Over the past two years, CBD in the form of oils and supplements has become widely distributed across the United States, even in places with no level of cannabis legalization. My first clue that it had hit some kind of critical mass was seeing a local restaurant put a sign out front announcing the debut of CBD empanadas. From design-oriented Instagram seltzer to your local pizza place, brands and restaurants want you to order some CBD and eat your feelings. The drug marijuana, which is also known as weed or pot, is the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. The nine states that have legalized both the recreational and medical use of cannabis do require testing of products before they can be sold.
