Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is an extract from the cannabis plant that’s popping up in everything from cookies to cocktails.
Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and legal in all 50 states, which means it won’t get you high. But it may still make you feel good.
CBD is often celebrated for its medicinal properties and used in treatments for a range of conditions from epilepsy to anxiety and depression. It’s available in a number of forms, including sublingual oils, edibles, vapors and even infused into food and drink.
Here’s where to find CBD around town.
