While CBD is one of the hottest trends in wellness right now, Whole Foods VP grocery Dan Epley said the retailer is steering clear when it comes to ingestibles: "We’re staying away from CBD right now; it’s not legal and we know that we’re a big target... when things become legal then we'll jump in at the right moment."
His comments came as the FDA penned 15 warning letters about CBD in one day and leading brands Charlotte's Web and CV Sciences (among others) were hit with lawsuits accusing them of injuring consumers by selling the 'illegal dietary ingredient CBD.'
