CBD for those who may not be aware is oils derived from Hemp and Cannabis as you will see in Katie Shapiro’s article that there are potentially many benefits. There are many who believe that CBD can assist in pain management, epilepsy, stomach issues and more. But this article is not to discuss the pros or cons of legalization. CBD’s are already legal in all states because it is not the chemical that gives you the “High”. The oils are turning up everywhere in tea, salad oils, soaps, hand creams, etc.
I believe that you may find this information interesting not specifically for the products that are mentioned in the article but for the potential benefits in the CBD oil. Enjoy the read.

The cannabis sativa plant — be it marijuana or hemp — is most commonly processed for two potent active ingredients: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol); oil produced from hemp seed is a common component in many products.
