sore joints and muscles, is a blend of over 20 organic ingredients among which are sunflower seed oil, grapefruit seed extract, and arnica flower oil. The smaller tube of 250 mg goes for $49.95, and the larger tube of 750mg for $89.95.
To give you an overview of the increasing CBD market in the United States, we’ll list the states where CVS Health Corporation sells topical CBD products in their stores:
The cream is full-spectrum, which means it contains several cannabinoids, including CBD, but crucially, it contains less than 0.3% THC, the maximum legal limit. Each 4oz tub contains 140mg of cannabinoids and is available for $39.99. It is designed for pain relief, and proponents say it does an excellent job of treating their aching muscles and joint pain. Buyers can choose between two varieties: cooling and warming cream.
Also available via select CVS stores and the CVS website is Sagely Naturals Relief & Recovery CBD Spray. It comes in a conveniently sized 2-ounce bottle and is priced at $27.99. The 2-ounce bottle contains 50mg CBD and is infused with essential oils such as menthol, peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus. According to Sagely Naturals, their Relief & Recovery CBD Spray is a quick-drying pick-me-up for easy use on the go.
What CBD Brands Are CVS Selling?
Medterra is another big winner, as CVS announced that it would be selling the California-based brand’s topical cooling cream. The cooling cream that will be available in CVS is a combination of CBD and other certified organic ingredients. The brand claims that its cream provides users with a cooling feeling, making it ideal for sore joints and muscles.
CVS Pharmacy explicitly states on its website that state restrictions apply to Select’s CBD Muscle Rub cream. It is essential to bear this in mind before purchasing this product.
Working in collaboration with chemists and naturopaths, Sagely Naturals began formulating broad-spectrum CBD-based products coupled with potent botanicals. All of Sagely Naturals’ products are derived from organically-grown, non-GMO hemp and contain less than 0.0025% THC. Each product is then quadruple-tested by a third-party laboratory to ensure the highest quality and purity standard.
