CBD is coming to Kroger Co.

The largest U.S. grocery store chain has started stocking CBD lotions and balms, with plans to expand the hemp-derived products to 945 stores in 17 states, according to the company.

Consumer demand for CBD, a non-intoxicating compound found in marijuana and hemp that proponents say can help with a variety of ailments, has spiked since the farm bill passed in December. While the regulations surrounding CBD are still murky, retailers have started to embrace the products.

In March, CVS Health Corp. said it would start selling CBD products at more than 800 of its stores.
