Kroger, one of the country’s largest grocers, has announced that it will begin selling CBD products at 945 stores in 17 states. Kroger owns about 30 grocery store brands, such as Fry’s, Ralphs, Fred Meyer, Smith’s and Food 4 Less.
Kroger hasn’t revealed the CBD brands yet, but the products will range from $3.99 to $59.99, according to CNBC. The company says that a variety of products including CBD oil, creams and lotions will be available.
“Like many retailers, we are starting to offer our customers a highly-curated selection of topical products like lotions, balms, oils and creams that are infused with hemp-derived CBD,” Kroger stated. “CBD is a naturally-occurring and non-intoxicating compound that has promising benefits and is permitted within federal and state regulations. Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety.”
States where Kroger stores will sell CBD products:
- South Carolina

The CBD products are anticipated to be on store shelves later this year.
