Just when you thought you had a handle on how your company policies align with laws on medical marijuana, along comes CBD oil.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, comes from either the marijuana plant or the hemp plant. Made available to consumers by the 2018 Farm Bill, which allows for production and sale of CBD products.
CBD is advertised as an anti-convulsent, anti-diabetic and anti-psychotic, as well as an aid for pain relief, anxiety, depression and sleep.
As a result, the market is booming for CBD products in oil form, vapors, beverages (e.g., coffee K-Cups) and infused edibles (chocolates and gummies).
