Prescription CBD bill introduced

Print Article

BOISE — A bill to legalize prescription use of CBD oil was approved for consideration by the Idaho House Health & Welfare committee Thursday.

The legislation, RS25862, was proposed by Rep. Dorothy Moon, R-Stanley, and would legalize use and possession of CBD oil, or cannabidiol oil, if prescribed by a licensed practitioner or physician.

The bill stipulates that it should not contain THC levels over three percent and that the oil must be obtained through legal means.

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive chemical compound in marijuana that gives users a subjective high. CBD is non-psychoactive and is often used to treat epilepsy, arthritis and a slew of other conditions.

The bill was approved for a public hearing through unanimous voice vote without debate or questions.
