According to Lavanya Ramanathan of The Chicago Tribune, the CBD oil fad is here to stay. 


The dizzying rise of CBD is a story of timing as much as of branding. As more states deregulate marijuana, the Reefer Madness stigma that surrounded it for decades seems to have gone up in smoke.But here's why CBD appeals to some who would never smoke a joint after dinner: Take a few milligrams of CBD as, say, an oil slipped onto the tongue or a piece of candy, and it tastes unmistakably like cannabis, which is to say, slightly minty and herbacious, and just a little funky. But cannabidiol's effect is startlingly anti-climactic. It's weed without the high.

But Lavanya Ramanathan of The Chicago Tribune also reports some experts are doubtful and think people are just looking for a new solution for their problems. 

"I think you're dealing with disease states where people are grasping for answers," says Timothy E. Welty, a professor of pharmacy at Drake University in Des Moines. "So they're turning to this and saying, 'This is the answer.' "
Welty has been involved with CBD use in patients with epilepsy, and at least two reputable studies have shown it can relieve seizures. But as for the rest of it - the anxiety and sleep claims, all anecdotal - he's doubtful. "They're not scientifically founded, in my mind," he says.
