As societal attitudes have become more accepting of marijuana and many states have legalized it in some form, the cannabis industry is seen by many as an increasingly attractive business opportunity. In particular, cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabis derivative, has become progressively more popular for its perceived health benefits, including pain and stress relief, acne treatment, and even a treatment for cancer and seizures. CBD can be found in an array of products from edibles to face creams, vaping pens, and topical oils.
