Walmart has been selling cannabis Christmas Trees online since at least last year (it was eventually removed). Now, with cannabis going legal in Canada and gaining global acceptance, Canada’s branch of Walmart has been exploring carrying CBD-infused products.
A report in Fortune states that Walmart “might sell cannabis products in Canada” soon. But a rep for the discount den refuted that report by stating:
“As we would for any new industry, Walmart Canada has done some preliminary fact-finding on this issue, but we do not have plans to carry CBD products at this time,” spokeswoman Diane Medeiros said in an email, referring to cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants.
She could be speaking facts or she could be blowing smoke. Drugstores in Canada such as Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws Cos. have already received permission from Health Canada to be a licenses medical marijuana stop.
Coca-Cola and major brands all across the country are gauging the CBD market CBD has basically become as common as Almond Milk in coffee shops around the country. And not just in Colorado.
You can find CBD in Chelsea Market’s Higher Standards in New York City or any head shop. The bigger question: does all of this CBD actually work wonders–or is some of it snake oil?
