Steve Beshear, governor of Kentucky, has signed Senate Bill 124 into law that which will legalize CBD (cannabidiol) for those who need it medicinally.
CBD oil has been shown to drastically reduce seizures in both children and adults suffering from epilepsy while producing none of the “narcotic effects” found in THC.
State universities who have a school of medicine will be permitted to produce and distribute CBD, the non-psychoactive component found in marijuana, to patients that are deemed qualified by university physicians.
Patients who have enrolled in a trial approved by the FDA will be permitted to be administered the cannabis extract as well.
The state of Utah also legalized CBD for medicinal purposes last month.
