    Businesses on Ohio are now selling off their supplies, some at a discount, WHIO reported.

    CBD oil comes from hemp or marijuana. Even though it doesn’t contain THC – the chemical that gives people a high, it is used by people with chronic conditions.


    Now, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy said that all marijuana products, including CBD oil, can only be sold by a licensed medical marijuana dispensary, WHIO reported.
