Cannabidiol, or CBD (an oil from cannabis; marijuana is a species of cannabis), is increasingly being marketed to aging Americans as a wonder-drug for everything from cancer care to joint pain, and research shows those marketing campaigns are working.Older Americans are now the fastest growing population of new cannabis users. But not all CBD products are created equal, and not all will be effective for those seeking therapeutic relief. As the commercial market continues to expand, it’s important to understand what you’d be getting if you buy a product labeled CBD.“There’s been a lot of excitement, but not much education regarding CBD,” says Martin Lee, director of Project CBD, a California-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol and other components of the cannabis plant.CBD is now legal, in some variation, in 47 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. Other types of CBD are available in 30 states as well, and CBD products do not require a medical prescription.
