INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – With hand sanitizer sold out in most stores, some companies you wouldn't think of are trying to help fill that void by making their own.

Total CBD is one of them.

And it's helping them keep their two central Indiana stores and others in southern Indiana and Kentucky in business.

A company spokesperson tells 13News it was relatively easy for them to start making it.

That's because ethanol is the main ingredient required in hand sanitizer and they also use ethanol to extract CBD from the hemp leaf.

Now, they're selling 2-ounce and 5-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer in addition to sanitizer infused with CBD.
