The Future of CBD in Indiana is Looking Brighter Than Ever

For the past several months the legality of CBD in Indiana has been a rollercoaster. The Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill had declared that it was illegal to sell CBD products in Indiana regardless of THC content and the use of CBD was limited to a select few individuals who suffered from treatment-resistant epilepsy which had to be registered with the state. But now, with House Bill 1214 on its way to Senate, there is hope for those living in the state who had previously used or are looking to purchase CBD products.

CBD Poses No Public Health Risks or Potential for Abuse According to WHO Report

According to a recent report filed by the World Health Organization's (WHO) Expert Committee on Drug Dependents the use of naturally occurring CBD, found in cannabis, is well tolerated by the body and not associated with any potential health risks. In addition the authors of this report also admit that CBD "exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential".
