(WFLA/NBC) – CVS has started selling cannabis-based products in eight states.

The drugstore chain has partnered with cannabis manufacturers to carry a line of topical products infused with CBD.

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.

The products will only be available in about 800 stores in 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.
