Experts say this chemical compound does not produce a high and may have therapeutic benefits for chronic pain and post traumatic stress disorder. The presentation will explore:

– How CBD oil is made and who is regulating it
– CBD in Indiana – how it relates to Hoosiers and our health
– Which symptoms science suggests CBD may help with, and how CBD works with our brain
– CBD labeling and consumer safety. Is what’s on the market safe?
