CBD is shorthand for the chemical compound called cannabidiol. Despite being distilled from marijuana or hemp, cannabidiol does not contain THC which is the chemical that gives people a psychoactive high.

Known rather for its other properties, CBD oil is used by many, including senior citizens to treat many ailments including arthritis pain, anxiety, depression, and cancer-related symptoms.

Having been sold in boutique and health food stores across Dayton and the entire state of Ohio for years now, CBD oil has recently been redefined by the Ohio Pharmacy Board with a new designation.

Ohio CBD Law

This means cannabidiol must be bought by a patient with a medical marijuana card at a licensed dispensary and must undergo the same testing procedures and rules as cannabis itself.

Since all other Ohio CBD sales are illegal and with Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Program in a state of flux, does that make it totally illegal? No dispensaries are operational yet, so this leaves no one allowed to own or sell CBD oil or any other “marijuana-related” products.
