Cannabidiol, an ingredient derived from the hemp plant, is a popular trend in wellness. Better known as CBD oil, it’s found in lotions, candles, coffee, lip balm, and many other products.

CBD oil, although derived from the same plant as marijuana, contains little to none of the chemical that produces a high.

The Ohio Pharmacy Board in August ruled that that CBD oil is illegal under the state’s new medical marijuana law.

Today on Wellness Wednesday we take a closer look at CBD oil and more.
