Cannabis for the Rest of Us – Aspen Sojourner
As one of the first two states to legalize recreational marijuana in 2012, Colorado has long blazed the way in the nation’s cannabis industry, and, lately, entrepreneurial locals have been producing a wide range of products made with cannabidiol (CBD), intended to help ease a variety of ailments.
CBD comes from the hemp plant, which, like marijuana, is in the cannabis family; it has many of the reported beneficial properties of marijuana, without the high. Up until now, its legal status nationwide existed in a gray area. But with the passage of the 2018 Federal Farm Bill in December, which legalized hemp, CBD products will be more broadly available.
