CBD has been generating quite a buzz lately!

As the supplemental herb grows in popularity, so have the questions regarding its many uses and the legality of the somewhat controversial plant.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound found in cannabis, which includes both hemp and marijuana. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from these plants, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil. CBD can be effective therapeutically when ingested internally or applied topically. It has a wide spectrum of uses in the medical field for relieving anxiety, sleeplessness, stress, joint pain, and a variety of inflammatory issues.

CBD Oil is legal in Virginia and is rapidly gaining popularity. To help us navigate this complex issue, moderator Kirk Schroder, Food Advocate for Ellwood Thompson's has curated an expert panel of Virginia legislators who are taking important roles in shaping the future of CBD and hemp products and their potential uses in Virginia:

  • Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn, Democrat Leader of the House of Delegates (invited)
  • Delegate Nick Freitas, Virginia General Assembly
  • Erin Williams, Senior Policy Analyst, Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
