“As we would for any new industry, Walmart Canada has done some preliminary fact-finding on this issue,” company spokeswoman Anika Malik wrote to Hemp Industry Daily in an email.“But we do not have plans to carry CBD products at this time.”
The wait-and-see posture puts Walmart in the same camp as Coca-Cola. The world’s largest beverage maker confirmed it is eyeing the CBD market but has no plans in place to enter it.
Walmart currently sells hemp oils through its website, but not CBD. Walmart’s exploration was first reported by Bloomberg.
