CBD oil has been in the news, on billboards, and online everywhere you look these days. Unless you’ve been living in a dark hole, it’s hard to miss.

Baby Boomers are well familiar with pot but are now using CBD oil to relieve pain, reduce stress, side effects of cancer treatments, heart health and even to get rid of acne.
