Jackie Franks, Purdue Extension Educator in Health and Human Sciences, presented “Indiana CBD Update” on Nov. 25 in the library’s meeting room. Those attending the program received information on what CBD is and how it works.
Cannabis Sativa L. is a plant that was developed through selective breeding. The plant is used in agricultural, building, textiles and pharmacological industries. Commonly, the plant is the source of hemp. CBD comes from industrial hemp, containing little to no THC.
In Indiana, hemp must test below 0.3% THC. There is a process in place for Indiana farmers interested in growing hemp. Hemp growers must be licensed. In the absence of a license, any cannabis production regardless of the THC level is considered to be marijuana and marijuana production is not legal in the state of Indiana.
Some states have legalized different levels of use. CBD has been said to treat all kinds of ailments, including reducing pain, lowering anxiety, improving mood, treat depression, lessen side effects of PTSD and more. CBD also interacts with several prescription drugs, so talking with your doctor before trying anything with CBD in it is very important.
Nancy Levernier won a copy of the book, “The CBD Kitchen” by Leah Vanderveldt. “CBD Every Day” by Sandra Hinchliffe is also available to check out at the library. The next nutrition program will be in Feb. 2020
