In a statement, CVS specified that it's not selling any CBD containing supplements or food additives.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from the cannabis plant -- and is considered to be non-psychoactive.

These products will only be available in about 800 stores in eight states -- including Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee.

So far, the Food and Drug Administration has not approved the use of CBD in food or beverage products.
