Kroger stores in MI will begin carrying CBD products this week as the grocery chain becomes the latest retailer to tap into the trendy alternative remedy.

Kroger is entering the CBD market, by bringing a selection of oils, balms, lotions and creams to 92 stores in MI soon.

Consumers are curious about CBD, a nonintoxicating cannabis compound that promises to help relieve problems such as anxiety and pain even though hardly any scientific evidence backs up these claims.

Kroger joins retailers like Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc, CVS Health Corp and Vitamin Shoppe Inc in selling CBD products in some of their stores. "Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety".

The U.S. Agricultural Department regulates industrial hemp production, but the Food and Drug Administration still does not recognize CBD as a "safe" ingredient, the Detroit News says.
