CBD: The Cannabis Trailblazer

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

CBD, or cannabindiol, is the latest big thing to hit the consumer packaged goods market. Emerging in the quasi-legal murky zone between cannabis dispensaries, head shops, health food stores and on-line cure all’s, this ingredient is hot but complicated. However, it’s showing up in everything from pet treats, eye cream, and anti-depression supplements, to Willie’s coffee. Gain a deeper understanding into the science, physiology, legality, sources, and uses of this special phytochemical. Plus, we’ll examine CBD’s current regulatory status, as well as what’s next for this popular cannabis compound.
