The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has ruled that CBD (cannabidiol) oil and the products it is used in are illegal unless sold by a licensed dispensary. "Until dispensaries are operational," the board wrote, "no one, including board licensees, may possess or sell CBD oil or other marijuana-related products." The state's initial dispensaries have not opened yet, though they were supposed to be ready by September. The state hopes to have them up and running by the end of the year. CBD is found in cannabis plants including industrial hemp plants, used to make rope and clothes, as well as marijuana plants. CBD oil is purported to help treat a number of issues, including anxiety, epilepsy, inflammation, and pain.
