Here’s an excellent local feature-length article from the Standard-Examiner which delves into various aspects of CBD in Utah…..

…including clinical aspects, legal history in the state legislature, the federal situation and current confusion about what is and isn’t legal (and safe), types of products and more.


“A quick internet search yields scores of websites touting cannabidiol or CBD oil as an aid to relieve pain and anxiety, minimize epileptic seizures, protect brain neurons, halt cancer growth, treat acne and more.

But reaping benefits can still be prosecuted as a crime, even when Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC — marijuana’s psychoactive component — is absent.

Layton resident Colette Hadlock said she uses the non-THC CBD oil as an all-purpose pain reliever and stress reducer, ‘so I can think more normally, be happier, kinder and more organized.’

‘It makes my system function better to help my body heal,’ Hadlock said of the enhanced well-being she attributes to the oil’s use.

Hemp is a form of cannabis with little or no THC. And for some, its use can be life-altering.

Doug Rice of West Jordan credits CBD oil for giving him more quality time with his daughter, who began to suffer epileptic seizures in her teens. Rice serves as a board member of TRUCE Utah (TRUCE stands for Together for Responsible Use and Cannabis Education) and vice-president of the Epilepsy Association of Utah.

‘For Ashley, it reduces the severity and duration of her seizures,’ Rice said.”
