CBD is derived from cannabis, but lacks the “high” marijuana has. 

It’s being used in foods and beauty products, but the health department says they aren’t approved by the FDA and could pose health risks. 

“We have had various reports of adverse health effects across the country, there have been some deaths associated with cbd, mostly synthetic cbd but it has been associated with seizures, other nervous system problems, nausea, dizziness and other adverse health effects have been reported,” said State Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Anderson.
