Pilcher-McBryde Drugs and Carter Drug Co. are now selling CBD products in their pharmacies in Selma. The brand being offered is Ananda. Ananda uses Kentucky-grown hemp to make its CBD products.
According to Alabama law CBD products cannot contain more than 0.3% THC, the Selma Times-Journal reported.
Customers purchasing the products can scan the QR codes to see the exact ingredients of each product. That QR code also provides information regarding test results, when the crop was grown and where it was grown, among other information.
Pharmacist and owner of Carter Drug Co. Tim Williamson said, “You know what you’re getting. We know what farms this comes from. It’s not grown in Europe, it’s not grown in China, it’s grown right here in the states. As pharmacists, we’re looking for healthy alternatives. This is a natural product that doesn’t have any negative side effects.”
Alabama CBD users have an advantage with products being available at pharmacies because there is a pharmacist on-site to answer questions about CBD and potential drug interactions.
